Our take on the Sound Ordnance M-2250

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-2250 2-channel amplifier deploys 175 watts RMS to each channel, giving your music plenty of firepower. Or you can bridge the M-2250 to mobilize 500 watts RMS to your sub. An adjustable high-pass filter makes sure your full-range speakers operate within their optimum range and give you the best tone possible. If you're driving a sub, the variable bass boost and low-pass filter allow you to control your bass barrage at will.

The M-2250 amplifier uses sophisticated power supply and output technologies to ensure clean amplification from the inputs 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 crank up your system.

Although this amplifier has a port for a remote control built in, it's not functional, and a remote controller for this amp is not available.

Ok for the price, I returned it. Old school amp better

Written By Old TimerStereo, Aiken , SC on Friday, April 25, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
OK amp for the price but couldn't use as my old school Autotek 7050 BTS ( 22 x 2 @ 4 ohms ) was 4 db louder and hit much harder with 2 Alpine Type S 12" Subs in 1.25ft3 per side sealed box and lots of acoustic filler inside. My Autotek was probably around 200-250 watts mono as it is an old school cheater amp. Still, 500 watts should have been at least as good and was no where near. I used to compete back in the late 80's and early 90's. For the cheap price it is ok and would probably be better for a pair of 88 to 90 db efficiency 10's. I returned it since my old amp was much better. The return process was quick and easy and only cost a flat $10 for the return label. I have bought from Crutchfield since the early 90's. You get what you pay for. If all you got is this much then it is not bad for the $$. My Autotek was $600 back in 1989. Probably isn't fair to compare a competition amp to a consumer amp. For just good bass it will do but for really loud bass go with a high dollar name brand. Power cost $$$$$$$.
Pros:
Cheap, sounds ok . Looks impressive
Cons:
big, not a high currant type amp. Probably great with 10's given the low price.

Sound Ordnance M-2250 amp

Written By Chance, Granbury, TX on Friday, December 27, 2013
 
I have a 1998 Grand Marquis and I was cautious putting this with my 2 Memphis PR 10's in a ported pro box and WOW!!!! this amp makes my subs pound harder than any 12's I've heard in awhile. This amp is very reliable looks great makes the subs sound great and wont break the bank to buy. I will definitely have sound ordnance in my mind whenever I need any more car audio.
Pros:
great price, great amp and well worth the money
Cons:
little big but that's my only complaint

The M-2250 looks fantastic and provides more than enough wattage for my 12" Rockford Power Subwoofer. Everywhere I go people ask me about it, and want to hear it.
Pros:
Looks great, Easy setup, Good power, and adds to your cars character.

Only turns on with the radio if you attach it to the power FM antenna wire...

Bang for your buck

Written By Kb, Carlsbad, CA on Tuesday, September 24, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
While I'm happy with this amp, there are a few things it could do better. For starters, the size seems a bit large in comparison to other 500 watt amps I've had in the past. Also, the lip that extends over the leads for the power/ground makes it a bit if a challenge to secure your wiring. Also, it is difficult to adjust the amp, because the knobs are flush with surface of the amp. Not major issues, but seemingly easy fixes.
Pros:
Good sound at a very affordable price.
Cons:
Some functionality sacrificed for appearance.

Sound Ordnance M-2250 Amp

Written By 73 CJ5, Virginia on Monday, September 02, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is the second SO amp I have purchased from Crutchfield. Packaged together with a good head unit and quality speakers, you have a system that's very impressive. Mounted the amp directly under the driver's side seat and it fit perfectly.
Pros:
Pros are: Price, good specs, looks good if you should mount it where it would be visible. Could be an easy install determined by available space. I mounted it on a plate close under the driver's seat, off the floor and out of sight.
Cons:
No cons

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought two Sound Ordnance Amps the M4100 and M2250. The 2250 i used it to power my two alpine type r subs. Well lets just say the amp looks good, it does get hot, and its BIG. But overall it doesn't have enough power to give for the subs to hit hard. So I returned it so now I'm just waiting for another M4100 to use as a 2-channel to power the subs. Lets see how that goes.
Pros:
Nice Look
Cons:
Its BIG, not enough power for a pair of subs, and vents are on the bottom (WHY?)

Serves its purpose 100% and delivers clean unadulterated signal without power-drain when used properly with a 1.0 MicroFarad capacitor. 5 stars.
Pros:
Easy install, affordable, sleek and slim, serves its purpose perfectly.
Cons:
BIG DEAL HERE: Factory in-the-box comes with the bass boost already at +12db!! TURN THIS OFF before install, you have the immediate potential to damage your output audio equipment.

I bought one that was scratch and dent. You can not beat the price for this powerhouse! I have one Memphis 12 in a sealed box in the trunk of my Infiniti. With the gain halfway, the bass is deep and smooth with the sub flexing hard. I smell sawdust sometimes after listening to rap. Lol!
Pros:
Lots of power and a 3 year warranty
Cons:
I wish the RCA hookup was on the same side as the power hookup. And the amp is rather large.

Worth it without a doubt so far...

