not really, think about how you would wire them before cutting holes

I was kinda hoping not.... but then, I'm into anchors and warps and chains and sh1t, and I appreciate that that's not everyone's bag

EDIT: I'm assuming we're talking BFO speakers here!

you would hope nice white waterproof speakers with plastic guards on the backside, i thought of anchors but i think there's another locker fwd of that one, i'd still like to know what he's going to do with the wires, them moulded decks they don't put trunking fwd usually

Circular holes would not affect the structure of the boat IMHO. circular holes transfer pressure quite well as opposed to any with 90 degree' bends just keep that in mind if you chose speakers that are not circular.

Would definitely investigate the ease of getting wires run to location before i went any further.

Good luck with your project.
