Trying to start to slowly build a system piece by piece as the funds come in. I have decided to keep my old school 210 and basically start to build on to it.
I currently have 6 Polk Momo Coax's 80watts Rms at 4ohms
One Polk 12 that I added, and (4)Polk 6x9's on the tower in a custom box.
Currently still running the factory clarion amps which are pretty weak. I think I want to add a decent 5 channel and a decent 4 channel. I would run all 6 inboats and a sub of the 5channel. This leaves the 4 6x9's on the second 4 channel amp. I am ultimately heading towards Rev 10's on the Tower just need to wait a bit. I don't really have a ton of extra cash nor do I plan on joining any stereo comps. Just tunes for the rider and an occasional anchor spot. Currently the 2 bow speakers are run off the head unit as I have a 4 channel clarion running the sub and 4 Momos. It's no where near rms at around 50watts per momo. I also have a Clarion 2 channel running the 4 6x9's
I was originally thinking of going MB Quart class D for the $$ and features. They seem to get good reviews as midrange amps.
MB Quart OA 1100.5 for the 6 inboats and sub
MB Quart OA 800.4 for the (4) 6x9's
This way when I do the Rev 10's I have 400 watts rms going bridged to to each Rev 10 and all the inboats see the amplified signal.
Someone else recommended going with 2 PPI 900.4's instead. Leaving the head unit to hit the bow speakers . His argument was I would appreciate the built in cooling fans to keep the amp heat down. He stated the bow speakers sit so high they don't really need the extra boost. I also rarely ever have a bow full of people. I was really eying up those Onyx amps for the price. I had MB quart tower speakers in Boss cans on my 98 Air Nautique that were bombproof, but doing some research here the PPI seems to be way more talked about.
Any thoughts ?
Scrap it all and get different amps? As much as I would love Wetsounds or JL I just can't justify the cash on that quality of amp for one maybe two days a week.
