Amplifier Power Specifications

RMS Power @ 4 ohms
The RMS power rating is the measure of continuous power that an amplifier can output, or a speaker can handle. It is the most accurate depiction of real, continuous power that the industry has so far. If the final impedance of your speaker(s) or subwoofer(s) equals 4 ohms, this is how much power this amplifier will supply at that ohm level. The higher the RMS wattage, the more clean and loud your music will sound. The 5th channel on these particular amplifiers are usually dedicated for driving subwoofers.
RMS Power @ 2 ohms
The RMS power rating is the measure of continuous power that an amplifier can output, or a speaker can handle. It is the most accurate depiction of real, continuous power that the industry has so far. If the final impedance of your speaker(s) or subwoofer(s) equals 2 ohms, this is how much power this amplifier will supply at that ohm level. The higher the RMS wattage, the more clean and loud your music will sound. The 5th channel on these particular amplifiers are usually dedicated for driving subwoofers.
RMS Power @ 1 ohm
The RMS power rating is the measure of continuous power that an amplifier can output, or a speaker can handle. It is the most accurate depiction of real, continuous power that the industry has so far. If the final impedance of your speaker(s) or subwoofer(s) equals 1 ohms, this is how much power this amplifier will supply at that ohm level. The higher the RMS wattage, the more clean and loud your music will sound. The 5th channel on these particular amplifiers are usually dedicated for driving subwoofers.
Peak Power Output
This form of power rating refers to the maximum amount of power an electronic device can handle or output in an instant without damage. Often times this maximum is achieved during a brief musical burst, such as a drum accent or low bass hit. Some manufacturers display peak power ratings on the face of their products to increase the appeal to consumers. The RMS power rating is more accurate, and we recommend using it for product comparison. This is the peak power output for the amplifier's 5th channel.

Amplifier Specifications

Total Peak Power Output
The total peak power output is measured as the wattage per channel multiplied by the number of channels, and is calculated at the lowest level of operating impedance.

It is measured during a brief musical burst, such as a sudden drum accent. Some manufacturers display peak power ratings on the face of their products to increase the appeal.

The RMS power rating is more accurate, and we recommend using it for product comparison.

120 watts
Speaker Level Inputs
Speaker level inputs are commonly referred to as high-level inputs and vice versa. This input type allows you to get your audio signal directly from the speaker wire in your vehicle, instead of using RCA cables. The advantage of this is factory integration, as most stock radios do not have RCA outputs to run amplifiers.
Yes
Preamp Outputs
Many amplifiers are equipped with RCA preamp outputs which pass the original music signal from the source to additional amplifiers. This is known as daisy chaining because the source connects to the first amp, and the first amp connects to the second amp, etc. The advantage to daisy chaining is you only need one 2-channel RCA cable to transfer the signal from the head-unit to the amplifier, and then one additional cable for each amp being daisy chained.
No
Built-in Crossover

A crossover is a type of filtering system that permits only certain frequencies to play. A Low-Pass (LP) crossover allows only frequencies below its setting to get through which is good in the case of some subwoofers. A High-Pass(HP) filter allows frequencies above its setting to pass through, this is normally used on speakers.

When a crossover is set to FULL it means no filtering is added and the full frequency spectrum is allowed through the amplifier. Filtering is important because feeding a speaker frequencies it cannot reproduce effectively creates distortion.

None
Bass/Gain Remote
If the amp comes with a bass/gain remote you will be able to control the level of your bass from your dashboard. Typically bass remotes also include a 16-20 ft. wire for installation.
Yes
Fan Cooled
A great feature to have if an amp generates a large amount of heat. Cooling fans can help regulate the temperature to prevent the amp from overheating (burning).
No
CEA-2006 Compliant
Amplifiers that have been tested to meet specific standards. When a car amplifier meets these standards, you can be sure that it will be able to produce the amount of power specified by the official CEA-2006 rating. Usually, these rating consist of the following items:
  • RMS Power
  • Signal-to-Noise Ratio

This rating applies to both external car amplifiers, as well as the amplifiers inside of in-dash stereos.

Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
6.5"
Total Peak Power Handling
This is the Total Peak Power handling of all the subwoofers included in the package or enclosure.

If the loaded enclosure or amplifier and subwoofer package includes more than a single subwoofer, then this is the total peak power handling for all of the subs combined.

