Our take on the Sound Ordnance™ Bass Bunker

by Dominic Devito
Sound Ordnance

Why do I need an enclosure?

An enclosure is simply the box that houses your sub; sealed and ported enclosures are the most popular types. A sealed enclosure is usually smaller in size, sacrificing a little volume level to deliver more accurate bass. The ported enclosure features a vent which allows bass waves to escape from behind the mounted sub, augmenting the bass coming off the front of the sub. Ported boxes are louder, bigger, and a little less accurate. Every sub works best in the size and type of enclosure that's recommended by the manufacturer, so make sure you match your sub with the right box.

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.

The BB8-35S sealed enclosure holds one 8" subwoofer and offers an internal volume of 0.38 cubic feet. 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.

Our Product Research Team

At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere. That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box, verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs. We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.

Features

Materials: The Sound Ordnance BB8-35S Bass Bunker is an unloaded, hatchback-style sealed enclosure for a single 8" subwoofer. It is constructed of 1/2" MDF (medium-density fiberboard), covered in black carpet.

Internal Box Volume: The enclosure has 0.38 cubic feet of airspace.

Terminals: The BB8-35S is equipped with a pair 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 terminals have an attached 18" length of speaker wire for connecting the subwoofer.

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

Excellent with only one issue

Written By dearmosd, Liberty Twp, Ohio on Saturday, September 28, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
EXCELLENT PRODUCT only one issue i didnt like was the bracing inside the box blocked some thicker magnet speakers or magnets that were wide. The brace prvented the speaker from fulling sitting, easy correction i just removed the bracing but other than that this is a great box. I plan on ordering another for my 10" sub
Pros:
excellent construction and material
Cons:
inside bracing decreased inside size were the thicker speaker magnet was hitting the bracing

Lil Bass Bunker is correct

Written By Devin D, Chicago, IL on Tuesday, September 10, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Nice compact size w/ a solid construction my only complaint if you want to even call it that is that the box tips over easy so it needs to be secured some way. I paired it w/ a JBL GTO804 & Alpine MRP-M500 & the trio works really well together in the small trunk of my 2011 Camaro.
Pros:
Compact Size, solid construction
Cons:
Tips over easy needs to be secured

Solid Enclosure!

Written By azhtfreak, McMurdo Bay, Antarctica on Friday, June 15, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Solid construct - 5/8" MDF and good binders - why I bought it... Dropped a Kicker 10CVR82 8" 2x2ohm DVC in.
Pros:
Kicker 10CVR82 hits hard in this sealed enclosure - after mods (see below). FREE S/H!!!
Cons:
This IS a premium price for a small 8" enclosure. MODS: (1) Replaced the supplied 16GA internal wires with 12GA, (2) RTV (caulk) the binder cup to actually SEAL the enclosure, (3) added poly fill. For a $40 8" SUBWOOFER enclosure, move to the 12GA and the poly fill, it's what, a +$0.05 increase per piece???.

S/O Bass Bunker 8 inch

Written By Chuck W., Madison, Wi. on Thursday, June 07, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I have not yet heard how this product will make my 8 inch JBL Sub sound. My stereo build is just waiting for some rca/speaker adaptor cables to be complete. The quality of the Sound Ordinance Bass Bunker in 8 inch is very good. The construction is flawless and a good marine grade carpet is used to finish it. I did remove the smaller gauge wire that came with it and replaced with 12 gauge cable before mounting the Sub. It is a great product to be sure...
Pros:
Great Quality
Cons:
None

I was pleasantly surprised to get a box of this quality for this price. Works perfectly with my 8 inch infinity speaker, however I did have to slightly enlarge the speaker hole for my speaker to fit. Sounds and looks GREAT!

Exactly what I needed

Written By Patrick, Nashville, Tennessee on Tuesday, May 24, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I got this box to hold a JL 8w1v2-4 subwoofer. The box is .38 cuft and the sub called for .375 so it was a perfect match. The box was a whole lot smaller than I expected, and will take very little space up. It is VERY solid. You would have to take a large hammer to it to break it, and that would be after many many hits. The inside wire are thick (at least 18 gauge, looked to be 16 gauge) comign off the input terminals which are high quality. The opening was the perfect size, I pre-drilled the holes to mount the sub and used deck screws to hold it in place. It was extremely solid and very air tight. High quality product and would definitely recommend. Plus it looks good compared to other "flashy" sub boxes out there.
