Sound Ordnance designed the B-24 dual bandpass subwoofer to be the bass fortress in your vehicle's sound system. The sturdy enclosure houses a pair of 12" polypropylene woofers in individual airtight sealed chambers, plus a third chamber that features a generous slot port for massive air movement. The enclosure's bandpass design increases speaker efficiency dramatically for impressive bass firepower. Best of all, you can watch the woofers swing into action behind the clear acrylic front windows.
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 great looking box and sounds great...also great price
Couldn't be happier, from ordering to shipping to receiving. Again, couldn't be happier Thanks Crutchfield
I love to play guess what's in my trunk? I play a great demo and that have people guess what's in my trunk. Every person has said I had high end gear from the top manufacturers. They are all stunned when I open my trunk and find out how much I paid for my system.
Pros: Even at low volume it adds so much depth to the music. I thought for sure my wife would hate this sub but she loves it at low volume.
Cons: You have to give it some time to dial in your system with a bandpass box to compensate for the clarity issues that exisist with all bandpass boxes. Well worth the time and the performance gains of a bandpass for me are worth it.
Beautiful looking 12s i gotta say with the price i was a lil sceptical bit after installing i fell in love instantly
These subs are 100% worth the price. Worth every penny.
Pros: easy install, great price, awesome product
Pros: Easy install
Great item supper fast shipping
Great subs and box! they sound so good. and at a great price. would highly recommend them.
Added this sub to my son's 2016 Honda Accord Sport - great sound, awesome base - remote is very useful. What a value for the price - great looking sub box.
Pros: Sound, Price
Hard hitting, solid bass. Perfect match for my 20yo Kenwood amp.
Pros: Good sound, solid bass. With crisp tones. Craftsmanship on the box and carpet wrap.
Cons: Haven't found one yet.
Amazing subs. Bass is awesome and clear
Installed in a 1997 caddy deville, easy install. This box rocks the car with original stereo. I have allready recomended it. Friends love it. If your lookin for big bass this is the one to buy!!!
Pros: Easy install, i mounted amp on a diagnal to the box so adjustments are accesable
This product is excellent
Pros: Good product
For the price you can not beat them again you can not beat the price the subs are amazing Best purchase I've made in a while
Pros: Price bass is amazing
Cons: Just a tad to bulky
Once again, Crutchfield comes through with solid recommendations. This double 10" box with plexiglass covers and a port really works well, sounds great, and is solid. Our project is on a teenager's budget and we were going to build our own to save some money, but there is no way that you could build this box at home and do it for less. A great buy. We ran the SO 2250 amp and used a complete sub cable kit for a really easy installation.
Pros: Solid. Sounds Great. Looks better than it should.
Cons: It's very large and heavy. We installed it in a P71 Police Interceptor so trunk space is not an option. If you are running something smaller, look again.
These things slam super hard , for the very cheap price there amazing , I would definetley buy them . i have the matching amp also , M-2250 and It's an amazing amp it puts out extreme clean power , I couldn't believe how much power I got for under 300$ . I would recommend these to anyone. On top of the perfect sound it had a super sleep cool enclosure , therefore it looks 100x better than normal subs and also can never be damaged . Best deal! Buy them , don't overthink it , will stick with sound ordnance from now on :-)
Pros: -Cheap -Super loud -Clean -Sleek Look -Lots of bass -Match really well with M-2250 -Can't be damaged
Cons: -Enclosure is pretty heavy but that's no conern
This is a great sub, the price is low, and definitely enough bass for the average person looking for a clean sound system. And built very well. It survived a wreck, that sent it threw a rear window with no damage and as clear as the day it was installed.
Pros: Built great Loud Affordable Clean bass
Cons: Size, its a very large box Finding a 4 ohm amp big enough is a slight challenge.
These subwoofers cannot play a wide frequency range but for the frequencies that it can play, it has no trouble playing them loud. paired with a Kenwood digital amp at 300 watts rms they played nice and strong.
Pros: Low cost, flashy design, efficient enclosure design
Cons: narrow band of frequency response
Sounds very good in my car and bass is very loud Got 400 watts in a 4ohm load from a old school amp
Pros: Quality built
Cons: Waiting to buy this box
Delivery was promt and everything came well packaged very happy about that. The system sounds awesome at half capacity you know you have to given the speakers breaking in period before you can turn. Up the wattage and the bass still bumps out of my trunk. The price was more then reasonable for this equipment. If your looking for clear fidelity hard hitting crisp bass this is it.
Pros: The price
Cons: i don't have anything negative to say its a win win
Cons: Just have to rewire it
I have had too many high end systems to mention. Truck was in a music video (Cars that go Boom), as well as sponsored by a few high end manufactures back in the 80-90's. Was not expecting much but since I have a Excursion and one 12" was just not enough, I figured it would likely be good enough. It was far better than good enough. It surpassed what I would have ever expected for a sub 200$ band pass with 2 subs. Running both off a 5th channel Polk Audio 5 channel amp at 400W and it rocks.
Pros: cost, compact, band bass.
Cons: Silver cone subs, large name displayed on top of box.
These speakers are incredible. Great clear sound and so much punch. Was actually nervous that it would be to much!! would definitely recommend!!
Pros: easy set up/very sturdy
Great unit at a great price the sound is incredible
Pros: Easy hook up
Great speakers. I was worried bc I had never heard of the brand before but I was like alright let's try something new, and they work amazingly. If you want a good speaker with great bass then you should get these.
Pros: Awesome sound easy hook up
Crutchfield did an amazing job. I bought these subs, speakers, a stereo, and an amp all off of Crutchfield and I could not be happier with the end result. I had minimal knowledge on how to install something like this and everytime I had a question one of Crutchfield's advisors were there to help me. I accidentally blew one of my new kenwood speakers and I called Crutchfield about if and they sent me a new pair no questions asked. Again, couldn't be happier with how everything turned out would highly recommend these subs and other sound ordinance products I am more than satisfied with my new setup. I have the amps hooked up to the m2250 2 channel amp and it pushes the subs just right. They sound fantastic. The amp is easy to tune and I can't wait to break everything in. Crutchfield did a great job helping me and I want to say thanks for everything you guys have done for me you can't find service like this anywhere else I have nothing but good to say about you guys. Great job.
