Our take on the Sound Ordnance™ M-1350

by Buck Pomerantz
Sound Ordnance

My system has plenty of power. Who needs an amp?

You might think you don't need an amp because you have a 400-watt system in your car, or because your new stereo puts out 50 watts a channel. But those are peak wattage ratings, which may boil down to 15 or 20 watts per channel, using the more realistic RMS rating. An amp sends your speakers the power they need to deliver your music with clarity and impact, whether you're using factory speakers or high-performance components. And low-frequency reproduction requires lots of power, so an amp is an absolute must if you're adding a sub to your system.

Win the battle for great sound in your ride. Sound Ordnance amplifiers feature tough construction, rugged looks, and a 3-year warranty, so you can enjoy the full power of your music for the long haul. Even better, you can add Sound Ordnance to your arsenal at a surprisingly affordable price.

The Sound Ordnance M-1350 mono subwoofer amplifier packs a 350-watt wallop that'll give your subwoofers some serious firepower. An adjustable low-pass filter and a variable bass boost allow you to control your bass barrage at will.

The M-1350 amplifier uses sophisticated power supply and output technologies to ensure clean amplification from the input all the way to your speakers. Special circuits protect the amp from overheating and short circuits, and a turn-on delay virtually eliminates that annoying thump when you turn your system on.

Features

Power Ratings: The Sound Ordnance M-1350 is a mono-block Class AB amplifier with an RMS power rating of 210 watts per channel into 4 ohms, and 350 watts per channel into 2 ohms.Power ratings are measured with an input power of 14.4 volts.

Crossovers: The M-1350 is equipped with a low-pass crossover and a subsonic filter. You can set the low-pass cutoff frequency between 40Hz and 300Hz. The subsonic filter, designed to block ultra low frequencies that can damage speakers and rob amplifier power, is variable between 10Hz and 40Hz. The crossovers have a 12dB per octave slope, and cannot be turned off.

Bass Boost: The amplifier has a rotary bass boost control, which is continuously variable from 0dB to +12dB at 45 Hz.

LED Indicators: The M-1350 features two LED indicators: a green LED that illuminates when the amp is powered on, and a red LED that illuminates when the amplifier is in protect mode due to overheating or a short circuit in the speaker wire.

Remote Bass Control: The amplifier comes with a remote bass control module to allow you to adjust the volume of the amp from the front of the vehicle. The module has a rotary volume control knob, and an LED to indicate when the amplifier is turned on. The module is designed to mount under the dash, and comes with 16-1/2 feet of cable.

Connections

Removable End Caps: The end caps on the M-1350 are removable with a 3mm Allen wrench (not supplied) to make it easier to attach the power and speaker wires.

Power Connections: The power and ground connections are set screw terminals that will accommodate up to 8-gauge wire. (An 8-gauge amplifier wiring kit is recommended.) The remote turn-on terminal is a set screw terminal that will also accept up to 8-gauge wire. A Phillips-head screwdriver (not supplied) is required to tighten/loosen the terminals.

Speaker Connections: The speaker connections are set screw terminals that will accommodate up to 8-gauge wire. Even though this is a mono amplifier, there are two sets of speaker outputs. The terminals are wired in parallel internally, allowing you to connect two 4-ohm speakers to separate terminals. A Phillips-head screwdriver (not supplied) is required to tighten/loosen the terminals.

RCA Inputs and Outputs: The amplifier features a pair of stereo RCA inputs for connecting your head unit. There is also a pair of stereo RCA outputs for feeding the preamp signal to another amplifier, if needed.

Fuses: The M-1350 features two 25-amp ATC blade fuses.

Good Amp

Written By Garrett, Richmond on Saturday, July 26, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought this amp to pair with a Kicker L5 that I had purchased a while back. It gives a good amount of power (wired for 2 ohm load) and is quite capable of filling my Tahoe with either solid sounded bass, or the loud bumping and thumping depending on the song. The remote, but wired, level control is a nice feature to add extra control of the sound level
Pros:
Price, Wiring Kit, Power
Cons:
Wiring connections

I knew it could be better!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The stock amplifier powering the subwoofer in my BMW Z3 finally gave up so it was time to upgrade. Wow! What a difference this amp made! I had already replaced the head unit and all of the speakers but there was always something not quite right with the sound. I have this amp powering a Polk 8" dual voice coil sub that replaced the 5.25" stock sub. I had to make some custom modifications in the space between the roll bars to make it fit. After installing the new subwoofer I was initially disappointed that the bass response wasn't any better. When the stock amplifier quit I thought, now I can get some bass! I knew it could sound better and man, does it ever! This amp running just the sub has made all the difference. I have lows that I never had before and much clearer mid bass. I had my wife sit in the car and listen and she said, "My seat is shaking". Nuff said! Obviously with my set up I'm not going to be rattling the neighbors windows when I drive by but, it is so nice to finally have decent sound in my convertible. Just in time for summer too! Easy to install and plenty of room for sound adjustments with the bass boost feature!
Pros:
Awesome power for the price. Good looking amp too.
Cons:
A little on the big side.

M-1350

Written By Chris, Iowa on Wednesday, May 14, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This amp works well until it fries out your head unit. I had been using this amplifier with a JL sub for about a year running it at 4 ohms. I hooked up a brand new kicker L3 to it at two ohms and withing an 30 minutes of listening to it i heard a loud thud and then a buzzing noise from the sub. While I was checking the ground I noticed the protect mode light on the amp was flashing on periodically. I hooked up a new JL amp and still got the buzzing. I then hooked up another kenwood head unit and the buzzing stopped. So now I have to send back my head unit for repairs, pay the shipping costs, and wait about 3 weeks with no radio. I will only be able to get a gift card for the amp which also annoys me. I would not recommend this to a friend. I am using a JL amp pushing 250 watts rms and it sounds way better with the JL. I am very disappointed with Crutchfield. I will be trying to purchase my electronics locally in the future.
Pros:
Works well at 4 ohms. For a cheap amp it does what it is supposed to do
Cons:
The speaker connections are at a terrible angle and are very hard to connect. This unit also gets pretty hot as others have said.

Great Amp!

Written By BJKD, Koloa, HI on Friday, May 09, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Great amp! You get wayyyy more than you pay for in my opinion. I've worked and have been in the mobile electronics field since eq boosters were the only type of external amp you could get. Gave this amp a shot because of the price, and it actually surprised me. It won't be enough to break glass or flex your panels, but for the price, it's wayyy worth it. I have it running a single dvc 12" (in my family car) and it pushes a lot better than my old Alpine mrv-757. Worth more than what you pay for it.

Its okay

Written By Thomas L., Chico, California on Monday, April 14, 2014
 
This is a great amp, i loved it. For the longest time i was using it in my house while I was working on running the wiring and setting up my car to bounce. This amp runs my 2 Diamond CX122s perfectly and i love the remote that it has, very helpful to turn down the volume in a hurry. contrary to other reviews, this amp does have the power to shake the neighborhood, i got up to 111Db with this baby without tuning, so it kicks butt. Although, I'm fairly sure that with limited space and having to put the amp on top of my subs decreased the life of it for use in the car........to about 4 days. This amp shut off all of a sudden and I heard a crackling, then it came back online about 15 minutes later and it wouldn't shut off, mind you my car is shut off. No fuses were ruined or burnt, I checked them all. Once all seemed fine I started it up again and either the amp was feeding my subs a distorted sounding bass or due to the shutoff it damaged my expensive woofers (dont mean to brag or rant but I worked 8 hours a day for my summer break to buy this crap). Hopefully it didnt damage them but due to this I have lost some trust in the amplifier. I would love to thank Crutchfield though because they sent me another one free and it just got here today!
Pros:
Looks cool, cheap, affordable, works well, good ability to adjust sound output, long wired remote that goes to the amp for quick volume control, pretty small, light weight
Cons:
short trunk life (if mounted on top of woofer enclosure), that's all. This amp......this amp man, great amp

