radios AGAIN!

I know this has must have been covered 1000 times before.... but, as I just cant be bothered to trawl thru the archives I'll ask it again....

I want to install an FM radio/CD player on the RIB and have been guided towards this from marineAV
http://www.marine-audio.com/images/largeimage425.jpg

but I dont think it's very pretty...

does anyone have any knowledge of this/these from Boss?

I don't want to install amps, subs pre-amps or any other add-ons, just a radio and 2 speakers!

thanks in advance,
Milo

Hi, that looks good.

Does it have an input to plug in an MP3 player?

Also, how do the CDs load?

It plays mp3's off cd's or it has an input in the back. The black front drops down to reveal the cd loading mech.

Thanks Tony

It would be a useful upgrade for my existing MP3 only set up.

Hi

I have a Boss unit with a cd built in added a 1000w amp and 300 w speakers

It's nearly a year old and works fine blows the opti away, but I don't use it, I feel a total t--t with it on(bit like a hot hatch with a base box going down the high street ) and have found that driving around I don't really use it there's to much happening and when I'm fishing I love the sound of nothing apart from the wife passing a low alcohol beer

When I sort out what to cover the cut outs with its gone

James

no worries, not going to be out that much over the winter myself!

if you get it sorted and want to sell the gear, give me a shout, I might still be interested...

Hi Bedajim

you said 'I love the sound of nothing apart from the wife passing a low alcohol beer'

I can read this two ways... which did you mean
