Conclusion: Came damaged. There was a short and it took the technician a half hour to locate it, remove the wrap and repair it. Sonic Electronix refused to compensate for the damage. It would have made no sense to send the product back as I was paying by the hour to have it installed. That said, so far it has been a good subwoofer. My last one, another ten inch amplified Bazooka tube, lasted 24 years and four cars before giving out. Love the bass.
Summary: Well, sofar, I'm surprized. I wasn't looking for something too powerful. Didn't want people down the street hearing me. I just wanted a more 'full' sound in the cab. The Bazooka BTA10100FHC did just that. Hooking it up was dead simple. However, I was a bit skeptical about the supplied harness. I felt the power wires were too small. But, it sounds good. Better than I thought it would. And its mostly out of the way in the trunk.
Summary: Fit perfectly in my truck and the sound was amazing. It is perfect for my needs. This tube does what you need when space is something of value to you. I had little space and it was just what I needed. In my opinion it is very reliable and it is very well built, it is sturdy and solid.
Summary: Had to return it as the adapter I ordered was supposed to be specific to my car. It did not work with my 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage. Using the standard adapter required splicing wires, which I could not do. Had to return product. Amazon was great about the return.
Summary: Sounded great at first but the back side where the amp is gets really hot and then starts making a piping sound in the sub and is making the wiring hot if I could send it back and get my money back I would very unhappy!!!!!
Conclusion: You cant beat the sound that comes out of this amazing little tube. For the money its probably the best sounding woofer out there. It fits well behind the seat in my F-150 and was very easy to install. Finally the product came very fast within 2 to 3 days. I would buy from this company again in the future...
