About the Bazooka BTA6100

A bass cannon

The affordable BTA6100 6-1/2" amplified Bazooka Bass Tube lets you add ride-filling bass to your system with a minimum of hassle. It's an ideal solution if you drive a leased vehicle, and want the thrill of powerful bass but don't want to make any modifications. The BTA6100 Bass Tubes enclosure comes with a 6-1/2" woofer, a built-in amp (100 watts max power), and installation parts including a power/signal harness (15" power and ground wires, 10" turn on and speaker input leads, RCA inputs, and auto turn-on jumper), 7.5-amp fuse with holder, power rings, and mounting hardware.

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.

Big bass without losing space

Bass Tubes fit just about anywhere

A compact Bass Tube 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.

Bass control from the driver's seat

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.

Important Note: You'll need to purchase an amp wiring kit to install this powered Bass Tubes enclosure — the included wiring harness is less than two feet long.

Filled in the bottom end I was missing. Helped the 6-1/2" speakers work more efficiently crossed over at the receiver at 80 htz. The securing straps were not applicable for my 2004 Corolla so I used outdoor grade velcro strips.

Pros: Solid build. Simple quick connector. Great sounding 3.14-100 htz. bass.

Cons: None.

Nice Bass for the Price

J from Donnelley, ID on 6/25/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Installed this powered tube under the seats of my ski boat. It picks up the lows but it will not rattle the windows (if I had windows). Adds enough bass to give your music a bit more punch but not over the top. Hooking it up was straightforward. I would highly recommend a sub install kit.

Pros: Easily to install. Easy to disconnect if needed. Compact design allows you to hide it away if wanted.

Cons: Don't expect window rattling power from a 6 inch sub.

I love this product. I did a complete sound system install on my Honda. Very easy to install and the bass quality is superb. I was not looking to win any competitions or be obnoxiously loud. It is loud enough to enjoy when turned up and even when listening at low volume it adds that bass that fills up the cabin.

Pros: Compact and ready to use Deep bass without distortion Great value

Cons: None so far

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I've owned this for a few years now and have had it in a couple of different vehicles. Don't expect much from this sub. I do not know how it is rated down to 39 hz. In addition sound quality is low. By the time bass gets loud enough to overcome road noise, it is already distorting. I have tried various mounting positions and EQ'd out the very deep bass, but to no help. I realized the door speakers in my wife's car have much better bass. The only positive is that it is compact.

Installed this in the back of my 2002 Wrangler (back seat is out) and what a difference! Music and talk shows sound better and clearer with the subwoofer.

Its a small, compact powered subwoofer but don't under estimate its punch! Perfect for small space to fill in any lows you are looking for. Install is very easy and the product is a trusted brand, buy with confidence!

Pros: Exactly what I was looking for to fill the lows with pounding bass although this small woofer bumps hard! Tune it to my liking via the head unit.

Great subwoofer for what I needed. Not trying to outdo the person next to me buy just needed some added bass to help fill out the full range of music.

Pros: Easy to install and compact. Fit under back seat no problems.

Cons: Hold down straps are not very good, and screws provided were not long enough to go through the carpet, and attach to the floor.

Sound Great in Scion xB

Lonnie from California on 6/24/2015

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I've been doing concert sound for 22 years, so good quality audio is important. Have had a passive set of 6" tubes powered by an Alpine amp for over a decade, migrating from car to car, and have loved the performance vs space of the Bazooka tubes. Recently my son got a 2006 Scion xB. While the factory system is pretty good, it needed more punch. Decided to go with two of the 6" again for space, and the powered so no additional amp was required. Original hope was that they could sit under the front seats, but my measurements were slightly off and the tubes were 1/4" too large in diameter. Moved them to the back and am amazed once again how nice these sound. The trickiest part is getting them balanced using the factory head unit which doesn't have dedicated sub outputs. While they won't win any stereo battles, they will significantly increase the quality of the listening experience for the occupants of the car.

The amplified bazooka bass tube delivers big sound in a small package. Installation is very simple and it delivers just the right amount of bass to complete your sound system.

Pros: No need for an amplifier to add to existing system and it can be placed in small spaces.

Put it in a 65 impala fits perfect behind spare and back seat without being visible. Easy install and sounds plenty good for most people. At this price you are getting much above average sound. You will absolutely step up you're listening experience with this sub. I have several high end sound systems and this is worth investing in for this kind of application.

