About the Sound Ordnance™ B-17

Sound Ordnance designed the B-17 bandpass subwoofer to be the bass fortress in your vehicle's sound system. Its 12" polypropylene woofer is mounted inside a sturdy enclosure, between an airtight sealed chamber and a second chamber that boasts a generous slot port for massive air movement. This bandpass design increases speaker efficiency, for impressive bass firepower from a relatively small box. Best of all, you can watch the woofer swing into action behind the clear acrylic front window.

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.

Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp for your subs I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences between the amp models and help you make the best choice for your system.

[ Danny  Sep 26, 2019 ]

The subwoofer comes already wired and mounted inside the box ready to rock. You will have to provide the wire from the amp to the sub box

Q
How many amps of current does this sub draw?
[ James  Aug 29, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
my amp is only 100 watts. its about 15 amps. but I have 8 gauge wire on it, with a 50 amp fuse. because the speaker is in closed the bass is louder so you dont need a big amp.

Q
What amp would best go with this Sound Ordnance sub?
[ allen  Jan 05, 2014 ]
2 answers
A
The best match for this subwoofer would be the Sound Ordnance M2100. It would actually be a PERFECT match. Not only is it the same brand but the power bridged into a 4 ohm load would be spot on.