this thing rocks,im running to 12's with it,i would say if you are looking to shake the neighbor hood it make lack in that dept.maybe with 10's,but with the 12's,its a little weak.it does shake everything in the car,and for what i like it's perfect.it does run a little warm in 2 ohm mode.i think as long as you give it breathing room it will be fine.i would recomend this thing to anyone.it gives great low lows,it will rattle you in the vehicle,maybe its my sub box thats looking for more power,sealed boxes tend to do that.but this is alot of power for what it cost.

i snagged this amp when it was on sale and it was worth the money. i hooked it to one of the sound ordinance subs and makes a big difference in the sound that it puts out. it looks really nice with the silver and black. i like how it has an extra control that you can wire up to the front of the car where you can control the power being put through the sub. it is super awesome.

mostly easy to install, looks super cool

the screws where you install the wires is a bit uncomfortable to get to

Nice Price Nice Amp

Written By Kirochan, Okinawa on Friday, September 27, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Good Price and nice sound. Does what it needs to do, Power a SUB. Has alot of features you normally would not find, like adjustable subsonic and remote to name a few. I only have it powering a single 8" Kicker running free air. Does just what it needs to do. Once I hit the States, it will be used to power two 8" Kickers, and I know it would be plenty for it. Nice clean sound coming out as well. One thing I like about the remote that comes with it, is that acts more like a gain adjuster, not a set freq bass booster. There is a bass booster on the amp that boost the bass at whatever freq is facatory set at. But overall, this thing is awesome and with an awesome price. I really wish I bought all of my amps from the S/O line. I would have saved money with the same results.
Pros:
Good features and good price
Cons:
none

Using this to power a kicker 10' at 4ohm. This was my first amp and sub combo plus I did the install myself. I have zero experience doing any of this stuff. For me this totally does the job. The amp was very easy to install and wire up. It has plenty of power for this sub. If you need an amp to power subs this is a great one.

Awesome

Written By Brandon K, Omaha, NE on Sunday, June 09, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Awesome amp at an awesome value. Like people said below, the angled inputs for wires are a little annoying since the side covers make it hard to get to with a screwdriver, but it's completely manageable. I'm also not sure if it's common to put the cooling vents on the bottom of the amp, but I hope that doesn't become an issue. I did use some spacers between my sub and the amp so that it has some more room to cool just in case. Looks great and performs great so far. Love the remote gain control that comes with it too. Would highly recommend.
Pros:
Looks great. Great value - a lot of power for the money.
Cons:
Angled wiring inputs make for more difficult installation than necessary. Air vents are on bottom of amp.

Good for a cheap amp

Written By Anonymous, Oklahoma City on Friday, May 31, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
If you are looking for a cheap amp to drive a small entry level sub, this will get the job done. I just needed some sound in a car which isn't used often, so I paired this with an old RF HE2 10. Careful, it will get pretty hot. I have yet to shut it down, but it got very hot after an hour of play and I mounted the amp with 1/4" spacers to make sure the vents on the bottom were not obstructed. I tune amps using test tones and a multimeter, when tuning this amp it wouldnt get near target voltage which makes me think it wont produce a full 350 watts, but keep in mind the price of this amp. Also, the endcaps make it difficult to get to the connections, so if mounting in a tight space keep this in mind.

All in all, if you are just getting started, and might upgrade in the future this isn't a bad place to start.
Pros:
Good entry level amp with a good warranty sold by a solid company Sub Sonic filter - Rare on amps at this price point
Cons:
Heat True produced power Size Layout - Can be challanging to get to connections

Gets the job done cheap

Written By Brian, Escondido, CA on Tuesday, May 21, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I'm powering 2 10" Kickers 150 RMS each, with this amp and it does the job great. Only down side was having to take off the decorative chrome piece to install the wiring. It was very easy, just seemed like a poor design. I highly recommend this amp though if you're on a budget and don't need a ton of power.
Pros:
Cheap, plenty of power, brushed aluminum sides look nice, remote gain control
Cons:
Awkward wiring, and kind of big. There are vents on the bottom of the amp which seems like a bad idea, after mounting the amp the vents don't get any air. I've only had the amp for 2 weeks, so time will tell how important those vents are.

