The JVC CS-BB2 R/B is a fabulous amplified subwoofer enclosure that can add bass without taking up lots of space. This factory refurbished powered subwoofer produces amazing sound output for such a small package. It is an ideal fit for trucks, sports cars, and for any other vehicle with limited trunk space. How can a 2.5” tall powered sub make a noticeable difference? The answer is found in the built-in 6” subwoofer powered by an internal 2-channel amplifier. This combo results in a system that produces plenty of bass despite its small stature.
Even though the LS-csbb2-RB is factory refurbished, it is like new in terms of its performance. There will not be any major blemishes that will affect the operation or appearance of the unit. Refurbished items work like new and are in very good condition. If for some reason you are not satisfied, it carries a 90 day exchange warranty. It is a great value purchase, because you get almost brand new quality for half of the price.
Like many amplified subwoofers, this model is extremely easy to install. No additional adapters are required. It connects easily to both factory and aftermarket setups. Just use the 2-way speaker level inputs and preamp RCA inputs to connect this powered sub to your car stereo system. The amp and sub are perfectly matched, so you don’t need to spend time trying to figure out wattage or wiring diagrams. You don’t have to worry about purchasing or constructing the proper box, as the sub and amp are built-in to an enclosure.
This unit gives you playback control as you can use the handy wired remote level bass control to adjust the bass. And even though this amplified sub already produces very good sound quality, it is compatible with 5.1 channel surround sound for further possibilities. It probably won’t rattle your mirrors or wake up your neighbors, but if you just want something simple that can add a nice deep bass line to compliment your speakers’ highs, this is the perfect setup for you.
