Okay ya'll. I just aquired a boat with an old school kenwood tape deck and 3.5" speakers that are blown! Let me tell you what I currently have and you guys recommend what I need to finish this thing off. Keep in mind my budget is cheap here (I can't be spending more on sound than I did on the boat ). Most of this stuff is free hand me downs Deck: Pioneer DEH-P6600 Amp: RF 350.1 (I think). I know that it is a 350 watt amp and is about 3-4 years old. Sub: 12" Alpine S w/ a rather large box that I may or may not reuse. ------------- I need some marine speakers. I was thinking 4-6.5" that I can mount in the existing areas where I am pulling the older speakers (I will just cut larger holes). I will just run these from the CD deck's amp and not a seperate one. Thoughts, ideas, brands, on marine speakers? Also, how should I go about getting an Ipod input on this deck? From what I can tell it has some 'special' Pioneer plug in the back that can be used for AUX inputs. I would also like to keep the install looking clean w/o wires coming from the back of the deck for the Ipod adapter. Are there are faceplates I could put in next to the cd deck that would keep it looking clean? cliffs: read it ;-) THANKS IN ADVANCE OT. LET ME KNOW YOUR MARINE AUDIO KNOWLEDGE!
