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 10" 50 pound beast The JBL 550p may not seem very intimidating do to it's compact size, but man, after it settles in...you 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 words...it 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.

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.

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.

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.

The Sub 550PBK is the same as the Studio Sub 550P.

Hello! Our Sub550 will work as long as you connect it to an audio input. In this case, yes you may connect it to your PA speaker. However, for compatibility you may need to reach out to the PA's speaker manufacturer.
