  • WTB: Looking for a JBL 1500 Sub. A woofer sold by PE and used in the 1500 Array BG

    Hello all I currently have and am looking for a second (third and fourth) JBL 1500 sub. This is a large 15” woofer, 4” coil, and the traditional JBL frame and motor, but with a larger back plate. If you have one or some please do let me know. Thanks!

    That will be tough to find. Jeff looked for a long time...

      Bump, still looking. Had someone come to me saying they had one, but they seemed to have changed their mind maybe, I don’t know. If someone has one let me know.

        The spec sheet (pdf attsched below) mentions that, "The JBL 1500 Array powered subwoofer combines extremely high power output with unsurpassed low-frequency definition and extension to offer the ultimate bass performance in a multichannel Project Array system. The Sub Array employs a high-efficiency 1500Fe 380mm (15") Aquaplas-treated pulp-cone woofer, featuring a copper edge-wound voice coil in a massive 100mm (4") ferrite-magnet assembly, along with JBL’s exclusive Symmetrical Field GeometryTM circuit for significantly reduced distortion and additional refinements."

        Here is some sourcing information on the JBL1500FE woofer,

        sourced from Nexus Manufacturing in 2005

          This woofer is one that I think anyone in the know would love to own.

          It's used in Greg Timbers personal system IIRC.

          They're amazing drivers and wish I was on the scene when they were more abundant. You can try the Lansing Heritage forum, but presume anyone who has one isn't looking to offload it in a hurry.

          Good luck in your search... If you find too many, let me know LOL
