Tower for 215 '06 Maristar

Looking to get a tower. Value is the name of the game. Don't care too much about collapsibility as I will not have a garage to store it in. I want something that has a compatable Bimini. Not planning on using my current Bimini. I'd like to get racks tha swivel. Speakers are a must too. Let's see your pics of thE tower you installed on your Maristar with Bimini open and rolled up.

My resto thread has some pics of the tower I am installing this winter on a similar x30. Bimini is a zip on, not a roll up, but its big.

So I have decided on going with the Monster MTX. Price is decent and I like the looks. Prob go with the bimini Monster offers too. Not too keen on installing it myself, so I'm looking for someone in the Columbus, OH area that does good work. I'm also looking speakers and wake and surf board racks, preferably a swiveling type.

And recommendations would be appreciated.

Whoever you choose to do the installation make sure they're installing backing plates. You'll need either some aluminum or stainless steel plates cut to fit under the mounting locations then have them either bonded or glassed under the mounting location. In metro Detroit I'd recommend Fred's Custom Boats first then Glass Masters if you decide to do a road trip.

Since you're primarily surfing and hanging out these days I'd consider Exile's Surf Tower Speakers. They don't project like the wake version but if you're doing more surfing and hanging they'll probably fit the bill better.

If you're going to do tower speakers you're going to need an amp too. Wet Sounds has a killer closeout deal on 4 channel amps. I almost bought one on principle alone before other priorities came along.

For $229 you can't beat the quality and price.

If you want to control the tower speakers separately you're going to need a remote fader for the tower speakers. Exile makes this one.....

PAC Audio makes this one.....

While you're at it you may want to consider adding Blue Tooth to your system. Wet Sounds makes this one.....

And Exile makes this one....

Of course all this will need to be installed and finding a shop to do quality marine stereo installation can be challenging. Most times you're best off doing it yourself or finding someone that has those skills that works for beer and such.......
