Rock Your Boat with the Bazooka Ski-Trac System

Bazooka Ski Trac

By Samantha R. – Product Specialist

Introduced as “SAS” in 1983 and being selected as “one of the most innovative consumer electronic products,” Bazooka has been known for their unique, space saving “tube” style speakers and subwoofers that cease to amaze! Selling in over 47 countries to this day, Bazooka is expected to continue to grow dramatically even within foreign countries.

While being one of the biggest authorized dealers in the United States, Bazooka has introduced an incredible new design that will literally take your ears on a ride. Featuring 360 degrees of sound tracking, stainless steel tower mount and track bar, the newly introduced Ski-Trac from Bazooka has officially taken off. Close up shop and pack up the boat! With this design of riding entertainment you can be wakeboarding, tubing, skiing, or riding an airchair while the Ski-Trac provides the entire boat and you with all-around audio entertainment. The Bazooka Ski-Trac system mounts to your wakeboard tower and fully delivers audio and tracks wherever you go. Catch a wake, it follows. 360 the boat, it follows. Whatever you do, no matter what angle you choose, this system automatically intensifies your riding experience keeping all speakers on you. While keeping some entertainment on the boat, the track bar rotates and completely spins around to follow the rider in the water. Equipped with nylon bushings for a smooth ride and an oversized rope guide, this unit has been waiting to be discovered.

Save some money and purchase the full Bazooka MT-ST-K6CHB bundle which includes the Compression Horn Tubbies MT6502CHB. Sold separately, the next addition would be a marine certified camera and some bright lights to make your ride that much more extreme. Allowing you to record your sweet tricks and insane bailouts, this could be a considerable advancement to anyone’s boat. In some states, night water skiing is very popular such as the Louisiana Night Jam. Join the trend and strap on some tower lights to your Ski-Trac unit and you’ll be set for an exciting cruise after-dark. Now you may be thinking, “Well what about wires?” Bazooka is thinking ahead and has incorporated a wire swivel for all electrical and low voltage connections. This incredible feature eliminates tangles and avoids wires getting caught and damaged so you can still enjoy your ride without worrying about the amount of tension.

No matter how far our technology has gone to this day, who would have thought our music could literally follow our every move.


Bazooka BT Series Bass Tubes

Bazooka BTA10100

By David D. – Product Specialist

Bazooka has been one of the top manufacturers of Bass Tubes for many years now. Bass Tubes are perfect for people who want to upgrade their audio system with some bass, but don’t want to have a big bulky subwoofer box taking up space. Bazooka Bass Tubes fit in any vehicle from a Mini Cooper to a Full Size Truck and can be mounted virtually anywhere.

Bazooka produces Amplified Bass Tubes which come equipped with a built-in Class D amplifier that includes an adjustable low-pass filter. The amplified bass tubes are available from 100 watts to 250 watts and produce clean, monstrous bass. Bazooka also makes Passive bass tubes available in 4 or 8 ohm impedances. These are non-amplified so you can hook your own amplifier up to them.  Each bass tube (Amplified and Passive) are supplied with a poly subwoofer made specifically for Bazooka bass tube enclosures, plastic woofer grille that is decorative and protective, a light-weight high excursion foam edge roll to maximize bass output, acoustic damping fiber, nickel-plated thumb screw terminals, all of which is enclosed in a ported tube.

Both the amplified and passive bass tubes above are part of the BT Series from Bazooka. While being the most popular, the BT series features a sleek design with a scratch resistant jet-black paint finish and are available in amplified and non-amplified (Passive). Each BT series bass tube is ported to allow adequate transfer of the bass.

I have had the pleasure of owning the Bazooka BTA10100 amplified bass tube. This tube enclosure really surprised me, I was used to most bass tubes sounding cheap with a lot of distortion, but this tube couldn’t be further from that. The BTA10100 is equipped with a 10” dual voice coil subwoofer and is powered by a 100 watt 2-channel class D amplifier. It produced a clean sound and thumped pretty hard for only being 100 watts. This bass tube enclosure features an RCA input, Hi level input, auto turn on, and a built-in crossover that eliminates the high frequencies the woofer cannot play.

If you are looking to add bass with very little space, Bazooka has just what you are looking for!


Bazooka Bass Tubes

It all started back in November of 1983 when Southern Audio Services opened for business. Now with over 25 years of experience, SAS Bazooka has grown to be one of the most respected and innovative companies in the mobile audio industry today. Among the most impressive developments and products that have come out of the Bazooka labs are the Bass Tubes. A bass boost is one of the best and noticeable improvements that one could add to their car and Bazooka bass tubes have made the addition of a subwoofer simple and easy.

The tube subwoofers can easily be integrated into a factory sound system by connecting just a few wires. All of the Bass Tube subs come with the necessary wires and harnesses to hook up one of these subs. Plug one end into the back of the bass tube and the other end of the harness connects the power, ground, and remote. Then connect the RCA interconnect cables from the bass tube to the back of the head unit and you are set. Well, most of the time. Depending on which Bass Tube you get there might be more installation, but the installation is still basic. With the remote cable connected, the amplified bass tubes will turn on when you start the car. If you have already replaced your factory sound system, then installation is just as simple. Factory or not, installing one of these tube subwoofers is straightforward. Instructions are included and most tubes will include straps to hold the tube in place.

Even though the Bazooka Bass Tube subwoofers and amplifiers handle a relatively small amount of power, the sound they produce is quite impressive. I guess that’s what happens when you have been in the industry for as long as Bazooka has. They have mastered the tube design and live up to their claim of, “Big bass in a small space!” If you have ever been in a car with one of these subs, then you will understand the difference that it can make.
