As a premier brand name in the AV industry, JBL needs no introduction and the credit of its high level of brand recall goes to the core of JBL:s work policy and ie 'omnipresence'. And the best part here is that. this popularity is backed by genuine quality, which adds credibility to the brand name. We reviewed the ES250PW/230 Interesting and sometimes mind¬boggling designs have been known to come out of the JBL mould.
An instance is their Synthesis series - now that's something that deserves a place in a design museum. The ES250PW is not as flamboyant as the Synthesis, but it looks atypical of a subwoofer. Clad in a subtle black ash finish, it has an unusual body tapering towards the rear end. Then you have a lovely silver surround resting around the huge 12" driver.
The silver gently breaks the monotonous black ash on the front baffle. The baffle, on the other hand, is very similar to an infinite baffle, which sWiftly curves and blends in the upper surface of the subwoofer. Another interesting and useful feature are the spikes (more like knobs), with which
it becomes easier to move this mammoth of a subwoofer.
