Sound Ordnance designed the B-24 dual bandpass subwoofer to be the bass fortress in your vehicle's sound system. The sturdy enclosure houses a pair of 12" polypropylene woofers in individual airtight sealed chambers, plus a third chamber that features a generous slot port for massive air movement. The enclosure's bandpass design increases speaker efficiency dramatically for impressive bass firepower. Best of all, you can watch the woofers swing into action behind the clear acrylic front windows.

The heavy-duty speaker terminals provide excellent connections, and the rugged black carpet cover with the Sound Ordnance logo lets your competition know you mean business. And you'll have extra peace of mind with Sound Ordnance's 3-year warranty behind your investment. Add a suitable amplifier, mount the system safely in your trunk or cargo area, and get ready for a bass barrage.

Enclosed Subwoofers 101

An enclosed subwoofer is a box with a subwoofer already installed. The advantage to buying an enclosed sub is that the manufacturer made the sub, then designed and built the box as a perfect match, so you'll get the best possible performance. Every enclosed sub has a maximum RMS power handling rating, so pair it with an amp with a similar RMS power rating to get the best performance.

Features

Materials: The Sound Ordnance B-24 is a pre-loaded bandpass-style enclosure with dual 12" subwoofers. It is constructed of 5/8" MDF (medium-density fiberboard), covered in black carpet. It also features dual clear acrylic front windows for viewing the subwoofers. The subwoofers feature polypropylene cones with rubber surrounds, 2" voice coils, and a heavy-gauge stamped steel basket.

Box Design: The enclosure has two separate sealed chambers in front of each subwoofer, and a vented chamber behind both subwoofers. The front-firing slot port is 2-13/16" wide and 13-1/2" high, and is centered between the speakers. The box has a total of 2.9 cubic feet of airspace.

Terminals: The B-24 is equipped with a single set of spring-post speaker terminals, mounted in the rear panel. The spring terminals will accept bare wire, pin connectors, and single banana plugs, but are spaced too far apart for dual banana plugs. Inside the enclosure, the two drivers are wired together to present a 4-ohm load to the speaker terminals.

Brackets: Brackets for securing the enclosure to your vehicle are recommended.

Exceeded my expectations! First time I tested these out I was in my garage with the door shut... Bad idea. The whole house was shaking and windows rattled. Great buy, but be ready to do some extra tightening of screws in your trunk and putting some sort of material to absorb some of the heavy hits in places that you never know could shake like they do with these. Would definitely recommend going with the sound ordnance M-2250 amp, it's made for these and really puts out some great bass.

It sounds good easy to install. it's not as big as what i kept seeing from the reviews i still have about 6 inches on each side of the sub woofer in my 1998 Buick park avenue. looks nice kinda wish i had the option for 2 speaker wire locations instead of just 1 plug for both. i can see the logic why have two areas that can mess up why not just 1. but it would still be nice to lets say if one sub is blown u have the option to only use 1. with just a quick disconnect.. over all i would give it a 4.5 because of the glass being scratched but i think it's a good deal. great Bass package and cheaper than other ones on Crutchfield's website.

Pros: great sound, easy install 6 inches on either side in my trunk in a 1998 Buick park avenue.

Cons: I spent the full amount and still got scratches on my glass.. not sure if the sub is fully broken in.

when I first bought this box and amplifier I was worried that it wouldn't quite have enough bass for me. boy, was I wrong. this box is unbeatable in every way the price is perfect, it looks nice, and it sounds AMAZING. listen to everyone's advice when they recommend the m2250 Sound Ordnance Amp. Still astonished at the sound quality. These subs hit HARD yet still have plenty of sustain. Two thumbs up

Pros: Amazing sound quality Amazing Price Beautiful enclosure

Cons: None :)

Simply a great great subwoofer. Honestly if you're having any doubts about how hard this will hit trust me. It hits hards. I paired this with the matching 2250 Sound Ordnance Amp and its all this sub needs. Im driving a 1996 Corolla and this thing hits so hard you can feel it vibrate the drivers seat. The people sitting in my backseat tell me all the time to turn the radio down because the vibrations are so strong they make them sick. It sounds amazing. Outside of the car you can definitely hear the the rattles of the subwoofer. I have no sound dampening on it but I will soon. But yea you can hear this sub from a block away for sure.

