Display of power
The Sound Ordnance B-24 enclosure is home to a pair of 12" polypropylene woofers in airtight individual chambers, plus a third chamber with a slot port for low-down bass vibrations. This bandpass design produces huge bass impact, and you can watch the woofers work through their chambers' acrylic windows. The enclosure handles up to 500 watts RMS, so it's a great match for the Pioneer amp.
The Pioneer GM-D9601 amp's Class D amplifier technology keeps this powerful amp cool, allowing it to be mounted in small and out-of-the-way places. The amp delivers 500 watts RMS to the Sound Ordnance enclosure, so you can count on some serious bass. The amp also features speaker-level inputs to use if your stereo doesn't have RCA connectors, a low-pass filter to tune the bass response to your car, and a wired remote that allows you to control the bass from the front seat.

More details on the Sound Ordnance/Pioneer 500-Watt Bass Package
CEA 2006 Compliant: The Pioneer GM-D9601 mono subwoofer amplifier power ratings are measured according to the Consumer Electronics Association's CEA-2006 standards. These standards allow you to accurately compare the rated power output of all CEA-2006 compliant amplifiers, even from different brands. Manufacturers who adhere to the standards can display the CEA-2006 logo on their products and packaging. CEA-2006 Specifications:
- Power Output:
- 500 watts x 1 at 4Ω with <1% THD+N
- 800 watts x 1 at 2Ω with <1% THD+N
- 1,200 watts x 1 at 1Ω with <1% THD+N
- Signal to Noise Ratio: 75 dBA
1Ω Stable: The GM-D9601 is capable of powering load impedances down to 1Ω.
Auto Turn-on: When using a high voltage speaker level input, a signal sensing circuit will automatically turn the amp on and off along with the source unit.
- Width: 13"
- Height: 2.375"
- Depth: 7.875"
Gain Control: The gain control is continuously variable from 200 mV to 6.5 V.
Crossover: The low pass crossover is always engaged, and is continuously variable from 40 to 240 Hz.
Bass Boost: The bass boost circuit is variable from 0 to +18 dB, centered at 50 Hz. Adjustment is made using the included wired remote.
Wired Remote: The bass boost circuit is controlled using the included wired remote, which can be mounted within easy reach of the driver. The remote has integral flanges on both sides to mount the unit under the dash. The remote measures:
- Width: 1.73" (2.63" including mounting tabs)
- Height: 0.75"
- Depth: 1.62" (2.2" including control knob and cable)
Power: The power and ground connections are set screw terminals that will accommodate up to 4-gauge wire. The included 3mm Allen wrench is used to tighten and loosen the terminals. Pioneer recommends different power and ground wire gauges based on the length of the power wire:
- 6-Gauge: up to 11' 10"
- 4-Gauge: up to 21'
Remote Turn-on: The remote connection is a set screw terminal that will accommodate up to 8-gauge wire. The included 3mm Allen wrench is used to tighten and loosen the terminals.
Speaker Connections: There are two pair of speaker output set screw terminals, internally shorted together so it's easy to connect two subwoofers. The terminals will accommodate up to 8-gauge wire. The included 3mm Allen wrench is used to tighten and loosen the terminals.
Signal Input: The amplifier features one pair of stereo RCA inputs. If no line level signal is available, use the included speaker wire to RCA adapters.
RCA Output: One pair of preamp output jacks provide a convenient way to daisy-chain an additional amplifier without running another set of RCA cables from the front of the vehicle to the amplifier location. The output is not affected by the internal crossover.
Materials: The Sound Ordnance B-24 is a pre-loaded bandpass-style enclosure with dual 12" subwoofers. It is constructed of 5/8" MDF (medium-density fiberboard), covered in black carpet. It also features dual clear acrylic front windows for viewing the subwoofers. The subwoofers feature polypropylene cones with rubber surrounds, 2" voice coils, and a heavy-gauge stamped steel basket.
Box Design: The enclosure has a sealed chamber in front of each subwoofer, and a vented chamber behind both subwoofers. The front-firing slot port is 2-13/16" wide and 13-1/2" high, and is centered between the speakers. The box has a total of 2.9 cubic feet of airspace.
Terminals: The B-24 is equipped with a single set 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 two drivers are wired together to present a 4Ω load to the speaker terminals.
Brackets: Brackets are recommended for securing the enclosure to your vehicle.
