Question JBL? Good brand?

I just bought 2 JBl 10's in a box with a 300w amp for $100. I was just wondering if JBL was a good brand, and if i got ripped off.

It's a good brand... I used to have one GT 12" in a ported box in my CRX, and It bumped really hard.... But if you are considering the Loud+Clear series... don't get them... they're crap...

yeah their good, i'd only get GT or better, above statement about loud and clear is correct. the gt's are pretty damn cheap too, i had a gt 10 in my grandcherokee, i have since then had a JL 10w0 and a jl 10w3d4 and the jbl was better than the 10w0 but no comparing it too the 10w3d4, hope this helps, if you have a tight bugdet i'd definitly get the JBL GT class sub, good freq. response and clean bass.

Well, i've already got them..how am i sposed to know if they're GT tho? IMO, they sound pretty good, I wasnt lookin for the perfect system, just sumthin loud w/ a lil boom. I was just wonderin if they were a good brand and if $100 was a good price for 2 10's and an amp in a box. thanks for the replies tho

It's a Jensen 300w amp. I've heard it was a crappy brand but its what came with the subs, and after i bought it all i didnt have anough money to go buy another amp..so i have to deal with it whether its crappy or not.

JBL, super dooper good brand! Wouldnt buy much else over JBL, maybe Harman Kardon or BOSE, but all thems are basically on the same level.

JBl is one of the best buys for your money. They are also known for their "bite" It's a term that means they reproduce the a sound morel iek what you'd hear at live events... (which makes sense because a lot of pro louspeakers are JBL. BTW JBL is owned by Harman which makes Harman Kardon, Infinity, JBL, JVC, and possibly another brand.

eerrr...sorry, jensen is not a crappy brand. you just hear a lot of people saying that. people don't know how to use the product and simply ruins it and assume it's cheap because its their own goddamn fault for breaking it. sorry for being so rude.

They're a solid company. Lots of people like 'em. Personally, they've never impressed me to the point where I'd buy anything that they make. I think there are better products in other companies, but there is also worse you can get.
