With a single 12W6 and four interior coaxials you could run a JL Audio HD900/5 or a JL Audio XD1000/5....although a little more power for that sub would be better. That means you will definitely need two independent amplifiers considering the tower.
With dual 12W6s you could run dual XD1000/5s with one running a sub plus interior coaxials and the other amplifier running a sub plus bridged on the tower.
Another dual amplifier route would be a JL Audio XD800/8 running four channels to the in-boat coaxials plus four channels bridged into a pair of tower speakers. Then the second amplifier would drive the sub(s). For example, like an HD750/1 or an XD1000/1 driving a single 12W6.
Unless the two subs are side-by-side in the same location and oriented the same and loaded the same, I am going to strongly recommend against running dual subs when it means in separate locations. For efficiency and for sound quality, run the best single sub in the best location and power it to its full potential (unless of course you can compound load two side-by-side).
You might check in with Odin at Earmark Marine and find out when JL Audio is planning to ship their 880 tower speaker & pods. That's going to be a serious SQ tower speaker!
