Hi Guys.
i need to put in a new multichannel amp, I'm running a pair of kicker mt60 tower speakers. 4 in boat speakers that are kicker new i forget the model and a mb quart marine sub. here are the amps I'm thinking about. ordered in preference. some by price some by feature.
1: MB Quart marin nau660, like the price, and the manufacture but it 60 per channel across the 4 and the bridge mono 5th channel is is only 180, still more then my stock clarion all around.
2: rockford fosgate r-600-5 this has the most power out of the choices but its not marine. which I'm not worried about.
3:kicker marine zxm700.5 good power, good brand, the more expensive of the 3.

whats you thoughts?

I was looking hard at the Kicker 700.5 but ended up going with the Class D Polk D5000.5:

It's rated for about the same output as the Kicker but is much smaller and more efficient.
It's not well published but it IS a marine certified amp and can be had from various online sources for around $325 shipped.

I really like it so far.
