Muscular sound from a 10" (250mm) subwoofer with built-in 300W RMS amplifier.

Bass is the foundation of great sound. You don’t just hear it in your ears; you also feel it from the top of your head to the bottom of your feet. JBL® subwoofers are built to maximize such a feeling as well as enhance your entire experience of sound. The same JBL sound engineers who designed the playback systems for many of the world’s top concert venues, recording studios and THX®-equipped movie theaters have optimized their technologies and materials in the Studio 550P subwoofer to play with just about any home system. This subwoofer incorporates your entire body into an enveloping bass experience. The 550P outputs astonishingly realistic and immersive low-frequency sound via a forward-facing, 10-inch (250-millimeter) transducer mounted inside a rigid yet light PolyPlas™ cast-aluminum cone frame. This is the kind of powerful, low-distortion bass that you can feel from skin to ear to chest cavity, and one that practically transports you to the very environment that you are hearing. The Studio 550P truly places you at the center of the experience, right in your living room.

SUB 550P is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT ADDITION TO MY SOUND BAR I purchased this sub to add to my Yamaha YAS-106 sound bar. Had enjoyed the sound bar but was looking for a fuller sound and some effects on movies. I am very pleased with the addition of the JBL sub to my sound bar. It filled out the sound and added the bottom that I was looking for. Simple set up....just plug and play really.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great subwoofer! I bought one of these subs for a new home theatre setup. When I tried it out it was great for music but lacking a bit for home theatre for my large living room with high ceilings. I added a second one of these and it now sounds great for movies as well as music. I was originally planning to build a high end subwoofer, but decided to try one of these because it was on sale at a fantastic deal. Even though I bought two of them I spent less at the sale price than I was planning to spend on building a sub. These are very well built with cast basket subwoofers and 1" thick mdf enclosures and weigh about 50 pounds each. If you can get one of these when it's on sale don't hesitate to buy one or maybe two.

I have a stereo receiver that only has a pair of high level speaker outputs (Speaker A and Speaker B). No pre-outs. How to I hook up this sub? through the High level input? The only inputs i see listed are LFE and line in.

Asked by: Ludog14
Thank you for your inquiry regarding you JBL SUB 550P. If an LFE connector is only option then you connect it to the left line-in connector only. If you requuire further assistance, please submit a case at www.jbl.com/support-contact.html and the Customer Service team will be more than happy to further assist you.

Omh and watts

Asked by: Junaide
The SUB550P is rated at 300W RMS and the load impedance of the speaker is 4-ohms. While the speaker is 4 ohms, being that it is self powered, this is irrelevant to the receiver it is being connected to.

With the built in amp, can the output power satellite speakers without a receiver? Thanks in advance from a complete audio noob.

Asked by: Kevin123
No. The SUB 550P must be connected to a receiver in order to function.

If I buy a BT audio adapter for this, any problem connecting to my TV? I currently am using a (wired) soundbar and a BT powered sub. The BT powered sub that came with soundbar is lousy.

Asked by: 65Mustang
Hi! The Sub 550P will accept any signal that is sent to it. If you have a Bluetooth wireless transmitter and receiver that you can connect to the soundbar and the subwoofer, then that should work. But you would also need to check if the soundbar that you have has an audio output where you can connect the Bluetooth transmitter to because if the soundbar has no output, then the Bluetooth receiver will not work with the Sub 550P.
