Summary: Purchase 2 in 11-2014 for an apartment's main combo dining/living/kitchen/halls---about 600 sq. ft.. I was very nervous about getting these. I wanted front firing 10 inch sub-woofers. These had the JBL reputation of flat response. I didn't know if they could fill a medium size residence room, they did--loud crisp lower bass without the boom. I use them with a 7.2 SONY with 115W per channel and 10 inch Klipsch towers and bookshelf Klispch surrounds.
Summary: The sub woofer has power and can does what it needs to do. That said it works for a month then just dies and then you cant get commercial work done under warranty anywhere. I called jbl and they gave me a number that hasn't been doing work for them in 10 years. So you can get it but i suggest getting information on who does work under warranty around you.
Excerpt: I bought this subwoofer because mine new subwoofer that i bought in july 2014, it's not good. It make a very strong noise, and I can't use it. I bring this subwoofer to Brasil, and nobody,could help me wich it! I want tell that it is in guarantee yet, but Harman Brasil, sad they can't give me guarantee ! Its very boring! I'm in Brasil now, and I will go to USA in Marc, and I will check the new subwoofer ! I hope honestly, it's better, that this i bought last year!
Summary: This is a very musical sub and digs relatively deep(about 24-25hz in room). I use it in a studio and its not flubby sounding at all, I can easily hear bass notes and transients that are lost on most cheapo subs. For a small to meduim sized room, this is an excellent "entry-level" sub for music (never tried it on movies or H.T.). Only issue is mine runs slightly warm to the touch in stand-by mode.
Summary: The sub was awesome for the week that it worked. From the first play it started giving off a weird burning rubber smell and within a week it was dead. Never turned it up past half, or did anything that would lead to it burning out, it just decided it didn't want to work anymore. I returned this product and got a refund, bur only after I paid the $35 shipping charge to send it back. I'm not sure if I will replace it or not.
This Bad-Boy will NOT disappoint you. My wife hates it

Summary: This Bad-Boy will NOT disappoint you. My wife hates it ! I love it !! She is always saying, "do you need that much bass because it is rattling the walls up here"? I say, "Hell Yes I Do" ! I put this woofer on my Yamaha stereo down here in the basement with a concrete floor and it really knows how to irritate her upstairs.
Excerpt: If I were using this for an audio setup where it didn't have to be moved frequently I would give this speaker 5 stars. It sounds great so far, but I have not used it much yet. I'm using it instead of a mammoth 18 in sub-woofer enclosure and it sounds just as good in situations where I don't need as much volume. So far I'm very happy with it, but only time will tell how it will last.
