Low-Profile Design

Because today’s compact cars offer less space, the JBL Club Subwoofers are designed to fit into small enclosures. They’re slim, sleek, stylish, and don’t sacrifice on sound.

Harman-Proprietary SSITM (Selectable Smart Impedance)

Unlike most dual-voice coil woofers, which provide either 1 or 4 ohms or 2 or 8 ohms, the JBL Club Subwoofers allow the listener to 2-ohm and 4-ohm at the flip of a switch, providing the two most often used impedances from a single woofer. This allows the system designer unparalleled flexibility in extracting every last watt from your amplifier without compromising stability and thermal safety margins.

Frequency Response As Low as to 27Hz

Your audio is filled with delicious sounds. Unfortunately, you’re not always hearing them all. With lows that dig down into the depths of 27Hz, you’ll hear the low-end frequencies you’ve been missing.

Description

This boom is made for all shapes and sizes

JBL latest Club subwoofers offer incredible installation flexibility. Their low-profile design allows them to fit perfectly into even the most shallow of enclosures — great for today’s compact cars. Polypropylene woofer cones deliver exceptional bass response at frequencies as low as 27Hz. But what makes these subs really stand out is their Harman-proprietary SSITM (Selectable Smart Impedance), which allows the subwoofer to present the amplifier with either a 2 or 4 ohm load at the flip of a switch.

Product Q&A

Recomended boxsize, closed and vented ?

Asked by: Pvforever
A .75 cubic foot is recommended for sealed enclosure and 1.75 cubic foot for vented enclosure. For vented enclosure, you would tune the box to 33Hz by putting in a 4" diameter port that is 10" long. As for the shape of the box, it is impossible to give these dimensions as we don't know where you will be putting it. So the shape must be decided by you. Here's a way to calculate the sides of an enclosure. One cubic foot is 1728 cubic inches. Let's say you want to build a 6.5 cubic foot box. Convert 6.5 cubic feet to cubic inches by multiplying 6.5 times 1728, which equals 11232 cubic inches. The area of a rectangle can be calculated by the formula Length x Width x Height = Area. So, pick two sides that you would like to come close to. Lets say a height of 22 inches and a depth of 20 inches. I'll pick 24 inches as the width to start. 20 x 22 x 24 = 10560 - too small 20 x 22 x 26 = 11440 - too large 20 x 22 x 25.5 = 11220 - CLOSE ENOUGH So, your internal dimensions would be 22" High, 20" Deep and 25.5" long.

Im getting a custom box specifically for a 2000 chevy silverado extended cab. It is sealed and downfiring. Would this be ok?

Asked by: Slumarican
As long as the box is .75 cubic foot size, it will work great.

Does the 0.75 cubic feet requirement on sealed enclosures take into account the amount of volume displaced (consumed) by the sub? If not, how much should one add to the 0.75 cubic feet value to accommodate the sub?

Asked by: Silky Smoove
Yes. The 0.75 cubic feet requirement for sealed enclosures includes driver displacement.

How much airspace foes these subs need?

Asked by: Slumarican
If you are building a sealed enclosure for your CLUB WS1200 you would need at least 3” of space in front of the subwoofer for it to perform well. If you are going to build a ported enclosure, you would need space equivalent to the diameter of the port.

is there a amp that you would recommend to use with two of these?

Asked by: Anton1st
Yes. Thanks for your interest in our JBL Club WS1200. We'd best recommend our JBL Club 4505 car amplifier as it matches the power output required by your speaker, which has a peak RMS of up to 1800 watts. Check out more on this link: http://bit.ly/2B6LVKb.

does this fit a 2011 Chevy Malibu? and is it louder then the stock speakers?

Asked by: agiovannielli
Considering the slim design profile of the JBL CLUB WS1200, it ought to fit in your car with professional modification. As far as being louder, this is a subwoofer, when accommodated with adequate power/amplification, it ought to produce a deeper bass than almost all stock speakers.

I don't know a ton about car speakers and such, so cut me a little slack here.  Does this sub go in the rear deck of the car or in the trunk?? If this goes in the trunk, where can find a sub that goes in the rear deck? Thanks!

Asked by: MelCart
It depends on the model of your car. The WS1200 can be put in the trunk with a proper enclosure. As for the sub that goes in the rear deck, you may check out any car subwoofer on our website, put in the model of your car and it will tell you if it will fit your car.

Would it be possible to put the ws1200 in a 0.35 cubic feet enclosure if it has a passive radiator? I really like this speaker and an enclosure over 0.35 cubic feet wouldn't be possible so any help to make this happen would be much appreciated.

Asked by: ClownMan
Thanks for your interest in our products. Unfortunately, the optimum sealed enclosure is 0.75 cubic feet. Also, you could get the thiele-small parameters in the Documents and Downloads section.
