Product Actions
Muscular sound from a 10" (250mm) subwoofer with built-in 300W RMS amplifier.

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 theatres 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-millimetre) transducer mounted inside a rigid yet light PolyPlas™ cast-aluminium 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 centre of the experience, right in your living room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Ordered this shortly before Christmas and it is the best Sub I’ve ever had. Still getting it dialed in but love it so far. It arrived in 2 days since paying $10 for air shipping was too cheap an option to pass up on. Too soon to tell on the durability but value for money was amazing for the sale price I picked it up at.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sub! I bought the sub at a JBL sale more than 50% off. Really great value for the money.

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.

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.

Is this model the studio version or a different version. In the description the term studio 550p is used several times but in the title of the item on this page it doesn’t say it’s the studio version 

Asked by: LCS369
The Sub 550PBK is the same as the Studio Sub 550P.

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.

My 550p sub doesn’t seem to go onto stand by mode even after turning off my amplifier for a long time. It produces very light humming sound. So I have to turn power off on my sub every time when finish playing. Any suggestions?