Pros: None

Cons: Fits in small spaces sounds great

THE BEST bass sound for the size anywhere. I love my bazooka tube!!

Pros: Works and is adjustable at the unit so that the adjustment from the head unit makes sense i.e. you don't have it cranked up or down at the head unit because you can "calibrate" it by adjusting it first at the head unit (one time only)

Cons: Tougher install than a head unit. Took a littly while, but Crutchfield helped and I googled around as well to learn how to pull out odd panels and all.

Bazooka BTA6100 Base Tube

Trkman from Naugatuck, Ct on 5/17/2013

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Bought this tube for my 2004 Honda Goldwing motorcycle. Previouly bought one worked well for 2 seasons then just stopped working. I love the sound and the bass was just the touch needed to give my bike that in car/ in home stereo sound. I get a lot of compliments about the sound. I'm still trying to tweak the system. If Honda concentrated on upgrading the system on their touring bikes then they would truly have a GREAT touring bike. I heard stock Harley's that sounded better than mine (Prior to adding the tube) . I understand Honda improved the sound with the newer bikes but, mine is just a 2004 and I love it except for the sound. I've spent a lot of money on trying different speakers that everyone claimed "Improved my sound dramatically". The only reason I gave the tube a 4 instead of 5 is because it : (1) Takes up much needed room in the bike's behind the passenger seat trunk. (2) The tie-downs given by the manufacture do not keep the tube in place and everytime I stop I have to check and tighten up the straps. Now along with the straps I use wooden wedges to help keep it in place.

Pros: Fills out the sound. Now the stereo does'nt sound tinny on my 2004 Honda Goldwing motorcycle. The added bass makes the sound richer and fuller. Love the sound!.

Cons: Uses much trunk space in my 2004 Honda Goldwing motorcycle and because of vibration does not stay in place with tie-downs given.

Bobby B from Oakland International Airport, Michigan on 4/10/2012

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I used it in my Cheby HHR strapped in the back facing the hatch. Installation was pretty straight forward. MAKE SURE YOU RUN THE POWER WIRE UP FRONT AS WELL!!! My battery is in the back of the car and I didn't realize I had to run a separate wire to a keyed power source up front. I love the idea of being able to remove it easily when I need to. I routed the wire harness through the small storage bins behind the rear seat and can hide the pigtail inside them when not in use. Only the straps are left if I fold my rear seats down to transport something large. It's hooked directly to an Alpine CDA-105 CD Receiver via RCA jacks with Alpine SPS-600 6-1/2"/6-3/4" 2-way Car Speakers, no amp. This set up sounded good, but now it sounds great. I thought it was a little pricey at first, but I am very happy with my purchase. After doing some research on line, I was going to purchase the remote control module. After further research on my receiver, I found out that I had two different options for this function already built into my Alpine and didn't need the module. Once it's dialed in to how you like it, it works for a lot of different music, but it is necessary to adjust when other tunes come on. IMHO, a necessity. I listen to different kinds of music...Rock, Jazz, Blues, Country, R&B, Motown, Big Band and many others. As others have stated, it is not a tooth rattling bass, but it certainly does fill out the sound in the cabin that I was most certainly missing

Pros: Easy install, can easily be removed if needed, simple hook up, excellent sound.

Cons: A little on the pricey side...but, IMHO, if it lasts, well worth the money for the additional sound it brings.

Small Package Big Sound!

JP from Dallas, Georgia on 1/17/2012

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I installed this in a 06 Ford F-250 Super Duty Crew Cab. This speaker just barely fits behind the rear seats in that huge 4 door truck. The seats have to be removed to get the speaker behind there if you have an electric rear sliding window due to the protrusions from the motors and rails for the window. Even on a standard rear window removal may be necessary. The void behind the seats is big enough just not the opening, and you have to remove the jack tray. I wanted to keep the factory radio for now so I got the F.A.S.T. - 9999 and extension cable which 17' is barely enough in this huge truck. The 9999 is nice but be careful the wires on the FAST harness will come out when screwed too much. I had two pop out on me, if that happens unscrew the cap just simply re-strip the wire, insert wire back in and tighten, then it's perfect. I installed the F.A.S.T. - 9999 like Bazooka wants you to by tapping the power to the constant on the radio, which went against crutchfields recommendations but so far not a problem. Make sure to ask crutchfield for wire color codes for your factory radio, otherwise you want know what wire is what. 100 watt amp is pretty small and does not draw many amps less than 7.5 which the fuse for my radio is a 30 amp. The whole job took me 8 hours; I replaced factory speakers in the doors and walls in the process as well. You want vibrate the doors off your ride with this sub and you want be heard miles away but good clean deep loud bass will fill the cabin.