Seems great... For ten minutes.

Written By Javan, Wisconsin on Saturday, May 11, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Let me prefice this by saying that I am an engineering student, with a great degree of experience with circuits and audio systems, I have been doing this a LONG time.

I installed this amplifier with an Infinity 1252w, and tuned the amplifier to output about half the volume it was capable of. High quality, high gauge wires, and careful installation. After about an hour of driving, my bass dissappered, and upon driving home, noticed the protection LED was lit. I carefully removed the speaker wire and RCA inputs, one at a time at a time, shutting down for ten seconds and rebooting after each one, Still lit.

I then removed the amp, and hooked it up to my test system on my work bench. Hooking it up to a remote battery with high gauge wire, and running it to a Kicker L7, I found that the unit, without ANY music playing, became VERY hot, and then blew the fuses. Rechecked all the connections and then inserted new fuses, they blew immediately, with and without speaker attached.

Needless to say, I did my due diligence, and this particular unit was JUNK. Perhaps just a lemon, that remains to be seen when S/O returns my email. Hopefully they stand behind their product.
Pros:
CHEAP, Looks good
Cons:
Doesn't work

this thing rocks, i hooked it up with 2 10 inch kickers and wired them for 2 ohms, sounds awesome, but if youre looking to shake the ground or ratthe body panels, just know this wont cut it.
Pros:
everything, small, easy to install
Cons:
awkward wire input placement, its at an angle and i had to remove the fake chrome part to install.

Great Amp

Written By Billy, Massapequa Park, NY on Friday, February 15, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I have this paired with my Polk Audio DXi 108 and the pair is just unbelievable. I was very surprised at the outcome but I would recommend that pair to anybody. And I like how the bass controller is included, I mounted it right next to my drivers seat on the center counsel and its perfect for adjustments when needed.
Pros:
Great power output. Bass controller included.
Cons:
none

m1350

Written By natep, carmel, IN on Saturday, January 12, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I would highly recommend this amp. You get lots of bang for the buck. I coupled this with 2 10' kicker subs(150w rms each). It powers both no problem. I found the gain control a bit confusing. There is no gain control on the actual amp itself. You must plug in the external gain control to control it. Not a big problem. I especially love the subsonic filter. I have it set at 25 hz. There is no point in giving 10' subs anything lower. I am still wondering if the bass boost is set for a certain frequency, or just the whole spectrum. Most amps are set at 45 hz. Mounting it to your box is easy. mark holes and drill 1/16 holes and boom. youre done. As far as distortion goes, i havent found any so far. I have my bass boost set at 6db and yet, none. Good job sound ordnance!

SO M-1350

Written By Anonymous, Ketchikan, AK on Sunday, January 06, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This amp is worth all that you pay and more. I'm used to having amps of more known brand names but bought this for my sons ford ranger for his first system. It's being used to push one JL Audio 10w6 in a small sealed enclosure. Though it won't be breaking windshields or shake the ground, it gets plenty loud and sounds very good. Considering I only paid a hundred bucks I think it was worth it instead of buying a used amp of higher quality ad still probably pay 2-3 times more.
Pros:
Low cost Sounds good
Cons:
The way the wires mount are awkward because its angled but once it's on it's all good. The mounting points. You need to have a long Philips bit if using a drill. The end caps look and feel cheap. They're made of plastic and covered with fake chrome. But all the cons are mostly cosmetic and don't hurt performance. I still would recommend this amp.

