Anyone put a Bazooka tube under the back seat yet? If so what size?

Re: Bazooka Tube

A 10 inch will not fit. I tried the other day just for fun. The 10 inch ones have an outer dimension of 10.3 something inches. You can barely fit something 10 inches under the seat - in the spot where there is an indent in the plastic at the bottom of the seat. Too bad, because the new Bazooka tubes are not that shabby. People make fun of Bazooka Tubes, but for the convenience and price, they can't be beat. I think the 8 inch models are stretching it as far as sound quality is concerned. Then again, I haven't heard one in an RL. However, it would still be miles better than the stock subs.

Tried that, but pot laced with Crystal Meth seems to do the trick................

BTW, we grow the best here. Called BC Bud. Ask for it by name.

Re: Bazooka Tube

I was not impressed with the stock sub so tried a couple of experiments. I had all these parts already, 8 inch Bazooka EL – passive model (98 model), 10 in Bazooka Reference Series (RS) – passive model (also a ’98 model), a US Acoustics 300 watt amp, a high-level converter and lots of wiring. I also had access to a newer 10-inch RS Bazooka that my brother had put in his Wakeboard boat.

I first tapped into the sub’s wiring behind the back seat before it went into the enclosure. From there, to the high-level converter, then RCAs to the amp (under passenger seat) then back to factory sub. Surprisingly the factory sub handled the extra clean wattage and sounded a lot better. So I wondered how the 8 and 10 inch Bazookas would sound. The 8 inch EL sounded much better than the stock sub and fit under the seat. But for poops and giggles, I tried the 10 RS, which sounds superb. It has more than adequate output (you can feel your hair moving when cranked up) and good extension, with a tight-accurate response. It wedges nicely between in tightly but the 40% split seat has to be raised. When the dog comes with us we put the seat down and move the sub in front of the seat. When we need to use the back seat for humans we move the 10 incher out and put in the 8 inch EL, that’s been waiting happily in the trunk for such an occasion. Also, I found that the newer RS Bazookas (passive models) can output more than the older versions but at the cost of sound quality. The new models have stiffer cones with large rubber surrounds, two voice coils, and can handle lots of wattage. The result, though, is lots of air moving but a bit one-notey/flabby sound. If you want to make a lot of noise, a new 10 RS Bazooka with a high quality, high watt amp can do it. I, however, prefer the quality sound, which is many decibles ,more than the stock sub. Also, the models with the built-in amps are not nearly as potent as the passives attached to decent amplification.

Re: Bazooka Tube

TCW or others that have worked with bass tubes and/or the stock sub, where did you gain access to the stock sub wire? Can it be done without removing the back seat? I have an old 8" amplified sub that I want to experiment with but have not yet.

Re: Bazooka Tube

It probably can be done but I don't know how. I got to the wires by following the back seat removal instructions pdf from Collegehillshonda.
