Bazooka builds their EL Series subwoofers to deliver the type of spine-tingling bass you expect from the Bazooka name. These subs sport more than just a cool look — Bazooka rounds them out with solid materials, rugged construction, and plenty of venting to keep them cool when your music's running hot. And they'll work great in sealed or vented enclosures, to deliver the kind of bass you really want.

The ELW8014 8" subwoofer features a polypropylene cone with carbon fiber accents to enhance woofer rigidity while maintaining accurate response. A reliable rubber surround keeps the cone in line during long excursion. This 4-ohm Bazooka bass banger handles up to 150 watts RMS, so just add a suitable amplifier, enclosure, and wiring to experience new highs in low end.

What's a component sub and why would I want one?

A component sub is simply a speaker that's designed to reproduce bass once it's installed in a compatible enclosure. Think about the impact of a movie soundtrack in a big theater or even in your own home HDTV setup. A component sub can add the same kind of power to the music in your car. And a car sub is not all about the boom that you hear on a street corner (although that's cool too) - you can pair a component sub with your choice of enclosure to get bass just the way you like it, from tight and punchy to fat and loose. And once you experience music in your car with a well-tuned subwoofer, you'll never go back.

Product Research

Enclosure Compatibility


Cone Materials: The polypropylene cone has superior rigidity, which results in super-low distortion. In addition, the cone is also very resistant to environmental extremes.

Surround: For a smoother response and improved durability, the woofer uses an oversized rubber surround.

Dust Cap: The dust cap has carbon-fiber accents for a sporty look.

Kapton Voice Coil Former: The Kapton voice coil former increases magnetic efficiency and effectively dissipates heat, resulting in high thermal power handling.

Extended Pole Piece: The extended pole piece creates a broad magnetic field for superior power handling, precise voice coil control, and very low deep bass distortion.

Bumped Back Plate: The bumped back plate lets the voice coil reach maximum excursion without bottoming-out.

Venting: The woofer has a rear pole piece vent and side vents that provide maximum heat dissipation for cool operation, resulting in higher power handling and lower distortion.

Nickel-plated Spring Posts: The nickel-plated spring posts will accept pin connectors and bare wire.

Rubber Magnet Boot: A black rubber boot covers the exposed edge of the magnet structure to improve the cosmetics of the woofer and protect the magnet during installation.

Enclosure Compatibility

Recommended Sealed Box Volume: Bazooka recommends a sealed enclosure with an internal volume of 0.34 cu/ft.

Recommended Ported Box Volume: Bazooka recommends a ported enclosure with an internal volume of 0.57 cu/ft and one 2" diameter x 9" long port.
