Our take on the Bazooka BTA8250D by Crutchfield's Charlie Pastorfield
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.
BTA8250D 8" amplified Bass Tube
Bazooka's BTA8250D 8" amplified Bass Tube lets you add ride-filling bass to your system, whether you drive your own vehicle or a leased car. Its 8" woofer combines with a built-in Class D 160-watt amp to delivers strong bass without taking up extra space. A variable low-pass filter allows you to tune the bass output to match up with your vehicle's sound system. You'll also get an installation kit that includes a power/signal harness, 20-amp fuse with holder, straps, and mounting hardware.
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.
Double your fun
Want to double your bass? You can connect a second passive Bazooka Bass Tube to the built-in amp for a serious boost in bass response. 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 tube.
Just right for what i was looking for. Won't blow the neighborhood away but perfect for sound in the car.

Overview: The BTA8250D features a water-resistant poly enclosure that houses a 8" poly woofer with a foam surround. The woofer is powered by a built-in 160-watt digital amplifier. The patented Bass Tube enclosure design eliminates bass standing waves for high accuracy, and superior efficiency.
Additional Sub: A second passive Bazooka tube can be added to the system (item number 204BT8014, sold separately), and powered by the amplifier built into the BTA8250D. The included signal harness has speaker output wires.
Low-pass Filter: The BTA8250D has a low-pass filter that can be adjusted from 60 to 250 Hz.
Remote Level/Crossover Control: Using an optional remote control (item number 204RBCM250, sold separately), you can control the bass output level and crossover frequency of the subwoofer from a remote location.
Level Control: There is a rotary control on the rear-panel that allows you to adjust the level of the subwoofer.
Crossover Control: The unit's rotary control is found on the rear-panel and allows you to adjust the low-pass filter from 60 to 250 Hz.
Power LED: If power, ground and remote are connected properly, the LED on back of the unit will illuminate in green.
Remote Control: Phone-type jack for use with an optional remote control; found on rear-panel
Power Harness: Two quick-slides for use with supplied power harness; found on rear-panel
Signal Harness: 14-pin Molex plug for use with supplied signal harness
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.
- Power Wire: The 12-gauge power lead is only 11" 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 12-gauge ground lead is also only 23" 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 to connect the remote turn-on lead to the amplifier turn-on lead of your radio

Why did you buy this?
I find this to be the best buy for the money. It also fits my needs. [ Derrick Jun 19, 2017 ]
This will work quite well in my new Nissan Murano as a low sub for my installed bose 9 speaker system.Give me extra low punch at 80hz and below. [ Edward Mar 06, 2017 ]

1 question already asked
What do you mean? In the overview under (double your fun) it states that you can connect a passive bazooka to this powered unit to "double your fun!" Will this double the power? [ Drew.. Feb 18, 2015 ]
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: You would want to connect another powered Bazooka tube to this unit as it would not actually power a 2nd unit. You can use two of this very same model or any other powered Bazooka. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.
