Audio Suggestions

Alright fellas! I'm looking at making some changes to my set up. I'm tired of messing around trying to make what I have work. I'm pretty sure I'm under powering what I have & I'm leaning towards getting new amp(s). Whatever I get, I want to make sure it has enough power to handle what I do have.

Here is what I have:
-CMD6 head unit
-JL M600/6.ch 1&2, 3&4 bridged for Rev 8's, ch 5&6 run the cabin speakers
-JL M600/1.runs the sub
-JL 10" W3v3 sub (in a sealed box from JL)
-Rev 8 (one pair)
-JL M770 cabin speaker (2 pair)
-Stinger battery (for audio only)

I leaning towards Wetsounds HT4 for the Rev 8's. Keeping the 660/6 for the cabin speakers & sub. Get rid of the 600/1. I'm not opposed to dumping the 600/6 for another amp; maybe another Wetsounds amp. I would like to keep the amount of amps in the boat to two for the cabin speakers & the Rev 8's.

I'm not sold on the sub I have. I've been looking at the Wetsounds HT-AS-10, which comes with an amp. Anyone have one of these? Or buying another 10" sub & building ported box.

Any thoughts, suggestions or comments will be appreciated.

Is the W3 2 ohm or 4 ohm?

The JL Audio XD amplifiers are tough to beat.
You absolutely must have a dedicated channel per each M770 in-boat speaker. So an XD800/8 would be much better. If you already have the 600/6 then add an XD200/2 or a marine equivalent.
Please don't use an automotive enclosure in a boat.

Not a huge difference going from the current 10W3 @ 400W to the HT-10 @ 500W. So I would consider keeping the 600/1 and stepping up to a 12 4 ohm DVC.

Leave the 600/6 for in-boats with 2 open chnls for a 3rd pair

HT-4 for the Rev-8
