Found a pic of my buddy’s X2. Different tower than yours but almost certain the height is the same. His Rev10s still leave enough clearance for his bimini. I just realized I might’ve been wrong about the year of his. It could be an ‘03.

I think rev 10s it is then. I was just worried they may get in the way but sounds like they will be fine and well worth it. I will try to push them as far to the sides of the tower as I can.

Get 10s. Make it work. Wish it would have been an option for me

Also like to not worry about the boat having enough power to start back up.
This is why im a fan of dual banks in a boat. Does not matter how large or small the stereo is or really how you use the boat. Having that backup cranking juice just in case.

It has 04 or later board racks. So unless they were changed over its an 04.

Another questions should I go with the swivel or fixed mount? Does one of mounts decrease the hand height more than the other?

I never really understood the desire to swivel the tower speakers forward. I don’t ever have mine on unless there is a wakeboarder riding. Even surfing I turn them down to 50% volume or less. So yeah, fixed mount should be fine unless you want to be that obnoxious guy blasting the tower speakers for no other reason than to be heard by everyone for a square mile.

Rev 10s or you will regret it. what's nice about the 05 tower is you can mount them up high so you dont knock yourself out everytime you walk under them.

It's an 03. I changed the board racks a few years ago.

The 05 tower is quite a bit lower than the 01-04 tower. I'd still get the 10s and just push them out wide. If they are out wide over the seats, you shouldn't have any issues.

The swivel mounts allow you to mount the speakers on a curved or slanted part of the tower and swivel the speakers to get them facing straight back. With the fixed mount the speakers are always going to be pointing 90 degrees from the mounting tube.

The quick release on the swivel mounts is also nice if you want to take the speakers down for any reason. I usually take mine off the tower on long road trips. I don't think the fixed mounts have a quick release.

How easy do the swivel mounts make it to take the speakers off? My boat will be on a lift on a uncovered dock in the summer. Is removal easy/quick enough to take the speakers off after each use to keep them away from the elements/theft?

My previous boat had 2 pairs of xm7s and I would remove them after each use as it only took about 30 seconds to remove 4 speakers from the tower.
