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

a great driver
i have owned a set of these subs for a week now and they sound great. clear and loud. there replacements for my infinity dual vc 10", and i think these are a beater built driver. i repair and run live sound systems and jbl is one of the big brand so you know there stuff is gonna be good
Great budget subwoofer
I bought a pair of these for a friend. I installed them the recommended sealed enclosure (.75cuft ea) and they were powered with a 320wrms amplifier. Note that the cut out dimensions in the manual is not correct, its actually a bit smaller.
These subs sound very smooth and can get decently loud. This model excels with jazz, light rock, and adult contemporary music (very smooth) but bottoms out in bass heavy types of music.
Overall, my friend likes the subwoofers a lot, they suit his taste of music and for the money they are definitely worth the money.
On a side note, these subs are pretty cheap looking, not that it has anything to do with performance.
Wonderful budget subwoofer, Very Pleased!
I became a car audio junkie relatively recently and while requesting advice on a good budget setup through mainly online car audio formus, I came a across this product. I purchased two of the GT5-10's and a Rockford Fosgate R500-1 Amp. The RMS on these are 275 and the Birthsheet Rated RMS on the R500-1 was 537 at 2 ohms so after wiring the subs parallel, I ended up with an almost perfect match-up. I originally planned to build a custom ported box but due to my lack of tools and carpentry knowledge, I went with a pre-built ported box with 1.2 cubic ft. of airspace per chamber. Install was easy and they look great! They handle the 270ish watts like a pro and sounds awesome! Would definitely recommend!
Great sub for the money!
I have 1 10" in a sealed enclosure in my crew cab pickup. It sounds great & hits hard!
The product is very good for handling the power . Only problem i had was the gasket around the cone came unglued . It was a easy fix i would purchase again
Best boom for the buck
At $90 this sub pounds like subs twice the cost. I have two of these in 3.2 cubes tuned to 30hz with 31.5 sq inches of port area. Plays stupid flat and can handle more than what it's rated, at least mechanically. I have them on about 750wrms and did get them a little stinky once but never bottomed out even on stupid low notes like the new 2 Chainz CD or your pick of any Decaf track.
Long time owner. No regrets!
I've had two of these subs since August 2009. I kid you not. These subs have been kicking just as hard as the day I bought them after over 6 years of abuse. The rubber surrounds are still flawless and undamaged by use, weather, and all the random junk that gets thrown in my trunk (skimboard, suitcases, guitars, groceries, etc.) I bought mine almost as soon as sonic had them on their website when the price was just like 45 bucks (like it is now as of December 2015) then the price went up to 99 bucks. These subs are worth it for 100 bucks, easily. But right now, at just 45 bucks, you cannot pass these up if you want reliable, good sounding, hard hitting subs. But just a word of caution, put these subs in a slightly larger enclosure than JBL recommends. They do need a little bit more room to fully realize their potential. I personally have mine in a dual ported enclosure (unfortunately, I can't remember the exact cubic footage. Sorry! it was 6 years ago). But these subs LOVE ported enclosures. The ten inch size keeps them accurate but putting them in a slightly larger ported enclosure allows them to hit the deepest of bass notes. Most of the time you have to choose between depth or accuracy. With these subs, you truly get the best of both worlds.
Sweet equipment for the right prices
Excellent product and price I have not installed it yet in to one of my vehicles thank you
Great for small cars
I purchased two of these for my 69 Camaro. I must say, I was not expecting these subs to preform so well on so little power. I would recommend these for anyone who is looking for great sound quality and punchy bass.
JBL GT5-10 = Best bang for the buck!
First it had fast free shipping and arrived on time. Great care is needed to get the most out of this subwoofer. The first thing that you will notice when you take it out of the box. Is how stiff this subwoofer is. A low and slow breakin is a must before installing it in your vehicle. Because you risk ripping the spider right next to the voice coil. Do not crank this subwoofer to its max staght out of the box! This subwoofer is rated 250 watts rms and 1000 watts max @ 4 ohm. Not 275 rms and 1100 like the box says. A slightly more powerful amplifier would be ok. That gives you room to properly a just the gains without distortion and clipping. It is a single 4 ohm voice coil. It doesn't have push terminals. As far as sound goes, it has fast deep punchy bass. Sounds great in sealed, ported and bandpass enclosures. It has been voted the best price on the web. I will have to say for its price rang. It is totally worth it. So, if you are on a very tight budget like I was. I recommend this subwoofer.
