Overview

Our take on the Sound Ordnance™ B-12

The Sound Ordnance B-12 loaded sub enclosure gives your sound system a decisive advantage in the battle for great sound. The 12" polypropylene woofer with its rubber surround offers big-time boom you can really feel, and the box comes fortified with rugged medium-density fiberboard construction for durability. Tough black carpeting keeps your car's interior free from abrasions, while the enclosure's recessed panels allow it to fit into more trunks and cargo spaces. Rounded inner corners on the slot vent minimize port noise, so you'll enjoy smooth, responsive bass.

This sub sounds great. I used it in the back of my wife's new 4 Runner. The tune matching between the encloser and the woofer is spot on. Powered the this with a Kicker 43DXA125.2 amp, connected to the factory rear speaker wires. Sounds great will all types of music.

1 question already asked

I was told by crutchfield to match at least 75% of the RMS of a sub a couple years ago. With that said, running the Sound Ordnance M2100 with a bridged connection is what im using, and it works awesome. [ StevenHW  Oct 20, 2015 ]
Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp for your subs I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences between the amp models and help you make the best choice for your system. [ Krissy  May 18, 2014 ]  Staff
