Question about Bazooka EL260 Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

No Power I brought in my Bazooka EL260 and 2 eight inch subs to be installed into my car and the guy who did it said my amp will not work. All the wires are in properly and the inside of the amp is all fine. I get no power. But when I unintentially touched the RCA ends to the metal top of the amp the power light came on. Is there something I'm missing? Thank you for your time!

It appears that there may be an open trace inside the amp. This assumes that the ground connection between the amplifier and the vehicle is intact.

Don't allow the RCAs to contact anything other than the RCA jacks of the amp. Some head units are easily damaged when the RCA shield contacts a power source.

The amplifier will need to be repaired. It's a simple repair and shouldn't be expensive.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Can you use a bazooka ba1150 to power up an infinity 1230w sub? not a techie just happened to have these two items and was wondering if i can use them together. thanks.


This is an 150 RMS amp, but the ratings say it'll push 2 10's.
You probably won't get much out of that amp with a 1230 watt subwoofer.
The subwoofer you are wanting to run is 300 RMS, so you'll get half the power you could be pulling. But it would do okay I guess. Nothing like what you could get with a different amp though. You need like a 1000 watt amp to get the most out of your sub. But "YES" you can use them together.

I want bass that can pound


What kind of speakers are they? Liquid cooled speakers? I am assuming you are working with the bazooka speakers? Honest sugguestion: get different speakers. Bazooka is not that good of a brand. looking at bazooks's webiste the magnet size is only 30 ounces! The only good thing I have seen that have come out of bazooka was way back in the day their "P. Miller" series (a.k.a. Master P) And I never tested the subs, only the amp. What kind of car are you putting them in?

Next, a 4 channel amp is usually designated for the midrange/tweeter speakers. If you want good hard bass, only a mono or duel channel amp will put out the ohms that you need. Remember, you get what you pay for. If you get 20 dollar speakers and a 50 dollar amp, do NOT expect to hang with the big boys, even if the speaker is a 30 inch and the amp claims to be a 10,000 watt. Stay away from sony, stay away from bazooka, stay away from unknown brands.

My ideal set up would be Alpine type R or type X for subs, a Fosgate or memphis amp, and mb quart mid/tweeters. All are readily available, so competition keeps the prices affordable. Look at magnet weight when choosing subs.

I have a Bazooka sub that is about 18 inches long. black ,6 inches in dia. A red and a black terminels for speaker wires, but no visible power wires. How do you wire this sub up? It was in my car but...


It would only require a power connection if it had an amplifier built into it. Since it doesn't, you need to have an external amplifier and wire its speaker output to the sub.

I'm having problems getting full power to my sub.


when bridgeing an amplifier it always sees half of whatever load you have on it, so if you have a 4ohm speaker when it is bridged the amp will see 2ohms, so yes you can bridge the 4 ohm speaker

ELA 500.I


While I don't have any first-hand experience with either Bazooka amps or Memphis subs, this review pretty much says what I initial thoughts were. The amp will do the job without much fuss, so it mainly depends on whether you can get it for a good price.
BUT........
There could be a issue with your sub. According to Memphis, your sub (assuming it's the single voice coil version) is only good for about 250W RMS (let's ignore peak power for now). The ELA500.1, on the other hand, puts out 375W RMS at 4 ohms. You could very easily overpower your sub with that amp.
