Bass that rises to any occasion
No self-respecting 10-piece series of loudspeakers would call itself unrivaled without packing unbeatable bass. With the SUB 260P powered subwoofer as part of our new JBL® Studio 2 Series, it’s time we called it a day and claimed victory. Alongside its dynamic cousin, the 10” SUB 250P, the SUB 260P is engineered to add faultless, deep-penetrating bass into whatever music, movie, portable device, or game console you’re listening to at any given moment. With its 12” PolyPlas low-frequency transducer, its 300-watt Class D high-efficiency built-in amplifier, and its rear-firing Slipstream bass port that provides unyielding clarity, all that’s left for you to do is kick back, relax, and enjoy the final word in acoustics. Combine this with the SUB 260P’s sleek, clean design and you’ll be the first to admit - we’ve created a powered subwoofer that defines – and commands – its era.
At a Glance:
300-watt Class-D high-efficiency amplifier features unobtrusive rear-mounted inputs and controls for easy set-up and system integration
12” PolyPlas low-frequency transducer for tight, extended bass response
Sophisticated 21st century visual design features that can’t fail to seduce
What's in the Box:
- 12” PolyPlas low-frequency transducer for tight, extended bass response
- Envision flawless JBL sound seducing your ears – bass so tight that every note is held to its proper duration, and with all the right harmonic overtones. Picture this, and then listen to the Studio SUB 260P’s 12” PolyPlas transducer. Hear any difference between your imagination and reality? We didn’t think so.
- 300-watt Class-D high-efficiency amplifier features unobtrusive rear-mounted inputs and controls for easy set-up and system integration
- Not only is the SUB 260P’s 300-watt amplifier a powerhouse in the realm of home entertainment, but it’s also one of the smartest. Its Class-D energy rating allows the amplifier to cool itself naturally – saving it from danger of burnout – and saving you from a higher electric bill. Its rear-mounted inputs and controls allow for discrete, easy set-up and integration with other loudspeakers in the Studio 2 Series.
- Sophisticated 21st century visual design features that can’t fail to seduce
- The JBL way is to make it look as good as it sounds. And with our Studio SUB 260P, we’ve made no exception. With its 21st century elegance – including a solid cabinet construction with no visible fasteners, softly rounded edges, a gloss black top panel, and a customized soft-touch paint scheme – we’ve built something that seduces your eye as much as your ear.

A new bass-line has been set in audio performance.
67 years in the making, we can safely admit it: we’ve pulled off another loudspeaker series that's powerful, precise, or hedonistically refined. It is our new 10-piece JBL® Studio 2 Series. And we never could have done it without engineering the likes of our new SUB 260P powered subwoofer. Tested relentlessly in the world’s finest sound research lab – our own – as well as pitted against competitors in real world comparative listening studies, we’ve created a powered subwoofer that leaves all others behind.
An era-defining 12” PolyPlas low-frequency transducer powered by a 300-watt Class-D high-efficiency amplifier delivers sound that’s indisputably pure and potent. A rear-firing Slipstream bass port goes beyond anything you’ve ever heard before when it comes to undistorted opulence of sound. And your ears will be confounded by the richness and rawness of tight, accurate bass complete with flawless harmonic overtones and natural note decay. With signature touches like luxurious gloss black paneling, solid cabinet construction with soft-rounded edges and no visible fasteners, and a choice of either a Black or an Espresso woodgrain finish, will do for your eyes what our bass will do for your ears.
We’ve combined the power and precision of high-tech audio with the sleek urbanity of “it-factor” design. For those able to hear the truth, we’re confident you’ll hear it at first listen.

Studio SUB 260P is rated
Rated 5 out of
Received my Sub yesterday, wanted one of these for ages and not disappointed, it is truly awesome. Massive power hardly need volume more than around 1/3 setting. It has a base boost setting but cannot imagine why. Hearing sounds from films and music videos I have never heard before. If you want some real grunt and power to your system you cannot go wrong with this sub. My only real grip is that having only received it yesterday it has now been reduced in price by almost £50, gutted. I was about to buy the Studio bookshelf speakers to compliment this sub and replace my Control Ones but wary may be jumping too soon now if more price reductions round the corner, maybe JBL can do me deal as a measure of good will?

Discontinued and Disappointed
Buyers beware, this sub is currently discontinued! This subwoofer was discontinued by JBL Harman less than a year after I purchased it. The board randomly went out on mine, just after the warranty period expired. Even though I was disappointed to discover the warranty period was short, compared to their competitors, I was willing to pay to fix it myself. Since this product is discontinued, parts are no longer available. I am left with a useless sub now.

Great Deep Bass Sound!
I bought this Subwoofer about 2 weeks and half ago. I am extremely happy with the sound. Also, this Subwoofer was on sale, so I liked the price as well.

Just hooked mine up to compliment my JBL towers and Harmon Kardon Reciever. The towers are top of the line and my last sub couldn't play loud and clear enough to keep up with them. Not an issue anymore.

I purchased this sub a week ago and I'm totally satisfied; it performs just how you would expect from a subwoofer: powerfully and deeply even at low volumes, filling the room with its presence. Probably my choice couldn't have been better!

Love this sub, it makes enough bass that it vibrates my drywall. Make sure when you buy it though, that you move it around the room to find the best position for it.

Ik heb een studio met 2 JBL 4412A met E250P sub.. prima sound.
In mijn living heb ik 2 JBL TI5000 maar hier mis ik het echte laag. Ik ben dus op zoek naar een subwoofer en twijfel tussen 260P en 560P.. die gaat tot 22hz !
Bedankt voor je vraag. Helaas kunnen we je hier niet bij helpen via onze website. De JBL Studio 260P is een subwoofer bedoeld voor thuisgebruik. Deze kunnen we niet vergelijken met produkten die onder JBL / Harman Professional vallen. Jouw 4400 series speakers, als ook de SUB 560P zijn PRO produkten, en het is voor ons heel lastig aan te geven welke het beste passen bij jouw wensen. Ik wil je verzoeken even per email of telefoon contact met onze klantenservice op te nemen, zodat we je kunnen doorverwijzen naar de distributeur van PRO produkten in Belgie/Nederland, zij zullen je het beste kunnen adviseren.

The Studio Sub 260P replaces the Studio Sub 250P and not the ES 250 P.

The ES250P has an RMS wattage rating of 400 watts while the SUB 260P has 300 watts. You should be able to match the levels without any issues.
