Boat music

Is there a such a beast that isn't car stereo sized?
Ideally I would like something that is mounted within the console with a very small waterproof control unit. MPŁ and radio would be ideal but MP3 would do.
I don't have room on the console front for a full sized stereo unit but could maybe squeeze something no larger than 4 x 4" or so.
Anybody seen anything like this or can recommend something along these lines?

Brilliant piece of kit .. sounds ace, has a self contained rechargeable battery that lasts well

Holds the iPod in the case too.. just done 3 weeks with it .. well impressed

I had found these but they seem a bit of a lash up. Is there such a thing as a custom made version that has a small remote control and ideally a radio?
In an ideal world I would be looking for something that mounts perm inside the console out of the way connected to two 4" speakers and have a small waterproof remote, even better if it can have a aerial and receive radio as well.
I actually bought a marine Sony cd tuner but ebayed it when I realised I had no space left to mount it in the console front

Have you got enough room in the console to fit speakers where they'll be pointing towards you? Doubt you'll hear them otherwise.


I wanted to go down the same route as the Force 4 kit before they started selling it.I bought all the bits separately only to find there was no way of fitting speakers where I'd hear them while moving unless they threw the compass miles off so it's all sat in the loft

You could add one of these to an ipod-or buy an mp3 player with tuner to plug into the force 4 kit.

Yes on medium ribs a bit of a problem .. the last RIB I had, had speakers mounted close to the floor but as you say still quite difficult to hear, and in rough water the CD jumped constantly

They are good but you cant dock your Ipod with anything else when the radio attachment is fitted
