I saw this boat on Ebay and I wasn't sure what these pieces below the port and starboard seats are or for. Was this just an extra piece of bling they added to the X-Series boats? Any ideas? Looks like the owner removed the flyhigh valves before the repo. I like the idea of adding another pair of JL seperates under rear seats.

I was wondering the same thing about the extras there as well. I just recently purchased an 06 X2 and it does not have the holes below the rear seat, what are those for?

No idea, have not seen those x-plates nor the holes under the rear seat.

I'm pretty sure the holes are where they had the valves mounted for the Flyhigh fat sac install. There's a thread around here or wakeworld that shows someone mounting the valves in that location.

Edit: Here is the thread over at wakeworld that shows the valves in that location:

I believe I have all of those sacs or some similar, the guy I bought my boat from just teed the rear sacs into the factory ballast and I think he used a seperate pump for the front one. I ended up taking them out and putting it back factory, or best I could tell it was supposed to go, Im not to worried about extra ballast now being that we bought the boat for the extra room (last boat was an X7). Not sure how the footin' will be but we'll give it a shot! Might just have to take up surfing full-time.

Never seen the plates. The holes are from the fly high valve install. I put mine in the back lockers so they are hidden.

They look like MCBD old X series license plates.

Could there be subwoofers mounted behind those square "screens"?

Good call I just went back and looked at the auction and it says the boat has 3 12" subs. I was just wondering if these were factory parts or custom pieces. Here is the Ebay auction if anyone is interested:

I cannot believe the bidding got up to 36,500 without any board racks or speakers. I wonder what his crazy reserve must be?

You got a much better deal than typical. An X2 for $40K is still a steal IMO. Auction ended so I didn't get to see any details.

Good call, my 197 had something similar cut into the walk thru since the sub was under observer seat. Dealer did install and used the vents that are on the back of the 197
