JBL JRX 118S 18” Compact Subwoofer Reviews
This sub is great if you have at least two. Sensitivity and response are as good as you can expect at this price range. Unfortunately it\'s true that it doesn\'t go as deep as you would expect, but given the size of the cabinet and the price, it doesn\'t do a bad job, especially for live sound applications where a clear punchy bass is more valuable than ultra-deep bass.
To summarise; A good value rumble box.
Well, I\'m going to keep this one short... I\'ve had the chance to hear a lot of PA kit in my time and I try not to favour one brand over the other. I think each one has their pro\'s and cons.
Well firstly the JBL fits in well with smaller loudspeakers because of it\'s upper bass response. So it suits smaller full range speakers in your PA set-up. Thats great if you carry smaller PA speakers as mains.
Where I did find they go wrong is, they don\'t go as deep as you\'d normally expect from an 18\" bin. However it does offer a more musical sound than some bass bins.
As for power, this is more for smaller rooms. It really is only capable of what it says on the tin, I wouldn\'t listen to the Peak rating as it doesn\'t like a big QSC PL380 amp at all and I would say at maximum power it with 400 watts with give and take a few tens of watts for overhead.
It\'s not that bad, but I just found it weak in my application - but I\'m sure it has it\'s place for others. It sounds good for a smaller venue.
