SUB 550P
$189.99 Price reduced from $599.95 to Save 68%



Built-in 300-watt RMS (500-watt peak) amplifier

A 300-watt RMS (500 watts peak power) amplifier lets you play your Studio 550P subwoofer at body-quaking levels without any room-vibrating reverb or excessive heat output. A built-in limiter extends this ability by preventing distortion that can arise out of sudden peaks, taking the audio from merely impressive to completely immersive.


10-inch (250mm) PolyPlas low-frequency transducer

The Studio 550P features a 10-inch (250-millimetre) cone made from lightweight yet rigid PolyPlas cone material. For the listener, this structure means powerful heart-thumping bass with such low distortion that individual sounds remain both accurate and articulate, even at sustained low frequencies. This is the kind of bass that takes surround sound from simply a listening experience to a seemingly tangible, robust environment.


Sealed enclosure

Power and accuracy normally do not go hand in hand. The Studio 550P, however, is by no means a mere normal subwoofer. It features a sealed enclosure that acts to control the woofer cone’s motion, thus providing consistent, reliable sound that remains smooth and rich even at the deepest of frequencies.


Forward-firing transducer

The Studio 550P places you in the centre of the action by sending the action straight at you via a powerful, forward-firing cone. Sound travels directly to your ears without reverberating off the walls or bending around the furniture. This is bass in its most potent form, from a subwoofer versatile enough to be placed in the middle of the room or against a wall.


Adjustable crossover frequency and phase control

A phase switch ensures that the action of the Studio 550 subwoofer’s transducer moves in sync with your main speakers. As a result, the subwoofer’s low frequencies blend seamlessly with the sound coming from the main speakers, regardless of where you place the subwoofer in a room. Furthermore, an adjustable crossover-frequency control lets you optimize the subwoofer for a variety of main/satellite speaker choices.


LFE and line-level inputs

A choice of LFE and line-level inputs lets you either use or bypass the subwoofer’s internal crossover circuits for bass-boosting versatility. This option provides greater flexibility in how you use the Studio 550P while ensuring noise-free connections to virtually any type of audio/video amplifier.


Metal floor spikes included

Unwanted interaction between the subwoofer and the floor can cause distortion – but the Studio 550P includes an array of metal spikes to reduce distortion. The use of such spikes also creates clean sound by placing a cushion of air between the speaker and anything that could potentially disturb its pristine low-frequency waves.

