    anyone done this? I can handle the radio and amp wiring just not sure the best way to run the wires down the tower? Drill holes where I mount and fish wire through? Sounds too simple to be true. Noticed here is already a wire port in the tower fold opposite of nav light wire.

    @oupatton after you fold down your tower you will see the Nav wire on the starboard side going into the tower. I went in this way because my amp board is mounted in the storage area behind the steering wheel so less wire to run. If your speaker wire is not wrapped with a pvc sleeve you will be able to push all 4 wires up from the bottom of the tower with ease. I used either 14 awg or 12 I don't remember but they are pretty stiff being marine grade so I didn't need the fish tape. Mark your locations on the tower first then pre drill a pilot hole, i started with a 1/4" bit and then switched over to a step bit to finish with a 3/4" hole. Let me know if you have any questions with wiring to your amps so you can get the best power out of them. Good luck and take pictures.

    I have this package on my 2017 AR195 with the stock deck. I love the tower speakers and will likely add another amp and upgrade the 4 cabin speakers. https://www.exileaudio.com/store/toweraudio/xm9-wake-package-1.html
