I'm new here and hope to gain some solid knowledge about boat stereos. I have posted some questions on some of the car audio forums, but there is not much happening there.
I have a Cobalt 226 with a Samson tower. I have dual batteries with a combiner to keep eveything powered. I'm working on upgrading the stereo and have most of the components. The HU is a Pioneer DEH-P5000UB. In the main cabin, I have 4 Polk DB651 speakers and 2 more in the bow. On the tower I have 4 Polk DB651 speakers in Aerial Cans and a pair of Kicker KMT6 speakers pods. The Polks in the cabin can be wired any way I want; series, parallel or combined.
I need to add subs and an amp (or 3) to power it all. I have been lookign at Alpine PDF-F6 amps for all the speakers except the subs, Kicker amps and JL HD or XD amps.
I want to maximize the speakers I have now, have some headroom for the future and not spend money on something that provides no benefit (since boats are acoustically horrible anyway).
What would you recommend?
