Overview

Our take on the JBL MS-BASSPRO SQ

JBL put their considerable know-how into creating an enclosure, sub, and amp that mesh together perfectly in the MS-BASSPRO SQ10" powered sub. Their engineers designed the square sub specifically for this enclosure — the extra surface area in the square cone produces heart-thumping bass beyond your typical round 10" sub. You'll save time on installation too — just run power and signal cables (not included) to the enclosure and you're ready to rock. And rock, you will.

JBL shrinks the sub, not the sound

Slipstream port

Hard-driving bass with less noise

The built-in Class-D amp powers your bass with 300 watts RMS for plenty of punch. JBL uses their Slipstream™ port design, originally developed for their home speakers and studio monitors, to get maximum performance out of the amp and the 10" sub without losing accuracy. Even with the volume cranked, you won't hear the "huffing" sounds that are common with less sophisticated port designs.

Get your control freak on

And you'll get plenty of control over your bass too. You can adjust the phase to match the sub's output with the rest of your speakers, try different crossover points to see what works best in your vehicle, or bring in the bass boost so the low notes slam just as hard as you want 'em to. With JBL's wireless remote (not included), you're even more in the driver's seat — adjust at will behind the wheel. There's a reason the pro's pick JBL speakers for concerts and recording studios; here's your chance to hear that same sound quality wherever the road takes you.

Features

Amplifier: The power output from the built-in amplifier is 300 watts RMS, 450 watts max.

Note: Neither speaker wire, RCA interconnects, nor amplifier wiring kit (power/ground/turn-on wires) are included.

Signal Input: The amplifier will accept either a speaker level or line level signal. The inputs are RCA jacks; if connecting a speaker level signal, use the included bare wire to RCA adapters. The input sensitivity range is 40mV-20V.

Crossover: The amplifier's low pass crossover point is continuously variable from 50 to 120 Hz; the crossover slope is 12 dB/octave.

Bass Boost: The bass boost circuit provides a variable (0-12 dB) signal boost centered at 40 Hz.

Audio Sense: The signal-sensing turn-on circuit automatically turns the MS-BassPro SQ on whenever the head unit sends an audio signal, useful in many installations using a factory head unit that may not have a dedicated remote turn-on wire. This feature is easily switched off for aftermarket head units that do have a dedicated remote turn-on wire.

Slipstream: The proprietary Slipstream port's dual flares eliminate vent noises, even at high sound pressure levels.

Wireless Bass Control: An optional MS-WBC wireless bass control (item number 109MSWBC, sold separately) is available to remotely adjust the bass output. The MS-WBC communicates via RF signal and requires no physical connection to the amp; it's also battery powered, but has an optional power wire if you prefer not to replace the battery periodically.

Controls:

  • Bass Boost: rotary knob; continuously variable from 0 to +12 dB
  • Crossover Frequency: rotary knob; set the low pass crossover point; continuously variable from 50 Hz to 120 Hz
  • Input Level (gain): rotary knob; continuously variable
  • Input Level Switch: three position switch, Low, Hi, Hi2 (Hi2 is used to present a speaker load to factory radios equipped with a circuit that turns the radio off when an amp is connected)
  • Phase: two position switch; 0° or 180°; the sub's phase can be easily inverted
  • Audio Sense Switch: two position switch; on/off; when on the amplifier will turn on automatically when it senses an input signal

Connections:

  • Power Input: screw terminals for power, ground, and remote turn-on; each will accept spade terminals up to 0.375" wide
  • Fuse: a single 30 amp ATO style fuse protects the amplifier
  • Input: stereo female RCA jacks; used for line level or speaker level inputs (adapter included for speaker level inputs)
