Bass makes up about 30% of your music, and it gives music its power and impact. A good subwoofer can make an average car audio system sound good, and a good car audio system sound great. Good bass is all about moving air, and a cylindrical tube translates the motion of its woofer into maximum air pressure so you hear and feel more bass. Bazooka designed the Bass Tube to act like a bass cannon, firing low frequencies throughout your vehicle.
The BT6024DVC Bass Tube features a 6-1/2" polypropylene woofer with a twin-layer compressed foam surround for smooth excursion. The dual 4-ohm voice coils promote high power handling, and each voice coil has its own set of input terminals to give you maximum hook-up flexibility. The tube design eliminates standing bass waves for accurate response and high efficiency. Find a good spot for a Bazooka Bass Tube in your vehicle and you'll still enjoy plenty of cargo room.
A compact Bass Tubes enclosure will fit in almost any vehicle, and you can disconnect it in a snap if you need more cargo space. Since the tube's speaker and port are right next to each other, you can get amazing results by "corner loading" your tube — placing it in a corner of your trunk or cargo area so your vehicle's boundaries act as a natural amplifier, boosting bass production.

An enclosed subwoofer is a box with a subwoofer already installed. The advantage to buying an enclosed sub is that the manufacturer made the sub, then designed and built the box as a perfect match, so you'll get the best possible performance. Every enclosed sub has a maximum RMS power handling rating, so pair it with an amp with a similar RMS power rating to get the best performance.
Pros: Fast shipping
The best improvement to my boats sound system. Richness in sound quality is unsurpassed
Pros: Ease of installation, size and weight
Cons: Better detailed explanation of set up for DIY installers who are first time users
Updated to reflect new information. Turns out, my sound issues were self inflicted!! RCA cables,ms peaked wires and power cable were too close together. Local shop redid my wiring, and re routed things. Now, I have no problems, get a good clean, decent Thump, from the sub!! Crutchfield team has been great, in helping me try to solve the problem!! Even as my frustration levels showed!! Many Thanks to them!
Pros: Good, clean bass Easy install, except terminal screws! Wonderful sound, under all types of music!
Cons: Terminal knobs for wires hard time turning by hand. Had to use needle nose pliers to tighten. 5 star, if not for this issue.
Worked great the day it was installed. Next day, it started making popping/cracking sounds, regardless of stereo volume. Next thing I know, is ALL speakers in my truck were blasting static. Radio volume control had no affect. Had to turn off radio. Not sure if sub, amplifier or radio failed in a 2 day time frame! Worked perfectly before though.
Pros: Relatively easy to install. Decent sound.
Cons: No wiring diagram for the 4 terminal version. Hard to turn knobs when connecting wires. Had to use needle nose pliers to get good, tight connections. Can't use spade wire terminals to connect. Largest ones I found, don't fit!Crutchfield response on April 28, 2015 This customer contacted our Technical Support team for assistance. Lifetime tech support comes with every Crutchfield purchase.
Not my first SAS Bazooka. Well built casing. Great sound IF YOU PLACE IT AS THE DIRECTIONS DICTATE! I have never been let down with a SAS Bazooka tube of any size. Be sure to talk to Crutchfield to find out the one for you. The amplified ones I have had last forever. I'm sure this one will too. Let crutchfield pick it for you.
Pros: Well built. Sounds great. Affordable. Nice looking. Space saver. By a company that's established. Backs up there products. Worth every hard earned penny.
Cons: MUST BE PLACED AS THE DIRECTIONS DICTATE!
What I was hopeing for was punchy bass down to at least 35hz. Output is much much lower than one would expect with how its marketed and, there is no punch really. 250w was being sent to this at 2ohms. I could barely hear it. Just low quality over all. I would recomend this only if nothing else fits. But with all of the low profile subwoofers avalible today one could install a low profile 10 in less space than this bazooka tube. Quality door speakers and 6x9s would also over power this little tube. The wire terminals are also a reall pain to use (literally) with the way they are shaped and, the low clearance they should come with a special tool to turn them. This tube in no way sounds like 2 10s as other reviewers have said. Not even equal to 1 10. Maybe 4 of these would equal 1 10
Pros: Its light weight, durable, may be able to fit in locations other subs may not.
