Default Sub's Vs Basstubes

Hey Guys...
I own a M800 with Stero sysetm of a Pioneer Deh-P7700, 2 velocity front speakers (dunno the exact watts), 2 Rear Pioneer speakers (dunno the exact watts again) with 4 channel Pioneer Amp.. and a Blaunpunkt Basstube. One thing i want to know is when it comes to fitting a sub in a m800 instead of a basstube which is more better?

Even in other vehicles where generally subs r fitted inside the trunk.. which r more suitable for small car segments and big car segments and SUV's fro better effect of bass...
Sub's or Bass Tube's?

you mean ported boxes and tubes or IB install and tubes?

want people to hear you? Get tube. Get two tubes and a nice amp; people will hear you frm 500mtr ahead

Boxes if you need tight bass ( and some low bass). Do check other theards regarding this.

normally Custom sub enclousre is always better when compared to the bass tube as the tube just produce boom effect....but when a well designed sub enclousre will always sound better....

Do a search on the main thread, there's a good page devoted to subs vs tubes.

a bass tube is a subwoofer! I guess you are comparing boxed subs and tube subs. both have their advantages. what are you looking for? I would suggest that a good listen at your installer would be the best guide.
