Ipod Amp and Speakers setup

I am getting ready to install an Ipod/mp3 speaker and amp set up for my ranger. I have ordered a marine amp and 2 - 6" wakeboard tower speakers. This is the setup that I ordered:
MCM Custom Audio 60-10021 6 1/2" Marine Wakeboard Two-Way Speaker Pair - Black


Pyle PLMRMP1A 2-Channel Waterproof MP3/iPod Marine Power Amplifier


My plan is to hook up the head phone jack into the amp attachment and mount it in the hood. I am going to mount the speakers on the back of the roll cage. Anyone have any suggestions?

I am going to install the head phone jack in the glove box so that my phone doesnt get wet, It also has a volume knob that i am going to install on the dash. The Amp will be installed so that the radio wont be able to run unles the key is on. I plan on running the speaker wires through the roll cage. I will post pictures once I get everything installed. Like i said before and suggestions are grealty appreciated.

Sounds good, looking forward to seeing the photos!

Make sure you use a fuse on the + power line to the amp so it doesn't get toasted if you have a power surge.

Thanks for the advice, the amp came with one. Any advice on hiding the speaker wires?

Well, I ran some wires to the back of my Ranger for lights. I ran them under the floor, above the skid plate - but when I ran a wire up the back for a cargo light, I just zip-tied it to the roll bar and it looks fine.

Did the same on the left front when I ran a wire up to a dome light; doesn't look bad at all.

I saw a small amp on eBay for cheap - like 5 bucks. But no case, you'd have to make that yourself... it's just a circuit board with knob (on/off and volume), a plug for stereo input, and places to attach power & speaker wires. Very tempting, but I think I'll wait until deer season's over.
