Default Boat Install

Hello, I have a MBTA8250D that I will be installing on my Sea Ray 290 Sundancer cruiser. I am trying to figure out the best location with minimal wiring hassle. Can the tube be placed out in the open, such as on the cockpit floor under the helm? Does it need to be in a cabinet or locker, and if so, do I need to cut a hole in the locker for the driver (like needed in a free air install)?

How about installing in the cabin? Although we spend most the time in the cockpit, would the bass output enough sound from that location to be heard while out on deck?

Would like some recommendations please.

Thanks

The attached picture, will give you an idea of the ideal placement for the Tube, in a boat install.

You can place it in a cabinet or a locker, however, you will need to make a vent, this can be in any shape, round, rectangle, etc. What is important here, is that air is allowed to flow.