Peak power handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle during a brief musical burst. The RMS power range figure is a much more reliable rating for determining the speaker's power requirements.
120 watts
Sensitivity
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
 
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
88 dB
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
20 - 200 Hz
Subwoofer Design
This is the design of the subwoofer or the opening of the subwoofer enclosure. Each design has it's own benefits, whether it is a square, circle, or oval.

Round/Circle: This is the typical and common subwoofer design. They have a round cone and are a circle in design.

Square: These woofers are able to achieve a greater cone area in a smaller space. Because of the greater surface area, some square subwoofers will be louder than a round subwoofer of the same size.

Enclosure Specifications

Box Type
Represents the style of the enclosure. Be sure to purchase the appropriate enclosure type and internal volume that will be compatible with your subwoofer's recommendation.

Sealed - Sealed boxes are those that have no holes or vents in it. The only hole in a sealed box is where the subwoofer is installed. Smaller sealed boxes require more power than a larger sealed box. They provide a tight, accurate bass, while the larger sealed enclosures provide a "boomier" and louder bass.

Ported / Vented - Ported/Vented Enclosures provide an even boomier, louder bass, but less accurate then a small, sealed box. Ported enclosures typically require more airspace per sub and also less power output from an amplifier to perform correctly.

Bandpass - Bandpass enclosures make subwoofers perform efficiently, but loose. The bass is not as "boomy" as a ported enclosure nor as punchy as a sealed enclosure. Bandpass enclosures work well with lower to mid-level subwoofers.
Sealed
Number of Subs/Speakers
This value represents the number of speakers or subwoofers that the enclosure accommodates.
1
Box Style/Shape
The box style or shape refers to the actual shape of the box. Square and rectangular boxes are straight-edged boxes on all sides, whereas hatchback and truck style enclosures feature an angled front or back design that allows for installation in places short on depth such as single cab pickup trucks. You can also use such enclosures in hatchback cars or other vehicles where space is a premium. Tube and cylinder shaped boxes were made popular by Bazooka and are a great option for those looking for a nice amount of bass without sacrificing lots of space. They may even fit in locations that slim truck boxes cannot fit in. If the enclosure is vehicle specific, we encourage you to read the product description to find out which vehicles the enclosure is made for.
Square/Rectangle
Height
The height of the item, measured from top to bottom, in inches.
2-7/16"
Width
The width of the item from left to right (side-to-side) measured in inches.
11-7/16"
Depth
The front-to-rear depth of the item, in inches. If the item is angled or slanted, this value is the bottom measurement.
7-7/8"
Number of Terminals
The number of terminals the enclosure has. Each terminal represents 1 positive and 1 negative.
1
Box Exterior Color
The color of the enclosure's exterior/outer finish.
Gray
Box Finish
The material used on the outside of the box. Most boxes are carpeted to prevent exterior scratches; however vinyl is popular as it can often be color-matched to a near exact look of your leather factory interior.
Paint
Final Wired Impedance
This is the final impedance of the system as the amplifier will see it. If the final impedance is for two sets, it means that the enclosure has two sets of terminals at the listed impedance.

Just The Extra Bottom I Needed For My 96 Astro Van!

October 8, 2009

Was looking for some extra bass for my "Dallas Cowboy" colored van. The JVC CS-BB2 is just what I needed. I mounted it under my back seat. Its completely hidden, and the sound is great! Thank you for a great product!

Perfect for those who lack space and need some little boost of bass

May 16, 2009

bought this half a year ago from SonicElectronix. the price was absolutely fair, $99.00. i drive a tiny convertible and really needed some bass. i must say i didnt think 6 inches will do the job, but surprisingly i got exactly what i needed, i even set the bass volume to 50%.

what made me buy it is the design and JVC, which i really like as a brand. it's also, i think, the slimmest bass there is. it fits underneath the seat like magic.

very easy to use, very easy to install. bottoms up!

Very good value

April 10, 2008

I installed this in my parent's sedan and it gives a lot of kick for the size. It's fairly compact, but if your car can fit it, I would suggest the Infiniti Baselink. I decided to take the plunge and replace this unit with one and undeniably the bass is deeper. At over twice the price, it may break the bank, and this JVC unit deserves a 10 for value. Overall, if you have a sports car and are frugal on space, go for this unit.

Bass in a small place.

May 17, 2010

Have a small car that needed some help with the bass. This unit fit the bill. It's not move the windows bass, but it does a nice job of filling in what is needed to allow for full sound enjoyment. Plus you can control the off-on and separate volume of the unit. I would buy it again and from this seller.