This Bazooka Bass Tube does the job!! I was impressed that a 6.5" can give out very clean bass throughout the whole car. This Sub gives that good thump and really fills the lows while the speakers on the car focus more on the mids and highs. Put less stress on the speakers and makes my stock sound system in my 08 Impreza sound way better. My friends were impressed that a little sub like this can produce so much. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to add bass to their car at a low price. Buy it! You'll be satisfied!

If you clicked this far, just add this to your cart. I have had 10" & 8" Bazooka Tubes in the past for small tight spaces, and was hesitant whether a 6.5" would live up to my expectations. The previous 39 reviews all were 5's and that sold me on taking the chance to order it. It shipped Same Day as promised and arrived to my door in under 48 hours. I work for a large Electronics Retailer, and unfortunately we do not carry Bazooka. I had my installer wire everything up in my Jeep Wrangler and it blew me away. It hits hard with Rock, goes deep with R&B/Dance, moves your mirrors and is a real head turner at just 6.5". I would recommend the Bazooka brand Subwoofer Gain controller as well with your purchase. 40 reviews at 5.0 can't be wrong......enjoy

I just installed the Bazooka 6.5 inch 100 watt sub in my 4 door Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and it punches. It is all the bass I was hoping for and more, this thing really kicks. i have 4 infinity 6.5 in shallow mount speakers, 2 in the sound bar and two in the front with a Kenwood head unit. The infinity speakers have zero base, they are clear and crisp but no base whatsoever. The Bazooka powered sub adds all the bass I need plus more, this was definitely the missing link to my system. I listed to hard rock, some techno, alternative etc. The 6.5 in base tube hits all the double base like a charm. I am totally satisfied and cant get the smile off my face, its like i am listening to my favorite music all over again for the first time.

Fairly easy to install. 6.5 inch speaker and 100 watt amp supplys plenty of bass. Was able to fit behind backseat of 2009 tacoma double cab after removing factory storage compartment. It would probably fit with compartment in but would require some modification. Subwoofer is a must for todays dynamic music in any application. You wont regret this sub.

I have a 2004 Silverado and I purchased this subwoofer to go along with the Alpine SPS600 speakers in the front doors and Alpine SPS400's in the rear doors. I have a Sony head unit and did not want to go to the added trouble and expense of adding an amplifier to this setup so this powered sub fit the bill. It fits neatly out of the way under the rear seat and the bass this thing puts out is amazing. I remember reading somewhere that the sub would sound better after a break in period and that has been my experience. After a week the subwoofwer sounds fantastic. It provides all the bass I could ever want. It really finished off my system and I would highly recommend this sub to anyone who wants to add great bass without alot of expense or taking up a lot of room.

I have this unit in my Mazda regular cab B2500 for over 2 years now. You cannot beat this sub as far as space taken up and bass delivered. I have it placed behind the drivers seat on the little ledge and at 6ft tall I have no problems putting the seat all the way back. Stock deck with pioneer 5''1/4 speakers in doors and in the back wall it sounds really good. Its Not going to compete with 12's & 2500 watts, but what it will do is add clean crisp bass to your truck ( turn the levels up and it will thump all day long if your into that) . Crutchfield teck support was awesome, they can give you the color codes for the stock harness (remote wire) for any car/ truck and probably the space shuttle. This a great product from a great supplier, you can't go worng with this one.

