Help 0003 Add 10" passive to BTA10250D 250w?

Hello,

I received the powered 250w BTA10250D with remote crossover and wires for Xmas. Prior to having this intalled, I am considering adding the BT1014 Passive Bass Tube (so it can be tuned and set-up correctly). How much will the sound benefit with the passive speaker? I drive a 2007 Jetta, will this take too much trunk space? What is the best placement for both speakers if I add it.

Also, for install... I am considering the Best Buy / Magnolia next to Best Buy's corporate office. However, I like working with small businesses. Does anyone know a better pro install location in the Minneapolis St Paul area?

Thank you!

There will be a significant benefit in the low bass region by adding the additional Tube. As for the room, take the measurements of the 250D and double that. It is best to place the Tubes side by side firing into the taillights of the vehicle.

As for installers, the local phone book or word of mouth is going to be the best bet. An authorized Bazooka dealer or installer will be the ideal shop to install the Tubes since they will have experience with the unique requirements of the Tube when it comes to placement.

Thanks, I realize that it is personal preference. I just can't decide if the second speaker is worth losing the additional trunk space (as I have not even heard the single speaker and feel best to make the decision prior to install). I will remove the BTA/250w from the box and check the space for 2 in the trunk.

Any other ideas on the bennefit of the additional 10" passive vs having the one speaker. The Jetta currently has premium sound. I listen to a variety of music... eminem, techno, Sinatra, Beasty Boys, Rage against the machine. Yes or no in your opinion. It's more about the improved quality vs loss of trunk space. Not concerned about the extra money.

Thanks again!

In my opinion, I would add the slave unit, but again, that is my opinion based on my taste and preference.

With all that being said, install the single 250D and at a later date you can always install the additional Tube.

Thank you, I just ordered the BT1014 on Amazon for about $130 and scheduled the install of both speakers and crossover remote for Saturday Jan 7. Appreciate the help / advice!
