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 Tubes enclosure to act like a bass cannon, firing low frequencies throughout your vehicle.

Bass Tube efficiency

BTA10250D 10" amplified Bass Tubes enclosure

Bazooka's BTA10250D 10" amplified Bass Tubes enclosure lets you add ride-filling bass to your system, whether you drive your own vehicle or a leased car. Its 10" woofer combines with a built-in Class D 200-watt amp to delivers strong bass without taking up extra space. A variable low-pass filter allows you to tune the bass output to match up with your vehicle's sound system. You'll also get an installation kit that includes a power/signal harness, 20-amp fuse with holder, straps, and mounting hardware.

Big bass without losing space

Bass Tubes 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.

Double your fun

Want to double your bass? With an optional speaker-level output adapter, you can connect a second passive Bazooka Bass Tube to the built-in amp for a serious boost in bass response. An optional wired Remote Bass Control Module gives you independent in-dash volume control of your bottom end. Want to know more? Take Bazooka's Bass Tubes Tour.

Who needs a powered subwoofer?

To produce bass, you need a sub, an enclosure, and an amplifier, and it can be little tricky to match them all up. A powered sub eliminates all the hassle, as the manufacturer designs the enclosure to house the sub and amp together. This all-in-one solution is especially useful in smaller vehicles, where there's no room to mount a separate amp, or in any vehicle where you need every bit of cargo space. Powered subs range from small, flat boxes that fit under your seat to larger boxes that go in your trunk.

Features

Overview: The BTA10250D features a water-resistant poly enclosure that houses a 10" poly woofer with a foam surround. The woofer is powered by a built-in 200-watt digital amplifier. The patented Bass Tube enclosure design eliminates bass standing waves for high accuracy, and superior efficiency.

Low-pass Filter: The BTA10250D has a low-pass filter that can be adjusted from 60 to 250 Hz.

Remote Level/Crossover Control: Using an optional remote control, you can control the bass output level and crossover frequency of the subwoofer from a remote location.

Controls

Level Control: There is a rotary control on the rear-panel that allows you to adjust the level of the subwoofer.

Crossover Control: The unit's rotary control is found on the rear-panel and allows you to adjust the low-pass filter from 60 to 250 Hz.

Power LED: If power, ground and remote are connected properly, the LED on back of the unit will illuminate in green.

Connections

Remote Control: Phone-type jack for use with an optional remote control; found on rear-panel.

Power Harness: Two quick-slides for use with supplied power harness; found on rear-panel.

Signal Harness: 14-pin Molex plug for use with supplied signal harness

Installation

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.

Required Accessories:

  • Power Wire: the 12-gauge power lead is only 11" long, so additional wire is required to extend it to the battery. Additional power wire must be crimped or soldered to the Bazooka's power lead.
  • Ground Wire: the 12-gauge ground lead is also only 23" long, and may need to be extended. Additional ground wire must be crimped or soldered to the Bazooka's ground lead.
  • Speaker Wire: required only when using the high-level inputs
  • RCA Patch Cord: required only when using the low-level inputs
  • Remote Turn-on Wire: required to connect the remote turn-on lead to the amplifier turn-on lead of your radio

NEVER HAD A DOUBT

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

put the 10inch powered tube in a gmc yukon and also powered a passive tube from the 10inch!!! AND AS EXPECTED,MY NEIGHBORS HATE ME !!!! just what i wanted! unfortunate though that this model is now discontinued!I think i got crutchfields last one.(maybe soon a 12inch 250 watter will come forth???) Easy install-and i do suggest the extra remote control,especially if you listen to different styles of tunage! ONLY Problem is that I added to a factory BOSE system with NO remote wire.Just use an acc. instead. USE A GOOD GROUND! Buy INSULATION and CHECK your license tag periodically...to insure it hasn't fallen off from the bass! If you want punch,move the speaker side closer to back hatch(in an SUV)...want more BOOM? move it away.AND I have YET to hear any break-up except for me and my girlfriend...oops!

Pros: If you ever wanted HUGE bass and save yo SPACE...go w a TUBE

Cons: wish it was a 12inch self powered

It Sounds Great!

