    I have a 270 and I have not installed speakers anywhere, I just wanted to let people know that the thread is still being read.
    I wouldn't think you would have an issue putting speakers there. Just the inherent fear of cutting a big ass hole in the boat. other than that....
    do you have the "Sports Arch" on your boat? Most people put speakers there, that face aft. I do not have the arch, but my stereo is plenty loud without the aft speakers.

    No sports arch or tower--that would be too easy! :) I'd like to put a switched set back there that I can turn on and off for when we sit in the cove and play/float behind the boat to make it easier to hear. We will see if I have the guts to cut the hole!

    That "Cutting the Hole" thing would definitely hit my nerve center. However I was having no issues with that while I was considering adding a Windlass. I did talk myself out of it though. Too much money, too much wire. I wonder if you could put some Bazooka style speakers on some sort of arm on either side so that you are looking at just the 3 mounting holes plus the wire. Those things are seriously loud and distortion free. I think it's worth looking into.
    buuuuut....you know what they say... No Guts, No Glory..
