    JBL BP1200.1 - Overrated, underrated, or not?

    Is the JBL1200.1 overrated, underrated, or is it just about where it claims, at 1200 watts?




    Is this not a reasonable place to park?

    I think it is pretty close to the power ratings.

    I representative told me that it was just a little underrated...probably closer to 1250-1300 watts.

    I thought JBL was more at the bottom on the quality scale.

    Thats why you don't get paid to think. JBL has been around for longer than you have and they make very quality stuff.

    Not all of their stuff is high end but they do not make gabage. Harman Intl has been around for a long time and have a reputation to uphold.

    its a good amp sorta low on features but it puts out good power.. it sorta shows how much it really costs to produce power imo alot of amps are overpriced only thing the 1200.1 is missing is a sub sonic filter, was the #1 reason i didnt get it.

    No Subsonic Filter...

    Is this a problem? From what I know (which probably isnt that much compared to most people) but doesnt that conserve energy by not powering notes that your subs probably cant play anyway? Correct? If the JBL not having one is a problem...and I need a decent amp....and I dont have alot of money....could I purchase a crossover or something later that has one? Or are those not made? Just a thought, cuz I really want the JBL.

    think of it as a sub saver that takes unwanted frequecies (potentially damaging) and makes sure it never gets to the sub..not sure about buying one we built one for my firebird way back when. a good amp with this feature is the memphis 1000d its almost a must have if you are thinking of a ported box or a large sealed

    Thanks audiolife, now the secret is out Just kidding. Seriously, the biggest flaw of the 1200.1 is that it does not have the filter or so I have heard.
