    Default V2 Tower light and speaker options?

    So this question may have already been answered but, I have a 2011 Mobius LSV with the V2 Tower. I am looking to put tower speakers and lights on the tower. I want to use the install locations on the inside of the tower that are on the side. there are two spots on each side. I had an idea that I want x9's up top of each side and lights on the lower mounts. I am 6'1 and already have to duck under the tower so I dont want anything on the crossbar. My question is, are there any custom mount lights that will mount to the V2 tower mounts that have forward and backward facing lights on each side. If not, is there any blueprints for machine shops that will enable me to do this with a custom install?

    Tyler,
    This info, although you may already be aware of this, might make your project easier. Front-facing halogen/led lamps are not nearly as effective as rear-facing lamps. The brighter the front lights, the more glare you get reflected off the bow (especially if the boat is squatted), and the more blinded you become. I prefer conventional docking lights at the bow and specifically under the deck cap if approaching the trailer. Or, you can add a couple of simple runway lights to the trailer.
    Also, in consideration of the rear cockpit occupants, I would locate lamps at the highest point or to the outside of the tower. Just a few general thoughts before completely understanding your intentions.

    Here are my four xm9's on a v2 tower

    Unfortunately when moomba redid the bu tower to the v2 they eliminated the pre fab light plugs. So it would have to be custom drilled to get the rear facing lights

    this is what i found bakesonline could be a great resource since they dealt with malibu for years

    This is probably the cheapest light you can find for the V2 tower.

    They also come in an LED version. But as with anything, you get what you pay for. We were going to mount four of these on my neighbor's Illusion tower, but we didn't. The surface, where the stock holes were, was not flat; thus the mounting brackets did not sit flat. Being that there are no factory holes on your tower, you could find a flat spot which would make a better mounting location. There is a boss machined into the bottom of the bracket that is supposed to line up with the factory hole in the Illusion tower. That boss would have to be ground flat. A simple self tapping screw mounts the bracket to the tower.

    Wetsounds has a small LED bullet-style lamp. You can install nutserts nearly anywhere you want on that tower, which is the same hardware provided for speaker mounting.

    Joe,
    It's not on our site just yet but you can see the item on the Wetsounds site. It's a BPOD micro sized LED lamp.

    Thanks David. Looks great, the wiring harness makes it pretty simple as well. Are the nutserts part of the hardware included.