Pros: Nice bass in addition to my stock speakers

Cons: I am not too thrilled with the mounts, they work, but they do not hold it too securely.

Love it - with a caveat.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I love this subwoofer. Great sound, quality bass even in the lowest tones. The reason I'm giving this 3 stars, however, is because it took THREE (3) attempts to get me a working BTA 10250D. The first subwoofer was installed no problems, but when I turned it on, there was a very loud vibration coming from the back end. We unscrewed the back, and the amp's circuit board had arrived cracked, causing the vibration. Crutchfield's service was great and sent a replacement out same day. Three business days later the second arrived. The moment I picked up the box I knew something was wrong. Something heavy was sliding around inside. Turns out the entire back plate of the sub (where the amp/connections are attached) was sheared off at multiple points. What is probably a 5-8 pound amp is suspended by thin plastic connections. Definitely lends itself to breaking if there are any jarring motions. Third time around I requested they actually check the sub before shipping, and use extra shipping peanuts. When it arrived, there were barely extra peanuts (I still had all the shipping boxes to compare side-by-side), but the sub was thankfully in one piece and working fine. Since the shipping materials didn't really change, I can only assume there are a bunch of broken BTA 10250D's at the warehouse. Crutchfield service is what saved this sale for me. I love the product performance, but not the build quality. Likely would not buy again. Hopefully this one lasts.

Pros: Great bass quality

Cons: Poor durability, amp held suspended by plastic connections

Exceeded My Expectations

Written By Rico, San Francisco, CA on Monday, June 18, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was looking for a all in one amp + sub setup with a solid sound quality. At first I was looking into BTA8100 or the BTA6100. They both had great reviews but noticied a few people that wanted a little more power. So I decided to not take a chance and decided to go with the BTA10250D. I installed the BTA10250D along with 4 Polk Audio db 651s front and rear speakers and a Dual XHD7714 head unit. WOW this sucker is loud and you can hear a wide range of bass but with quality. I totally recommend getting the remote control on the bazooka to be able to adjust the gain and range on the fly while in the drivers seat.

Pros: powerfull

Cons: make sure you don't mind sacraficing a bit of trunk space

Premium quality

Written By Frank, California on Wednesday, November 16, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The first Bazooka subwoofer I received from Crutchfield did not work and I wasn't sure if it due to my wiring. After calling it in to Crutchfield, they immediately sent me new one within a week and it worked perfectly.

After fine tuning my JVC radio which has preamp outputs for Subwoofer controls and the remote control model, the bass hits really strong.

I installed this onto my wife's Toyota Rav4 and I was surprise how good it sounds. The bass hits so strong that it actually vibrates my windows. Keep in mind that it's Rav4 and has no trunk so the sound waves travels all over inside the cab. I only listen to Hip/Hop & Rap and I was surprise how this unit could handle the low bass tones without sounding distorted.

I have tried all different types of subwoofers from (Cerwin Vegas, Rockford Fosgate, JL Audio W6 & W3, Kickers L5) and this Bazooka could keep up with those name brands.

I recommend this product to anyone who wants a lot of bass and don't want a bulky box to take over the trunk, and wont tip over and fall like those other shallow boxes. This might not shake your neighbors window as you come down street like the JL Audio or Kickers, but it honestly sounds real clean when your inside the car.

Pros: It's compact and I love how you can easily disconnect the cable wires from the back so you can move the subwoofer. I also like how it has preamp connections for RCA cables, where some companies are being cheap and not offering that and want the subwoofer to come one when a signal is pass through... that's the worse way for an amp to come on because there will always be a delay.

Cons: I would have like the ground wire to be just a little longer, maybe an extra foot or two. The power wire would have been nice if it ran all the way to the battery, but I purchase a Rockford Fosgate amp kit so it wasn't a big deal.

Works Great!!!

I added this Bazooka to my son's Kenwood/Boston Acoustic's stereo in his Honda Element. Wow! Tuned like I like it the stereo comes alive with the addition of some much needed and well reproduced bass. Tuned like he likes it I can feel him coming home before he gets here. HIGHLY recommended.

