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.
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.
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.

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.
Any reason the 12" SUB 560P is not being sold? I have recently bought Studio 590+530+520 to build 7.2.4 and I'd love to get two 560P to complete the setup.
With the built in amp, can the output power satellite speakers without a receiver? Thanks in advance from a complete audio noob.
I have a JBL Soundbar 3.1 and the wireless subwoofer just broke. Could this one be hardwired to the soundbar to replace the broken wireless sub?
Can someone please let me know ASAP if this speaker works using a simple auxiliary cord connected to a phone? Yeah idk really know too much about speakers but I honestly cant tell.
Will this sub will work with JBL 5.1 4K UHD Bar or JBL 9.1 4K Dolby Atmos Bar along with it’s included subwoofers? If yes, is there an instruction provided on how to setup this? Appreciate your help. Thanks V
Will this SUB 550P works with JBL link bar? And how to connect them? Thank you!
How long is the warranty on the sub 550p refurbished?
