So just picked up a new ride. Got a great deal on a mint 2000 X-Star. Yeah we went backwards in the years selling our 04 Cyclone, but hey got the kids now and they come first. There was only one issue with the boat and that is that the guy who had it before me installed and upgraded all the stereo stuff. He was a "thought he new how to wire it guy." And well he didn;t know what he was doing. He bought some decent stuff imo. but wired like a goof. I am not a stereo guy at all but it was very easy to spot...and I know the amp he used was not designed to push all 4 speakers and a 10 sub it was a clarion 4 channel.
So here is my questions for all you stereo guys. I am not looking to go crazy, looking for the most cost efficient way to get some good sound out of whats there already. I only have a single battery so not sure how big of an issue that is. He put in a new clarion head unit with Ipod capabilities, 4 Polk Momo mmc650's' and a JL W6 10 inch sub. Looking for the best way to get some good sound out of this setup. I re ran all the speaker wire so its good to go.......Just trying to decide how to hardwire it all together. A guy at work recommended going with a JBL GTO755.6 II 6 channel amp to push everything. What do you all think? My original idea was to just run the 4 polks off the head unit and just buy a single channel amp to push the sub........ His way I think would require a second battery, is that right? Just looking for some advice info as I am not stereo inclined at all. Thanks
