It's good

Crutchfield customer from Boston , MA on 6/3/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Installation was easy. The bass is perfect for an 8 inch sub. Perfect compliment to a stock stereo. I wish there was a remote switch option so I can adjust the bass while driving.

Pros: Small footprint. Easy to remove when you need the trunk space

Cons: None so far

Absolutely fabulous sub

2001 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

WOW!!!!! I bought this sub based on the reviews that other people had rated it and this baby did NOT disappoint. Super easy to install. Completely adjustable volume and frequency for this sub. Small footprint in the back of my truck What a excellent product! Those people that say that the 8 inch sub doesn't put out great bass probably didn't hook it up correctly. On a side note, I spent $800 for a Sony digital multimedia head unit, 4 Polk 5x7's, 2 Kenwood 6x9's, 2 Sound Ordnance bass bunkers, and a Sound Ordnance B -8P subwoofer and I have a sound system I'm extremely proud of! Thanks Crutchfield!

Pros: super deep tight accurate bass. Not muddy or unclear but solid and loud as you want. What a steal for that low a price sound ordnance hit a home run with this one

Cons: Not one single negative word

Great bang for the buck. This sub should be used by people who want their sound to be well rounded with no frequency overpowering the others. This is not for bass heads. It adds the missing lows that factory small speakers can't play.

Huge sound in a little box.

Alex from Round Rock, Tx on 5/6/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought my first B-8P in 2010. I was skeptical, but figured it was worth $100. It blew me away. Sold it with the Jeep in 2012. Years later-even though I can now afford the high end gear-I picked up another. I dropped it in the back of a 2000 Land Cruiser with a Pioneer AVC-5000NEX and factory speakers. You would have to sit in the truck and witness it to believe how incredible it sounds. We are talking about an 8. Not a solobaric 12 with 500 watts on it. Just an 8 with crisp line level signal going into it and proper EQ adjustment. The bad news? I upgraded to a Tundra and the box doesn't have a home in the back floorboard. I will try our another S/O piece and hopefully get the same awesome results.

Pros: Fantastic sound Easy install Durability (My kid used it as a step stool)

Cons: Nothing comes to mind

Budget Bass!

Anthony from Riverside, CA on 4/7/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I wanted bass but didnt have the space, I have a compact car and needed to retain trunk space for stroller, groceries,etc. This was the perfect option for me, love the enclosed stylish box because an exposed sub would have not well and been damaged sooner or later. You will not be rattling items around inside vehicle but it will add that much needed thump when coming from none. Have had it nearly 3 years and have been very happy with it ,it is built well and is very reliable. Great warranty and customer service as always. Would be cool to see other model sizes become available maybe a 10 or 12 inch with more power obviously

Pros: Affordable, good bass for what it is, easy to install, stylish, durable, dependable.

Cons: None

Subtle, but a good bargain.

Kile from NC on 4/5/2019

2007 Toyota RAV4

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

(2007 RAV4) I put this in the cargo area, where there are a couple cargo hooks that allow you to use a bungee to secure it. I bought a heavy-duty (13 AWG) power cord and powered it from the accessory outlet in the cargo area (15A max). I replaced the 20A fuse in the cable with a 10A for peace of mind. If you don't use the remote connection from the head unit, you need to jumper from the + terminal to the REM terminal on the sub. (Small gauge is fine.) The sub turns on with my ignition, just like the head unit. I ran a home sub cable (15') from the head through the trim to the back and then a y-adapter to the low level inputs. I put the low-pass at on the head at 100 Hz and on the sub at 90 Hz. I put the high-pass on the head at 80 Hz for the main speakers. I had to adjust the level on the sub to about 75%, and then adjust the sub level from the head unit (Sony XAV-AX-1000). This sub is pretty subtle. I'm thoroughly satisfied, but it won't win competitions. A steal for the money.

Pros: Low current draw, compact size, good bass for size

Cons: Needs a switch to defeat the REM input, LEDs are a waste of money

As you can see one in the box arrived today and one in back of my 2014 traverse LT. I got one for wife 2012 fusion and she loves the way mine hit. So it's safe to say we're part of the Sound Ordnance family with crutchfield family also. Now make some components speakers now guys.

Pros: Love it 110% 10**********

Cons: Don't have a third car for another 8" sound ordnance.

Crutchfield customer from Kearney, MO on 1/4/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

For the size and the price you really can't ask for anything more. The sub has good sound and decent range for only an 8" woofer. The LED is wired constant such is its only draw back, but with the separate power switch for LED it is easily over looked. I would buy another one of these if only I had another vehicle to install it in!

Pros: Good sound, Good price point, ease of connection and decent adjustability.

Cons: Not really a con, but the LED is constantly powered. If the switch is left on the LEDs will stay on no matter the ignition state. The separate power switch for the LED is handy and solves the problem.

I bought this box a few years back for my son to put in his trunk. He sold his car and this was sitting in my shed ever since. I decided to see if it would fit behind the rear seat of my 2dr. Wrangler JK. It fit perfectly and after installation it completely changed the sound. Finally some bass.

Pros: Price, sound

I needed a little bit of bass for my 2007 Civic Si audio overhaul and this little thing did not disappoint! I wanted something small, safe from destruction (objects moving around in the trunk) and inexpensive. This sub hit all three marks and is plenty loud for me. Keep in mind this is not going to win any sound competitions but it will fill your car with the low end sound and bumps you need. I totally recommend this unit for those on a budget.

Pros: Value, sound, ease of connectivity, and bump.

Cons: None

Great "boom" for the buck!

Jeff from Johnson City, NY on 11/12/2018

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Added one Sound Ordnance B-8P to my daughter's first car, a 2007 Suzuki SX4. The enclosure fits nicely in the trunk without taking up too much room and it sounds amazing for its size and cost. The bass is deep enough to add a nice kick to my music and it can produce a surprising amount of "shake" with her music. ;-) The installation was a breeze using the amplifier wiring kit suggested by Crutchfield. The most difficult part is running the wiring through the kick panels but that can be aided by a couple/three beers. :-) My daughter also helped with the install and she was amazed at what goes on under all the panels and carpeting inside a vehicle. Overall I give the B-8P five stars because the sound it produces, its small size, and its cost(in that order)!

Pros: Sound quality, small size, and cost.

Cons:

Easy easy. Yes, an easy way to add some low end bass to your system. This is by no means a bass that you're gonna feel through the driver seat, or show off to the crowd standing on the corner, but it does provide a decent sound to your music. Oh, and it will also reveal every rattle in the car. Grrrr..

Pros: Easy all in one design. Fairly quick install. Use RCA from head unit as you'll have more control.

