Hey guys,

I upgraded to an '06 Malibu LSV last summer. The boat came with a stereo that should be more than I need, but it has some problems. I was finally able to crawl around and investigate the setup. Now I just need to find out what to do with it. Any help would be much appreciated!

Audio setup:
    1 Wetsounds Syn 6 amp
    2 Pairs of Wetsounds Pro60s on the tower
    2 Pairs of Wetsounds xs-650s in the interior
    Smallish (8-10") Subwoofer
    Kenwood KDC-MP4032 head-unit which is not driving any speakers


Problems:
    2 of the Pro60s never emit sound (both on port side coming from the same speaker wire)
    There is very little sound coming out of the Pro60s on the starboard side
    I need to be able to balance the Pro60s with The Balance and Fader settings on the head unit doesn't do anything productive


Questions:
    Can the Syn 6 support this load? Reading their configuration recommendations it sounds like it will handle 2 out of the 3 of these duties. I've never heard of anyone running 8 speakers+sub. But I'm pretty new to Wetsounds
    How should I configure this to allow more control?
    Do I need Wetsounds EQ?


Current Configuration: (The way the amp was mounted I couldn't see the setup, but took pictures with my phone. See attached)
    3 RCA pairs run from the head unit to the Syn 6. I'm not sure exactly which port which goes, the wires aren't labeled and I haven't been able to sort them out yet (Rear, Front, Sub)
    The interior xs-650s (4) are driven from Ports 1 & 2
    The port-side Pro60s (2) are driven from Port 3
    The starboard-side Pro60s (2) are driven from Port 4
    Port 5 is empty
    Port 6 drives the sub


Other things to note: I have an extra 2 channel amp that will push a sub sitting in my storage unit if it would help. I expected that the Port-Side Pro60s the wire had become disconnected. But it was still connected and looked good. Now I wonder if it's the Amp settings or a hidden connection that's the problem.

Disconnect the tower speaker wires that wont play at the amp. Then take the speaker wires, disconnect them and run an ohm meter and see what you have. Also, make sure the speakers are wired correctly use this to find out. http://www.rockfordfosgate.com/rftech/woofer_wizard.asp You don't want the ohms to get too low or high for the amp.

Thanks man, I was going to test the impedance but I forgot my voltmeter at home so I couldn't. That'll be next step. Been talking to the guys at themalibucrew and found out I basically need another amp. That Syn6 won't handle everything I'm trying to do. I'm just going to grab my Rockford amp and use that.

Still working on ironing out the details