This is only a 6.5!

kronc42 from Denver CO on 7/15/2010

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I have a 1997 Jeep Cherokee classic. The stereo has 6.5 Alpine S speakers in the rear and 5 1/4 Alpine in the front. The deck is a JVC Kameleon. I listen to every type of music from rap to country music. I did not want a large sub to take up the whole cargo area. I felt like I had to add a subs due to the size of the speakers and them not allowing any base to come out of the system because on the cone size. I was worried about buying this even with such good reviews because of its size. I'm 25 years old and most of my friends have Huge boxed subs 600watts min. Well the long sorry I listened to all the reviews and ordered the sub. When I called crutchfield of course I had to check to see if there was anyone's in the open boxed section. The guy told me no, these rarely come back. I asked why he stated that its because they don't take up space and they really work. The whole time I'm thinking we will see. I kept thinking even when I installed it god this thing is so small and light there is no way it can do what I want. I was so wrong I installed it in the rear panel like the hummer stock install kit for these off the ground. This thing is GREAT it fixed the stereo problem. The base is more then impressive. What really makes a difference is this sub keeps up with fast low beats. I have seen very little 12 inch subs that can move so fast and sound so clear. I would recommend this to anyone that loves base but not willing to give up there whole trunk to get it!

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I read the reviews for this product and the reviews were favorable. I wanted something to add a little more low end to my car stereo, and this certainly does the trick. I have the stock speakers that came with my car, an aftermarket deck, and this sub in the trunk, and it kicks enough low end to keep me satisfied. But like other reviewers said, if you're looking for something that will wake the neighbors, this isn't the product for you. You're better off getting an amp and a box sub. This sub is meant to fill your car with high quality sound at a reasonable price. The only complaint I really have is the straps to mount the sub are a little annoying to work with. I highly recommend this product if you're on a budget or you just want a little extra kick in your car stereo.

Quick and Easy

Jim S from Pittsburgh on 11/13/2009

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought the BTA6100 with the universal FAST connector kit for my daughter's 2008 Sportage. Installation was a breeze (less than an hour). Since the 100 amp sub has a relatively low current draw, I simply used the 12V/120 watt power outlet in the cargo area for my power and ground. I attached the sub to a small board that had velcro on the bottom (works well with Kia carpet). As such, removal of the sub is as simple as disconnecting the harness and pulling out the board. The Clarion CZ-209 with the BTA6100 is more than adequate for the small SUV. The sub lessens the workload and probably will extend the life of the factory speakers. I did have one minor problem where I had a rattle coming from the rear of the sub. When I removed the sub end cap, I found a screw that had completely loosened and was rolling around inside the enclosure. I reinstalled the screw (one of 2 used to attach the heat sink to the end cap) and all is well. If not for the screw problem, I would have rated it 5 stars.

Bought this for my son's car - a Celica GT convertible. This car has a small trunk and a small passenger area so I really needed something that would not take up too much space. His mother also was very nervous about him playing it too loud so a big bass box was out of the question. I read the reviews on Crutchfield and decided to purchase this item mainly because of them (good sound and good reliability were often mentioned). When we had it installed the technician said "it isn't very loud, you may not be happy". Well I guess he was used to 1000W systems with 14" drivers because my son was NOT disappointed when we fired it up. It sounds great in his car. It puts out plenty of bass, enough to shake the mirrors and you can feel the vibrations in your hands. His other speakers now sound much better too because they don't have to carry the low frequency load. Crutchfield is great and I will definitely be buying here again.

Sounds Really Good, But...

Well made product. Sounds really good, especially for its size. I would recommend for mounting in trunk of car. It didn't work for my application under the seat of my Hummer due to it's odd shape and need to strap around the unit with a nylon strap to secure it wit the speaker facing a corner or panel. If the Bazooka engineers are reading this, please make a unit with a flat surface that will sit proper on a floorboard or in a truck. The round tube with the oval bump doesn't quite lend itself to easy mounting. I ended up going with a pizza box style 10" powered sub that sit on my floor board on rubber feet. Sounds 80% as good as the Bazooka, but fits much better.

The BTA6100 has me very impressed. Never have I seen or heard a subwoofer of its size engulf a car in bass so powerful or accurate! I installed it in my Jetta III and the difference was like night and day. The manual is well written and Crutchfield sent a helpful packet rich with information that people who are new to stereo installation can follow. One thing I should mention is the 7.5A fuse included with the BTA6100 is slightly underspecced (12V x 7.5A = 90W, and I doubt the amp is 100% efficient). If you need a space-saving sub to fill in those lows, look no further.

