Low Frequency Response

Hear the bass you've been missing with an exceptional frequency response of 35 HZ - 200 Hz. The CX Series subwoofers deliver the full range of low end response.

Reliability You Can Trust

JBL speakers are held to the same specifications as automakers and are subjected to extreme conditions that would break lesser speakers. They're frozen, baked, shaked and blasted with ultraviolet light. They're even driven at full power for days to make sure your audio investment lasts for years no matter where your travels take you.

Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
CX
Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
12"
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.
250 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.
Single
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).
25 - 2000 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".
92 dB
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.

Exceeded Expectations

July 19, 2014

The following review is for CS1214, which is a part of the bundle you are viewing.

Running two of these in a sealed box and they really surprised my how good they sound. I wasn't expecting much but they do get pretty loud and low. I'm giving them 500 watts rms to share so the power is perfect for their capability. For a budget sub they're perfect. They're 12's and they sound like 12's. I only wish they had better terminal connectors.

Great subs

April 4, 2012

The following review is for CS1214, which is a part of the bundle you are viewing.

I like these subs you don't need a huge amp to get deep and heavy bass out of them. I have them in a ported box with a Sony classD amp at 500w RMS at 1/2 gain to break them in and they slam. I like the look of these subs no chessy plastic or rubber on the magnets and cone. They have a big JBL 1000watt on them to let you know they mean business and let me tell you they do. I would recommend these for anyone.

JBL Are The Truth

May 26, 2014

The following review is for CS1214, which is a part of the bundle you are viewing.

These JBL subs are just AWSOME! I'm using them in a vintage pair of JBL L100T's. The original woofers deteriorated over time which I purchased over 30 years ago. I had them reconed once and they deteriorated again. I caught a deal on a pair of Kicker Comps which I purchased and caught a deal, buy one and one free for $99. The where ok but could not hit the low bass I was looking for. I'm pushing these speakers with vintage NAD 2155 in 4 ohm mode. I then put a pair of Alpine Type R in the Jbl cabinets. They hit pretty good which I thought was great until I purchased these JBL-CS1214. Man do these subs sound like the original woofers. These bad boys slam. I mean they really slam and the low bass I was looking for was there. I ended up playing every cd in my collection all over again and even the NewSchool music with all the strong low bass was a joy to listen to. I sold the Kickers and the Alpines and I will buy another pair of these JBL'S to put in my pickup truck when I restore it. Trust me when I say that these JBL'S are the truth.

I have installed these in 4425 studio speaker cabinets, they of course are not meant for that environment tons of low end , at an awesome price. They look awesome, Pushing them with a Kenwood home stereo from the early 90's running 100 w RMS and they could easily take double that.

Bought one 12 inch cs1214 for my truck a long time ago, went through about 20 different set ups/systmes in my truck, and just recently i bought 4 12 inch cs1214's my trunk in my BMW. It bangs so hard! i love it, im so happy i came back to JBL. it definelty is a lot better than kicker, kenwood, jl, lanzar, planet audio, id recommend JBL to anyone who wants the best bass for their money, i have the best car system anyones ever heard around town, i shake the cars next to me at lights and im only giving 1 cubic foot of air for each subwoofer. the best bang for your buck

JBL all the way

I put these into an old set of home stereo tower speakers to replace some blown woofers. I have another pair of the exact same speakers with MTX Thunder woofers in them. The JBL's hit harder and clearer.

The money I spent on these was well worth it to revive these old speakers for my shop!

These things knock!

September 21, 2015

The following review is for CS1214, which is a part of the bundle you are viewing.

First, I haven't had a system in a vehicle in years. I ordered one 12" speaker and a sealed single truck box for my '04 single cab F-150. As I predicted, it wasn't enough for me, as I used to have good systems back in the 90's when I was a teenager. I ordered another JBL 12" 1000 watt and a dual 12" sealed truck box. I have a Boss monoblock amp that pushes 250 RMS at 4 ohm and 1100 watts at 2 ohm. I have the speakers wired in a series to operate at 2 ohm (More watts and amp has an easier time pushing power). I wasn't impressed at first. Once I tuned the gain and sensitivity on the amp just right, these speakers came to life! It has only been three days since I installed these. They aren't close to being broken in yet and these things pound! They hit on all frequencies. Low, medium, and high! They definitely exceeded my expectations. The speakers are in a sealed box too! They will sound even better in a vented box or band pass box. My poor truck is probably going to rattle apart. Seriously though. I had some good systems back in the day. JL Audio, Kenwood HQ's, IMPP Pioneer, Cerwin Vega, MTX, etc. etc. etc., and these speakers bring back the old days, without breaking the bank. I recommend these. I might end up buying two more and fabricating my own ported box and putting all four in the bed with a cover on. That should upset the neighbors!

THESE SUBS SLAP!

October 16, 2018

I installed a pair of these in my car and it changed the way I hear music forever. The bass hits harder than my momma when I forged her signature on my report card. I use a NVX BDA750 Amplifier and it runs rather smoothly. It really brings out the lows. All my trap music bumps even my husband's jazz albums sound good in my car. And I hate Jazz. I highly recomend them.

Great speaker at a great price.
Sounds good, deep and considerably tight for a 12, I use it in a ported box in the back Volvo wagon..so it does its thing nicely. Good for an amp that's not really a power plant as well as a large amp due to the lower rms required and high max.
They need to bring back the 10" version for more articulation of rock and pop music.

I have two of these in a sealed box around 1 cubic foot each. They sound very good for the money. They hit real low and hard in my large SUV. The upper bass is a little twangy so I had to cross it over no higher than 80Hz at 18db per octive. Once I did that, they work great. Your results may and will vary. I used 12 Gauge wire soldered to the terminals and shrink tubed since they're the old style push-on type.

I got this sub for around $40. I wasn't expecting much out of it, just a cheap replacment for my old one until I had the money for something higher end. I have been very surprised to find the sound of this isn't bad at all. It doesn't hit quite as low as I'd like, but other than that it's really good. I would recommend this sub to anyone on a budget or getting their first sub.
