300-watt RMS (500 watts peak) amplifier

An integral 300-watt RMS (500 watts peak power) amplifier means that the Studio SUB150P subwoofer can develop high-energy sound levels without adding unwanted artifacts. A built-in limiter prevents the distortion that results from sudden peak levels and thereby turns a sound experience from the merely impressive into the completely immersive.


10" (250mm), low-frequency transducer

The Studio SUB150P features a 10-inch (250-millimeter) low-frequency transducer that delivers chest-thumping audio – but it’s accurate enough to articulate individual sounds at sustained low frequencies. Such immersive bass creates a foundation that is powerful enough to support an entire surround-sound experience.


Digital amplifier circuitry

Energy efficiency is a priority; so too is low heat output. The Studio SUB150P’s built-in digital amplifier fulfills both functions but doesn’t skimp on your primary requirement: powerful, low-frequency sound.


Bass-reflex enclosure

Unlike other subwoofers, the Studio SUB150P is not housed within a sealed enclosure. Instead, the SUB150P features a bass-reflex enclosure, which provides movie soundtracks and music with the breathing room they need to sound realistic with little or no distortion.


Down-firing transducer

The Studio SUB150P’s driver fires downwards instead of outwards, a configuration that prevents unwanted interaction with walls and the sound reflections that result from the interaction. Instead, sound travels upwards through the room, resulting in clean, crisp bass. As a result, you can place the SUB150P anywhere in a room without worrying that it’ll produce the artificial “boominess” that can detract from the realism of a surround-sound experience.


Comprehensive phase and crossover controls

A two-position phase switch ensures that the Studio SUB150P’s bass transducer moves in sync with your main loudspeakers. The subwoofer’s low frequencies will blend seamlessly with sounds from other speakers, regardless of where you put the subwoofer. Also, an adjustable crossover frequency lets you optimize the Studio SUB150P for different choices of main/satellite loudspeakers.


LFE and line-level inputs

A choice of LFE (low-frequency effects) or line-level inputs means that you can either use or bypass the Studio SUB150P subwoofer’s internal crossover circuits. Such an option provides greater flexibility in how you set up and use the SUB150P, while it ensures noise-free connections to virtually any type of AV amplifier or sound center.


Exclusive JBL Weave design

The JBL Weave design is a perfect convergence of form and function. Able to stand out or blend in with the finest décor, the Weave makes the Studio SUB150P powered subwoofer’s trapezoidal enclosure is as functional as it is pleasant to the eye.

Listen with more than just your ears.

Powered subwoofers bring visceral excitement to film soundtracks and are an indispensable component of any serious multichannel audio system. But too many are too big. They dwarf other system components. And many front-firing systems require special placement within a room for even basic, decent performance. But the JBL® SUB150P is different. It’s a 10-inch (250 mm), 300W down-firing transducer in a compact, trapezoidal reflex enclosure that fits just about anywhere. It connects to virtually any A/V receiver and works with virtually any speakers. Why go without emotional impact bass another day?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stands the test of time! I've had my JBL SUB150P for about 5 years now. It's still in my home theater, even though I have upgraded other components. This powered sub is built like a tank! Very durable. It's made it through 3 moves. It produces deep, gut rumbling lows. It compliments the JBL Tower fronts, JBL Studio 120 rear surrounds, and Polk Audio C10 center perfectly. Too bad this was a discontinued model because it's pretty timeless!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Defective Product I bought this sub about a week ago. It was defective. Returned for replacement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Probably 6 * out of 5. Because it is way too much powerful. I am setting it to about 50% of volume. On higher volumes it rattles everything and gives ear pain.

Product Q&A

Can this subwoofer connect with my jbl soundbar wireless to add more bass to a large room.? The soundbar I have already has one powered sub, wireless of course. 

Asked by: Seanzilla
Our soundbars are stand-alone units and additional speakers cannot be connected to it, may it be wired or wireless. So no, the SUB150P must be connected to an audio/video surround sound receiver in order to function.

Can this JBL subwoofer be paired with the JBL boost TV

Asked by: Jq54321
The JBL Boost TV does not have any ports to connect to a subwoofer either through a wired or wireless connection.

Can this speaker play by itself or does it need something else to go with it? Like another speaker for treble...?

Asked by: Benjamin
This is purely a powered subwoofer. It is only able to play the really deep bass that causes the rumble. You cannot use any powered subwoofer on its own. It must be used with a full speaker system.