Pros: Everything. Heavy hits. Deep bass. Rattles. Loud. Everything.

Cons: None. Get this ish

These subs are just what I needed. I'm sixteen so I was just looking for something cheap with good reviews. I got the Sound Ordnance M-4100 amp to go with it and the sound quality is great. These subs are very well priced considering how hard the bass hits. I think these would be perfect for someone who is just trying to find a good deal on some good subs. They look just as awesome as they sound and the glass cover is good so that nothing can damage the subs when I have stuff rolling around in the trunk. All around great deal considering the quality of the product. Definitely happy that I got these. I've only had them for about four months but I have had no problems so far.

Pros: Bass hits hard Stylish Good price

Cons: The box is pretty big and it barely fit in my trunk.

Update: have had these for a couple years now, and they still sound as great as day 1. however, i have grown away from the bandpass boom sound, so i put the subs in a sealed box, with the same 2250 amp, and they sound great. tight and hard hitting. definatly worth the money, almost 3 years of beating them and the amp, and not 1 problem, ever.

Pros: die hard performance.

More than what I expected!

I bought these thinking how difficult and how risky these subs may be. After getting them I am surprised how well they perform. I've heard 2 12's before and these sound a ton better than the others. I have them paired with the S/O M-2250 amp and they sound amazing. I have to turn the amp way down and roll the windows down to even stand being in the car with the volume less than halfway up. It's the best investment you could possible make when it comes to car audio.

Pros: Everything about them is awesome. They are for a great price and the sound quality is even better. Nice clean heavy bass.

Cons: There isn't anything bad to say about them.

I bought these subs to put in my system and as of now only have them running off my head unit (about 50 watts @ 1) I'm still waiting for my amp to come in. I just wanted to see how they sounded and I was extremely impressed. Only hooked up to my head unit they thumped good enough to shake my car. They look sharp and are built tough. I would recommend these to anyone. Awesome buy and you won't be disappointed. I'm excited to see what they'll do with a amp pushing them!

I bought this sub to add to the sound system in my pontoon boat. I could not be happier. Plenty of thump for the money. It looks really cool too with the embroidered emblem and see through plastic panels. It sounds great on my boat I can only imagine would would sound even better in an enclosed car space.

Pros: Great price! Great sound.

Cons: Kind of big, but if you have the space no problem

subs sounded fine out of the box, but you get what you pay for.... nothing spectacular like the reviews make it seem. has very limited range especially when it comes to real low notes. I got the matching amp from sound ordinance and the amp seems to get very hot very fast, after about 30 minutes of driving the amp feels like its on fire. after about 6 months they just died. they sound fine at first but after about 6 months you will be wanting to replace them. spend more money and get something that will last

Pros: you have bad speakers to show off for looks

Cons: you have bad looking speakers that cant produce the sound you would expect from cool speakers

These are honestly the best deal I have come accross in a long time. I was skeptical at first because people were basically drooling over these subs and i felt as though it was too good to be true to be honest. but then I saw the 3 year warranty so I was like whatevs and just decided to buy them. and all I can say is wow. I bought these with the matching M2250 amp and 4 gauge wiring kit and these things pound HARD. My friend has p1 punches and these destroy those easily. The only problem i'm having so far is that the amp gets a little hot when i run these for like 30 minutes at a time, but it's basically unnoticeable. Each genre of music sounds great, but I honestly only listen to rap and hip hop and these are perfect for that. The bass pounds my entire tahoe and when I had my friend pull up to me and listen to them, I got his rear view mirror to shake as well lol. Not to mention that every single person who has looked at them has said "those look nice". They look sick as heck in person. If you're looking for some nasty bass on a budget these are perfect for you. I would definitely reccomend this to anyone. I guarentee you this will be all the bass you need, because you can either tone them down to super quiet or so loud you can't even hear the music, and everything in between. I just keep them on -3 and i can't even use my own rear view. old school blindspot checks for meh. alright well that's all I got to say about these. Definitely a must buy.

