While receiving a 4.7/5 star rating from only 7 Amazon customers, most user reports suggest this JBL sub is capable of filling their car with deep, solid and distortion-free sub tones once paired up with an enclosure and an amp system:
You’ll find a wide selection of enclosures on Amazon and a good place to start is #1 Best Selling 12-inch option from Bbox Pro which is currently available for $41.90 shipped (orig. $110, within about $5 of the lowest we’ve seen). As for amps, Kenwood and Pioneer both make great options, but the $55, #1 Best Selling Boss R1100M Riot amp is currently 59% off (within $7 of lowest) and has a 4.3/5 star rating from over 580 customers.
More from JBL:
The JBL CS1214 CS Series Subwoofer also features a progressive spider, which provides better control at excursion limits than does a linear spider; the benefit is reduced distortion at high output levels. This subwoofer exhibits high efficiency and reproduces powerful bass, even in combination with small amplifiers.
