High tech, high volume

The Arena X features a proprietary motor design that provide completely linear cone travel throughout the cone's excursion range — that means you'll hear supremely accurate bass. Its aluminum composite concave cone and nitrile-butylene rubber surround take charge, giving you clean output at any power level. A massive die-cast aluminum basket and progressive spider keep everything together so your bass stays tight at the highest volume levels. And its oversized 2.5" voice coil drives the cone to stunning levels of output.

Take a power trip

The Arena X can take up to 800 watts RMS to rattle your windows and blow your mind, so be sure to feed it the power it needs to deliver the massive bass it's designed for. The gold-plated terminal binding posts ensure maximum signal transfer so you'll always get great sound.

JBL built the Arena X 12" subwoofer to deliver the ultimate bass sound. When you're ready for seismic levels of low end, this sub is ready to rock your world.

Features

Terminal: The spring post terminals will accept bare wire up to 8 gauge.

Sealed Box: JBL recommends a sealed enclosure with an internal volume of 0.954 ft³. Sealed enclosures provide the most control over a woofer and provide accurate sonic reproduction, making them suitable to all types of music.

Ported Box: JBL recommends a ported enclosure with an internal volume of 1.27 ft³ using one 4.72" diameter x 36.8" long port, resulting in a tuning frequency of 30.5 Hz. They also recommend using a sub-sonic filter. Ported enclosures typically provide better overall efficiency above the tuning frequency than sealed enclosures, so they are suitable for use with smaller amplifiers, giving you more bass output from a given amount of power.

Free-air Mounting: In addition to being compatible with sealed and ported enclosures, the woofer can be used in free-air applications. A free-air subwoofer is designed to be mounted on a baffle board, which separates the front of the speaker from the back. For instance, you could mount this woofer to a board attached to the rear deck or placed in the trunk against the rear seat. The trunk acts as the enclosure housing the subwoofer. Because there is no specific volume of air to stiffen the suspension, the free-air power handling is approximately half that of the woofer in a box, in this case 400 watts RMS.
