Amplifier question

I have a question about the stock amps that you get from the factory. I've noticed that our tower speakers aren't as loud as some of the other Mastercrafts in our area. is there any way to turn up the amp? or would a new amp work better?

You might want to post year, make and model of the amp and what kind and how many speakers you are trying to power. There's a few guys here that are really good with stereo questions if you give them them a little more info.

Every newer MC I've seen, including mine, maybe 10 or so all have effectively 75W wired to each speaker. Those 7.7" JL tower speakers can take 150W + of clean power.
That's what will make the difference.
Assuming you have an 05-up MC with factory tower speakers.
If you have the older CLarions, they can't handle as much power.
