tell me how bad I ****** at this?

well this weeken I came across 2 cheap subs (bazooka csw1014)
so I thought I would build a box for them.
I didnt really find any box sizes for them and I dont really understand the stats
I have a old school amp Pioneer GM-H100 running them
here are the stats Power Handling 150 w
Impedance 4 ohms
Sensitivity 88 dB
Frequency Response 16Hz-1500Hz
Recommended Power 50w - 100w (RMS)
Voice Coil Size 1.5 inch
Magnet Weight 30 ounces
Fs 30 Qts .44 Qms 4.11 Qes .49 Vas 2.25 Xmax .75 in. (total xmax) Re 3.4 Le 1.7

so the boxs i put together for them ended up at 1.6 cubicfeet
with a 3" wide 5" deep port
here are some pics

that actually looks really well put together. would probably sound better facing the rear though. nice explorer btw ;)

wiring could be cleaned up a little but i'm guessing you did since the panels are still off in that pic.

The box construction looks very nice. And as long as you're happy with how they sound, that's all that matters. Nice work.

whats the box tuning?

Thanks for supporting a Louisiana-based company!
Box construction looks pretty good, actually.
Certainly more effort than I would have dedicated to a pair of entry-level drivers like those.
Good job! :thumbsup:

Bazooka isn't all that bad for daily driving.

looks good, but what is the box made of.....looks like plywood, if so...good thing those are just some entry level subs....most boxes, as you probably already know, are made of mdf...it doesn't flex like plywood will

but altogether it looks great, nice box, just need to straighten up those wires like you said.
and for $150 altogether, good deal...my subs cost that much by themselves.

looks really nice. good job!

Bazooka isn't all that bad for daily driving.

I don't know how familiar you are with my corner of the state up here...but Shreveport and Bossier City are basically the same town but separated in two by the Red River.

I was at the Pep Boys in Bossier one afternoon getting some headlight bulbs and the fella in line in front of me to checkout was buying himself an entire Bazooka setup less the HU which was one of the lower-end Kenwoods sold at Pep Boys. This consisted of a pair of Bazooka 12s, two sets of Bazooka coaxs, two Bazooka amps, and then the Kenwood HU. All of the afore-mentioned gear was to be tied together with a mass of Lightning Audio wiring and related accessories. I guess nobody ever enlightened this fella that there are other sources of audio gear outside of Pep Boys.
At any rate I watched the cashier ringing all of this guy's audio gear up and it totaled a bit over a $1,100 after it was all said and done.

Some months later I crossed paths with that fella again and he had it all installed and running. I asked him if I could hear what the end result was.
Was it terrible?
No, not completely.
Was it worth what he paid for it?
I think likely not.

I might possibly buy Bazooka gear if I could get a really good deal on it but there's no way I'd pay retail for it. :crap:
Who spends (besides the guy described above) over a grand for stereo gear at PEP BOYS?!?

But! At the end of the day he was supporting a Baton Rouge-based business so I can't be mad about that I don't suppose...

I asked

looks good, but what is the box made of.....looks like plywood, .

the back,sides,top,bottem are 3/4 mdf
I ran out of mdf so for the front i used 3/4 maple plywood
I know i should of used mdf but no stores were open at midnight lol

06-10-2007, 06:08 PM
Box looks good! I think the maple on the front is nice.
Yea, Bazooka aint the best but it'L do. I myself am currently running a single 10" Bazooka. Does ok for now. Here is a box I built for a friend of mine. He bought the stuff and asked me to install it.

Heres My ABC Box .

Keep up the good work!!
