Conclusion: I installed my new 15" JBL's in my suburban and can't believe how good they sound on just a 500 watt amp! I can put a lighter out sitting in my front seat and not even turned up halfway. Best deal I've ever found for hard hitting subs.
Conclusion: I recently purchased two of these woofers for use in a small room EDM application. I mounted them in single 1.5 cu. ft. boxes and am running them in series at 8 ohms and have 800 watts of power going to each one. They pound the walls roof and floor quite well.
Conclusion: First off. It says JBL right on the dust cap. It's beautiful and massive. I want to give a good review. But I don't have cons. It sounds deep rattles everything that gets in it's way and is not gonna cr*p out anytime soon. Runnin it on a 900 watt pioneer amp and it isn't a power hungry beast.
Conclusion: Testing my first sonotube build on a budget for home theater. Tried the first 9 minutes of Star trek, ITD. Testing with a condenser mic it recorded .8 % of the time between 16 to 27Hz. The box was tuned to 20Hz. Infrasonic filter set to 13Hz so the cone would not surpass it's excursion.
Summary: Superb value for money as are all JBL subwoofers.Genuine power handling as they recommend of up three times the RMS rating as long as it's clean and undistorted power. The only thing I have to complain about is their recommended box sizes,for this and all other current 15s they give 1.5 cu.ft as...
Conclusion: I have had this sub for about 8 months and have had no problems at all. When i bought it it was only like $130 but now its $199. For what i paid it cant be beat. I also have 2 Memphis PR 15's and this JBL has much better sound quality. But for $200 i would probably buy a Type R.
Conclusion: I have had mine for about 2 months now. At first i received the singe voice coil version by mistake but i was able to ship it back fast and no cost to me (thanks sonic!) But anyway, i running 450 rms to it and i think it could handle at least 500.

Conclusion: I had two of these subwoofers and they really pound. I had them in a sealed enclosures and it was still shaking everything. This is a nice entry level subwoofer. Would reccomend this to anyone that us just getting into car audio.
