Features

Materials: The Sound Ordnance BB12-200V Bass Bunker is an unloaded, hatchback-style ported enclosure for one 12" subwoofer. It is constructed of 5/8" MDF (medium-density fiberboard), covered in black carpet.

Internal Box Volume: The enclosure has 1.83 cubic feet of airspace.

Terminals: The BB12-200V is equipped with a pair of spring-post speaker terminals mounted in the rear panel. The spring terminals will accept bare wire up to 10 gauge, pin connectors, and single banana plugs, but are spaced too far apart for dual banana plugs. Inside the enclosure the terminal has an attached 24" length of speaker wire for connecting the subwoofer.

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

A
I had planned on building a custom ported box to fit under the third row bench seat of my van and after researching my subs air space requirements vs port size the cost of materials these are the best way to go, their in the mid range of my air space requirements for a ported box they will still fit under the 3rd row seat and I don't have to design a huge custom box that can't be moved once installed under the seat. [ STEVEN  Apr 07, 2016 ]
A
i purchased an alpine 12 inch type r sub and was looking to put it in a exceptional ported box. writing this review it is not installed and i do not have it yet. but by the other reviews on this box you can see this box and the people who make it are praised for their good work. [ donta  Mar 07, 2016 ]

I already own a 10 inch S/O subwoofer box that is fantastic! [ Randall  Mar 01, 2016 ]
A
I chose this because it's the closest size match for my 1262W Infinity sub that I could find through Crutchfield. Also The interior, from what I can see in the pictures, looks to be of a quality build. [ Samuel  Feb 18, 2016 ]
A
The description/details info was very thorough and consequently I concluded that this would meet my application requirements. Thanks. [ david  Feb 01, 2016 ]

I looked at other boxes, I like the way this one was built with 45 degree angles to channel the bass [ Marvin  Jan 21, 2016 ]

I have 12 inch American bass elite subwoofer it calls for 1.75-2.50 ported @32 Hertz this enclosure should work right?
[ Jimmy  Mar 23, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
This box is fairly close to the recommended specs listed by American Bass. This box is also better built than most other prefabs. You will be more than happy with this box. I only wish they made a bigger dual 12 box. I highly recommend this box !!!!

You may set your own particular parameters by your choices of equipment and installation methods. Look online for instructions or contact Crutchfield tech support.

Q
What is the D1 and D2 of the speakers box size?
[ Richard  Dec 17, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
D1 is the enclosure depth at the base (15-5/8"), D2 is the depth at the top of the enclosure where it's slightly narrower (12-5/8"). I hope that helps. My bio: https://www.crutchfield.com/bio/Ryan

Q
Will this box pair with a Rockford p2d4 12" ? My thinking was with the sub displacement that the box may be a little small !
[ Trent  Jul 24, 2017 ]

A
My box has a American Bass 12 inch in it. Works really well and don't seem to have any sound issues. My sub is pushing about 1.3k watts. I have the ported box too.
[ Ladd  Jul 27, 2017 ]
Q
would this box work good with an infinity kappa 120.9w? It recommends 2 sq. ft. but this is the closest i can find to that size.. 1.87 sq. ft.

A
Not sure, I'm running a Kicker CVR and it hits pretty good...
[ Dereake  Nov 26, 2016 ]
A
Yes , I did quick search for min spec 1.0 - 2.0 sq.ft. recommended for your Sub. I've tried sealed, band pass and by far Ported Box is IMO best all round Sound. I recommend Utube and look into a few things if your not aware, like the Big 3 wire upgrade, a decent capacitor if your alternator sucks, maybe your lucky and their is an alternator upgrade available for you. You need Big power for Big Continuous BASS. I got to thank utube for my current Bass build 1 12in Sub. 4 6x9s 4 6/12in Door speakers 2 AMPs one is a 4 Ch other is a Mono block Sub amp in a 1992 Mustang. Good luck and may Happy Bass be in your future
[ Gabriel  Nov 16, 2016 ]
A
Yes id say close enough! I mean the box is meant for more condensed better sound but If you're worried about sacrificing sound go bigger!
[ Jenna  Nov 15, 2016 ]
A
I think that's pretty close. Besides, the box volume is only "recommended" as you say. People will use larger or smaller boxes to tweak the sound to their liking. With a smaller box you would get tighter bass but I doubt you would notice a 6% reduction in box size. As for the box itself, I like mine a lot. Its quality construction impressed me and I'm very happy with it. Just make sure it fits where you're going to put it because its relatively large for a one 12-inch sub box. Good luck.
[ Rod  Nov 15, 2016 ]
Q
Does this fit 12" alpine type R?
[ Gaelen  Nov 05, 2016 ]
2 answers
A
Yes it should, I have a Type S and I would assume both subs are made on the same frame.
[ Bradley  Nov 05, 2016 ]
A
It should fit fine man but honestly I would get a larger box. It's a small box for such a good quality speaker you know? A bigger box (still 12" hole) would make it sound oh so much better
[ TREVOR DWIGHT  Nov 05, 2016 ]
Q
Would it be necessary to add damping material to the inside of this enclosure?
[ Noah  Apr 05, 2016 ]
2 answers
A
You don't have to but you could stuff it with some poly material. That's an old school trick to simulate more cubic feet . It slows down the air movement coming out of the port making the box seem bigger than it is.
[ DAVID  Apr 06, 2016 ]
A
I have this enclosure and it works fine with my Alpine SWR-12D4 and no damping material. I think damping material is typically only used in smaller, sealed enclosures. I'm not 100% sure on that though.

i had 12 inch jl w7 will this box fit?
[ Hung  Dec 20, 2015 ]

A
If you have the JL Audio 12w7AE-3, for a sealed box you would need 1.375 cubic feet. For a ported box you would need 1.75 cubic feet. Hopefully this helps you.

