About the JBL Club WS1200

Bob Bihlmayer

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.

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

Q
300 RMS @ 2 OHMS ok to run this sub on?

Greetings David. Unfortunately we cannot recommend running more than rated power on speakers, and subwoofers. This is rated for just 250.

Q
Recommend amp for a single 12, preferably trying to stay within the JBL family. Open to other options, tho. Any suggestions?
calvin  Nov 18, 2023

I would be happy to help, Calvin. This JBl Club WS1200 has a maximum power rating of 250-watts RMS and has a convenient impedance selection switch for 2 or 4-ohm operation. I would consider the JBL Stage A3001 Mono amp in the link below. The JBL Amp only lists the 2-ohm power numbers (4-ohm numbers are unavailable), most amplifiers will put out less wattage into a 4-ohm load and that would put it into the safe operating range for a single JBL WS1200 subwoofer, keeping you paired JBL to JBL! https://www.crutchfield.com/p_109STA301M/JBL-Stage-A3001.html

Q
It says the mounting depth is 3 5/16 if I built a Box 4" tall would it fit in it?

Physically, yes. I'd probably put some poly-fill in the box between the basket and the box, just to insure that no contact is made should your mounting surface deflect more than the 9/16" of clearance you're giving it.

Can you recommend an amp to power 2 of these subs?

I'm using a JL XD600/1 with the speakers set at 2 Ohms. It doesn't overpower them and I still have room to turn it up when I really want to shake stuff.

Q
i have a sealed box that is .9cu ft. the recommended is .75cu ft. is this going to be a problem?
james  May 20, 2018

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.
ryan  May 04, 2018 (Staff)

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.
