Overview

Our take on the Sound Ordnance™ Bass Bunker

Sound Ordnance's rugged Bass Bunker enclosures come built to last and ready to help your sub deliver real low-frequency firepower. These unloaded boxes feature high-grade, medium-density fiberboard construction, with sealed inner braces that help combat resonance by reducing vibrations. Rounded outside corners and recessed panels allow them to fit into more vehicles, while tough black carpeting defends against incoming nicks and scratches. Bass Bunkers make a great solution when building your own box is not an option.

Rounded outside corners and recessed panels allow them to fit into more vehicles, while tough black carpeting defends against incoming nicks and scratches. Bass Bunkers make a great solution when building your own box is not an option.

The BB12-200V ported enclosure holds one 12" subwoofer and offers an internal volume of 1.83 cubic feet. Its large vents feature rounded inner corners that keep port noise to a minimum for more accurate response. Just add the right sub, amp, and wiring, then mount the enclosure securely, and you're ready to hit the road with some real bass artillery in your arsenal.

Warning: This enclosure does not include mounting hardware. If you're buying a sub from us, please check "What's in the Box?" to see if screws are included. If not, you should have an assortment of heavy-duty wood screws on hand for the installation.

So far, it sounds great. I paired it with a 12" JBL II series and it gives great bass for rap/edm music. It sounds okay with rock and country but the bass isn't as tight as i would like it. Overall, great box, solid and durable.

Box nicely built, wires attached needed reattached but works. Very nice sound clean and clear with my alpine swr-12d2 sub

Pros: Nicely built box....I know its pretty fab'd but glad I bought. Strong and sound is smooth

Cons: Wires inside pretty assembled were loose and negative fell off but I fixed that

good build quality, doesn't look as big as the picture makes it out to be, sounds great with my w3. makes the car shake, exactly what I wanted.

SOLID BASS! sounds twice the bass of the boring sealed enclosure I had

Melvin R. from San Juan, PR on 9/1/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I buy this Sound Ordance bass bunker based on the reviews of others and I really was impressed with, has a round corners, super well-built, well-upholstered, excellent bass reproduction, deeper and more accurate than the sealed enclosure I had, which I found very boring. I was looking the way to put a good subwoofer in a box that help to reproduce good bass and it was small too, so as not to leave the trunk of my car unusable and it was manageable for me and my car stereo configurations, I install a Kicker 43CWR122 subwoofer, set the sub-sonic key of my amplifier to 30Hz, and go back and tell, its awesome!!, I love it, reproduce a clean bass without distortion and solid; music like hip-hop and reggae roots are listened to another level, I feel the bass on my back seat like a massage. In a not to far future I want to buy another bass bunker to have two subs in order to take the maximum performance of my amp, without disabling the trunk of my car since I be able to get if I need space for shopping or other things.

Pros: Definitely no comparison, best-in-class ported enclosure on the market, Solid Bass for a great price.

Cons: No cons

Randall from phoenix, AZ on 3/27/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a high quality constructed 12"subwoofer box with a very high workmanship interior as well as exterior. The wire connectors are of excellent quality also. This sits next to my 10" (model # BB-10-75V) sub box and these boxes felt linings are pleasing to the eye.

Pros: Solid as a Rock!

Cons: None

Well built, solid box

Johnny G from Deptford, New Jersey on 12/13/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I like how the box comes with a bit of speaker wire lead attached to the teminal cup already, good for newbies. I actually managed to squeeze this box behind the passenger seat of my extended cab pickup...only lost a couple of clicks back on the seating position, but it was soooo worth it! Box has nice solid reverb. I added a little bit of sheet polyfill with spray adhesive (taking care not to block airflow to the ports) to round it out even more and it sounds so sweet with a 12" Kicker 10CVR122 in it. People cannot believe it is not a bandpass box and think I have more subs hidden

Pros: Good fabrication at this price point... No sharp edges, torn carpet, etc. Feels sturdy. Speaker cup comes with leads attached already