Cons: None. Operates as advertised

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I have 2-12" with powerful amp in my another civic, adding this to my new covic ext 180w was a testing and it exceeded my expectations. What a bang for your buck. I have everything factory, tapped 2lines high level from rear deck factory speaker wire to sni35 LOC got remote from lighter positive. Works perfect. I tried all volume level. If you have car full of people all you need to go is up to volume level 18ish. Everybody will start to shout. Trust me you will notice some bass that you never heard through your factory speaker(great responsive frequency setting). I have level to half, freq to around 110 and it fows with the flow of my factory radio. I think this system produce the bass you would think a $300+ would produce. Someone said if you fit 12 pack corona you would fit this, made me think this was real small well its little bigger than a 12 pack but it makes me think it has 12" inside. Great bass perfect frequency response and i do notice a heavy difference ether a volume level 8 or 18. Great product

Pros: Small, great thump, great response to factory radio.

Cons: None so far

Reviewing S/O products is becoming tedious and boring. Thankfully it's because everything these guys put out is just crazy good!!!! Fit and finish is second to none!!! Straight cuts, straight lines, tight fittings and superior knobs, buttons and hook ups. Nothing about this product line ever feels or sounds cheap. Yet you would expect it when you see the price for this self powered, inverted sealed enclosed amp and sub that even has a nice little lighting effect. I have purchased other boxes that did not include the amp and they cost double and didn't even sound as good as this one! Amazing thump from a single small sized sub. Again I wasn't surprised, because everything I buy from S/O is just that good!

Pros: Everything

Cons: That anyone can buy it at this price point. I'm selfish and want it all to myself

Cannot beat the sound and quality for the money. This is the third time I've installed this sub for friends over the years. Fits perfectly behind front seat in older model Ford Ranger Super Cabs and fills the cab with hard hitting, tight bass. Also works extremely well in hatchbacks and the trunk of small sedans. I would not hesitate to buy again. It's also backed with a 3 year warranty but doubt that you will ever need it.

Amazing bass from such small box. Installed this on wife's 2016 Scion FRS. Fits perfectly and still leaves plenty of room on the vehicles trunk. Did not change the Head Unit, only added this sub. Tapped into OEM AMP to get signal for the subwoofer. Very easy to do, and it add Superb bass to the OEM Speakers that are in the car. Simple upgraded with 100% excellent results. I would recommend this sub to anyone, specially if you want a small box that delivers plenty of bass. If you can fit a case of Coronas in the trunk or your car, you can fit this sub as well Purchased and installed on 05/2018

Pros: Easy to Install Sounds Amazing Nice LED Lights

Cons: None

Great sound but must be positioned correctly

John from Mason, OH on 1/26/2018

2017 Ford Fusion

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I am happy with how it sounds, but you have to put it in the most optimal place. I have a 2017 Ford Fusion. Since I installed it in the trunk I found that I had to move it around until I could hear it properly. Right behind the backseat did not sound good at all unless I folded down the backseat. But once I moved it just a few inches away from the end of the trunk it sounds awesome even with the seats up. Make sure you give yourself enough wire to move in around once you install it. It provides more than enough base for what I wanted. Anything more really would be overkill. I think folks that get much bigger stuff probably don't have it placed properly.

Pros: Value, solid enclosure, powerful.

Cons: Have to position correctly for your vehicle, but this is true with any sub

Great little sub for the size and price. I have it installed in a Ford Econoline underneath the first bench seat. This is mostly a work vehicle for me used to transport my gear to a from gigs as I am a mobile DJ. It does the job well of filling out the lower register of music. I have a Sony head unit and Polk speakers installed in the doors, so this fits in nicely. Music types tested out so far have been electronic, hard rock, metal, and classical. seems to fare better with the electronic and metal stuff. It's a well built sturdy little unit

Pros: small size, lots of "oomph" for an 8" sub

Cons: have to turn gain all the way up. can be a tad muddy musically

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Based on all the amazing reviews, I thought this would be a great sub. Soooo disappointed. I have a 2015 Scion Xb. I used a Sosche line output converter to take speaker level to RCA. I put the sub in the back and ran 4 gauge power and ground. I have the gain on the LOC all the way up, the remote for the LOC all the way up and the volume on the sub all the way up. Even with all that, I have to turn the head unit up really high to get anything out of this sub. At low volumes, it adds basically nothing. I ordered the JBL 12" powered sub that was on sale for cyber monday. I'll try that. This little sub looks nice, is small and compact, but I don't care about the looks - I want the bass. 2 out of 5 stars.

Pros: compact, looks nice, easy to connect

Cons: sound, volume, sound, sound, sound.

There's gotta be a 12" woofer in that box somewhere! Amazing bass that I did not expect from an 8". Incredible value and quality product.

Pros: Compact design retains trunk space while giving more than adequate punch.

This was a birthday gift for my teenage son and he absolutely loves it. He says the sound quality is as good or better than his friends with speaker/amp setups that were considerably more expensive. The install is very straight forward not to mention easier than a speaker/amp combo. In short it's inexpensive and it sounds great, what else can you ask for.

Pros: Quality, Sound , Price

Cons: Nothing yet

This powered sub is so legit. Put it in my 97 corolla which is sorta funny but that thing bumps now. Hits low bass and highs. Cheap install was quick and simple. HIGHLY recommend this product to anyone looking for a cheap sub with a easy install.

Pros: powered strong for how small it is and for the amp

Cons: small amp isnt high wattage

Compact size but big sound

Kyle from Lincoln, NE on 10/2/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This sub was a great choice for my '73 Beetle. There is not much room for speakers in the car, and this powered sub is a good size, with great performance. It fits behind the rear seat in the cargo area, where most subs will not they are too tall, or too wide, or too deep. You know, too big. This sub puts out strong performance and can hit most notes. Unless you think you are some kind of elite audiophile, this sub will please you for sure. If you are some kind of elite audiophile and insist on spending more than this sub, maybe we'd all be better off if you just gave me that extra money!

Pros: Small size for tight spaces

An excellent addition for my car's stereo system.

Durwood from Duluth, MN on 9/17/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

A great addition for adding bass and depth to my car's stereo. I put this in a 1999 Subaru Forester, along with new speakers and it works great. I don't want it to rattle/break the windows, I don't want to be doing any kind of competition, I just want to know that I have bass and this works perfectly. When paired with my new Sony head unit that has a dedicated subwoofer out, and has it's own subwoofer level boost, I can set the knobs on the sub and leave it be. It really adds depth to all the music I listen to no matter the volume and has a nice thump when I want to crank it up.

Pros: Ease of install, sound quality, bang for your buck.

Cons: Has 2 pointless LED lights on it. I don't see the need for them, but that's just not my thing.

I purchased this unit to go into my ford ranger extended cab. I went back and forth on reviews for this unit and the b-8ptd. I wanted some more of a full sound for all type of music I play in my truck. I am happy I purchased this unit!! This was more icing on the cake for my stereo. Good weekend project/install for me. This sub is paired with 4- 6x8 pioneers TS-G6845R and a Pioneer DEH-6910BT head unit. I would purchase this item again for my next vehicle!!

