Default Bazooka Tubes in Boats?

After reading that article in Powerboat, it sounds like a low Cost way to Improve my Stereo!!! Has anyone used them in their Boats?? Easy to install?? more important , DO THEY KICK A$$??

Thanks!!! Mitchell

Tricky,, Did you have yours in the Cockpit somewhere, or under a Seat? I removed my Fresh Water Tank from under the Back Seat, and was wanting to mount it there

Yes, i had it under the back seat, it secured with two small plastic brackets with two screws each and then it has straps that wrap around the tube and go through the brackets. How much room do you have? they say it works best about 2 " from a corner or wall. My tube was a 10" base tube non amplified. I still have it i could measure it for you if you need to know the size.......

The sub that comes in those is crap. Put a decent one in there and your fine.

Thanks Tricky, I got their Specs. off the Net, and should have the perfect amount of space!! Did you cut out any Holes for the sound to escape? I will probably go with the Amped. version.

Hyper,, you sd the Sub,, do you mean the Speaker itself??

all that bass, in my opinion is not too natural sounding.
Will your motor hatch then vibrate like the lowrider Honda's trunk I see at stop lights?
Yellowbird,

There are A LOT of members that have stereos in their boats. I would say a majority of us have upgraded sound systems in our boats. You have to remember, we're not fishing out of them.

There are a couple of members that make their living off of installing and selling these systems to people like us. We proudly support them whenever possible.

I think you'll find that most of us would rather have it than not have it.

Buck
