Doubling the cockpit speakers from two to four, and adding a rear set, is a great upgrade. It somewhat helps with the volume. Ignoring the bow, if you have just two cockpit speakers and a subwoofer,...

Strongly echoing MLA's Kicker KM654 suggestion.

The Syn-DX6 is definitely adequate. But with the SD6 the entire system does get better. Although there is no real benefit to 585 watts for that sub. I have run that 10" IB sub with 340 watts (@ 14.4V...

I can't assure you that you would be making the right move. I think the Wetsounds Icon8 has pretty good midbass for an 8-inch tower speaker and that two pair would be getting the job done. From...
