Default old boat, new stereo equip

I recently purchased a 23ft deck boat with a non working stereo and 2 6.5in speakers. I plan to replace the stereo with a kenwood deck and add 4 new 6.5inch bazooka speakers. I would also like to add an amp and sub. I am considering the 10in bass tube, but I am unsure of whether to go with an amplified or passive. Would it make more sense to go with the amplified, and then add a smaller amp for the 6.5in speakers, or run 1 amp and power the speakers and a passive bass tube? I like the simplicity, easy installation and small profile of the bazooka tube. I really don't know much about amps and subs, so any help would be appreciated. What other things do I need to consider before making any purchases. Thanks.

Installing an amplified Tube, is always going to be the easiest route. You can also add one of our Marine Amplifiers, for the 4 6.5" speakers. Installation will be easy and you will come out saving a few dollars.
