With an impressive 1000 watts of peak power handling, the JBL CS Series CS1214 subwoofer outperforms anything you may have heard before. Its polypropylene woofer cone is light as a feather, ensuring maximum efficiency and performance. A progressive spider provides better control at excursion limits than a linear spider ever could, reducing distortion at even the highest output levels. Go ahead and use the CS1214 with a small amplifier. You’ll have exquisite bass reproduction. Sure, it’s the sound in your car. And it matters. JBL knows what your standards are no matter where you are and where you go – and they’re our standards too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works in the home as well! Preferred to build my own sub for the house: I have two of these in a sealed enclosure and powered by a 900x2 Carvin amp. These subs are not subtle, they pound and pound. Very happy.

It will fit my car but where and how is the best place to locate, trunk, floor, other?

Asked by: HEGAWN2
This speaker is sold as a raw driver without an enclosure because most setups will be a customer installation. You can put the sub anywhere you decide works for you. For example, if you want to build an enclosure that will fit on the floor in the back seat, that will be fine. But most people will opt to install it in the trunk.

how many cubic feet should i give each speaker

Asked by: timtom
If you are looking for tight accurate bass, your best bet is a 1 cubic foot sealed enclosure. If you are running 2 speakers in the same box, all you have to do is double the space, making it 2 cubic feet.
