bgredjeep I removed the bazooka tube from my Jeep a couple weeks ago. It takes a little too much room in the Jeep since I swapped to the auto trans (interfered with the shifter a bit, and also made it hard to reach my battery switch). I picked up an Alpine under seat sub to replace it. I'm mounting the new sub on the back panel between my seats.

Here's a shot comparing the size of the 2 units. I'll post another picture once I get the panel reinstalled tomorrow.

Sprungover bazooka makes marine versions.

samgupta I think one of the cool option is to add a small underseat subwoofer to compliment your jeep radio. This could be small but good enough to create good bass. I have a personal liking for - JBL Bass Pro SL. I loved it for small size but solid sound output.

Give it time to break in. I have been abusing mine for a year and it took quite a while to loosen up.

bgredjeep I installed an 8" 100w bazooka tube in my jeep to compliment the wake tower speakers. It sounds great and fills in the low range well.

How thick is that one? I don't think it would fit with my fuel cell. It probably wouldn't sound good right up to an aluminum tank either.

nbmarti2 Has anyone used the amplified Dual 8"sub? The one that is pre-enclosed and illuminated? It looks like very easy set up and from what I can tell decent quality. Also around $90 which I can part with

Firefyter-Emt I have been running the Sound Ordnance sub from Crutchfield. I did have to make a nice mounting system, but I wanted it off the floor and firing down. The plate I made is an overkill, but that's just my fussy nature! However, this sub really packs a punch and I do not regret it in the least! I am running Polk Audio in the dash and sound bar. It's a great combo. Here are some photos. My one dislike is that theh did not provide mounting holes. Now, you could just drill holes in the flange I used to clamp it down with, but I didn't want to do that. This was a great install and really hides under the seat, Plus it's pretty safe against a heavy rain storm.

Norcal_chris I like that box. I have some wakeboard speakers but a little thump would be nice. That thing would fit perfect mounted to the bottom of my cage

Chrisnvegas Dust hasn't been an issue. I do occasionally blow out the inside of the Jeep with the air comp.

I have had a Bazooka. The Bazooka is more powerful, but not that much. Not for the size difference. I can't bring myself to buy the off brand stuff like Boss audio. They always disappoint me. This has not disappointed me and it isn't taking up any useable space like behind the rear seat. That is where my tools and spares are.

When you first hook it up the woofer is still tight and the bass will not be that good. After an hour or so of use the woofer will loosen up and start rocking. This has been the case with all of us that has this subwoofer.

Randonexplosion Thanks for the pics Chris! I'm gonna pic one up next payday. Glad to hear it will live through the abuse. No issues with dust settling on it?

I have Kicker 6x9s on the rear fenderwells. I've been looking at doing the newer TJ sound pods over head since my cage won't allow a standard soundbar. Or maybe I'll put some speakers back in the dash.

Chrisnvegas Kinda dusty under there. The sub works very well. Especially for it's size. I have a sound bar with Pioneer 6x9's in it. It's the only 6x9 sound bar that I know of. The 6x9's do a better job than those 4" speakers.

I'll go take some pics and load them. Back in a few.


It comes with metal tabs on the corners and I used self tapping screws through the floor on two opposing corners. Those are work gloves stuffed under the seat.







This is where I mounted the controller.




The controller is velcroed on to a metal plate I screwed into place so I can move it if needed.


I have had it for over a year. No problems and can handle serious abuse. (Campfires in the desert with lots of friends and cold ones)
