Marine boat speaker set up help

Marine speaker set up

Looking for some help with the boat sound system.

6 speakers Pyle Hydra 75 Watts RMS/150 Watts peak. It has a frequency response of 100 Hz-20 Khz and 4 Ohms impedance
2 tower speakers boss mrwt69 550 Watts, 275 watts rms 4 OhmsFrequency response: 40Hz – 20kHz
The boat has a Excile 800.4 amp which is a 4 channel amp
Can i use this excile amp to power these speakers? Or will it be over working the amp?
If i have to run another amp what size of power cable should i be using? Ideally if i can use the same amp that would be best

So a total of 8 speakers?


Yes you can. 2 speakers per channel. this gives the amp a 2 ohm load per channel. Ideally, maybe down the road adding a second amp to just power the towers will add "more". But for the mean time, your amp will work.


Play around with onboard crossover to keep the speakers playing as clearly as possible.

Ok. Right now the boat has 2 front. 2 mid. 2 rear hooked to the amp. I believe the mid and rear are ran in parallel with each other. I just dont want to over load the amp. Maybe ill just throw in a spare clarion 2 channel amp i have for the 2 tower speakers
