Yeah, I've seen them in Import magazines...I would say it's ricey, but then again sound quality would probably suck too.

:orglaugh: :orglaugh: :orglaugh: Pretty funny though...

I was preoccupied in your mothers bedroom. Ive seen those before. The ones that ChrisV has posted, and also Bazooka tubes with vynils on them.

posted by  newyorker

I don't know. I like the Bazooka tubes normally, and I can't see these sounding different.

But yeah, it's way ricey, as in faking a performance part to look like a race car without adding the performance. No different than a fake intercooler or fake BOV sound generator.

Or fake bonnet scoops :doh:

Correct. There are cheap speakers of this type on the market, and it shows up in the sound. But my son has done many installs of good quality "speaker bottles" for friends and customers and they sound as good as any Bazooka Tube I've run in my cars for years.

P.S. Concerning the item on the auction. Pyle USED to make excellent audio equipment, but in our recent experience perhaps they should change the name to Pile.:wink2:

Stock musclecars have had fake scoops, as have '50s customs. I don't count them as rice.

the scoops on these are fake, and don't do anything:

On that last one, the quarter scoops are fake, too. I can go on...

hell, look at the rear air splitter under the rear bumper of a BMW M3. [i]Its fake! Here's BMW's most famous performance coupe/sedan and it used fake aero parts to look sportier!

He's too ignorant to care and too far into his little hole of worthlessness to realize why he should.

Sorry about your Mom.

posted by  vwhobo

thank you

Pyle makes some of the worst stuff. You're right, they should be called Pile. They got into the whole overrating your amp scene and underbuilding speakers/woofers. At least they price them right though!

All tubes dont sound good to me. But hey, a tubed woofer usually is pretty small (enclosure), which means it's almost like a small sealed box which means it will be better for output rather than SQ. Then again most tubes woofers cant take much more than 200-300rms. Bazooka has certainly gone down in quality over the years (go figure, like the rest of them), they even had P. Miller endorse his own line within the brand...and it all sucks. But is supposed to be the "top of the line" Bazooka.

Sorry to hear about your Mum, Glagon.

newyorker, I strongly suggest that you adjust your attitude unless you want another Ban!

posted by  Cliffy

i say ban him now!!!!!!!

posted by  glagon1979

I second that.



My mom's '69 GTO has fake hood scoops.

Too bad the body on it is in such bad shape now or I would take it. :ohcrap:

posted by  Benson

Well if I knew that I wouldnt have said it. And as far as breaking your hands, im sure they would be broken after I got done with you.

posted by  newyorker

Thing is, this never would of happened if you didn't say it in the first place, whether you know or not. This isn't Elementary school so why why use such childish insults (not just to you Newyorker)? Come on guys, it takes 2 to have an arguement, if no one says anything in the first place then the other can't get worked up and make come backs.

posted by  car_crazy89

you dont know when to stop do you?

posted by  glagon1979

No its you that dont! I apoligized, and you cant get over yourself. I mean look at your sig for lords sake.

posted by  newyorker

i'll take the sig down and stop bothering you when i get a sincere apology, but you haven't done that yet!

posted by  glagon1979

My apoligy WAS sincere. If you cant understand that, then i cant do much. I dont need you to stop talking to me, but stop arguing with me all the time.:thumbs:

posted by  newyorker

man, I wasn't going to get involved in this. But... You followed up a weak apology with a stupid, internet bravado threat:



That makes the apology insincere, and pretty much worthless.

posted by  ChrisV

I believe the apoligy came first. I didnt post it in one place, but many. I think its better if you DONT get involved. :thumbs:

posted by  newyorker

No, you didn't. And it doesn't matter if it came first, it was rendered worthless by IMMEDIATELY following it up with another childish threat. Like you're doing now.



It's a public forum. I can post where I want. You keep up that tough guy swagger and it makes ANY apology completely worthless.

:banghead:

posted by  ChrisV

But I thought this was a place for open discussion? Or is that only when it better suits you? :roll:

posted by  car_crazy89

Since its public, then you and ChrisV can hop off:thumbs:

posted by  newyorker

Better?

posted by  car_crazy89

Dude...any way you look at it, it's your fault...

You didn't make a proper apology, and then started arguing with members for no reason...

I've got nothing against you, but you really need to loosen up a bit...:ohcrap:

posted by  chris_knows

I DID make a proper apoligy. I even sent him a PM.

posted by  newyorker

Alright, that's good...but you can't say for people to get off the forums...just for posting their opinion:ohcrap:

posted by  chris_knows

I meant hopping off of my #^&%:thumbs:

posted by  newyorker

Oh lol..

posted by  chris_knows

Usualy I like you newyorker some times I get fed up but you have gone to far here you should said sorry and left this post alone.

posted by  Aondor

he did make an apology, and without any threats or nasty words. look at my sig.

posted by  glagon1979

OK, problem solved, no more discussion!

Dang, those speakers are hideous...NOS it almost rice when it's real(imho), now people go and FAKE it.....:doh:

We've all seen your picture. We know for damn sure just by looking at you all we would have to do is shove a doughnut in your face and roll you off of a cliff.

posted by  glagon1979

Thanks bro. Now for the future I know.

posted by  newyorker

posted by  newyorker

Boomba to the rescueeee....oh wait. You missed it, dont start him up again!:banghead:

posted by  thunderbird1100

Oomba and newyorker. You're probably both twelve year olds who couldn't fight their way out of a wet paper bag......so stop acting hard and behave!
