Unit in trunk, need to remote control...

Needing more thoughts than title says. I have one of these blue tooth units in the trunk of my '61 Chevy I built. Eliminates radio cutout in dash.

At this point I have no amp, or any mehod for manual controls. Phone app is played to it through blue tooth.

The unit has plenty of volume for my interests. Here's what I want to improve:
  • Would like to have a way to control volume with a knob (lower priority)
  • Would like to be able to fade/balance. Right now it is what it is, and I can't even hear my front speakers (High priority)
  • Might not mind having some more bass (low priority)

Was thinking maybe I could have some type of remote settings device that would use a knob mounted under dash, or in console.

I'm presuming I will need an amplifier in order to have a way to adjust bal/fade. No way to do that from that unit.

Controlling fade and balance from the phone would be OK. The knobs thing may be a hassle.

I have 2 of these Kicker speakers in the back. Don't recall the fronts, but they are 5" rounds in the kick panel.

Sorry for rambling.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Maybe this would do what I need.

Or maybe this would be even better.
