Re: Stereo Power Installation
You know I had a simple deep cycle battery, with a 3.5hp motor... I had a 14x14" solar panel hooked directly to a cigarette lighter outlet.. WE don't have power, I don't have an alternator...
My radio never killed my battery by having my $35 marine stereo (that took USB or SD cards), it was 40 watts, super short depth, with a remote. I think I got it at buy.com. I got about 12 stations after I connected to the masthead antenna. In retrospect I'd have done better with a regular fm radio antenna.... However, I got one of the XM roady receivers and piped it into the aux port on the radio... Crystal clear tunes, no issues.
