Agreed. Unless you get some wakeboard speakers you ain't going to hear much on the move. I tend to use my system when I'm fishing or lazing about.

These seem a good price.

Would be nice to try them out first though. They are pretty large as well. Like small paper bins.

Thanks for all the inputs. I think I know have plan. I piece of kit specifically for boats for around 200 bucks. That does not include the iPod of course and of course the good lady wants a 80gig Classic.

These guys have a good selection:http://www.rocktheboataudio.com/

Double the power gives you a 3dB increase. Listening to a 3dB increase is a bit like raising your voice a little so double the power gives you feck all increase in volume.

Me, I'd use a good cd player and a pair of phones.

Why not buy a head unit that can play MP3s? That way, you can burn hundreds of tracks onto one CD that can be played on board.

No need for an iPod....

Are there any Marine Head units on the market that offer solid state MP3 Via memory cards and Radio without the CD?

This is the bit of kit I use. It has MP3 input. I have an extension outlet hard wired in to the dash and I just plug in a very old MP3 player. The MP3 player is velcroed to the dash.

Looks like its gone up over a hundred quid in a year.

Above is a link to the lead.

More details below.

They are available for cars. Have a usb port on the front and you load up a ,say 2 gig, thumbdrive with MP3 files and plug it in. Control the play with the head unit controls. 2 gig of MP3 files is about 700 tunes.
http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...DC-MP435U.html

Also made by Clarion, and JVC. all about $160.00

Stll looking for a marine one.
