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.
Woofer Materials: The
woofer cone is made of water resistant laminated paper, and the surround is made
Dual Voice Coils: The woofer
has two 4 ohm voice coils, and each coil can handle up to 250 watts RMS (500 watts peak). Each
voice coil has its own set of input terminals. Gold-plated bridge plates
(jumpers) are included to connect the two sets of terminals together for
connection to a mono or bridged amplifier. When the bridge plates are installed,
the voice coils are wired in parallel with each other, so the woofer presents a
2 ohm mono load. With the bridge plates installed, the Bazooka may be connected
to a mono, or bridged, amplifier capable of delivering up to 500 watts RMS. When
the bridge plates are removed, each coil may be connected to a different
amplifier channel, and each channel will see a 4 ohm load. With the bridge
plates removed, each set of terminals can be connected to a stereo amplifier
capable of delivering up to 250 watts RMS per channel.
Warning Note: If you will be
using an amplifier that cannot handle a 2 ohm mono load, the bridge plates
should be removed, and each set of terminals should be connected to a separate
channel on a stereo amplifier. Connecting this subwoofer, with the bridge
plates installed, to a mono, or bridged, amplifier that is not 2 ohm stable
will result in amplifier damage.
"Turbo Cooled" Voice
Coils: The pole piece is vented, allowing more air into the voice coil gap.
Air circulating around the voice coils helps dissipate heat, resulting in
greater power handling and increased reliability.
Moisture Resistant Enclosure: The
enclosure is moisture resistant for reliable operation in humid conditions.
Gold-Plated 5-Way Binding Posts:
The input terminals are gold-plated to resist corrosion. The binding posts will
accept bare wire, spade lugs, banana plugs, dual banana plugs and pin
connectors. The posts are recessed into a cup at the end of the tube opposite
Mounting Method: There are 2 mounting bases which are
made to be attached to your vehicle with
the provided 1" self-tapping screws. Once the mounting bases are installed, the tube
can be placed on the bases
and secured with the included mounting straps. For best results, the tube should
be mounted facing into a corner, and there should be 2 to 4 inches between the
woofer and the corner into which it is pointing.
