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.
The BTA10100FHC Bass Tube package from Bazooka includes a great-sounding amplified subwoofer tube and convenient radio connection kit. With this handy combo, you can enjoy thumping low end with a minimum amount of hassle.
Bazooka's BT Series BTA10100 10" amplified Bass Tubes enclosure gives you the thrill of powerful bass without having to make any permanent modifications, especially handy if you drive a leased vehicle. It features an efficient 10" woofer, a built-in 100-watt amplifier, and mounting hardware. Place the BTA10100 in a convenient spot in your vehicle, connect it to your car stereo, and enjoy some punchy bass while you drive.
The included F.A.S.T. combination from Bazooka features everything you need to hook up the BTA10100 to the factory or aftermarket radio in your vehicle: the F.A.S.T.-9999 universal harness and a 16-foot extension cable. The F.A.S.T.-9999 universal harness uses Posi-Tap connectors and simple, reliable plugs to get the signal from your radio to the Bass Tube — no splicing needed. Hook the other end of the universal harness up to the 16-foot long F.A.S.T.-BTAH extension cable, which you've connected to the BTA10100 in the rear of your vehicle.
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.
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.

Average Customer Review(s):
Great sound, easy install.
Pros: Easy install great sound
Installed in a Jeep TJ. Great product, very easy to install. Almost too much for the small Jeep... almost
Pros: Easy to install and wire up
This is a wonderful product. Very quick delivery. The sound is exactly what i wanted for my jeep wrangler. The stock stereo setup really needed some low end and this speaker accomplished that nicely.
Pros: Great sound for the money. Not too large.
Ok let me start by giving thanks and paying homage to the CS rep from the customer service department. I bought the 8 inch 50 watt powered Bazooka sub and I loved it, however I wanted a tad more bass and also wanted the bass knob control for on the on the spot bass adjustments that are important to me. I exchanged the 8 inch sub for the 10 inch powered sub with the 100 watt amp and all I can say is boom. Night and day difference. My rep made sure that the exchange transaction was flawless. Kudos to her customer service skills, she is an asset to the Crutchfield team SUPERSTAR comes to mind. This tube is perfect for me, I was able to keep my factory radio premium (2013 VW GTI 2 Dr) and all its functions in tact. The FAST wiring is a must unless you go with the more powerful tube. This product again is not going to win any SPL contests or blow you doors off but it does provide great bass to complete the sound spectrum. I listen to all types of music, rap, jazz, gospel, metal etc and this tube place all music well. I hope That this review helps other. If you have a GTI, Golf or Golf R this product is for you.
Cons: It is a little large but what do you expect. I still have a good amount of room in my hatch back area.
Super easy to hook up with gratifying bass. Fits in the extra cab no problem with room for one more if wanted.
Pros: Easy, simple, instant bass for the money with no hassle!
This is exactly what I wanted. I needed something that would add some extra "oomph" to my factory stereo. The sound is great. The product itself is perfect. I was looking for something that I could easily take out when hauling large items in my SUV and would be protected enough when I have my dogs (2 pits and a bull terrier) in the cargo area. I definitely recommend and love Crutchfield. They were great when I ordered the wrong product (without the amp) initially; the return, refund and new purchase were flawless.
Pros: sound quality, ease of use, durability, functionality, quick disconnect.
Amazing sound. Regardless of the Crack and Chipped Paint on the unit. PooR PACKAGING!. You really need to protect these better for transit.
Pros: Amazing Sound - EASY Installation.
Cons: Terrible packaging. Item was damaged cosmetically in transit.
Sound quality is just enough, not to much and not to little. The size of the tube allows me to still have trunk space and it doesn't rattle. Perfect to enhance the sound quality in your vehicle without trying to show off.
Pros: Compact Size Trunk space Sound
Great sub. Sounds awesome and hits hard. Would recommend to everyone
Pros: Nice and deep bass. Fits great in my 94 lt1 camaro
Cons: No cons
This is my first subwoofer, a buddy of mine helped me install it. installation didn't take long. Sounds great not to loud not too quiet 5/5
Pros: Sounds great all around
Cons: Could be louder
This is the 4th bazooka tube, but first amplified one. Overall the sound is incredible. For my tastes the tube is the only way to go. It fits behind the front seat. I have one in a Corolla And just installed the amped one in a Tacoma. Not trying to impress the neighbors but it is an hour commute each way and this helps pass the time. The sound is incredible. Certainly adds the bottom end so the rest of the speakers can do their job and not have to hit the bottom.
