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.
Conclusion: great for the price,i run a 5channel amp wt tweeters wt mid range speakers front & back & the tube in the back.i know its not the loudest but its great for rounding out a system.very nice product

Conclusion: Very good product and very happy with my selection. Sonic has great prices and service. Bought my Bazooka one month ago, for that reason my durability rating is average. Otherwise is a no brainer!
