Anyone know if this is okay for a RIB.

I went in to Maplins today and had a look at it. It does say that it needs an airflow, so I don't know how that will work inside my console and that it must not be placed near vibration (Such as a Sub Woofer - Wonder if that means a bouncing RIB as well). It also has lots of exposed connections that probably wouldn't stand up too well to the marine environment. I think I'll cover the connectors with vaseline.

Its a good price though and if I keep the reciept and it packs up within the year I should be able to get another one.

Here's the speakers I'm looking at linking up to it.

Anyone know if this setup will give some good loud music with plenty of oomph or am I going to need a sub woofer somewhere as well. (Not too sure where I'm going to fit that though).

not sure if you ordered yet but .....

here are the speakers i fitted, are jvc items and very good price below

i paid 50 quid for mine from ron hale

as far as an amps is concerned i have a sony xplod, many said it would not last very long at all but it seems to be going fine currently (that is the kiss of death i know)
it was 49 quid reduced from 99 i think.

plenty of spray and cover the connectors with liquid tape and bobs your uncle
