Have tried a number of portable speaker setups with my ipod in the car -- just threw em in the passenger side to try them. Fidelity on most are pretty decent but simply couldn't get the volume high enough to compete with the pipes and wind without a lot of distortion.
So was messing around with my guitar and portable Cube (Roland) amp the other day and thought what the heck, let's see what it sounds like with the ipod going through the actual amp section instead of the aux-in play along input.
I am still going to put in a substantial permanent system, but for just cruising around and having something that can compete (somewhat) with the pipes and wind, not too bad for the 80 bucks or so it cost on sale from the local Guitar Center.