This went into a 91 nissan nx2000. Most people don't know what it is so I'll tell you. It's a 2 door, 4 seat (barely), hatch back small car. These bazooka tubes work great in a hatch. Im limited for space so This was a great answer. I owned one a long time ago that wasn't powered and It could take a beating. Compare that to that powered infinity box (read reviews about longevity). I put an alpine 9883 and infinity speakers in the old stock locations. They are more than loud enough without an amp (in this little car) and perfectly clear but they do not have much bass. Now you won't shake your neighbors car with a 6" bass tube but I can feel the bass in my clothes and the mirrors do shake when you have it above 20 on the volume knob. Also the best part about a 6" tube is that the bass is super clean no distortion (except in songs that put it in there). I listen to rock, rap, metal and pop. I hope this review helps. I read these reviews before I made my choice and I appreciated the things wrote hear. Good luck with your choice. BTW crutchfield was absolutly the best and provided all hardware and connectors to make life easy if your going to install yourself.

I bought this for my 1998 Chevy S10 standard cab. I was very unsatisfied with listening to the factory system so I decided to add a little flavor. I purchased a Pioneer DEH-P3900MPI stereo and this improved my listening pleasure but I needed something to make up for the lack of low end my factory speakers couldn't handle. I had very little room to work with so I found this product and based off the reviews I went ahead and purchased it. Like others I felt that this probably wouldn't make much of a thump but, I was very wrong. I have this placed behind the passenger seat and fits perfectly. I'm glad I didn't buy the bigger 8" or 10" because the fit would have been too tight. This thing moves so much air for being so little, you just can not go wrong. I only have the amp turned up half way and it's still more than enough. This sub works perfectly with my stereo. If you are tight on space, BUY THIS SUB!! I'm happy I did.

In my previous car, I had taken the time to custom-build my box, install a 10" sub, and customize everything from speakers to headunits, etc. In my current car, I wanted a nice, clean setup with minimal intrusion, good sound and a reasonable budget. After reading reviews, I decided to give it a shot - you never know with any product until you try it. The system was installed with existing factory equipment, using high-level inputs, and honestly, I am amazed by how powerful and efficient this Bazooka is. It has great, clean, non-distorting sound, making it appear like a system much larger than it is. I didn't even mount it into a corner as suggested, yet it still sounds fantastic. If you're considering a compact, non-intrusive installation and want great sound, but are thinking "What can a 6-inch, 100-watt-amplified sub really do?". In short, a whole lot more than you'd ever imagine.

I drive a 2002 GMC Sierra ext cab. I have an aftermarket head unit and speakers, but the bass was severely lacking. However, I didn't want to give up a lot of space.

I am EXTREMELY satisfied with it and would recommend it to anyone looking for better sounding music. What I also love is that the bass does not leak out of my truck at all, so it doesn't bother anyone. Inside, however, it sounds great, which is just the way I wanted it. I listen to rock in general. I now even find myself listening to older songs that I never would have bothered with just because they sound so good.

The built in 100 watt amp has plenty of umph for the 6" sub. There is a Optional remote level control that you can plug in, but my deck has a sub output which works just fine it it's place. I only wish I could fit the 8" or better yet the 10" Bazooka, but the 6" will do just fine in the limited space. I listen to mostly rock and old school rap (great combo huh) it makes everything sound great. My other speakers are the 4" in the dash and some 4" in the cab corners, these are Blaupunkt the OEM locations. You cannot go wrong with a Bazooka in your ride!!

Makes the music come to life!

A great product! I put this in my Dodge Ram pickup with a standard cab - there are storage bins behind the seats, and the tube nestled perfectly into the tray behind the passenger seat (used a 2x6 plank to lift the tube up a little bit so the wiring harness clears the edge of the tray-that';s how precise it fit). The bass response is excellent! I have Kenwood 3-way 6x9's in the factory locations in the door that had very good bass (the air from the speakers made my pants leg next to the speaker move), but there is a distinct difference now. I wasn't looking for a loud thump driving down the road, I wanted a richer and fuller low-end, and this baby provides it. Easy installation (although the power lead they provide is not long enough for any installation, use some 14 ga stranded electrical wire), and well worth the price!

