I recently bought and X45 with the tower and 4 speakers, the tower seems to shake and flex alot in rough waters, is this common?

Check with your dealer about ordering the stiffener for the tower. There are 2 new braces that you can buy to prevent some sway.

Those in rough waters coupled with that extra weight are prone to swaying. Mine has no speakers and does not sway. MC's answer to this is to offer the purchase of an additional brace. You should look at this brace carefully and see if it is something you can tolerate. You might settle with the shaking in leau of the brace.

If you ask me it should not shake in any surface conditions, period.

I agree, I thought it should not shake but the dealer said it was normal with all that extra weight, so long as noting goes wrong, I can probably deal with the shake.

yup, and to think they were not included with the 80-90K he just $helled out for the boat ... on a boat that expensive I would sure as heck hope they included braces for all the boats ...

sounds like somebody is getting nickle and dimed'

I got nothing extra thrown in on this deal, although I paid 69K for the boat so maybe I got a decent deal??

I thought it was pretty sweet as well, the dealer is not selling MC's anymore and I think that had something to do with it, they are clearing there showroom for Malibus.

Ouch. Why would any dealer switch to The urban look of a Bu?

I have an '07 X30 with all (4) speakers mounted on it. Put the braces on last weekend and the difference is night and day. I'd say 90% of the side-to-side shake is gone. Talk to your dealer nice & they should be able to get you a price break from MC. I think these braces are std. for '08 boats except X-Stars and X80's. MC is all about making satisfied customers & has an easy fix for the problem and is willing to help out (at least in my case).

I think he's talking about Daryl Moore marine in Houston/Spring. They didn't switch. They used to carry both. Never saw a new 197 on the floor there in all the years I dropped by.

So they should give him really good deal price on a part he needs to fix a design flaw? Wow, that's swell! With friends like that...:rolleyes:

Assuming MC is actually making these ugly braces standard on the 08s, I find it interesting they're not in any of the pictures floating around of the new boats.

Well Big I'm out on Conroe as well so I'm sure I've seen you, though I was thinking of another X-45. Give me a shout next time your heading out. Fire Red Flake X-Star. Cheers!

The price was $0.00 including shipping. I don't mind how they look on the tower at all. There have been several posts with pictures of the braces installed. The braces do work. MC still has the best looking tower out there even with the braces.