Pros: Fantastic service. Great sound. Easy to install, couldn't be happier.
Box is heavy but made right pumps out some serious bass. i have a 1200 watt boss amp and i only use 300 watts for now and it kicks butt you can use a 600 watt amp on it even a 300 watt amp good price for the money
Pros: good price dont need alot of amperage to push the speakers good bass
Cons: Nothing bad so far
10/10 would buy again. You're gonna have a tough time finding this much bass for any less money.
Car shaking bass, accurate and dynamic frequency range, and impeccable design. But the best part is the price. This much for the best of everything in a sub.
Was gonna order the JL AUDIO 12s till i saw these. I was skeptical but the reviews sold me. Still tuning these, but couldn't be more impressed. These are on a jl audio 500/1 mono amp. Still turning the gain down. I could turn them up but in my typhoon its incredibly loud. I would recommend these to anyone i can. The box design is awesome. They look great and gave me the wow factor i was looking 4 at shows. Save some money and sound big. 1 1/2days to deliver to Texas. Crutchfield is the bomb
Pros: Great sound for the buck. Won't break the bank
Cons: Should have bought it sooner
It was the reviews that lead me to purchase these subs and the matching m2250 and i can tell you that they are spot on. This thing puts out amazing sound, hits hard, very hard! I've got it set up to half power and it's honestly too much for me. Sware my car is going to fall apart lol. Sound ordnance for life! Bravo on an outstanding product in high quality, performance and value!
Pros: Stunning workmanship, size and weight proportionate, sound quality, HITS VERY HARD.
Just like all the other reviews, they are great. Paired them with the SO m-2250 amp and I couldn't be happier. The have my Envoy booming and the amp is barely turned up. I look forward to tuning it and seeing what they can do.
Pros: Huge sound for little cash.
Cons: I wish I had them a long time ago!
I have a b-24 12" and I must say, its the real deal, I'm still working on my audio system but so far so good. I haven't tried any other name brand company but I'm satisfied with sound ordnance, I'm still looking up what matches it, meaning radio and amplifier, I'm thinking I'm going to go with the sound ordnance amplifier also and a pioneer radio. But thanks sound ordnance for suggesting the speakers. .ILOVETHEM GREAT BASS
Pros: Great bass
These subwoofers hit really hard and sound great, I have a Sound Ordnance 4050 4 channel amp and I bridged the rear channels to this subwoofer box and my full range speakers to the left and right front channels of my amp and man the sound is great I love this box and Sound Ordnance is my new favorite brand.
Pros: Great sound, great price, great quality.
I Bought these and had them in my truck for a while, bought the matching amp and hocked them up. I am amazed, i drive a 96 Bonneville which is a boat and it feels like im sitting in a massage chair when i got the volume up. They shake all my mirrors and make people turn heads. i am beyond impressed
I was incredible impressed by the value presented in this sub box. I've been a bit of a brand snob in the past, and was a little skeptical. Wow. I was wrong. This puts on terrific bass.
Pros: Price, value, BOOM!
Bought this and paired it with the amp M-2250. The sound is amazing! More Bass than i will ever need. My head unit is tuned down to -13 and it hits way loud. Can not wait till these subs are broke in so i can really blast the bass.
Pros: Awesome setup
I am completely satisfied with my product..
Dude, all I can say is these subs are awesome! I love the sound. I get exactly what I need out of these subs. I have a Boss 2000 watt amp and it does justice. I put these in my 1987 S10 blazer. No rattling at all. Bass is clear and doesn't flush out the lyrics. Crutchfield did me justice for the price. They were at my doorstep in 1 1/2 days. 10 am to be exact. Can't beat it
Pros: All around product
Bought as a gift for my 18 year old son and installed the day after Christmas. Took some effort to fit in the trunk of his G5 (had to remove the back seats), but the sound is AMAZING. Super big bass hits with little distortion. And it just looks badass.
Pros: Great looks, great sound, and an excellent value for the money.
Cons: Dimensions should be stated more clearly.
Got these as a Christmas present to replace my junky MTX Audio 10" single sub. Holy Crap. Paired with my Power Acoustik 600 watt amp at about 70% gain these things rattle my trunk like crazy. I defenitely need some dynamat to stop the rattling but these things hit HARD with the trunk open standing behind it. Great for the price, I was skeptical. Came with a cool sticker. ??????????
Pros: Big punch Big bass Look kickbutt Clean sound Easy install (if you already have a wiring kit installed) Cool sticker in the box
Cons: Big Really Big. My Mazda 3 has 0 trunk space now. Lots of rattle in my car, I just need some dynamat
Exceeded my expectations! First time I tested these out I was in my garage with the door shut... Bad idea. The whole house was shaking and windows rattled. Great buy, but be ready to do some extra tightening of screws in your trunk and putting some sort of material to absorb some of the heavy hits in places that you never know could shake like they do with these. Would definitely recommend going with the sound ordnance M-2250 amp, it's made for these and really puts out some great bass.
best low priced subs iv ever had
Pros: easy to set up and good quallty bass for the price
Cons: could be a little louder
Amazing sound and a great value to boot.
Pros: Plug and play ease.
Pretty good product
Pros: Good sound quality
It sounds good easy to install. it's not as big as what i kept seeing from the reviews i still have about 6 inches on each side of the sub woofer in my 1998 Buick park avenue. looks nice kinda wish i had the option for 2 speaker wire locations instead of just 1 plug for both. i can see the logic why have two areas that can mess up why not just 1. but it would still be nice to lets say if one sub is blown u have the option to only use 1. with just a quick disconnect.. over all i would give it a 4.5 because of the glass being scratched but i think it's a good deal. great Bass package and cheaper than other ones on Crutchfield's website.