Nice thump for the price

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I installed this sub in my '01 Silverado. Install is easy with no modifications to vehicle. I have a sony head unit with a sub pre amp out. I was worried that this sub would be way too small. It thumps my truck pretty good. I have the volume on the sub turned down half way, and half way on my head unit and it is proportional to my pioneer 6 1/2" and 4"X6" speakers. I also bought a 10 guage amp wire kit to do the install. I recommend finding a smaller wire kit, like 12 or 14 awg if they make one, or just go buy some wire. The harness on the sub is small and the fuse they supply is only 7.5 amps. If you want to thump the guy next to you, and the guy next to him, step up to the 8" or 10" with the 200 watt amp.

Features

Overview: The BTA6100 features a water-resistant poly enclosure that houses a 6-1/2" poly woofer with a foam surround. The woofer is powered by a built-in 100-watt maximum amplifier. The patented Bass Tube enclosure design eliminates bass standing waves for high accuracy, and superior efficiency.

Low-pass Filter: The BTA6100 has a fixed low-pass filter at 85 Hz with a slope of 18 dB/octave. 

Subsonic Filter: The subsonic filter, set at 35Hz, prevents really low frequencies from being amplified. This allows the amplifier to run more efficiently with increased power output.

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

Auto Turn-On: The subwoofer will turn on automatically when it senses music in the high-level or low-level inputs.

Balanced Input Circuitry: Balanced low-level and balanced high-level input circuitry is used for improved noise reduction.

Controls

Back Panel:

  • Level Control: rotary control that allows you to adjust the level of the subwoofer
  • Input Phase Switch: allows you to adjust the phase of the subwoofer
  • Power LED: if power, ground and remote are connected properly, the LED will illuminate in green

Connections

Back Panel:

  • Remote Level Control: minijack for use with optional remote level control
  • Harness: 14-pin Molex plug for use with supplied 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 16-gauge power lead is only 10" 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 16-gauge ground lead is also only 10" 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 only if you do not use the auto turn-on feature

Size and space restraints [ Casey  Sep 29, 2017 ]
A
I chose this item because it fits in the space that I have available. I would have preferred a different sub enclosure with a larger sub but there is just nowhere good to put that in my vehicle. [ AARON  Jun 11, 2017 ]

I've owned them in the past and have proven to be a great product! [ Gilbert  Feb 07, 2017 ]

It was recommended by a specialist and I know nothing about audio. [ Cristella  Dec 15, 2016 ]
A
Tons of positive reviews about this, and it looked like it would fit under the rear bench seat in my 2002 F150 Supercrew, which it did. Many reviews said this sub filled out the low end of the music inside the car, without being obnoxious to the point of being heard from a block away, that's what I was looking for - good sound inside my truck without drawing a lot of attention to me. This unit delivered on that and I'm pleased with the purchase. [ michael  Aug 10, 2016 ]
A
I Love the Bass that this Unit produces, but it just didn't fit into my 1972 Datsun Pickup. Tried behind the bench but it caused the bench to be to far forward, if I were 5' it would be a perfect fit. I had to go with (Sound Ordnance B-8PTD) a unit that fits under the seat.

I have one already and they are great [ Lil Mike  May 30, 2016 ]

Always wanted good, deep bass. Already installed this item and I'm glad i did not pick the 50watt. This has enough power for what i need, it adds awesome bass to all of my music. [ YOHANNY  May 18, 2016 ]
A
My last 6" amplified Bazooka lasted over 16 years. (in the same truck) When I finally sold the truck and tried to reinstall the Bazooka in my new truck, the amplifier would not power back up. (actually it went out with a nasty smelling cloud of smoke) But I'd say 16 years in a truck that had constant daily vibration and temperatures ranging from -40 in the winter to +105(F) every year was a pretty good run. I have no problem buying another one. I hope it lasts just as long! [ Joshua F.  May 15, 2016 ]
A
I previous owned a powered Bazooka 6 1/2" sub and loved it! Recently, it stopped working. But, I must add I had it for 8 yrs! It sounded great in my Toyota Paseo which is a small two door coup. It doesn't take up very much space at all. Very few products are good quality and give great service So, I'm buying another one. [ Michael  Feb 19, 2016 ]
A
After reading 20+ reviews about this little bass speaker and all the reviews giving 5 stars... It made my decision easy. [ Karl  Feb 12, 2016 ]

I have had several Bazzocka's over the years. They have worked well for me. The center console of your boat we would be a great place. Use the marine version to handle the damp environment, for long lasting use.

