No speakers in our van.. as a temporary measure i'd got one of those cheapie little bluetooth speaker that can also be useful when camping / around the campfire etc It was about £20 quid and worked ok but tinny sound and not enough volume/quality to be heard properly whilst driving. In the house we had an old BOSE sound dock - you know the type where the old fashioned ipod docks in the front? That was on it's last legs so we chucked that on ebay (80 quid - result) plus sold the old ipod and a few other bits and bobs and put the money towards a new bose. This arrived yesterday and i have to say i'm totally blown away with it. Sound performance is absolutely epic - loud, crisp, clear, great bass (you really don't believe how much bass you can get from something so small). It's primarily going to get used in the house but with a 14 hr charge it will also come with us when we travel in the van. You play your "choonz" via bluetooth off your phone/apple whatsit or you can plug in an aux too. Cost a little over 200 quid which isn't that much these days and certainly no more than you'd pay for decent speakers and a head unit if you were fitting directly into the van. Saves cutting your dash/door cards, works great in the house, can be moved between rooms etc. or loud enough to really annoy your neighbours when camping. If you don't have any ICE in your van and you don't want the fitting hassle or you want to avoid cutting stuff then this is a great solution.
