Thin is in! Yes, you can get big, beefy bass notes from an ultra-thin component subwoofer. The Blaupunkt ODw1000 10" subwoofer has a mounting depth of less than 2-1/4" (and can be used in free-air applications), enabling you to put bass where it's never gone before.
Imagine bass in your tailgate door, front kick panels, or rear deck. It's all possible, thanks to Blaupunkt's revolutionary woofer design. Layers of foam and aluminum are bonded together to form a flat, disc-shaped diaphragm, which is housed in a compact, saucer-style basket to create a sleek, stylish, streamlined bass engine.
You won't find a traditional spider in this subwoofer, either. The rear suspension is fabricated from the same foam material as the surround, keeping the thickness to a minimum and eliminating the spider as a potential point of failure. Plus, the foam suspension material helps to maintain even cone travel for smooth reproduction.
These subs are attracting attention from bass-loving fans all over the world who want to save space. No wonder the Overdrive subs won an Innovations Award at the 2005 Consumer Electronic Show!

What's a component sub and why would I want one?
A component sub is simply a speaker that's designed to reproduce bass once it's installed in a compatible enclosure. Think about the impact of a movie soundtrack in a big theater or even in your own home HDTV setup. A component sub can add the same kind of power to the music in your car. And a car sub is not all about the boom that you hear on a street corner (although that's cool too) - you can pair a component sub with your choice of enclosure to get bass just the way you like it, from tight and punchy to fat and loose. And once you experience music in your car with a well-tuned subwoofer, you'll never go back.
Blaupunkt ODw1000 Reviews
Average Customer Review:
Amazing build quality, great attention to detail and fantastic sound!
I've had these in the rear deck of my vehicle for about a year now. My system consists of a Double DIN Navigation Head Unit, a Line driver, MB Quart DSC4125 bridged to my front stage of a set of 3-way components. Rear doors have Blaupunkt 8" Coaxials, and rear deck as the ODw1000's. I have an MB Quart NAU660 6 channel powering the 8" coaxials and the ODw1000's.
First off the Blaupunkts blend exceptionally well and get very low in the IB setup. I have the perfect blend of midbass from the front stage to a solid bottom end supplied by these subs. Having them IB works great and unfortunately I cannot comment on boxed sound and output, however I have no reason to believe they wouldn't perform very well. I enjoy the solid output and excellent sound I get from these everyday!!
Works perfectly fine for it's design.
I've had two 10" ODW1000 drivers in my truck for about 5 years now with 100+Wrms going to each. They work very well for what they were intended, bass in a shallow space. These subs allowed me to fit two self-made bandpass enclosures that mimic the jump seats into the club cab of my Dodge Dakota. I have a -10dB point of 26Hz and still play louder than any prefab enclosure such as the MTX.
These subs are in no way the pinnacle of performance, but I have yet to see, now 5 years later, anyone else come even close to the performance of these subs without being at least 50% thicker. I would like to purchase 2 more if I could find them!
It looks great and is very thin as it says, everything else about this woofer is a let down. The worst performance from a name brand ever.

Unique Design: The Blaupunkt Overdrive Series ODw1000 is an ultra-thin component subwoofer that is designed to be mounted in places where conventional cone subwoofers cannot. Instead of a cone, the ODw1000 uses a virtually flat diaphragm, which requires approximately 50% of the depth of a cone. It can be used in sealed, ported, or bandpass boxes, or as a free-air driver.
"Sonic Saucer" Technology: Using the following diaphragm construction technologies and stabilizing suspension techniques, the ODw1000 is able to provide the same overall performance of a conventional subwoofer in less than half the mounting depth:
- Diaphragm Construction: The diaphragm is made of stressed aluminum, bonded to a foam inner core, much like the wings of a military aircraft. The voice coil attach point is thicker at the center of the diaphragm, allowing the load to be distributed over a larger area without bending or flexing. This construction gives the diaphragm all the strength and low mass of a conventional cone.
- Suspension: The diameter of the suspension attach points has been increased from 2" typically on a cone woofer to about 9" The woofer has two foam surrounds for maximum stability: a commonly-used front surround and a rear surround to take the place of a treated fabric spider. Using the same suspension materials for the front and rear keeps the travel as linear as possible.
Magnet: The ODw1000 uses a 30-ounce magnet with a diameter of 4.721." The magnet is surrounded by a bottom frame that is 8.9" in diameter.
Enclosure Recommendations: Although the woofer is remarkably thin, the laws of physics and the production of sound require about the same box volume as a conventional cone woofer. The ODw1000 can be installed in the following enclosures:
- Sealed Box:
Pressure Level (SPL)
- Vented Box
Tuning Frequency (f3)
Port Tuning Frequency (fb)
|Port Length w/2" diameter port||Port Length w/3" diameter port||

- Single-Vented Bandpass Box:
