Yeah, I knew about those options but they are pricey. The first link (Vintage Auto Radio) charges $395+ for the conversion of 60-70s radios. That's steep. I built an amplifier for way less than that. Plus they claim 180W of power. Hard to believe without huge heatsink and running on tiny gauge 12V wire. My 4x75W amplifier is five times the size of my radio and needs at least 8AWG wire that runs directly to the battery.
Anyway, thanks for the links. Good for somebody that may have similar question. Once I finish my setup (still need to mount the IR repeater) I will post pictures.