Pros: Great value and packs a nice punch for 8inch sub. Simplicity at its best!!

Cons: Needs a remote bass knob like the B-8PTD

Sound Ordnance B-8P

Brandon from OR on 8/25/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This unit is an outstanding value for the price. It delivers a good amount of bass, but not overwhelming amounts. It's ported, so it gives the kind of bass that is good in hip-hop and electronic music. If I had one complaint, and it's hard to complain at this price point, it's that it does not seem able to hit very hard under 40hz or so. Not surprising for an 8" sub. Sometimes you'll hear in a song that one bass note is not reproduced well then the next one is slightly higher pitched and booms. This could be a problem with how I have my settings, but I don't think so.

Very pleased with this product. Bought for my son's birthday as a gift. We had already upgraded the factory "premium" sound system to Fosgate Prime separates in the front and coaxials in the rear. We added some 200hz bass blockers to the other speakers and then installed the Sound Ordnance B-8P. It was perfect for adding some much needed bass to the system. My son wasn't looking to wake up the neighborhood from a block away but wanted some decent bass to improve the sound in his ride. This powered sub was just the ticket! The speaker-level inputs simplified installation and the sound was easy to balance with the rest of the system. More than enough bass to fill the vehicle. Sounds great. If you're not trying to win competitions and just want some solid bass for your ride, then this is a great bang for your buck.

Pros: Compact Low price Great add-on to factory system

Cons: No remote for bass level

Way better than I ever thought an 8 inch sub would be. It's actually more than I needed. I just wanted to add a little bit of bass and this thing blows me away. I turned it to about half the power. Sounds great. Not going to rattle your car apart but definitely sufficient.

Pros: Powerful

Cons: Lacks on real low bass. It is an 8 after all.

2011 Chevrolet HHR

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Recently I inherited a 2011 Chevy HHR, which had a decent head unit and speakers, but the bass response was definitely lacking. Since the music I listen to (blues, classic rock, etc) doesn't require thumping, I just needed a basic sub added to my system. And I didn't want to run a separate Amp just for the sub. The B-8P fit the bill perfectly. I'm getting great bass response, the power rating is perfect for my system, and my music sounds great!

Pros: The price was right, great bass response, doesn't take up much room in the cargo area, and easy install. Recommend highly!

Cons: If you listen to bumpty-bump music and want your fenders and doors to rattle, go with something bigger.

Outstanding little subwoofer solution!!!!

Crutchfield customer from Seattle, WA on 4/26/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I installed this sub in a 2015 Honda Fit Ex that came with a 6 speaker factory setup. I also installed 2 Rockford Fosgate 6.5 coaxial speakers in my front doors. I have to admit that the install took much longer than I originally planned but a good portion of that time was my own fault. The sub, once installed correctly, is running above expectations and I'd actually forgotten how effective isobaric can be. I'm 45 years young and back in the day.... well, that's another story all together. The tech support I received from one of Crutchfields technicians "Oakley" was outstanding. I ran power from a T30 Torx bolt located at the fuse block instead of running from the battery terminal in order to save some time (my decision). I realize this isn't the best practice but I was trying to save some time and so far so good. I ran a ground wire in the hatch of the car near the sub and remote wire from the back of the factory Head unit to the sub. I also ended up running 16 gage speaker wire directly from the rear door speakers themselves to the sub, as I found splicing into the thin factory speaker wires at the bottom of the door pillars did not have enough power to drive the sub. I also found the colors of the speaker wire and polarity misleading on a couple of different sites, including what Crutchfield had on file for this car. Both rear door speaker wires were blue (positive), and pink (negative) for both doors. You can't beat a sub under $100 so don't hesitate this sub!

Pros: Price, efficiency, size, craftsmanship, perfect for filling in that low end sound in a small car.

Cons: As others have mentioned, the lack of a remote control for turning up the gains. This can only be done from the rear of the unit but that was clearly stated the descriptions so net a big deal. At this price point I can't complain.

Sounds 100 times better than i expected. If you want to add some bass to a system without spending a lot this will do great. I replaced 2 10" memphis subs with this and am not dissapointed at all. The only place this will let you down is in the lows. But it is an 8" so that is expected. But for anything other than rap music this thing is well worth the money. I do have an aftermarket deck so i have more control over it. I have a 4 door sedan and it still rattles the rearview mirror.

Pros: Best bang for the money. Takes up little space.

Cons: None

Just a fantastic solution for my van. Installed a Alpine CDE 164BT head unit and Alpine type R speakers first. Something was just missing. Added the powered sub and now I have all the low-end anyone could need. Feature-rich sub-woofer and it sounds great. I think next I'll add the Alpine KTP-445A power pack and some Dynamat to the doors and my sound should be about as good as it gets for a conversion van. My B-8P has a on / off switch for the LED lighting in the bottom left corner, next to the fuse. Nice added feature I am guessing is new.

Pros: Great feature set and really good sounding powered sub at a steal of a price.

Cons: None I can think of.

Bass quality is surprisingly good. I have the gain turned up to just a little less than 3/4. Using it in a 2011 2 door altima with stock head unit, bass set at "0" and the sub sometimes drowns door speakers (aftermarket ) level remote would have been a nice option even if it was offered as an accessory. In my opinion, enough to feel the bass inside, but don't expect to shake house windows or set off car alarms. Over all, well worth the money. Would recommend if you just want to add a little extra to your system.

Pros: Small, ported, stylish and economical

Cons: No remote level option

Great product for the price! I have a 2001 Mustang as my daily driver, and it has the dreaded Mach 460 system (the speakers are 8 ohms so not compatible with replacement 4ohms speakers - in order to replace them you would have to bypass the factory amps and perhaps get a replacement amp). I replaced the head unit a few years back which helped, but wow - adding this sub accented my current system so much so that I now don't feel that I need to replace the components - at least for now. Don't have super high expectations for a self-powered woofer, and you won't be disappointed. If you're looking for something that adds a little punch without spending a fortune (and a lot of time installing) - this fits the bill!

Put this in a 2016 regular cab ram with a Kenwood head unit. Still have the factory speakers that sound okay for now but needed a little more bass. I'm 47 so I wasn't looking for a 1000 watts. This worked really well to fill the void, with the space behind the seat it has to stay upright and not lay flat which is kind of a bummer. Overall happy with the purchase though.

Pros: Great sound

Cons: Little big behind the seat

80 Watt Sub.!

Firstly, remember, this is "only" an 80 watt sub. It easily fit in the trunk of my sons '99 Mits. Galant and rattles the interior, but in a very, positive way. We also replaced the rear deck speakers with Pioneer TS-A6966R and the sound/clarity increased exponentially.

