Ok so here is my issue ....I have my boat at the fabricators / audio guy...Crazy part is I think I know more than him. I recently purchased an illusion  XS tower. Bone stock not even a tow hoop. So I’m learning day by day. The problem is we have a family vacation in three weeks and I don’t think I’m going to have my boat ready. I could really use your input / help. Since I don’t have any brackets is there anything that you guys can recommend set up wise  for Direct bolt on speakers? Also any recommendations on lighting/ light bars . Also Bimini/ ideas I’m in a pinch and new to these forms . But anyone that can help me out I’d appreciate it . Thanks again

XS uses the same bold pattern as the current G3 and Gx towers... so your speaker choices are pretty endless.  I wouldn't worry about lights till after your trip, just get the speakers up there and maybe a Bimini (and of course a tow hoop) and go have some fun. All speaker wires should be run from the port side. I believe light wires run from the starboard side but it has been a long time so I they might also be port side.

Just one last question? If you don’t mind. If Most speaker set ups for these towers have a circular clamps? Will they still aligned with the whole placement on the excess tower? Obviously when it’s disassembled? I guess the problem I’m having is understanding how the brackets will line up to the cast tower ? Thanks again

If this is any help, here is a pic of how my Rev10's are mounted to the tower.  On another note, I saw someone selling a bimini top for the XS on the Malibu Facebook group.  Looked in good shape and was a complete setup.

Wow looks awesome! Thanks if you can find that Bimini I’d be mighty thankful. Thanks again 

Here is the ad.  They had a few inquires, so might be sold, but worth a shot.
