I just got this sub and it sounds superb for a sub $500 sub. I have owned other JBL products (control room, PA, and home speakers) and this is consistent with their sound quality. I'm not sure what year my sub is.

Product Specifications

You know why movies are more exciting in theaters? It's all that glorious bass, demanding your full attention and engaging your senses. So if you're ready to experience the full impact of movies and music at home from the best the entertainment industry has to offer, JBL is taking reservations now. The LFE input bypasses the subwoofer's internal, user-adjustable low-pass crossover network, to avoid unnecessary reprocessing of the Low-Frequency Effects channel of the digital soundtrack. The result will rock the room with floor-shaking effects like explosions, earthquakes or even the rumbling of the engines in an airplane. This model features the following inputs: line-level (switchable to LFE) and speaker-level with gold-plated 5-way binding posts.