Cons: Would have liked to be able to upgrade speaker wire lead - near impossible to pull off wires without damaging cup or having to re-solder connections.... so I let it be for now. Speaker terminal cup just a bit flimsy, you may want to remove it and seal it in better

Best bang for the buck

Phenom from Birmingham, AL on 10/27/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Due to not having much time and my regular box builder being swamped and behind by about two months I purchased this box to hold me over. I am not dissapointed one bit. I may not change it out to anything else seeing as though it's only for persaonal listening. This box is not custom box by a pro builder but it is a superior product to the other prefab boxes on the market. I'm happy with it.

Pros: Good value Excellent construction

Cons: None

Took 12" Kenwood sub from sealed box to this ported box, powered by Alpine. Wow, what a difference!

Pros: Hits hard.

Cons: None at all.

If you're even considering this box, it's already too late

Zach from Florida on 9/30/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Like the title say, if you've heard of this box and are checking out the reviews now, you're already sold. I bought this on a whim for my JL 12w3 after reading a couple reviews and I'm glad I did because it hits much harder and cleaner than when it was in a sealed JL Powerwedge box. Powering it with a J2 500.1 and it is slamming with the amp not even halfway up! I can't believe how awesome this box is...just buy it you'll be glad you did.

Pros:

Cons:

Best prefab box you can buy

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works great with my Fosgate T0D212 sub. It was +/- 0.05 cuft of Fosgate's recommended sizing, and there wasn't much savings for me to DIY my own box.

Pros:

Cons: Not a knock on the box, but take a look at your sub's dims. My sub's frame had 8 little divets where I had to dremmel out the box's opening in order to get a clean fit.

Worth the price

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

i was looking for a while at boxes for a 12 i already had and for my space provided in my truck, i was well impressed by the sound when finally installed

Pros: no need for a second sub in my truck! knocks as hard as the sealed box with 2 12s i had in my civic

Cons: pretty large but theres a good reason for all that extra air feeding the sub

Excellent Box for 12" Rocksford P3

?AdiAnadi from Athens, Georgia on 5/17/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Using this ported box with a new Rocksford fosgate 12" P3 dual 2 ohm with a new hifonics 1200.1D monoblock amp and its louder than my old setup that got jacked by some car hopper and I had 2 12" Polk db1212 in a ported box.

Pros: Sounds great, loud and quality sound. Quality made box and quality wire to wire your sub to the box

Cons:

12" Sub Enclosure

Chris M from Houston Texas on 5/1/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The box exceeded my expectations. I had thought the "S/O" on the front of the box was printed, but instead it's stitched which is more than I expected. The carpet is nice, the MDF wood is nice, the terminals and wire it came with inside were nice. I would buy this product again.

Pros: Well made

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is the 3rd Bass Bunker i've purchased through Crutchfield...for the money, you're not gonna come close to this box on quality or sound...they are the best!!

Pros: Awesome sound, very loud, quality construction...nice appearance.

Cons: would be nice if they came with some screws and proper size drill bit to install the woofer with.

Ported is the way to go

Devin H from 42101 on 1/27/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I paired this box with a 12'' kicker and it increased the amount of bass that my sub put out. The sub was easy to mount to the box. The size of the box is big but I still have a lot of trunk space left over. Overall I would recommend this box.

Pros: Powerful Bass Not too large Easy install

Cons: Doesn't come with mounting screws

Nero from Tampa, Florida on 1/9/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have a 12 inch NVX VSW124 Subwoofer which according to specs needs a ported enclosure with [offsiteUrl] cu ft. I have been using it in a sealed [offsiteUrl] cu ft enclosure for several weeks. I am pushing it with a MB Quart Monoblock. I did not want to spend this much on a box but the box I had was not adequate. I ordered this Bass Bunker Monday night. Here it is Thursday night the box is here and installed. The Quality of this box is better than any custom box you can get at some stereo shop. It looks great! Sounds BETTER! I am really impressed with it. Get this box! My sub is so much louder I turned down the gain to less than half power from 3/4 and getting awesome sound>>>>>Thanks Crutchfield!