This amp has some great features...great price for the wattage you get and among what others say I enjoyed the slanted inputs for the speakers and the battery/ground/remote, to make it easier I just took the side plate off to access the screws easier..not that hard. Great value! Powers my 10" JL woofer just fine and no real issues I can tell so far.
Pros:
Excellent Value for the Power
Cons:
None so far.

don't hesitate

Written By Riskbreaker0, Catonsville, MD on Tuesday, November 27, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
My first amp was a mono D-class amp from MTX, amazing. It also cost me $500 for an amp that only put out 1500watts max. Just bought two of these M1350, I'm totally sold on sound ordnance. I now own their m4050 amp, for the four kicker 6.5" speakers in my firebird, and the two m1350 for my two 12" kicker compVRs. I was running the m1500 on two kicker comps, loud, but not loud enough. The old combo I had, before it was stolen, was the mtx 1500D, and a 12" L7 solo baric. The two compVR's put that solo baric to shame, and for a much cheaper price. I was worried about amps for so cheap, but don't. High powered, long lasting, everything I'd expect from a high end amp costing $400+ for much less.
Pros:
Great power for an amazing price, absolutly love it!!!
Cons:
The screws to install the wiring (power, ground, speaker) are at a weird angle, but once in work fine. Also the knobs to adjust the bass and other setting require a pretty small flat head screw driver, can't use regular size philips or flat head. I have all sorts of sizes, but you may need to buy one if you don't have as much tools as I do.

Excellent product

Written By Scott A, Paducah, KY on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This amp is great for running subs. I have installed it in my wifes suburban, along with a line converter, and one 10in kicker 4ohm dual voice coil sub. It is ran in a parallel circuit so it drops the load down to 2omhs. The amp really puts out great power and sound quality. I'm sure this amp would have no problem pushing (2) 12in subs, as long as you ran them in a parallel circuit and took advantage of the 2ohm capacity of this amp. I do agree that the wire connections being on a 45 degree angle makes it a little bit more tedeous, but its not that big a deal, and overall I'm extremely happy with this amp. It comes with the remote volume control too, and thats a big plus also.
Pros:
lots of power, and great sound quality.
Cons:
wire connections are a bit odd to get to, but no step for a stepper!

AMAZING

Written By Pres.T, Richmond VA on Thursday, September 20, 2012
 
I bought this used with a B-12 sub and i wasn't expecting the sheer power i got and the clarity. This is my first amp and i easily wired it myself, I drive an 02 Escape and the is zero i repeat ZERO rattle of the sub or my car but it hits so hard i can feel my heart vibrate. Every-time it hits i smile, so i drive down the road looking like the smiling idiot with his music WAY too loud. If you want something to power your sub this will certainly do, it its the best money ever spent.
Pros:
Ease of installation Power of bass output EVERYTHING

First time buyer

Written By Bill, lake Jackson, tx on Tuesday, July 10, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This amp seem to be a good fit for the the Sound Ordinance 12" sub and box purchased together, i had a problem with the newly purchased JVC radio sub rca out puts not getting signal back to the amp. Once i got the radio issues resolved the amps remote bass control did not function and i had to return the amp for an exchange. Crutchfields tech center was very helpful and we returned the amp for a replacement. Once the amp was hooked up and everything was working it was good, didn't hit as hard as i would like but again the price was reasonable and the over all sound is good, its not a competition amp.
Pros:
easy install, good price.
Cons:
Its not a competition amp.

Great Amp For the Value!

Written By Caleb M., Jacksonville, AL on Monday, June 18, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Amp does everything it said it would do. Great amp for the price. But having a lower price comes at a price. The design for this thing is god awful. With the RCA inputs and Speaker inputs being on opposite sides, my mounting options became severely limited. Also, the screw in terminals being covered by the overhanging chrome looking piece.......what? Who thought that would be a good idea? Even though the design is awful, it definitely gets the job done, and it does it well. I love the remote with the amp, it comes in handy.
Pros:
Awesome sound, Great Value, Remote is handy
Cons:
Design is awful

