ES150P is rated 4.5789 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of woof for not much dough! My second JBL subwoofer, first was a CSub50. The is a great refurbished value. Plenty of power and goes nice and low. Should make me a happy camper for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just like its big brother, very pleased! I bought this to compare to the ES250P 12" sub I bought recently and which I thought might be too big for my home theater system LOL. In comparison, the 150P, when volume matched to the 250P, held its own with a bit better integration to my smallish satellites, was a bit tighter musically but the cone was pushed to its limits to match the output of the (relatively) loafing 12" on movie soundtracks or similar CD audio. All I can say about the ES150P is wow! Lows of the 12" are amazingly all there in a slightly smaller package that I was looking for, but it does run pretty hot as the volume knob has to go up to compensate for less cone area I suppose. That is a concern for me long term but right now it is putting out about 110db peak @ 1M of solid sound on music tracks with the volume knob only at about 1/3rd of max, with the back of the amp pretty hot. I suppose that's as good as it is safely going to get but darn good enough when I want it! I was going to keep only one of the two but decided to keep both. The ES150P for the dedicated music system where the 250P was simply too much, and the 250P for the home theater where the 150P might not be enough. I couldn't be more pleased with ES150P because its performance is so close to its big brother that it would have to be the better buy of the two. Only wish both subs had auto standby to save power but I just turn them off when not being used so problem solved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Performance. I convinced my grandparents to purchase this sub, after they were reluctant at first to upgrade any of the old and outdated components from their previous home theater setup. Needless to say, once this beauty arrived we were all impressed, to say the least. This is a very high performing (and powerful) sub that not only plays loudly, but also crystal clear. Movies become an immersive and life-like experience, and music is filled with deep-end presence that was previously lacking. The sub's performance was (and still is!) so great that my grandparents decided to completely upgrade their entire home-theater system to JBL's matching ES series speakers. Would highly recommend!

Is there any difference between playing the sub in LFE mode and playing it on normal mode with the crossover-frequency set at 120 Hz (same crossover-freq as LFE)? Thanks.

Asked by: thelegend1310
In terms of sound, it will not make any difference. This is how the Input works. The LFE input is only selected if the ES150P is connected to a receiver that offers a low frequency effects. If the receiver does not have digital processing (i.e. Dolby Pro-Logic decoding only), the normal input must be selected. That being said, if the ES150P is connected to a receiver that does have digital processing (i.e. Dolby Digital or DTS decoding), this will bypass the crossover in the sub. The adjustment will be made on the receiver.

I cant get it to power on anymore, is there a fuse in the sub?

Asked by: lakerpete
Yes, there’s a fuse (1.25A 250V 5x20mm) in the ES150P, but it is internal. We do not recommend opening this unit up, as it is electrical and can be very dangerous. If you would like to have the unit serviced, please submit a request at www.jbl.com/contactus and the Customer Service team will happily assist you.

I'm using a PA system for Karaoke. The PA has a sub-woofer out. Can I add this ES150P to my PA system and use it for Karaoke?

Asked by: RyanS
All of the subs on this site are designed for home audio systems. While theoretically you can plug this sub into a PA system, we do not recommend this. The power and dynamics from a live system with live music and microphones requires a much more robust system. I would suggest that you check our www.jblpro.com site. This is where you will find professional application speakers and subwoofers.
