    Weatherproof cabinet for stereo receiver

    Rather than running wires from inside the house to the pool area, I want to keep a stereo receiver outside 24/7 (will bring it in over the winter). I plan to locate the cabinet under a pergola. So, it will get rained on. I've found a couple of references to using a Rubbermaid/Suncast plastic resin cabinet, but I have my doubts about how well they would protect the receiver, and I'm not crazy about their appearance.

    Before I buy a bunch of lumber and build one (which will be quite a project since my carpentry skills are not the greatest ) I wanted to find out if anyone on the forum has or knows of a cabinet that would meet my needs.

    Thanks.

    I just got a cheap-ish nightstand/hutch/wine holder thing and had the upholstery guy make a waterproof cover for it. Works like a champ and keeps the sun/dirt off of it too when not in use.

    We went with a 12 volt spa head unit (with bluetooth).

    Here it is in the cabinet. We keep the cabinet covered with a weatherproof small grill cover.

    And it powers four of these..

    What size power supply did you go with to power it up? Is the volumn sufficient enough? I like the idea> Thanks for sharing
