Big Bass

For anyone who likes to crank it up in the car, the JBL® high-output GT5-10D subwoofer is the real deal. The JBL GT5-10D subwoofer features dual 4-ohm voice coils and a vented motor structure, and offers 1100 watts of peak power handling. The GT5-10D also features JBL’s newest design, combining classic elements with modern ones.

All-New Design

The GT5-10D follows the design of the more-expensive JBL subwoofers, combining classic elements with modern ones.


Significant Power Handling Capabilities

The GT5-10D handles 275W/1100W (RMS/Peak) power and offers nearly 20 percent higher Xmax than many competitors.

Tips for Installing the your subwoofer


Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
GT5 (JBL)
Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
10"
Peak Power Handling
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. The Peak power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
1000 watts
RMS Power Handling
The RMS power is the amount of power the speaker requires to operate safely and properly. RMS Power Handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle on a continuous basis. We recommend powering your speakers or subwoofer with 80%-120% of its recommended RMS rating. The RMS power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
275 watts
Voice Coil(s)
Dual voice coil subs have more wiring flexibility than single voice coils subs; however, single voice coil subwoofers provide easier hookup options for wiring multiple subwoofers in parallel or series. You may also run a dual voice coil (DVC) sub in parallel, series, or combination. A quad voice coil has four voice coils and is equal to two dual voice coil subwoofers as far as wiring goes.
Dual
Impedance (Per Voice Coil)
The load value (in ohms) that the speakers present to the amplifier per voice coil - the amount of resistance to the current flow. This is a key specification as subs wired in parallel or low impedances can create problems with your amplifier and potentially void all warranties. We encourage you to ask our support department prior to purchase if you do not understand which impedance level will suit your application best.
4 ohms
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).
30 - 500 Hz
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".
91 dB
Xmax (millimeters)
Typically measured in millimeters, the Xmax value is the measure of a speaker cone's maximum excursion in one direction while maintaining a linear behavior.
14.2 mm
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.

Round / Circle
Main Cone Color
This is the color of the speaker's or subwoofer's cone.
Black
Silver
Woofer Composition
Lightweight woofer cone materials are essential for efficient operation. Poly cones produce exceptional sound and are sturdy against various changes in temperature. Paper cones are very efficient, and when treated for moisture resistance, will perform at a high level. Poly refers to polypropylene, which is thermoplastic or fibers that are polymers of propylene. IMPP refers to injection molded polypropylene, a commonly used process and material in speakers.
Polypropylene
Woofer Surround
A speakers surround is part of the suspension system. The surround protects the cone and prevents it from being displaced as it flexes out from the basket. It is usually made of a durable material like treated foam or rubber in order to withstand the strenuous job of producing bass frequencies.
Rubber
Subwoofer Grille
Most subwoofers are able to accommodate a universal grille; however, some subs include a grille and others have a specific, optional grille available for purchase separately. If "yes", then the subwoofer includes a grille. If "optional (sold separately)" the matching grille will need to be purchased in addition to the sub.
No
Re-Cone Kit Available
Some higher end subwoofers have replaceable cone assemblies. In case of a blown woofer, a recone kit allows for a simple replacement, as opposed to purchasing an entire new subwoofer.
No

Recommended Enclosure Specifications

Recommended Enclosure Type
This is the recommended type of enclosure that the subwoofer should be installed into. Some subwoofers are specially designed for particular enclosures.

Sealed: These enclosures completely enclose the air inside the box. These boxes produce a tight bass.

Ported/Vented: These enclosures have a slot of air to escape from the box. The result is a sound that has more "boom".

Bandpass: These are a combination of both sealed and ported enclosures. They can be very efficient, but require tuning for the best response.

Bandpass
Ported / Vented
Sealed
Minimum Sealed Box Volume
This value indicates the minimum sealed box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
.75 cubic feet
Maximum Sealed Box Volume
This value indicates the maximum sealed box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
.75 cubic feet
Minimum Ported Box Volume
This value indicates the minimum ported box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
1.25 cubic feet
Maximum Ported Box Volume
This value indicates the maximum ported box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
1.25 cubic feet
Top-Mount Depth
The depth when installed on top of the mounting surface. Measured from the bottom of the speaker's magnet to the bottom of the mounting holes on the rim of the speaker.
5-15/16"
Cutout Diameter
The actual diameter of the hole you will need to cut out if you are creating a new mounting location for this speaker, or if you are mounting a subwoofer in a box.
9-3/16"
Shallow Mount Installation
This means that the subwoofer/speaker is designed to be installed in areas that do not have a lot of space. Shallow mount subwoofers are typically found under a seat or behind the seat in some trucks.

Shallow mount speakers will typically have a mounting depth of 2" or less, while shallow mount subwoofers will typically have a mounting depth of 3" or less.

Serious contender

August 11, 2010

This sub is the ultimate in performance. It gives you fat bass and serious lows down to it's Fs of 31 Hz. High quality sub, good surround, large magnet, and nicely built for producing bass notes. does not require much of a big box but you'll be surprised with the output that you get from this sub.

Wow is this a ten, dam i have had some sub's in the pass but this little guy isn't so little in sound. My friend thought i had 2 12s and i said nope your wrong. Just remember the right tuning, a good clean amp, with low THD makes a world of a difference.

Killer Subs!

October 31, 2011

These are fantastic subs. I have two in separate boxes hooked to a Polk 5 channel amp with 500 watts going to them at 2 ohms. They are tight and clean. I highly recommend them to anyone buying a sub.

Wide range of notes

August 10, 2015

Biggest plus is how wide and the range all jbl subs hit. Also jbl in my opinion get very loud. Not the best sub ever heard but for a budget it's not bad so this is for the everyday listener who's more on the musical side that listens to a lot of music genres

JBL GT5-10D

December 31, 2015

They are in parity with the JL Audio 10w08s.
Except they offer just a bit more power handling for the price.
Less distortion for sure. For the average person upgrading.
I also use x6 JBL GTO-1514Ds that Not only beat down the entire neighborhood of wannabee's it also prompted me on this purchase these subs to replace the vintage JL Audios.

Best Answer: Hi Mark,

Unfortunately, that isn't a very good match. You can bridge the amp while wiring the sub in SERIES to an 8ohm load, but you will likely only get ~100w RMS. The other option is NOT bridging the amp, and only using ONE channel, implying that you wire the sub in PARALLEL to a 2ohm load, but that gets you an even worse ~85w RMS.

The sub is asking for at least ~150w RMS to run well, so we suggest upgrading to a Monoblock providing 150 - 275 watts RMS @ 2ohms. Give our sales team a call if you need help.

Just purchased this subwoofer. Will 400 watts RMS hurt it?
A shopper on Apr 28, 2016
Best Answer: I run a Rockford Fostgate 300-watt class D monoblock on mine at about 3/4 volume and it does fine. You could probably run the 400-watt without an issue as long as you don't run it all the way up. You want to break it in at about 1/2-3/4 recommended power for about 20-30 hours of play (about 2-3 weeks) before you crank it up to break it in. I'm probably pushing about 250-watts to mine at high volumes and it sounds amazing. I'd say give it a shot. Break it in first, then crank it to where you want to listen to it, adjust your gain and HPF/LPF's and see what it sounds like. If it's not muddy and seems to be handling it, leave it. If not, turn it down. Trial and error. :)
