    This sub is super awesome and easy to install once you know how to do it! Got this on Black Friday 2017 and it’s still in good shape! Hopefully it’s on sale this year again so my husband can install a second one in my car lol

    This driver is one of the best values out there. I actually purchased them for my HT but I’m sure they’re just as good for a car. One of the highest Xmax ratings on a 12” driver in this price class. Hard to beat for the money.

    I have been in and around car audio for 24 years, JBL is a reputable company that has a great product. These subs are fantastic for someone wanting a lot of bass on a budget. Very good response and volume.

    If you heard my car you would think I had a alpine sub in the truck. I paid pennies for this and it sounds like I paid hundreds. I question this at the price I paid and now I know I got a steal of a deal. Right time right place and I'll take it

    Got this on a flash sale. Must say this thing packs a punch! Very happy with sound quality and nice tight bass. Have this paired up with alpine 500w amp And it hits. JBL does not disappoint!

    I had my first JBL speakers about 30 years ago when I was a teenager. I loved them then, and I love them now. The sound quality is still crisp and clean. And yes, the bass is still THUMPIN’!

    Have only used since middle of February 2015 and was very happy w/ the little booming box for Ipad until it just "stopped" taking a charge. Tried different outlets, cleaned the plug and still nothing. That's a very short shelf life. Plan to return it.

    I bought 2 12" JBL Subwoofers online at Bestbuy.com on Cyber Monday for $29.99 + tax each. I saved $100 a piece!!! Now my son wants them. Decision time- Dads Mustang or son's Camry? I am leaning towards my Mustang!!!

    Very powerful and solid. I've had many speakers that just stopped working. This item is the king of them all. There's nothing that you can throw at it to make it stop working. It handles the best amplifiers. Very happy customer.

    I bought these but never put them on! I decided to go with better ones so I can’t really say anything bad about these. Would be good for someone that wants a little extra bass

    Paid $30 for each sub, bought two. Paired with the JBL Club-5501 1500w amp and it knocks. Not gonna take your breathe away but sounds great. Read the spec to match box size and amp frequency.

    Good clean sound, add plenty of bass to a stock sound system with only one. Has some lower frequency flutter. Higher quality subs do not have this issue. Lot of value though, good for adding the bass a stock system is missing

    At full price I would be very very unhappy with my purchase, lets say at the sale price I was able to get the more boom for my money. Now the JBL sub its just right for my taste not to loud but not to low just blends

    Replaced a Polk DXI (or something) subwoofer, and is much better and more punchy. One 800w Sony amp pushing it, it's dynamic and has good punch for the price.

    I used this to replace an old 15" kicker in a home sub box with plate amp. The price was right to give it a try... Very tight, shakes the windows on my neighbors house. good times:)

    My friends and I recently decided to upgrade our sound systems. The punch of the sub is great, and paired with a decent amp, makes for a great compliment to bass-heavy songs!

    There nice for the price, if you just want to add a little bass to your system there perfect. If your looking to turn heads as you pass by I suggest you pass on these. But for the price you can't complain.
