On top of all the other work I need to complete, my stereo died a horrible death last season Ė being a normal car stereo in a so called waterproof housing, it just couldnít handle the elements.
Iím considering a Kenwood KMR-700U which is a marine grade unit. Iím not bothered about CDís, but like the idea of housing an IPod or MP3 player inside the unit for simplicity. Iíve also looked at the Fusion range but I understand you need a separate box to house the MP3 player, which is a waste of space. It was also suggested that I could just buy a standard non-marine grade car unit and just replace it each year if necessary Ė certainly a cheaper option for now but perhaps not in the long run. I just wondered if anyone had any ideas or thoughts on this vital subject.
