ES250P is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 97.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! This is an awesome sub-woofer. Thunderous, wall shaking, bone jarring bass. You can't go wrong with this one. This great sub-woofer greatly enhanced my 5 in 1 surround sound which has all JBL speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I bought my ES250P in April and I love it. It's awesome! The low level bass is fantastic. I've been a fan of JBL for over a decade and they didn't disappoint with this powered subwoofer. To top it all off, I purchased mine, new, for 1/3 of the original price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Now This is What I Call A Subwooffer! I did not pay the full price for this I got a special on it and am I glad I purchased it! This this controls like a Sub should not like some that are either all BOOMING at every low note and nothing else with this one you have a much finer control with it to be able to adjust the right amount bass without drowning out all the mids and Hi notes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should've bought sooner! Well after my 1st JBL sub blew after 10+ years of high use and probably my neglect on our last party, had to upgrade. I bought another brand because it was cheaper and immediately took it back for lack of performance. Ended up returning to JBL products because of the past durability,construction and sound. Glad I did, awesome sound, Performance and construction....good buy on this one. Thanks again JBL for a good product, keep up the good work.

Is this more powerful than the LSR310?  which is the better bass for Music Listening? Mostly Rock, Cellos and Modern Music.  Thanks

Asked by: asandop
I own the LSR310 and matching monitors. It is designed for different purposes. Being a studio reference monitor sub, it is made to be technically accurate and effectively "disappear" into the rest of a purpose-built system, in a purpose-built listening space. While the LSR sub does sound extremely good with music playback, it is not going to hit you in-your-chest with SPL and rattle the windows quite like the unit listed here is capable of doing, especially in a larger area.

Can you use this subwoofer with the JBL SB350 soundbar ? 

Asked by: Mrlar007
This is a powered subwoofer, and must be connected to the subwoofer line output of a receiver/amplifier, wich SB350 doesn't have, using RCA cable and plugged into the wall outlet in order to function. So no, the ES250P is not compatible with SB350.

Does it come with a subwoofer cable (RCA)?

Asked by: Nono
It does not. A standard RCA line level cable is all that is needed to connect your sub to your receiver. It is not included because every person needs a different length cable for their application. You must purchase the appropriate length cable for your needs.

This is strictly a powered sub and must be connected to an existing stereo or surround sound system including a receiver and speakers. You cannot pair a device directly to this sub.