Cons: output from one of these is not enough unless one has a stock low power head unit with stock speakers. Wire terminals are a literal pain to use. low quality in every aspect. This isn't the 80's anymore the current low profile subwoofers in a custom box can be much smaller than even this 6 inch bazooka tube and out perform it.
These are the second set we have had. The last one (single) gave up after about three years. This time we installed two and wired them in series for each enclosure and them both enclosures in parallel giving us a 4 ohm load on a single 150 W amp. To get that much base in a crew cab truck under the seats is incredible.
Pros: Moves a lot of air for a small woofer and frites in small places
Cons: Seams to have a three year life, the cone just gives out. Have to admit, we drive it very hard.
Perfect size for under the back seat, can't beat the price and the sound quality is fantastic!
Pros: size, sound, and style
Cons: nothing that I can think of.
Actually, I ordered the 6", then decided to have them switch it for the 8", but it still showed as a 6" on my order so the review is here. Can't believe the sound and thump this bad boy puts out! running it off an amp and have it facing the rear corner under the seat in my crew cab Titan (fits just right). I can hear it, I can feel it. Clean and loud!!
Pros: This thing Rocks the low end. Amazing for 1- 8" sub.
I first starting admiring Bazooka Tubes over 20 years ago. I had 2 passive 8" Bazooka Tubes and they were solid, loud, and clean. I have since used a couple others Bazooka Tubes in other cars to fill in some missing bass from the factory set up. I recently purchased an old truck, and I decided I wanted to upgrade the 19 yr old system it in. I purchased some Infiniti Kappas for the mids and highs. An Alpine head unit with a Power Pak took care of those. The bass was lacking, and I really didn't want to sacrifice any space in the single cab truck with a big box. I went back to Bazooka, and purchased this little 6" passive unit. I wanted the DVC in order to be able to go to 2 Ohms on my amp. This is just what I needed. It is clean, crisp, and not overwhelming. My other ride has a system that has shaken loose every nut and bolt in the car. I didn't want that in my truck. I wanted exactly what I got with this purchase a quality, well rounded sound. Do not buy this to shake the neighbors windows. Do not buy this to win over the guy next to you a a light. Buy this to add clean bass to your system without sacrificing space.
Pros: Small, adequate bass, easy to hook up, several options when using an amp.
Was skeptical because of shape, but liked the size of the sub, typically the smaller the clearer the sound and less muddy. I have a 92 ford f150, standard cab. I need the seat scooted all the way back to be comfortable, I ripped out my 2 "12 jbls because they took way too much room. Kept my Rockford fosgate amp, hooked it up and it sounds awesome, totally clear and powerful!
I never expected such bass from this thing. everyone kept saying these don't sound all that great. what!? I have it in a small extended cap pickup powered by a 300w amp and this thing hits pretty darn good for a small sub. you can't hear it 20' away or anything like that but stick your head inside and on some songs it can take take your breath away from the sound pressure. maybe I have a good amp that can produce the lows everyone else seem to say this lacks. I don't know, but I'm extremely happy with this thing. everyone I let hear it is pretty impressed as well. a few of them are planning on getting one now.
Pros: seems to hit the lows just fine with a good amp small and lightweight.
Cons: a little hard to get my fingers on the terminals to turn them. and I wish it had the same band round the back like the front has so it looks like it wasn't lost.
It was very easy to connect to my factory radio and the bass it produces is out of this world. I was very surprised with what it produces for only being a 6" subwoofer with enclosure. I would venture to say that it sounds way better than what I use to have with 2 10" kickers.
Can not believe the sound this 6.5 puts out it is awesome it filled that hole in my music
Pros: great bass for the price
This little guy surprised me quite a bit....I am not a bass head by any means, but I love to be able to hear the "full range" of sound...this sub picks up where the door speakers leave off...it fills in the low frequencies nicely and blends well with my Polk door speakers....it won't shake the neighborhood by any means but for such a small sub it goes a great job...it responds well to even the lowest notes of whatever I'm listening too...great add on to my system
Pros: Responds well to low frequencies (below 50 hz)...low price, small size and great build quality
Cons: None yet
Been looking for much needed help on my Wrangler system and this tube fit the bill. Hooked it up to an old amp I had, tied it on one side of the bed and it sounded great! Think I made the right choice after checking out other options! Thanks, Crutchfield!
Pros: Great sound and out of the way !
