Default A little Extra Boomer = Bass Tube Time?

I had this laying around from a previous car that I had mounted in the trunk.
This Urban blaster is about 150 Watts if I remember right, and may fit well on inside of rear deck/window area of the Park Ave.
About 17 inches long & 8.5 tall, going to bring it out to the PA and see how it fits one day soon...ha ha..

I had better bolt this thing down good, otherwise things are gonna shake!

It has a nice cross over that you can switch to a bit more mid range if you want, and it'* own volume control.

Anyone else have one of these in their rides?

I use to. It didn't have the "punch" I wanted. So I upgraded to two 12" subs. Much better.

IMO, They are not worth the money or time.

I bet those 12 inch subs must really kick!
Maybe it is time to remove the rear seat of the PA eh?
I tried fitting it in the rear window tonight, fits but barely.

There really is not much room from rear of tube to window.
Also the bottom bracket sits too far forward, and block the rear window big time. Could modify the front mount though.
Does not look too bad from the outside...

IDK maybe I will put it in the 4x4..??

i have not had one myself, i have heard them though. really any ported setup like that or the big square ones with tuned ports all sound boomy at the low end, like quiet down to a certain point then very loud. they are good for rap and competition type stuff. i would rather have full range bass sound. which is accomplished by having a 10 or 12 in a appropriately sized sealed box or boxes, and having the proper tune. the kicker subs i have, have the stiffening ridges, i made the boxes to their proper air specs, the amp is a more full stereo amp, and the setting are higher frequencies to bridge more toward the midrange area



cant beat the price though, might install it and see if you like it or not
