Stereo system- finding the right combo

6m rib- Clarion headunit and then a pair of two-way clarion waterproof speakers. Is that going to be enough?. I'm new to this, so any advice much appreciated.

Thanks.

Thats what I have and it is adequate. We mainly use it at low speed , it does need to be turned up loud to be heard over the wind noise.

What I want to add is the ipod attachment so that it acts like a cd changer. I believe that one is available so that you can plug the lead & ipod in the back of the unit this then powers the ipod and the head unit displays the tracks and can control the ipod. Leaving your ipod nice and dry(ish) in the console. (http://www.clarionworld.co.uk/stock/ea1251e.asp)

Also be aware that when placing the speakers the whole console acts like a bass bin!

Do you really need the Ipod attachment? Most head units have a line in - you may be able to just wire it into a suitable jackplug. I did this a few years ago on my VDO car stereo and it works fine with my Ipaq.

No not necessarily, but with line in you would have no control over the ipod but I guess you could just put in shuffle mode and leave it, saving nearly 70
