Highlights

Raw bass power – refined to perfection. 67 years in the making, we can safely admit it: we’ve pulled off another loudspeaker series that's powerful, precise, and hedonistically refined. It's our new 10-piece JBL® Studio 2 Series. And we never could have done it without engineering something as undeniably as our SUB 250P powered subwoofer. Tested relentlessly in our JBL sound lab – the most accurate of its kind in the world – as well as pitted against competitors in real world comparative listening studies, we’ve created a powered subwoofer that others can only hope to catch up with – but never measure up to. With a hair-raising 10” PolyPlas low-frequency transducer powered by a 200-watt Class-D high-efficiency amplifier, along with a rear-firing Slipstream bass port that goes beyond anything you’ve ever heard when it comes to undistorted opulence of sound, your ears will be confounded by the richness and rawness of tight, fast attack bass with flawless harmonic overtones and natural note decay. And with signature touches like luxurious gloss black paneling, solid cabinet construction with soft-rounded edges and no visible fasteners, and a choice of either a Black or Espresso woodgrain finish, we’ve done for the eyes what our bass has done for the ears. We’ve combined the power and precision of high-tech audio with the sleek urbanity of “it-factor” design. For those able to hear the truth, we’re confident you’ll know the difference just by listening.

Imagine a low-frequency transducerpowered by an advanced, energy-saving built-in amplifiers. Envision flawless JBL bass beguiling your eardrums – bass so tight that every note is held to its proper duration, and with all the right harmonic overtones. Picture this, and now listen to the Studio SUB 250P’s 10” PolyPlas transducer. Hear any difference between your imagination and reality? We didn’t think so.

Not only is the SUB 250P’s 200-watt amplifier a powerhouse in the realm of home entertainment, but it’s also one of the smartest. Its Class-D energy rating allows the amplifier to cool itself naturally – saving it from danger of burnout – and saving you from a higher electric bill. Its rear-mounted inputs and controls allow for discrete, easy set-up and integration with other loudspeakers in the Studio 2 Series.

The JBL way is to make it look as good as it sounds. And with our Studio SUB 250P, we’ve made no exception. With its 21st century elegance – including a solid cabinet construction with no visible fasteners, softlyrounded edges, a gloss black top panel, and a customized soft-touch paint scheme – we’ve built something that seduces your eye as much as your ear.

Studio SUB 250P is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sub! I've been running two of these units for several months now off of my Onkyo TX-NR737 receiver and they sound great. My main towers are L880s, the rear surrounds are L820s, and you just can't beat the sound. JBL has always made great speakers and these are no exception. Well worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Absolute Engineering Masterpiece I just received this unit and it is absolutely gorgeous. I almost feel as if my furniture doesn't measure up! This subwoofer has got to be one of the best in the industry and it has all of the latest and greatest features. The bass is tight, crisp and authoritative without the unwanted distortion. I have heard the truth and I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful and elegant This is a great subwoofer. It puts out a lot of deep, solid, tight bass with virtually no muddiness. As with any sub, placement is key to performance. I have mine positioned as close to a corner as I can. I have it matched with JBL's Studio 2 Series 290 dual 8" floor standing towers and together it's a powerful combination. This sub looks fantastic; very elegant. The moment I took it out of the box the quality was evident. For a mid-range sub, I doubt you could find a better one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not for the average... ...only a TRUE AUDIOPHILE can appreciate the function of this component. The purpose, element of this component has been developed and designed 40 years ago...but only applied to the present day with finer cabinet materials and a sturdier voice coil as apposed to decades ago ...GOOD JOB - JBL. A FINE piece of furniture too, and an OVERWHELMING sound support to those who have a REAL-STEREO component system who like me, who KNOW WHAT LISTENING TO QUALITY is, as best recorded through the years...take your time and adjust the level and the crossover function to your taste...I am floored at the depth this adds to the material I listen to. This "sub-woofer" IS NOT for everyone; only those who know how to appreciate what sound STILL CAN BE and IS.

Hello! 1) Does lfe title in crossover knob mean bypass sub crossover? 2) How crossover settings affects LFE channel? Does 80 Hz crossover setting in the sub really truncate LFE channel to 80 Hz? config: sub in: LFE. receiver out: LFE + L/R.  Thanks.

Asked by: CuriousCustomer
If you are connecting the SUB to the LFE output of your receiver/amp you would need to set the knob/switch all the way to max which is marked LFE to bypass the crossover in the SUB. If your connection is by way of line level/preamp out(L/R), you would need to set the crossover switch of the sub wo what is setup on your receiver/amp. For example, your receiver/amp is set to 50Hz for the sub settings, then you would need to set the sub to 50Hz as well for it to receive 50Hz and below audio frequency only.

Hello! Can you please tell me the correction sub woofer calibration settings to integrate with the JBL Studio 530? My setup is:Studio 530, 2x Studio Sub 250P and Cambridge CXA80 amplifier. How should i tune the subs so they compliment the 530's? tha

Asked by: tc89
There is no “right” setting for any subwoofer to go with any speakers. There are way too many variables (room size, curtains, pictures, rugs, etc.) that will change the sonic results within a room. I would recommend setting the sub and the speakers to 80Hz as a starting point. Live with it that way for a week or so. Then shift it up to 100Hz and see if you like it better. Then shift it down to 60Hz, and decide which way sounds best in your application.
