Hi guys

I want to upgrade my audio system in my boat and I have a few questions for you. I already have 2 batteries with a battery selector installed in my boat.

This is the system I looking to buy:

Kenwood KMR-700U radio (it has a Sub preout)
2 x Kenwood KCA-RC107MR remote control units

4 x Exile 6.5" 2-Way Marine Speakers (SX65C)
125 Watts RMS @ 4 Ohms

Exile Xi 800.4 Amplifier:
Into 4 ohm Stereo 125 x 4
Into 2 ohm Stereo 200 x 4
Into 4 ohm Bridge 400 x 2

OR

BOSS MR1000 Amplifier
MAX POWER, 2 OHM 250w x 4
RMS POWER, 4 OHM 100w x 4
MAX BRIDGED POWER, 4 OHM 500w x 2

Wich Amp would be a the better choice? Unless you have a better one to suggest?
On the Exile website the Xi800.4 specs are: Stable to 2ohm (stereo) or 4ohm (mono) but when you download there pdf doc you get the specs listed above. So is it mono or stereo: 125W x 4 @ 4 ohm?
Is it important to match RMS between the amp and the speakers? or should the amp have lower RMS?
I live in Ottawa,Ontario, Canada and I'm able to get the speakers from my local Future Shop store but the Exile Xi800.4 amp I can't seem to find any body in my city that can get it, any ideas how I can get my hands on one?

I just did a FULL Exile system in my Moomba. I delt directly with Brian at Exile. Give them a call directly and they will hook you up. Drop my forum name and Brian will know who I am.
As far as matching RMS, if you give a speaker clean power and cross it over then you will have no worries.
