When Being SLIM Is In

The JBL MS-10SD2 SLIM subwoofer is a 10-inch (250-millimeter), high-performance car audio subwoofer. It has minimal installation depth – just 2-3/8 inches (60 millimeters). Its dual 4-ohm voice-coil design permits a variety of connection options. Its advanced components include a reinforced flat-piston polypropylene cone, progressive spider, dual-roll fabric surround and nonmagnetic, cast-aluminum frame. Power handling of 200-500 watts RMS (1,000 watts peak) makes this subwoofer an excellent choice for virtually any system configuration.

Shallow Mounting Depth

The MS-10SD2 SLIM subwoofer requires just 2-3/8 inches (60 millimeters) of installation depth, little more than the height of a credit card. This minimal installation depth vastly increases the number of places where you can install one or more this sub. Under seats, in rear-seat or trunk side panels (with custom enclosures), or behind a truck seat against a cab wall – wherever you want to put this subwoofer, it requires very thin installation depth.


Flat-Piston Polypropylene Cone

A subwoofer cone is a diaphragm of a piston that moves air. JBL engineers reconfigured a traditional conical diaphragm as flat, rigid polypropylene material that fits in the compact MS-10SD2 SLIM subwoofer chassis and has a lightweight and stiff composition. The result is an effective low-frequency diaphragm that reduces unwanted mechanical distortion under movements up to its linear-excursion (Xmax) limits.


Dual-Roll Laminated Fabric Surround

A dual-roll laminated composite surround in the MS-10SD2 SLIM subwoofer offers a low profile and tremendous UV (ultraviolet) resistance. Its polyurethane/fabric blend exerts additional restoring force on the cone at high excursion, making its low-distortion bass even better.


Progressive Spider

Like its surround, the MS-10SD2 SLIM’s progressive spider allows progressively more resistive force as the cone reaches higher excursion. It also helps to keep the voice coil centered in the magnetic gap during the delivery of the important bass notes.


High-Q, Wide-Range Sub-Bass Performance

JBL engineers went off the charts for this revolutionary high-Q design with a very low compliance (Vas) to offer extremely effective bass performance in a small space. The low, easily moving compliance of the suspension, combined with the innovative surround and progressive spider to control cone movement as excursion is increased, gives the MS-10SD2 SLIM subwoofer unique mechanical attributes that revise conventional subwoofer thinking.


Small Sealed And Vented Enclosure Volumes

The MS-10SD2 SLIM subwoofer provides amazing bass from a modest enclosure volume. We recommend just 0.5 cubic feet (14,161 cubic centimeters) for sealed designs and 1.0 cubic feet (28,321 cubic centimeters) for vented designs. Vented enclosures provide greater output than sealed enclosures given the same power, so the vented enclosure will work with smaller amplifiers.

Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
MS Slim (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.
500 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.
2 ohms
Voice Coil Diameter
Diameter of voice coil, usually measured in inches.
1.8"
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).
34 - 800 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".
74 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.
6 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
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.
Laminated Fabric
Magnet Structure
Defines the overall structure of the subwoofers magnet.
Single Stacked
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.

Ported / Vented
Optimum Sealed Box Volume
This value indicates the ideal sealed box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
0.50 cubic feet
Optimum Ported Box Volume
This value indicates the ideal ported box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
1.0 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.
2-3/8"
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"
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.

Yes

Electromechanical Parameters

Free-Air Resonance (Fs)
The free-air resonance frequency of the subwoofer, measured in Hz. At this frequency the weight of the moving parts is perfectly balanced with the subwoofers suspension system.
46.4 Hz
Equivalent Compliance (Vas)
This is the amount of air that has the same stiffness as the subwoofers suspension. The greater the rating, the lower the stiffness and larger recommended enclosure. It is measured in Liters.
2.26 liters
Total Speaker Q Value (Qts)
This is the subwoofers relative damping (Q) at the resonance frequency (Fs), including all dimensionless losses. Essentially, a high Qts value (closer to 1.0) means the subwoofer is great for sealed enclosures and a low Qts value (closer to 0) means the woofer is great in vented enclosures. A Qts of around 0.45 means the woofer will work decently in either enclosure type.

Nice Sub

May 29, 2014

I was pleasantly surprised at the depth of sound this woofer puts out. I am hearing things in the music I did not hear before with my old woofer. This is a nice product and I would recommend it.

Best Answer: The 2ohm subs will hit harder but you don't need but maybe 500 to 600 watts going into them apiece I just recently sold mine for alpines and they give a better sound but yeah the 2ohm will push better the 4 ohm will give less bass but get the internal box size spot on and I would recommend a ported box
