Summary: I was fairly new to HT when I bought the JBL E150P. Luckily, I had a reference point, a home theater in my living room that a full service HT installer put in. The reference point subwoofer is a Pinnacle AC Sub 100. It cost me about $400 and I have been very satisfied with it.

Summary: I had this sub-woofer, and it is the best 10" around. It is great. Get one, if this is what you are looking for. I just use my pc now, but i had alot of fun, w/ the JBL 10" sub, and you can find them priced very, very low.
Summary: This is a great sub for entry-level to mid-level systems, where you have some measure of control over the listening environment. Its construction quality is high, has sufficient power to provide a good listening experience in a small to moderate sized room, is tight, and is musical.
Summary: I originally purchased the Yamaha YST-SW215 8" Powered Subwoofer. I was underwhelmed by the performance and the cheap construction. However, at $99, I got what I paid for. I returned it and began looking for other options.
Summary: This Speaker seems to be no longer manufactured. As far as I can tell by the published specs. the JBL SUB 10 is its replacement. The grill is different. My E150P is well engineered and is very pleasing to listen to.
Great for HT...not so good for music...It's all about the source...

Summary: This sub does a good job for Home Theater in a small to medium sized room but for music it just doesn't go low enough. Would work better in a bedroom or a dorm. You'll only hear the difference if you're source is via digital coax or fiber optic cable.
Summary: I needed to replace a pair of bookshelf speakers and decided to add the JBL E150P subwoofer to the order since the price was only $179 with free shipping. This sub has made a significant improvement to the sound of my system adding full rich bass without booming.
Summary: This is one audio purchase that I've never stopped kicking myself for...bought it when I was just getting into audio and didn't know any better. The e150 is just horrible, doesn't go low enough (claims to do 25Hz but realistically probably just touches 35-40Hz) without resonating and booming like...
Summary: Well this subwoofer has a very narrow sweet spot...turn it up too much and it resonates, turn it down too much and you can't hear it. If you don't have high expectations it'll do, and the price is certainly attractive.