Andy gave great advice for the match It sounds really great Thanks
These Bass Bazookas are awesome! I've had one in my other vehicle, 1992 ford ranger for 8 years. Very pleased and can't beat the price!
Pros: Awesome design and sound! Never a doubt when I ordered this piece!
Cons: There are 4 speaker wire connections on this tube due to the dual voice coils. The outer connections are a little tough to deal with. Definitely need to be patient while connecting speaker wire inputs.
I have a Toyota Tacoma standard cab, so size of the enclosure was a real issue. I have a Kenwood amp and a Sony receiver. I was completely blown away by the performance of the bazooka. I use the hpf and lpf in the Sony and none of the filters on the amp. It is a smooth, rich sound with no distortion. I have decided to order a second one I am so impressed. I have been a Cruthcfield customer since its inception. You will find no better customer service and available when it is convienent for you. Thanks Crutchfield.
Pros: Hard hitting, clean sound, and a quality component at a fair price.
Cons: Binding posts for connection are a tight fit and somewhat difficult to use. But once you're connected, you're done.
The Bazooka gets the job done in my 96 standard cab F-250 4x4,fits great behind the seat and gives a nice tight bass fill to my system, I'm running 200 watts to the Bazooka and 150 watts x 4 to my 6 1/2 in. components and it's a real nice mix (just the right bump).
Pros: Fits nice behind the seat, great bass for the size, fair price.
Cons: None so far.
I don't mean to sound disgruntled but I am upset. I thought with the sensitivity of this bass tube it would accent my car stereo with the power of my head unit. Wrong... Yes I tried reversing my wiring. I connected this to my home stereo and cranked it up with it's RMS maximum and it still did not put out nearly the bass I expected. So I bought a stereo amp for my car to push it as hard as it could handle and it still was not pushing hard enough to be audible over my front speakers. I could hear it but once the car started rolling I could barely notice it.
Please note: I am NOT a bass head. I wanted to "warm" up the sound with a simple sub. This was not even close to filling that bill. Which is really disappointing. I loved the design of this and loved the small space requirements... Oh well... I am eating the cost on this thing.
My recommendation, try to audition this first. Make sure not to take your time installing it, so if you don't like it you can still return it. My mistake that I held on to it a month before even trying to install it.
Pros: Price; Size; DVC
Cons: Weak; Horrible sound quality
I've had a 75w amp that's been sitting idle for a while and I decided to buy a Bazooka to hook to it. I put them in my Silverado extended cab (bass tube under back seat, amp just behind on ledge). The fit is great and the Bazooka is rugged and should hold up to our kids knocking around. I have a Pioneer stereo with high and low pass filters and the extra bass from the Bazooka paired with cutting back on bass to Infinity 2ways in the doors sounds just right. Thanks to Crutchfield for continued great service
I recently had a 10" Pioneer subwoofer speaker in my Jeep Liberty. The sound was great but took up a lot of space. I saw the Bazooka Tube and it's mounting capabitlities it's what caught my eye. I read all the reviews about how the sound was great, but not that loud bass where people hear you coming a mile away. I was able to mount the Bazooka Tube in my cargo area on the wall of the drivers side. It gave me my cargo space back and the sound is awesome. Even for Techno songs it sounded great no distortion that some speakers do. I had this Bazooka Tube so far for a week in my Jeep and loving it. Thanks Bazooka for a great product and to Crutchfield for there great service.
This thing hits hard, you would think you have 2 10's or a 12
great sub if your looking to save space, was very surprised with the output of
this small speaker.
I have had a bunch of bazooka tubes over the last 20 years. I have a 2010 f250 crew cab.
Not much room behind the rear seat, did not want to remove the fabric and insulation on
the back wall for a box. This subwoofer fit just perfect behind the seat and produces
really nice bass for the size. It will go head to head with a ten in a box.
The first one I got from the outlet was blown but crutchfield sent me a new one
immediately without waiting on the return. Great customer service. It has nice deep bass
and I plan on adding another on the other side to replace the stock box and 8inch
subwoofer. Running it off an almpine mp500 amp.
First i noticed that I made a mistake of ordering this one because I thought this is one of those powered sub like the first one I bought. Anyway Idecided to give it a try to connect this directly to my HU. I am very much satisfied with the out come. I added the base I was looking for with out installing an amp due to limited space in my car. I was wondering how much of a difference is the powered one.