Nice bass

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I have had many systems before and just wanted to add a little bit of sub to round out my new system. This box was easy to install and really hits when needed. It hits so hard I turned it down. Great buy for the money. If you want a lot of bass I would go up to a bigger woofer size, however if you want a little bass to round out a system this is perfect. I put it in a 2007 Honda Civic and its perfect.

Pros: Great price, perfect if you have the highs, and mids already and need a little bass. Plays my dance music, rock, and other music fine

Cons: If you like a lot of bass I would get a bigger sub woofer as this is not a ton of bass. great for small systems or for smaller cars.

Surprising sound!

Adam from Covington, KY on 9/8/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Wow... This thing sounds awesome! I went in knowing that this type of enclosure gives you much more powerful sound but I am surprised that its about as good as my old Rockford 10" without the bulk and in my '08 Mustang, it fits perfectly behind the wheel well. The materials are all very nice as well from the sturdy glass window to the soft carpet and metal backplate. The only reason I couldn't give it that fifth star is because the sub was mounted in offset to where the brand text is not centered and it's very noticeable. It's a shame because it has the lighting and such. Another issue is with one of the knobs on the rear being bent but still functions as it should. Overall I'm very impressed for the price. I would definitely buy it again...

Pros: Overall build quality and sound was above expectations for this price point.

Cons: Missed the fine details.

If you want to shake the neighborhood, not for you. If you want just enough bass for yourself, look no further. I purchased this amplified sub about 7-8 years ago. She's been with me since my first 96 jeep Cherokee sport. Moved her to my dodge till the engine blew and stored her when I had my Honda. Just recently pulled her from storage and installed in my 2012 liberty and I'm glad I never got rid of her. This little powered box is the bomb. Perfect clear bass and super easy to install every time. The price is unbeatable. I will say having it in a car trunk is not as good as when it's in a truck trunk. But if you own a trunk and want some extra bass without spending a lot and easy installment, this sub kicks ass!!! After almost 8 years And 3 vehicles she kicks like the day I bought her. Definitely recommend! No head unit change required if you don't want. Just buy a high/low converter with a built in trigger and your set!

Pros: Super durable Kicks clear and perfect Good size Super easy installment Awesome price

Cons: Not as good in car trunk as truck trunk

I purchased this and installed it about 3 months ago in my Silverado extended cab with a Sony head unit with RCA outputs and built in high pass and low pass filters. This head unit puts out 15 watts RMS per channel. I have this coupled to four 5.25" speakers. I have the sound ordnance sub mounted between my front seats to replace the jump seat and it makes a great armrest as well. The performance fits perfectly with the rest of the components. Great low end fill. Performs better than I expected.

Pros: Great value

Box bangs for a discount brand

Jim R. from Killeen, TX on 7/5/2016

1998 Ford Escort

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This little band-pass box bangs. No, it's not a Kicker SoloBaric so you can't expect results like that. But for a discount product line it serves it's purpose. I have zero regrets purchasing this little sub after a few weeks. Maybe it won't last as long as a big name brand, only time will tell. But for the $100-ish I paid it has enough value to dollar for me. I'm not using it in any SPL contests or to out do the guy next to me with the $3k setup. I simply wanted to add just a bit of thump to a replacement system in a beater car that gets driven a lot. I paired this powered sub with a JVC media head-unit that has a 4.0v pre-amp output and there are no issues. I read some reviews where people claimed they had no increase in bass response so I was a bit nervous about the purchase but my concerns turned out to be unfounded. All I can think of is those other consumers paired this with a head-unit with a very low pre-amp voltage output and/or didn't understand how to configure gain settings at either end in addition to the other settings options.

Pros: Very good value for the price point, Inexpensive, stable installation without permanent mounting, easy 4 connection wiring, ability to enable or disable the subwoofer light, sub works well and can add a legitimate amount of bass to a system for anyone not looking to win an SPL contest.

Cons: Being an off-brand it may not last as long as name brand equipment, power and response are not that of the more expensive name brands (but again you're not paying the same price)

The bass fills the small interior of the beetle really well. For as loud as it sounds inside the car I was pleasantly surprised its not loud outside the car. I would recommend this sub for anybody that wants good bass but isn't looking to be felt in other cars while sitting at stop lights.

Pros: Can install disconnects to make the sub quick and easy to remove if the space is required for moving larger objects.

Cons: None so far.

Amazing low end filler for the money.

James P from Chicago, IL on 6/13/2016

1998 Chevrolet Suburban

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Bought this to use as a low end filler. No disappointments whatsoever and it can really thump if asked to although I dont. I have a utility suburban so its cavernous behind the front and only seat so placement was no problem. BEWARE: Crutchfield recommends 8 g power supply wire generally on the website. This 80 watt unit is only 7.5 amps. 8 g wire kits with maxi fuses do not accept anything less than a 20 amp fuse. The 8g supply is overkill for this particular unit. 12 g with a conventional fuse holder is more than sufficient to install this unit. I now have to rewire the supply line as I do not feel comfortable using a 20 amp fuse. I would also add that Crutchfield tech support said the 20 amp fuse was ok....which it really isnt in the event of a frontal impact or anything that otherwise may short the supply or audio wiring. Great buy for more than sufficient bass.

Pros: Great value, more than sufficient low end filler.

Cons: Surprising misinformation from both the Crutchfield website and tech support.

Crutchfield response on 6/15/2016
Thanks to this informative review, one of our Tech gurus, Daniel, reached out to James to let him know we have created a new amp wiring kit for applications just like this, and we've added it as an accessory to this powered Sound Ordnance subwoofer. Thank you, James.

Wow, got this for the daughter's car as a Christmas gift. Was looking for something compact and not to radical since it was going in a 1999 Escort Sedan. The car was equipped with a Sony X-plode head unit and Kenwood speakers. This sub really filled the void in the bass and hits really, really well. It we were not looking for anything that rattled the car or was annoying to a nearby car in traffic. But honestly, this little powerhouse could do it with the gains settings ramped up! It is not used for that and provides a nice, compact all-in-one good looking sub. Will be purchasing another one here soon for the family car!

Pros: Sound Quality, appearance, cost.

Cons: None

Solid Product

Christian from Campbell, CA on 1/19/2016

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

For the money this is a great product! It was one of the cheapest powered sub woofers I could find, but it didn't disappoint. There is a very similar one available on another website, but I decided to go with Crutchfield because of their customer service and return policy. But after installing it and listening to it for a few weeks on an assortment of music, I won't be returning it. I have a Nissan Versa hatchback, and this thing fills out the lows very nicely. It does not hit the very low frequencies, unfortunately, but it will make almost all music sound better. A lot better! I thought about getting a 12" subwoofer to hit the very low frequencies better, but I didn't want to spend $80+ dollars more. I'm very happy with it...for the money. Turn the gain up and the bass becomes overwhelmingly strong!!

Pros: Cheap Loud

Cons: Very little LOW (20-40mhz) frequency response Package lists 50 watts RMS, 100 max.

