Amp question for 1 pair of Rev 10s


Recommended Posts

Just bought a 2019 24MXZ with no tower speakers and will be putting a pair of Rev10s on from a previous boat.  My dealer is telling me that I should let them install a SYN-DX2 amp to power them and they will do it at cost (they messed up on something else so trying to make it right).  My question is is the amp adequate for one pair of Rev10s?  I've read where it may be a little underpowered.  If dealer installs it will all be warrantied vs. having a 3rd party install and possibly having an issue.   I was debating putting in a SD2 but decided to go with one pair vs. two as everything i've read says one pair is more than enough.

Appreciate the thoughts.  Also, i'm a mid 40's guy not looking to blow ear drums or have everyone on the lake hear me!

Interesting that Malibu warrants what a dealer does aftermarket. Anywho, although a syn-DX2, whether is the consumer or DPS version, is not going to power the a 10" HLCD to its potential, it will do fine. A larger speaker is more efficient, so we gain volume over a smaller speaker.

Yes the dealer told me that it wouldn’t be able to be adjusted and he didn’t think there would be a way to integrate it into the rest of the system.   My other option is buy another amp and have an audio place install it.   The SYN-DX2 is the AMP that comes with the boat when ordered with 2 Pair of Rev10s and I’m only going to have one pair.
