Amplifier Specifications

Amplifier Class

An amplifier increases the power of the signal being fed to it by taking energy from its power supply and matching the signal but increasing its amplitude. Amplifiers use many different methods for converting these electrical signals and have been categorized into classes.

Class A/B: Greater than 50% of the input signal is amplified while the other percentage is “off”. These amplifiers have a small amount of current flowing through the output transistors all the time which almost eliminates crossover distortion. Class A/B has great sound quality but is not as efficient as class D. These amps are most commonly used to drive speakers.

Class D: Also known as switching amplifiers, class D amps have output transistors that are completely turned “on” or “off”. This means that when the transistors are on, there is almost no voltage across them but when they are off there is significant voltage but no current flowing through it which makes these amplifiers very efficient at the cost of sound quality. These amps are most commonly used to drive subwoofers.

Other Classes: You may see classes such as GH, bD, X, FD, etc. by some manufactures. These amplifiers tend to be either class A/B, D or a hybrid of the two but with improvements to their designs that can make them more efficient or offer better sound quality.

D
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.

450 watts
Total RMS Power Output
Total RMS power is measured by multiplying RMS power per channel by the number of channels, and is calculated at the lowest level of operating impedance.

RMS power is the amount of continuous power, measured in watts, that an amplifier produces is called RMS power. The higher the RMS figure, the louder and cleaner your music sounds.

The RMS output figure is much more accurate than the peak rating when comparing products.

300 watts
Maximum Input Gauge Size
This is the largest gauge wire that will fit into the power and ground terminals of this device. The lower the gauge number, the thicker the wire is. For example, a 4 gauge wire is thicker than an 8 gauge wire and thus has higher current carrying capacity. Always do your best to get this size wire to reduce the risk of damage to your components.
8 AWG
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 - with included adapter
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.

Low-Pass (LP)
Low-Pass Crossover Frequency
The low-pass crossover frequency is typically used for subwoofers. It can be a fixed crossover point or a variable crossover range. A variable low-pass crossover allows you to select a specific crossover point which allows frequencies below the set crossover point to pass, while making frequencies above the set point gently or harshly roll-off, depending on the steepness of the slope.

The steepness of the roll-off slope is measured in dB/octave and refers to the rate of attenuation (lowering of volume) outside their pass bands.

50 - 120 Hz
Bass Boost
The objective of the bass boost is to get more kick out of your subwoofer. It is a circuit that emphasizes the lower frequencies at a given point. The bass boost should always be set first before setting the gain. This feature is known for destroying subwoofers and is commonly used incorrectly, so be cautious.
0 - 12 dB
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.
No
Fuse Rating
The amperage and the number of fuse(s) an amp requires.
30A x 1 

Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
10"
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.
300 watts
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.
450 watts
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.
Butyl Rubber
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
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.

Took the recommendation and plunge!

November 19, 2015

I have bought from Sonic for a lot of years and was on the fence on this item. They originally emailed me it and i thought about, but wanted to call them so I did. JBL is a famous brand, but the thing that sold me was everything was the JBL top level series and that it was an extra discount until they ran out. Double win. Anyhow, I have had it installed for a couple weeks and it really hits all the lows and does not really miss a beat. When I say does not miss a beat, I am comparing it to some Sennheiser Momentum headphones that I have that are my reference.

Extremely pleased in my purchase. I have always loved car audio and just bought a new car and wanted a little extra base. Installed it and was blown away with how powerful it was. Great bang for the buck JBL did a great job with this unit. I bought this because JBL been in the audio business for as long as I can remember and I'm 40. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a quick fix.

great value

February 8, 2016

Sonic had this for a great price. i used to have the infiniy basslink, which broke down. This is much more powerful. Due to the unexpected power, I've had to order a small amp for my other 4 speakers so they can keep up with the sub. Installed it on a jeep wrangler JK.

Not too bad.

January 24, 2016

Love the woofer and the compact size. The only thing I didn't like was it came with no installation kit. It doesn't require too much to hook up so I went to the local Home Fepot and got everything I needed. Cheaper than buying an amp kit for $30+.

Works well.

May 16, 2016

For those of us who just want some deep clean bass and not to blow the car away, this is a great unit. Small, nice looking and works quite well. Fairly powerful as well, but basshead addicts should pass as one 10" woofer isn't enough for them. Everybody else though should be happy.

BassProSQ Review

April 29, 2016

Ordered this unit with the install kit. Installed fine and works great. Would recommend ordering a remote bass volume control as well as different sources (FM stations & CD) have quite different amounts of bass.

Plenty of decent bass for me, units looks nice and is compact as well. Don't know about its long term durability, but JBL is pretty respected as a decent company. I do recommend this for most, unless you want massive amounts of bass.

ok subwoofer

March 27, 2016

i bought this subwoofer thinking it will create good amount of bass being mage by jbl but i have to say i am disappointed. I bought this in November last year but installed it in my 2015 mustang conv. in February. It generates ok amount of bass but not enough and i am not a basshead. I got it installed professionally and used nvx ofc wires. I will say spend a little more and get jbl w3 or something of that pedigree.

Great product

March 22, 2016

I ordered one of these boxes as i didn't want anything OTT and to say i was pleasantly surprised is an understatement. This thing definitely kicks in addition to this i would like to point out the first one i purchased had some issues. The customer service/support team were very professional in handling the situation and honestly kept it stress free. I did have to pay shipping how ever for a manufacture defect which was a nuisance, but with that said the situation was resolved with out any hassle. I went for the same box again as i was happy with the way it looked (Compact) and preformed in the back of my BMW E90.
So thank you team and Sonic electrix.

I chose it because of the compact form and the efficiency it must have since it only draws 30A. It has to be a great solution as far as quality and sound. Also at this great price you can't go wrong with top quality from jbl for a all in one solution if you need extra bass.