Pros: Everything

Cons: your call smells like carpet the first few days of breaking them in

I installed these with the Sound Ordnance M-2250, my preexisting InstallBay 1000w wire kit, a 1.0 microfarad capacitor, and an InstallBay line-output-converter. As soon as i ran them the first time i was impresses beyond expectation. Bass response was strong, clean, loud, and un adulterated. Out of the three bass rigs ive run in my vehicle (sony-ma audio combo, massive-bazooka combo, an this Sound Ordnance) this blew me away with its sheer affordability and quality. Id recommend these to anyone who wants immaculate bass on a budget. All genres sound good from bass kicks to synth 808's through the Sound Ordnance B-24 setup. 5 stars.

Pros: Affordable, well built, nice on the eyes, excellent audio quality.

Cons: Although the warranty is fantastic, once the equipment goes out of warranty, if the subs were to die theyd have to be replaced with shallow subs. Not alot of room in the box.

Absolutely Fantastic!

These subs are well worth the money! I've had them for about 2 years now and haven't had a problem with them yet. Break them in properly like any sub and they'll last you a lifetime. They do lack the ability to play very low hZ bass but for 99% of music you'll never notice it. It produces bass that will pound your chest, but is tight enough to sound great with country and rock, it adds depth to any music that normal speakers alone lack. Paired them with the recommended 2250 amp and it's perfect.

Pros: sturdy, powerful, tight bass

Cons: slightly limited range

These are amazing! I had them installed for few hours now but they STILL hit hard !!! These produce some loud, chess pumping, car ratteling, head turning bass. Perfect for rap and hip hop. The best part is when my friends want to see what they are. They look great. Not only do they look sexy but you don't lose out on quality.! I got them hooked up with the matching S/O M-2250 amp and it hits hard! The box is big, but not heavy. Also its built sturdy.

Pros: These produce some loud, chess pumping, car ratteling, head turning bass.

Cons: None so far.

to respond to the other reviewers, so people dont get confused, first, you should get the matching S.O. amp (2250) it pumps these subs amazingly, if u use some cheap brutus or crap of course you will be sadly let down. these speakers DO hit lower notes, ive used a test disc and at 20hz they shake the mirror off and never stop. so if you get the right amp, and hook them up right, which is cake, they are great. for reference, i have them in the back of an suv, and they pound the whole truck. sound quality is great, both loose and tight depending on music you play. rage pounds tight, and the seldom "pop" i play hits long loose bass. best of both worlds.

Pros: awsome deal, great sound, price is great (i paid 159) and look sharp.

Cons: none for me, and ive had them for a year now, going strong, never miss a beat.

I was slightly disappointed when I saw that my new b-24 sub woofers had a crack in the left speaker Bandpass glass cover. I immediately called Crutchfield and was assured new sub woofers would be shipped immediately. I was even e-mailed a return shipping label, costing me nothing to return the broken subs. As sound quality goes, they bass is really loud and shakes my car pretty well when the right song is on. I believe the speakers lack in lower frequency reproduction such as in the song "On my Level" my Wiz Khalifa. Half of the bass notes are missing or very quiet because they are too low for the speakers. Other than the problems with deep bass, I have no complaints about these sub woofers and I am overall satisfied. Definitely worth the money. I have my subs hooked up to the m-2250 amplifier in the trunk of my 2005 Honda Civic Sedan.

Pros: Very Loud

Great sound, sturdy build - these speakers are heavy and big! Limited frequency response is a downer, but one i can live with.