Pros: Quality, Looks Great! Includes wires, Great Pushbutton terminals, It is just Awesome!

Cons: The only down side is that I went 6 weeks without !

Awesome box

Derek R from Pennsylvania on 12/23/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This subwoofer box is excellent. First off the build quality is exceptional. It's so solid, and the plywood used to make it is really great. You can tighten screws quite a bit into this wood without it "stripping" or basically before the screw starts acting like a drill bit. Simply due to the fact that this wood is really nice. The joints are glued really well and the finish is really nice. The carpet on the outside is placed down seamlessly. This is definitely a 5 star sub box.

Pros: Excellent build quality Good plywood & building materials Great carpet job

Cons: The speaker wires included didn't seem that great to me. I took them out and put my own wire through the holes that the wire and terminals were mounted in.

I absolutely love this box!! I have this paired with the Rockford Fosgate R2D4-12 and the Sound Ordnance M-1350 amp wired @ 2ohms and that baby thumps!! I'm not winning any bass-offs but, in my '04 Toyota Corolla, it sounds great!! As always, I wanna thank Crutchfield for being such a great company. Keep up the great work guys!

Pros: Hits those lows effortlessly, Quality construction

Cons: Notta damn thing

The Right Choice.

ABEDI from COSTA MESA,CA on 8/4/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After much debating between this enclosure, the one made by the manufacturer of the speaker (Kicker) and a general brand available from the installer, I decided to buy this one based on the Tuning Frequency and sloping rear shape that fits snuggly into the back of most vehicles trunks. I just love the sound quality. Since my other car has exactly the same sub (12 inch Kicker 800 RMS ) installed in a general brand ported enclosure, I was able to swap the two and listen to the difference in sound. The Sound Ordnance Bass Bunker is definitely cleaner sounding with no loss in bone jarring Bass. I highly recommend this competitively priced Enclosure from Sound Ordnance.

Pros: The Shape

Cons: Duh?

Excellent Box for all types of music.

Ryan J. from Columbus,OH on 7/3/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've only had this box for a day but have already fallen in love. I'm running 500 watts from an Alpine MRV-M500 to a single 12" JL W3V3 in it that I was about to sell as the box it came with sounded pretty horrible and was twice the price I paid for this Bass Bunker. I'm glad I didn't. This box sounds sounds amazing. I listen to mostly Punk and Rock with a little Rap(Bone,Tupac,Eminem) and so far it sounds fantastic with everything I've thrown at it. Deep and tight bass that I can feel in my chest and that is exactly what I was looking for. Fits perfecty in my 2005 Scion xA hatchback with room to spare on each side for a couple cases of beer. I highly recommend.

Pros: Small size,Huge output. Very lightweight. Looks to be very well made. The logo is not nearly as bad as some others make it seem to be.

Cons: The only con I can think of and it's pretty minor is the included speaker wire is a bit on the small side and I really wish it wasn't soldered to the terminal.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Best prefab box out there. The box is tuned correctly and sounds pretty close to a sealed box. Even though the box is 5/8" MDF, the internal bracing helps strengthen the box.

Pros: Tuning frequency, internal bracing, sound quality

Cons: Could have use 3/4"MDF

Brad from Alliance, Ne on 4/30/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This Sound Ordnance Bass Bunker is built well and puts out clean bass. I'm going to buy another one for my son's 280Z. I have a Alpine R12 with dual 4 ohm voice coils, being pushed with a Alpine MRP-M500 mono amp. This ported box sounds 10 better than the R/T box and it's built better too.

Pros: Great price, build quality and most important is the sound quality it produces.

Cons: None

Austin from Chattanooga, TN on 3/20/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Definitely one of the best prefab boxes you can get. I have an Alpine Type R in it and it sounds a lot better than my old box. The lower tuning helps. It has plenty of bracing and is built very well. They should have used 3/4 inch mdf though.

