I'm trying to find information about low power radios for the boat. A lot of the ones I see try to brag about their wattages, but to be honest I just need to hear the music. I'm not trying to impress a bunch of chicken headed hoochies at spring break.
To be honest, I don't care if it plays CDs. I'd rather satellite radio.
Most car decks don't draw much amperage. Apparently they don't draw near the advertised 50 watts per channel that is standard spec. Check out the Fusion RA-200 if you're looking for a digital solution suitable for AM/FM/VHF/iPod/Sirius/AUX (no CD).
Ohhh that Fusion RA-200 is *NICE*. Thank you for that!
I've used the Fusion Audio units on my boat, and they work great. Had one on the last boat, and when I bought our current boat, the first upgrade I did was to take out the Sony CD player and install a Fusion MS-IP600G in its place. I use a iPod 80gig Classic, and even with around 2000 songs on it now, it is only about 10% full. I use the unit all the time, and the drain on the batteries is small.
