    Yes, the Wet Sounds amps are everything they say they are. They offer 3 lines and all are built from the ground up as a marine amp. The HT line and SD line are super efficient Class-D and the original Syn line is still very efficient as compared to old-school class-a/b. The HT and SD lines are sealed, small and pack lots of power for their size and price category. With the 3 lines, you get great flexibility.

    Something else worth looking into. Kicker is just about to release a brand new line of full-range Class-D marine amps. A 5 chnl, 4 chnl and 2 chnl. Heres some pics of the KXM-400.4 and a pair of KXM-800.5. Look for these to be available real soon. This setup is in a promo boat thats about to hit the water in a couple of weeks.

    Your sub selection needs to play into the amp choice, so keep that in mind.

    Trying to decide if they are truly worth the amount of money.

    the new kicker stuff looks like it'll offer some stellar performance for a little less coin. bet it'll be a big seller for them..

    I'd seriously consider this line over wetsounds for the price per $$

    I'm running the Kicker IX series on my inboats and sub. Very happy with these amps. I crank them and have yet to have them shut down or seriously drain my battery.

    I think they are worth it...I've had Kicker and now Wetsounds and they are definitely worth it.

    Arc Audio - Basically the same amps as wetsounds for less money. These are better than my Exile amps.

    I'm running arc and in listening to david from earmark, they are some similar designs, but the wetsounds units go the extra mile to make them water resistant for a marine environment where arc does not.