Nice amp strange design

Written By Ray Benn, Washington, DC on Friday, June 01, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Nice power for the price point and plenty of features. I have it powering a single 12in audiobahn 400watt sub and it hits nice and low! My Only gripe is the design of the screw terminal and mounting brackets. The screw terminals are angled and the mounting bracket gets in the way of the my tools! Also the frequency knobs are only numbered for min and max values I would love to know exactly where the other values are but that's minor! I will purchase more S/O gear for my wife's car good product and excellent price
Pros:
Price performance and doesn't get to warm even in warm weather
Cons:
Screw terminal, frequency knobs and mounting bracket design

Good Sound, Poor Design

Written By Luke M, Hillsborough, NJ on Thursday, May 10, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The amp's sound is great. The only reason I'm giving it a poor review is because the design is very frustrating to work with, compared to other amps. The first thing I noticed before buying this was that the RCA inputs and wired volume control input are on the opposite side of the amp's power inputs and the speaker outputs. While that restricts the variety of installation locations, I was willing to cope with it because the amp was cheap and reviews said it was a great value.

I discovered the hard way that the power terminals accept no greater than 8 GAUGE wires. I had purchased and installed a 4 gauge kit before the amp arrived, and had a rough time cutting the wires down to size.

Once the wires were trimmed down to size and inserted into the terminals, I realized that the terminals were angled downwards significantly. This pushed my thicker cables into the surface it was mounted on, and wires didn't look like they made strong, safe connections with the amp. I ended up buying a 4 gauge to 8 gauge power block and some 8 gauge red and black wires, which made the angled terminals less of a problem before I discovered another annoyance.

The chrome endpiece extending over the edge of the amp seems to prevent screwdrivers from making solid contact with the screw heads. The screw stripped after being retightened only a few times from being loose.

You won't find a better value for the money, but it looks like you get what you pay for in terms of design.
Pros:
No complaints, great sound!
Cons:
Only up to 8 gauge power wires. RCA inputs and wired volume control input on opposite side from power inputs and speaker outputs. Angled, screw-based power terminals are difficult to work with, and chrome endpieces get in way. This amp would be perfect if it's designers would put all the inputs/outputs on one end and sound controls on the other, combined with 4 gauge spring terminals and no wasted space (chrome endpieces).

Pleasantly Surprised

Written By Cory K, St Louis, MO on Friday, February 17, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I would consider myself an audiophile for 20 years now and rarely purchase home or mobile stereo equipment from brands I'm not already familiar with or have come highly recommended by friends. Needed a new amp/sub combo for a new vehicle, went with this amp and couldn't be happier. It's driving a single 10" Fosgate P1 quite well. I would purchase another S/O amp with confidence.
Pros:
Value, Value, Value! This amp is so reasonably priced it's sick for the controls/specs. Set screw style of wiring hookup is so much easier than having to attach gold plated ring terminals to the ends of power, ground, etc.
Cons:
Very minor, but the chrome painted, plastic housing around the actual amp body is what you mount/screw this baby down with. Just pay attention when you screw it down to not overtighten or APE it and you'll be fine. I could see how one could crack this plastic mounting bracket pretty easily. All of my other amps have been screwed down to the actual metal housing.

Great value for the price. Puts out more than enough power, and doesn't heat up. Remote level control makes it easy to adjust power according to personal wants. Couldn't be happier. Will definitely be buying more S/O products.
Pros:
Good power; not too expensive. Really like the remote level control. Really heavy duty connections.
Cons:

Great mono sub amp for the price, driving a single 12" sub in sealed box. Replaced a Clarion amp that was having problems... this amp rocks twice as hard as the previous amp ever did. The dash mountable gain control is great as you can adjust the bass level on the fly without screwing with the head unit or amp controls. Would highly reccomend for anyone looking for a sub amp in the 200w rms range.
Pros:
Price. Great sound. Remote gain control.
Cons:
Instruction manual could be improved.

