I purchased 2 of these as an up grade from my Cerwin Vega speakers (12"pushes 300 watts ) which are 25yr old. I wanted a balanced sound from the 2 10" subs in my room of 12'x22'. they performed well but still lack some of the full lower bass I was use to with the Vega, and when turned up at high vol.(vol. level at 70 on a Onkyo TX-NR708) the bass that it did have, seamed to be a little much for the small design of the speakers (kind of hummed a little). On my part, I just wanted a (fuller) bass response. Speaker sounds good and has power to push the bass. 3 stars because of the material used on the speaker (veneer) is starting to peel away from the speaker. Would return but would cost $75.00 per spk, +$10.00 shipping labels per spk & restocking fee to be determined. So, over all, good not great speaker for the price. Disappointed because l own a pair of JBL Stage Tower spk for 8 yrs, and they're still great! JBL could/should do better.
Pros: good in a small room, nice color (white)on sub woffer.
Cons: lacks some bass responances & veneer seams cheep.

Replaced an old-blown sub. I had limited space and the A100P fit and was easy to set up. Love it!

My dad had JBL speakers and I had HK20's so I was familar with the names. This JBL A100P is taking the place of of a sub that stopped working (it was 18years old). It connected to my Onyko 820 and surround sound in minutes and having control of the Volume and Crossover Control allowed me to control and get the sound I wanted. Some may want more noise and bass which this has but I don't crank it up that high. It's used in a room that is 24x14 and I can adjust the volume if I want to. This JBL delivers the sounds that I want to hear and I like it.
Pros: Easy to set up easy to control the sounds and it sounds great.
