stompboxjon's review"Inexpensive and great low end"

JBL Control SB-2
The JBL Control SB 2 is a vented bypass subwoofer that works with the JBL control contractor series systems. The weight of this woofer is around 42 pounds and that is pretty standard with the size and weight of other subwoofers that I have used over the years. It has spring loaded terminals (input) and 8 ohms per each channel. It has a peek capacity of 340 watts (power). The frequency range goes down to 38 Hz to help with some of the JBL systems that do not extend that low. Depending on which JBL system you have, this is a must have because a lot of them do not have that low end bass.
This is probably the best woofer to go with for the price (only for JBL systems though) because the sound and low end is perfect for the price. I have used other woofers in this price range that do no sound as full and rich as the Control SB 2 does.


I have used this woofer in many clubs/venues and it has not let me down yet. It is very durable and even sounds great outside in a wide open space. Having a woofer will make your sound system sound so much fuller and bigger.


When using this woofer outside really added some much needed low end to one of our JBL system. This woofer has 2 stereo inputs. There are other woofers that sound great too, but they are not made for JBL systems. The Bose B1 and B2 woofers are great too depending on what your system is. JBL systems have always been my favorite though. There is another woofer called the JRX118S that is made by JBL that is very good as well but it cost more than the Control SB 2. If you have more money to spend check out the JRX118S, you will not be disappointed.
