diy i-pod dock
just thinking about making one with class D amp build in. House the drivers on the single column with I-pod station on the top. Any ideas where I can get parts for dock?

Good question, I'm glad I asked it...
In the last reply I noted everything I had found up until the point where I maded my decision. Lots of neat stuff out there from cheap to expensive. I went cheap. I have the dock now but I have not messed with it yet (I swear I meant to a couple of times).
Re: diy i-pod dock
I worked for a local mobile electronics chain for several years. I made countless custom center console docks that appered factory.
Start with whatever iPod you plan to use, and connect whatever breakout cable you plan to use. (Many are available that can charge, provide control, and deliver line out.) Now cover the ipod with a single layer of Scotch 233+ green tape. Make a jig to hold the iPod in the location you want, and fill the void with Duramix epoxy. http://www.autobodysupply.net/category-s/79.htm
The 233+ has a high working temp and will not allow any of the Duramix solvents to bleed through. I never had an issue with anything getting through the tape and on to the iPod. When you're done, you can sand smooth, prime, and paint. It will look like one solild unit, and the iPod will sit very snug!
Sorry I do not have any pics on this computer... This was back when iPods were new tech. lol
