Power Question- Rev 10 and PPI

Recommended Posts

Roush611

Yes I know, not another one of these threads ha ha ha. Well the tower enclosure that came with my boat is shot. It is a custom build with 4 4" speakers and it looks like 2 HLC's of some sort and a down firing 12" midbass on the bottom. Well I finally actually listened closely the other day when it was on and realized I only have 1 speaker of the whole thing working.

The amp powering the tower is an old school 800.5 PPI amp. I have a friend of a friend that is an audiophile that says he can rebuild the tower for $600. The unknow after this is how it will sound in comparison to say a set of rev 10's. So will the 800.5 PPI power a pair of Rev 10's? I am thinking I would rather spend the money on something I know is going to perform how I want it to, but the money aspect is always in the back of my head. 

 

Any input is appreciated.

At 2 X 200 watts (if that's correct?) on a pair of Rev10s it would be enough. Good but not great.

+1 on the Revs.....I chased the cheap route for a couple years. Ended up with the Revs anyways....do it once and do it right the first time.
