Mono marine subwoofer amplifier — 600 watts RMS x 1 at 2 ohms
Our take on the Bazooka MA1600D by Crutchfield's Jon Paulette
Add some bass to your boat
Bazooka's MA1600D marine subwoofer amp packs a lot of punch into a compact chassis. With its Class D design, this powerful Bazooka is engineered to meet tough marine-grade protection standards, so you won't have to worry about salt and spray causing damage while you're blasting around on the lake or cruising on the open water.
This sleek marine amp offers a very low profile for easy installation.
Power and versatility
This mono amp is great for bumping up the bass on your pleasure craft — it's perfect for driving a pair of 4-ohm subs. You can run the built-in variable low-pass filters anywhere between 50 to 500 Hz, so you can get maximum performance out of your subwoofer setup. A subsonic filter removes extreme low frequencies so your amp and sub will no longer have to strain to reproduce them. This Bazooka amp includes a wired bass control remote that lets you adjust the amp's level from the helm, while the preamp outputs make it easier to get signal to another amplifier in your system.
Bazooka's designers know what boaters want from an amplifier, so they designed this amp to be compact, cool, efficient, and powerful. You can mount the MA1600D in a storage locker, console, or other tight spot without sacrificing space you'd rather use for extra lines, life jackets, and other boating gear.

Overview: The Bazooka MA1600D is a mono Class D marine amplifier for driving subwoofers. It comes with a Remote Bass Controller to let you adjust the volume from the driver's seat or from the cabin of your vessel. Also included are mounting brackets and stainless steel hardware.
Power Output: The MA1600D has the following power output specifications:
- 320 watts RMS x 1 channel at 4 ohms
- 600 watts RMS x 1 channel at 2 ohms
Controls: The MA1600D's controls are conveniently located on one side for easy access. The controls include:
- Input Level: The rotary Input Level control lets you match the amplifier with the strength of the input signal from the source unit. The range is 0.2V to 6.0V. The control can be adjusted by hand, or with a small screwdriver (not included).
- Crossover: The built-in low-pass crossover is adjustable from 30Hz to 1000Hz. The frequency knob can be adjusted by hand or with a small screwdriver. The crossover is non-defeatable.
- Subsonic Filter: A subsonic filter cuts out super low frequencies that cannot be cleanly reproduced by a speaker. The subsonic filter's rotary control is variable from 10Hz to 45Hz.
- Phase Control: The rotary phase control lets you select normal phase (0°) or reverse phase (180°).
- Bass Boost: The amplifier features a bass boost, adjustable via rotary control from 0 to 18dB. No center frequency is provided.
Remote Bass Control: The amp has an RJ25 jack for connecting the supplied Remote Bass Control. The gain of the amplifier can be adjusted remotely from 0.2V to 6V using the remote knob. The Remote Bass Control module can be installed in the driver's seat of your vehicle, or at the helm or in the cabin of your vessel. The attached cable is 12.5 feet in length.
Connections: The power and speaker connections feature set screw terminals. The power, ground, turn-on (remote), and speaker terminals will each accept up to 8 AWG wire. All of the set screw terminals can be tightened/loosened with a flat head or Phillips head screwdriver (not supplied). A 40A fuse should be installed on the power wire with 18" of the battery. A pair of RCA jacks is provided for connecting the input signal cable from the source unit. In addition, a speaker-level input harness is included, which plugs into the side of the amp via a Molex plug. Two speaker outputs from the source unit should be spliced into the harness.
- Frequency Response: 20Hz - 20kHz
- Total Harmonic Distortion: 0.1%
- Signal-to-Noise Ratio: 90dB
- Channel Separation: 55dB
