Craving bass but strapped for space? Put JVC's CS-BB2 compact powered subwoofer to work in your car. This self-contained bass solution will do wonders for your sonic experience even when you've got little room to spare.

Craving bass but strapped for space? Put JVC's CS-BB2 compact powered subwoofer to work in your car. This self-contained bass solution will do wonders for your sonic experience even when you've got little room to spare.

The slim silver and black cabinet houses a 6" subwoofer and a conservatively-rated 32 watts RMS x 2 amplifier. The cabinet measures in at a mere 2-1/2" high, making it ideal for mounting under a car seat, or on the back wall of a pickup truck cab. A low-pass filter tailors the bass output to enhance your music, while the included wired volume control gives you fingertip control of the bass volume.

Speaker- and preamp-level inputs allow you to hook the CS-BB2 to almost any car system. A power and connection harness is included.

I just needed bass to complete the sound, and this little sub did the trick. I installed it under the passenger seat of my 1999 Toyota Tacoma and it will produce more bass than needed. Well worth the money and time spent installing.

Product Research



Overview: The JVC CS-BB2 is a compact Powered 6" woofer that can be easily installed under the driver or passenger seat of a variety of vehicles. It is so small you can even install it under many powered seats. It makes a perfect fit for pick-up trucks, convertibles, cargo vehicles and family vehicles that cannot give up trunk space.

Driver: The CS-BB2 uses a 6" dual voice coil woofer to add better bass response to your vehicle that has limited room for adding a subwoofer or amplifier.

Amplifier: The CS-BB2 uses a 32 watt RMS x 2 channel amplifier to give you clear, accurate bass response from the enclosed 6'' woofer.

Enclosure: The amplifier and woofer are housed in a small enclosure that only measures 2.5" tall which makes it very versatile and easy to use even in the most compact of vehicles.

Wired Remote Control: The wired remote control allows you to turn the CS-BB2 subwoofer's output off and on. The wired remote also allows you to adjust the subwoofer output level so you can dial in more bass when you need it.

Note: Do not place the remote controller where it will be exposed to direct sunlight. When using the wired remote, deactivate all sound adjustment functions except volume level; otherwise, the sound may be distorted.

L.P.F. (Low Pass Filter) Switch: You can turn the low pass filter off if your receiver is equipped with a built in low pass filter output. 

Crossover Frequency:

  • L.P.F/"ON": 20 Hz to 200 Hz

  • L.P.F/"OFF": 20 Hz to 500 Hz

Phase Switch: You can adjust the phase of the subwoofer to match the existing speakers in your vehicle. Switch to the position that gives you the best sound.

Speaker Level In: The unit has speaker level inputs so you can hook the CS-BB2 to your factory radio without any additional adaptors.



  • Line In: stereo RCA jacks to hook up to your aftermarket deck that has pre-amp outputs
  • Speaker/Power In: 9-pin jack for use with supplied speaker/power input harness
  • Cont. (Control): female mini-jack input for the wired remote control unit
