Bought a used 2011 Supra 21v a couple months ago. I'm about to add a second battery, perko and iso relay, and thought I might wanna replace or add to some of the stereo components while I'm at it.

Looking for some honest input on how good (or bad) my system is, and what I might wanna replace. I'm definitely not looking to be the loudest on the lake, but I do like the bass .

Here's my system:

Head Unit: MB Quart Nautic There are actually two of these in the boat (1 in the glove compartment which is a CD changer, and the other is at the helm). http://www.mbquart.com/nautic_accessories.html

In-Boat Speakers: There are 6 Kicker in boat speakers. Not sure on the wattage, but they're the typical 5" or so circular guys.

Amp #1: Kicker DX200.4. I assume this runs the in boat speakers but haven't followed the wires just yet.

Amp #2: MTX TC4001 Thunder - Class D. http://outlet.crutchfield.com/S-JKfF...er-TC4001.html

Amp #3: Planet Audio AC 1600.4, 4-channel mosfet. http://www.vickersav.com/index.php?m...oducts_id=2792

Sub: Kicker L5. http://www.crutchfield.com/S-42RW0AL...-06S10L54.html

Tower Speakers: There are 4 Phoenix Gold tower speakers in Roswell cans. That's about all I know without pulling them out. Never heard of Phoenix Gold...

Sounds like you got a good average system. Nothing over the top, but it will make some noise and bass for sure.....

So if I was to spend a couple hundred bucks to upgrade something in my system, what would it be? Any low-hanging fruit or what is the weakest link in my system? The tower speakers? 1 of the amps too weak? Or is the sub too weak?

Once you start you can't stop and $200 isn't getting you anything you don't have. If you jump to 1k-2K you can get some good tower speakers and an amp that will do the job on em.

If you really only want to spend a couple hundred bucks get an EQ. Otherwise I'm with hatenpain step up to 1-2k and get some different tower speakers and an amp for them.
