For single color, you just need a switched 12 volt 2 conductor independent of the speaker leads. 18ga is more that plenty. Controller is not needed for single color, just switch, but it can be used.

A typical 6 or 6.5" would require a 5" or 5.125" hole. There are a lot more options in this size, especially if you want to go with an actual marine speakers. You will need space for about 7" dia.

12ga is more than enough to support a pair of underwater LEDs. No disadvantage to using a larger ga wire.
