Anybody install speakers under seat?

Has anyone installed their speakers on the plastic fronts of the seat support? I am wanting to avoid mounting speakers on the roll bar because of my enclosure, and head-space and was wondering how well speakers work from down there.

I didn't mount them under there but I did mount my square speaker behind the headrest with no issues for my canvas enclosure
it works perfectly .

I was going to use the same spot for speakers however changed my mind as I think that you won't be able to hear them over engine noise etc. I think up near your head would work better.

It would be better but my primary use is for tunes when not driving but working in the barn or yard. I figure all the hard plastic will bounce the sound out.

I blame Rob and James for making me need new tires & safety harnesses.

Cut the holes in anticipation of the amp and speakers arriving tomorrow.

Thanks for the link. Through the power of Google I also found a cool idea for using $5 roof vent flashing. I'm trying it out on the kick panels for now. So far so good! Have to wait til Monday for the speakers and radio from Amazon tho and I'm out of town all next week.
