Checking in to verify some research before ordering.

I sold my boat a few years back and kind of got out of it. A few of my friends bought boats this year and we are getting ready to do a wetsounds upgrade In one of them. Wanting to make sure I'm recommending him right since its been 6-7 years since I bought my stuff.

420BT
2 pair rev 10
SD2 to run tower
3 pair revo 6. He will be removing 3 pair of kicker 6.5
he wants to save a little on the in boat amp What do you recommend. Syn4? Arc 300.4?

I recommended probably 2 L16 6v for him. What do you guys say? He doesnt want to go all out but he wants it right with a reasonable budget.

I recommended something like 1-2 DC level 3 12's for woofers. What amp do you recommend to run those these days. Need about 2000-2500w

Ofc speaker and power wire from knuconcept along with distribution blocks and fuses.

Are you looking to order from some place that actually claims to be selling those retired models? The Syn amps have been gone for a number of years and the SDX replaced the SD a few seasons back as well. Hard to compete with retired models that are likely (should be) deeply discounted.

Out of the current offerings, the Syn-DX2.3HP for 2 pair of Rev-10 and the HTX-6 for 3 pair of in-boats. The SDX-2500 is 2500W rms @ 1 ohm

No, I just figured you guys would know what I meant without adding all the extra hype wetsounds is throwing in their models along with the price increases.

There is no hype. With some looking, you will see that there is a CLEAR difference between the old Syn series and the new Syn-DX series. Open chassis fan-cooled class-G/H compared to a closed chassis Class-D with covered protected controls. All the connections on one side so the amp can be mounted with the connection down which minimizes the chance of water intrusion. There are some physical and internal difference between the SD and the new SDX series, although not as pronounced as the difference between the Syn and Syn-DX. The HTX is heads above the previous HT series.

So very valid question to ask, considering there are outlets still listing these retired models for sale. My point was, with the expected discounts on retired models, you would be hard pressed to find amps with similar wattage and performance within that discounted price range.

There have been cost increases all across the mobile 12V electronics industry, resulting in a rise in retail pricing. Its not unique to any single brand.