I bought one of these for my new Chevy extended cab pickup. This little sub added just the right amount of bass that I wanted to my truck. I hated how all the sub boxes looked in my rear cab and also how they ate up every single bit of extra space. This bass tube takes up hardly any space under the rear seat and is totally out of site. And it's easy to take out if I have to load up the rear cab. Great buy for the price!
This 6 creates enough bass for all but the biggest bass head. This 6 inch replaced two 8 inch dvc. This Bazooka is neck and neck with the two 8 in a custom box. It's all about the technology. FOLLOW THE RECOMMENDED INSTALL LOCATIONS! The design engineers know more then you. Trust them.
Others have talked about distortion... I would say it is their amp and not the sub. Subs tend to bottom out, not distort. Amps clips and cause distortion. Bottom line... TECHNOLOGY! It's what makes a 4cyl Honda as fast as a V8 and a Bazooka brand tube as loud as 2 subs twice the size in a box. BAZOOKA BY SAS IS ALL YOU NEED!
I have this being pushed by 2 channels of the Blaupunkt GTA4 Amp. Sounds awesome!!!
I installed one Bazooka BT6024DVC in my 1990 F-150 standard cab. The unit fit nicely behind the seat. My old truck had only the two front speakers which I recently replaced. However, 6-1/2's just didn't have the lower end punch I was looking for. I installed the Bazooka and immediately noticed more lower-end. My Pioneer DEH-P3800MP receiver came equipped with the option of a sub output on the rear speaker wires so I used that instead of a separate amp. Overall I have a lower-cost system with decent bass for my occasional use vehicle. Give the Bazooka BT6024DVC a try but if you want BIG bass I suggest you get one of the larger tubes and pump it up with an amp.
Great bass for the buck. I had one in my Dakota extended cab, and it produces full, deep bass without being overpowering. I had it hooked up to an Alpine amp with built in crossover. I like this thing so much I'm getting a second one to go with the original into my new Explorer. Cheaper than getting a custom enclosure and 8" or 10" component sub. Can't go wrong with this little wonder.
Have one of these in my Ford Ranger standard cab. i love it because i dont have to worry about anything hitting it and i can throw junk behind my seat. It is very efficient and this little 6.5 is more than enough for my truck. Im definatly looking to get another, simply beause im a kid obsessed with his sound system.
I bought two of these tubes to put in my 2000 ford f-250 supercrew extended cab. I am very pleased with these, all of my friends cant belive that its only two 6.5 inch bazooka tubes. They hit just as hard as anything I've ever had. You cant go wrong with these for the price.
I had my doubts because of size and wattage ratings whether this tube would thump or not. I used a small 2 channel Profile amp with built in crossover to power it. I installed it in the back of my Volvo wagon and cranked up TobyMac's new CD. My wife came running out of the house and wanted to know what that big rumbling was. I was glad to tell her that it was that little 6 1/2 inch sub in the back of the wagon. I am now tasked with installing one in her vehicle.

Overview: The BT6024DVC features a water-resistant poly enclosure that houses a 6-1/2" poly woofer with a foam surround. The patented Bass Tube enclosure design eliminates bass standing waves for high accuracy, and superior efficiency.
Dual 4-ohm Voice Coils: This tube features dual 4-ohm voice coils that offer flexibility in wiring. When the voice coils are wired in parallel with each other, the tube presents a 2-ohm mono load. When the voice coils are wired in series with each other, the tube presents an 8-ohm mono load. Each coil can handle 150 watts RMS, so the combined power handling is 300 watts RMS.
5-Way Binding Posts: The 5-way binding posts will accept bare wire, pin connectors, spade lugs, banana plugs, and dual banana plugs.
Installation: Each mounting strap has an attached mounting base that can be secured to your vehicle using the supplied self-tapping screws. Once the mounting bases are installed, the tube is held in place by the mounting straps. For best results, the tube should be mounted facing into a corner, and there should be 2" to 4" between the woofer and the corner into which the woofer is pointing.

is good item [ DANIEL Dec 03, 2015 ]
You will need to amp this speaker. [ COREY Oct 05, 2015 ]
I think you want an amp for the impact of the bass consider an amp with the bazooka. I have also had good luck with powered subwoofers. [ MIKE R Oct 05, 2015 ]
Yes but don't expect to much output [ Jason Oct 05, 2015 ]