Absolutely love the addition to my 2002 Silvia. Other than the rattles in my trunk I have no complaints. Puts out outstanding bass and was a breeze to install. I now plan on adding the second passive tube next to it and increase the boom :) Using a JVC KD-A805 Reciever with JL Audio mids and highs.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I couldn't be happier w/ the quality and performance of this sub for the money. The
amount and clarity of bass this tube puts out is insane and blends in perfectly w/ the
rest of my speakers which are upgraded and powered by a 300 watt amp. The tube fits
perfect in the storage well of my 08 wrangler and can easily be unhooked and removed
when needed. I couldn't ask for a better set up; loud and clear is an uderstatement.

Thanks Brooke! You were right.

Great sub for rounding out your factory system

Written By FrankC, Doylestown PA on Tuesday, October 12, 2010

This is a great sub for the money. I have it in the trunk of a 2011 BMW 328i and it does a great job of rounding out the factory sound system. Will not rattle the cars next to you. Also, not good for the person who wants tremendous bass. I did get the wired gain and crossover control. Highly recommend!!! BMW's are known for insulated trunks. I still get the feel and sound with this sub.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am very pleased with this product. It did exactly what I wanted it to do. Made a big difference in the sound quality of my Alpine 102 head unit and 5-1/2" Alpine speakers. I put the tube in the trunk and it really hits good. Plenty of bass for my ears. I mainly listen to rock, country, and mild alternative. The bass is even good with the top down and crusing around town. Bass isn't as noticeable when going down interstate at 70 but I can still tell it's there.

Impressive

I had never bought a bazooka tube before thinking it was kinda cheesy and a cheap way out. But, after needing something to fit in just the right size space I got it and I love it! Sound is great, it will get LOUD and still maintain good punch and fidelity. Great product

Written By Brian, Bethesda, MD on Friday, September 25, 2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This sub saved me space (fits under the cargo cover) & considering it has a class D amp, you can't go wrong. I have a hybrid with a smaller 12v battery, so something that consumes as little power as possible while at a lower cost was exactly what I needed. Definitely buy the Remote Bass Control as well and you will be satisfied.

Good sound, inexpensive price

Written By Sheldon, Wellsville, KS on Sunday, September 13, 2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great sound if you have a lower wattage system (up to 60 watts a channel). Tight
bass after break in period, hits low enough for any type of music, won't wake up
the neighbors. I listen to rock, metal, classical, and rap and it all sounds great. I
have it mounted in the back of a Subaru Outback with aftermarket speakers and a
Kenwood HD942U. I would get the wired remote as it really helps when listening
to different source music to adjust the bass volume.

Amazing

Written By Greg, Charleston, Wv on Monday, August 10, 2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

At first, I was a tad skeptical of the Bazooka, but frankly nothing else would fit in an extended cab Chevy S-10 (short of the nearly $900.00 JL StealthBox, and that would still require an amp). So, the Bazooka it was. I had mine professionally installed (not quite comfortable drilling the mounting holes!) I've been running it through it's "break in period", and it only seems to continue getting better. Fairly tight, punchy bass.....this isn't the answer it you're looking for that "maximum boom car sound", but if you're looking accurate bass (and have a weird cargo space), then this may just be what you're looking for!

Deep Sound, Easy Install, Not an eyesore

Written By Tim, Trenton, OH on Saturday, March 28, 2009

I bought this since Bazooka has been around for many years and there product is practically the same design as it always was. This means that it has been tried tested and cofirmed to be top notch for what it does.

My opinion, the 10" sub is the ultimate choice for anyone looking for some great sub sound out of there system without making major mods or having a big bulky box in your car.

They provide good clean and tight bass with good response and a much more deep sound and feel than you would expect from a 10" subwoofer. I have the powered 10" bazooka along with the passive 10" bazooka feeding off the powered sub in my Envoy XL trunk and they sound great.

I do recommend using the optional remote volume control since some music has different sounds and you can adjust as needed the power to the subs without accessing the amp controls. The remote can be easily mounted in the front of your vehicle and hidden for easy use.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've used Bazooka Tube brand subs before and was very happy with the product. This time however the only thing I can say is that the rubber gasket around the face of the tube did not fit very well at all, especially around the port section of the unit. Other than that it's a great product.
