    Independent of the specific noise that you are describing, do these additional LEDs interfere with FM radio reception?

    The dual 4-ohm voice coil in parallel (net 2-ohm) on a monoblock amplifier is the right choice.

    Nothing sounds better than a subwoofer where the power nor driver is over-taxed. The rest is up to...

    Yes, 600 watts total whether you wire the voice coils in series or parallel. Either route is fine in order to get the best match with a particular amplifier. The only thing you should not do is use...

    Okay, I originally overlooked that because of the 'DC' abbreviation.

    Jeff,
    I re-read your OP. Did you indicate that you still have noise on the tower speakers with the input RCAs of the tower amplifier disconnected at the amplifier end?

    Under the driver's helm is the best location by a country mile even if you must size the woofer down. That is the only location where you can get direct radiation.

    It might help to remove the speakers from the tower before towing because any shimmy over time can wear out the connection. Imagine a heavy bowling ball suspended from a small neck and having to...

    I don't necessarily suspect water. Just being as thorough as possible. The fuse blew for a reason and that protects you from something more catastrophic. You're in good hands with Wetsounds.

    It's odd that you have noise in just one zone. Are you absolutely positive that the noise is exclusive to the tower speakers? Have you increased the input gain on two channels of the in-boat...

    lakemurray,

    All boats have multiple forms of noise within their DC system. And alternator whine is the most prominent. The difference is that a well-planned & installed system does not permit the...

    The amplifier(s) cannot power up without the source unit powering up first. So this is an important distinction. Does the source unit display come on even though you get no sound?

    The easiest way to proceed is to use the existing 4-conductors up the tower. Series the two 4-ohm speakers on each side for an 8-ohm load. Bridge the four amplifier channels into two channels. You...