April 29, 2010

I purchased this product 6 mos. ago and am very pleased with it. I was looking for a powered sub for my Toyota Tundra pickup and just wanted a modest boost in bass to balance the sound as bass was barely audible with previous setup. The JVC unit definitely fit the bill and made the bass needed to make the songs sound the way they were meant to and not "treble heavy" as before. My wife even asked what I did and thought I spent much more money to make such a huge difference in stereo sound. To say she is no audiophile is an understatement and the fact she was impressed is a real compliment. I really believe she uses the vehicle more frequently as a result. Installation was very straight forward and took less than two hours. If someone is looking for solid bass and doesn't have a lot of room/money for a more elaborate setup, this a definitely a great option. No problems at all to date.

JVC CS-BB2-RB

April 5, 2010

It is very small and compact. Not the best bass sound but sounds decent for in lower volume to mid volume not for loud volume as then it really goes down hill from there. Bottom line good product but don't have high hopes of heavy or good bass sound as this subwoofer is only 6.5"! and was only meant to fill in the missing bass for a oem system but if you have a 2 seater car it great for under the seat to get a little thump! For the price i would pay a little bit more for an 8" subwoofer as i have now if you want a higher volume capability and a better bass sound.

I recommend this Product to anybody that wants to add a little responsive sound to a vehicle that does not have enough space. I bought this JVC CS-BB2 for a 1995 f-150 placed it under the front seat. It added the bass i was looking for without digging into my wallet.

I'm happy with it

November 9, 2009

I put the cs-bb2 in my Pontiac Solstice. I just needed a little bass added to the sound and the only place to mount was behind the seat so it had to be very thin. This model is perfect for that. It's not going to give you window rattling bass or "thumping" lows but if you need a little more bass and have a small place to mount...this is perfect.

Great compact unit

April 17, 2009

This is a great unit. Very compact, fits under or behind any seat. I installed it on my Discovery LR3 to supplement the existing audio and it sounds awesome. Great audio quality and it's a install and forget type of unit. I simply hooked it up, without using the remote and forgot about it.
The unit comes with all cables and very good instructions on how to hook it up to the car electrical and audio system. Recommended.

I was considering a Bass Cannon when I stumbled on this. I put it in my '74 Super Beetle and I'm amazed at the big sound I get and it takes up so little space. I like it so much I got a second one for my daily driver, an '06 Mazda MX5. It should be small enough to fit under or behind a seat but I haven't got around to installing that one yet. I guess I'd better get at it soon.

For what it is, it's OK

January 27, 2010

I installed this in a friend's Jeep Wrangler, where it was the only sub I could find that would fit between the dash console and the shifter. It's not loud, it doesn't 'thump', it's not very musical...but, for what it is intended to do, it does OK. Wouldn't put it in my own vehicle, but it does what he wanted, which was to add some bass to his 4X6 Polks in the dash

Excellent addition for adding the lows back into a convertible

December 4, 2009

I will start out stating that I was not looking for "bump", but rather to restore the lows that road noise would drown out while driving my LeBaron convertible. This powered, low profile sub does that perfectly. The lows are back, and fill in the music beautifully. The low profile aspect of the sub allows for some very creative placement as well. Although it is designed to be placed under a front seat, the space under my driver's seat is blocked with power adjustment gear, and the passenger is where my external HD & AC converter stays (head unit accepts a USB drive, so the combo above means 300 GB of continuous music). This meant that I needed to find another place for it. The small size allowed me to place it on the center hump, UNDER the dash. This lets it fire vertically and bounce the base off the windshield to the listeners. Makes for an amazing sound, and uses otherwise unused space. Highly recommended! It's a shame JVC stopped production of this.

Great Fit

October 12, 2009

Purchased this unit for my 1983 Alfa Romeo Spider to place behind the seats under the shelf - excellent fit and enhances my JVC HD receiver and eclipse speakers very well giving me just enough bass to complement my system. The wired remote allows me to adjust the bass for the type of music - I mostly listen to jazz and mix/alternative so it provides the right amount of depth. The compact size allowed it to be hidden from view and not take up valuable trunk space.

If you need the thumping hip hop kinda bass then get the Infinity Basslink instead and mount it in the trunk - my son did that in his '86 Spider and it is quite impressive....

Great under the seats!

October 23, 2009

Bought one and put it under the passenger seat of my 07 Forester. Liked it so much that I had to get another one for the driver's side. It's compact and hides really well under the seats, yet still manages to produce a nice bass that you can feel. Nothing car rattling, but that's not what I'm looking for. I bought the refurbished one and so far so good.
