I will be doing a new install on a Ski Supreme V226 very soon and am looking at the following set up:
6 cabin co-ax speakers
4 tower speakers
1 12" subwoofer
2 6-channel amplifiers with the following specs:
Stereo @ 4 Ohms 6 x 185 Watts @ 95A
Stereo @ 2 Ohms 6 x 290 Watts @ 168A
Mono @ 4 Ohms 3 x 585 Watts @ 168A
I am thinking one amplifier can power the cabin 6 speakers, and the other amplifier can use 4 channels to cover the tower, then bridging the last 2 channels for the sub.
Another option for the second amplifier might be to brdge all the channels to provide mono to the tower and to the subwoofer.
Any thoughts? Not necesarily a noob to audio, but definitely a noob to marine audio!
Thanks for the suggestions!!!
