Excellent power handling

The Stage 102AM features a polypropylene cone for enhanced stiffness, supported by a high-roll rubber surround that'll stand up the abuses of life in your ride. It'll handle up to 225 watts RMS (900 watts peak), and it works equally well in sealed or ported enclosures, so you can get the kind of bass you want.

Reliability

The 1-1/2" voice coil contributes to this sub's impressive power handling, while airflow from the cone's movement cools the voice coil for exceptional reliability. And, speaking of reliable, JBL puts these subs through a rigid testing process that includes baking, freezing, and blasting them with power for days on end, all so that you never have to worry.

Enclosure Recommendations

Sealed Box: JBL recommends a sealed enclosure with an internal volume of 1.23 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 1.0 ft³ using one 2.95" diameter x 4" long port, resulting in a tuning frequency of 50 Hz. They also recommend using a sub-sonic filter. Ported enclosures typically provide better overall efficiency than sealed 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 112½ watts RMS.

Band Pass: JBL also recommends prefabricated band-pass enclosures. Band-pass enclosures often provide the most output available from any amplifier and subwoofer combination, but at the expense of sonic accuracy.

Q
Can I install this Subwoofer without amp in a 2015 Honda Accord Touring ?
mike  Jun 14, 2023

A
This would not be ideal for your Accord. The factory subwoofer is closer to a 2-ohm impedance. Using a 4-ohm sub would likely result in lower volume levels. Also, the factory speaker is 8" diameter. It may be difficult to fit a 10" diameter subwoofer.

Q
Is this a shallow mount subwoofer?

looks like free air flow basically one u put in your car with no box. I have one replaced my factory sub in the rear window.

This is not a shallow mount subwoofer. It needs closer to the typical mounting depth that subwoofers need. We carry shallow mount subwoofers and I recommend contacting an advisor by calling 1-800-324-9695 to get help finding on for your setup
