Excellent behind bench seat in a single cab pick up
1979 Ford F Series
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
My restored 1979 F150 has a fairly loud dual exhaust system that made it difficult to hear the two Kenwood 5 1/4" door and two small cabinet speakers behind the bench seat; especially with windows down on a summer drive. I needed to turn the receiver bass way up, and the bass was still nearly inaudible. After installing this 50W amplified Bazooka, with its gain adjust only near midway, the bass is fantastic. This 8" model fits snugly in a full size single cab, so i didn't need the tie down straps. I first set it up with the RCA input out from my receiver, and the bass boost was quite weak, even at full gain on the tube. To Bazooka's credit, they do recommend using their F.A.S.T connection harness and tapping into the line out speaker connections. When I switched the input from the RCA jacks to the speaker line out; the bass tube really came alive. I must admit, this 50W model is MORE than ample power for a single cab full size pick-up. It really does sound fantastic.
Pros: Easy connections via the included F.A.S.T wire harness; amazing amount of bass from an 8" speaker with a 50W integrated amp.
Cons: Nothing to complain about; regardless of price. This thing suited my needs perfectly.
