If looking for a sound system central tuner/CD player, take not of a couple recent threads:
http://www.airforums.com/forum...b-23376-2.html
http://www.airforums.com/forum...kup-18239.html

Sounds like Sony intentionally makes it difficult to hook up an iPod -- and then the interface is quite kludgy.

We have given up on the built-in Sony and associated speaker system in our relatively new Airstream. We much prefer our own music on the various iPods we own (4 at the moment). So, we opted for the Apple Hi-Fi speaker system that can accommodate the iPods and runs on either AC or battery power. The sound out of this box has been reviewed very favorably by serious audiophiles and more than satisfies us. Also, the fact that it is portable means that we can put it in either the dining area or in the bedroom as well as outside. It may be a little large for some people. If so, there are many other choices for iPod speaker systems. Visit any Apple store or search on-line. I'm confident that you can find something that will satisfy and surprise (in the favorable sense).

Yes, if you cubes are also in the front area. The large box is really rahter small, check the dimensions in the link I gave you.
It can be laid on it's side without sacrifice in performance.

iPods and Sound?

i love this thread...

now, if i was to carry my iPod, all one of them, with say 40 days and nights of tunes...

i'd pack this, and i do, like all the time...

1 Yamaha Digital Sound Projector YSP-1
2 Yamaha Active Servo Processing Subwoofers YST-SW100
1 cable to attach iPod

now i know what ur all thinking, hey kev? we really wanna thump the bass AND have the mid / high end also...

dude,

this system will rock the PLANET for less than a thousand bucks (well maybe i can't remember exactly, but who cares), the girls just LOVE it, and well, it's very social... both kinds of music scream w/ this system IMHO but that's just me; i guess that's why i bought a Hemi... and went vintage...

i've attached a pic packing the back of my truck for my last rally in Dead Horse, Arizona. look close in front of the pit box for the corn thingie game, you can see the system on the right side, it's very compact...

oh, i just found a photo from boondocking in the nevada desert with my anna. in the lower right side of the photo, you can see the yamaha system in action.

There are several way to go. I think that for the most part, unless you are full timing and an audiophile, then there are a LOT of options. Since sound is somewhat subjective, it's hard to suggest what to go with.

IMPO, Bose, though good, does sound tinny to me.

mr. art dream streamin,

only someone who's spent time on the playa would know Black Rock City earth, when they saw it...

or perhaps more commonly refered to as "magic dust".

so anyway,

to stay on topic,

very large ART sound systems while boondocking in the nevada desert are fun and effective; although not Bose'.

back to my drum circle,

kevbo