Great Sub!

JWC from Arizona on 12/21/2015

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Installed this sub in my 2004 Nissan Frontier extended cab to round out my sound. I am very impressed. I was a bit skeptical about the band-pass enclosure but it makes all of my music sound great. From rap to pop to rock and metal. Double bass blast-beats sound just as good as the 808 drops. You're not going to wake the neighbors with this one, but it sure as heck will fill the cab of your truck or your small car with pretty clean bass for the money. Installation was a breeze and the available adjustments are nice. I'm using my head units high pass filter to keep the base out of my door speakers and pilla i'm using my head units high pass filter to keep the base out of my door speakers and The tweeters in the pillars. I have the low pass filter on the subwoofer set to 200 Hz. I love that they put an on/off switch for the LED lighting. I can't really see it anyway, but it is a nice option.

Pros: Great sound for not much $. Easy install and versatile sound.

Cons: If you're looking to wake the neighbors or get the attention of the girls in the car next to you, this isn't the sub for you.

An awesome subwoofer that produces excellent bass for only being an 8" sub. Just finished installing it in my 1998 Honda Accord with a Pioneer radio, and I couldn't be happier with how it all came together. Highly recommended if you have a smaller car or just want a subwoofer that gives you good punch but doesn't rattle the windows.

I bought this sub to add to my stock monsoon system in my 2006 Grand Prix. I got the audio signal through a line out converter.

I installed the new receiver and got rid of the line out converter and connected the sub directly to the output on the back of the receiver. All I can say is WOW!!!!

Stop debating about other powered sub enclosures. I dropped this bad dude in my wife's Toyota Highlander and holly crap did this thing surprise me. For it being only a 8" sub, it sounds like a 12" and the enclosure is very nice on the eyes. The illumination feature is merely just a white light that lets you see in the box, not a colored one in which I thought it may be. Anyways, instead on buying a separate amp and sub enclosure this thing made it easy. All you need to do is wire the amp kit and plug her in, presto! I will come back and upload a you tube video for everyone. The you tube videos I watched really didn't do it justice, but they did help a little. The quality sound it produces for under $150 is outstanding. This will make any music super fun to listen to for fractions of the price. That is all, I'm going outside to go sit in the car and jam out.

Pros: Sound Quality; Price tag; Small in size, not in sound

Cons: I would have preferred a side mounted amp connection vs. rear input

Love the product, works great and for a great price. Delivers a deep bass without distorting sound. Only problem with it is that the directions for tuning the sub are difficult.

Pros: Great sound, good price

Cons: Tuning, can get a cheaper wiring kit online

I installed four new polk speakers and a Pioneer receiver to replace the stock system on my 13 silverado crew cab. I waited with the sub install because I forgot to order the wiring kit for it. The polk speakers sounded awesome, good all around sound. Clear and sharp. Then I added the subwoofer and holy smokes! This thing adds a whole new dimension. Adjustability is great. Classical music sound heavenly and Metallica rocks out!

Pros: Sound, ease of install, sound.

Cons: Size. Does not really fit my truck, but I sacrifice a bit of rear seat for great sound!

Bought one of these three years ago for another vehicle and sold it when I sold the car. Just bought another one - the Sound Ordnance B-8P - for my 2012 Civic and love it all over again. This time I am using with high-level inputs from the rear speakers and the low end is excellent. Really completed my factory sound system. install took about 30 minutes. Love it once I got all the levels and settings all tuned. Excellent!

Pros: Price, fit and finish, value, LED lighting

Cons: Not a single one

For the price I cant imagine a bigger improvement in my trucks sound. It was a straightforward installation. Not easy, not too hard. It took me about four hours. I was disappointed was I first fired it up. Then I started to play with the sound controls. When I got the crossover set right it opened up the sound. I think it took over the lows that my six inch speakers were having trouble making. All in all a great buy.

Awsome sound for an 8

I cannot believe anyone would give this product anything lass than 5 stars, I have owned JL audio, Rockford Fosgate, MTX, and Kenwood sound systems, that were all fantastic, the reason I tried out sound ordinance out was because of the great reviews that people left. My kedwood system was stolen out of my car and I didnt want to go to the expense of replacing everything, so I put a sony xplode stereo in and this Sound Ordinance powered sub in, I figured for the bucks I paid for the sub was well worth it, I already had the wiring that was the only thing that survived the theft. I have always has a stereo system of some sort in every vehicle that I have ever owned. I was completely surprised by the bump I got out of this 8" sub. I have it in the trunk of my 2000 ford escort and it sounds amazing.

Pros: Price, sound, and great quality

Cons: none what so ever

Not loud enough for me

Drennen from United States on 1/6/2015

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

It was okay, built solid, easy to hook up. I wished it had a remote for the volume level. The bottom line for me is that it could not surpass the bass from my door and rear deck speakers. It was about equal. So I am returning it. If you have very little bass in your system currently, this would be an affordable improvement. If you have large door speakers and 6x9 deck speakers like me, it might not be able to really add to that. Probably need a 12 and 150+ watts.

Pros: Solid, high quality construction. Attractive

Cons: Its still an 8" sub. Which for some people, will not be enough.

Good little sub to fill in the lows. This is not the sub that rattles your windows and pounds your chest but it gives your sound system the bass that is lacking from the door speakers.

Pros: Well constructed, solid and provides adequate bass. Compact.

Cons: The plexiglass look makes it gimmicky, I guess it appeals to the younger crowed. The 8 inch sub does not provide the boom that you maybe looking for. Should provide better documentation in tuning the sub

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

So far so good. This was purchased to fill in the lows for a new setup in Saturn outlook. Definitely not put in to shake the mirrors off the car, for filling in the music and adding the punch and fill the 6 1/2 door speakers can't handle cleanly, it performs very well. Having the amp internal makes removal when I need the cargo space a breeze!

Pros: All in one design makes removal when I need space easy. Fills in music very nicely and price is reasonable

Cons: So far is doing exactly what I bought it for so closes to a con I have is my teens want enough base to blow the windows out.....an 8 won't do that.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This sub woofer and amp combo is a beast, and as everyone has said delivers solid bass. I am a teenager and I think this is fully sufficient for the bass heavy music these days. You will definitely feel that vibration, but without it vibrating your entire car, which I think is ridiculous. Also, if you do want it to shake your whole car,,, you're going to have to increase your price range a couple hundred dollars. Also note that you cannot expect to install this yourself in a quick period of time unless you are experienced with car stereo systems. I have never done anything with stereo systems, and I decided to fully re-do my '96 Jeep Cherokee's. I got this sub, 2 new Kicker speakers, and a Clarion head unit. All of these took me a total of about 10 or 11 hours to install, but in my opinion, is totally worth saving the money for somebody to install it. So what I'm trying to say is, you will run into problems, blowing fuses, missing wires, missing tools, etc. so just know you're in for a ride installing this and possibly a whole new stereo system, but I found it fun and so satisfying at the end when you get that feeling of "I FINALLY finished". Would totally recommend, even though it is somewhat a hassle to install.