does the job, but watch mounting bracket

Written By RonRph, Galax,VA on Thursday, February 02, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
only have had it for about a month now, but like it so far. especially like the remote level control, as it is wired to work with rear speaker volume. With the previous amp, the rear speakers would overpower the subwoofer. Now I can balance the bias of the rear speakers and subwoofer to a more pleasing sound. I had to remove the chrome plastic mount at the power/speaker hookup to get to screws and leave it off. Not a problem for me, since I have the amp mounted with Velcro to trunk carpet. Could be a problem if you want to screw it down.
Pros:
Good power for money. Remote level control real nice. plus if you need more cord, a regular telephone cord should work.
Cons:
Speaker/power connections obscured by plastic mount.

Best bang for your buck hands down

Written By Brian, Auburn, NY on Saturday, October 22, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I've been researching for nearly two weeks trying to figure out what amp would be the best suitable to power two 12" Kicker comps and I decided to go with this one based on its satisfactory reviews.

Bottom line is that this amp has more than fulfilled my expectations. I wasn't sure if it would stand up to some of the popular brands but it is definitely just as good if not better.

Its very easy to make adjustments, mounting the amp was simple, and it looks better in person that on the website image. I would deffinitely recommend this product to others and I will for sure be purchasing more Sound Ordnance products in the future.

Pros:

-Aesthetically pleasing

-Does not get too warm

-Plenty of adjustments

-Remote bass controller

-3 year warranty (most amps are only 1)

Cons:

-The wiring terminals are a little strange compared to other amps that I've dealt with but this is just a personal preference I assume.

Sick Amp

I got this amp off this website with free shipping and it came in two days which was awesome. I hooked this up in a series wiring style to my 2 Kick Comp 12's in a vented box and it sounds amazing. It hasn't over heated and it more than enough power for my 2 subwoofers. This also come with a remote bass control that I keep in my center console that makes it easy to turn the sub higher and lower. Over all this is an awesome amp and will always buy this brand.

Awsome amp

Written By Rob, Townsend, DE on Friday, September 23, 2011
 
This amp is awesome. It has features and performance you will find in most reference type amps. Has superior power to drive loads down to 2 ohms effortlessly. Powers dual 12" Polk Audio subs under the rear seat of my 08 Dodge Ram. I truly push the amp hard and get strong base even under hard loads. Amp has full adjustability for low pass and frequency cutoff points. Don't waste your money on the more expensive amps to drive your subs. You will be amazed how well this amp is built for the money. You wont regret it..

I bought this amp needing a budget system for my 08 Duramax crew cab. It works great with the Rockford Fosgate R2D4 12" sub. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 was the mount points for the amp are somewhat odd. They are part of the plastic end caps instead of part of the actual frame so I was hesitant to really torque it to the box but it turned out fine for what I need.

Quality piece of gear for great price!

Written By Mike, Lansing, IL on Friday, March 25, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
What can I say that hasn't been said about this amp/brand? I had read about it,
wondered if it was any good, being a "non brand name" amp. I read the good
reviews, people exclaiming it was a steal at the price, etc. I also know that
Crutchfield isn't a shady fly by night company that would sell junk. I've been
buying gear from them since 1998.

So I decided to give one a whirl. I'm glad I did, because this thing pushes the
single 12" DVC MB Quart sub I had laying around with some serious grunt. Bass
is clean, tight, and low. I couldn't believe it! It almost sounds as loud as
the "brand name" amp in my other car, that has almost twice the power! Sound
Ordnance just dropped onto my radar bigtime. They're such a great value, I'm
debating on buying two of the higher powered ones to push the dual 12" Kickers I
have in my other car, rather than buying just one huge amp. They're that good.

The included amplifier wiring kit was awesome as well. Was nice to have
everything come at once and get it installed all at once. My buddy was so
impressed he is planning on ordering the M-1500 amp for his car.

All in all, a solid value. Check them out.

