Thank you, JBL!
Since my mother-in-law moved in with us last May, she has pretty much taken over our living room home theater and spends her days getting sloshed on cheap chardonnay while watching TV about 16-18 hours a day. My wife has taken to retreating to our bedroom upstairs to watch TV on the little 26" TV we had up there. So, for Christmas this year I installed a new 55" 4K TV, a 4K upscaling blu ray player, a JBL SB100 sound bar and this fantastic little JBL Arena S10, 100-watt subwoofer in our bedroom. When I demonstrated the new system for my wife, she was amazed by the clarity and the output of the subwoofer, as the floor under her feet thumped and vibrated heavily with sounds of The Band's live concert, "The Last Waltz" blu ray disc that I was using for the demontration. She was concerned that it might be disturbing her mom downstairs while she was watching TV in our living room. My wife went downstairs to check and see how much sound vibration was coming through the bedroom floor/ceiling above the living room and apparently it was thumping pretty good, even at the low volume I had it on. She asked my mother-in-law if it was bothering her, to which my mother-in-law replied in a rather annoyed tone, "Well, if I knew that was going to be going on, I certainly wouldn't be sitting here trying to watch TV!" Mission accomplished. Two birds with one stone/JBL subwoofer. My wife is happily enjoying her new bedroom theater system and my mother-in-law is getting a taste of Karma. Thank you, JBL! Your speakers have NEVER disappointed me.

this thing is AWESOME. My old Radio Shack PSW finally gave up ...
OMG, this thing is AWESOME. My old Radio Shack PSW finally gave up the gohost so decided to treat my bad self to a JBL...hey, cadillac, man. Heavy as hell, bulky. Plugged it in, powered up the Sony 7.1, put on "Tusk" and thanked god I had kept it turned low. My old PSW just kinda thumped, ya know what I mean, Scotty? This think delivered the smoothest, sweetest, most sexy sensual bass to my waiting ears I have ever experienced. The notes danced as they fell upon the floor with unrepentant intent. I got a little brave and cranked it to about 20%. Things on the dining room table shook and my wife screamed "earthquake". Okay, I lied about the last part.
I cannont wait to watch Jurassic Park on this. The T-rex will trully live again.

Excellent subwoofer. This speaker really complements my Boston Acoustic speakers. Like the features. The auto power on/off feature is very handy along with having controls for adjusting the volume and crossover.

Amazing! I cannot believe how much clean not powerful base comes out of this product!

Big bang for the buck!
The sale price I paid for this sub woofer made it a no brainer to replace the Polk Audio item I had that blew out after about 4 years.
This item is a good size, has great power, is easy to connect, and it has phenomenal sound for my home theater set up.
I use it in a large family room with a 5.1 system off of an Onkyo receiver. The bass is just right and is completely omni directional so it shounds great regardless of where it's placed.
Beautiful black finish. Cool trapezoid shape.

but that is expected to deliver such fine quality of sound
Very high quality. Little bulky, but that is expected to deliver such fine quality of sound. Came well packaged and easy to unbox and install. The feel is incredible. Highly recommend especially if you want to transition from 2.0 to 2.1, which is what I had bought this for. Fits my purpose really well

Love it when it turns on
I ordered this when it was the deal of the day. I was super excited to add this to my relatively basic but growing speaker set up. I connected it to a new (<1 year)Yamaha receiver which already had a 2 bookshelf speakers connect to it. The added base was great and I could not have been happier; however, yesterday I returned home from a day at work and the sub would not turn on. I am relatively tech savoy and "research method" minded. I tried multiple outlets and different cords and connections, but nothing fixed the issue. I quick google search suggested that a power capacitor burnt out or perhaps a fuse was blown. All of that circuitry is a bit above my pay grade but 2DayDeliver was quick to send a replacement. This time around I plan being exceptionally diligent on turning the sub off when not in use, which will be a bit cumbersome. The sub as a separate on/off switch than the receiver itself. It also has an auto option (guessing to make the power on/off universal) but it did not do me much good. Maybe I am just dumb and don't deserve bass? Maybe my neighbors broke in and snipped something? I don't know ha
Best of luck
Summary: The sound is INCREDIBLE, if and only if, it turns on.
