Tower Options for New 2016

I'm looking into a 2016 now and wanted to get peoples' thoughts on the different tower options for 2016.

I do a mix of wakeboarding and surfing and have the wake/wake tower racks currently. I typically just leave my surfboards on the floor or in the bow, but would like to have them in the racks, so I'm thinking wake/surf racks this time. Thoughts?

I'm also wondering if anyone has heard the new 8.8 tower speakers and if they are worth the premium over the 7.7s. I've seen a few boats coming with a pair of 8.8s on the outside and 7.7s on the inside. Thoughts?

The surf/surf option is what I have which means that you get a large "surf" slot at the bottom and a thinner "wake board" slot at the top of each side.

If you get the Surf and Convenience package you get the Bimini surf sleeves which holds four boards. The Surf/Surf racks are nice but they come at a premium.

I ordered my boat with 2 - 7.7s as the 880s weren't out yet and just added the 880s a month ago. I ended up moving the 7.7s to the inside and putting the 880s to the outside. I also took the M200/2 out that powered the 2 original tower speakers and installed a MHD600/4 and they work very well now. I know four fourty put 4 - 880s on his X23 with a larger amp then mine and he was very impressed

I have the wake/surf racks and actually don't seem to use them! The racks do come at a price, like wallnut21 said I would get the surf bimini before spending the money on the racks because if my wakeboards are on the top racks they hit my JL Cans while swiveling.

Surf sleeves are awesome. I use them for both surfboards and a kneeboard.

Did you get an aftermarket bimini with surf sleeves, have the sleeve sewn in after the fact, or something else? I need more board space!

Mastercraft ones. Bought at boat show last year. It holds up to 4 surfboards. The pockets are large enough for a kneeboard. I don't have to take it off either. The Bimini cover will fit with it still attached.

They attach with straps to the factory Bimini. Not part of the Bimini. Think it cost around 350.

Surf Bimini is a must. It's an awesome option. I love mine and I'm able to add a lot of things up there.

I think the wetsounds route is cheaper as 4 wetsounds rev8s with an amp are the same cost as one set of the stock JL cans

I went wet sounds 4 rev 8 and sinister series amp since they were cheaper. Was told that 4 rev 10s won't fit, could've gone with 2 rev10s though.