Pros: great sound, easy install 6 inches on either side in my trunk in a 1998 Buick park avenue.
Cons: I spent the full amount and still got scratches on my glass.. not sure if the sub is fully broken in.
when I first bought this box and amplifier I was worried that it wouldn't quite have enough bass for me. boy, was I wrong. this box is unbeatable in every way the price is perfect, it looks nice, and it sounds AMAZING. listen to everyone's advice when they recommend the m2250 Sound Ordnance Amp. Still astonished at the sound quality. These subs hit HARD yet still have plenty of sustain. Two thumbs up
Pros: Amazing sound quality Amazing Price Beautiful enclosure
Cons: None :)
great piece sounds great. excellent for your money
Pros: great sound good build
Amazing these subs hit as hard as any subs i have got in the past i would highly recommend these subs!!
Pros: Insane bass good range hits really hard
Cons: Box is big but all subs have big box
Simply a great great subwoofer. Honestly if you're having any doubts about how hard this will hit trust me. It hits hards. I paired this with the matching 2250 Sound Ordnance Amp and its all this sub needs. Im driving a 1996 Corolla and this thing hits so hard you can feel it vibrate the drivers seat. The people sitting in my backseat tell me all the time to turn the radio down because the vibrations are so strong they make them sick. It sounds amazing. Outside of the car you can definitely hear the the rattles of the subwoofer. I have no sound dampening on it but I will soon. But yea you can hear this sub from a block away for sure.
Pros: Everything. Heavy hits. Deep bass. Rattles. Loud. Everything.
Cons: None. Get this ish
Great sound and a such an inexpensive price.
Pros: Great bass for not much cost.
Great pair of subs and definitely wroth the money
Pros: Easy to use
Cons: Box is a lil big
These subs are just what I needed. I'm sixteen so I was just looking for something cheap with good reviews. I got the Sound Ordnance M-4100 amp to go with it and the sound quality is great. These subs are very well priced considering how hard the bass hits. I think these would be perfect for someone who is just trying to find a good deal on some good subs. They look just as awesome as they sound and the glass cover is good so that nothing can damage the subs when I have stuff rolling around in the trunk. All around great deal considering the quality of the product. Definitely happy that I got these. I've only had them for about four months but I have had no problems so far.
Pros: Bass hits hard Stylish Good price
Cons: The box is pretty big and it barely fit in my trunk.
Update: have had these for a couple years now, and they still sound as great as day 1. however, i have grown away from the bandpass boom sound, so i put the subs in a sealed box, with the same 2250 amp, and they sound great. tight and hard hitting. definatly worth the money, almost 3 years of beating them and the amp, and not 1 problem, ever.
Pros: die hard performance.
I bought these thinking how difficult and how risky these subs may be. After getting them I am surprised how well they perform. I've heard 2 12's before and these sound a ton better than the others. I have them paired with the S/O M-2250 amp and they sound amazing. I have to turn the amp way down and roll the windows down to even stand being in the car with the volume less than halfway up. It's the best investment you could possible make when it comes to car audio.
Pros: Everything about them is awesome. They are for a great price and the sound quality is even better. Nice clean heavy bass.
Cons: There isn't anything bad to say about them.
Unbelieveable bass and power for the price.... I have these coupled with the Sound Ordnance m-2250 amp...... along with the price, outstanding quality and crutchfield's amazing support this product can"t be beat... we love Crutchfield
At first i was spectical about buying this sub... never heard the name or heard how it sounds or seen its craftmanship... but after a dissapointing event through amazon.. and months of planning my equipment to install.. i decided to take a shot.... for 1!... the price!... 130.00 free shipping! and 3 yr waruntee!!.. i couldnt pass that up!.. this sub fitted into the specs as far as wattages and size i was looking for my system..these subs hit hard and gives a nice low base... my 04 maxima rattles lik crazy!!!!.. im in the process of instaling dampening mateial to my trunk..lol..over all.. i am VERY satisified with this product..highly recommrnd !!
Pros: size.. wattage... craftmanship
Cons: should of bought sooner!
Great subs that put out a lot of bass. I was surprised how hard they kick for the price. I am really happy with them.
Pros: Looks great, great price, quality sound, nicely made.
Super responsive, Even at lower volume this rig delivers.
Pros: Nice clear front and small overall foot print
I bought these subs to put in my system and as of now only have them running off my head unit (about 50 watts @ 1) I'm still waiting for my amp to come in. I just wanted to see how they sounded and I was extremely impressed. Only hooked up to my head unit they thumped good enough to shake my car. They look sharp and are built tough. I would recommend these to anyone. Awesome buy and you won't be disappointed. I'm excited to see what they'll do with a amp pushing them!
These speakers are insanely good and they look awesome. I've got them hooked up to a sound ordinance amp at 500w. These things will kick. Highly recommended.
Pros: Looks. Cost. Sound.
well like I said its a strong build box I like the fiberglass over the speakers good protection and the sound was not what I was expecting shocked me really because of the price when the bass hits you can feel the air from the port blowing on you
Pros: all around nice setup for the money
Cons: wish the carpet came in different colors
I had no idea how to set up subs and an amp but using everything that comes with this and using crutchfield customer support, it was fairly painless. I matched it with the m2250 amp and it sounds great so far.
Very nice subs easy setup they are super loud nice lows clean with little distortion
Pros: Coolness factor, sound quality
I bought this sub to add to the sound system in my pontoon boat. I could not be happier. Plenty of thump for the money. It looks really cool too with the embroidered emblem and see through plastic panels. It sounds great on my boat I can only imagine would would sound even better in an enclosed car space.
Pros: Great price! Great sound.
