    Things that make you go Hmmmmmm;

    If two 10" woofers do not increase SPL over a single 10", then why go with a 12" (less surface are then two 10") in place of a 10"?

    The impedance of each individual woofer never changes, it goes in as a 4 ohm and stays 4 ohm. The only thing that changes is the final impedance at the amp when 2 or more woofers are wired together to a single amp chnl....

    No, no you do not, based on the equipment list as is. Two (2) 4 ohm M610IB or M310IB wired in parallel = 2 ohm load to the amp.

    The M600/1 is rated at 600W rms with a 2 ohm load. So each woofer nets 300W.

    The HTX-1 is rated at 650W rms at a 2 ohm load, so each speaker nets...

    Yes, as mention, with the new wattage to the 770, I would suggest two 10" woofers. Thats actually about 40% more surface are v's a single 12".

    Two of your mono amps listed, will power two 4 ohm woofer, so im not sure I understand the adding of a 2nd woofer amp to drive a 2nd...

    • JL M600/1, 400W x1, $650
    • Wetsounds HTX-1, 330W/1, $650

    • Rockford Fosgate M2-500X1, 300w/1, $320
    As a huge Kicker fan, the bridged 400.2 would be my last choice here. Its got a fixed infrasonic filter, and its likely to low for my liking when paired with an IB...

  • If going with coaxials, you will need two pair for sure, and they need to be powered to their full potential. Many like the M800/8 bridged into 4 chnl mode. Me, id go with the Kicker KXMA1200/2. Easier to wire, easier to setup and tune and more wattage for a smaller investment....

    Im scratching my head here.

    Amps; Roswell - 1 class 4 models. Wet Sounds - 4 classes 14 total amps

    In-boats; Roswell - 2 series, 2 colors 3 sizes. Wet Sounds - 2 series, 4 sizes and up to 8 color/grill styles

    Woofers; Roswell - 2 series, 2 sizes, 2 colors. Wet...

    You will likely need an amp, as well, since it looks like the boat did not have tower speakers originally.

    A single pair of 8" coaxial dome tweeter with around 200 watts RMS to each, is a good starting point for a surf/party cove setup. You can go larger with something like a 9",...

    replied to Our stereo upgrade
    Running the audio's 12V B+ supply through the blueseas dual circuit plus switch is the correct patch, and NOT direct to the battery. However, this 1/0 supply needs some from of circuit protection within 8" of the source, I.E. the switch. I prefer a marine rate circuit breaker, but your existing...

    Very clean, nice job.

    Curious what the component is between the inline fuse holder and B+ distribution block. Is there additional circuit protection (fuse or breaker) and beginning of that large gauge 12V supply?...

    replied to Wetsounds 1/0 wire
    Dont see where the number of amps is being stated. Maybe the 1/0 is for the trunk line. The number of amplifiers is irrelevant, its actually the potential DC amperage draw and length that decide the cable gauge. As an example, the Wet Sounds SDX-2500 accepts up to 1/0 cable....
