Default Re: Bazooka tube on a bike?

Thanks Red. Is there any thought or plans of mounting the sub somewhere else besides the rear compartment on the Goldwings? I was thinking it could probably mount nicely underneath the rear compartment with either the straps or brackets. It would be exposed to the outside elements but I believe I saw somewhere there is a neoprene case for the Bazooka tube that would protect it from water and rain. The only drawback to having this sub in the rear compartment is that you loose the majority of precious storage space. The rear compartment will hold 2 full face helmets and a few other odds and ends. With the Bazooka mounted in there, that kills that. Not even room for 1 helmet. This might be a deal breaker for some riders as they may not want to compromise the the cargo space.
Any thoughts on this?

Al, We realize the trunk space is a issue but most people ride more in town then on the open road so the sub is enjoyed more on local runs ,As for mounting outside the Bazooka bass tube is meant to be corner loaded so you would loose alot of bass by mounting it outside of the trunk .I suggest that you use in on local runs and if your going touring simply take it out and you have all your trunk space back .

Enjoy,
Red

Thanks Red. It's not really a problem for me. I have a trailer hitch and access to a Bushtech trailer whenever I need it. I am also adding a quick removal rack that mounts on my hitch that accomodates a luggage bag that will make up for the lost storage space if needed. I'm just saying, some guys may not compromise on the space. I had a friend check it out and he said would not give up the space for the sub as he usually has the rear compartment filled.

Smile Re: Bazooka tube on a bike?

I have done a install on my Yamaha Venture ,,i used a alpine 4 channel amp.and a BTA 8100 bass tube,,the sound is great,,better than alot of cars,,i posted pictures on my profile,,i also removed the factory speakers and installed 4'' polk audio components,,all the way around,,it sounds fantastic,will get you alot of attention and compliments because a motorcycle sound system is'nt suppose to sound that good,,i also have done a few installs on Goldwings,,the only thing is you will lose all of your trunk space,,

Greg,
How about posting those pics in the Garage? You should be able to simply click the Garage link and create entries for your bike. I look forward to seeing them, and thanks for using our products!

Thanks for posting the pictures Greg. You may want to look into using a program like Windows Live Photo Gallery (just one of a few) to assist with re-formatting the rest of your photo's to allow you to post more of them. Nice Venture, have you done any custom work to your bike, besides the addition of the Bazooka?

Talking Re: Bazooka tube on a bike?

I've read the treads here and i'm a little confused,,if you mount an amp in the trunk of a goldwing ,why do you dill only one hole,,motorcycle trunks are ment to be air and water tight, one hole is not enough,,how about drilling about 6-10 holes against the rear panel in your trunk ,behind the rear seat of the goldwing,,not only to vent air into the trunk for the amp,,but also to let out the bass from the tube,,also a 6 1/2 tube is not going to give you a lot of bass,, step up 1 size and go with an 8" it will fit,,and the bass would blow your mind !!!!!!