Cons: Kind of big, but if you have the space no problem
subs sounded fine out of the box, but you get what you pay for.... nothing spectacular like the reviews make it seem. has very limited range especially when it comes to real low notes. I got the matching amp from sound ordinance and the amp seems to get very hot very fast, after about 30 minutes of driving the amp feels like its on fire. after about 6 months they just died. they sound fine at first but after about 6 months you will be wanting to replace them. spend more money and get something that will last
Pros: you have bad speakers to show off for looks
Cons: you have bad looking speakers that cant produce the sound you would expect from cool speakers
These are honestly the best deal I have come accross in a long time. I was skeptical at first because people were basically drooling over these subs and i felt as though it was too good to be true to be honest. but then I saw the 3 year warranty so I was like whatevs and just decided to buy them. and all I can say is wow. I bought these with the matching M2250 amp and 4 gauge wiring kit and these things pound HARD. My friend has p1 punches and these destroy those easily. The only problem i'm having so far is that the amp gets a little hot when i run these for like 30 minutes at a time, but it's basically unnoticeable. Each genre of music sounds great, but I honestly only listen to rap and hip hop and these are perfect for that. The bass pounds my entire tahoe and when I had my friend pull up to me and listen to them, I got his rear view mirror to shake as well lol. Not to mention that every single person who has looked at them has said "those look nice". They look sick as heck in person. If you're looking for some nasty bass on a budget these are perfect for you. I would definitely reccomend this to anyone. I guarentee you this will be all the bass you need, because you can either tone them down to super quiet or so loud you can't even hear the music, and everything in between. I just keep them on -3 and i can't even use my own rear view. old school blindspot checks for meh. alright well that's all I got to say about these. Definitely a must buy.
Cons: your call smells like carpet the first few days of breaking them in
A great box and woofer set. Great addition to my car stereo!
I installed these with the Sound Ordnance M-2250, my preexisting InstallBay 1000w wire kit, a 1.0 microfarad capacitor, and an InstallBay line-output-converter. As soon as i ran them the first time i was impresses beyond expectation. Bass response was strong, clean, loud, and un adulterated. Out of the three bass rigs ive run in my vehicle (sony-ma audio combo, massive-bazooka combo, an this Sound Ordnance) this blew me away with its sheer affordability and quality. Id recommend these to anyone who wants immaculate bass on a budget. All genres sound good from bass kicks to synth 808's through the Sound Ordnance B-24 setup. 5 stars.
Pros: Affordable, well built, nice on the eyes, excellent audio quality.
Cons: Although the warranty is fantastic, once the equipment goes out of warranty, if the subs were to die theyd have to be replaced with shallow subs. Not alot of room in the box.
These subs are well worth the money! I've had them for about 2 years now and haven't had a problem with them yet. Break them in properly like any sub and they'll last you a lifetime. They do lack the ability to play very low hZ bass but for 99% of music you'll never notice it. It produces bass that will pound your chest, but is tight enough to sound great with country and rock, it adds depth to any music that normal speakers alone lack. Paired them with the recommended 2250 amp and it's perfect.
Pros: sturdy, powerful, tight bass
Cons: slightly limited range
had these subs install if you want off the shelf cheap subs these proley for u but if u want somethin that will last go more expensive youll spend more in short run but save a whole lot more in the long
Pros: cheap subs
Cons: very cheap subs in construction in design very cheap subs went out in 6 months
These subs are amazing! I love them, they hit harder than my friends Rockford P1 Punches, they look amazing sound amazing so there fricking awesome, I would recommend these to anyone! My car rattles and that's only on 18 and when I turn It up it's so awesome, I have a Autotek 1000 Watt amplifier and it's awesome, I cant wait till they break in! They rattle everything in my car, I'm so happy I got these. I only paid 100 dollars for them sense I got them on the black Friday and promo code deal! I would buy these in a heart beat again!
These are amazing! I had them installed for few hours now but they STILL hit hard !!! These produce some loud, chess pumping, car ratteling, head turning bass. Perfect for rap and hip hop. The best part is when my friends want to see what they are. They look great. Not only do they look sexy but you don't lose out on quality.! I got them hooked up with the matching S/O M-2250 amp and it hits hard! The box is big, but not heavy. Also its built sturdy.
Pros: These produce some loud, chess pumping, car ratteling, head turning bass.
Cons: None so far.
Frecking dope, I turn them down to about +2 or -8 haha they it still hits hard!!!! I love them so much
Pros: Looks cool, adjust them to exactily what you want!
Cons: Take up a lots of room, and the cabling is huge!
Fantastic subs. they sound amazing!! Fantastic for dubstep and rap music. When the bass drops you feel it in your chest, the hair on your neck stands up. Oh and thats with them half way turned up. Perfect for anyone. i love mine
Pros: Hard hitting bass
I was totally impressed with the deep base given by these pair of sub. I have them mated to the S.O M2250 Amp. This is the best bang for your money.
Pros: looks, sound, construction, value
to respond to the other reviewers, so people dont get confused, first, you should get the matching S.O. amp (2250) it pumps these subs amazingly, if u use some cheap brutus or crap of course you will be sadly let down. these speakers DO hit lower notes, ive used a test disc and at 20hz they shake the mirror off and never stop. so if you get the right amp, and hook them up right, which is cake, they are great. for reference, i have them in the back of an suv, and they pound the whole truck. sound quality is great, both loose and tight depending on music you play. rage pounds tight, and the seldom "pop" i play hits long loose bass. best of both worlds.
Pros: awsome deal, great sound, price is great (i paid 159) and look sharp.
Cons: none for me, and ive had them for a year now, going strong, never miss a beat.
