    Ok curious if I can get an answer on this , I have a 2004 25LSV. I’ve added the illusions X tower to it in 06, it’s all prewired . I have finally come around to add the speakers to it . I have the Sony Xplod system with 600 watt amp , along with two bow , two mid and two stern speakers . So looking at the wiring out of the stereo I have quite some length of speaker wire zipped tied up , does anyone know if they prewired for speakers in a tower even thought I didn’t purchase at time of sale.i do know when I added a perfect pass all the specific wires were there for it . Was hoping they prewired for the tower speakers to ? Or if someone has knows how I may obtain a wire schamatic ? Thanks

      You need to post this in the Stereo Forum.

    I just ordered a 24MXZ delivering in mid June. Looking for the best boat fenders both for docking and tying up to other boats.  Afraid my current ones won't workout as they were used on a 2005 VLX 21.5 (to small).  Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

      Go to Exile Audio and get the Buoy Balls.  They are the best in the world. Will not scratch your boat.

    Who's gonna start a thread poking fun at the FB group?  Did you see the one about the auto wedge not locking :biggrin:

    Where did you get your replacement touch screen. I'm in need of one and it's time to bit the bullet. It looks like in one of your earlier posts you got it for around$1600. Thanks,

      Looking at some of the boat prices these days our don't seem to be de-valuating all that much. I see that you also hydrofoil. That looks fun but sketchy!

      hi Bernie,   Been real good.  Retired two years ago, presently selling our home in Hillsboro and moving to a 55+ active community in Monroe NJ.  7 years ago we started spending our summers in upstate NY. Other than being empty nesters and grandparents now, nothing really changed.  Good to hear from you.

    Just wanted to know how easy the Fulton winch was to install on your extreme trailer? I’m about to upgrade to the 3200 f2

    Did u ever hear from your dealer about updating to the the newer faster servos for the surf gate on your boat, I to have a 2013 Malibu and am interested in this upgrade.

    Hoping you might be able to help. Do you still have your 2014 20 MXZ? I bought one last year and have had trouble getting enough push from the wake to drop the rope. I think I need some more weight in the bow, but don't want a bag sitting up there. I've been filling all hard tanks as well as the PNP's about half full.

    I'd love to get some feedback from someone else who has this boat.

      I am able to drop the rope.  I am 6'2" tall and weight about 180 pounds.  I use my son's board which is a Ronix Koal Fish 2014 model.  I think it's a 5 foot board.  I also have a Liquid Force Nose Rider that is a little longer, probably better for my weight, but it is too slow, I can't stay in the pocket with it.

      Regarding the boat set up, I use full hard ballast, full plug and play in the back, and Power Wedge all the way down.  I have a small crew, me, my wife (125 lbs) and my son (100 lbs), so when I am surfing there is only 225 lbs of crew in the boat.  So I bought 400 pounds of stainless steel shot for extra weight (10 - 40 lbs bags).  But I distribute that around the boat, I don't have in all in the front.  I think I have 2 bags in the front anchor compartment, 2 bags next to the batteries, 2 bags in that little storage area in front of the driver's helm and then the remainder under the seats towards the back.

      So, my opinion is: that is is not all about weight in the front.  I think the weigh has to be distributed, full Power Wedge helps the push and the board has to be fast.

    My wife told me to get the boat ready. She wants to get better at surfing this summer. I love her.