Pros: Easy to use, cheap, sounds good, well made

Cons: 5/8 mdf

This box goes nicely with the punch p3 12, it is hard to find a similar box with the same airspace that is needed.

Pros: High airspace, good build quality

Cons: Kind of bulky

Wow, just WOW!

-J.P from CA on 2/23/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have this box paired with a kenwood kfc-w3013ps and a pioneer 2 channel amp that puts out 400 rms, which matches the sub perfect. The bass I get from this box is double the bass I got from a 1.33 sealed box!! You cannot go wrong with this!! My system is louder than my friend's two kickers! I absolutely reccomend it if you have the space!!

Pros: Its the best enclosure Ive ever used. Built well, caper looks awesome

Cons: None so far

Works well looks awesome

Cons: None so far

JT from Fort Worth, Tx on 8/7/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

First off, I received the box quicker than expected which is always a good thing. The box that the box came in was somewhat warn, but sub box was packaged well and arrived in perfect condition. The carpeting is a nice dark grey color, logo I could do without, box feels very solid nice and heavy. The box is housing a RF P3D4 - 12 with an Alpine MRP-M500 amp. This set-up is for my '12 Civic Si Coupe and box fits very well in the trunk. I originally had a Kicker factory box with 2 Comp 12", same amp, and the new set-up completely blows it away. The Kicker box wouldn't fit in the Coupe which I'm so glad it didn't. I'm impressed with the S/O box to this point. BTW, this is all hooked up to my factory non-nav stereo via the Audio Control LC2i. This sub boxis an excellent choice for a pre-fab box and worth every penny.

Pros: Solid and heavy

Cons: N/A

Great Product

A great choice for a simple place to put a subwoofer. Definitely recommend it for people who want a sub but don't have a place that screams put your sub in here. Has been working great and will look for more products by this company.

Pros: Very sturdy, great fit for car, easily moved or tinkered with

Cons: Difficult to bolt down

Amazing box

Alaskaant from Anchorage, AK on 7/18/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This box is amazing!! It's very well built, and as soon as I took it out of the shipping box I knew that it was well constructed. The only thing that I don't like is that the wire terminals are in the middle of the back of the box, not closer to the bottom. It made it a little more difficult to mount my amp to the back, but it still works!!

Pros: Attractive design Sturdy Lots of airspace

Cons: Wire terminals in middle of back Wiring looks a little small

I love this box. It took 2 days for it to get here. I got the package and immediately put my Alpine Type R in it and it bumps on 300 watts. Now I just have to go an amp and another amp kit and ill be set. Ill be recommending this box and Crutchfield to all of my friends

Pros: Well Constructed. Fast Shipping. Really bumps. I love it.

Cons: Small gauge wiring to connect your sub too. I have to replace sooner or later with the StreetWires 12 gauge.

I ordered this box or my new type r, the box is tuned to 34 hz so it was within the subs preferable enclosure, but the volume was a little on the big side!! But what they usually say the bigger the better! His box hits every note and it sounds amazing in my car! Never knew one 12 could be so loud and clear!! Great product!

Pros: - looks nice - loud and clear bass - hits high and low frequencies

Cons: NONE

A solid ported enclosure

Mike from Atlanta on 11/27/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased this box to replace an old sealed enclosure. I had recently upgraded my subwoofer and the old sealed box was just way too small, it was choking the sub. The enclosure seems well built, and has plenty of additional interior bracing. It is very sturdy, and weighs close to thirty pounds. For a pre-fabricated box, it's one of the best. The difference between my old sealed box and this ported box is night and day. I feel as if I had purchased a new more powerful amp, and better sub, but in reality, I just purchased a box that was within the recommended specs for my sub.

Pros: Sturdy construction. Spring post terminal. Tuned to 34hz. A good amount of internal volume, 1.83 cubic feet.