Pros: The sound for the space is incredible.
Cons: The amped Bazooka doesn't have the flexibility when compared to a Bazooka run off an amp.
This subwoofer tube is perfect for an add on to factory audio system. It is surprisingly powerful for its size. It's not going to shake your neighbors' Windows when you drive down the street but will give your passengers in the Back seat a nice back massage. Would definetly recommend! Two thumbs up!
Pros: Powerful for it size. Can easily be removed for more trunk space but actually does take up much room at all.
Cons: Make sure you hook up the wire that turns on the tube and remove bypass connector on wire harness and have switch on tube in the correct position or you think you just waisted your money.
Bought the Bazooka BTA10100FHC 10" sub for my wife's 2012 Toyota Rav4. The install was super easy once I found out how to take the dash apart (YouTube video) and get the radio out (easy peasy). The FAST 9999 connectors worked perfectly and were easy to install. Routing the cabling back to the sub in the back was again super easy. There is so much room in the dash and the door sills. The sub sounds good and really does bring that extra 30% of the sound out of the factory stereo. The sub enclosure is solid and beefy. It's big, and we could have probably gotten away with the 8" version, but she likes to really "feel" the boom!! :o)
Pros: Quality product from Bazooka with great sound! Portability between vehicles with the FAST 9999 connectors. Crutchfield customer service / technical advice. Outstanding!!
I ordered the Bazooka BTA10100FHC for my 2015 Ford Fusion Hybrid. Crutchfield does not yet have wiring diagrams for Hybrid models. Although I've been looking forward to increasing the bass in my vehicle, I ended up not installing it after putting it in the trunk for a fit check. I decided I didn't want to try and tap into the factory stereo by trying to figure out which wire is which (don't have diagram for it). Also, It's pretty big and was not willing to compromise the already small trunk space in the Fusion Hybrid. I bet the Bazooka sounds great, but it's definitely not for those with space constraints in their vehicle. I'm rating the product 5 stars because the build of the Bazooka seemed great and the Fast connectors that come with it seem very simple to use, albeit one small confusing point. I did read through the install instructions and only one thing was confusing: The instructions said to connect the power wire directly to the battery using a fused wire (which was not included), but other reviewers and the instructions that came with the FAST connector said to just tap into your stereo's power. I know Crutchfield would be able to clarify any questions with a quick phone call or via e-mail.
Pros: - Seems to be built to last - FAST harness simple to use
Cons: - Not for space constrained vehicles
Perfect and simple addition to the factory audio system. I can actually feel myou music now and sound quality has greatly improved.
Pros: Simplicity and quality.
Cons: Can't think of any...
This purchase is exactly what I was looking for. After replacing my door speakers with 6.5"'s and losing a lot of bass response, I wanted something that would bring it back. This sub does that and then some. It's just as powerful as the two 10" Dual Subs I had back when I was a teenager. Great acoustics, bass response, and low end. The FAST kit that comes with this unit makes it so easy to install. A monkey could do it. No connections to the battery required. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for something that is self powered, easy to install, and looking to even out the low end. If you're looking for something to rattle your neighbors windows though - this isn't the sub for you. My only complaint is the volume control switch costs extra.
Pros: Easy to install Great bang for your buck
Cons: Doesn't come with the control for sub volume- have to purchase separately.
Amazing! Thunderous Bass from a small enclosure! I'd rather have this system than an equivalently sized/powered set of components.
Pros: Ease of installation and overall size.
Cons: None as of yet....

Overview: The Bazooka Bass Amplified Subwoofer Kit (BTA10100FHC) features Bazooka's patented Bass Tube enclosure design. It is a complete subwoofer solution for your truck, SUV, sedan, or hatchback. The kit includes an amplified bass tube, a Fast-harness, and an extension harness.
Bass Tube Type Enclosure: The Bazooka subwoofer's patented Bass Tubes bass-reflex enclosure design allows for use of 100% of the woofer's cone area.
