    DIY Stereo rxtx

    Thought the $1K stereo was a bit high so I installed my own - $100. am/fm,blue tooth, aux, usb, waterproof

    Works great as I usually just want the radio..

    The market is saturated with bluetooth powered speakers, which the vast majority don't have AM/FM radio - at least not a decent and intuitive implementation of it. So I did something very similar...
    I bought a similar round radio head unit (can't think of the brand at the moment) and installed it inside my Yama's glove-box. Like you, I enjoy old-school radio over a playlist. The system still has bluetooth, aka the latest bells-n-whistles, and it's more intuitive like my car/truck radio system, in that its hardwired to the ski's power/battery.
    The only caveats here was routing the external antenna discretely. Also, decent speakers were a challenge.
    Speaking of ... which speakers are on your system? How's the quality?

    Speakers seem fine - haven't tested on water yet.

    My head unit works without an antennae - but I'm going to add one anyway for more channels - it will it inside the main storage along the side.

    I wish someone sold just pods like SD makes. Then we could put whatever speaker and remote/amp setup in that we want. I was looking for them when I bought my t-x but never found any

    The OEm speaker pods stick out too far in my mind. I'm going to recess my speakers further into the plastic block off panels - keep them out of harms way. still looking for some good waterproof 4" round ones.
