This looks pretty cool:


"The Ski-Trac track bar is a Stainless Steel bar that replaces the rope spindle/pylon on any tower and through using a rope guide will precisely TRACK the rider everywhere they go…thereby allowing whatever is mounted to the bar (speakers, lights, video camera) to always be ON AXIS with the rider for their entire run. Even if they 360 the boat the Ski-Trac bar will track them. The Ski-Trac bar also incorporates a wire swivel for all of the electrical and low voltage connections which prevents the wires from getting all twisted up as the track bar rotates and spins around to follow the rider. Speakers, Lights, Cameras and all other applicable accessories sold seperately."

that's pretty neat............wonder what keeps it from just bouncing around when you're just riding?

I could see it for a camera but hell just amp up the power for music.

Ummm....Maybe not your cup of tea but I think it is a good and simple idea. Sorry I brought it to your attention.

Gamble....It supposedly has a lock down for trailering and cruising. A buddy of mine saw it and he likes the fact it will also turn 360 degrees so if you pull up to a group (i.e. a beach), you can rotate the speakers towards the party.

I also like the idea of the camera for tracking.

Time will tell.

I think there is another company that makes a tracking devise for a camera. (not sure of the name)

I don't think Bazooka makes the best tower speakers, but Wetsounds and NVS speakers are plenty loud enough that they don't need to be rotated for the rider. Plus wouldn't the speakers "bounce" around alot on the mount? Looks a bit weak to me. Just my opinion though, no first hand knowledge.

It is as important as listening to Rip-Rap-@ss-slap music while you ski. What is wrong with you? Haven't I seen you somewhere before now?