10" Woofer w/ 100-Watt Amp: The Bazooka BTA10100FHC features an extremely efficient 10" woofer, coupled to a 100-watt amplifier for a frequency response of 39Hz to 85Hz.
Corner Loading: The Bazooka Bass Tubes enclosure is optimized for corner loading. The Bass Tube enclosure's port and woofer are on the same plane and in close proximity for maximum corner-loading results. The corner of your car amplifies the concentrated bass output of the Bass Tube enclosure.
F.A.S.T. Harness: F.A.S.T. is an innovative universal harness system that allows you to integrate the Bazooka subwoofer into the vast majority of factory and aftermarket sound systems. The included FAST-9999 universal harness uses the patented Posi-Tap connector from Posi-Products for making fast, secure connections to your OEM/aftermarket headunit's wire harness. The included FAST-BTAH extension harness is routed from the Bazooka Tube location to the radio; one end connects to the FAST-9999 universal harness, and the other end to the amplified bass tube. The extension harness also contains RCA line level inputs (at the radio end) and a ground wire which will need to be grounded to the metal chassis of your vehicle.
Note: The FAST-9999 universal harness features the following wire leads - Red (+12V), Blue/White (Remote turn-on), White (LF+), White/Black (LF-), Gray (RF+), and Gray/Black (RF-).
Signal Inputs: The included FAST-BTAH extension harness has line level (male RCA plugs) and speaker level (Posi-Tap connectors on the FAST-9999 harnes) inputs.
Mounting Straps: The BTA10100FHC comes with straps to keep the bass tube securely mounted, while still making removal quick and easy if you need more cargo room.

Powered sub that sounds better then separate amp and woofer. [ ERNEST T Dec 14, 2015 ]
The answer to your question is you can do one of two things........Buy the power supply kit or just buy an appropriate length and gauge piece of wire and an inline fuse holder,I opted for choice #2 and did it myself but that's totally up to you !!! Hope this was a help for you. [ WILLIAM Jan 30, 2017 ]
You do not need a power wire to the battery The wire harness takes care of all.. [ Barry Jan 30, 2017 ]
Harness takes care of all power needs. I've had mine installed for awhile with no problems. [ ROBERT Jan 30, 2017 ]
Yes, you need the power wire kit with inline fuse. [ Todd Jan 30, 2017 ]
It comes with a harness to connect to the battery and speaker outputs [ GARY Jan 30, 2017 ]
The harness has everything you need to hook it up. [ Mr. Jan 30, 2017 ]
Yes it comes with a wiring kit to wire it up 2 different ways [ Mr. Dec 07, 2016 ]
You can install a second powered Bazooka tube in your vehicle is you have the space for it, sure. The BTA10100FHC comes packaged with their F.A.S.T. harness you can use for the power, ground and signal leads. You will find this information, and more, by clicking the "Details" tab on the Bazooka's main webpage and scrolling down below the "Features & Specs" table. I hope that helps.

Tube comes with nylon cinch straps and two plastic bases. It works out pretty well and is secure. If you want metal you will need to fabricate something. [ Jon Mar 25, 2015 ]
the fasteners are metal but the strap is nylon [ Russell Mar 24, 2015 ]
It comes with straps and plastic strap holders that screw into the floor. [ Jerome Mar 24, 2015 ]
It probably could. I'm sure the 8 inch one would. Might check the dementions and measure, haven't been in an f150 in awhile so I'm not really sure. Hope that helps :) [ TODD May 01, 2014 ]
I think so. I have a silverado 2005 and it perfect. The 8in anyway. The 10 will n o t fit. I tried. [ JEREMIAH May 01, 2014 ]
It should, maybe with the ported side facing forward instead of on top, can't really remember the exact dimensions of the tube but I think its less than 16 inches tall [ AARON May 01, 2014 ]
Not sure. At first glance it looks like it might fit if the high top part of the bazooka is leaning on the floor. It would be tight for sure and might stick out from under the seat where your feet sit. It doesn't hurt to try. I bought two of these to use behind the 3rd row seat of a dodge Durango and in the trunk of a Acura TL. Crutchfield's returns are simple and hassle free. [ LEANDRA May 01, 2014 ]