Q
Will this enclosure fit a shallow mount speaker?
[ John  Aug 07, 2015 ]

It fits a regular size 12 so I would imagine a shallow mount would fit
[ RYAN  Aug 09, 2015 ]
A
Yes it would! I put a RE sx 12'.... ( I know i need more air space)
[ ZACHARY R  Aug 08, 2015 ]
A
I don't see why not but make sure your shallow mount can be used in a sealed or ported box check your cu.foot on the sealed and ported for the woofer.
[ Calvin  Aug 08, 2015 ]
A
Yes, keep in mind that it's only 1.75 cu ft

Hi steve! I believe it would handle your subs just fine. If anything should go wrong Crutchfield has a great return policy. Good luck! And may the BOOM be with you!
[ thomas  May 19, 2015 ]
A
Yes, this box is built very strong and sturdy. It can take whatever you dish out.
[ mitchell  May 18, 2015 ]
A
Easily.....................
[ DONALD  May 18, 2015 ]
A
It should. It is very sturdy and well built. The joints are sealed to avoid air leaks as well. Note: it is heavier than its size implies.
[ roland  May 18, 2015 ]
A
Yes, the box is very sturdy and good for any type of music. However, if you mainly listen to rap, look around for a box tuned down around the 32 hz range. It makes a world of difference
[ BRAEDEN  May 18, 2015 ]
Q
would putting this box on its side affect anything if i feel so inclined?
[ Jenna  May 07, 2015 ]
9 answers
A
As long as you don't block the ports and secure the box in place. The box on its side I think would be a little unstable.
[ DAVID  Apr 06, 2016 ]
A
It shouldn't, but if you do don't cover up the port of the box or it will affect the sound.
[ Bradley  May 08, 2015 ]
A
IT shouldn't affect anything as far as bass or performance if you put the box on its side. However, the box will be taller on its side so if you have a car it might not fit in the trunk
[ LANCE  May 08, 2015 ]
A
It wouldn't effect sound but it would not stay on its side during medium braking and acceleration without additional securement.
[ Edward  May 08, 2015 ]
A
That will be fine to do that
[ DAVID  May 08, 2015 ]
A
As far as I know it wouldn't have any affect on the box or sub beside possibly distorting the sound a bit since both holes for the ported box are on the bottom. I'm not positive either way though but i hope I could help a little!
[ THOMAS L  May 08, 2015 ]
A
it should not affect anything, it is just an inclusure after all.
[ Gilberto  May 08, 2015 ]
A
First of all speaker placement does effect the sound. Just don't lay it over or block the ports of the box. And make sure that the box is secured as to not damage your speaker or pull out your wires from the box... hope this helps you out...
[ DAVID  May 08, 2015 ]
A
No, just make sure there is 3 to 4 inches of clearance between the ports (holes in the box) and any obstructions (trunk walls, items,etc.)
[ Joseph  May 08, 2015 ]
Q
Does the internal volume of the box include the port displacement? Or is that separate?
[ James  Apr 28, 2015 ]
4 answers
A
port is included in the internal volume.They are built well and produce great bass.
[ Brad  May 02, 2015 ]
A
Yes it's included not separated
[ Calvin  May 02, 2015 ]
A
The internal cubic feet is measured as you see the box. If you remove the ports it will be larger internal volume. The box sounds great and is very responsive, I'd compare it to a sealed enclosure as far as accuracy and tone, but you can tell it's ported when you get some lows going.
[ PHYLLIS  May 01, 2015 ]
A
Yes it does
[ ROBERT  May 01, 2015 ]
Q
Is there an allowance figured for speaker displacement or dose it need subtracted from the volume?
[ josh  Jan 19, 2015 ]
3 answers
A
Hi Josh - The manufacturer of the sub you're planning to use has most likely already done the math for you. The sub manual will include suggestions for the optimum enclosure size for both sealed, or ported boxes. And you cant go wrong with Sound Ordnance's quality construction for pumping out rock solid bass with no distortion!
[ KARL D  Jan 21, 2015 ]
A
I not sure exactly what your asking.I had a Kicker 12''sub-woofer and a separate amp for it and another amp for the Rockford Fosgate speakers in the car, a 2005 Pontiac GTO,with a Pioneer AVH-3500BHS player,and the street wire monster wire.Everything sounds great.
[ christopher  Jan 20, 2015 ]
A
That is a good question. I'm not sure of the correct answer. I would suggest either asking someone at Crutchfield or Sound Ordinance.
[ JT  Jan 20, 2015 ]
Q
Can this box be cut to fit a square 12" Kicker L7 or would the bracing be in the way?
[ Abraham  Nov 19, 2014 ]
2 answers
A
I'm not positive on this, but I think the tubes at the bottom on both sides would get in the way... I would just buy an appropriate/ square box to start with. If they don't them available at Crutchfield, then do a search for "box for square subs". Lots of options out there.
[ JT  Nov 20, 2014 ]
A
the bracing isnt a problem, but the triangular ports on the bottom of the enclosure would interfere with an L7. i have an L7 15" now and best bet is to have a box made for the sub. i got a nice one made for 200$ at an audio shop.

A
the cubic vol. on your sub is 1.405 for ported and 1.105 for sealed, this bunker is 1.83 cubic in. it should work pretty good

Yes it will bro I got a F150 and it sits on my back seat no rattles clean sound love it. The best box i have ever had. Its worth it
