i have the bazooka sub and upgraded speaker package. if i get a petter amp( than the 100 watt it xcame with) will it make my sub sound better, and my speakers? and does anyone know what the upgraded speakers are? what brand?
I believe the stock box is ported ( correct me if im mistaken) and probably not ported well so you couldn't efficently use it. The new sub would sound airy. On top of that I doubt you have very much depth which means that you can't put a decent sub in there. You would be much better off building a sub enclosure on your own to match a new sub. Do fiberglass and follow the mold of the original enlcosure then you can maximize volume
Heres what my friend did before he totalled his Tc (he has and f150 now)
Replaced the stock bazooka 10" with a JL Audio 10W3v2. Amped it with 250 watts (it can handle 300) and had 65 watts going to components up front and coaxials in the rear (6 1/2's)
Using the stock Tc sub enclosure, (which BTW was designed by bazooka from the ground up..) this was probably one of the finest systems I have ever heard.....and I am audiophile to the hilt. bass extension was clean and tight. I swear anybody who got in that car thought he had a 15 back there. he wasn't even going for volume...just clarity and imaging. ...but this thing was loud. (he was running out of a sony head unit with 4v out.......He later added an old sony Xe744 eq that basicly sh!t canned his voltage (output was less than a volt) and it sounded even better. go figure. He still had to back off the sub. So, it is possible to get some good crack from that enclosure...but I think it takes the right combo of power and woofer......I would like to see someone try a high power free air application in that thing......
