About the JBL BassPro Hub

Bass that fits in your trunk

Modern music really needs a good subwoofer to convey all of its power. But as cars become smaller, it becomes more difficult to find the space for the bass you need. JBL steps up with a clever solution in the BassPro Hub, a powered subwoofer that mounts over the hub of your spare tire to give you maximum bass and maximum space savings.

Bass that fits in your trunk

Modern music really needs a good subwoofer to convey all of its power. But as cars become smaller, it becomes more difficult to find the space for the bass you need. JBL steps up with a clever solution in the BassPro Hub, a powered subwoofer that mounts over the hub of your spare tire to give you maximum bass and maximum space savings.

Small size, big features

The BassPro Hub features a 11" subwoofer with a tough fiberglass cone and rubber surround that'll hold up at high volumes. The 200-watt Class D amplifier is specially designed to complement the sub. Its line-level and speaker-level inputs make the BassHub Pro compatible with any car audio system. The system also includes a wired remote with controls for sub level, crossover frequency, phase switching, and bass EQ, so you can make adjustments from the front seat. The tough plastic enclosure protects the system from your cargo while taking up very little space.

A plug-in wiring harness makes removing the sub to access the spare tire a simple task. To connect the BassPro Hub to your vehicle's electrical system, Crutchfield recommends a EFX or Crutchfield 10-gauge wiring kit; when purchased with the BassPro Hub, we'll throw in a package of Posi-twist solderless wire connectors for no extra charge.

Installation Note: You'll need to turn your spare tire upside down to install this sub.

Its perfect in the sense that the size and form factor are second to none. It has a built in amp so its very simple to work with. BUT...No real low end. Anything under 60hz is almost inaudible. Maybe its my factory head unit but even my DSP didnt help. It hits hard for anything other than low low bass. I wouldn't buy it again. I previously had a JL W6 w/ported enclosure so maybe Im bias.

A lot more bass than I was expecting and my wife is happy she gets to keep all of her trunk space. Installed in a 2014 Honda Civic Si. Installation was simple as I tied into the rear speakers on her car for the input. Puts out a lot of bass for a small sub

Very surprising sound coming from this unit. I paired it with the MTX Pro Form and together they get the job done very efficiently without using valuable trunk space.

Pros: Great sound from an inconspicuous unit.

Cons: None so far.

Perfect fit into a 2009 Altima Sedan

Kirk from Newington, CT on 4/27/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

My son bought this as a trade for my (2) Alpine Type R's and Alpine mono block. This fit perfect into the spare tire (donut) well of my 2009 Altima sedan. Only modification I had to do was shorten the supplied fastener (was too long) and wired it up. The rest of the system is aftermarket, including JBL speakers in all four doors (components in the front and dash). I am a long time JBL user, I own a DJ company and use JBL pro speakers. This unit is amazing, even under the board and carpet. Got my trunk back! This is a great buy!

Pros: Solid build, flexible controls for fine tuning. Got my trunk back, very impressed!

Cons: Could use a little more power, but for what's in it, should be fine!

Awesome bass! Love it

Kristi from Atlanta, GA on 2/17/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Amazing bass unit! I have an Acural ILX with the upgraded ELS system and was unhappy with the bass in the car. I tried replacing the factory 8" sub but the rattle was bad; so the guys at the audio shop suggested this JBL BassPro Hub 11". I AM 100% HAPPY WITH THIS UNIT. The bass output is amazing. I am surprised just how much bass this smaller unit provides. Even my husband was surprised. The main reason I opted for this product was the fact that it is concealed in the spare tire area. My car is already small, so I couldn't afford to lose any trunk space. The sound is phenomenal. I definitely recommend.

Pros: Concealed placement, great bass, easy to adjust

Cons: None!

Bass! in an XKR Jaguar coupe

jesse from Chatsworth, CA on 12/7/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I love my cat but it really needed help in the low end bass category so i replaced the original 8 inch sub in the rear deck with an infinity REF 1000S shallow mount then found the JBL Basspro Hub and adapted to fit inside my spare tire. Both of these subs required some fabrication to fit my car but in about 99 percent of cars there a direct fit. In both cases Crutchfield was my retailer of choice, they matched my deck sub with an amp and set me up with my wiring kits not to mention countless conversions regarding "gain" and the tuning process now try getting that from a big box store! In short if you want bass and a trunk get the JBL BassPro!

Pros: lots of bass down low where you want it!

Cons: none.....just waiting for a 15 inch version that will fit my 20 inch spare wheel.

Wow impressive bass output from such a small unit. Build quality and form factor is top notch. Love everything about this unit and I still have a full trunk. My coworkers can't believe how loud and small this sub is.

Pros: This sub is small and really loud. It take zero trunk space.

Cons: No cons, but If your installing this on a Prius you must get an LC2i because the factory Toyota radio decreases bass output as you increase volume.

Best Loaded Sub

RAL from Alaska on 11/25/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Installed this in a 2019 Jeep Cherokee. It has much more bass than what I anticipated! It sounds really good and it's a great addition for any vehicle, especially since it hides in the spare wheel. It's very easy to install and I was able to do it in about 4 hours while simultaneously preparing Thanksgiving dinner!

Pros: Easy to install and lots of bass. I live in Alaska and the extreme cold weather does not affect speaker performance.

Cons: Must buy a amp kit separately.

Should be fit in it. It fit my brother 2012 Nissan Altima donut spare tire in trunk
[ YUNG Y  Aug 04, 2019 ]

Measure the space for the spare tire. This unit is a little over 14" in diameter. If your space is 15" or larger, it should fit with no issues.
[ R  Jul 27, 2019 ]

It did not fit in mine, which is an LX. It was very close but too tall by about an inch for the lid that covers the trunk space to sit down flush. I knew it was going to be close. I returned it for this reason.

Surely you can install as many as you want in your car as long it able to handle the amp current and space It sounds very good from this small tiny sub and it always adjustable from the remote

We do not have the measurements of that space. I can tell you this powered subwoofer needs a diameter of 14-3/16" and a depth of 6-1/2" to fit flush My Bio: https://www.crutchfield.com/bio/Paul

Q
Hello Crutchfield, I have a 2018 Jeep Renegade Latitude with OEM Navigation system; Without Beats Audio System. I would like to buy the new JBL BassPro Hub but I'll need to buy a JL Audio LoC-22 2-channel line output converter? I think that my system hasn't remote output. Thanks
[ Melegaro  Mar 18, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
This BassPro Hub has auto turn-on ability when you feed a speaker level signal into it. You can install it without using the LoC-22 and it will turn on. But the LoC-22 would help improve the bass sound and will create a remote turn-on wire for this powered subwoofer. So, you can use it too and will be ok! My Bio: https://www.crutchfield.com/bio/Paul
