Waterproof stereo & speakers for my rib

I have read the older posts on this subject, was interested if anyone had found any new items . I'm thinking of an old fashioned tape player and radio rather than CD as they can take the bouncing around better.

any info greatly received

thanks

Look at minidisc instaed of tape, if anything. No matter what you do they just won't skip!! You can even put em through the wash and they'll still work (the discs that is, not the player). Worth a look anyway.

I went for a set of non waterproof normal car speakers mounted in a dry (?) area.

They have plastic cones so they should take a bit of damp and if they do mess up I seem to remember I can go through 4 sets before they reach the cost of Waterproofs.

They have been in for a few months and no problems as yet.

For the stereo I went for a cheap radio and tape but with a line in input on the front for MP3 player and water proof cover.

Most of the time we just listen to the radio so not a problem if the tape mechanism can't take the knocks.

Cheers

Mike

Do you really need music whilst out on the peaceful sea? Or is it to compete with the jetskis!!

Got an Opti to listen to!! Don't need music when you've got that sweet sound! Honestly I can't see the point of music on a RIB, you won't be able to hear it most of the time anyway!!

Colin,
Did that only a few weeks ago. Got the speakers from ebay, here:

http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Soundlinx-O...enameZl2QQtZkm

£45 for 150W waterproof speakers and very good they are too.

Bought a second hand cheap and cheerfull car cd player of ebay for £40 and then bought a waterproof cover that it slots into for £20 from force 4 chandlers in Lymington(u can get them antwhere)

Took me about 2 hours to fit.

Hope this helps

Regards
Stuart