Cons: Speaker wire is thin, high gauge. SoundOrdnance logo on enclosure is tacky, but I guess that is more personal taste. 5/8" wood thickness. Should be 3/4", but for the price, 5/8" is fine.

Great Bass Improvement

I used this box with my alpine type-r sub. This is a great box for that sub. Offering 1.8 cubic feet, this box is within the type-r specs. Often times people neglect the importance of a good box. Without a decent box the sub will never sound good. Most will say build your own but this is a great alternative. It is affordable and built very strong, looks great too! Don't hesitate, if you need a 12" box with 1.8 cubic feet give or take than this is your box!

Pros: Quality Tuned lower than typical prefabbed boxes Good price Sounds great

Cons: Heavy? not really a con

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I'm very impressed with this box... it produces an excellent sound and without the outrageous prices of competitor's boxes. I installed a 12" type x in it with in 10 min of recieving the box... a little tweaking the eq and wow it sounds better than I ever expected! I'm used to running the old vt boxes and was expecting a weaker sound by going to a smaller box, but it's just what i needed. It fits nicely behind the center consol in my dodge ram quad cab and I have an open backseat for anyone brave enough to sit back there with it!!! I would deffinitally recomend this box to anyone with a love for bass.

Pros: Sounds great, looks great and it's holding up great!!! (I blew my old vt box apart with the same speaker)

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Lack of time and motivation had driven me to search for a pre-fabricated enclosure, and I expected I would have to accept many compromised and less than ideal features. I just needed to find something good enough to get my by until I could find the time to build my own. Then I happened upon this box. Wow! To think a company actually put in the effort to build a box with braced panels, attractive corner ports, generous internal air space, and, if that's not enough, they tuned it nice and low! In short, this is exactly what I would have built myself for little more than the cost of materials.

Pros: 5/8" MDF with bracing saves weight without compromising rigidity. Sealed inside joins. Spring loaded binding posts. Not a cube shaped standing wave generator like so many pre-fab boxes out there. Clean, aesthetically pleasing look.

Cons: I wish the input cup was installed on one of the side panels instead of the back. I would prefer to mount the amp on the back, but the cup was in the way. If the cup was recessed I would have mounted the amp over the cup, but it is flush mounted and I didn't feel like improvising stand offs, so I ended up with the amp on the side panel.

Stop your searching!!

O.k. first off this thing shipped to my doorstep less than 48 hours from when i ordered it. DANG! thats obviously a plus. the box it shipped in showed up a little brusied up, but who cares. i open the packageing tape and i was amazed. THIS BOX IS GORGEOUS. It fits perfectly in the back of my 2011 mazda3, and matches the black interior just as nicely. It just feels so stury and heavy, weel designed and has a fantastic finish on it. My alpine type R will sound the best the closest i can get the box size to 2.0 cube, and this is 1.83 close enough. I have been looking for deals for my first system for about 2 months and ultimatly have come to this setup. $126 on amazon1________12' Alpine Type-R 1223 (so i can run it at 4 ohms) $40 locally________________wiring kit $60 with FREE SHIPPING___Sound Ordance BB12-200V $198.98 locally Alpine PDX 600.1 (600rms at 2 and 4 ohms) $65 install at american electronics $491 Total. All brand new all in all this box will complete my setup and it will complete yours too.

Pros: -Shipping speed -Looks -feel

Cons: -nothing yet!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

When I first opened the box, I saw this tightly-built box. I knew it was going to be good. Once I installed the Infinity 1262w 12" in, it looked like it was meant to be paired with the box. Once I hooked up the amp, though, I was mesmerized. My last setup used the same amperage, but the new sound quality was unparalleled. It sounded like I had much more than 250W RMS pumping out the trunk. I recommend the box to anyone wanting a quality box of this size.