I purchased this unit to fit inside the "amp shelf" of a custom enclosure to fit a 2001 Silverado 2500HD extended cab. It's a mono but wired in parallel to drive 2 Polk Audio DB1040 Woofers. This set-up is ideal for the small space of a truck cab. This amp powers the 10's with rich deep bass without that "muddy" sound you normally find with overpowered systems. Support was great and unit fit like a glove. Easy to understand instructions. Cables and wires mount from opposing side to keep power and sound circuits separate. - Will update in 6 mos.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I debated which AMP to purchase for almost a month. My son had acquired 2 12' Rockford P1 subs from a friend. I did research on the Subs and found the RMS ratings and the air volume recommendations and set out to find something. I have been a Crutchfield buyer for years even though I have found some better pricing at times - I know they stand behind the products. So felt comfortable with a product not familiar to me. Looked at the MTX Jack Hammer and this Amp mostly. I know this is not the best reason to choose a AMP, but I went with the S/O amp due to I was going with the S/O dual 12' Bass Bunker and wanted the looks of the 2 products with logos to be the same so that when he shows it off - the look is seamless. And I was not wrong in my decision. The Amp performs very well and the look is incredible with the Logo's on the front of the box matching the AMP and the great look of the amp and mounting - he is very happy and so am I. I plan on putting in a 2 or 4 channel unit for the highs later and will not hesitate to go

Buy Sound Ordinance

Written By Jerry, Toledo Ohio on Tuesday, September 21, 2010
 
This Amp is a powerhouse

the good:

Pushes solid stable power
Nice Price
Not Huge dimensions
has bass boost and built in low pass
Has Subsonic filter (though i dont use it)
seems solidly constructed
has remote gain controll with cable
looks nice

The bad:

the lowpass dial is not labled with frequencys very well it says min 40HZ - Max 300HZ
it would be nice to know exactly where 100HZ,120HZ, and150HZ are

suggestion: use about a 400W - 2 OHM speaker load

I was very impressed by the price and performance

Blown away

I purchased this M-1350 amp to replace my blaupunkt amp that went bad after just over a year. I was a little suspicious, as this product was new and had no reviews when I purchased, but it has impressed me. I have it connected to a 10" alpine sub in a sealed box and it powers it nearly twice as well as my old amp of similiar power rating. It's been 4 months and I have had no issues. The remote bass control is a big plus; I ran it up front and mounted the knob next to my shifter. It's handy to make adjustments for various genres of music.

Good buy

Written By Ryan, Richmond, VA on Wednesday, June 23, 2010
 
I wasn't sure how this amp would perform because there was only 1 review and the product was new. However, I looked at the stats and thought it would be a good match to my Infinity 1262W sub. I have to say that it works perfectly wired at 2 ohms. I also like the remote bass control. It makes it very convenient to change the bass without adjusting the high end volume. After this purchase, I would have no hesitation in purchasing Sound Ordnance products in the future. The support from Crutchfield was, as always, great. I love this place, and now I love their product

Once again, The Crutchfield group has won my desire to purchase products. I was very pleased with my purchase of the SOUND ORDNANCE M-1350 mono amp. it's a beast in it's sound quality. I want to thank my advisor, Chad, with good reports of this amp. I would reccommend this amp to anyone who's looking for good deep bass. It was easy to install, nice enclosure.Not much room in my 2002 Dodge Dakota club cab, still all good. Get it, get it!!!

I was a bit skeptical when I first considered this purchase, but my advisor, Al, soon
calmed any fears I had. I'm really impressed with the response my BA G21044 gives
with the output from this amp. I would recommend this product to anyone on a budget or
not trying to impress with a 'brand name'. For twice the price, these amps are quality!
Thanks Al!!!

If I bought this to power a KICKER 10TCVT82 R TCVT8 SINGLE COMP 8 SUB 2 OHM BOX, would it be a good match? [ Corey  Jul 01, 2014 ]

  • Yes, this should be plenty of power to move an 8" subwoofer in a sealed enclosure. [ ADAM D   Jul 02, 2014 ]