Pros: Great bass Great price (you won't find a better deal for a sub and an amp) Don't have to buy or install a separate sub and amp Looks nice

Cons: Takes a while to install If you want a crazy sub that shakes your entire car, this isn't the one for you

Installed in my 1998 camry. I hav a 9month old son so I need to fit a stroller into the trunk. I didn't want to get this Sub because I was scared nothing was gonna fit. But when it came in and I installed it, I had plenty of space in my trunk for groceries and the stroller. The sound coming out of my trunk is amazing! Raddls the back when I want it to. Sounds perfect and add plenty of bass to my car. Sounds nice and clear and not messy at all. Very happy with the price and sound of the sub and it was a perfect price for me.

Pros: Loud Doesn't take up too much room Good bass Is stroller proof Heavy duty Built to last Amazing sound Perfect for small trunks

Cons: None so far!

For the money spent I am very satisfied with the Sound Ordnance 8" powered sub. It's exactly what I needed to fill in the void in my system. This sub will not blow out any windows but the sound is great, powerful and more than I would expect for the size and retail. Hook up was a breeze since it was an "all in one" system. I was surprised how many more negative reviews or unhappy reviews there were on much more expensive powered subs.

Pros: wallet friendly, easy to hook up, great bass production, sub box looks good and appears to be well built

Cons: No owners manual or directions on installation and suggested crossover settings. The sub box takes up allot of room. All in all many more pro's than con's!

Depending on what you want, personally I don't think you can go wrong with this sub. Thanks again Crutchfield!

These things are great! I put one in my wife's car ('97 4Runner) along with a set of Kenwood separates in the front doors. The sound difference is amazing. The new speakers in the door work for the highs and mids, and the sub just rounds out the sound. I can't believe what I have been missing all these years. Bass makes music that much more enjoyable. My kid was so impressed with the sub that I got him one for his 18th birthday. He has Sound Ordnance 6 1/2" speakers in the front and rear of his '96 Jeep Cherokee and it sounded good before but now it sounds really good with this sub. I highly recommend this sub, its is a great bang for the buck. It is fairly easy to dial in and it sounds good. For that matter, the Sound Ordnance 6 1/2" speakers sound great as well. I was told by the salesman that these are Crutchfield's house brand car audio speakers. If you are looking for a decent speaker for a good price, I would not hesitate to buy a Sound Ordnance product, especially this sub.

Pros: good bass, good price, built in amp with plenty of power.

Cons: not that compact, but not huge either

Big Sound, Small Price

EricE from Glendale, CA on 9/30/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

2012 Honda Civic "Premium" sound system didn't sound quite so premium so I'd replaced stock speakers with Kicker 6.5" 2-way (41DSC654) which was a great improvement in sound quality, but still lacking any low-end oomph. The stock shelf mounted sub really didn't add much to speak of so that was the next upgrade. Due to space restrictions I decided to forgo replacing the stock shelf mounted sub in favor of locating the B-8P self powered enclosed sub in the trunk. For the signal I connected the existing sub high level (1-channel) to one channel on the B-8P (not sure if that's the right way to do it or not, can't get a clear answer out of Crutchfield on that). This sub is exactly what I was looking for. Provides the perfect amount of low frequency boost (even at low volumes) and the small enclosure fits nicely in the trunk area without taking up too much room. It's not going to blow the doors off but it definitely adds the low frequencies that I was totally missing before. Product quality is top notch, good solid construction and easy to use controls. The clear window seems strong and should stand up to the rigors of living in the cargo area. I don't have any feelings pro or con about the clear window or the led lighting since I don't spend much time in the trunk while driving. If you're looking for a great low cost and easy to install sub, can't go wrong with this one. Big sound for such a small box that's easy on the wallet. I would highly recommend.

Pros: Big sound, small enclosure, wallet pleasing price, high quality construction, attractive design, easy to use.

Cons: A bit vague on installation instructions (can't believe I'm the first person to try and connect this to an existing 1-channel sub high level input). Their recommendation was to connect to the L & R speakers, but I would lose the dedicated sub volume control on the head unit, so I don't want to go that way. They also suggested splitting the single sub to low level and then use a splitter, but not sure if that's (a) necessary or (b) if it will improve performance. Still confused on that.

I installed this in the trunk of my 1995 honda accord, and wow was I impressed. Definitely did not expect a 80w rms sub to perform like that. I was looking for a lower powered sub because my car's alternator is too old for a high powered one, but you would think this thing is high powered. It's not going to rattle the car next to you, but it will make your seat vibrate and the windows shake. My mom could even hear in the house at a low volume when I first put it in. This was my first time installing a sub and the installation process went smoothly. Great buy and would recommend it for anyone on a budget.

Pros: Great value Louder than expected Good sound

The Sub for adults

rdhqcpro from Charlotte, NC on 9/2/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

If you under 25 or maybe even 30 you probably need to look at a different sub-woofer. Although this sub is MORE than capable of making the rear view mirror vibrate and sometimes I'm surprised just how powerful it really is, it will not deliver the destructive force which most younger customers are usually looking for. But if you've had enough birthday's and put a few notches in the maturity belt AND appreciate some serious bass to round out your car tunes for a low price then this is the one for you. I am NO expert is Sub-Woofers. However, I know enough about music and have enough of an ear to appreciate good sound. This sub will fill in those low notes that interior speakers just cannot produce and will do it at a low price without sacrificing a large amount of trunk space either. It's actually a rather nice looking device as well. Is it THE best out there, I doubt it. But for the price and when you've got bills to pay this one does nicely! I highly recommend this sub for those on a tight budget and who simply want to fill in those lower frequencies that can only be produced with a sub-woofer. This Sub turns my 45 - 60 minute commute into a 15 minute "Hey, I home already and I still need to finish my tune" ride. Nice job Sound Ordnance!

Pros: Low Price Built-in Amp Relatively simple to install due to built-in Amp Sufficient power and bass response for most music Good Looks On / off switch for the decorative LED's Sounds fine!

Cons: Won't shatter the glass in the car in the next lane over.

I was leaving towards a bazooka tube, but then I stumbled across this thing for even less money and looks way better. After reading so many great reviews I had to check it out. Hooked it up today, and MAN! You'd never think it was an 8" sub.. Love this setup and the fact that it's an all in one deal..

This sub hits much harder than I ever expected. I wanted something to just round out the overall sound in my car and this sub did an awesome job of just that. At high volumes it does start to drop off, most noticeably with bass heavy music. I bought this after previously running a 600 watt rms 12inch. So I knew it was never going to have bass as deep as I was used too, however I have been thoroughly surprised by how powerful this 8 inch hits in this nicely tuned enclosure.