Good box for the money. The shipping was very quick. The only thing I don't like about the box is that it's a hatchback with the back slanted. Would buy again. Crutchfield has fair prices on good products.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great Box! Hands down! Needed something a little bigger than my previous 1.25 cu ft ported Q-logic box. The Sound Ordnance box is about the same size as the Q-logic but is more than half a cubic foot bigger internally! It's low tuning frequency really livened up my music... It really woke up my Alpine Type R 12! And I still have plenty of trunk space! Awesome price, free shipping, and the usual awesome service! Another successful purchase from Crutchfield!

Good value for the price. Even vented, a sub box should have walls thicker than 5/8" imo. Good job with reinforcement pieces built in though. Running an old MTX 2000 @ 140W.

This box is a great buy... I have my alpine type r 12" sub in it and it hits hard and deep with this box.. even though im only pushing a 600 watt amp to it, this enclosure can take the constant pounding of the type r.......espeially with its great price, you cant beat it. Its a great buy.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This box hits hard! I am using an Alpine Type R 12" sub and now only use 1/4 of the power I used to use from a sealed box I was using before. This box really amplifies the sub! The box fits perfectly behind 1 seat in my Subaru Forester with the sub pointed backwards. I would recommend this sub box to anyone that wants the most performance from their sub!

Features

Materials: The Sound Ordnance BB12-200V Bass Bunker is an unloaded, hatchback-style ported enclosure for one 12" subwoofer. It is constructed of 5/8" MDF (medium-density fiberboard), covered in black carpet.

Internal Box Volume: The enclosure has 1.83 cubic feet of airspace.

Terminals: The BB12-200V is equipped with a pair of spring-post speaker terminals mounted in the rear panel. The spring terminals will accept bare wire up to 10 gauge, pin connectors, and single banana plugs, but are spaced too far apart for dual banana plugs. Inside the enclosure the terminal has an attached 24" length of speaker wire for connecting the subwoofer.

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

I listen to a lot of music with significant output in the 30-40 hz range and was not getting enough output from my sealed enclosure. This was the only pre-fab enclosure I found with a tuning frequency in the range I was looking for. [ Juan de Dios  Nov 18, 2016 ]
Not a bad price. Well made boxes. [ Bryant  Nov 14, 2016 ]
perfect match for my sub. [ jesse  Oct 12, 2016 ]
fit the needs for a focal sub i purchased, looked nice and affordable [ David  Sep 17, 2016 ]
based on reviews [ Melvin  Aug 18, 2016 ]
Cos of da boom [ Cody  Jul 09, 2016 ]
Gives my Nisaan Maxima the thump I'm looking for. [ Maurice  Jun 16, 2016 ]
The sound is incredible. Hits like crazy with 12" sub. [ Jose  May 16, 2016 ]
I had planned on building a custom ported box to fit under the third row bench seat of my van and after researching my subs air space requirements vs port size the cost of materials these are the best way to go, their in the mid range of my air space requirements for a ported box they will still fit under the 3rd row seat and I don't have to design a huge custom box that can't be moved once installed under the seat. [ STEVEN  Apr 07, 2016 ]
i purchased an alpine 12 inch type r sub and was looking to put it in a exceptional ported box. writing this review it is not installed and i do not have it yet. but by the other reviews on this box you can see this box and the people who make it are praised for their good work. [ donta  Mar 07, 2016 ]
I already own a 10 inch S/O subwoofer box that is fantastic! [ Randall  Mar 01, 2016 ]
I chose this because it's the closest size match for my 1262W Infinity sub that I could find through Crutchfield. Also The interior, from what I can see in the pictures, looks to be of a quality build. [ Samuel  Feb 18, 2016 ]
The description/details info was very thorough and consequently I concluded that this would meet my application requirements. Thanks. [ david  Feb 01, 2016 ]
I looked at other boxes, I like the way this one was built with 45 degree angles to channel the bass [ Marvin  Jan 21, 2016 ]
Good looking box and will fit my kicker sub perfectly [ Jeremy  Dec 24, 2015 ]

