Bazooka Tube Wiring Harness

The Bazooka Tube wiring harness is one of the main reasons this system is so cool. This Harness comes with 4 speaker wires, one set for the left channel and one for the right. This insures that you have the proper polarity and phase for your subwoofer. These speaker wires can be hooked up to either your existing front or your rear speaker wires, but they must be either/or. You can only install them both to the fronts or both of the rears. For those who have an aftermarket radio you also have the option to use RCA input with the Plugins on this harness.

I would recommend that you buy a 10 gauge amplifier wiring kit with your Tube. The wiring harness doesn’t generally work in terms of length of wire to reach your battery and speaker wires. 

The other wires are for power directly from the battery, remote amplifier turn on (tells your tube when to turn on) and the Ground wire. These wires are all cleanly ran from the harness provided by the Bazooka Tube. Simply disconnect the harness if you would like to take it out for big family trip!

Bаzооkа Tubе BT8014 BT Review:  Final ForAudioGeeks Opinion

The Bazooka Tube line is one of the most sold self powered subwoofer enclosure systems on the market today. In my Professional opinion it is in no way high end or premium. But from experience, it lasts just as long as many of the high end systems such as the Kicker Hideaway, Kenwood Ksc-sw11 and the Alpine PWE-S8. The bass quality is good enough to fill a vehicle fairly efficiently and the installation is pretty easy as well.

This unit comes with everything you need to correctly install this system and have it up and running quickly. If you’ve ever installed a subwoofer and amplifier then you know exactly how many components and wires that are needed. One of our secret pro-tips we’ve learned installing this system is that customers tend to want them in multiple vehicles, if you buy a separate harness and install it into your second car you can move your system from car to car easily!
