Additional Information
Flawless bass. Undistorted luxury. Full-on masterpiece. No self-respecting 10-piece series of luxury loudspeakers could ever call itself flawless without having groundbreaking bass. That’s why we built the SUB 250P powered subwoofer as part of our new JBL® Studio 2 Series. Along with its dynamic cousin, the 12” SUB260P, the SUB 250P is engineered to add faultless, deep-penetrating bass into whatever music, movie, portable device, or game console you’re listening to at any given moment. With its 10” PolyPlas low-frequency transducer, its 200-watt Class D high-efficiency built-in amplifier, and its rear-firing Slipstream bass port providing backbone clarity, all that’s left for you to do is kick back, relax, and enjoy all the unmatched mix of rawness meets refinement. Add to that its sleek, clean, well-chiseled outward design and you’ll be the first to admit - we’ve created yet another powered subwoofer that looks and sounds every inch the JBL champion.

  • 200-watt Class-D high-efficiency amplifier features unobtrusive rear-mounted inputs and controls for easy set-up and system integration

Raw bass power – refined to perfection. 67 years in the making, we can safely admit it: we’ve pulled off another loudspeaker series that's powerful, precise, and hedonistically refined. It's our new 10-piece JBL® Studio 2 Series. And we never could have done it without engineering something as undeniably as our SUB 250P powered subwoofer. Tested relentlessly in our JBL sound lab – the most accurate of its kind in the world – as well as pitted against competitors in real world comparative listening studies, we’ve created a powered subwoofer that others can only hope to catch up with – but never measure up to. With a hair-raising 10” PolyPlas low-frequency transducer powered by a 200-watt Class-D high-efficiency amplifier, along with a rear-firing Slipstream bass port that goes beyond anything you’ve ever heard when it comes to undistorted opulence of sound, your ears will be confounded by the richness and rawness of tight, fast attack bass with flawless harmonic overtones and natural note decay. And with signature touches like luxurious gloss black paneling, solid cabinet construction with soft-rounded edges and no visible fasteners, and a choice of either a Black or Espresso woodgrain finish, we’ve done for the eyes what our bass has done for the ears. We’ve combined the power and precision of high-tech audio with the sleek urbanity of “it-factor” design. For those able to hear the truth, we’re confident you’ll know the difference just by listening.

Studio SUB 250P is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sub! I've been running two of these units for several months now off of my Onkyo TX-NR737 receiver and they sound great. My main towers are L880s, the rear surrounds are L820s, and you just can't beat the sound. JBL has always made great speakers and these are no exception. Well worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Sub Gotta admit, this is a pretty nice sub. I purchased an SVS sub and it sounded terrible, it did nothing but vibrate and rumble (that's great if that's what your into). Not me I like a sub that thumps when it is supposed too. This JBL gives me both thunder and bass not just rumbling and vibration. Its a keeper for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Added to an amp to pair with ceiling speakers the sound is complete now with the deep base this sub adds. Thumbs up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful and elegant This is a great subwoofer. It puts out a lot of deep, solid, tight bass with virtually no muddiness. As with any sub, placement is key to performance. I have mine positioned as close to a corner as I can. I have it matched with JBL's Studio 2 Series 290 dual 8" floor standing towers and together it's a powerful combination. This sub looks fantastic; very elegant. The moment I took it out of the box the quality was evident. For a mid-range sub, I doubt you could find a better one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not for the average... ...only a TRUE AUDIOPHILE can appreciate the function of this component. The purpose, element of this component has been developed and designed 40 years ago...but only applied to the present day with finer cabinet materials and a sturdier voice coil as apposed to decades ago ...GOOD JOB - JBL. A FINE piece of furniture too, and an OVERWHELMING sound support to those who have a REAL-STEREO component system who like me, who KNOW WHAT LISTENING TO QUALITY is, as best recorded through the years...take your time and adjust the level and the crossover function to your taste...I am floored at the depth this adds to the material I listen to. This "sub-woofer" IS NOT for everyone; only those who know how to appreciate what sound STILL CAN BE and IS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Absolute Engineering Masterpiece I just received this unit and it is absolutely gorgeous. I almost feel as if my furniture doesn't measure up! This subwoofer has got to be one of the best in the industry and it has all of the latest and greatest features. The bass is tight, crisp and authoritative without the unwanted distortion. I have heard the truth and I love it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not enough punch Thought this unit would hit harder, only hits good with bass boost on [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Date published: 2017-05-04
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the $$ Had this sub for a month or so it has no punch without the ext bass on thought I was upgrading to a more powerful sub but my 100 watt sub hits a lot harder than this unit very dissatisfied so now I'm running both my subs thought I would be able to get rid of the old one with the rating in this one guess not

I have 2 JBL flips can I hook this subwoofer up to those? Is there any subwoofer that will hook up to those speakers to enrich the sound? I am trying to make an in-home sound system and don't want to have to buy new speakers.

Asked by: Missyjo
Unfortunately the subwoofer requires to be plugged in to work. The Flip cannot be connected to these subwoofers since they are mainly used as bluetooth speakers.

I have found that the front screen rattles/ vibrates when playing certain music, is there any solution to this problem? Sometimes it happens when the music is not very loud. When the screen is off it sounds perfect though?

Asked by: Chris16
The grill is loose on the SUB250P when it rattles. Make sure that the grill is tightly fit on the SUB250P. If this doesn't help, please submit a case at www.jbl.com/support-contact.html and the Customer Service team will be more than happy to further assist you.

Hi.can i connect this sub to my eon206p?

Asked by: Rockrhyan
Yes, there is a way to make both of these powered speaker work together but it will be complicated and require additional equipment. We recommend using a JBL Pro powered subwoofer with your EON 206P, it will perform and sound much better.

Hello can you hook this up with the cinemabase

Asked by: SKBC
The CINEMA BASE already has its own Sub-woofer system built into it and it does not have any ports available for connecting an external Sub woofer like the SUB 250P.

Hello! 1) Does lfe title in crossover knob mean bypass sub crossover? 2) How crossover settings affects LFE channel? Does 80 Hz crossover setting in the sub really truncate LFE channel to 80 Hz? config: sub in: LFE. receiver out: LFE + L/R.  Thanks.

Asked by: CuriousCustomer
If you are connecting the SUB to the LFE output of your receiver/amp you would need to set the knob/switch all the way to max which is marked LFE to bypass the crossover in the SUB. If your connection is by way of line level/preamp out(L/R), you would need to set the crossover switch of the sub wo what is setup on your receiver/amp. For example, your receiver/amp is set to 50Hz for the sub settings, then you would need to set the sub to 50Hz as well for it to receive 50Hz and below audio frequency only.
