    New subs... Or old subs...

    Ok so I have two DVC Bazooka tubes 500 watts RMS each...

    The two tubes really take up a lot of trunk space, but they also make it a ***** to get to my tire well if i have to get a spare out of there...

    If I were to take the subs out of the tubes and maybe mount them in a fiberglass box at the side of the trunk would that still sound as good as the tubes?

    Here's a pic so you see what I'm talking about.

    Leave that crap alone. With the right box you can get one sub to sound as good as two subs. Bazooka tubes aren't meant to be used

    I don't have plans to replace the rockford 300 watt amp. So i'm gonna go with either JL or Audiobahn... Suggestions are welcome.

    One that's matched to the speakers that are going into the box.
    There is no 'one size fits all' perfect enclosure.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    get one of the new W3V3's, 10/12 W6V2's.. I don't think your 300 watt amp would be good enough for the W7s

    Look into Stereo Integrity, Incriminator Audio, RE Audio. Stay away from mainstream brands like JL and RF.
