This is my first post in the audio/visual section. i just had my car broken into this weekend and they made off with 2 10" in a box and my 500W RF amp. They tried to pry my deck but were unsuccseful. So basically i need a new setup. My previous setup was great... almost too great. it would hit a lot harder than i needed it to and i tuned it down alot.
I've heard the good and the bad about bass tubes. I'm not lookin to shake the freeway as i'm driving. All i want is a nice deep bass sound INSIDE the car for my music. i've seen different setups and heard a 10" bass tube in my friends CRX and it wasnt bad at all.
I have an FC with the hatch cover. has anyone had any experiences with these at all. I dont care what car you own. i'd just like to hear some opinions and experiences. i like the fact the its small and could make great bass inside the car and thats all i need. just lookin for previous experiences or pro advice. thanks for your help

Deep bass and bass tube are antonymous. All experiences I have had in several cars is hollow sound and poor response. It is possible to get a 10 or 8 in a small enclosure and get some smooth bass without sacrificing too much space.
I had a 10 inch bazooka bass tube in my car before the original sub blew. It was really decent. It hit deep and punchy bass really well and didnt rattle the hell out of the car. I now have a 12inch JL sub in a sealed box and i dont find it as good. I think because of the hatch and the way its shaped a bass tube could produce more optimal sound rather than a traditional mounted sub in a box facing forwards or backwards. You should really search and see about sound deadining and the best way to mount a sub for optimal sound. For quality of bass I guess its also dependant on how good of a woofer you buy and its enclosure.
my setup may be a bit more than your looking for, but i've got a Boston G5 10 fiberglassed into the drivers side storage bin cubby, and i'm running it off of a GT-22 amp. it's a really nice setup, nice tight accurate bass and doesn't take up much room. really a SQ sub, but if you ask it it's more than respectable in the SPL department. a friend of mine who has listened to my car made the comment "Ok, Boston owns my soul now". everything in my car is boston, but that's for another thread.
The design never really did anything for me. I rate the basstube design as a low Meh...
Your better off with a sealed 10'', much more precise in my opinion.
Hell now that I think about it get a shallow mount 10 and do a nice little squeeze setup. Hmmm I need to start selling my boxes in the internet. I love money
