Default I need some stereo ideas

I am currently redoing my electronics lay out and was considering putting my CD player on my dash but after talking with a friend I am concerned with all the salt spray it will see along with being in the way. I want to mount it in the cabin but it is to deep for most of the walls. (CD player is 7inches walls are 4 to 5 deep) I really don't use the CD player that much but do use the stereo to hook my ipod into. What options other than a CD player do I have that will not have such a deep mounting depth.

Thanks!

You need the Jensen MSR2007. Search our site for "MSR2007" to see it. Its a black box unit, so the oversized remote goes on the dash and the rest of it mounts remotely behind the dash or wherever you want. It is a very nice unit.

That looks like what I was thinking about and the price seems right too!

Couple of questions:

What is the face dimensions? I need to know how much room it will take up.

It says:
Full iPod® controls (adapter cable sold separately)

Does this mean I will see all the ipod menus songs, playlists, etc. on this unit?

I have the JBL Black Box. Its a waterproof control panel on the console and the guts are in the console. No CD player but I do have Sirius and iPod hookup.

The face plate is surface mount, only a 3/4" hole for the plug end of the cable.



This pic is to show the size compared to a normal stereo.


The brains. I have an older model so the Sirius reciever is external. Now they come with the Sirius reciever built in.
