Question The BBQ project please help.

Hi, im new to the forum. Okay this is my latest project. I am building a BBQ Island and I am going to put a stereo system in it but am a novice when it comes to setting a home system. I intend to use a car stereo head unit due to its convenient size and mp3 playback capabilities. Along with the head unit I want to run Bose enviroment 251 speakers which are home speakers approximately 4 of them. what would be the best way to power this type of setup? any helpful suggestions would be appreciated.

A trip to West Marine might be useful,

A marine rated head unit might be a good idea for weather protection.

They would also likely have a myriad of solar charging supplies, Optima batteries and sutch. No reason to be married to the Bose either. There’s a few outdoor rated speakers that may give you as much sound for a little less money.

Assuming you don't mind running a AC extension cord out to your island or maybe a burried cable... Your head unit will likely be 50-watt x 4 channel capable for 4 speakers and decent volume. You just need to power it from some 12-volt source. Maybe check radio shack or an online source for a 12V, 5A AC->DC source. You can always build one from a 9-volt transformer. If you want more than 4 speakers, you'll have to amp it.