Written By p, PA on Wednesday, January 16, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Just finished installing this about a week ago - it's currently powering a pair of image dynamics chameleon components rated at 125rms a piece- it sounds marvelous with the gain not even half way up. I have absolutely no complaints regarding quality or anything like that. I just hope the amp lasts a long time.
Pros:
Great sound, cheap price (I got it when it was on sale for 100 bucks), the terminals use philips set style screws so you dont need to go searching through your allen key collection to find the "right" size.
Cons:
the only complain I have- is that I had to remove the shiny plastic end pieces because of my particular mounting set up- I couldn't get at any of the terminals while they were on there, so I had to wire up the whole amp before I could mount it... wasn't that bad, just thought i might be worth mentioning if you have spatial constraints regarding its mount set up and whatnot...

this amp rocks! from the moment i opened the package i was impressed , the price is excellent for the quality of the amp, the desighn of the packaging n thoroughness of the manual n related items tells me theres been some actually investment in R&D, im using it bridged in mono and the amp has plenty of power and actually more than i need for my 1 12" sub ,. really brought out the impact of the sub to my system and im very happy with the amp.
Pros:
plenty of power, flexibility control options, crossover, bridgeable etc...
Cons:
the mounting tabs are a little weak, but if you take youre time and properly install the amp i dont see a problem.

Solid built powerful amp

Written By James, Grand Blanc, MI on Friday, March 30, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This amp packs a punch when bridged. I have it hooked up to the B-24 subs and they sound more powerful now. I was using a 500watt mono amp for them, but it only put out 150watts at 4 ohm. I had it tuned (m-2250) perfectly in less than 5 minutes.
Pros:
powerful when bridged for 500 watts
Cons:
the plastic screws for the adjustments (ie: gain, lpf,hpf) are a soft plastic and strip easily, so make sure to use a proper sized philips tip screwdriver

Replaced Alpine m500 & Alpine 10" Type R with the SO B-24 box & the SO 2250 amp and all I can say is WOW.. The bass is amazing.. This thing booms and the speakers aren't even moving.. 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...

This amp is very solid, and well built. powered right up with no problems. definatly puts out the advertised power. Amp gets pretty warm during solid use, but not alarmingly hot. be sure to put in an open area if not a ventilated one. bass boost is nice, not a locked in 6 or 12 dbs, fully adjustable with a screw identical to gain or crossover adjustments. end caps ARE plastic, coated with chrome, be careful securing it down. hookup was easy and staight forward. all in all a very solid purchase at a good price.

I was looking for a decently priced amp that gave enough juice to get two 12s
thumping. I'm currently running this amp, non-bridged, and it gives an
incredible amount of bass out of the two subs. Will probably buy a second one
soon. Great buy if you're not looking to break the bank for good sub-power.

Bought this in January, with the free wiring kit it came with. Install was easy,
and the controls on it are simple. It's powering my Rockford Fosgate P2L 212s,
and it makes them sound fantastic. Lots of power for not a lot of price. There's
no remote for it, even though it has a spot to put one; Not enough to mark this
down a star. Sold out 4 days after I bought it, speaks for itself.

1st as mentioned before the end are plastic ( cosmetic )
2nd There are vents on the bottom of the amp and when it is mounted blocking these vents it
seems to get very warm. Once I mounted it with air flow pass both top and bottom of the amp
it runs cool.
3rd There is a place for a remote although Crutchfield does not carry one for it.

Good Value

Written By Deggy, Madison, WI on Tuesday, November 23, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I have had the M-2250 for 3 months now. I have it bridged to run 500w rms @ 4ohm. It
is hooked up to the SO B-24 2-12" bandpass box. HOLY CRAP! A Very nice combo.

- Lots of power for the price.
- Love the look of it.
- Good screw-clamping connectors for power wires.
- I have not yet experienced clipping at high volume. (But I'll keep trying!)
- I like the little Sound Ordnance dog tags that they send with it.
- At normal volume levels, the amp does not get hot, yet still provides good bass.
- After pushing it really hard for 30 minutes, the amp was quite warm. It didn't 'burn' my
hand, but I wouldnt want to hold it there for very long.
- When really pushing it, it makes my lights dim a little, which is to be expected with AB
class amps. Time to get a capacitor.
- Others have commented on the plastic end caps? Well, I'm pretty sure they are metal,
cuz when I was screwing in the power cables, I touched the end cap and it arced n
sparked, so be careful.
- The amp seems to have a spot to plug in a remote bass boost control, yet Crutchfield
Advisor say there is not one compatible with it.

Overall, the value for the price is excellent, hence the 5 star rating. If it cost over $300
like many 'name brand' amps with similar stats do, I may rate it slightly lower. The 3 year
warranty is what sealed the deal for me. Despite the minor low points, I love this amp
and would recommend it to anyone that wants high power rating for a low price.

Knock your socks off

Written By Patrick, Berryville, VA on Friday, October 08, 2010
 
WOW, I have this amp powering up the B-24 Sub. Nothing better than getting a bass massage while driving down the road. I have moved this setup to a new car and still no problems. As noted above the ends are plastic and I wish they were metal. Easy install, Nice eye appeal, wonderful overall. I am sold on Sound Ordnance. This amp really hits hard. My Step-daughter was in the car and her hair was moving so much she had to put it in a pony tail.

Sound Ordnance M-2250

I only have this turned up half way and it's more than enough for me. I'm
running it bridged on the 2 Dual 12's that Crutchfield sells enclosed.
Definitely turns heads. Great product

Awesome!

Written By Alex, Ft. Worth, Texas on Sunday, March 07, 2010
 
I am using this to push the Sound Ordnance B-24's at 500W bridged. It's a beautiful amp in person, and fit nicely with my EA4200 behind the 12's in the trunk of a 97 accord. The amp doesn't seem to get hot, but it gets warm to the touch. No problems so far and makes the subs sound great! The only thing I wish was different was the metallic sides - they're plastic, not aluminum/metal.

  • Thanks for your questions Chance. I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone or online chat. They can help ensure that you find an amp that will work well with your subs and your budget. [ Jeff Staff  Dec 10, 2013 ]
