HARMAN has added its JBL Series II Subwoofers, JBL Series II Enclosures and JBL BassPro SL to its existing fleet of subwoofers. And for your parties, the JBL Xtreme is a new wireless portable speaker that combines wide-ranging features with performance. The new subwoofers are engineered with easy installation options for music enthusiasts looking to build and deliver the best bass solutions for their vehicle. They are designed with Harman’s Selectable Smart Impedance (SSI) technology to enable users and installers to select the appropriate impedance based on system design and performance requirements. This, coupled with additional technologies including stitched-in tinsel leads, vented frames and high–roll surrounds, make Series II great performers.
Thanks to the company’s Slipstream Port design, the JBL Series II Enclosures deliver enhanced efficiency and higher output of a vented enclosure without the distracting noise generated by a port. Additionally, JBL’s Selectable Smart Impedance Technology provides desirable impedances (2 and 4 ohms) at the flip of a switch, allowing these enclosures to work with nearly every system design and amplifier.
The JBL Bass Pro SL is a self-powered, under the seat subwoofer system designed to take low-end bass performance in vehicles from good to exceptional with its 125-watt digital amplification. With its small footprint, BassPro SL will easily fit under the seat of most vehicles. It is also designed to work in both factory and aftermarket systems allowing the addition of bass to virtually any vehicle.

- JBL Series II Enclosures - The Slipstream design is engineered to keep airflow within the port turbulence free and avoid common noisy, inarticulate bass when driven hard.
