Additional Information
What makes you feel the music in a professional venue is the same powerful force that will make you feel it at home: massive amounts of low-frequency bass. Through its light yet rigid PolyPlas™ cone frame, the Studio 550P subwoofer delivers powerful, nearly tangible deep notes and effects that practically lift you out of your seat and tingle your skin. JBL® engineers created the Studio 550P using the same technology that they developed for professional movie theater and concert systems, and optimized it to deliver an astonishingly immersive feeling right in your home.

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 theaters 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-millimeter) transducer mounted inside a rigid yet light PolyPlas™ cast-aluminum 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 center of the experience, right in your living room.
Product Features:
  • 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-millimeter) 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.
  • Sealed enclosure
    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.
  • Forward-firing transducer
    The Studio 550P places you in the center 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.

SUB 550P is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clear and unobtrusive I've been using this sub for several months now and I have really enjoyed it. It is a forward firing sub, which means it isn't just a port pointing into the room, but the whole woofer, which removes some of the tones and 'wooshing.' Frankly, paired with some really wide range towers (like the studio 590s) you might not even notice it is there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT ADDITION TO MY SOUND BAR I purchased this sub to add to my Yamaha YAS-106 sound bar. Had enjoyed the sound bar but was looking for a fuller sound and some effects on movies. I am very pleased with the addition of the JBL sub to my sound bar. It filled out the sound and added the bottom that I was looking for. Simple set up....just plug and play really.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have owned several JBL Sub in the past and this is the best sonically I have ever owned.I have this paired with JBL 580 and the 2.1 stereo sound is superb.They seem to have excellent bulid quality as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great subwoofer! I bought one of these subs for a new home theatre setup. When I tried it out it was great for music but lacking a bit for home theatre for my large living room with high ceilings. I added a second one of these and it now sounds great for movies as well as music. I was originally planning to build a high end subwoofer, but decided to try one of these because it was on sale at a fantastic deal. Even though I bought two of them I spent less at the sale price than I was planning to spend on building a sub. These are very well built with cast basket subwoofers and 1" thick mdf enclosures and weigh about 50 pounds each. If you can get one of these when it's on sale don't hesitate to buy one or maybe two.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great sound! I bought this Sub 550p to replace and existing component and it handles the low bass very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good buy For the price I paid I must say it's a bargain. Had Polk same size and I will say it's heading to the trush.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful Sub Deep, rich base. This sub is a great compliment to smaller box speaker needing something better on the low end.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A lot of bottom end for the buck I have been an avid fan of JBL for almost 40 years, but mainly from the pro side. I am putting together a new home theater and I needed to replace my 10 year old subs. I originally wanted a 15" sub with at least 300 watts but the price of the SUB 550P made it a no brainer, so I bought two to compensate for the smaller size. So far so good.

Looking at the JBL 5.1 wireless system, comes with a 10" Sub. That Sub is Maybe 100W RMS? How does this Sub compares to that one? I assume it is way more power. Is is there a wireless adapter for the 550P so I can use that sub instead?

Asked by: Indiana1965
The Sub 550P is definitely more powerful than the Bar 5.1's subwoofer. Unfortunately The Bar 5.1 can only connect to the subwoofer that it came with and can't be connected to other subwoofers.

Asked by: Retired Johnny
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.

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.

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.

Asked by: Ludog14
Thank you for your inquiry regarding you JBL SUB 550P. If an LFE connector is only option then you connect it to the left line-in connector only. If you requuire further assistance, 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.

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.