Q
I want to add bass to my '69 Beetle convertible. Considering this behind the back seat. Reviews look good, but don't want to waste my money on bass I won't even hear back there. Not exactly a hot rod sound, but definitely a louder car than your standard late model vehicle. Would this little gem get the job done? Don't wanna rattle the asphalt, just make a little rumble.

I am extremely happy with this Sub! While it will not win you any competitions, it will fill your bug nicely!! I put it behind my daughters bench seat in her '94 F350...wow. I have to turn it down as it is too much for that cab size. Truely full bass too! For fun I ran some bass test cd's through it and it was amazing for what this unit costs, and it's size! And was so simple to install and setup. Enjoy.
[ Michael  May 02, 2018 ]
A
Yes yes yes
[ Anthony  May 02, 2018 ]
A
This is a great addition if you just want to add some bass but not rattle the car next to you. I would recommend it over and over again. I have had mine for over a year now and it still kicks. Plus it's convenient - you can take it out within a matter of seconds if you need extra space and pop it back in within the same amount of time.
[ Paul  May 02, 2018 ]
A
This is my second Bazooka. Perfect to add a little thump. Easy to install and wire. We fully recommend.
[ Kent  May 02, 2018 ]
A
This is a good product. It's great adding a good solid bass for rockin' roll. Not for rapp. Easy installation. The harness that comes with it is ok. However, the one that should come with it is extra and is long enough to put in a 70s era Cadillac. Makes the job even easier. I would recommend this product for an adequate bass sound
[ ROBERT  May 02, 2018 ]
Q
Can I have this bass tube installed without having to modify my factory system. I'm concerned because I have a newer car with a touchscreen?
[ BigDB  Apr 07, 2018 ]
4 answers
A
Yes you can. You would just need to splice into the factory speaker wires. This allows for both high level inputs (speaker wires) or low level inputs (RCA).
[ RYAN  Apr 09, 2018 ]
A
I am not sure my 98 Grand Marq does not have the factory radio. The Crutchfeild Techs should be able to help you they are great, and were very helpful helping me pick out the wright bazooka tube for my car. I think they sell some type of adapter that will allow you to hook it up to a factory system
[ charles  Apr 07, 2018 ]
A
Yes. You could run this off of any speaker signal.
[ stephen  Apr 07, 2018 ]
A
Yes. Use the speaker level inputs in the bass tube and tap some wires off of your vehicle L & R speakers near the Bazooka, then choose the auto on function that senses a sound signal that turns on the bass tube. This way you do not have to interface with the factory head unit at all. The Bazooka will get its sound from the taps into the factory speaker wiring and will auto turn on when it senses a loud enough sound signal from those speaker taps.
[ Alan  Apr 07, 2018 ]

Can this sub be installed on its side. Meaning cannot be installed with the tube turned so the it is 7 inches high and 9 inches wide?

Absolutely
[ MIKE  Aug 23, 2017 ]

Yes Dominic, the position of the tube makes no difference in the operation. As long as the open end is not blocked it should be fine.

all of the wired connections run into the flat bottom of it so you couldn't stand it up on it's end without affecting those.

Q
Would you recommend the 6.5 powered bazooka tube in a 2006 prius? Once the laughter subsides, I'd appreciate some guidance on whether it's worth the effort or not. Thanks.
[ Hitman  Mar 29, 2016 ]
2 answers
A
NO worries on laughing. I bought one for a golf cart and so didn't need to be bumping down the road to save on gas but it did really great filling the low end of other 4 speakers. I had the 4 speakers hooked up to a 4 ch. Kenwood app that easily tucks in small places (golf cart radio console had perfect spot for it and then the powered bazooka tube and it sounds awesome for being a small sub. So if ur wanting to save space then the bazooka tube is great but do research on other powered subs that can fit under seats and may be beneficial and check reviews and ask more questions but the bazooka tube does sound nice for its size

I bought one for my Toyota truck and it works better than any base speaker I have ever owned. It comes with straps attached to base plates that can be screwed into a wood base or whatever. Two of these would be AWESOME. I would definitely buy two of these the next time I build a great truck stereo, Randy H DSD
