Default Marine stereo gurus, advise needed!

I am going to put a cd head unit and speakers in my Seadoo jetboat so I am looking for the most durable shockproof and waterproof cd headunit available.

Any suggestions?

Yella is right don't bother with a cd headunit, solidstate mp3 player sports type
you might need a preamp to boost it enough for your larger amps get the one with the EQ built in they make them with 512meg and 1 gig now hold a ton of songs plus you can use it in the car

Clarion makes a head unit that you can dump water on. It has a snap closed front cover with a rubber seal. It is a little larger then a stock size unit but you can check it out and see if it will work for ya.

thanks guys, I am trying to stick with a simple "head and 4- 6.5"s

Jon, I have considered the Clarion you are talking about, prob is their is just no good place to mount it

I guess its just time to get out the resin and the grill cloth and make a pod