12 questions already asked

Not sure, I'm running a Kicker CVR and it hits pretty good... [ Dereake  Nov 26, 2016 ]
Yes , I did quick search for min spec 1.0 - 2.0 sq.ft. recommended for your Sub. I've tried sealed, band pass and by far Ported Box is IMO best all round Sound. I recommend Utube and look into a few things if your not aware, like the Big 3 wire upgrade, a decent capacitor if your alternator sucks, maybe your lucky and their is an alternator upgrade available for you. You need Big power for Big Continuous BASS. I got to thank utube for my current Bass build 1 12in Sub. 4 6x9s 4 6/12in Door speakers 2 AMPs one is a 4 Ch other is a Mono block Sub amp in a 1992 Mustang. Good luck and may Happy Bass be in your future [ Gabriel  Nov 16, 2016 ]
Yes id say close enough! I mean the box is meant for more condensed better sound but If you're worried about sacrificing sound go bigger! [ Jenna  Nov 15, 2016 ]
I think that's pretty close. Besides, the box volume is only "recommended" as you say. People will use larger or smaller boxes to tweak the sound to their liking. With a smaller box you would get tighter bass but I doubt you would notice a 6% reduction in box size. As for the box itself, I like mine a lot. Its quality construction impressed me and I'm very happy with it. Just make sure it fits where you're going to put it because its relatively large for a one 12-inch sub box. Good luck. [ Rod  Nov 15, 2016 ]
Yes it should, I have a Type S and I would assume both subs are made on the same frame. [ Bradley  Nov 05, 2016 ]
It should fit fine man but honestly I would get a larger box. It's a small box for such a good quality speaker you know? A bigger box (still 12" hole) would make it sound oh so much better [ TREVOR DWIGHT  Nov 05, 2016 ]
You don't have to but you could stuff it with some poly material. That's an old school trick to simulate more cubic feet . It slows down the air movement coming out of the port making the box seem bigger than it is. [ DAVID  Apr 06, 2016 ]
I have this enclosure and it works fine with my Alpine SWR-12D4 and no damping material. I think damping material is typically only used in smaller, sealed enclosures. I'm not 100% sure on that though. [ Derek  Apr 05, 2016 ]
If you have the JL Audio 12w7AE-3, for a sealed box you would need 1.375 cubic feet. For a ported box you would need 1.75 cubic feet. Hopefully this helps you. [ Brad  Dec 24, 2015 ]
Yes [ Calvin  Dec 21, 2015 ]
It fits a regular size 12 so I would imagine a shallow mount would fit [ RYAN  Aug 09, 2015 ]
Yes it would! I put a RE sx 12'.... ( I know i need more air space) [ ZACHARY R  Aug 08, 2015 ]
I don't see why not but make sure your shallow mount can be used in a sealed or ported box check your cu.foot on the sealed and ported for the woofer. [ Calvin  Aug 08, 2015 ]
Yes, keep in mind that it's only 1.75 cu ft [ ROBERT  Aug 08, 2015 ]
Works really great with th p3 12" and it's clearly made with quality materials so I'd say yea [ Mark  May 22, 2015 ]
Hi steve! I believe it would handle your subs just fine. If anything should go wrong Crutchfield has a great return policy. Good luck! And may the BOOM be with you! [ thomas  May 19, 2015 ]
Yes, this box is built very strong and sturdy. It can take whatever you dish out. [ mitchell  May 18, 2015 ]
Easily..................... [ DONALD  May 18, 2015 ]
It should. It is very sturdy and well built. The joints are sealed to avoid air leaks as well. Note: it is heavier than its size implies. [ roland  May 18, 2015 ]
Yes, the box is very sturdy and good for any type of music. However, if you mainly listen to rap, look around for a box tuned down around the 32 hz range. It makes a world of difference [ BRAEDEN  May 18, 2015 ]
As long as you don't block the ports and secure the box in place. The box on its side I think would be a little unstable. [ DAVID  Apr 06, 2016 ]
It shouldn't, but if you do don't cover up the port of the box or it will affect the sound. [ Bradley  May 08, 2015 ]