I was slightly disappointed when I saw that my new b-24 sub woofers had a crack in the left speaker Bandpass glass cover. I immediately called Crutchfield and was assured new sub woofers would be shipped immediately. I was even e-mailed a return shipping label, costing me nothing to return the broken subs. As sound quality goes, they bass is really loud and shakes my car pretty well when the right song is on. I believe the speakers lack in lower frequency reproduction such as in the song "On my Level" my Wiz Khalifa. Half of the bass notes are missing or very quiet because they are too low for the speakers. Other than the problems with deep bass, I have no complaints about these sub woofers and I am overall satisfied. Definitely worth the money. I have my subs hooked up to the m-2250 amplifier in the trunk of my 2005 Honda Civic Sedan.
Pros: Very Loud
Cons: Cannot handle very low bass frequencies.
Great sound, sturdy build - these speakers are heavy and big! Limited frequency response is a downer, but one i can live with.
Pros: Great boom, rock solid, look cool!
Cons: Heavy and Big, low frequency response range.
Seriously, These are amazing! I've had them for about a week and they haven't even broke them in yet but they STILL hit hard though!!! The best part about it is when my friends find out I have serious loud, chess pumping, car ratteling bass. I get to show them my trunk and its really cool looking subs that are blowing that sick bass! Not some ordinary looking subs like kenwood or pioneer. I love them. I got them hooked up with an M-2250 amp and it pushes hard!
Pros: Loud deep Bass. (hip-hop/rap) awesome apperance(attraction) fit well in trunk 3-year warrenty. Blows away my competition.
Cons: Not any yet
Well worth the money! The bass is off the scale with the Sound Ordnance M-2250, 2-channel car amplifier - 175 watts RMS x 2. If you want to turn heads and get dirty looks from old people then this is the sub package for you! I just love it and my kids are jealous, hehe.
Pros: High quality sound
After reading all the positive reviews I though I would buy this and I was saddly disappointed. If you've never had subwoofers in your car in the past or your not expecting really bass you can feel and you dont have $ this is the product for you. Basically you get what you pay for, this bass combo does a poor job of providing that hard hitting base that you can feel and that shakes your rear view mirror. I am running a Hifonics 1700 Brutus amp and pushing 600 rms to this box. When my gain is set past halfway up my amp goes into protect to stop me from blowing the speaker. So the rating of 500 rms is off quite a bit. Remeber that our amplifiers are only running at 60 - 70% in a best case scenario. After being disappointed I went out and bought some Orion XTRPro 12's which I wanted to put into this box and I was saddly disappointed again, the mounting dept in this box is very shallow and can not accommodate real subwoofers. Also when pulling out the subwoofers I found that cheap 16/18 gauge wire was used from the connecting terminal to the speakers. Also they are using two 8 ohm speakers so good luck trying to reuse the subs in another configuration.
Pros: Looks great, sounds ok if you don't have the $ for real subwoofers
Cons: Doesn't hit, and you don't feel the bass you only hear it. The speaker mounting dept in this box will not accommodate other subwoofers.
I bought this product in early January, been busy so just got it set up with the efx 8gauge wiring kit and 12 gauge speaker wire and these subs are so sick. The only problem i had was getting them to play. My car battery was pretty much dead and i think that led the subs to not get enough power to play. But now they are great. This was my first install and i think they are great started subs. someone i know has exo's but these b-24s hold enough power where i get the mirrors to shake. great product and excellent customer support!!! thanks crutchfield
Pros: loud, heavy, shakes mirror
Put these in the back of my explorer hooked up to a cheapo 400 rms amp. They deliver massive sound compared to my sealed tens I replaced. They look awesome and the box is stout. Response to some of the faster beats can be slow but that might just be the nature of these bigger subs. Overall a great product and glad I made the purchase.
Pros: Big boomy sound
Cons: Size might be an issue
I was blown away by how hard these hit for their price. Put these in my 09 Jetta with the matching amp and they pound. Have yet to turn gain past half as they are still new but they sound good right now.
Pros: Look, Sound, Bass, Price
Luckly got this on sale..This is super awesome sub and want more 3yrs warranty. I called this excalibur award.
Great look, great sound, best price
Amazing quality and very well built!
I bought this sub box for my son. He is the envy of all his friends at school. He gets more sound out of this system than his friends who spent $1.000 on their system. the sound is amazing.
Pros: solid design, great sound, looks great,
Cons: none that I can tell
I have friends with systems that cost several thousand dollars. I've heard competition vehicles. I've been in the Rockford Fosgate Demo van. These subs, come very close to beating my friends' systems, and I haven't even broken them in or turned them up all the way!! I can't wait to hear what they sound like in a week or two!! They hooked em up at the garage I use, and I could hear them testing it out in the separate shop!! These things sound amazing, and I got them on sale for $150!! These are an amazing value. You have to spend a LOT more money to get anything better, and these subs are WAY MORE than most people need. I cannot believe the value. Build quality is superb, the enclosure feels extremely solid. The only minor detail on sound quality is that it only goes down to like 42hz, so songs like "put on" by jeezy, where the base gets lower and lower, it will get a little bit quieter on the next to last lowering, and basically that last and lowest bass hit theres no bass coming outta the speaker. On the bright side, unless you have really good headphones, you'd never know that bass was ever there or supposed to be there. This is a minor drawback on these awesome subs!! Dance music plays well, rap hits very hard, and I haven't tried rock or anything yet. For those wondering I'm in a Buick Park Avenue with a midrange Kenwood head unit, Kenwood 6x9s on the rear deck and Kenwood 5.5s in the front doors amped by a cerwin vega 2 channel. I used the M2250 amp for the subs.
Pros: Great, loud bass. Excellent build quality and price.
Cons: Minor flaw with the 42ish hz limit... but again, if I didn't have a $300 pair of sony extra bass headphones that go down to 4hz, I wouldn't even know those notes were in the song.
I bought this product for the holiday season, being that is was at an discount price. as well the amp m2250. Was quite surprise when how hard the speakers hit. Just have to do some tweaking on the amp to get it just right.
