I am looking at getting this amp http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAudio/p_28509_MB_Quart_ONX4125.aspx


I want to bridge each channel and hook it up to my boss 8 inch tower speakers.

Problem is I will need something to run the boat internal speakers. They are just 4 stock clarion 6.5s I think 100w peak each. Can I just get a 2 channel little 200watt amp? Those little amps dont have built in crossovers so how can i stop bass form going to them?

Your head unit should be enough to power the stock speakers without an amp. If you do decide you want an amp still just get a smaller one without a crossover. They make these things high and low pass filters. You hook them up into the speaker wires and they are used to filter out the lows or the highs. They are relatively inexpensive also.

Here is a link to some of the filters

Agreed on the low/high pass filters.

Dont get that amp. Look up the krypt on ebay. Much better, and for marine use. You will not be sorry.
