I'll second no holes in the boat... bookshelf speakers are better, and magnetically shielded speakers better still (see comment about compass and magnets).

I've found marine speakers are usually power hogs... 50w peak is probably barely enough to hear any distance (over rushing wind/water noise while doing 6 knots)... I had to put an additional 100w amp on mine, but then my bookshelf speakers are below.
I have a bookshelf unit velcro'd to the wall above my settee. It's got a radio, CD, and iPod port. At anchor it's more than enough. At sea it's enough for some background music.
