Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Solid MDF Construction: The
enclosure is constructed of high quality MDF (medium-density fiberboard), which
resists flexing and has anti-resonant qualities.
Bandpass Enclosure: The bandpass
enclosure has a front-firing slot vent and a clear Plexiglas front window. The enclosure consists
of one internal side firing 12" woofer. The woofer's basket is visible from the
front window. The woofer's cone is not visible because it is firing into the
second enclosed side chamber. The speaker
terminals are located on the back of the box. The top, bottom, back and sides of
the box are covered in black carpet. The front of the box is covered by a black
aluminum finish along with the front Plexiglas window and silver slot vent.
There is a JBL logo imprinted on front of the enclosure.
Tuned Port: The enclosure uses
one front-firing slot vent to help produce deep and loud bass
efficiently. The port is located on the front right hand side of the box. The
port is a rectangle shape and measures - Height = 12", Width = 1.5", Depth =
The enclosure is finished with quality carpeting for superior
durability. The carpet color is black.
The subwoofer enclosure uses 8 AWG binding posts to connect your amplifier to
the speaker box. The binding posts are located on the back of the box.
The enclosure houses one 12" single voice coil, 4 ohm woofer. The speaker
is a polypropylene cone-type woofer with a hi-roll rubber surround which
provides exceptional cone-edge suspension and log-throw linearity with control
and stability at the excursion limits.
Power Handling: The subwoofer
can handle up to 300 watts RMS power and 1,200 watts peak power.
LED Lighting: Four white LED
lights are installed inside of the box that are visible from the front Plexiglas
window . The power and ground screw terminals for the lights are located on the
back side of the box above the speaker terminals. You may want to install a
switch or wire the lights to your radio's remote turn on lead so the LED lights
can be turned on and off without unplugging the wires from the box.
Accessing Woofer: There is a
panel on the bottom-side of the box that can be removed to access the front of
the subwoofer. The carpeted panel is held in place by 12 screws.
Plexiglas Window: The front
Plexiglas window is held in place by 16 hex-head screws and can be removed.
