Default using an ipad for click track

Sooo... I'm using my ipad to run a click track. Works well at rehearsal but in a live situation, its not loud enough. I can't seem to find anything to boost the volume level (mixer, preamp, d.I. box, etc.) Anybody know what I need and how much?

Maybe a headphone amp

How, precisely, are you listening to the click? An iPhone is a music player with headphone outs and generally doesn't need a headphone amp. And with proper head/earphones, you should be relying on their isolation from the band, not overpowering it with volume.

I used a small 4-track mixer to boost the signal from the metronome app on my iPod Touch, and that easily had enough power to blow my eardrums if I turned it up past halfway. If that's still not loud enough for you, I would look at what else might be causing your problem. For example, your earphones/earbuds might not block out enough noise.
