Sound Ordnance M2-8SVC
8" 4-ohm subwoofer
Our take on the Sound Ordnance M2-8SVC by Crutchfield's John Pollard
Add some boom to your ride
Win the battle for boom with subwoofers from Sound Ordnance. Throw one or two of these bad boys in your vehicle to give you bass you can feel. You'll love the difference these subs make, and adding them to your system won't destroy your budget.
Built like a tank
The M2-8SVC 8" subwoofer comes with a tough glass fiber cone that will keep its shape when the music's turned up, so your bass stays accurate. The butyl rubber surround helps keep the woofer's movement on track, and it'll stay pliable for years to come. The stamped steel basket provides a stable home for the whole assembly, so your bass plays the way it should. Also, Sound Ordnance backs up this sub with a 3-year warranty, giving you peace of mind while you're rocking hard.
To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 120 and 225 watts RMS at 4 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

Why did you buy this?
Good reviews, fit my application with no modification, good performance at a great price. [ Kevin W Jun 09, 2017 ]
Value ð??? for those of us who just need a little extra bass. [ Jonathan May 07, 2017 ]
Price was very reasonable. I just need to fill out the low side to balance the system and you can't beat the price. The reviews were also very good. [ James Apr 09, 2017 ]
already have one and it works great, I bought a dual 8" enclosure so i wanted the same sub [ William Mar 31, 2017 ]
Value [ Dan Mar 28, 2017 ]
You can't beat the price. Subwoofers don't have to be crystal clear, they just have to move air. [ ROSS Mar 08, 2017 ]
price and reviews. I am also limited on space for the box it will go in. I have a full size extended cab truck but ABSOLUTELY DO NOT want to use up all the space for just a speaker box. This will replace the VERY old and wore out 12 in. R.F. Since I have had great success with Rockford Fos. I was going to purchase another, but I think this speaker will be a great replacement and for an UNBEATABLE price !! Look forward to using it ! [ kenneth Mar 01, 2017 ]
Price point and quality [ MICHAEL B. Feb 28, 2017 ]

Great reviews and price. [ James Feb 08, 2017 ]

The Reviews and the price [ John May 30, 2016 ]
I choose this from the reviews I've read and plus I have 3 1/2 sound ordnance speaker's in the front and they sound great. So I'll give these a try,in which I'm sure I'll be happily suprised! [ andre May 24, 2016 ]

no grill needs to be purchased seperate [ MARTIN Dec 17, 2016 ]
No it does not [ John Dec 16, 2016 ]
no grill [ james Dec 16, 2016 ]
No it does not,its just the speaker and a rubber seal [ Edward Dec 16, 2016 ]
No [ james Aug 04, 2015 ]
THis was not an issue for me. I actually stripped the connections off to expose the wires, because it has a positive and negative. It sounds good in my 02 Tahoe [ DEMARLON Aug 04, 2015 ]
I had no issue when I replace the Sub in our 2002 Avalon XL, just make sure you get the wires connected properly to match the impedance or the other speakers. It will work either way but will sound better if all are in sync. You will be able to tell by listening, if it does not sound correct just reverse the wires. [ Roger Aug 03, 2015 ]
If you are saying your vehicle has two wires connected to the current subwoofer, then this unit will work fine. If your vehicle has 4 wires connected to the existing subwoofer then you have a Dual Voice Coil setup. Most aftermarket amplifiers will allow you to bridge the two outputs into one (two wires) for a SVC speaker. Some OEM radios will allow you to just connect one pair of speaker leads. If you have a DVC setup (4 wires) currently, you can find nice DVC subwoofers on the Crutchfield site. [ William Aug 03, 2015 ]
NO this will not be a issue [ Anthony Aug 03, 2015 ]
Mitch, I replaced the factory sub in a 1998 Ford Expedition. The factor amp was existing and I would assume the crossover was built into the amp. I would say yes you would. Good luck. [ TIMOTHY J Mar 19, 2014 ]
I didn't I just hooked it up to my stock stereo in my Chrysler 300 class c and it sounds great! [ DEAN Mar 18, 2014 ]
