JimboSpins's review"Go JBL!"

The JBL JRX 118S is a passive subwoofer that has a clean sound in almost any room size. I would crank this subwoofer up in many different spaces and would get zero distortion or muddy sounding bass. This is the subwoofer line from JBL that originally made me fall in love with their subs in the first place, the JRX line of subs was a way to get a great sounding bass without having to spend a ton of money on a subwoofer. That was back in companies like Mackie where overcharging for quality subwoofers and it was hard to find one that was good without breaking your whole budget on one.
These subs are built to take a beating; I still own mine and though I do not use it anymore I will never get rid of it because it symbolized how hard I use to have to work. I would take this sub with me everywhere when I was first starting out as a DJ and stage manager for other bands that needed me.
The sound of this sub is very clean, the low tones are full and rich and when you use it with some good speakers it will just complete the sound and work for any style of music. This woofer has never given a single issue. After using it for all of those years, it never had a single problem and that is generally what you get with JBL. You will get a good quality piece of gear from them all of the time. This JRX118S is the reason that I have purchased so many other woofers from JBL. You can get 1400 watts of peak power out of this woofer and 350 at continuous use. I am very happy that I purchased this woofer years ago, and I am even happier that I didn’t get rid of it and still own it!

I tested these boxes on a weekend instead of my Yamaha 118 SW. To summarize, the most are:
- Small footprint
- Performance far exceeds 101 db / w / m instead of 96 dB / W / m
- Supports the drills without snapping power amp

- Does not drop enough in frequency, 55 Hz (double max) instead of 30 Hz for SW118. You feel well on the reggae and zouk
- HP 4 ohms which requests the amp a little harder.

I use it for about 6 months like the clutter reduced.
I do 350watt power it all! it saturates rapidemmant enough and do not fall in the low and the xmax is ridiculous that's what the snaps no protection circuit or filter it directly with the cable walkman lol! seriously I think it was the 0.75 mm ², which is principally not recommended for big bass reinforcement.

except for a small type unstall small bars or the restaurant can do it but if it is not strong

I do not refer the same choice in the range JRX tapper it wrong in the other range (eon the great work! mp; VRX; range thx etc) very disappointed with JBL! for about € 500
