Installed Outdoor System

My parents are building a deck/patio and would like a permanently installed sound system to accompany it. I've decided on a pair of JBL Control 30s mounted to the house powered by a Crown XLS 402 to keep the budget reasonable.

They do not want a CD player and only want an iPod hookup. I could use a Whirlwind PCDI to balance the iPod output outside on the patio and send the dual XLRs to the amp inside the house but then I dont have volume control other than on the iPod itself.

My other option is to use some sort of line mixer but I really don't need all the channels and additional cost. Is there any device with just RCA ins, XLR outs, and a volume knob?

I've been thinking about the Mackie VLZ-402 but something in a box form (not necessarily 19" rackmount) that I could mount would be much nicer for an installed system.