Pros: Price: Great Size: Kool Sound: Great Design: Great
Cons: None at this time.
i bought these to replace my jl audio 13w1v2-4 subs. i am still breaking the b-24's in and i am amazed by the sound improvement. these play almost all types of music perfect, like rap, rock, dubstep, heavy metal. These really move some air, although i am only using about less than 1/3 of the volume because they are in the break-in period. The Bass is loud, clear, deep all at the same time. At lower volume levels, the bass is crip and clear, and not overpowering. I like how the bass notes are tight when they need to be, and i haven't heard any bass roll-off yet. The bass on my stock headunit is set at +1, and im not even using the bass boost on the amp, and my rearview mirror shakes violently. These really are the definition of "bang for your buck".
Pros: -music clarity, small size
i have been looking for something that provides a lot of bass, that doesn't break the bank, and with everything I've tried, I've found that you pretty much get what you pay for, but this is the exception. I think by far, it has the best sound of any sub box I have purchased to date. It is so powerful that I have the amp dialed way down, and run the reciever's sub control on -4, and it still blows me out of the jeep. I am definately a fan.
I bought these last week, and they were delivered today. I installed them myself a few hours ago. I am so impressed with these subs, this box, and the m2250 amp i bought with it. i was looking at much more expensive subs and after reading the reviews i thought it might be worth a try, and oh how it was worth it. they punch so hard. i can keep the subwoofer level at zero on my kenwood excelon, and have the level turned on only 1/16 of a turn on the amp and it is soooooooooooooooo loud. i think my crappy jeep is going to fall apart if i turn up the levels any higher.
awsome!!! These subs rock hard. With the matching amp, and proper tuning, these subs will really pound ur whole car. after the break in peiod of a couple weeks, they loosen up and flow. they can hit hard and tight for rock, or loose and loud for R&B. At thier regular price these are a solid deal, and on sale its a GREAT deal. The warranty is nice. but they are flawless and doubt u will ever need it. Do not worry, you will love these.
When I first got the B-24 and hook it up to my Kenwood KAC-7204 bridged to 500 watts. I wasn't impressed but I had the gain turned down and wasn't pushing it hard I wanted to give a week to settle in. So I wasn't worried and knew I needed to wait to see the full boom. So gave it time before coming to write a review. Well after waiting a week I set the gain and started cranking it up. Still was very impressed. Played it for another week and it started getting more and more impressed. After few weeks I can now say wow it booms pretty good. If you get it and your not getting a lot try giving it some time before giving up.
I been looking on this site for a week doing research and reading reviews cause this was my first sub. I have a Sony DSX-S200X media player and two Alpine 6x9s 3ways in the front and rear now I wanted a little thump to bring it all together. After first looking at all the name brands my friends have I happen to finally read about Sound Ordnance subs and amps. Everyone was so pleased with the brand so I decided to go with the B-24 and the M1500 amps instead of the 2500 cause I wanted the subsonic filter and the remote it came with would be a good addition. What everyone said about them is The Truth!!!They was serious when they made those and thats all I gotta say about that.
I HAVE TO BE HONEST WITH YOU GUYS READING THIS........I BOUGHT THIS BASED STRICTLY ON WHAT EVERYBODY ELSE HAS BEEN SAYING ABOUT IT.........I COULD NOT BE ANY HAPPIER WITH IT..........I GAVE IT FIVE STARS BECAUSE SIX IS NOT AN OPTION !!!!!!!!!! YOU "MUST" GET ONE OF THESE FOR YOURSELF !!!!!!!!!!!
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...
My satisfaction with crutchfield began early. CJ told me exactly what i would need to get rediculous bass. At first i was skeptical of SO because of it not being as well known as other brands, but i decided to buy them due to them being relatively inexpensive. I bought them and recieved them three days after i ordered them (i also purchased the M2250 amp. Let me tell you, these things will POUND! they outdo any similar systems ive ever heard. They blow away any 10s and most similar 12" setups. the bass is clear and tight for rock and REDICULOUS for rap. They look amazing, and keep up and BEAT much more well-known brands like Fosgate, and JL. Buy them! Amazing for a first system for the cost, or rip out anything you may have. You wont be dissapointed!!!
Crutchfield's customer service is outstanding first of all. I ordered this sub system and it was delivered three days later. They sent me everything I needed to get these subs hooked up. I already had speaker wire so i didn't have to order that. I bought the matching sound ordinace m2250 amp to power them. I was 100% pleased with this product. They sound excellent in my 2001 chevy S10 extended cab. I play anything from George Straight to Lil Wayne and it all sounds great. Hip hop music with low end bass will rattle windows on nearby buildings. Some people say the system is not good for rock and metal. I thought the bass was nice and tight for rock and it was good and drony for rap. Like i said it sounds good with any music. The box is well built, and of good quality. If I wish I could give it a six star rating. I have never had subs in my vehichle and I was nervous about buying these. However they will rival any kicker, alpine,etc. They are a great buy and great quality unless you do competition subs this setup is all you need.
This box plays all types of music well, but you should know before buying that it does have certain songs that are overwhelmed by the bandpass, in other words, rock sounds good, but certain songs sound a little "drony" while others are tight and hard. it has to do with the recording of the music though more than the type of music, so i wont fault the box.Just be aware, some songs wont sound as great as others without some tuning. I dont listen to hip hop, but occasionaly it gets played in my vehicle, and it does sound great. with the matching 2250 amp, this box can put many others to shame. Construction is solid and of good quality. and obviously nice looking. For those interested, the backside is angled slightly forward.
Short reveiew: very good build quality, very good sound, handles all types of music well. Puts out signifigant bass. Detailed review: Box is well constructed, and solid. plexiglass windows are thick and well sealed. Can handle all music types, rock sounds good, others sound good too. can definatly handle the rated 500 watts. bass is heavy and will definatly wake the neighbors. dont plan on using ur rearview mirror much. performs flawlessly as advertised.
Great sounding box for all types of music. Looks and sounds great in the back of our Mazada3 Hatchback. With the right amp, this thing will give you all the bass your car can handle.
