100w is not enough for a medium sized room and up.

It's not going to be near as weather resistant as car audio subs and it's power input would require an ac to DC converter.

You can get something better that's meant for cars like this powered Rockford Fosgate 10.

I am looking forward to get a small sub and was looking forward to the Polk and Monoprice offerings in the same price range. I value JBL brand over those but this does not have speaker level inputs which I really wanted to try. Wondering which would be a better choice...

I'm wondering the same. I can get a Poll PSW10 for around $40 on CL right now, but I'd rather just buy a good sub the first time around.

i picked up one of these jbl s10 subs from woot.com about 6 months ago for $99 plus $5 shipping brand new (silver logos and grilles), so not sure why this is a deal at all. I wasn't impressed personally and unloaded it on craigslist for $80 after about a month. 100 watts rms isn't much and the sub really wasn't powerful enough for the medium sized room i had it in. any chance this is a newer model of the s10 or this the same one i bought from woot? specs are identical.........

You should go for a 12 with 200+ watts. That's good for most living rooms. More surface area equals more air movement which equals more bass.

thanks for the tip, but this isn't my first time. i have had an svs pc12-nsd in my living room for a couple of years and have owned dozens of entry/mid level subs in various other applications in my homes. i wasn't asking advice, i was asking why anyone gives a crap about a mediocre 10" jbl sub for $139 that was $99 for months at woot.

Then why buy it in the first place if it's not your first time and you have owned "dozens".

Just trying to be helpful. Next time give some "expert" advice instead of bitching.

As long as that Polk works, it will definitely be better bang for the buck. That's not saying much. Either could be fine in a small room, but neither would blow you away.

I don't like that JBL arena series at all. Specs are par for course on mass marketed HTIB subs. I also don't like JBL subs, and have had bad luck with them over the years. Idk why JBL did this except to make a quick buck off people who don't research.

JBL S-10
10" (250mm) Polycellulose Low-Frequency Woofer
Good starting size for ported HT sub.

Power: 100W RMS (200W Dynamic)
100 is kinda wimpy, and may be optimistic in their rating.

Frequency Response: 41Hz – 150Hz
This could cut it for most music as far as how low it plays, but will really struggle with movies. Either way it's not a musical sub, or a real home theater sub.

Weight is most telling at 27.6 pounds. Thin MDF, small motor, weak amp, or all three.

So this is ok for a first sub in a small room. It will add some bass, but for $60 more, you can get that much better Klipsch sub at Frys. You can also find much better subs used for this price.

Thanks for the response and the advice. I'm thinking about just getting a Bic F12 and calling it a day. Any experience with it? I'd like to keep my budget around $200ish. I can get that for $196 on Jet.com right now with their 15% new customer coupon. I'll check the Klipsch out.
