Our take on the Bazooka Tubbie

by Leigh Schoettinger
Bazooka

Bazooka offers a way to make wakeboarding even more fun and extreme. Outfit your boat with a Tubbie wakeboard tower speaker system, and you can rock to the waves and to your favorite tunes.

The MT-8252 Tubbie system utilizes four drivers to deliver your music loud and clear while standing up to the marine environment. Each Tubbie speaker pod holds an 8" woofer and a 1" tweeter facing one direction, plus a 5-1/4" midrange and 3/4" tweeter facing the opposite direction. Bazooka houses the speakers in a ported enclosure that improves efficiency. The result? These speakers crank — just what you need to drown out the noise of revving motors and crashing waves.

Bazooka builds Tubbies for life on the water. The water-resistant woofers and tweeters can handle occasional splashing, and the durable rubber surrounds won't fall apart, even after extended exposure to the sun. Bazooka finishes off the Tubbies with stylish, UV-resistant grilles and stainless steel hardware.

Each Tubbie enclosure features a stainless steel mounting plate, which attaches to your wakeboard tower or other suitable rails with optional universal aluminum mounting clamps.

Features

Product Overview: The Bazooka MT8252WS contains a pair of 4-way "Tubbie" wakeboard tower speakers. The speakers are designed to be mounted to the wakeboard tower tubing using optional stainless steel mounting brackets.

Drivers: Each speaker is equipped with an 8" emerald-injected mica-poly woofer and a 1" aluminum dome tweeter facing in one direction, plus a 5-1/4" midrange and a 3/4" tweeter facing the opposite direction. All of the drivers have long-lasting rubber surrounds. The grilles are made of high-impact plastic.

Enclosure: Each speaker features a tuned, ported speaker cabinet with a high-gloss white finish to compliment any marine decor. The ring around the front of the enclosure is made of durable rubber. The enclosure features the classic look of a Bazooka ported bass tube.

Speaker Terminals: The rear-mounted platinum-plated 4-way binding post speaker terminals can accommodate bare wire, pin connectors, spade connectors, or single banana plugs. The terminals are spaced too far apart to accommodate dual banana plugs.

Mounting Bracket: The speaker's top mounted stainless steel mounting plate accommodates one of the wakeboard tubing mounting brackets (204MTCL25S or 204MTCLMAL, sold separately). The mounting hardware is polished to a mirror finish, then coated with a marine-grade plating for protection against the harsh salt water environment. The bracket can be rotated and set to any of 9 positions, allowing you to aim the speaker at the optimum angle toward the listening area. The bracket attaches to the speaker cabinet with a 10mm diameter countersunk bolt (supplied with the optional mounting bracket). Note: The mounting brackets add approximately 3-1/8" to the speaker's overall height.

Great Sound

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Speakers are great. Had a problem with the bolts on the tower brackets but Crutchfield took care of that quickly. Hooked these up to the marine Clarion MPX280M amp and it is awsome to say the least. Teck service was great in their suggestions. Would rather purchase from these guys that locally.
