Our take on the Sound Ordnance Bass Bunker by Crutchfield's Dominic DeVito
Sound Ordnance's rugged Bass Bunker enclosures come built to last and ready to help your sub deliver real low-frequency firepower. These unloaded boxes feature high-grade, medium-density fiberboard construction, with sealed inner braces that help combat resonance by reducing vibrations. Rounded outside corners and recessed panels allow them to fit into more vehicles, while tough black carpeting defends against incoming nicks and scratches. Bass Bunkers make a great solution when building your own box is not an option.
The BB12-150V ported enclosure holds one 12" subwoofer and offers an internal volume of 1.60 cubic feet. Its large vents feature rounded inner corners that keep port noise to a minimum for more accurate response. Just add the right sub, amp, and wiring, then mount the enclosure securely, and you're ready to hit the road with some real bass artillery in your arsenal.
Warning: This enclosure does not include mounting hardware. If you're buying a sub from us, please check "What's in the Box?" to see if screws are included. If not, you should have an assortment of heavy-duty wood screws on hand for the installation.
Bass Bunker exceeded my expectations for a ported box! Sound is so crisp and clear and it makes the sub hit ever so hard! Highly recommend!!!

I have a 2-12 box but only want 1-12 for space in my ford fusion 2-12 take up 70% of my space trunk space [ Lewis Feb 05, 2017 ]
Searched around the web, could not really find what I was looking for nor I had support from other sites, but yours Crutchfield had what I needed and had an advisor in Brooke helping me out with what I needed. [ Jose Jan 03, 2017 ]
I recently bought a new car and my trunk is smaller then my last car. So I needed a smaller box to fit in my trunk with out giving up any of my bass. And these boxes were mentioned and referred to me so I'm going to try them out. I also had the opportunity to place two of these boxes in my trunk to see how they fit and hold up. [ TREY Nov 16, 2016 ]
GOOD PRICE AND REVIEWS [ M Nov 13, 2016 ]
Because my old sub box was junk and sound ordinance makes high quality boxes at a great price [ Bruce Oct 28, 2016 ]
It is a good fit 4 my mercury cougar [ MICHAEL Oct 07, 2016 ]
had 1 before and thought it was an excellent box [ Ricky M. Aug 13, 2016 ]
I picked this because i was told it will make the bass sound deeper and louder [ Parker Aug 08, 2016 ]
Good reviews, and it has the correct volume for my sub. It's also one of very few vented/ported boxes that has a slanted back to fit against the back seat in the trunk. [ John Jul 19, 2016 ]
I needed a 12" sb cabnet [ CHRIS Jun 27, 2016 ]

I didnt. Got these boxes because they were the only premade ones i could find to fit under my sundeck in my boat. I have loved them. They do a great job with my subs. [ CHAD Nov 08, 2016 ]
Did not come with screws. I used 1 inch coarse thread screws [ PARAMVIR S Jun 26, 2016 ]
Screws were included. [ CHRISTOPHER Jun 26, 2016 ]
Though I'm not a service consultant for crutchfield I can almost guarantee they carry a custom fit box perfectly for your Chevy.. I bought the JL stealth box for my Tacoma Double Cab and have been more then happy with it. [ STEPHEN Jan 12, 2016 ]

In my honest opinion I don't think it will no matter how you set it up [ STEPHEN Jan 12, 2016 ]
I want to know what best subwoofer box is made for the alpine swr 12 [ Christopher Nov 03, 2015 ]

Yes it would...it's a very sturdy well built box... [ BRIAN May 18, 2015 ]
no box is to small [ IAN May 18, 2015 ]
yes, it'd sound good and last awhile. I have a power acoustic 12 mofo 2500 max getting pushed by 1200 watts and sounds pretty good. The air flow on it is pretty nice too, but I like ported boxes. [ ASHTON May 18, 2015 ]
I would say yes. Mine looked very well built. I installed a pioneer spl 3000 with a hifonics 2000 watt. Only pushing around 1000 rms but the box is holding up perfectly. Sounds great and i personally think it looks better than any other sub box I've seen. [ ROBERT May 18, 2015 ]
It should I have an alpine type r in it now 1000 rms going to the sub. Sounds great. [ ARBEN May 18, 2015 ]
I had the 3500w champion pro and it was perfect. [ JDers Jul 11, 2015 ]
I have no idea. I purchased the Polk Audio sub and it works perfectly. Sorry I can't help with your question. FYI - Crutchfield's return policy is very good if it doesn't work for you. [ Bob Feb 24, 2015 ]
I don't have a champion, but I recently just replaced my busted JL sub with a more powerful 12 inch Alpine sws-1243D and have had no complaints or issues with either sub in it. I've had the box for almost 4 years now as well. Hope that gives you some insight or at least a reference point. [ JASON T Feb 24, 2015 ]
I purchased this box and mounted an original pioneer spl 3000 in it and it rocks. the inside of the box is reinforced and is very solidly built in my opionion. I'd definitely recommend it over any other single sub box out there. [ ROBERT Feb 24, 2015 ]