Item# SUB 550PBK


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 theatres 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-millimetre) transducer mounted inside a rigid yet light PolyPlas™ cast-aluminium 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 centre of the experience, right in your living room.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the tight bass over my budget ported subs. Initial impressions are setting them up...these JBL 550p sealed SUBS sound best at phase 180, just like previous BIC down firing 12" subs with the Polk XT speakers I'm using in my 5.2 configuration. I have to run them hotter at 3oclock versus the down firimg ported subs at 12oclock. Overall, I loving the musical sound of these subs and now understand why people love sealed subs over the ported subs. I am hearing various low notes versus just booms...the impact is still there when watching movie trailers, but seems so much cleaner and tighter. I can't wait to use them more and more...they are definitely not going back. You need at least 2 for best sound in a room with these.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Nice I have had this for a couple of weeks and am very happy with the quality and sound. It was not handled well during shipping and received a chip that is about 1" tall on the front vert (see photo). I do not believe the chip or impact that caused it effects the sound or performance. I am not interested in having it replaced. I purchase the unit on sale, and if I had paid the full price I might peruse having the problem remediated (I bought it on sale). I do not view the chip as a negative towards the brand, and am still very happy with the purchase. I am looking forward to upgrading my other speakers, and believe it will enhance the sound quality of this subwoofer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really impressive and the base is right on I was watching this sub for it to go on sale and soon as that happened I made sure to order one. It says refurbished but the one I got looked brand new with not a scratch. Compare the weight to the HKTS 16 sub it was replacing this Sub was at least 4-5 times heavier. I have JBL in wall and ceiling speakers plus a studio 520C Center so I really wanted a good sub because the Harmon Kardon sub was not cutting it. So installation was simple enough, plug out my old sub and use that cord to plug this in and connect the electricity. Turn it on and WOW, my living room started to rumble.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Defective Amplifier Board Please avoid making the mistake I did, and do not buy the JBL SUB550P. If you are shopping for an affordable subwoofer look to polk, monoprice, or klipsch. For a higher end unit look to SVS, REL, Rhythmik, or Hsu. First, from a business practices standpoint the subwoofer is problematic, because they keep alternating the price between $199.99 and $599.99 so you don't know what value you are getting with the product. It seems like you are getting a good deal but the problem is that their amplifier boards are simply defective. The first time I ordered this subwoofer it was making buzzing sounds, even though it was acoustically isolated from the floor. In his youtube video "A DIY Project With the JBL 550P Subwoofer - Turning Broken Into Booming", Digimorphosis explains that his subwoofer was buzzing because of problems with the plate. I returned this unit and received a replacement. The first time using this replacement it worked fine, but the next day I tried no sound came out. The green light indicator was on and my receiver was working with the other speakers indicating that this was not a problem with the receiver, LFE cable, or power cable, but rather that the amplifier board in the sub550p was short circuited. If you want a reliable subwoofer look elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10" 50 pound beast The JBL 550p may not seem very intimidating do to it's compact size, but man, after it settles might just find yourself completely satisfied. Prior to the 550P I owned a JBL ES150p, dual Kilpsch R-10SW and dual SVS SB12-NSD. All properly set up, balanced and timed to blend appropriately. The JBL 550p does indeed out perform those models. At least for my tastes. I'm not a bass-head by any means, but I like full, clear, fast, thick, musical low end, and that's exactly what the 550p delivers. Superb sub 60hz musical tonality blending flawlessly with my Studio 190 towers. For the first time music playback in Stereo mode sounds like the music is "just in the room" and not coming from speakers and subwoofers. Despite being a sealed sub the rumble the 550p creates during movie viewing and gaming literally shakes my living area and moves my hair at times. FYI I have the sub gain at 12 o'clock and AVR trim at -2db. The 550p is 7.5ft away from main listening position. My living area is roughly 12x18, open floor plan, 8 ft ceilings. I'm well aware that dual subs is all but mandatory to many people and publications these days, but one 550p is more than enough for my house. I included the trim levels so readers didn't think that my hair was moving because I was running the 550p super hot. Quite the opposite. In fact the sub is a tad behind the chaise portion of my sectional and I still feel it. At the sale price the 550p is undoubtedly a HUGE value. At the standard sale price the 550p is certainly worth it. I highly recommend the 550p but heed these takes several hours before the sub loosens up and starts performing as designed. So give it time to bloom and you shan't be disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My review is based on the fact that these subs were purchased while on sale. It is used in a master bedroom setup with the 530's For the money the sub is good; good tonality and dynamics, very punchy. I have the gain turned down because it can be empowering and boomy and in my bedroom. I use it for both music and home theater. IMO, this is best suited for HT. Would I buy this at full retail? No. Better options exist. When on sale they are a steal and very good value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Accurate, powerful bass I first bought the Infinity R 10 sub in Nov and this sub in Dec. I am using the R 10 for a 2.1 music setup and the Sub 550P for both music and movies. This was my first sealed sub. It was easy to setup with my AVR using the LFE connection. It is surprisingly deep, accurate, and it has power. I considered buying the Infinity R 12, but this unit is a better fit for a small to 230 sq foot medium size apartment living room. It has a fairly small footprint (does not eat my living room) and has both the looks and sound of quality. I'm happy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Option for Music I received the SUB 550P in early April and am very happy with its performance. The overall quality of the unit seems very high, but mine did come with a crack in the plastic that covers the front of the subwoofer (see pictures). I haven't yet heard back from their support as to what they think of the crack, but I'm hopeful they'll do something about it. I'm using the Subwoofer in a 2.1 configuration with the mains being Polk Signature S15's. I think a sealed sub is the way to go for music listening as they, in my experience, generally sound cleaner. They also avoid any sort of port noise that may be evident on many ported subs. The auto-on feature works really well, but I would like to note that the unit claims to use 6 watts in standby. I'd say this is accurate as the back of the unit is warm to the touch at all times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong value I’d been tinkering with my home theater setup, and the cheap ported sub I had was just not cutting it. There’s never enough money for the really ambitious things in life, but the 550p went on steep discount just when I needed it. The bass effects not only tickle my bones, but the sub integrated smoothly with my setup, freeing up my (relatively inexpensive) towers for cleaner midrange voices, and that has helped my whole arrangement sound about ten times better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Killer Speaker N Sound 1/17/22 My surround sound sounds good but I like more bass, with this speaker and built in amp it just thump’s away, you can adjust it to your liking, plus it’s not a cheap speaker or cabinet it’s solid and has some weight to it, plus you can hook it up to your existing system, you want great bass then I Highly Recommend this speaker. I also replaced my car speakers with JBL Speakers and it’s awesome!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I returned two of them I bought two of the 550p subs for our family as a Christmas present. They were on sale and had free shipping with free returns. The plan was to put them in our living room with the es90 fronts, es25c center, 8" in wall plates, and two pair of the ceiling 6" atmos. Yamaha RX-A3070 receiver. I replaced a single "home built" 15" ported sub tuned to 18.8 Hertz. I've been a JBL fan for a long time, and wanted to give them a chance. I was disappointed that the two 550p subs could not reach as low as the single Adire Tempest they were bought to replace. I played with the room placement, phasing, and settings, and gave them a fair trial. I really wanted to like them. I very carefully boxed them back and and have shipped them back to our friends at JBL. The free shipping and free returns policy makes it easy to see for yourself if you like these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Camper I'd shopped for a subwoofer for my stereo for over a year when I found the Sub 550P. The combination of size, specs, and price looked promising so I decided to give it a try and I'm very happy that I did. I'd read some reviews that said it was musical and I agree. It plays deeper and stronger than my old sub so I'm discovering new aspects to music I've been listening to for a long time. I'm also pleased with its performance as a home theater sub. Plenty of power for the space it's in a living room/dining room with vaulted ceiling.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Low output Huge jbl fan for both vintage and new speakers. Absolutely like the 590’s. Thought I would take a chance on the matching sub since it was on sale. I have many subs and this is the worst of the bunch and also the largest. My little elac sub blows the doors off this jbl sub. It just doesn’t have much power and feels like it doesn’t go down into low frequencies at all. I tried the paste etc and just not enough low end for a dedicated sub. Save your money and buy something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast, Tight, Musical bass. The way I would describe the bass from this subwoofer is “correct “ it’s not boomy at all it’s sealed so it is great for music. I have 2 of them matched with a pair of 590’s, in a 2 channel system strictly for music. The build on them is solid, they are as heavy as lead. I got them on sale for $189 dollars each! Could not be more happy with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sub for what I wanted to use it for. I am using this Sub in my Office to cover the low frequencies for the JBL Control 2P monitors I for my computer. It energizes the 12x12 foot room with clean detailed bass; I like the tight bass that you get from a good sealed sub. I think it best suited for a music system in up to a mid sized room. I bought it on sale and it is an absolute steal at under $200.00; if I needed it for a larger room, I would have bought 2. My HT system ( All JBL Studio series ) in a large room need a lot more than what this (or multiples of this could provide) to keep up and still not cover the lowest LFE, but then again, that is not what the 550P is designed for;. For what I needed, and for those focused 2 channel music listening, this sub is perfect. Highly Recommended