You won't be disappointed, I got this box witch got here the next day after i ordered it and tried to get a lanzar amp from another online dealer but after a week of waiting I cancelled my order with them and placed my order with crutchfield for the 5220 sound ordnance Amp witch got here the next day after I ordered it, I wont make that mastake again. So i put the system in my Chevrolet suburban and it kicks harder then any of the other systems I've put in there. This box with the matching amp is definitely what you need if your into heavy bass and crutchfield has the service and prices you need. Only problem is there is no remote for the sound ordnance amps.
These are sick! big loud and make a scene! pair them with the M-2250 amplifier (also Sound Ordinance) perfect fit! I love these speakers people think i paid hundreds and hundreds of dollars for my subs haha little do they know it's only 179.99!
I gotta say, these are pretty dang awesome. They barely fit in my trunk and I went to pretty great lengths to secure them. Because I would be heartbroken if they were ever stolen. They slam hard, and I don't have a capacitor so my lights dim because they pull a fair bit of power from my itsy bitsy Honda Battery. something you must must must be aware of though, Is that this is a Bandpass box, and they excel in hip hop and rap. This box gives me pulses that far surpass other boxes I have heard. That said, if you're looking for a sub that plays the metal, metal core, punk, death metal, or other types of hard rock , or any music that demands(or prefers) tighter bass; you may find this to be a bit..overbearing, hence the 3/5. The frequency range is a tad limited, 42-165hz and I found that while, You may feel the base hitting you in the chest, what you hear in your ear does not reach quite high enough compared to ported boxes I have heard, The same goes for the lows. Comparing one box type to another is another argument entirely, but If you are on a fairly tight budget this is an excellent option. You can show off with no problem, I woke the neighbors across the street at about 60%. But like I said, Metal heads be aware, you won't hear that tight base drum with this sub.
i used to have two 10 inch pioneers in a sealed box, one of them blew so i was going to buy two new ones for replacement. this box cost less than that so i decided to try them. WOW! what a difference. i just installed them yesterday so they are still in the break in period. i have everything turned all the way down ( one more notch and they would be off) and they are still louder than the pioneers ! powered by an 800 watt pioneer amp cant wait to turn them up. they fit perfect in my hhr although my car squatted a bit with 72 lbs of speakers in the back. the box is ROCK solid and beautiful. i am very impressed. thanks crutchfield.
I'm glad I bought these. I've had them for about a year now and they're rock solid and sound awesome. Spending more money doesn't always guarantee your getting something better. These things have not given me any problems at all. I listened to mainly death metal and these things really bring out those blast beats. They make everything sound kickin'! If you're trying to decide on whether to get these or something more expensive DON'T! Buy these and you'll be glad you did!
I got this for my daughter for Christmas, it arrived on time,it has a long 3yr warranty, it is priced right. It was easy to hook up myself, it sounds great, my daughter loves it and has no complaints. Thanks Crutchfield for your product and expert advice.
First off I looked at a bunch of different stuff before deciding to get this. I was not sure what company to go with, but after reading some reviews I decided to buy Sound Ordnance subs. For the price I decided to go with 2-12's just in case I would regret it later. I cannot stress this enough these things are the bomb. They hit hard with the M- 2250 Sound Ordnance amplifier. They also sound great low as well. I am addicted to bass! By the way Crutchfield has the best customer service I have ever experienced with a mailorder company. Don't waste you time shopping around; buy these. You won't regret it.
After a sadly disappointing round of trying Bazooka subs, Crutchfield recommended this sub for my Son's 05 Grand Am. It just barely fit through the trunk opening and installed easily. I was impressed by the crisp clean sound this sub had from the moment it came to life. Outstanding quality, craftsmanship and sound. I would Highly recommend this for purchase. I used a Sound Ordinance M-2250 and to power it and this car rocks better than a lot of systems that cost loads more. Excellent purchase from Crutchfield!
First this box makes for a deep pure bass tone that will complete any genera of music. Tight slapping bass to low driving pulses this setup will get it done. I have the Sound Ordnance 2250 amp feeding the box power and a Kenwood Excelon KDC-X494 shooting the signal. I enjoy music from a sound quality stand point opposed to a booming six blocks away stand point, not saying that they won't do this as others have mentioned just pointing out they can be tuned to sound like speakers twice as pricey and power hungry. One thing to remember they are 42-165 Hz . Overall I give them a 5 for pure tone on a wide range of music.
I have the B-24 being powered by the S.O. M-2250, bridged, 500w rms @ 4ohm. WOWEE WOW WOW! The boom is incredible! My Chevy Tahoe provides an excellent cavern for the bass to bounce around it. I have never owned a system this loud before. Roll your windows down to let it breath and experience even more volume and vibrations. My friend says it is like getting a back massage, and my wife can even handle being near the vehicle, let alone sitting inside of it. There is good response across most frequency levels. It hits the ultra lows well, and has good response up as high as you let your crossover go (within reason of course) I am very impressed with the value that Sound Ordnance provides. The 3-year warranty sealed the deal for me. At first I was looking at buying an amp and subs that cost over twice as much as this set up. I am glad I saved the money, so now I can upgrade the head unit. Anyone looking for a setup in this price range will be very pleased. Money well spent. (And saved)
I bought this to replace a single 12" i had. You cannot beat this price...after hearing it i would pay $300. My friends have Kicker, Rockford Fosgate, Alpine, and all the other name brands you love and trust. I easily beat their system. If you want some punch that will get you noticed i would go with these.
