Have you thought about using an Apple Airport Express and sending audio from the Coach's phone via Airplay?

What about a perforated steel door? It would probably provide better reception than solid steel.

No. Bluetooth enabled CD player is in the specs.

Do they also spec the desired performance of the Bluetooth in that player?   It sounds like what they want and what they've spec'd are two different things.  Go with the spec and change order it later.

I wouldn't put too much faith in the technical abilities of anybody who would "tuck the rack beside the gym bleachers" then be concerned about it being damaged to begin with.

I occasionally supply a Bluetooth-enabled CD player (Tascam CD-200BT) in a rack.
I've always tried to spec a plexiglas door to allow good reception at the front of the unit.

But now a school says they want solid steel door on the new Gymnasium rack because flying basketballs might break the Plexiglas. (Not worried about athletes hitting the rack, as it's tucked in beside the bleachers.)

Do you think the Tascam would receive the Bluetooth signal from Coach's iPhone if the rack is closed with steel door? Coach could be anywhere about the Gym, which is sized for a single basketball court.

I noticed that Denon DN-300Z CD/BT/AM/FM deck has a remote Bluetooth antenna. Never played with that model.

The 300Z is great.
The antenna is removable, but not 'remote' by default, however it is removable so you'd have to find an extension cable for it.
That should take care of your problem though
