Amplified Bass Tube?

Has anyone added a Bazooka amplified tube or maybe an "under seat " amppified bass speaker? Looking to simply improve bass.

I know it's not a tube, but I had a small amp and a 10" sub added to my trunk. Made a huge improvement.

Chris, Thanks but I have no room in the trunk which is why the tube or under seat is being considered.

Understood, Car Toyz showed me an amp/sub combination that was in a box that they said would fit under the seat. I'll see if I can find the name of it.

It's called the Kicker Hideaway. 8" compact sub and amp. Might be something to check out.

I have looked at them. If I remember correctly they are only around $150. You don't get mind blowing bass, but you do get a decent low end.

On Crutchfield, they start around $169 and go up from there depending on the brand. I did not get to listen to one, but the sales guy said they sale a lot of them.

I've heard em. Adds a little punch, but very little under the 3-400hz range. Great to richen the sound a little, but that's about it. If you don't have the space for a good sub setup, a high quality component set with a high quality 4 channel amp can do wonders. If you go with something capable of handling a nominal of 80-120 watts you will be surprised with the lows you can achieve. I've run a couple JL, and Rockford setups that had had everyone thinking there was a good 10 in the trunk.

Got s quote on the Focal UBS 2.1 under seat subwoofer yesterday. ~$1000, more than I can justify spending. There is a little shelf in the back of the trunk that looks to be the perfect size for a 6.5" 100W Bazooka powered subwoofer (BTA6100). Crutchfield has it for $175. A little bottom end punch is all I am looking for.

Tuscon, what do you have now? I had the base model with 4 6x8/5x7's I swapped them out with entry level Focals and think a small line level powered sub would be the missing part. Bass is real weak with what I have and just a little something to fill in lower freq's would be huge (in my mind) let us know.

fwiw I listen to everything and just want decent sound.

Pretty similar but I just replaced my front speakers with Focals. And agree that even though they are much better than the OEMs, I am craving a bit more bass. I will keep this thread updated. Thanks.

Chris, I put the Kicker Hideaway in my 2014 Mustang yesterday and it sounds great. It fits under the passenger seat and the bass control knob is mounted under dash to the left of the steering wheel. It really awakens up the bass, just what I hoped for. Cost was $350 + tax installed. Great recommendation, thanks.

You're welcome, I'm glad it worked out for you.
