What do people think of this kit? Does anyone have one? Im currently trying to find a nice little system for my boat. I don't want to spend a fortune, but I don't want something that isnt going to work.....

Looks a very good buy.

Just don't expect to hear much music when your hammering the boat and you won't be disapointed. Unless you stick an amp on it and some big speakers that is.

They also do one with 4x80watt speakers. Presumably that would be better....

I think you need 200 watts per speaker to be realistic. That needs an amp.

Update: finally fitted the kit above today. Very pleased with the sound quality and indeed the overall feel of the gear. Something it doesnt say in the ebay ad is that is has phono inputs on the back for an MP3 player or whatever. So yes, highly recommend this stuff!

Was there an IP rating for water resistance on the box? Couldn't see one in the listing, would be interesting to know.

No but it does say fully waterproof and the guarantee does seem to back this up. Hopefully they will stand by this should the need arise....

I've had one fitted to my boat for over 9 months now, very pleased with it, the only thing I will say, if it's got the detachable front controls, make sure you cover the back metal plate with something, mine has gone a tad rusty over the period and I need to give it a good clean, saying that, it still works absolutely fine.
