Overview

Our take on the Sound Ordnance™ B-17

Sound Ordnance designed the B-17 bandpass subwoofer to be the bass fortress in your vehicle's sound system. Its 12" polypropylene woofer is mounted inside a sturdy enclosure, between an airtight sealed chamber and a second chamber that boasts a generous slot port for massive air movement. This bandpass design increases speaker efficiency, for impressive bass firepower from a relatively small box. Best of all, you can watch the woofer swing into action behind the clear acrylic front window.

The heavy-duty speaker terminals provide excellent connections, and the rugged black carpet cover with the Sound Ordnance logo lets your competition know you mean business. And you'll have extra peace of mind with Sound Ordnance's 3-year warranty behind your investment. Add a suitable amplifier, mount the system safely in your trunk or cargo area, and get ready for a bass barrage.

Awesome bass that doesn't take up the entire trunk. Hits just as hard, if not harder than my kenwood 2x 10" bandpass sub which took up the entire trunk space in my eclipse.

While helping my brother to choose audio equipment to replace his factory system I recommended the Sound Ordnance B-17. After it was installed and I heard the sound I was so impressed that I ordered one for the system that installed in my son's car.I was so equally impressed by the deep tight bass it produces that now I'm replacing my 10" enclosed subwoofer with much better sounding Sound Ordnance B-17 [ Lawrence  Dec 14, 2016 ]
