Pete,

What I would do is move the generator to the same terminal on the switch as the battery so the switch can be off when the electronics are not in use.

At 600 watts RMS for the 4-ch version the price is definitely right.... I was looking to spend about the same on a 50x4 so to get 175x4 it's probably worth looking into and even if the power output...

Are amplifiers smaller than they used to be?

I haven't bought an amplifier in 15 years and I'm looking to add some to the boat. What I'm finding is that a modern 50x4 appears to be much smaller and cheaper than it's old counterpart. Right now,...
