Default RE: Wiring VHF into Stereo

When I bought my boat used it had 4 stereo speakers built into the gunnels, 2 forward of the console, 2 aft. I re-wired it so that the rear speaker closest to the helm is now my VHF speaker, driven by an ICOM M45. Plenty of power and no additional speaker taking up space. I can have both the stereo on and the VHF, I can also adjust the stereo to the forward speakers while I have my VHF on at the helm. I don't have stereo aft of the console, but hey!, it's a fishing boat!
