Here is what I have in mind:
Mount a 2 channel marine amp under the front cowl and run 2 water proof speakers mounted under the roof, not sure where yet. Probably going to use wake board speakers for this.
The main amp power wire should run straight to the battery, I suggest you used heavy marine 8 gauge wire – you want to use FUSED, (30A) big gauge wire to run from the amp to the batt. The same size for the negative wire too….The green “turn on” 12V small wire should go to a switch on the dash. I’m going to mount a 12V battery somewhere to run this.
Apple sells a nice cable that puts a very small hole in your dash for the connection to the ipod. It’s called the “iPod AV” cable and made for the video ipod – you can just hook up the L+R audio jacks, forget the video part to the amp and it’ll work fine.
I found this info on a boating forum, yep I know I have to many toys
If I decide to do it on the cheep I'm going to look for this: Poly Planar has a small 2 ch amp, all the wires and a pair of not so hot speakers. It’s called the “MP3-KITA”

I LOVE Pandora. I use the "Tunein" app on my I-phone for live progamming. Mostly for listening to ball games or sports talk from my local station when I'm on the road.

I have a Blaupunkt AM/FM/CD mounted in an overhead console in my Carryall. Cheap-o rubber ducky antenna from Autozone stuck thru the roof.

Works just fine in FM and CD, with the exception of dropping out for 2 sec's every time I floor it, until the voltage stabilizes it. (Crappy Sams Club batteries). No issues with static or interference, at least.

Never tried AM. Is that still around?

I just use my Dewalt jobsite radio and put it on the passenger seat next to me. Not real fancy but it does the job.

I have mine attached directly to a separate 12V battery and have no issues with static or anything else. Mine is on a 2001 DS, for what its worth....

What amp and speakers did you use? Any pictures of how you mounted them? I think I'm going to pull the trigger on this soon. I need some tunes.
