One 12" (300mm) Automotive Subwoofer.
The JBL Arena X is the flagship automotive loudspeaker from the Arena Series. It includes a 25mm (1-inch) beryllium tweeter driven by a powerful neodymium motor structure for the ultimate in lightweight performance. The powerful all-new tweeter and 6th-generation ceramic-coated, cast-aluminum Acoustic Lens waveguide seamlessly integrates with the directivity of the companion midrange drivers resulting in greater efficiency, improved dynamic range, reduced distortion, and increased power handling compared to aluminum or titanium tweeters. Beryllium - Element 4 on the Periodic Table - is a rare earth metal that is renowned for it's remarkable physical properties that make it the ideal material for a high-frequency transducer. Compared to aluminum and titanium tweeter diaphragms, Beryllium offers 4.5 times the stiffness and three times more damping and does so at only half of the weight. Beryllium tweeters are the centerpiece of the ARENA automotive loudspeaker series. The 3.5-inch (90mm) midrange and 6.5-inch (165mm) aluminum basket woofers utilize woven carbon fiber cones for improved performance. The stiff lightweight cones combine with optimized motor magnetics to deliver memorable mid- and low-frequency performance and Specially formulated acoustic adhesive chosen to provide superior strength and sound quality

Impressive power handling
JBL engineers designed the ARENA X subwoofer to produce uncompromising, mammoth bass from an amplifier capable of delivering up to 1,600 watts of power. Nothing else even comes close.
The powerful 2.5-inch voice coil is suspended in a separate magnetic gap. At low power, the coil drives the cone, canceling any non-linearities. As input increases, the coil continues to drive the cone for incredible power handling.
Die-cast, vented aluminum frame
This sub’s aluminum frame features significant venting and heatsink fins to add power handling. And since aluminum is a rigid material, it keeps the critical voice-coil components in perfect alignment while they travel through the linear excursion range.
Aluminum woofer cone and dust cap
Aluminum is well known for being lightweight yet extremely stiff, making it the ideal cone material to move large amounts of air without flex or distortion.
NBR (nitrile butadiene rubber) surround
The JBL ARENA X uses a single-piece NBR surround seal between the front and back – an essential design feature considering the enclosure’s high-pressure level. NBR is known to be a tough industrial, environmentally stable material, allowing your sub to perform optimally whether it’s Winter or Summer.
The progressive spider allows the cone to move easily under any reasonable excursion conditions, resulting in a more musical experience from your subwoofer.
