I did drill start holes and just used the bit on the hole saw as a pilot. Here`s my current project I used it on.

The subs in the rear bench will hit hard.. They make a nice enclosure. You are going to have one he// of a system..

"We normally drive to the cove, shut the engine off and hang out, so the majority of listening will be while parked."

Question for those who hang out in the water or on the beach behind their boats since it seems when the music is loud enough for those in the water it is freakin too loud in the cockpit-

Has anyone found or made an enclosure that could be placed on the swim platform or sun pad that would be directed behind the boat? Is there something decent sounding that is light enough to be hung from the bimini frame? Would the sound from the internal facing and external facing speakers stay in sync or sound funky?

You could get a wake tower speaker systems. They aren't something you'd want to leave on the swim platform though. You could attatch them to a bimini though too...

You could always do something permanent, like mounting speakers or HLCD's on the transom. You would probably want to have an equalizer with zone control so you can turn the transom speakers off when you're not using them.

A few boat makers are starting to offer speakers on the back of the boat as a factory option, crownline comes to mind.

A jig saw with a scroll blade will work if you have enough room to turn it. It will take about one blade per hole. Go slow and try not to create too much heat the blade will last longer.

I have used a Dremel with a circle cutter and rotozip bit and it worked well. Or just use a Rotozip with a circle cutter. With these, you can set the depth and cut the panels from the back side without going through the vinyl.
