ES150P is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mind Boggling Bass I've had this sub for about 3 months now and I couldn't be more satisfied with it. One nice feature is how sensitive the auto turn on/off is. What I mean is even the slightest signal from my amp to the RCA inputs will turn it on (even my phone signal will turn it on). That may sound kinda obvious but I have a Polk Audio 10" and it will turn off while I'm listening to music and it is clearly producing sound. Another great feature is how low the sub gets. It will hit the deep, deep tones and will handle them like nothing else. The 300 watts RMS allows it to get those low continuous frequencies AND own them. It's a great looking home theater sub with a massive down firing port and I have just ordered a pair of ES30 bookshelf speakers to match it. Overall, it's a great subwoofer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful Clean Bass I bought this to replace an older JBL 12" powered sub, I am very happy with my new sub, it appears to be very well built with a nice compact size and a sleek modern look that compliments any room, the sound is clean crisp and deep and it sounds like a much larger size subwoofer than a 10", well worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful tight base !! Ordered this to go with a new set of JBL studio 180 floor standing speakers that I purchased , I was running a sony 50 watt powered sub with them and wanted something with a little more power to give that deep rich base that I enjoy from my music and movies , the 180's do produce a good amount of base on their own but I wanted to lessen the load of the lows that they had to reproduce ! After an extensive amount of time researching powered subs on line and reading hundreds of reviews I decided to go with the JBL , some of the other BRAND names that I looked up and almost ordered blindly just going on the name did not fair well when it come to customer reviews , some of them were just plain horrible as far as reliability and durability and for me this was a major concern for me because I am not someone that replaces my equipment every couple of years !! As far as the JBL ES150P sub I am very impressed with it's power , accurate , and crisp base that it puts out , I have only had this sub for about a month or so , so we will have to let time tell about the durability and longevity of its life !! However you will not be disappointed with the deep , powerful and room shaking base that this sub is capable of producing , it will take that low end load off of your regular speakers and make them sound all that much better !!! If I find any problems or reliability issues with this unit in the future I will write an update , however JBL being the longtime maker of fine audio speakers I'm am confident that they will address any issues that may occur !!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A carrying handle on top would make this a 5 star If I were using this for an audio setup where it didn't have to be moved frequently I would give this speaker 5 stars. It sounds great so far, but I have not used it much yet. I'm using it instead of a mammoth 18 in sub-woofer enclosure and it sounds just as good in situations where I don't need as much volume. So far I'm very happy with it, but only time will tell how it will last. The only downside is it's a bit awkward to carry but again it's not really designed to be moved around a lot. Also, the front grille is a bit flimsy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from do not buy! Do not buy this item because I bought this sub and had it for less than a month then suddenly it does not turn on. I have never turned it up too loud and have been taking care of it and it decides to not turn on and i can't figure out what the problem is. The sub sounded great and clean until it decided to stop working.
