Default ipod to boat speakers ???

I have some west marine speakers in my electronics box. I have a am/fm/cd player mounted in there, but doesn't work so I took it out. What is the easiest way to get an ipod to play though those speakers??

Buy another stereo with a 3mm connection on the face and connect your ipod to it.

Step 1. Call Jim at BOE (google, BOE Marine)
Step 2. Ask for THT pricing on a Fusion IP600
Step 3. Read him CC number for payment
Step 4. Install stereo
Step 5. Create ultimate boating playlist on your ipod.
Step 6. Open beer, enjoy ultimate boating play list while relaxing on your boat, knowing you got a great deal on the best stereo unit currently on the market, all the while supporting another THT.com member.

Check out these two. The Kenwood and the Fusion, both hold the iPod securely inside of them also keeping the iPod safe from the elements. Not only is this an easy way but its also the best way! Use your THT discount and they are a pretty sweet deal too! Just enter THTDISCOUNT in the coupon box at checkout!

The Sony CDX-H910UI marine CD receiver I installed onto my boat has a USB connection that permits direct control of our daughter's iPhone. This is an outstanding receiver! It is very well-made w/ terrific features. This receiver would suit your requirements.

My system also has the Sony RM-X60M wired remote to put a large control w/ a decent-sized display right in the middle of the cockpit.

I couldn't be happier w/ this system. I've got it wired into both televisions, satellite radio, disc changer, wireless Internet Blu-ray player, two iPhone connections (Salon and Cockpit) and headphone connection for late night silent TV play. I've also got more than 2,500W, so no problem hearing me coming...

Much of this system was purchased from Crutchfield. They provide outstanding service and are highly recommended!

When there are sooo many choices, I'd just go with the one with the most buttons and knobs, gotta be better, right?
