Summary: I needed a little more low end bass for my boat which came factory with 4 Clarion 6.5". This 10" Bazooka tube really took me by surprise and completely surpassed my expectation. It is super easy to install.
Summary: Completely overhauled the sound system in my Mitsubishi Montero. Installed an Alpine 5 channel Amp, Kenwood Navigation system, Rockford Fosgate component speakers in all four doors, eight inch RF Sub-woofer in place of factory sub and better gauge wiring to all points.
Pros: Great sound at a low price. Make a good sounding system with the power sound great.
Cons: You will have to deal with finding it a good location because it does take some space, but the sound it produces for the price makes it all worth it.
Summary: Simply amazing bass at a great price. I put this in my 24' open bow boat in the hull out of site. The bass is incredible. I also used bass blockers on the existing 6 1/2' speakers so they can play louder.
Pros: Amazing bass in a nice enclosure that easy to hide
Cons: Mounting straps are a little weak for a boat application due to waves pounding boat.
Conclusion: I own another model of this product and have it placed in my truck, this is what led me to purchase this item when adding a system to my boat. Bazooka makes it easy and simple to add an effective bass system to any mobile sound system not to mention simplifying installation and eliminating vehicle...
Conclusion: Honestly not what I expected to hear from these tubes. Very boomy due to thickness (or lack there of) of the tube itself. I put 1000 RMS PLUS to a pair of these and I dont think it hit 130db. Two 10" pioneer cheapys in a small 1.2 cu custom box hits disproportionately harder and just as deep.
Conclusion: I can not speak of how this sounds with an separate amp. I have this BT1014 powered by my 10" Amplified Bazooka BTA10250D which has a speaker level output designed for the BT1014. No joke it more than doubles the Bass.
