Which channel amp?

Starting from scratch. Need a completely new system for a prostar 205v. Looking at 6 speakers (2 bow, 2mid, and 2 aft) and one sub under driver kick panel. What is everyoneís recommendation on amp to power? 5 or 6 channel? Upon a brief search of stereo equipment I was thinking about going with fusion head unit, speakers and sub. Iím just looking for something passable and not a top notch comp grade system. Just something to get some tunes to the family. Any recommendations?

Yes, a 5, 6 or 8 chnl will do just fine. Id choose the woofer and its impedance, then go from there.

Whats your budget for this setup, and any reason you are not listing tower speakers?

Get some wet sound rev 10s on that tower. Best money you can spend on a wake boat

Thanks MLA. Why not a 4 channel? Typically not powerful enough to drive 7 speakers?

Budget is not fixed. No tower so no tower speakers.

With a 4 chnl amp, a subwoofer would consume half the amp. This leaves 2 chnls for 6 speakers, Regardless of wattage, there is no real good way to wire three speakers to a single chnl.

With a 5,6, or 8 chnl amp, you have more then enough channels to properly wire everything up.