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded My Already High Expectations Since I already own a couple of JBL's outstanding floor speakers I purchased this sub with already exceptionally high expectations which were surprisingly exceeded once I set everything up to my liking. In my personal opinion, this sub provides unsurpassed SHARP and ACCURATE bass in whichever format you happen to be using Iit for (musical stereo, surround sound, etc.). It clearly outperforms (and sonically compliments) my existing 12-inch sub that's currently positioned just behind my monitor. Thus far, I've positioned this enclosed 10-inch sub just behind my viewing/seating area wherein the two subs provide a virtually stunning, "room-filling," and immersive bass response. The bottom line is that these JBL 10-inch subs are an exceptional deal,, however, I very likely wouldn't hesitate to purchase another one, regardless of the cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Sub 550P Rocks The 550 Sub is a fine piece of engineering. Once adjusted to your system and your taste, the 550 rocks. Precise, powerful clean bass. Like any piece of audio equipment, if it’s abused it will fail. Take care of the equipment and it will perform for many years. JBL is a quality company and produces a fine product in all categories. I highly recommend JBL and the Sub 550P.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A lot of bottom end for the buck I have been an avid fan of JBL for almost 40 years, but mainly from the pro side. I am putting together a new home theater and I needed to replace my 10 year old subs. I originally wanted a 15" sub with at least 300 watts but the price of the SUB 550P made it a no brainer, so I bought two to compensate for the smaller size. So far so good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big sound I got this on a sale for cyber Monday and it is definitely worth the money it costs at normal price. It has deep lows and loud highs. Although when it is turned up there is a noticeable smell from the voice coil or amplifier, I don’t push it terribly hard but the amp on the back does get warm and puts off a smell. Overall a great product

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.

My 550P goes into standbye after about 7 minutes of no audio signal. The manual states that it should be after 20 minutes. Can anyone weigh in? Does your sub go into standby under 10 minutes? Preferable those of you who recently purchased the sub.

Looking at the JBL 5.1 wireless system, comes with a 10" Sub. That Sub is Maybe 100W RMS? How does this Sub compares to that one? I assume it is way more power. Is is there a wireless adapter for the 550P so I can use that sub instead?

Asked by: Indiana1965
The Sub 550P is definitely more powerful than the Bar 5.1's subwoofer. Unfortunately The Bar 5.1 can only connect to the subwoofer that it came with and can't be connected to other subwoofers.

I saw that the specification of this product says 120V, 60Hz (US); 220V-230V, 50Hz/60Hz (EU). Then is it something you can use in 220V environment in Korea?

Asked by: Anonymous
Our JBL Sub 550P sold in the US 110V versions. You will need to use a transformer to be able to use the 110V subwoofer to a 220V outlet.
