    I was thinking about getting a set of the 10" bazooka bass tubes. Has anyone ever heard them perform. I was wondering if they were worth the money or would i be better off building a box and putting some subs in it.

    The bass tubes do okay, but the box with a good quality sub will sound better.

    I had an amplified 10" in an integra. Did great for the price and convienence. A custom box will always be better, but for quick and easy it was nice. Look on eBay, they used to have some good deals on those.

    Had a 10" Zook in a nissan hatchback years ago, had a Punch 150 driving it and it would rattle your teeth... small car though. recently I have a 6.5 Zook in the wifes Furd Ranger extracab and it adds a real nice range of bass for a daily driver, just kicks it up a notch.

    Two 10s with some clean power would prolly give you alot of easy (no box to build) bass.

    If you don't mind muddy and distorted bass then get some tubes. Tubes are designed to resonate at certain frequency along with it's harmonics. They don't give you a true reproduction of the lows. It's sort of like a mechanical amplifier for lows to overcome an inferrior electrical amplifier.
