You can control your Sound Ordnance B-8PT powered subwoofer from the front seat with this remote control knob kit. This wired remote adjusts your amp's level from its set maximum volume all the way down to virtually "off." Since it adjusts the amp's level and not its bass boost, you'll hear consistent bass tone as you lower and raise the volume.

Does everything you need it to do!
This knob is perfect for an amp knob, the only qualm would be the design of the product. Remember it takes RJ-14 types of plugs.
Pros: Works well Affordable RJ-14 Plugs
Worked great and great service.
I own a Sound Ordnance Powered subwoofer, and bought it 2nd hand, so didnt get a Remote dial with it. I bought this, as ita same product line, and soeced for this sub woofer. Again, ny advisor Chance, cane thru with flying colors with his recommendations. Thanks again
Pros: Small, versitle mounting design
Easy set up.
Pros: Easy installation.
Cons: Does not seem to work with my jx-500 jl audio amp. :/
Nicely made product but didn't do the trick for me. Apparently all Remote cable (RJ-14 plugs aren't the same. I tried using this on my JBL BassPro SL Subwoofer and it attenuated sound rather than increasing it.
Pros: Nicely crafted
Cons: Doesn't work with products other than Sound OrdnanceCrutchfield response on November 29, 2016 Whenever you are not completely satisfied with anything you purchase from Crutchfield, please contact our Customer Support team.

Works great!Got a S/O amp from a friend that he wasn't using,but missing the control knob.
Pros: Allows you to adjust for different bass levels in tracks.
Cons: None I can think of.
Pros: Easy install
Cons: No mounting points
Great bass knob, has clicks for adjustment
Neededa replacement for my sub, happy I could buy this part.
Pros: Direct replacement
exactly as advertised. worked perfectly
Nice quality little to big onLybie works with there amps
It didn't work on my old Rockford Fostgate amp. I plugged it in an the bass was always full volume. Ended up reselling it.
Pros: Knob feels nice and smooth with clicks. Compact in size to hide anywhere.
Cons: Doesn't work on older amp models.
I agree whole heartedly with the other review. It is indeed a knob, that turns the subwoofer gain up and down. It does this job quite well, almost like it was the only function it had to perform. The cable is sufficiently long (RJ11 phone line) that it can be run from trunk to drivers seat if required.
Pros: It does it's job well
Cons: To nitpick, I imagine it could be engineered to be smaller, but it's a good size. Smaller than a jeopardy buzzer, larger then a cricket.
This knob turns the subwoofer volume up AND down. It's truly amazing.
Pros: Turns it up. Turns it down.
Cons: Doesn't light up with LEDs or some other totally awesome but incredibly unnecesary thing.
Wired Remote Control: The B8PT Knob Kit puts control of your subwoofer output within easy reach. The remote can be mounted using the attached double sided tape or a self-tapping screw (not included). The dimensions are:
RJ-14 Connector: The remote includes a 14' RJ-14 cable which connects between the wired-remote knob and your compatible Sound Ordnance powered subwoofer.

Picked this to replace my old knob because this one has ticks to adjust more accurately. [ Nick Nov 28, 2016 ]
This was the cheapest amp remote available so i picked it. I am not sure if it will control my JL marine amplifier or not, but it was worth a shot. [ Isaac Sep 20, 2016 ]
I have always been a big fan of shopping, on line and I've heard a lot about this web site. [ Damion Jul 17, 2016 ]
Lost my car in a flood. Managed to get the subs and box out unscathed, but forgot the bass knob. Now I'm ready to get my new car's system up and running. [ Britton Jul 13, 2016 ]
For my husband [ Krystal Jun 10, 2016 ]
Needed a universal 6 pin bass knob [ Shann May 28, 2016 ]
To try it out, I was interested to see how well it controls my amp volume [ Chris May 17, 2016 ]
I recently bought a car that still has a factory radio in it and this remote knob will help me control my Sound Ordnance powered sub. [ DONALD Apr 15, 2016 ]
I needed a replacement. I have this in my Jeep Wrangler center console, I wheel it pretty hard sometimes and the last knob just stopped working. [ David Mar 01, 2016 ]
Left my old Sound Ordnance remote wiring in a car I sold (kept the remote). Tried a standard phone cable (RJ-11) but it didn't light up OR adjust volume. Crutchfield Tech Support recommended this knob...all I needed was the cable, but for $10 this'll do. (Plus, I couldn't find a decent RJ14 cable anywhere...talk about outdated technology.) [ R Feb 22, 2016 ]
I am using a stock stereo in my car and needed a way to control my Sound Ordinance amp [ ALEXANDER C Feb 14, 2016 ]
bought new truck left old one in old truck. [ MACDADDY1971 Jan 26, 2016 ]
The sub works great, needed to get a replacement cable. [ kenneth Jan 17, 2016 ]
There is double sided tape on the back of the remote. It is very good tape and I have my mounted by my knees in my truck. [ Jeff May 17, 2017 ]
Hi bruce. The end connection of this bass knob is the same as a phone jack. If the amp accepts a phone jack end piece, like most amps, you are in business. [ Jesse Apr 15, 2017 ]
It unplugs. That is how I was able to use my own cord of a proper length [ Robert Apr 15, 2017 ]
This a 6pin, not sure if it will work. [ Victor Dec 09, 2016 ]
S.O. Knob Kit has a 4 pin connection on both ends. [ JACOB Dec 06, 2016 ]
Didn't work for mine if you have and eq hook the lead to the remote on the amp [ David Nov 09, 2016 ]
As long as the connection on your fosgate amp is the phone jack connection, yes it will. I only know kicker to change their connectors so it ahould work just fine. [ Jesse Nov 08, 2016 ]
The Sound Ordnance B8PT Knob Kit is designed specifically for use with the Sound Ordnance B-8PTD powered subwoofer; and would not work properly with your Planet Audio amplifier.

I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: The 777B8PTKNB uses a slightly different size connector (RJ14) than the M-1350 amp (RJ25). I am not showing that we have a replacement knob for the 1350 available. Call in and speak with our tech support team and we can see if we can get one for you. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy Jan 20, 2015 ] Staff
This knob will not work with the M-2250. This is because the jack that is labeled remote on the M-2250 is not functional - so no remote will work with it. Sorry I don't have better news for you there. [ Jeff Oct 17, 2014 ] Staff
Can I connect this to my sound ordnance m-2250? [ jesse Aug 27, 2014 ]
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: The Sound Ordnance B-8P is not compatible with a bass control knob at all. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy Mar 22, 2014 ] Staff
