INTRODUCTION
JBL® SUB10 Powered Subwoofer
For more than 60 years, JBL has been providing audio equipment to concert
halls, recording studios and movie theaters around the world, and has become
the hands-down choice of leading recording artists and sound engineers.
SUB
RIGHTCHANNEL
SPEAKER
With the JBL Venue™ Series, innovative technologies such as titaniumlaminate-dome tweeters, EOS™ waveguides and PolyPlas™ transducer
reinforcement are available to you. Enjoy!
Unpacking the Subwoofer
If you suspect damage from transit, report it immediately to your dealer. Keep
the shipping carton and packing materials for future use.
PLACEMENT
Since the installation of a subwoofer can be somewhat more complicated than
installation of full-range speakers, it is essential that you read this section very
carefully prior to connecting the subwoofer to your system. Should you have
questions relating to your installation, it is advisable to call either your dealer
or JBL’s Customer Service Department for advice.
The performance of the subwoofer is directly related to its placement in the
listening room and how you align the subwoofer with its satellite speakers.
Setting the volume of the subwoofer in relationship to the left and right speakers
is also of critical importance because it is essential that the subwoofer integrate smoothly with the entire system. Setting the subwoofer’s volume level
too high will result in overpowering, boomy bass. Setting the volume level too
low will negate the benefits of the subwoofer.
PRIMARY
LISTENING
AREA
Figure 1. This example shows the subwoofer positioned behind the
right-channel satellite speaker to re-create the actual location of
bass instruments in an orchestra and/or add impact to
movie soundtracks.
Here are several additional facts on installation that may prove useful.
It is generally believed by most audio authorities that low frequencies (below
125Hz) are nondirectional and, therefore, placement of a subwoofer within any
listening room is not critical. While in theory it is true that the larger wavelengths of extremely low frequencies are basically nondirectional, the fact is
that, when installing a subwoofer within the limited confines of a room, reflections, standing waves and absorptions generated within the room will strongly
influence the performance of any subwoofer system. As a result, specific
location of the subwoofer becomes important, and we strongly recommend
that you experiment with placement before choosing a final location.
Placement will depend upon your room and the amount and quality of bass
required (for example, whether or not your room permits placement of the
subwoofer near either satellite).

OPERATION
MAINTENANCE AND SERVICE
Power On
Plug your subwoofer’s AC cord into a wall outlet. Do not use the outlets on the
back of the receiver.
Initially set the Subwoofer-Level Control ¢ to the “min” position.
The enclosure may be cleaned using a soft cloth to remove fingerprints or to
wipe off dust.
Turn on your sub by pressing the Power Switch ª on the rear panel.
All wiring connections should be inspected and cleaned or remade periodically.
The frequency of maintenance depends on the metals involved in the connections,
atmospheric conditions and other factors, but once per year is the minimum.
Turn on your entire audio system and start a CD or movie soundtrack at a
moderate level.
Auto On/Standby
With the Power Switch ª in the “on” position, the Power Indicator LED ∞
will remain backlit in red or green to indicate the On/Standby mode of the
subwoofer.
RED = STANDBY (No signal detected, Amp Off)
GREEN = ON (Signal detected, Amp On)
When the Auto Switch § is in the “auto” position, the subwoofer will automatically enter the Standby mode after approximately 10 minutes when no signal is detected from your system. The subwoofer will then power ON instantly
when a signal is detected. During periods of normal use, the Power Switch ª
may be left on. You may turn off the Power Switch ª for extended periods of
non-operation, e.g., when you are away on vacation. If the Auto Switch § is in
the “on” position, the subwoofer will remain on.
Adjust Gain
Turn your Subwoofer-Level Control ¢ up to the halfway position. If no sound
emanates from the subwoofer, check the AC-line cord and input cables. Are the
connectors on the cables making proper contact? Is the AC plug connected to
a “live” receptacle? Has the Power Switch ª been pressed to the “on” position? Once you have confirmed that the subwoofer is active, proceed by playing a CD, record or cassette. Use a selection that has ample bass information.
Set the overall volume control of the preamplifier or stereo to a comfortable
level. Adjust the Subwoofer-Level Control ¢ until you obtain a pleasing blend
of bass. Bass response should not overpower the room but rather be adjusted
so there is a harmonious blend across the entire musical range. Many users
have a tendency to set the subwoofer volume too loud, adhering to the belief
that a subwoofer is there to produce lots of bass. This is not entirely true. A
subwoofer is there to enhance bass, extending the response of the entire system so the bass can be felt as well as heard. However, overall balance must
be maintained or the music will not sound natural. An experienced listener will
set the volume of the subwoofer so its impact on bass response is always
there but never obtrusive.
Phase Control
The Phase Switch ¶ determines whether the subwoofer speaker’s pistonlike
action moves in and out with the main speakers, 0˚, or opposite the main
speakers, 180˚. Proper phase adjustment depends on several variables such
as room size, subwoofer placement and listener position. Adjust the Phase
Switch to ¶ maximize bass output at the listening position.
Crossover Adjustment
The Crossover Adjustment Control • determines the highest frequency at
which the subwoofer reproduces sounds. If your main speakers can comfortably
reproduce some low-frequency sounds, set this control to a lower frequency
setting, between 50Hz and 100Hz. This will concentrate the subwoofer’s
efforts on the ultradeep bass sounds required by today’s films and music.
If you are using smaller bookshelf speakers that do not extend to the lower
bass frequencies, set the Crossover Adjustment Control • to a higher setting,
between 120Hz and 150Hz.
NOTE: This control will have no effect if the LFE/Input ™ is used. If you have
a Dolby Digital or DTS processor/receiver, the low-pass frequency is set by the
processor/receiver. Consult your owner’s manual to learn how to view or
change this setting.

The grille may be gently vacuumed. Stains may be removed with an aerosol
cleaner, following its instructions. Do not use any solvents on the grille.
If a problem occurs, make sure that all connections are properly made and
clean. If a problem exists in one loudspeaker, reverse the connection wires to
the left and right system. If the problem remains in the same speaker, then the
fault is with the loudspeaker. If the problem appears in the opposite speaker,
the cause is in another component or cable. In the event that your subwoofer
ever needs service, contact your local JBL dealer or www.jbl.com for a service center near you.
