hey guys i need to replace my deck in my boat it is currently running 4 6.5s. i want to add a couple little pod speakers up on my bimini tower when i add the new radio what i am asking is can i run 4 of the speakers off a 4 channel amp and then the other 2 off the deck or should i try to run all 6 speakers off the amp. the amp is a 400watt max rating amp. and each speaker is rated at 5-50 watts rms power.

what i was thinking is running the 2 on the tower and the 2 in the front of my boat on the amp with the front pre outs from the deck and then putting a splitter at the amp for both inputs. and then running the 2 in the back of my boat on the rear of the outputs on the deck will this work?

run them off an amp, forget deck power...your in a wide open space, you'll need as much sound as you can. The deck wont have enough power.
run the 4 speakers on the boat with the 4 channel, then a seperate 2 channel for the two towers, which should handle more power, and need more power.
Or, a 6 channel amp??