Pros: Great boom, rock solid, look cool!

Cons: Heavy and Big, low frequency response range.

Excellent Subs!!!

Seriously, These are amazing! I've had them for about a week and they haven't even broke them in yet but they STILL hit hard though!!! The best part about it is when my friends find out I have serious loud, chess pumping, car ratteling bass. I get to show them my trunk and its really cool looking subs that are blowing that sick bass! Not some ordinary looking subs like kenwood or pioneer. I love them. I got them hooked up with an M-2250 amp and it pushes hard!

Pros: Loud deep Bass. (hip-hop/rap) awesome apperance(attraction) fit well in trunk 3-year warrenty. Blows away my competition.

Cons: Not any yet

AWESOME BASS!!!!

Well worth the money! The bass is off the scale with the Sound Ordnance M-2250, 2-channel car amplifier - 175 watts RMS x 2. If you want to turn heads and get dirty looks from old people then this is the sub package for you! I just love it and my kids are jealous, hehe.

Pros: High quality sound

Cons: none

After reading all the positive reviews I though I would buy this and I was saddly disappointed. If you've never had subwoofers in your car in the past or your not expecting really bass you can feel and you dont have $ this is the product for you.

Basically you get what you pay for, this bass combo does a poor job of providing that hard hitting base that you can feel and that shakes your rear view mirror.

I am running a Hifonics 1700 Brutus amp and pushing 600 rms to this box. When my gain is set past halfway up my amp goes into protect to stop me from blowing the speaker. So the rating of 500 rms is off quite a bit. Remeber that our amplifiers are only running at 60 - 70% in a best case scenario.

After being disappointed I went out and bought some Orion XTRPro 12's which I wanted to put into this box and I was saddly disappointed again, the mounting dept in this box is very shallow and can not accommodate real subwoofers. Also when pulling out the subwoofers I found that cheap 16/18 gauge wire was used from the connecting terminal to the speakers. Also they are using two 8 ohm speakers so good luck trying to reuse the subs in another configuration.

Pros: Looks great, sounds ok if you don't have the $ for real subwoofers

Cons: Doesn't hit, and you don't feel the bass you only hear it. The speaker mounting dept in this box will not accommodate other subwoofers.

I bought this product in early January, been busy so just got it set up with the efx 8gauge wiring kit and 12 gauge speaker wire and these subs are so sick. The only problem i had was getting them to play. My car battery was pretty much dead and i think that led the subs to not get enough power to play. But now they are great. This was my first install and i think they are great started subs. someone i know has exo's but these b-24s hold enough power where i get the mirrors to shake. great product and excellent customer support!!! thanks crutchfield

Pros: loud, heavy, shakes mirror

Cons: non

Put these in the back of my explorer hooked up to a cheapo 400 rms amp. They deliver massive sound compared to my sealed tens I replaced. They look awesome and the box is stout. Response to some of the faster beats can be slow but that might just be the nature of these bigger subs. Overall a great product and glad I made the purchase.

Pros: Big boomy sound

Cons: Size might be an issue

I bought this sub box for my son. He is the envy of all his friends at school. He gets more sound out of this system than his friends who spent $1.000 on their system. the sound is amazing.

Pros: solid design, great sound, looks great,

Cons: none that I can tell

I trusted other reviewers....and they were spot on!!

I have friends with systems that cost several thousand dollars. I've heard competition vehicles. I've been in the Rockford Fosgate Demo van. These subs, come very close to beating my friends' systems, and I haven't even broken them in or turned them up all the way!! I can't wait to hear what they sound like in a week or two!! They hooked em up at the garage I use, and I could hear them testing it out in the separate shop!! These things sound amazing, and I got them on sale for $150!! These are an amazing value. You have to spend a LOT more money to get anything better, and these subs are WAY MORE than most people need. I cannot believe the value. Build quality is superb, the enclosure feels extremely solid. The only minor detail on sound quality is that it only goes down to like 42hz, so songs like "put on" by jeezy, where the base gets lower and lower, it will get a little bit quieter on the next to last lowering, and basically that last and lowest bass hit theres no bass coming outta the speaker. On the bright side, unless you have really good headphones, you'd never know that bass was ever there or supposed to be there. This is a minor drawback on these awesome subs!!

