Add some boom to your ride

Win the battle for boom with subwoofers from Sound Ordnance. Throw one or two of these bad boys in your vehicle to give you bass you can feel. You'll love the difference these subs make, and adding them to your system won't destroy your budget.

Built like a tank

The M2-12DVC 12" subwoofer comes with a tough glass fiber cone that will keep its shape when the music's turned up, so your bass stays accurate. The butyl rubber surround helps keep the woofer's movement on track, and it'll stay pliable for years to come. The stamped steel basket provides a stable home for the whole assembly, so your bass plays the way it should. 

The dual 4-ohm voice coils allow you to wire the sub for 2- or 8-ohm impedance, giving you the flexibility you need when you add more Sound Ordnance subs in the future.  Also, Sound Ordnance backs up this sub with a 3-year warranty so you can have peace of mind while you're rocking hard. 

To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 200 and 375 watts RMS at 2 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

What's a component sub and why would I want one?

A component sub is simply a speaker that's designed to reproduce bass once it's installed in a compatible enclosure. Think about the impact of a movie soundtrack in a big theater or even in your own home HDTV setup. A component sub can add the same kind of power to the music in your car. And a car sub is not all about the boom that you hear on a street corner (although that's cool too) - you can pair a component sub with your choice of enclosure to get bass just the way you like it, from tight and punchy to fat and loose. And once you experience music in your car with a well-tuned subwoofer, you'll never go back.

This sub is amazing...the sound is tight and not boomy. It is accurate. I have to admit I try to find fault with this sub and I test it every rider it's all kinds of music just to find fault...honestly and I just can't.

Pros: Tight accurate bass

Cons: None

So i bought this sub because of the incredible sale price for one, but also because i needed a dvc sub to replace a kicker comp s svc sub that was just not cutting it for me in depth and clarity. I can't believe how much better this sub! It pounds out deep clear base and recovers well when you listen to a lot of rock like i do with double bass drum lines. Bottom line Im going to keep using these subs and upgrade to a better mono amp around 400 watts rms and see what this puppy can do. Sealed box for life by the way. Only way to judge clear base.

Pros: Big bang on a budget, sturdy connectors, fiberglass cone does no distort much at all

Cons: For me none for others maybe lack of bling?!

I would compare these subs to any other well known name brand with the same specs. I bought two of these and used a classic amp, the JL 500/1. The bass is undesired, solid, and balanced. I have used beefier subs in the past, but these absolutely produce what they say they will. They are a steal on sale, but still worth the regular price if not on sale.

Pros: Great Value. Little to no distortion. Fantastic lows when full 250 watts RMS is used.

Cons: None.

The sub is a great value for what you are getting. Sounds great. I have ran mtx, soundqubed, sundown audio, fi audio, memphis, eclipse, and many other subs. This sub really suprised me with how well it sounded.

Pros: Great sub for the money. Gets loud on low power and does handle over rated power.

Cons: Here is where the tiptoes comes in. I hooked this up in my car knowing I was going to blow it. Ran it at 2 ohm s at around 1300 watts rms. And. . Well it lasted about 30 seconds when I did that. Sub works great on 200 to 400 watts. For fun I thought I would see what it would take. I would buy these again for a budget build in a heartbeat. Just don't do like I did and run 5x rated power until the coil separated from the former. Again the sub is built well enough for the price point.

It's no theory, this sub is capable of loud, distortion free bass. I chose this sub because I was looking for a sub with dual 4ohm voice coils for wiring flexibility. There were more notable brands in the same price range with dual 4ohm voice coils but none had glass fiber cone other than the Sound Ordnance. I knew a glass fiber cone should provide the clean punch I was looking for so I took a gamble on the brand and I am glad I did. The build quality is solid and the sub sound great. There is a lot of value in this speaker.

Pros: Great Value, Distortion Free Bass

Cons: None
