Got a 2003 Wakesetter and looking for a good receiver. Just have the stock speakers in for now but looking for a radio that will be good for upgrades in the future. Suggestions ?? Thanks

What are some of your needs? Do you want an transom remote? Do you want bluetooth? Satellite radio? I have an Alpine CDE-HD149BT and love it because it gave me 5v pre outs, bluetooth, and satellite radio.

Hey. 1st off I am not at all technically savvy. Still use an old school cell phone. Basically what I want is a receiver I can plug in my ipod and be able to add a sub and tower speakers too later on. Not necessarily interested in a remote or blue tooth or satellite at present but who knows later. My receiver is under my arm rest. How do I know what is compatible ? Also, are there receivers that u actually upload your ipod into ? Thought I had seen that. Thanks

sounds like a WS420 is all you really need unless you want am/fm radio... if you run off ipod all the time just mount a WS420 under your dash and run everything off of that. no need to waste money on a full blow receiver... i just pulled my old sony receiver out of my 99 SSVLX and mounted a ws420 to run everything under the dash.

I do want FM radio also. A tuner that picks up well preferably. Thanks

I personally never feel that a 420 can fully replace a head unit. I would look at a nice kenwood Excelon. KDC-x898
