Product Information

Fits in More Vehicles

The major thing that sets the JBL CLUBWS1200 12” car audio subwoofer apart from the pack is its shallow-mount design. Not only does this encroach less into your vehicle’s available space, it also allows the subwoofer to sit in tight places; like behind a seat in a single-cab truck, for example. Not many subwoofers are capable of this feat, nor do they sound as good. Add this shallow-mount subwoofer to your vehicle’s audio system and feel what you’ve been missing.

Built to Last

Let’s face it: a lot of people buy a subwoofer to play it loudly. Why choose a subwoofer built from inferior materials when you can own a legendary JBL Club subwoofer? The cone of this subwoofer is made of polypropylene which is designed to perform well in all environments and the rugged surround is made up of a durable rubber which will last for years to come. Buy once by buying right.

Selectable Smart Impedance™

This JBL car subwoofer offers a very unique feature: you can select either a 2- or 4-ohm impedance by simply flipping a switch on the subwoofer. This is a proprietary technology from Harman and has found its way into the CLUB-series subwoofers. Why is this a good thing? Well, depending on you subwoofer setup (as in maybe you are using a single subwoofer or maybe more than one), you can change the amount of power that your subwoofer amplifier is putting out. This allows you to get the best-possible sound and volume from your investment.

Allow Us To Suggest…

To properly power this subwoofer (assuming you are using only a single CLUBWS1200 subwoofer in your setup), we would recommend a single-channel (or monoblock) amplifier that is stable at 4 ohms. Ideally, the power output of this amplifier at 4 ohms would be around 250 watts.

CLUBWS1200 Highlights:

  • Shallow-mount design to allow it to fit into more vehicles
  • Selectable impedance for maximum power extraction from your amplifier
  • Polypropylene woofer cone that has been tested thoroughly for reliability
  • Durable rubber surround for long-lasting performance
  • Warranty: 1 year
  • Included: World Wide Stereo 60-day guarantee and expert product support

Excellent Unit
I used to do pro concert audio about 20 years ago. We were mostly using EV, Celestion and Peavey. A local distributor started importing JBL and their power and clarity for size ratio was very impressive. They were a bit costly at the time though.
I recently had the desire to upgrade my vehicle audio. The JBL speaker units were affordable and so I gave them a try.

Brilliant speaker. It's an auto speaker so the sensitivity is less than a pro unit which would be around 100 - 103dB, but I am really impressed. I put a single unit in the boot in a sealed enclosure and it fills the car completely: Tucson SUV.

I used a sealed, off-the-shelf product - yes, I used to tune all my cabinets to the TS parameters - but I don't have the tools or the workspace for it at the moment so I had to settle.

27Hz is low, and even in a shallow, closed cabinet it reproduces the low B (31Hz) of an electric bass or double bass consistently and clearly. The only issue is the speaker diaphragm displacement. I can't find the exact excursions limits but on the kick drum and low-end chords it is significant. So significant in fact that that the sealed cabinet actually 'kicks back'. It bottoms out in the cabinet and 'flaps'. But, that's not the driver's issue - it's an asset - it's a cabinet issue.

I plan to purchase another unit, and get the fitment centre to put the two into a reflex-type enclosure. I'm leaning towards a 6th order bandpass but I haven't done the calculations yet, so that may change.

Highly recommend the unit.

Perfect for any size car
Put this in a sealed enclosure running a much higher rated amp that what the sub can handle. Turned down the gain to match it up, ran the sub in nicely and it is working amazingly. Especially since I'm running a single 12" in a sealed box in what is effectively a station wagon. The OHM switch is an amazing feature that makes life much easier and so much quicker to do an install.

Great value
I put 1 12 in my 2008 GMC crew cab in .85 cu. ft. box on 750 watts and it slams. I was very surprised by the sound quality. It doesn't sound like a flat woofer!!!!

Van-Shaking Bass!
Bought one of these for my VW T4 van. Built a sealed enclosure for it and it sounds incredible. Bass is van shaking and goes really well with my JBL GTO 6x9s. Great for adding some extra kick to older styles of music and even better for adding some thunder in genres like Drum and Bass!
