    Take a look at the amp next time you are on your boat and let us know what it is. If it's the zx200.4, then your 4 tower speakers are only getting 35w rms each whereas they can handle up to 100w rms so you are not getting anywhere near the potential of your tower speakers. I would suggest using that amp to run your 6 cabin speakers and then getting the ZX450.2 for your towers. Wire the speakers in parallel so that the amp sees a 2 ohm load and it will deliver 112.5w rms to each speaker which matches well with your speaker's rms rating. It will sound so much better especially at higher volumes than it does now.

    Here's the link to it:

    Thanks for the help! Adding the 2nd amp for the towers is the best solution.
