Jamo’s New Subwoofer Quartet Sings

Indianapolis — Jamo overhauled the performance of its powered subwoofers, shipping a quartet of new models at prices ranging from a suggested $399 to $849.

Two of the models are designed for use with the brand’s high-volume, high-value Jamo Studio line, and the two step-ups are intended for the premium Jamo Concert line.

The introductions follow the launch this year of Jamo’s second-generation flagship series of passive home-theater speakers, called the Concert Series, priced up to $3,500 for a pair of floorstanding tower speakers.

The brand earlier this year also expanded its assortment of custom-installed speakers with a Custom 200 series priced above its opening-price Contractor series and below its Custom 400 and 600 series.

The new subwoofers are the $399 J 10 SUB, $499 J 12 SUB, $679 J 110 SUB, and $849 J 112 SUB. They’re rated at 150 watts RMS/300 watts peak, 200400m 200/450, and 300/600, respectively. All feature Class D amps.

 All have line-level and LFE RCA inputs, low-pass crossover and phase control.

The J 10 SUB and J 12 SUB feature front-firing aluminized polyfiber woofers to deliver extra-low frequency response with minimal distortion, the company said. Their MDF cabinets are finished in wood-grain vinyl to match the Jamo Studio speaker line.

The J 110 SUB and J 112 SUB subs are designed for use with the Jamo Concert line and with other high-performance speakers, the company said. They feature injection-molded graphite woofers with hard conical-cone technology to deliver detailed sound with very little distortion, the company said. They also have MDF cabinet with high-gloss polymer finish. Both models are compatible with the WA-2 wireless subwoofer kit.
