Default new project

okay, in the summer, i am practically always in the water, my family and i live on the beach in michigan. I love jetskiing, and wakeboarding, but sometimes i wish i had some music, so i was trying to figure out some different ways to integrate a sound system into a jetski. i want it to be able to be taken on and off, so i was looking at this:
iFloat
it is a waterproof boombox almsot, but i dont think it wud be loud enough, soo
i was looking at making a setup like this...

ipod in waterproof case-my own modded 3.5mm to speaker cable wire
- then to small waterproof speaker(s)

any other ideas would be great, basically just need a waterproof boombox thats really loud...

What kind of Jetski?

I think I have the perfect thing. And how much do you want to put into this?

Because I see no reason why you couldnt put that in the front of the Jetski with the fire extinguisher, and mount the speakers on the side

And even you could stick this baby in the back. on the back deck you know where you pull yourself up? Because im sure you could get up on the side. I know I can on mine, so it shouldnt be a problem for you.

Lol get this and set it there

You know hes right.. The roar of the motor is pretty loud.

Might wanna get a solo cd player, and something more like this
http://www.crutchfield.com/S-4uZd5sm...50&I=20655KS69
or
http://www.crutchfield.com/S-4uZd5sm...50&I=020CMCX71

you can turn the cd player all the way up and those speakers shouldnt distort. so check out a player like this...

yeah, i already have one of these

and was gonna mod it to be 3.5mm to speaker cable, i dunno though...

although, now that i think about it, the speakers shown earlier would have to be pretty loud, as they are made for boats, and boats have quite a roar to them also..