Massive sound/Built like a tank

CalM from Hartford, CT on 8/8/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I went along with this purchase after reading a lot of the reviews. I will admit that I was worried about it filling out my car through the trunk (I drive a Civic LXS 2009) but I was immediately WOWed once I got things up and running and set correctly. I have 4 polk DXi651s speakers and only 4 RCA inputs on my head unit. I plan to use a splitter to run the 4 speakers to the "Front" connection and then keep the SW on the "Rear/SW" RCA ports. So as of right now, I have the front speakers going and this monster in the trunk... I mean seriously, it's an 8 inch sub and 80 watts blah blah blah but this thing will envelope you in warm clean present bass that sounds like an absolute thunderstorm (if you want it to) and compliments the system marvelously. It's loud inside and really not obnoxious outside of the car with the windows down and doors closed. At only 120$, you would be silly to not get this if you're simply looking for something relatively compact with a lot of balls and nice features. Get excited and get one. Also, I haven't Velcro'd it down yet or anything... The carpet exterior hold nicely to the trunk floor and this thing has some weight to it, so don't let the pictures fool you. Measure out the dimensions with a measuring tape or something to get a true idea of what it is.

Pros: The bass slams for it's size and power. Very well built product. Doesn't make my hair shake or rib-cage crack (which I appreciate).

Cons: I didn't get this way back when I replaced my stock door and rear speakers

Decent sounding little sub

B.S. from Wailuku, HI on 7/21/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I was looking for something small and self-powered to augment my system (Sienna van.) When I was in my 20s I used to roll with 2x 12" sealed then later settled down with a 10" bandpass. I'm not looking for SPL anymore, but I wanted something that will round out the rest of the system nicely. Have an upgraded head unit and speakers but was missing some bottom end. Was about to order a Bazooka 8" and I came across this B-8P system. I must say that I was surprised at how compact it is. And it puts out clean sound. It's not going to shake the next car over, and I wouldn't recommend it for someone that's using externally amplified main speakers. But add it to a stock setup or a lower powered setup, it adds good bottom end and reduces distortion in your main speakers since they're not being asked to put out frequencies below 120Hz. Oh and free UPS shipping to Hawaii? Crutchfield rocks!

Pros: Clean sound from a compact unit. Very inexpensive. Free shipping to Hawaii!

Cons: If I have to be picky, the blue power LED is too bright so I put a piece of electrical tape over it. I can also see this being underpowered for a sedan if it's sitting in the trunk. Works well in something open like a wagon, hatchback or van.

Solid Sub Choice

Jeff from Missoula, MT on 7/20/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

After installing this, I can definitely see the value proposition that people here rave about. I was concerned, like many others, about what a single 8" sub could really do in a reasonably large vehicle like my Nissan Pathfinder. Those concerns are a thing of the past now, I'm super happy with my "bargain basement" powered sub and will keep it for the long term. If you're familiar with the differences between a sealed box and a bandpass box, this will produce typical bandpass bass. It's not quite as "tight" as you'd expect from a sealed box, but that's not a major deal when you're simply seeking filling out the overall sound. This thing certainly provides enough thunder for my needs, I can feel it and it gives me the satisfaction of a reasonably hard hitting system. I still can't believe the price, though...value-wise, I think you could spend a lot more and get a lot worse. When I first lit the thing up, I had to ask myself...is this thing on? I was underwhelmed...so I started looking at how my new deck was set up. Sub output on? Check. Sub gains? Eh maybe needs a little more. Bass gains? Maybe let's give it even a bit more. I think next song up on the radio was a bit of old school AC/DC...it was but a moment before I found myself immersed in the sound, the kick drums hitting me like a sledge hammer. I totally forgot I was tuning the radio and just became lost in the music with me grinning ear to ear over the quality of my sub-$300 system. Good value sub!

Pros: Great value proposition Strong enough for a decent sized vehicle Good size LED can be tuned on/off Enough power to run the sub Integrated LPF & Phase settings Easy to read hookups Quality connections Free shipping

Cons: Bandpass bass - not as tight as sealed boxes Not much else, really

It's been 2 years since I bought this sub and I am still amazed at how great it sounds. The built in amp has held up great. The sub has had no issues. I love watching people look around when I pull up behind them and they try to figure out why their car is vibrating. ;-) ;-) ;-)

Pros: Great price. Excellent sound.

Cons: None

This was my first sub so I didn't really know what exactly to look for. When I asked the lady on here she told me this would have enough power for my little car but it really didn't. I was never satisfied. I would turn the power up but it never performed to my liking. Then one day it all of a sudden didn't really work anymore and I couldnt figure it out!! I asked 3 of my friends and no one knew. So I sent it back and have dreams of a real sub one day.

Pros: small, confusing to others

Cons: everything else

Big Sound on a Small Budget

AudioDad from TN on 5/30/2014

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The S/O B-8P is an excellent value. Why might you ask? It's an all in one unit priced under $120 that can deliver more than adequate bass to any vehicle. Sturdy enclosure that is stroller proof. If you don't know what stroller proof is, you don't pack and unpack a giant stroller for your kids on a daily basis. As most people can relate, I updated the entire sound system and was missing bass. Since I have a wife and 2 kids, I don't have a huge budget for car audio so I was limited on my choices. Not to worry, Crutchfield had my back with the B-8P. Quick shipping, quick install, quick test, quick tune, quick smile from my wife as if I was the 17 year old with two Rockford Fosgate 15"s she fell in love with. I'm mid 30's but still a kid at heart by the way. Country, Rock, Rap, Kids Bop, it doesn't matter cause it all sounds good with this sub. I'm sure this unit has its limitations, but I will never come close to needing to meet them with my listening habits. Dads typically act rather stupid when they hang out together, so yeah, now we are blasting that old school rap, rock, etc and we really don't care how dorky we look. And yes, the previous reviewers are right about people thinking you have a set of 10's or something similar dropping that bass they are hearing. They are always surprised to see the meager little box setting in the cargo area. You can turn the lights off inside this box which is a great idea, because lights are the one feature I didn't need.

Pros: Value, Value, Value. Bass, Bass, Bass. It doesn't rattle my ride, but fills it with sound.

Cons: No cons here. This thing is perfect for the decerning dad on a budget.

Fills in the lows

buyer6060 from Pinole, CA on 5/27/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I needed a powered sub to fill in the lows. Knowing I don't need two 12's to blow out my auto body panels, this fit the bill. Clear, punchy lows without the brain rattle to round out the sound. Now, the four 6.5 speakers can concentrate on anything over 100hz, which is where I have my HPF set. Clarity is more important to me than pure SPL.

Pros: Just what I needed to fill in the lows.

Cons: Took up a little more space than I thought for an 8 inch box. I have the Infinity Basslink in another car which has a smaller footprint.

