Default What to do with extra amp?

Hi guys,
I am currently running the stock JBL stereo in my sea hunt ultra 225. The only thing not stock is a JL Audio m10ib sub powered by a JL MHX 300/1 amp sticking out the starboard side of my console.

This week I went a little crazy and purchased:
2 pairs of m770’s
1 pair of m650’s for the t top
JL 600/6 amp to power them

1 additional m10ib sub
JL 600/1 amp to power both subs

That leaves me with an extra 300/1 amp. What else can I power with this? Could I use it to power some tower speakers like you see on a wakeboard boat? Would that be overkill? The amp isn’t worth much but it’s only a few months old and I hate to see it go to waste.

I think the 300/1 amp is designed to power a sub, so that kind of limits your options, add a third sub?

sell the amp. 6 speakers and 2 subs in a 22ft boat is plenty. You start drilling more holes and you're gonna start affecting the structural integrity of your hull's liner! Also, you don't need the additional power draw. You're gonna need to keep that engine running to prevent your batteries dying at rest.
