GME do a "water resistant" cd/mp3 and am/fm stereo, it has an out casing with a cover over the front panel. It costs £225

Fusion do a water resistant cd player/stereo - costs £199

or you can buy a cover or housing, which goes over a standard stereo

Dave

Have you got a link to a site that sells the waterproof covers for a standard stereo.

I have long been looking to fitting a stereo to my rib.

I actually went out and bought the whole lot, got ready to fit it then opened the console. The whole inside of the console was damp with condensation . I then decided it was not a good idea after all.

Plus recently after borrowing a 7.9 ribtec with a Clarion water proof head unit I saw how after less that a year, the back of the unit had corroded to such an extent that it was no longer usable.

If the pukka components fail after less than a year then sorry walkman all the way!!!!!

Had one of these in the 'dash' of my microplus and it was pretty good-the case is sealed around the stereo with a rubber seal when the front is shut so no water can get in anywhere-even the rear.

Wouldn't bother with a cd/mp3 player-they simply aren't tough enough for marine abuse. I can't see salt crystals from salt air and the laser lens mixing too well.

Could you just install a decent amp and plug in a cheap 1gb mp3 player when you want sounds?
