I am looking at purchasing an amp to drive the speakers on our tower; I have yet to purchase speakers or amp. <BR> <BR>The boat already has a 600-watt mono bazooka amp that feeds the bazooka sub. The clarion head unit feeds six kicker speakers. <BR> <BR>The tower speakers I am thinking about are the 8" Bazooka tubies (so it will all match)-(and be cost effective) <BR> <BR> <BR><a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/BAZOOKA-MT8002W-MARINE-8-WAKEBOARD-SPEAKER-TOWERS-NEW_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ26444QQitemZ4632880 904QQrdZ1QQsspagenameZWDVW" target="_blank">http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/BAZOOKA-MT8002W-MARINE-8-WAKEBOARD-SPEAKER-TOWERS-NEW_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ26444QQitemZ4632880 904QQrdZ1QQsspagenameZWDVW</a> <BR> <BR> <BR>The two amps I am looking at are on E-bay <BR> <BR><a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-1000W-4-Ch-WATERPROOF-MARINE-BOAT-AMP-PLMRA420_W0QQitemZ9715444699QQcategoryZ18796QQssPa geNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem" target="_blank">http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-1000W-4-Ch-WATERPROOF-MARINE-BOAT-AMP-PLMRA420_W0QQitemZ9715444699QQcategoryZ18796QQssPa geNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem</a> <BR> <BR> <BR><a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/BAZOOKA-MA460-4-3-2-CHANNEL-MARINE-BOAT-AMPLIFIER-AMP_W0QQitemZ9712503022QQcategoryZ4950QQssPageName ZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem" target="_blank">http://cgi.ebay.com/BAZOOKA-MA460-4-3-2-CHANNEL-MARINE-BOAT-AMPLIFIER-AMP_W0QQitemZ9712503022QQcategoryZ4950QQssPageName ZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem</a> <BR> <BR> <BR>The Bazooka Amp will match but I don't know if it will drive the tower speakers effectively? <BR> <BR> <BR>Thanks in advance. <BR> <BR>David <BR> <BR>(Message edited by Toolman on April 20, 2006)

the pyle amp is junk...those numbers are more than likely max output not RMS. The bazooka tubbies sound decent for what they are. take a closer look at the auction...no clamps are provided for mounting. I've had no exp with the bazzoka amps. Don't worry so much about matching brand with brand. you speakers will not get mad at you<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/proud.gif" border=0>

I just bought a set of those tubbies but havent hooked them up yet, they look good quality wise though. <BR>Im gonna use this amp for them. <BR><a href="http://www.millionbuy.com/prfap600.html" target="_blank">http://www.millionbuy.com/prfap600.html</a> <BR> <BR>Or this would be a good amp for the tower speakers <BR><a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/Kicker-KX350-2-Amp-MSRP-369-2-channel-24-hr-ship_W0QQitemZ9713074263QQcategoryZ48598QQrdZ1QQcm dZViewItem" target="_blank">http://cgi.ebay.com/Kicker-KX350-2-Amp-MSRP-369-2-channel-24-hr-ship_W0QQitemZ9713074263QQcategoryZ48598QQrdZ1QQcm dZViewItem</a> <BR> <BR>And a 4 channel amp <BR><a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/KICKER-KX350-4-CAR-AUDIO-4-CH-AMP-AMPLIFIER-350-WATTS_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ38638QQitemZ80564 86147QQrdZ1" target="_blank">http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/KICKER-KX350-4-CAR-AUDIO-4-CH-AMP-AMPLIFIER-350-WATTS_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ38638QQitemZ80564 86147QQrdZ1</a> <BR> <BR>Like Adam said those pyle amps are just that, a pile. Youd be better off with something that will put out what its rated at and that if you need to you can run at 2 ohms. You might even look at the Hifonics stuff on ebay, ive heard good things about them for the price as well.

---DO NOT GET THE PYLE AMP--- <BR> <BR>Pure junk.. <BR> <BR>The best amp for the money I'm telling you is a Clarion APX480M 4 channel.. <BR> <BR><a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/NEW-CLARION-APX480M-4-CHANNEL-MARINE-BOAT-AMPLIFIER-AMP_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ38638QQitemZ8058442 840QQrdZ1QQsspagenameZWDVW" target="_blank">http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/NEW-CLARION-APX480M-4-CHANNEL-MARINE-BOAT-AMPLIFIER-AMP_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ38638QQitemZ8058442 840QQrdZ1QQsspagenameZWDVW</a> <BR> <BR>I got mine for $140 with a scratch on it, and have it powering 4 Audio Formz 6x9 Infinity's in parallel on two channels, and a set of 7" Clarion coax's and a set of 6.5" Clarion seperates in front parallel with NO PROBLEM.. she thumps hard and is WAY loud and clear at 70' and I have never even come close to turning it all the way up.. <BR> <BR>That one amp does it all.. crystal clear.. pure quality <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0> <BR> <BR>HIGHLY recommend the Audio Formz as well.. super sexy swingin' sounds and way underpriced at $330 a pair with clamps included.. beautiful beautiful attention grabbing things.. I get questioned about em and stares everytime I take em out.. the best part is when the guy in the MC X2 drives by and goes damn.. I need some of those.. <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/wink.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>http://www.audioformz.com/wakeboard.asp?img=infinity692m-back.jpg <BR> <BR>(Message edited by junglesmacks on April 20, 2006) <BR> <BR>(Message edited by junglesmacks on April 20, 2006)
