Arena SUB 100P is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crisp and clear bass, rounds out my surround syste I recently upgraded my home audio/video system. I added a Samsung 55" UHD curved screen TV, Samsung UHD DVD player, Yamaha RX-A850 7.2 Surround Receiver. I already had a JBL 6.1 Surround System. The subwoofer with that setup had a couple capacitors replaced a few years back and one of the connections was now loose. To fix that I bought two of these subwoofers that balance each other out perfectly. I'm a JBL person for life!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid range and clarity I bought this a month ago to replace my other JBL sub that got damaged in a move. I was already happy with the other one but little did I know what I was missing out on. I love the sleek contemporary design and the clear crisp bass that accompanies my music, movies and games. 5/7 would buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Complete Coverage Ok, this bad boy really packs a punch for its size. I particularly like the boomy sound typical of a ported (or in this case, dual ported) enclosure. It does sound a little swampy with rock especially with double bass drum, however, not as swampy as other ported enclosures...it is a little tighter and hits the lows very well due to JBLs superior design.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nach Lieferung defekt Eine Bewertung der Klangqualität kann ich leider nicht vornehmen, da das Gerät direkt nach Lieferung defekt war: - Funkenüberschläge an den Lötstellen des Schalters, da zwei Lötstellen "kalt" waren - Pumpendes Netzteil und somit kein Ton, nachdem die Lötstellen des Schalters nachgelötet wurden; Wahrscheinlich Folge der Spannungsspitzen aufgrund der kalten Lötstellen. Dabei ist wahrscheinlich der Treiber-IC im Schaltnetzteil "gestorben". Die meisten der Fragen kann ich leider objektiv nicht bewerten, weil es bisher noch zu keiner Hörprobe des Lautsprechers gekommen ist. Im Allgemeinen bin ich mit JBL sehr zufrieden. Hier scheint allerdings die Qualitätskontrolle gänzlich versagt zu haben.

Heb hem net twee dagen en hij doet het nu al niet meer. Heb de zekering er al uit gehaald en een nieuwe ingezet terwijl hij het de eerste keer als ik hem aan zet wel doet maar bij de tweede keer niet.

Hi, Ik wil je aanraden met de subwoofer terug te gaan naar de winkel waar je deze hebt gekocht, of, als je de subwoofer direct bij ons hebt besteld, even contact op te nemen met onze klantenservice

I have an old JBL 12 inch subwoofer. I have the JBL PSW-D112 subwoofer. My subwoofer sounds very good but it’s starting to give out. Does the JBL arena 100p sub sound better or about the same as the JBL PSW-112 subwoofer?

Asked by: JoshM
Hi! The Arena 100P Sub is weaker than the older JBL PSW D112 subwoofer. However, it could still give you a wide range of frequency range and good quality.

I'm a newbie and i wanted to ask want cable to you need such as an aux or what ??

Asked by: adzz
Hi, and thank you for your interest! The signal cable is not included, so you will have to purchase one with the proper length and plug arrangement. If you download the owner's manual from the JBL web shop, on page 3 you will see that there are different cable connections, and that the cable is not included.

I have a 25'x25' room with 12' ceiling. I have 8 ceiling and wall speakers that could use some additional base. Would this 100P sub be adequate.

Asked by: Dhood
Hi! Since you do have 8 speakers inside the room, yes the Arena Sub100P will be sufficient enough to deliver you all the bass frequencies. But if you really want to have that very powerful bass, we would suggest having the Studio SUB260P.

Can I connect my SB400 sound bar or my SB250 sound bar to this subwoofer? How does the wattage on this sub compare to what I have on either of the above models? Is this subwoofer much stronger than what I already have above?

Asked by: AlexB
External wired subwoofers cannot be connected to an SB400 neither a SB250. The Arena Sub 100P does not have a significant difference with the subwoofers of the two mentioned soundbars in terms of power.

Hi.. Can this subwoofer use 240v mains power supply.?

Asked by: Chiri
Hi, It should be able to run in 100-240V areas so there are no issues with plugging it in to a 240V power supply.
