Here's my situation: I spent a crapload on stereo gear to "do it the right way" the first time around. Problem is, I now have two JL amps that I believe have failed (amps are the a6450 70w x 4, and slash series 300/2). My 1000/1 sub amp is the only one still working correctly. I'm going to have the amps pulled this week to double-check that they are shot... but I've tested the heck out of everything and am 99% sure both amps are toast.
So... on the second time around...
I'm not going JL. I'm looking for small-space efficiency, simplicity... and affordability. The Alpine PDX amplifiers seem to fit the bill.
Here's what I need to power:
- 4 Wetsounds XS-650's (high-pass crossover setting)
- 2 Wetsounds Pro 80's on the tower (no crossover)
For extreme simplicity's sake, would the PDX-5 work to replace the two amps and power all 6 speakers on the 4-channels and the tower speakers on the 5th channel?
Or would I be better off replacing the two amps with a PDX-4.150 and a PDX-2.150? And if so... opinions on stacking these amps on top of each other in a boat?
Thanks in advance!
