About the Sound Ordnance™ B-24
Meet Dominic DeVito
I'm energized by music and reliable directions, so car GPS and audio are my bailiwicks.
I've been a writer here at Crutchfield since 2006. My specialties have been car audio, GPS navigation, and radar detectors, which I've covered basically since day one. In 2008 I started shaping local print advertising for our retail stores in central Virginia. This introduced me to even more ways that Crutchfield connects with our customers and community.
I'm a huge fan of live music, and have been since my high school days. Once I was in college, I started following my favorite bands around the country, and still do today.
Those travels gave me a deep appreciation for reliable navigation. I remember the days of paper maps and printing directions from websites all too well. I've been tracking the evolution of dedicated portable and in-dash GPS navigation since I started here. I still see these devices as highly beneficial even as many people rely on their smartphones for guidance.
In the meantime, I've worked at several record stores and served as a DJ for a community radio station for over 20 years, allowing me to form bonds with other music lovers and fans of great sound. I used to write record and concert reviews for a handful of blogs and local publications, and you can find more of my writing in the book Schools That Rock: The Rolling Stone College Guide.

More from Dominic DeVito
Sound Ordnance designed the B-24 dual bandpass subwoofer to be the bass fortress in your vehicle's sound system. The sturdy enclosure houses a pair of 12" polypropylene woofers in individual airtight sealed chambers, plus a third chamber that features a generous slot port for massive air movement. The enclosure's bandpass design increases speaker efficiency dramatically for impressive bass firepower. Best of all, you can watch the woofers swing into action behind the clear acrylic front windows.
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.
