Mine is very loud and it was a very easy install I already had the overhead radio mount so I just mounted the amp inside of that and made a faceplate with the controls in it. It stays nice and dry and still get to use my mount that I paid 95 bucks for. You can use any kind if MP3 player with it I can even hook up my laptop and play of my playlist. I will try to post a couple pics tomorrow.
I would like to know about the wiring, what is used between the ipod and the amp? also can the Rex charging system handle powering the amp. I like to build my own stuff and I love my tunes, sounds like a sweet project to play with.
Love the looks of this setup but if I had it where I'm at it would only take about 30 minutes and it would be layin on the ground or up in a tree from a tree limb strike. The roofs on the LE's around here have a very short life span..lol
