BT Series 10" 4-ohm Bass Tube®
Our take on the Bazooka BT1014 by Crutchfield's Steven Johnson
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.
BT1014 10" Bass Tubes® enclosure
The BT1014 Bass Tube features a 10" polypropylene woofer with a twin-layer compressed foam surround for smooth excursion. The 4-layer voice coil ensures reliable power handling for plenty of punch, and its 4-ohm impedance allows you to power multiple tubes with a single amp. The tube design eliminates standing bass waves for accurate response and high efficiency. Find a good spot for a Bazooka Bass Tube in your vehicle and you'll still enjoy plenty of cargo room.
Bass Tubes enclosures 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.

Great product as always with Bazooka. Smooth, loud, deep bass.

Overview: The BT1014 features a water-resistant poly enclosure that houses a 10" poly woofer with a foam surround. The patented Bass Tube enclosure design eliminates bass standing waves for high accuracy, and superior efficiency.
5-Way Binding Posts: The 5-way binding posts will accept bare wire, pin connectors, spade lugs, banana plugs, and dual banana plugs.
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.

Why did you buy this?
Bass tubes are tried and true, compact, and sound great [ Adam Apr 11, 2017 ]
I like it [ Greg Dec 15, 2015 ]
3 questions already asked
This is determined by what your amp will put out to this woofer and you buy accordingly. So check the specs on the amp output to the woofer. [ johnny Apr 06, 2016 ]
THe 4 has more power [ SAMUEL Apr 06, 2016 ]
the amount of load that the speaker can handle from the amplifier. typically amps are stable down to 4ohms, many high end ones are stable to 1 ohm load. If you don't match your speakers up to the load of the amp then you are going to fry something. stick with a 4 ohm speaker if you can. [ wesley Apr 06, 2016 ]
Yes, to get the most out of it. It will play without one but probably won't sound as good. [ johnny Apr 06, 2016 ]
yes, i would add an amplifier to get the best sound from it and chose an amplifier that has the recomended wattage. be sure to use the right wires gauges too. Enjoy! [ JOSEPH Feb 12, 2015 ]
Yes, it requires an amp. You need to check the speaker to see how big of an amp you'll need to push the speaker. Crutchfield sells a large number of different sizes. Check the product before purchasing an amp is my best advice. The speaker information will tell you the minimum and maximum amps required. [ Greg Jan 31, 2015 ]
I use a kicker 300 watt amp for this product which I have bridged. Its a perfect size for just one bt1014 and enough power for even 2. [ Guest Jan 29, 2015 ]
Yes you would need to use an amp. The sound a sub will produce takes more power then a normal speaker. [ JOHN C Jan 29, 2015 ]
I do have an it amplified [ Steven Jan 29, 2015 ]
Yes. It's a 500W Alpine. W/ bass knob. The amp is under the front passenger seat and the Bazooka is strapped up against the 3rd row back rest. The knob is hidden near the driver's seat. I set the knob until the bass is almost too loud, then adjust it as needed thru my stock deck bass settings. I don't want the whole neighborhood to hear it. Hope that helps. [ Douglas Jan 29, 2015 ]
Yes [ Drew Jan 29, 2015 ]
Yes you will need an amp the tube is not powered. The better the amp the better the tube will sound. [ Gary Jan 29, 2015 ]
Yes it is not powered [ JUSTIN Jan 29, 2015 ]
Do you need a amp for this or can the radio be good enough [ gary Jan 29, 2015 ]
Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp for your subs I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences between the amp models and help you make the best choice for your system. [ Krissy Aug 25, 2014 ] Staff