IT shouldn't affect anything as far as bass or performance if you put the box on its side. However, the box will be taller on its side so if you have a car it might not fit in the trunk [ LANCE  May 08, 2015 ]
It wouldn't effect sound but it would not stay on its side during medium braking and acceleration without additional securement. [ Edward  May 08, 2015 ]
That will be fine to do that [ DAVID  May 08, 2015 ]
As far as I know it wouldn't have any affect on the box or sub beside possibly distorting the sound a bit since both holes for the ported box are on the bottom. I'm not positive either way though but i hope I could help a little! [ THOMAS L  May 08, 2015 ]
it should not affect anything, it is just an inclusure after all. [ Gilberto  May 08, 2015 ]
First of all speaker placement does effect the sound. Just don't lay it over or block the ports of the box. And make sure that the box is secured as to not damage your speaker or pull out your wires from the box... hope this helps you out... [ DAVID  May 08, 2015 ]
No, just make sure there is 3 to 4 inches of clearance between the ports (holes in the box) and any obstructions (trunk walls, items,etc.) [ Joseph  May 08, 2015 ]
port is included in the internal volume.They are built well and produce great bass. [ Brad  May 02, 2015 ]
Yes it's included not separated [ Calvin  May 02, 2015 ]
The internal cubic feet is measured as you see the box. If you remove the ports it will be larger internal volume. The box sounds great and is very responsive, I'd compare it to a sealed enclosure as far as accuracy and tone, but you can tell it's ported when you get some lows going. [ PHYLLIS  May 01, 2015 ]
Yes it does [ ROBERT  May 01, 2015 ]
Hi Josh - The manufacturer of the sub you're planning to use has most likely already done the math for you. The sub manual will include suggestions for the optimum enclosure size for both sealed, or ported boxes. And you cant go wrong with Sound Ordnance's quality construction for pumping out rock solid bass with no distortion! [ KARL D  Jan 21, 2015 ]
I not sure exactly what your asking.I had a Kicker 12''sub-woofer and a separate amp for it and another amp for the Rockford Fosgate speakers in the car, a 2005 Pontiac GTO,with a Pioneer AVH-3500BHS player,and the street wire monster wire.Everything sounds great. [ christopher  Jan 20, 2015 ]
That is a good question. I'm not sure of the correct answer. I would suggest either asking someone at Crutchfield or Sound Ordinance. [ JT  Jan 20, 2015 ]
I'm not positive on this, but I think the tubes at the bottom on both sides would get in the way... I would just buy an appropriate/ square box to start with. If they don't them available at Crutchfield, then do a search for "box for square subs". Lots of options out there. [ JT  Nov 20, 2014 ]
the bracing isnt a problem, but the triangular ports on the bottom of the enclosure would interfere with an L7. i have an L7 15" now and best bet is to have a box made for the sub. i got a nice one made for 200$ at an audio shop. [ VINCENT T  Nov 19, 2014 ]
For details on fit or installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on if this will fit and what you will need for an installation in your vehicle. [ Krissy  Jun 22, 2014 ]  Staff
Sounds Better then I ever expected [ MICHAEL L  Jun 01, 2014 ]
i would say YES YES YES. This little box pounds with the right sub. i have a Rockford Fosgate P2D4-12 Punch P2 in it and it rocks. good deep bass while still able to punch. Also, this is install in a Nissan Pathfinder. [ BRANDON  May 23, 2014 ]
the cubic vol. on your sub is 1.405 for ported and 1.105 for sealed, this bunker is 1.83 cubic in. it should work pretty good [ RODNEY O  May 23, 2014 ]
Yes it will bro I got a F150 and it sits on my back seat no rattles clean sound love it. The best box i have ever had. Its worth it [ JOHN  May 23, 2014 ]
Compare the sub specs box recommended to the box volume. I have a RF P3D4 12 and love it. [ JT  May 22, 2014 ]
