    Default Sick of it

    OK so after 6years of buying a new head unit every 6-8months I decided to dump some extra coin on a marine unit. Mistake lasted 2 weeks. I Have a 30mm ammo can that I love as my center counsil so getting a tuffy or other brand that keeps radio dry is out of the question. Besides wount spen the coin on it for less storage space. I did some poking around pirate and saw a vendor selling a waterproof pyle amp and some wakeboard speakers. I have no intereast in wakeboard speakers. Just the amp. It comes with a female headphone to rca jack and you can plug an ipod directly to the amp and just control volume on the ipod. Has anyone doen this set up. I do remember seeing something in jp about this set up a while back. If they make an xm handheld unit I could just plug and play I may upgrade that later. But it would have to be wireless and carry like walkman or an ipod(my 15year old never heard of a walkman...lol)

    Has anyone done this type of setup? Is it truly waterproof? It has plenty of wire so could be mounted anywhere. Does it push a pair of 6x9s pretty decent. For under $50 I am gonna give it a try. Please any advice or opinions welcome.

    A nice upgrade or option would be to pick up an xm walkman. Chicago radio sucks anyways.
