2016 Mastercraft X-30 adding tower speakers

I have a 2016 x-30 with the JL speakers with 2 subs and 2 amps fusion stereo and big touch screen. I am wondering what is involved with adding 2 more tower speakers with the 2 existing ones on there. It already has 2 receptacles and im wondering if I have to add another amp or if they can be hooked in to my pre-existing amp.

No they can’t be used in your current amp, but the wiring is already there. I would add another amp.

You likely can add the new towers to your existing amps, but ideally you would add/upgrade an amp. Do you know what amps you have now?

Should be a 800/8 and a 250 or 200/2

A wetsounds Syn2 powers four 7.7s great.

If there is a 200/2 present for the towers, which is what we've seen before, then technically, yes, you can wire a 2nd pair of tower speakers to that amp. However, Its super under powered for the 7.7 tower pods.

I do like the Syn-DX2 as an option though.

Im not sure the model and wattage of the amps I know theyre JLs and its a 2ch powering the speakers. Would it be better to add a higher wattage 4ch amp for 4 tower speakers or just add another of the same 2ch?

If you have a M200/2, your easiest option would be to replace it with a new amp IMO. You can likey utilize the same wiring for a new amp.

My setup was a 4 boat speakers, 2 towers, and 1 sub. The amps were a M700/5 and a M200/2. Both the amps used the same size power from the factory. I added a set of towers and an additional sub, and replaced the M200/2 with a M700/5. It was a super easy install considering I didnt have to run additional power wire, plus there was limited space on the amp rack panel which would have required a lot more work if I was adding another amp.

Do you have any pics of your wetsound tower speakers? what enclosures are you using on them? found a really good deal on some wet sound rev8s that would be cheaper to buy 4 of them than 2 more JL 7.7s
