    ive got a pioneer premiere headunit and was just looking for a little bit of shove in my trunk. im not worried about award winning quakes coming from the back, just enough decent bass to cruise with.

    are these dependable and decent enough to buy? i wont need an amp with this would i?

    You won't need an amp but the sound is a little boomy and not clear (for me atleast).

    dude, throw a 10" sub in there with a small 150W amp for like $150 for both, and call it a day. It would sound so much better. If you need help looking for an amp and a sub I can help you.

    bass tubes as stated before stink - and bazooka is a stinky brand - the tube idea has some benifits to it - but for the most part - bass tubes are over priced underpowered junk - they play one note very well - everything else other than that one note sound like mud on a speaker - just crap.

    you do need to amplify some bass tubes with an external amplifier - but other basstubes have a built in amplifier that requires a small amp hookup kit to install (just some power wires and crap.

    what do you want me to hook you up with an amp and sub?

    ok... lets see..

    http://www.cardomain.com/item/KIC03TCVR102

    Pertty good sub for the price, and it comes with an enclosure. You could buy the sub and enclosure separtly but it would be a little more pricy...

    For the amp: http://www.cardomain.com/item/BOSRT850

    This will give you about 400W since the sub is a 2 ohm.

    Sub total, about $150... w/o shipping
