I'm actually thinking about fitting an old car radio/cassette player under the seat now (it helps that I've got a couple of the old Ford ones lying around to experiment with). It occurred to me that it's very easy to plug a cassette adapter in which does run ok from the same cheap mp3 player I was going to use.

The radio/cassette hooked up to the amp plus the pair of 120w weatherproof speakers I bought should hopefully do the trick.

I did have a quick look at Car Cd players on Argos tonight but couldn't think of a way of linking it up to a MP3 player. Never thought about a cassette adaptor. Good idea.
Just one thought that has come to my notice. You might want to think of some way to control the volume that's accessible. Stop starting as we sometimes tend to do on our outings means one second the sound is fine because your blatting along and you've got the volume up loud. The next you stop for some reason and the music is too loud. Becomes annoying. I need to get one of those wireless receivers when I've got some spare money

Am I? This is news to me, but I'll sell you anything given half a chance.

I do have an Eagle Loudhailer to hook up to a VHF for sale - but not sure that's what you're after!

I was actually planning on velcroing a small waterproof box to the console with the mp3 player in-that way I can control volume via that.

<edit> Feck! Wireless jobbies are 8 quid in my local garage...what a good idea!

Does that make you Delboy and if so, who's Rodney?
According to Jon Brooks you sell waterproof speakers... what can you get?

Will that work with my Icom 421. And I've just got a hand held loud hailer.

I've velcroed my MP3 player to the dash. But its not waterproof in any way. If it rains it gets wrapped in a plastic bag and chucked on the console. Means I can still access the buttons. But not very well at 30 Knots

In fact I've found that I can do virtually bugger all at 30 Knots on my boat

Ah. Yes, he's correct. Mainly for VHF's, but can do them for marine audio. Price list is in the office, but I'll get back to you guys tomorrow!

(PS - I can't be Del Boy. All my gear is guaranteed, warranteed, and is direct from manufacturer/importer. I may be able to get you a good price, but the gear aint dodgy!)

I don't know, but I will check. Not sure the 421 has a loudhailer option - certainly the equivalent Standard Horizon has one, but on the Icoms you'd have to have an m505 or 606 if I recall correctly. Will confirm.