Dance music plays well, rap hits very hard, and I haven't tried rock or anything yet.

For those wondering I'm in a Buick Park Avenue with a midrange Kenwood head unit, Kenwood 6x9s on the rear deck and Kenwood 5.5s in the front doors amped by a cerwin vega 2 channel. I used the M2250 amp for the subs.

Pros: Great, loud bass. Excellent build quality and price.

Cons: Minor flaw with the 42ish hz limit... but again, if I didn't have a $300 pair of sony extra bass headphones that go down to 4hz, I wouldn't even know those notes were in the song.

Cons: None at this time.

i bought these to replace my jl audio 13w1v2-4 subs. i am still breaking the b-24's in and i am amazed by the sound improvement. these play almost all types of music perfect, like rap, rock, dubstep, heavy metal. These really move some air, although i am only using about less than 1/3 of the volume because they are in the break-in period. The Bass is loud, clear, deep all at the same time. At lower volume levels, the bass is crip and clear, and not overpowering. I like how the bass notes are tight when they need to be, and i haven't heard any bass roll-off yet. The bass on my stock headunit is set at +1, and im not even using the bass boost on the amp, and my rearview mirror shakes violently. These really are the definition of "bang for your buck".

Pros: -music clarity, small size

BEST SUBS I'VE EVER HAD

i have been looking for something that provides a lot of bass, that doesn't break the bank, and with everything I've tried, I've found that you pretty much get what you pay for, but this is the exception. I think by far, it has the best sound of any sub box I have purchased to date. It is so powerful that I have the amp dialed way down, and run the reciever's sub control on -4, and it still blows me out of the jeep. I am definately a fan.

I bought these last week, and they were delivered today. I installed them myself a few hours ago. I am so impressed with these subs, this box, and the m2250 amp i bought with it. i was looking at much more expensive subs and after reading the reviews i thought it might be worth a try, and oh how it was worth it. they punch so hard. i can keep the subwoofer level at zero on my kenwood excelon, and have the level turned on only 1/16 of a turn on the amp and it is soooooooooooooooo loud. i think my crappy jeep is going to fall apart if i turn up the levels any higher.

awsome, simply awsome

Written By jp, usa on Wednesday, September 21, 2011

awsome!!! These subs rock hard. With the matching amp, and proper tuning, these subs will really pound ur whole car. after the break in peiod of a couple weeks, they loosen up and flow. they can hit hard and tight for rock, or loose and loud for R&B. At thier regular price these are a solid deal, and on sale its a GREAT deal. The warranty is nice. but they are flawless and doubt u will ever need it. Do not worry, you will love these.

When I first got the B-24 and hook it up to my Kenwood KAC-7204 bridged to 500 watts. I wasn't impressed but I had the gain turned down and wasn't pushing it hard I wanted to give a week to settle in. So I wasn't worried and knew I needed to wait to see the full boom. So gave it time before coming to write a review. Well after waiting a week I set the gain and started cranking it up. Still was very impressed. Played it for another week and it started getting more and more impressed.

After few weeks I can now say wow it booms pretty good. If you get it and your not getting a lot try giving it some time before giving up.

I been looking on this site for a week doing research and reading reviews cause this was my first sub. I have a Sony DSX-S200X media player and two Alpine 6x9s 3ways in the front and rear now I wanted a little thump to bring it all together. After first looking at all the name brands my friends have I happen to finally read about Sound Ordnance subs and amps. Everyone was so pleased with the brand so I decided to go with the B-24 and the M1500 amps instead of the 2500 cause I wanted the subsonic filter and the remote it came with would be a good addition. What everyone said about them is The Truth!!!They was serious when they made those and thats all I gotta say about that.