Very impressed, and here is why

Patrick from State Center, IA on 4/6/2014

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

First, let's just say I am 100% happy with this. More details on that further down in my review. But let me qualify something first: Up until 10 years ago I did a lot of freelance work building tuned/ported boxes, usually using JL Audio subs and amps, or Kicker. One of my designs set a local record for bass output, using JL Audio 12W0's and a ported box with a firsr-gen JL monoblock amp, and hit 149 db with only two subs that had no business being that loud. That said, I always took pride in the quality of my work, and the quality and clarity of the sound. That being said, I knew this powered sub wouldn't be pavement-cracking in terms of sheer power, but after reading so many positive reviews, I had to give it a shake for under a hundred bucks. Never heard of Sound Ordnance before, but what the heck. So this arrived the other day, and today I installed it in the trunk of my daily driver. I also just installed a new Kenwood head unit and door/panel speakers as well, and was looking forward to some extra lows. The result of this sub install? Worth every penny. For a low-power 8" sub, this thing is efficient. Great lows. Bandpass boxes can be really teicky to tune dimensionally, but this thing is solid, and well-balanced I might add. You can actually feel it, and the sound quality is perfect for any factory or aftermarket setup that is looking for deep bass with excellent clarity, without breaking windows. Build quality is great. Awesome value, period.

Pros: Great sound quality, can actually feel the lows, solid build quality.

Cons: None

Big Boom in a Small Package

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I was quite suprised at the amount of bass this tiny subwoofer enclosure produces with a variety of music like rock/metal/techno/dance/rap! I installed the sub in the trunk of a small coupe car and it actually hits pretty hard with the rear folding seats upright (closing off the trunk) and it sounds even better with one or two seats down (exposing the trunk). The small footprint of the enclosure worked out well because my trunk space is valuable for lugging groceries and sports equipment. I like the plexiglass window that covers the subwoofer so I can toss stuff in the trunk without worrying about puncturing the speaker. After reading through hundreds of reviews on this product I decided to take a chance and it was well worth the investment. The subwoofer is shipped double boxed so it arrived safely even with a rough shipping courier like UPS! Two thumbs up!

Pros: Punchy Bass, Bass You Can Feel, Sounds Great, Small Footprint, Inexpensive

Cons: No Wiring Kit Included, Makes Neighbors Angry

SO B8-P Incredible Bass for a 8" Sub at this price

Metal Accord from Souh Florida on 4/3/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

First let me start off by thanking Cructhfield's awesome customer team and tech team, they are #1. I've had 8" subs in trucks and a few kicker subs in a couple of my past vehicles and I don't think I have installed a Sub with as much ease as this one. I put in my Accord coupe and I still can't believe the amount of bass that this subwoofer is pushing out. It is not 2 12" subs or a 12" sub for that matter, but I am extremely impressed with the quality, look and feel of the subwoofer. If you are like me and are not looking to blow your ears out andjust want a nice decent aamount of bass, look no further.

Pros: Quality build, great bass and price is incredible.

Cons: Wish it had a bass remote.

Installed today and my neighbor asked if I could turn it down because her house was shaking, no bull I was astonished that it was an 8 in. Still couldn't believe my neighbor said her house was shaking she's almost across the street from me!

Pros: Hits decently hard and fits perfect for my Aveo hatchback

Cons: I need to figure out how to get the remote switch working

very, very surprising

Alex from Richmond, Va on 3/27/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I just got this product today and installed it immediately. Installation was very straight forward; they even have a video on this sub's page on how to install it. It took me about 3 hours start to finish, but then again, I'm very particular about aesthetics and how wires are routed so it probably took me a bit longer than it should have. As soon as I hooked the battery back up and powered the sub up to 50%, I could tell a HUGE difference. I got this to even out the low ends in my system and it does that better than I could have possibly hoped. I'm running an Alpine UTE-52BT head unit, 2 JBL 6.5" speakers in the doors, and 2 JBL 6x9 speakers in the back. The mid's and highs were already amazing with my speakers, but were definitely missing that lower range response. I read all the reviews on this subwoofer and decided to give it a shot because hey, it's wasn't expensive. The only thing I had to buy on top of that was the amp wiring kit which added a few extra bucks. I honestly cannot believe how powerful this thing is. For only being 80 watts continuous, this thing has a very, very surprising amount of thump to it. It's not completely overwhelming, but honestly, it's probably more than I need. And that's coming from someone who listens to a good amount of electronica and metal. I'll admit, I was a bit skeptical at first because Sound Ordnance has a fairly cheesy military theme (it even came with fake dog tags) but boy was I wrong. I highly recommend this sub.

Pros: powerful cheap sounds great

Cons: kind of big (but from what I read, bandpass boxes usually are) doesn't come with anything for fastening it to a surface very bright blue LED power light

bought this as a present to myself for christmas and installed it myself a week later. i have it all tuned and it works perfectly! i needed a small sub to round out some three way speakers in my dodge dakota and this does the trick. i listen to mostly rap and dance. its boomy and loud

Pros: loud, small, cheap, easily installed, quality, visually appealing

Cons: not super tight bass (dont care because I'm going for volume not crispness)

Not a large amount of bass, but pretty good

Matt from Westminster, SC on 3/6/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Price vs Bass produced is definitely worth it. Finding an amp and sub for this cheap is impossible. The thump is noticeable but nothing crazy. I have had vehicles with 2 10" bandpass, and 2 12" ported, and this comes no where near that amount of kick. However, it is worth the 100 dollars if you want something small you can toss in your vehicle to add some bass. Hits some pretty decent lows.`

Pros: Adds Thump, cheap price, worth the money

Cons: big for an 8", not nearly as powerful as 2 12" like others say

Wanted something small and affordable for my eclipse to liven up the sound some. I installed this and was blown away, it hits harder than i thought it would. Definitely recommend this to people who have a hatchback, suv or a truck that it will fit in. Way better than i thought it would be. Also if it helps, im running a jvc headunit with subwoofer preouts that has a built in subwoofer controller. I have sony 6 1/2 3 ways all around.

Pros: Sounds awesome for an 8" subwoofer. The bass plays low and clear.

Cons: Probably would not sound as good in a trunk styled car unless you fold the seat down.

Just like everyone else stated, if you want competition window rattling police chasing you sound then this isn't your choice. This little guy definitely puts out more bass than i thought though. I have it in a hatchback so im sure it's louder than in a trunk but i love it. Just what i needed to compliment my kicker highs in the doors. Can't beat the minimal space it takes up too!

Pros: Compact size Low price Crisp sound Good looks

Cons: None

As a dad, I wanted a solid system but not the BOOM you get with larger systems. I tried a Kenwood underseet sub and was very disappointed. So I ordered this one and was AMAZED. Not only is it full, no distortion, and has deep low end I wanted. But I can also bump it up to feel like my younger bass head self. You will not be disappointed.

Pros: Loud, deep, low end, no distortion.

Cons: None
