I reckon the speakers are easy, they can go here........
I have been searching the net and would prefer something compact integrated, and hopefully with a radio.
My motor is quiet enough that I reckon even at full chat I will be able to hear OK but ist really for when stopped sunbathing.......

Oh yeah you'll hear something but it wont be much of the music you are playing In order of appearance it will be

1 .. Air rushing past your ears
2 .. Water splashing off your hull
3 .. your engine .. no matter how quiet it is
4 .. your music

I've just bought one of these for mine

Managed to squeeze a pair of 3" speakers on the dash and a pair of 6" mid range nearer the floor.

Not fitted yet so cant comment on sound quality

Even with a bit of careful soldering?

I've got a mini radio transmitter I plug into my mp3 player when I'm at work so I can tune the truck radio into it. Don't bother with them if you were thinking about it. They eat batteries and the transmission quality is only good enough when the transmitter is less than 2 feet from the tuner.

I guess I am just feeling spoiled at the moment, the quietness of the 4 stroke and the shelter of that large wide and high console.
Bit different to the old one seat jockey with the two smoke motor that you had to shout into someones ear to be heard when at full chat.
In comparison to that this boat feel positively luxurious.......

Well I was referring to my last 4 stroke with a large console

That looks the biz but looks like you still need a seperate ipod and radio module, that with these built in is what I am lookimg for.

We........lll, the thought of acting the stereotypical non yachtie (in their minds) for a laugh did cross my mind,
Anchor beside some yachts and crank up the stereo and wave around a few bottles of wine sort of thing, you know how we are viewed in some quarters.........

The idea is that as the main unit and ipod are seperate to the controller, they can be mounted anywhere out the way, saving room on the dash. I'm going to fit an ipod permanently in an Index box as the ipod is linked via the usb so you get full ipod control on the dash and it recharges itself
