Our take on the Bazooka BT8024DVC

by Steven Johnson
Bazooka

Enclosed Subwoofers 101

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.

A bass cannon

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.

Bass Tube efficiency

BT8024DVC 8" Bass Tubes® enclosure

The BT8024DVC Bass Tube features an 8" 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.

Big bass without losing space

Bass Tubes enclosures fit just about anywhere

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.

Our Product Research Team

At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere. That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box, verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs. We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.

Features

Overview: The BT8024DVC features a water-resistant poly enclosure that houses a 8" 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. In addition, each coil may be connected to a different amplifier channel and each channel will see a 4-ohm load. Each coil can handle 200 watts RMS, so the combined power handling is 400 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.

Bazooka BT8024DVC

Written By Patrick, Indiana on Saturday, December 03, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Great value for the money. I am powering it with a 100X4 amp. Two channels are going to my full range front speakers with the high pass filter set around 100hz to keep the doors from buzzing. The other two channels are going to this sub in the trunk (so I have 100X2 RMS going to the sub). I have the low pass set at 110hz right now, but I am still trying to tune the system a little. Right now I have the sub rear facing corner loading the trunk. I thing once I get it tuned correctly I think I am going to love it.
Pros:
easy setup absolutely no distortion in the volume range where i usually listen.
Cons:
as with any ported sub, the accuracy of the sound is a little lacking.

The sound is ok, i wish they sounded the way they use to. I am powering it with a Rockford fosgate Amp and it handles it ok, but i want it to do more. I may have to add a second to get what i am looking for and not sacrifice the room in the trunk.
Pros:
Great compact size
Cons:
needing a second one.

Used this Bazooka to replace a Pyle 10" Bandpass in a '07 Dakota 2dr. Had to dial the Kenwood 300 watt sub amp back! I would highly reccommend this sub to anyone who wants superb sound through the whole spectrum. I have played rock, jazz, r&b, new age and pop and it all sounds excellent!

I installed the Bazooka behind the front seat of my Toyota Tundra. Connected to just a 50 watt amp it sounds GREAT! I highly recommend for anyone who is looking for a good deal on some serious bass.

Written By bazooka fan, kauai,Hawaii on Saturday, August 21, 2010
 
the DVC bazooka was a really good investment. When i first put it in my truck it changed the quality of my sound system, hits really low and makes my truck rattle. I recomend this size bazooka for anyone who has little room for a sub and wants to have some real bass in there car.

2 broken out of the box

Written By Delcour, Arbuckle, Ca. on Tuesday, February 09, 2010
 
spent 3 weeks shipping them back and wainting for the new one. Tried it 2 times, both speakers did not have the surround near the voice coild glued well. It rattled as soon as it was turned on. They are having major quality problems.

Very Pleased

Written By Ben, Philly on Monday, October 27, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I have this tube hooked in parallel to an Eclipse Class D Mono Amp 480watts in 2ohm mode. I have it in the back of my Subaru Outback Wagon. I didn't want to give up my cargo space but I wanted BASS. I decided to give this little tube a try. It is great! It fills my car with great SOUNDING bass with great lows and great thump. It isn't going to be heard coming down the street (that is a good thing) but if you are more interested in having good sound in your car than having the bass be heard by your neighbors this is definitelt what you've been looking for.

Great product

Written By Pax, Tampa, Fl on Friday, February 22, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I added this tube to an 86 300zx to round out the sound and it was fantastic. I am running full capable power and it blends very well with my highs and mids. If you are looking for hard hitting bass you won't be happy and need to stick to boxed 10's or bigger. It does thump a enough though to listen to any music with a good bass beat.

It's been a few years since I had a Bazooka, and my last one was a single 10" in a C5 Corvette. This 8" DVC has a far superior driver and it hits nearly as hard as that "modified" 10 did. Great bump in the trunk of my TSX. Great job SAS!

Just bought this for my 1994 Chevy silverado 1500 series. I put it under the left side bench in the extended cab and this thing bumps. I hooked it up to an alpine amp in parellel. It may not get down into the "deep bass" but this was well worth my money. Great bass for such little money.

Hits hard

Written By Kenan, Morrison, IL on Thursday, May 10, 2007
 
I bought this tube to put in my standard cab '99 chevy silverado. There was no room to mount it anywhere, so I stuck wedged it behind the middle seat. Fits nicely, but the thing is too big. This hits nice and hard. Hooked up to an Alpine M450. DVC setup is nice and easy. Gave it four stars because it is just too big. Sounds nice though.

Thumping Bass

Written By antpetan, Brick,NJ on Wednesday, May 24, 2006
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I had two Infinity DVC Subs I wanted to put in my Ford F-350 Crew Cab Pick-up, but there is absolutely NO place to fit them. So I bought two of these for the simple reason that nothing else would fit. I put them behind the rear seat where they fit snugly and I can't believe the sound out of these suckers! Man do they sound good. No matter what I'm listening to, plenty of nice, clean, thumping bass! I have them facing away from each other and into the corners. Highly recommend these DVC tubes! Pleasantly surprised!!
