Your Guide To Buying a Bass Tube

By Yehudah Posnick

    If you want to listen to more than just the news when you're driving, your auto must be equipped with good speakers. You could have full-range speakers, which are able to handle the full range of music. But then there are separate speakers for the different ranges: woofer for the low tones (60 Hz to 250 Hz), tweeter for the high tones (2 kHz to 20 kHz), and midrange speakers. There is also a subwoofer, which treats the lowest frequencies (20 Hz to 120 Hz). But subwoofer speakers take up space, and you might not be able to install them in your car. Bass tubes are the answer. They are cylindrical subwoofers, only 12” in length, and around 2” in diameter, that can be installed easily into most automobiles—usually in the back seats, or in the trunk. But there still are a lot of varieties of bass tubes.


    We've put together this work light buyer's guide to help you select the best bass tubes that answers to your needs. It'll help you:

    1. Choose the right type of bass tube,

    2. See useful tips about that type of bass tube,

    3. Read reviews of different brands of bass tubes, and what customers are saying,

    4. Select the right brand of bass tube, and

    5. Compare prices and find the best deals.

    • Needs Separate Amplifier:The low-power audio signals from the car stereo's head unit (HU, for short) need to be boosted to be heard over speakers. These are also called “unpowered speakers”. You can find bass tubes which require separate amplifiers--you connect the Head Unit to the amplifier with RCA cables. Kenwood's P-W130TB is a bass tube that comes with a separate amplifier that you attach yourself.

    • Built-in amplifiers: But there are also bass tubes with built-in amplifiers, so you have one less piece of hardware to buy. These are also called “powered speakers”. The Bazooka BTA6100 BT Series bass tube has a 100 Watt amplifier on-board.

    Based on all the consumers' reviews we've scanned, these are the top things they mentioned about their new stuff:

    • Comes with a wiring kit: You have to be prepared to do the wiring yourself to connect the bass tube to your stereo. Rockville makes a separate wiring kit that you can buy in order to run the bass tube. Otherwise, you may have to buy wires and RCA jacks yourself. It might also require you to drill some holes and splice wires as well.

    • Feeling vibrations: People like the Bazooka BT8024DVC Bass Tube because it doesn't only amplify the sound, but even is able to let the people in the car feel the “rattling” from the speakers—sort of like Sensurround for car stereo equipment.

    • Power of the speakers: You'll see speakers rated in Watts. The manufacturer will list the Peak Power, and the RMS power of the speakers. The RMS (“root mean square”) power is what power can the speaker handle for an extended period of time. The peak power is the maximum power that the speaker can handle, in short bursts of sound. For example, the Rockville RTB80A Bass Tube has 400 Watts of peak power, and 200 Watts of RMS power.

      Note: Don't try to exceed the peak power—it can destroy the speakers. The coil inside the speaker will rattle so much, it could easily get detached from the speaker.

    • Frequency: Another specification is the frequency response of the speakers: As we mentioned, subwoofers take the low frequencies. But they can also go to higher frequencies as well, as much as 300 Hz.

    Rockford Fosgate—was founded by Jim Fosgate in 1973, and have their headquarters on Rockford Drive in Tempe, Arizona (hence the name of the company). They are makers of amplifiers and speakers for automobiles, boats, motorcycles, as well as speaker accessories.

    Bazooka—was formed in 1983 as part of Southern Audio Services, based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. SAS were makers of home audio loudspeakers, but then the president, Jon Jordan, felt that there was a need for good speaker systems for automobiles. He thus developed the Bazooka brand of subwoofers.

    Rockville—are makers of bass tubes, powered speakers and speaker enclosures, microphones, subwoofers, amplifiers, car TV monitors and computer accessories. Their products are intended for use in cars, boats, and motorcycles.

    Pyle—was founded in 1960 as manufacturers of high-quality woofers. They specialize in replacement speakers and car audio, including amplifiers and head units. They make speakers for cars, boats, the home, and professional musicians.

    Kenwood—is a Japanese electronics company founded in 1946 in Tokyo, Japan. The US subsidiary was founded in 1961, and has its headquarters in Suwanee, Georgia. They are makers of equipment for car and home entertainment. They make navigation electronics, dashboard cameras, receivers, amplifiers, speakers, and more.
