The B-8PT's built-in amplifier sends 120 watts RMS to the 8" subwoofer, adding high-impact low notes that'll fortify your music. The Sound Ordnance logo means you'll get more than tremendous value and reliable performance — the B-8PT is reinforced with a 3-year warranty so you can add it to your system with confidence.

Great subwoofer in a nicely sized package.

Video: Sound Ordnance Subwoofers
by Zak Billmeier, Jo Greene

Car audio systems need a subwoofer to fill out the bass in your music and give it a full-bodied sound. Watch this short Crutchfield video to learn about the subwoofer

Added much-needed bass to my daily commute!

Written by Robert Ferency-Viars, Staff Writer - Creative, on 12/21/2011 12:41:00 PM
I recently added the Sound Ordnance B-8PT powered sub to the back of my car, a Nissan Versa, and I'm very happy with it. It's just the right amount of bass for me, and I immediately started hearing notes that I'd never heard in my car before. If I turn up the sub, it booms really well - it's not shy! But I like my bass tighter and more focused, so I have the gain set about midway to keep it under control. It's great! The remote control knob lets me turn it down when my sons are in the car, so they don't have to put up with the pounding bass.
