Summary: I bought the JBL E250P after hearing it, shopping around to hear what else was available, and then realizing it was a very musical sub that never strained to reach those bottom notes. So I bought it. But like so many others, mine died after 5 years of great service. Same symptoms as so many others.
Summary: The E250 is the right sub if you are looking for a very good balance in price/performance. It will not wake up all the neighborhood but outputs power enough to have a satisfactory experience in home theater applications.
Nice - but buy the longest extra warranty available
4 May 2006
Summary: Purchased the first one from an online vendor and it arrived DOA. Warranty was honored and the second unit arrived about 2 weeks after the first was returned. AWESOME deep bass for movies (especially U571 and the depth charge blasts). Rattled the glasses on our bar.
Summary: I have this sub paired with JBL E30 satelites, JBL E C35 center, JBL E N24WII for surrounds and a Yamaha RX-V767 AV receiver/amp. This sub is the star of my new HT/stereo setup. I use this system in my main family/great room for music 60% of the time and surround system for movies 40%, and this sub...
Summary: Even though I already have a wonderful PB12 of 3+ years, I saw this at Best Buy for a hundred bucks as it has a broken grill. No problem there, 30 minute fix. My previous setup (N38II's, N26II's, S-CenterII and the PB12) was perfect. I couldn't do hardly any better without spending big bucks.
Summary: This is a great sub for the price. i had a 10" 230w onkyo that was just ok,but i wanted a little more so i got the jbl e250p for $220.free shipping and i got much more than i expected.it is scary when you are watching dvds, and i am more than happy with it for music.
Summary: This is my third JBL subwoofer. JBL offered me the E250P after my second PB12 stopped working and could not be fixed! The first PB12 I had stopped working within a month, so Best Buy was willing to let me exchange it for another PB12. I thought that my first one was just a fluke.
Summary: I bought this sub to replace one that broke and I am glad I did. Whether I'm listening to music or watching a movie, the sound coming from this sub is clear, precise, and really enhances the listening experience.
Summary: This Northridge Sub, rumble with movies, it's ideal and perfect, at very low frequencies and imperceptible distorsions rated at high levels at 25Hz with the crossover set on 50Hz you'll hear and feel the ".1" In addition, you should try the 180º or 0º switch mode.
