About the JBL Club WS1200

Designed for versatility

If you're into bass, you've probably had to sell off subs at some point because they didn't fit in your plans to expand your system. JBL designed their Club Series WS1200 12" subwoofer for versatility. Its low-profile design allows it to fit into shallow enclosures, and its selectable impedance gives you flexibility in configuring your system. That means it'll fit in just about any vehicle and into any upgrades you make to your bass setup.

Selectable impedance

Unlike most other dual voice coil subs, this sub's Selectable Smart Impedance (SSI™) switch allows you to change impedance from 2 ohms to 4 ohms, the most commonly used impedances. This feature makes it easy to reconfigure your system when you add another Club Series subwoofer or upgrade your amplifier. The sub's polypropylene cone punches out bass as low as 27 Hz and handles up to 250 watts RMS. It works equally well in sealed or ported enclosures, another example of its versatility.

To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 175 and 400 watts RMS at 2 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

Features

Selectable Smart Impedance (SSI): A switch on the input terminal allows you to easily change the woofer's impedance between 2Ω and 4Ω settings. (The connected amplifier should be off when changing the impedance.)

Enclosure Recommendations:

  • Sealed Box Volume: 0.75 ft³
  • Ported Box Volume: 1.75 ft³ with one 4" diameter x 10" long port (tuned to 33 Hz)
  • Free-Air: The woofer can also be mounted in free air to a baffle board (infinite baffle, no enclosure). When mounted in free air, the power handling is reduced by half (to 125 watts RMS).
  • Band Pass: JBL recommends a bandpass enclosure with a sealed chamber volume of 1.0 ft³ and a ported chamber volume of 1.75 ft³ with one 4" diameter x 7.5" long port. Bandpass enclosures often provide the most output available from any amplifier and subwoofer combination, but at the expense of sonic accuracy.

Thiele-Small Parameters: Some of the parameters change based on the impedance setting:

 
Re (Ω) 1.84 4.16
Le (mH) 0.65 0.71
Sd (cm²) 502.73 502.73
Bl (Tm) 9.02 12.87
Vas (liters) 97.43 97.56
Cms (μm/N) 274 275
Mms (g) 177.46 177.02
Fs (Hz) 22.80 22.82
Qms 6.24 3.57
Qes 0.57 0.64
Qts 0.53 0.54
Xmax (mm) 7.65 7.65

I ordered a JBL amp and wanted subs to match that fit in my small box under my Titan rear seat. I have had great results with JBL in the past. [ Michael  Sep 25, 2017 ]

Q
i have a sealed box that is .9cu ft. the recommended is .75cu ft. is this going to be a problem?

A
Not at all. 0.75 cubic feet is ideal but it will work in your slightly larger airspace without issue.

Q
I'm building a box and putting two of these in them I'm going with a square port right now I have it 2 inchs wide by 12 inches long is that too small?

JBL recommends using a round port; 4" in diameter and 10" in length.

I doubt it. I have 2 in an enclosed box with a 500 watt amp. It makes me smile every time. Have them face down if ya can.