The box fits perfect in my 2010 Nissan Altima Sedan's trunk like it was made for it. Product quality is superb in my opinion... Oh and my head unit is a Sony XAV 72BT. I was a little unhappy reguarding the amp, came dented and scratched but still works...

My satisfaction with crutchfield began early. CJ told me exactly what i would need to get rediculous bass. At first i was skeptical of SO because of it not being as well known as other brands, but i decided to buy them due to them being relatively inexpensive. I bought them and recieved them three days after i ordered them (i also purchased the M2250 amp. Let me tell you, these things will POUND! they outdo any similar systems ive ever heard. They blow away any 10s and most similar 12" setups. the bass is clear and tight for rock and REDICULOUS for rap. They look amazing, and keep up and BEAT much more well-known brands like Fosgate, and JL. Buy them! Amazing for a first system for the cost, or rip out anything you may have. You wont be dissapointed!!!

Unbelievable !!!

Written By Jake, Wadesboro N.C. on Saturday, July 02, 2011

Crutchfield's customer service is outstanding first of all. I ordered this sub system and it was delivered three days later. They sent me everything I needed to get these subs hooked up. I already had speaker wire so i didn't have to order that. I bought the matching sound ordinace m2250 amp to power them. I was 100% pleased with this product. They sound excellent in my 2001 chevy S10 extended cab. I play anything from George Straight to Lil Wayne and it all sounds great. Hip hop music with low end bass will rattle windows on nearby buildings. Some people say the system is not good for rock and metal. I thought the bass was nice and tight for rock and it was good and drony for rap. Like i said it sounds good with any music. The box is well built, and of good quality. If I wish I could give it a six star rating. I have never had subs in my vehichle and I was nervous about buying these. However they will rival any kicker, alpine,etc. They are a great buy and great quality unless you do competition subs this setup is all you need.

solid box

Written By j, oh on Tuesday, June 28, 2011

This box plays all types of music well, but you should know before buying that it does have certain songs that are overwhelmed by the bandpass, in other words, rock sounds good, but certain songs sound a little "drony" while others are tight and hard. it has to do with the recording of the music though more than the type of music, so i wont fault the box.Just be aware, some songs wont sound as great as others without some tuning. I dont listen to hip hop, but occasionaly it gets played in my vehicle, and it does sound great. with the matching 2250 amp, this box can put many others to shame. Construction is solid and of good quality. and obviously nice looking. For those interested, the backside is angled slightly forward.

Detailed review: Box is well constructed, and solid. plexiglass windows are thick and well sealed. Can handle all music types, rock sounds good, others sound good too. can definatly handle the rated 500 watts. bass is heavy and will definatly wake the neighbors. dont plan on using ur rearview mirror much. performs flawlessly as advertised.

of waiting I cancelled my order with them and placed my order with crutchfield for
the 5220 sound ordnance Amp witch got here the next day after I ordered it, I wont
make that mastake again. So i put the system in my Chevrolet suburban and it
kicks harder then any of the other systems I've put in there. This box with the
matching amp is definitely what you need if your into heavy bass and crutchfield
has the service and prices you need. Only problem is there is no remote for the

I gotta say, these are pretty dang awesome.

They barely fit in my trunk and I went to pretty great lengths to secure them. Because I
would be heartbroken if they were ever stolen.

They slam hard, and I don't have a capacitor so my lights dim because they pull a fair bit
of power from my itsy bitsy Honda Battery.

something you must must must be aware of though, Is that this is a Bandpass box, and
they excel in hip hop and rap. This box gives me pulses that far surpass other boxes I
have heard.

That said, if you're looking for a sub that plays the metal, metal core, punk, death metal,
or other types of hard rock , or any music that demands(or prefers)
