Ok so my new boat has the base stereo package for the VTX, which is 4 speakers, a sony head unit, and no amp or sub. <BR> <BR>I'm not a stereo junky, and don't want to drop a grand on these two components, but do want something to give my speakers a little more drive and a sub to round them out. Now later when I put pro60s in I will be looking for a higher end amp for them, but right now I just want a little more power to enjoy my music without breaking the bank anymore than I already did buying the boat.

This seems like it would be a good amp to run 75 watts to each of the 4 interior speakers and then 300 watts to a sub. <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_13242_Pioneer+Premier+PRS-D4200F.html" target="_blank">http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_13242_Pioneer+Premier+PRS-D4200F.html</a> <BR> <BR>I have also heard good things about the Image Dynamics Id subs. Here is one for pretty cheap. <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.woofersetc.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=product.display&amp;product_i d=4992" target="_blank">http://www.woofersetc.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=product.display&amp;product_i d=4992</a>

400 to 600 watt 4 channel amp and a 10 in sub and box would be around $600. <BR> <BR>Amps I recommend in the lower cost arena (Kicker, Crossfire, HiFonics) <BR>Subs (Kicker C10, or Polk db10) <BR> <BR>All can be found on ebay very cheap.

If you were local, i've got a good JL 10w3 with MTX mono block amp, and box, that i'd let go in the $150 range. Add wires and install, and you'd be in business. <BR> <BR>I'm currently running 2 10w3's in my Response LXI and am happy with it for a budget system

$150 sounds good, I'm wanting to stay under $500 if possible. Got quoted $700 for rockford amp and sub from malibu

How about either of these Hifonics amps for $170 and the other 140. They would do 85 watts to each interior speaker and 340 to a sub. <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_11204_Hifonics+TXi+6408.html" target="_blank">http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_11204_Hifonics+TXi+6408.html</a> <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_11204_Hifonics+TXi+6408.html" target="_blank">http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_11204_Hifonics+TXi+6408.html</a> <BR> <BR>Here is a kicker CVR 10" dual 2 ohm VC sub for $80. That gets you an amp to run the 4 speakers and sub plus the actual sub for under $250. I bet it would sound just fine for most people. <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_8360_Kicker+07CVR102.html" target="_blank">http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_8360_Kicker+07CVR102.html</a>

some good advice here, but i would add maybe just hang in there with what you've got until you can afford what you want and do it right the first time. i wasted quite a few bucks replacing amps and speakers in my last two boats until i was happy. that said, i know what it's like not wanting to wait. <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0>

Dont buy Kicker from cheap @$$ internet sellers, they are not new and dont have factory warranty. <BR> <BR>I would highly recommend the Kicker MX700.5 5chnl amp and the Comp VR 10" DVC 4 Ohm sub. The mx700.5 will deliver 70 watts to each of your 4 in-boat speakers and 420 watts to the sub.

I second the Kicker products. <BR> <BR>And FYI Sonicelectronix.com is an authorized internet dealer for Kicker. At least that is what it says on Kickers Website

I've bought lots of stuff from Sonicelectronix.com over the past 5 years, and it's always been brand new stuff. Their customer service isn't always great, their shipping cost is a bit on the high side, but their prices are always great.

cjh1669 11-18-2009 12:23 PM

I think I';m going to look into kicker amps, and if I can get them reasonable enough I may even buy a wetsounds sub.
