    So new to this season I added 4 wet sounds speakers and a wet sounds htx~4 amp I want to add two tower speakers, if I put the 4 speakers on 2 channels and the tower speakers on the other two would that work?

    Yes it will work, but Tower Speakers need lots of power and technically you will be providing more power to your other speakers because you you are halving the ohms load by running them in parallel.

    Yes, that will work.
    And yes, the total power in the boat will exceed the total power on the tower. You will need full zone control between these two areas.
    Typically the demand for power on tower speakers is far greater. Much will depend on the specific tower speaker (standard coaxial or HLCD) and your type of usage (whether at rest, at surf range, or at wake range). So I would consider the HTX-4 your temporary amplifier solution. Per my crystal ball, the HTX-4 will likely be re-purposed and supplemented in the future.

    I have htx 6 w witha set of Revo 6 s in my center console and set of rev8 on my t top the center console speakers are going to channel 1 and 2 to the Rev eights are bridged in Channel 3and 4 for one speaker and channel 5 and 6 for the other speaker and I have a fusion deck it has zone control so you can turn up the tower speakers so you can turn it down if it's to loud while no one is behind the boat. if do a setup like that you need y connectors for your RCA's to bridge depending on how many zones come out of your head unit mine had two sets it's pretty loud in the driveway haven't been out on the water with the Rev 8 s yet.
