Conclusion: If your looking to add that missing thumping feeling at the bottom end of your current wimpy sound system, then this is it! The Bazooka MBT1014 and the rest of the Bazooka tubes series are all made out of a strong, waterproof and great sounding poly based body. Other subwoofer enclosures are just cheap carpet wrapped particle board. Particle board on a boat has no business being on board.
Conclusion: This product is well designed and does a great job. I am highly impressed with the quality and the impact it made to my system. It's a great value considering the quality and price for performance.
Adequate bass when space is at a premium and you don't need a huge amp

Summary: I had one of these back in the mid-1990's in my 1981 Chevrolet Citation hatchback that would just about blow your ear drums out. Now with the new one in my 2001 Dodge Ram quad cab the sound is very good, but it's pretty tame. I know that the shape of the interior and placement of the tube can greatly affect the sound, and I don't remember the size of the amp that I was using back in the day so I could be comparing apples to oranges.

Conclusion: I purchased this as a replacement for a traditional sealed box with a 10" sub that I am using on my pontoon boat. The Bazooka fit exactly where I wanted it to go and it sounds so much better that my old sub. The output level works well with the 6.5" Alpine 2 ways and 4 channel Alpine amp it is paired with. The overall quality and build construction meets my expectations. So far, I have no complaints.
Summary: Fits in the trunk of my 2007 Honda Civic Coupe much better than the ported enclosure I also bought. While not for folks wanting to simulate earthquakes inside their car, if you experiment with placement before you bolt this sub down, I think you'll be pleased. I have an inexpensive Rockford Fosgate 2-channel 100 watt amp bridged just for this puppy and it brings up the bottom end nicely.
