Bottom Line:   
There are much better choices out there for small subs than this one. Steer clear!
It cannot reproduce bass guitar notes with anything approaching fidelity. I played bass guitar for a few years so I know how it should sound.

For HT it gets confused in dynamic passages and simply lets out a booming sound to approximate sound reproduction. It cannot keep up in dynamic passages in HT or music.

I bought this sub thinking it would go well with my 4 E50 bookshelf speakers, which are a great sounding speaker, so I'm not anti JBL,

JBL rates this sub down to 27hz but I'd call that a stretch. Using a program called Audacity I was able to determine the lowest frequency this sub could reliably hit. 34hz and it bottoms out, db drops off rapidly from there and is nearly inaudible at 27hz. Not much lower than some very good tower speakers can do. Perhaps I have a bad example? I've had 2 of these so far, had to send the first one back when it died. The replacement does the same performance wise.

Bottom Line:   
Plenty of power even though the woofer is not that tight the bass is very punchy. Great on most types of music I listen to anthing from easy listening to spanish instrumental and this sub has not disappointed me yet.
