I agree that cockpit speakers are nice. Just take into consideration 
that most speakers, including ones labeled as "marine" can be pretty 
vulnerable if you get pooped. You may find that you suddenly have two 6 
inch diameter  holes in a very inconvenient location! I have a pair of 
nice poly-planars, but I added a glassed in "box" behind them, so if 
they get burst by a wave, the water hopefully won't go below. These 
speakers are magnetically shielded, and have never cause any compass 
trouble whatsoever. One of them is mounted directly behind the mount for 
my tiller pilot.