I have a car that already has a nice system. Two rockford fosgate amps, rockford fosgate capacitor, four 6 1/2 alpine speakers, 1in alpine tweeters and it had an acceptable alpine head unit and 12in sub. I decided i wanted a little bit more punch, so i replaced the amp with a sound ordinance m2250 amp and replaced my sub with these bad boys. I was expecting to double the sound....well it easily bypassed doubling the sound. These things hit hard, i have a hatch with a hatch cover from the back seat to the back of the car. with it down its like an enclosure within an enclosure. you can sit there and just watch the cover move up and down, every window shakes and depending on what the weather is like, i have noticed it hits wayyyy harder. I have been following friends who have beads and what not hanging from their mirror and they will call me and tell me that when the sub hits it moves their beads. These are well worth the money and time. If you own a smaller car like mine, definitely make sure you measure. these are i think 30 inches arcoss? all together, not to sure, but i had to put mine in at an angle due to my hatch being a funny shape but sound ordinance just screams crutchfield.
WOW, these subs hit hard. I have them in the back of a blazer with the cargo cover across the subs, it looks like a fan is blowing the cover. The air movement is amazing. These subs hit so hard that it is really hard to put in words. I was very impressed when the box arrived and saw the Sound Ordnance Logo on the enclosure, it appears to be stiched in the carpet. WOW is an understatement. you will not regret this purchase. My Crutchfield advisor (Doc) was so helpful and very knowledgable (Thanks Doc)
The subs are great and for the price you can not beat, They hit very welll and with a 3 year warranty you can not beat it. As far as the subs go they sound and look great. Love them and very happy with them.
Let's see, I've went through the Infinity basslink, Polk Audio DB1212, Rockford Fosgate R1l, and now these. And I can proudly say I found the one that'll punch you in the chest. These thing's hit like crazy and now my car is vibrating like crazy too! I made a silly mistake and played these when my garage was down, and my car was in the garage with my trunk open and it sounded like my garage door was going to fall down. For the price, I am just flat out amazed. I'm using the SO2250 amp bridged at 500W and this thing hits HARD! I just installed it too - So i have the gain at about 1/4 of the way and it feels like I'm being punched, I can't imagine when I go and tune it more tomorrow how it'll sound. For the price and warranty, you can't go wrong. The products are beautiful in person, and give you that bass you want! Next thing to buy - Dynomat xD

As long as the cut out diameter is the same, it should be fine. Although some speakers are not recommended for band pass enclosures, I have had many band pass boxes over the years and have had no issues. [ Thaddeus Holdren Mar 28, 2016 ]
yes they will fit in box [ james Mar 28, 2016 ]
You can fit it inside of the box but maybe the sound won't be the best, because the specifications of both subwoofers are different [ SPC CARTAGENA Mar 28, 2016 ]
Yeah I purchased the m-1500 and the b-24's and they run perfect together it's been about 3 or 4 years and I push them hard and they sound great still to this day! It's hard to push the b-24's and get distortion from them. I would recommend! [ AARON Dec 10, 2015 ]
Any amplifier is fine. The B-24 max is 500w RMS @ 4ohms. The M-1500 amplifier is 300w RMS @ 4 ohms. I'm currently running it at 300w RMS @ 4 ohms with an Alpine M500 amplifier. [ ALEX Dec 03, 2015 ]
Yes it make the b-24 work and sound great . I have them in my 1984 Lincoln, Alpine head with XM radio a great match!! [ JERROME Dec 03, 2015 ]
These subs do not need a bunch of power. I bought this box and a Sound Ordnance 4 channel amp and bridged it. Ran the gain at a quarter turn and they thumped. You will not hear distortion as easily with a band pass box, like you do in a conventional box. Everyone believes you have to run a lot of power to get great bass these days, you do not. [ Thaddeus Holdren Mar 28, 2016 ]
I didn't have an amp for my speakers but I ran the subs just fine with a 600W amp by itself [ COLE Oct 13, 2015 ]

This bass package is rated for 500 Watts RMS so it's not the subs you would have to worry about blowing, it's burning up that amplifier. I would not recommend installing Subwoofers into a vehicle without a bass knob (remote bass control usually near dashboard) or an after market deck in which you can control and change subwoofer settings. However if neither of those two applications are viable, here's how to tune your subs. Turn your stock audio to as loud as you would ever listen to it. That way you can adjust your subs to match these levels. Now to access your equalizing knobs. The low pass filter usually labeled LPS should be ALL THE WAY DOWN. The gain should be all the way down unless there is fewer than 500 Watts being used. If you're already at your 500 mark, leave it alone. And the bass boost knob can be used for that bump you want to have in your vehicle. This is tricky because you want to get it is close to peaking your subs as healthily possible. Remember you already turned your audio to as loud as you would ever listen to it so keep that in mind during use, so as not to blow your subs. Hope this helps! [ BRIAN Z Dec 22, 2014 ]
You adjust the sound to your preference. There is no specific setting that they should be at, all you need to do is listen and turn until you find what you like. [ TANNER Dec 21, 2014 ]
Its all about feel and preference. You will just have to play with it until you find what works for you. [ JASON Dec 21, 2014 ]
It seems that these subs can handle way more than noted...I would turn the gain up and let it fly....im running them off of a arc audio 700 watt amp at 4ohms and they seem like they can take way more... [ ANTONIO Dec 21, 2014 ]
The best way to learn is go to YouTube and search "tuning subwoofer amplifier" you should get some helpful videos. [ ALEX Dec 21, 2014 ]

My amp is 4 channel and works fine with the single terminal [ THOMAS Mar 24, 2014 ]
Greetings! The box only has (1) terminal for both subs. The box is wired for 4 ohms. I'm using a Arc audio 300x2 briged@4 ohms and it sounds amazing.... Can't beat this set up for the money. [ ANTONIO Mar 24, 2014 ]
This is a Band-Pass enclosure in which both subs are connected to a single + - terminal. The Amplifier i've equipped mine with is the Sound Ordnance M2250 and its a 4 channel bridged to 500 watts RMS. I couldnt be more satisfied with my equipment and by the way it looks and the price is amazing. These subs sound phenomenal in my BMW 3 series. [ BRIAN Z Mar 24, 2014 ]
