    I still have my stock cabin speakers. The first improvement I made was running them on high pass after adding a sub. The sub does a much better job down in its range and allows the cabins to just do their job. Way better. Then I upgraded my lousy tower speakers to the Exile SXT's. Pretty happy overall now.

    I think I have the stock Kicker 200.4 running the 6 cabins. I have the 250.2 that came with my tower speakers bridged to run my subwoofer. I have an old school Exile 600.2 running 4 SXT's on the tower. I did add a second battery. I rarely run the system for more than an hour sitting without the engine running so my 2 batteries are plenty.

    Here's a recommendation for an in-boat multi-channel amplifier to fit your usage.
    The JL Audio XD700/5.
    All the power you'll need.
    2-year warranty.
    Cleanest Class D amplifier available. Note: It's engineered in the US. And, you definitely want the higher efficiency of Class D (60% more efficient, draws less current, battery lasts longer, runs cooler).
    This unit is fully equipped and not stripped. The JL Audio XD700/5 has a fully configurable input section plus a remote port that allows control of all five channels or just the sub section. Nice for zone controls at your fingertips.
    Package this with a JL Audio W1 10" or 12" subwoofer and your in-boat system will rock.
    For a package savings deal visit Odin with Earmark Marine. Service and technical support is great plus he ships promptly.

    Default 5 channel information

    Sky - with permission, I'll post your pm msg here so the group has the benefit of the answer. You ask a good question.

    PM Msg: So is that [Javelin] amp the only one you have/need for all cabin+sub+towers? How many towers do you have? Forgive me as I am new to audio lingo and upgrades when dealing with differnt channels and watts and such.
    Thanks!


    The Javelin is a high performance 5 channel amplifier. Typically speaking, any given 5 ch amp will be utilized for the cabin zone and the sub zone of the audio setup. Look at a 5 ch amp like this 4 x ??? power + 1 x ??? power. The 4x power will be directed to your cabin speakers on chan 1-4 and the 5th channel directed to your sub. So to answer your Q about the Javelin; the amp will power your cabin and sub. You'll need a dedicated amp for whatever tower speakers you choose.

    The Version 2 Javelin amp just started shipping and specs 4x150 + 1x800 CEA power rated. For its Class D size...It's more than capable of powering a high end 12" woofer as well. You'd probably want to marry it to the XM30.2 tower amplifier and presto, system complete.

    A good 5 ch. amp is a great way to go to take care of everything in boat. I had one I used to run but it was a little to wimpy for the job. I am thinking about doing something different this year. I'm not thrilled with running my sub off the Kicker 250.2 bridged. I think it could use some more power.
