    Default New Stereo gear???

    Soooo, I have a new project boat that I going to install a complete new stereo.

    What I am thinking of is;

    • Reuse my 12” JL Audio W6 sub in it’s existing sealed box and build it in the helm support (possible ported) after the season is over.
    • Reuse my Pro Mariner 20 on-board charger

    Head Unit:
    • Kenwood KMR-700U Head Unit
    • Kenwood KCA-RC55MR wired remote
    • Sirius adapter

    Tower Speakers;
    • Two sets (4 total) Wet Sounds Icon8s
    • Black
    • Fixed Clamp
    • LED Ring – RGB
    • Translucent Grills

    In-Boats:
    • Three sets (6 total) Wet Sounds XS-650-RGB
    • LED Rings-RGB

    • Wet Sounds WS-420sq zone control
    • (1)LED controller – The new one that plugs in-line with the LFE RCA (Is that all I need?)

    Amps;
    • Towers – Kicker KXM400.2 Should I go to the KXM400.4? I cant find the specs on these new Kicker marine amps. Will the KXM400.4 give me more power at the towers? (Phil?? Mike?? Anyone??)
    • Inboats and Sub – Kicker KXM800.5 (The W6 is wired for a 2 ohm load)

    For 2 pair of the Icons, stick with the 2 chnl KXM400.2. It will deliver 200W rms x 2 @ 2 ohm, so a net of 100W rms to each Icon. The 4 chnl KXM400.4 will deliver 50W rms x 4 @ 4 ohm. That would be only 50W to each Icon. Now, a pair of KXM400.4's in 2 chnl mode would be 200W rms to each Icon.

    By the way, Kicker told my stereo shop guy that the amps wont be shipping for a few weeks!!!! NO BUENO!!
