Marine Vs Car Audio

Marine AudioEnjoy The Water

2012 offers an abundance of new audio equipment for your aquatic satisfaction.  It’s not quite summer, but now is the perfect time to start thinking of upgrading your watercraft’s audio components!  Marine audio can be installed on the likes of boats, sea-doos, jet skis, motorcycles, ATV’s, ect.  As opposed to car audio, marine audio is usually more durable and weather proof to allow for excessive wear and tear.  Getting the gear you need now will ensure an audio-inducing summer.

                                              The Difference

5-Channel ZXM Series Marine Amplifier

Marine audio differentiates from car audio in a few major ways. Marine amplifiers and subwoofers are water resistant due to their increased exposure to salt or fresh water. They have special manufacturing designs such as watertight seals, coated circuit boards, and waterproof wired remote controllers. Another thing to take into consideration is sunlight exposure.  Usually, audio components are going to be exposed to long hours in the summer sun.  To compensate for this, manufacturers will coat parts with ultraviolet resistant materials.

When your audio components are wet or dampened, they are susceptible to corrosion.  Marine speaker wire is designed to reduce the risk of corrosion with stranded copper wire.  This wire also makes it flexible which is great for absorbing shock damage caused by the movement of the harsh marine environment. Due to the openness of a marine environment, marine speakers will always have hard dome tweeters to create the loudest sound projection obtainable. Marine head units will have rubberized buttons and splash guards to protect the internal parts from being wet. Today, there are an abundance of manufacturers who offer multiple lines of marine audio products to fit your specific needs.


We have a huge selection,  check it out!:

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.
