So 400 watts (4X100) is 100 watts per each of four speakers. 300 watts (4X75) is 37.5 watts per each of six speakers once you balance the output levels of all speakers. That's a major power drop off....

Reality? No and No.

The Kicker and Memphis are the most balanced sounding 6.5" HLCDs. Other than that, the better tower HLCD products, such as Wetsounds and HollowPoint, have discontinued their...

For starters, a single 4-gauge is required for both individual amplifiers.
Hopefully the 900/5 is not driving more than a total of four in-boat coaxials.
If you think that the voltage is dropping...

Yes, it is a true HLCD. It has a smaller tweeter diaphragm and smaller compression chamber than some others but it is an HLCD and frankly is pretty balanced.
And yes, only 100 watts RMS if that's...

If you already have Memphis throughout your boat then look at the Memphis 6.5" HLCD. At $450 per pair loaded in pods with collars, they're tough to beat on value. Don't expect them to perform like an...

At first glance, it would seem improbable that the amplifier would go into the protect mode with more voltage rather than less voltage.
A few possibilities no matter how remote are:
A misdiagnosis....

My only concern is the heft of the collective bank and supporting structure over that span times the shock of a towboat. If you can create a transverse bridge across that area with a good structure...

Yes, you are missing a little something.
First, let me say that I have put thousands of non-marine automotive speakers in boats (one season was over 250 pair on the tower alone). So I'm not against...

The Kicker KS60 is going to have a nice top end because it has the good metal dome tweeter. The entry level Kicker coaxials of the past (often found in OEM) using the W-dome sounded erratic and harsh...

It's going to vary.
If you are running a bass-reflex 12" or 13.5" you will have both the woofer and port facing outward. You would not want to aim either the woofer or port in a tight, confined...

Well Sonic isn't a JL Audio dealer so I wouldn't buy a precision woofer that has its serial number removed from under the spider and re-glued with what?

Yes, an RE XXX 15 is a beast and if you...

Ryan,
A subwoofer, whether sealed or ported, big or small, etc. etc. etc. doesn't work differently between a boat and car. The woofer and box system is a self-dependent tuned resonator regardless of...

Harold,
I think I can put this in perspective for you.
First, it is difficult to compare specs from outside any given brand because the standards are different.
For example, JL Audio gives you a...

That is a very impressive sounding subwoofer. However, you don't want to use that type of cabinet construction in a boat. Also, you do not want to orient those woofers front and rear. Side-firing...

If you are going to maintain the Syn2 amplifier then I would go the XS-12 route before the W6 route. The XS-12 is the rough equivalent of the 12W3 and either woofer will be more surface area than a...

The W3 in a single 4-ohm voice coil is your only choice in the JL Audio woofer line with a bridged Wetsounds Syn2 amplifier. The extra power over the thermal rating doesn't concern me.

I'm not sure I would ever trade two 12" subs for one 15". Two 12"s have about a third more surface area but only require 20 to 25% more enclosure in a bass-reflex.
