Pimp my RIB?

Right, after quite some time pussy footing around, my RIB is getting a stereo.

I like my music and boats so my logic is why the hell not combine the both!!

I've got my stuff from Marine AV and it should be arriving tomorrow.

The head unit is an Aquatic, fully waterproof jobby which is going into a 300w Infinity Amp and on to some Infinity 6x9s.

Has anyone got any advice? I'm gonna try cutting the console with a jigsaw for the speakers, not sure about what to do with the head unit. I may mount it into the side of the console, not on the main steering wheel face. Has anyone else tried this?

What about mounting horisontally under the wheel?

What about in the back of the main console seat?

Your thoughts would be appreciated.

Chris

Do you have a web address? I am thinking about adding similar things to my boat

Also, when fitting take lots of pictures - I am aiming to setup www.pimpmyrib.co.uk for people to put pictures up of additions they make to there rib, with an easy blog type interface

Cheers

Ben

Benc, your boat is an industrial brown site. Any developments, like adding a stereo (even one that uses cartridges - remember those - no you won't - you're too young) will qualifyfor a government brown site development grant

The web address is HERE

They were very helpful and gave me some decent advice on what was most suitable for my boat.

Nobody got any ideas on where to mount my head unit?
