JBL Arena 12 Arena Series 12" component subwoofer with 2- or 4-ohm selectable impedance

Product description

The voice of experience

For over 70 years JBL has brought its experience and expertise to bear in fields ranging from home entertainment to stadium systems, and car audio is no exception. Their Arena subwoofers' innovative features and proprietary design puts them at the top of their class.

Wiring flexibility

Arena subs feature JBL's patented Selectable Smart Impedance (SSI) technology. You can choose 2-ohm or 4-ohm impedance with the flip of a switch, giving you an easy way to configure the Arena for your changing needs as you expand your system. Its dual 2.5" voice coils are suspended in separate magnetic gaps, allowing them to apply extra force at low and high sound levels. A vented pole piece helps dissipate heat when the sub is working hard.

The cone zone

The Arena uses JBL's proprietary Symmetrical Field Geometry design to ensure accuracy at any volume level. The sub's composite paper cone and nitrile butadiene rubber surround punch out the lows with accuracy and power, while the vented cast-aluminum frame dissipates the heat generated when the sub is rocking. A progressive spider helps the cone bear up under the load and keep things on track.    

Plenty of power

And when we say "power," we mean 800 watts RMS (2400 watts peak), so be sure to feed this sub with an amplifier that can drive it to its fullest extent. Its gold-plated terminal binding posts make sure that all the signal gets to the speaker so you get all the output you're sending to the speaker. So crank it up, and enter the Arena for an audio experience like no other.
