Product Description

The JRX118S is a 1x18 in. compact (passive) subwoofer, rated at 1400 watts peak power capacity and 350 watts continuous. It includes a JBL 18 in. woofer with a cast frame and 3 in. voice-coil.

About the JRX100 Series

JBL designed the JRX100 series for cost-conscious musicians, DJs and other users of live sound reinforcement speakers. All full-range models feature Neutrik Speakon and 1/4 in. input connectors. JRX100 cabinets are constructed of carpet-covered, 3/4 in. MDF -- a material that is structurally and acoustically superior to the particleboard that is used by many competitive products. To minimize distortion, heavy gauge wire is used for inductors and SonicGuard high-frequency driver protection guards against damage caused by inadvertent overpowering of the system. The JRX115 and JRX112M's innovative, dual-angle pole socket allows them to be mounted in either a conventional, vertical position, or with a 10 degree down angle. By aiming the speaker down, you get more even audience coverage and reduce the destructive acoustic reflections from walls. JBL constructs the JRX enclosures with advanced adhesives and closely mechanically spaced fasteners, not just glue. They use non-resonant, all metal handles, and an 18-gauge, full metal grille. All JRX100 models have passed the same 100-hour, full rated-power torture test that JBL high-end touring systems must survive.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (38 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Compact, handy and reliable"
Sound: Not too bad.. They seem to produce decent low end without breaking up too badly.. I run about 450 Watts to each and it doesn't seem quite enough for some of the rooms that I play... What I do get seems quality though.. Feature: Though Speaker features are limited always.. I do like the fact that it at least has One Quarter inch Input as well as Speakon connections on each cabinet. I also like the concept of building 4 Ohm cabinets. It allows me to get the most out of my power amp. I could run two of these cabs in each side of my Crown CE2000 and pump out enough bass to fill any room I would need to.. What I like the most about these cabinets is their size.. Finally a Sub that will fit into my blazer SUV and still have room for plenty more!! They are definitely the smallest 18 Cabinet I have seen on the market.. At the price, I don't think you can go wrong.. Ease of Use: With a Driverack, the sound is pretty decent.. I find them quite easy and in need of only a little EQ to get a good sound. Quality: I have had them well over a year and they have never failed once.. I take great care to not push my power amps too hard to cause clipping which will lead to the demise of just about any speaker.. Value: Well, I got a smoking deal at a Local store for $650 for the pair (that was about 1 year ago).. Now I see they are going for 439 a piece.. I though 399 was an "OK" value but for 325 a piece, that makes them a tremendous value.. Manufacturer Support: Never had to deal with JBL support.. Though my buddy has for different product, They took great care to resolve his problem in a timely manner.. The Wow Factor: It's appeal to me was the size.. Not only, I know to expect quality even from Low-end JBL product.. Part of me wants to get two more to add to the setup to increase my overall bass response.. The quality is good but when you get a roomful of people, 4 of these cabinets would push the bass through much better.. Overall: I suspect that these models will be all I ever need for my club dates that don't provide in house systems. Again, I am thinking of getting another set so that I can hook two to each side of my CE2000 thus running at 2 ohms and increasing my entire bass output to ~2000 watts..

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Professional Quality In All Areas"
Sound: I work for a theater ad I run sound for Broadway touring shows on a regular basis. This sub can hang in there with many of the pro EAW and Meyers systems. Feature: I used a Crown XTi 2000 amp with the internal cossover set to 100hz to power these subs which gives them 800 watts in stereo. It sounded awesome. Ease of Use: These have both NL4 Speakon and 1/4 inch connectors making them compatibel to almost any system. You don't to many pro-level cabinets with both types of connectors anymore. Quality: Definately very high quality can hold it own with the touring shows equipment. Value: Same class in quality of sound as $1xxx subs so it is definately worth it. Manufacturer Support: Who knows...I havn't needed them and I probably never will. The Wow Factor: This will be the last sub you will ever need-no matter what your genre is. Overall: Don't even consider Peavy, Mackie, Nady, Behringer, Kustom, or Yamaha speakers - JBl will blow them out of the water in all areas.

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today.
