Welcome to the forum. You wont be disappointed, the digital amp Bazooka's are going to be awesome!! Will you be running a slave unit (BT604)? I only ask out of curosity, and to make sure that you realize the tubes are 130 watts rms at 4 ohms and 250 at 2 ohms. Either route, you just can't go wrong with a Bazooka, I love them. I stopped trying to buy vehicle specific enclosures and designing my own enckosures after I first purchased an EL8A years ago. I also love the way that they look, you just can't beat them!!

I think i will definitely add a second tube later.
I'm curious to see the reviews of a single BTA6250D compared to the BTA6200.

Seems like to take full advantage of the 6250D you need to add that second passive tube.

Most of all the Digital Amplifiers are designed for a 2 ohm load, so in a sense you are correct. Your are headed in the right direction though, 2 6" tubes will sound awesome in the cab of your truck. Other than the efficiency of the Class D versus the BTA6200 MOSFET, you gain an additional 50 watts, and the ability to add a slave unit, which I do believe was not an option with the BTA6200. You can call Tech, 1-800-THE-TUBE, or PM the forum wizard, rainmanspl, the guy is a car audio genius, check out his bio.

The single tube alone performs extremely well. The amplifier is a true dynamic match for the driver (which is the same sub in the 6014). The power rating is rms and is rated at or below 1%THD. At 4ohms under high volume conditions, it would not be unlikely to see dynamic peaks of 200+wrms at 3-4%THD. (most humans cannot distinguish distortion till it reaches gross amounts of 8-10%) Adding a second tube will give you twice the power and cone area resulting in a 6dB gain. That is where the perception of the need for a second driver is created.
It's like drugs; you always end up needing more for the same result as the first time.

That is the "bottom" line! You can never have enough after you have been bitten by the Car Audio Bug. I do find that Bazooka does seem to always have my fix!

We call it "Car Audio Herpes" here. Regardless of treatment or remission time, you will have the occasional outbreak.

Isn't that the truth, Feeling low never sounded so good. (not my original quote by the way)

And from now on that vibration in the seat won't be just because you farted.

Another great quote! I am going to start keeping a journal of all of your quotes, and after I have 365 or 366 for Leap Year, I am going to make a rainmanspl quote of the day calendar.
