I put mine where the holes were already cut. In the center console. Two in the front facing the bow and two in the rear facing the stern. Sounds fine.

If you are going to have to cut holes, then you have more options. Just remember you will have to run the speaker wire. So if you are going to install the stereo unit in a center console or t-top electronics box, the center console may end up being the easiest place to run speaker wire.

Short of that - the answer is where ever you want! It is your boat after all!

I put two in the sides in the back of the boat, next to the leaning post and two up top in the electronics box.

I had 2 speakers in the sides about mid ship and I just added 2 more and I installed them in the front of my console pointing toward the bow.

With the space in the console you will get better bass sound.

I really wish the ones that are mounted on the sides were more toward the cockpit but with my layout it is not an option, plus I am too lazy to move them
