Summary: I had to get this sub to replace a Klipsch monster. I do not have the same amount of money to throw around like I used to. But I needed a new sub. I decided on this one because of the reviews ,size and watts of this sub. Oh yeah and the incredibly reasonable price. I was expecting decent but not exceptional performance. I can say with no hesitation. I was more than pleasantly surprised. It sounds great. It pounds when needed.
Summary: This is a very good sounding sub for the price. I compared others at higher prices and liked how this produced a full range to compliment the other speakers. It fills a 1500 sq ft room with cathedral ceiling very well. I would buy another.
Perhaps the best price/performance sub around?....

Summary: I highly recommend this sub to anyone looking for a great value in home theater. I did so much research and reading before buying this Venue 12, and had almost talked myself out of getting it because of some saying that 'if you can't spend X amount then don't even bother', and the X amount just kept getting higher and higher.
Summary: Recently I built myself a new home theater system. My System: Receiver: Denon 887 (really like this receiver... wish it was a bit more powerful, but still great) Speakers: Front Left/Right: JBL E80 (Black Ash) 3-Way, Dual 6-Inch Floorstanding Loudspeaker Maximum Recommended Amplifier Power 200 Watts Power Handling (Continuous/Peak) 100 Watts/400 Watts Impedance 8 Ohms nominal Sensitivity (2.83V/1m) 91dB Frequency Response (-3dB) 38Hz - 20kHz Crossover Frequencies 300Hz,...
Summary: Originally used this sub for an interactive sound chamber and then it found its way into my home surround sound system. The voice coil easily booms those low notes with no problems or signs of "struggle". I've never heard it bottom out. You can easily adjust the volume, freq (both number and inversion), and it even has an auto on and off. I use it with 4 PSBs and 4 base shakers.
Summary: I ordered this sub because my my original was damaged in a flood, I was upset about the flood damage and didnt realize when I ordered that this was a 12 inch speaker instead of the 10 inch I had. The 10 inch compared to this is a toy! I'm so glad I ordered this, although when I first received it, it gave me pause, because its so big. But the sound is so amazing I dont care. Movies always sounded okay with the old sub, but I hated the way music sounded.
Summary: This JBL 12" subwoofer is a fine product, and a great value when purchased through Amazon. The price was about 40% lower compared to what they were asking for it at Best Buy, all I had to do was wait a few days for it to arrive. Plus there is no additional cost for sales tax, which where I live is nearly 8%. This pushes my total savings up to 48%, nearly half price! There was no additional cost for shipping, either.
Summary: Very satisfied with my new 500-watt sub. My advice to all you home theatre audiophiles...........never purchase a new subwoofer below 400 watts and a 10 inch cone. Five hundred watts with a 12-inch amplifier cone means longevity and no required fuses. I sincerely recommend this subwoofer to everybody. The price was especially satisfying. This is a $700.00 subwoofer but purchased it (brand new) for $248.00! Amazon is my #1 online vendor.
Summary: Looks good and sounds good. Very good for the price I paid ($209.88).I would say 5 stars for that price. I do not think it could be beat for for the price. I have the JBL Venue 250 watt subwoofer also. The 500 watt one is bigger and louder. I use the 500 in front and 250 in back with a surround sound system, it sounds great. The price I paid for the JBL Venue 500 watt subwoofer ($209.88) was listed as 51% off.
