So just picked up or first V Drive a Wakesetter 23LSV. Looking to get a stereo dialed in on it. I have been doing a little research here so thanks to everyone who posts.
Well I am a broke college graduate. Statring his new career in Civil Engineering and figured its time to jump into the real world and get some debt
The guy who owned it before me installed 4 Polk Momos running them through a Kenwood zx650.4 amp. He also has a kicker S10 L5 sub in there off a Kicker mono amp. Well am thinking of adding some tower speakers to the boat. I can't really do pro audio. I am in Wisconsin where we only use the boat half a year max. So I am leaning towards the Kicker Kb6000 tower speakers after trying to figure out what is the best for the $$. Would like to stay with a kicker amp as I have read here that they are great for the money, but I came across these BOSS amps at a retailer here in northern Wisconsin that seem to offer some of the same/close specs within regards to RMS and wattage and what not at a little cheaper cost. Only thing is that I know nothing about the Boss amps. Guy says they are decent, but he selling them and JL. Are they garbage? I went to their website and well it seems like a legit company offering a ton of different products including marine amps and marine stereo stuff. I am not big on the marine amps, think a regular one will do the trick for less money.
This Boss GT580 2 channel seems like a pretty good deal with 200 watts RMS x 2 @4ohms which I feel will push 2 of the KB 6000 rated for what the recommend for 100 watts rms @ 4 ohms. Also looked at the GT480 which was rated 150 x4 RMS @4ohms , but for 30bucks more the 580 can be had so figure not a bad ide to go up one. Any thoughts?
I haven't been into stereo stuff for sometime now so really not sure which stuff is still pretty decent and not gonna break the bank. Even when I had stuff it still wasn't always the best. So I guess my question is what kind of quality would you gain or loose by going with the Boss over the Kicker.
Here's a link to the Boss stuff
