Product Information

JBL Synthesis loudspeaker systems take control of your emotions and don’t let go. Leveraging leading-edge acoustic technology and a pedigree that can only come from more than seven decades of leadership in sound reproduction, JBL Synthesis systems are among the most powerful, capable, and vivid instruments in home theater and entertainment.

Part of the JBL Synthesis Subwoofer series, the SSW-2 is an ultra-high-performance passive subwoofer acoustically designed to complement any of the JBL Synthesis Custom Loudspeakers (SCL series) as part of a complete JBL Synthesis solution. The SSW-2 features dual 12-inch (300mm) cast-frame, composite cone woofers, each with massive 4-inch (100mm) voice coils for total system power handling of 1200W RMS. Cabinet tuning is via dual front-firing tuned ports featuring JBL’s patented Slipstream™ contouring for incredibly low-noise performance. The robust enclosure is constructed from a minimum 1-inch (25mm) MDF with extensive internal v-bracing and includes a steel-frame, magnetically attached cloth grille. The configuration of the enclosure allows it to be positioned vertically or laid on its side horizontally for tremendous placement flexibility in applications including built-in, behind screen, or in-room. The SSW-2 delivers powerful, dynamic, and accurate bass response in medium to large-sized rooms.
