Dali...before you go any further...find out exactly what the models are of the 2 amps. They are M series for sure.

Ideally, JL recommends driving each of those speakers with 175 watts RMS at the high end of the scope. They peak at 225 watts RMS. The ideal way to accomplish that is by means of a MHD 600/4 or a MHD 750/1

Wow those amps are expensive. 320 for the small one and 600 for the large one on ebay.

The M 200/2 can not drive your JL tower speakers to their full potential...not by a far stretch. So getting another one to drive your second pair is not a great idea. You can spend days researching and you'll come back to the same conclusion...MHD 750/1 or MHD 600/4. Either of these will bring the JL tower speakers to life!

Your 700/5 is also not quite up to the task of driving your in-boat speakers. It seems like a neverending dilemma with MC... They certainly teamed up with a fabulous audio developer, but they keep pairing amps which are not up to the task of delivering the power with their speakers.

It really depends on how you look at it...if a GREAT sounding sound system is something you value and ENJOY, the cost to make it happen will be more than worth it...and only a fraction of the investment you made when you bought your MC.

So the 750/1 will deliver 187 watts to each tower speaker and the 600/4 will deliver 150 watts to each tower speaker? Is the 750/1 a one channel amp and the 600/4 a four channel amp? which one is better for my application?
