Selenium 12WS600 12" 600W Woofer
Selenium 12WS600 12" 600W Woofer is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Killer 12"sI replaced a tired old set of 12"s in my wedges with these Selenium woofers and they sound GREAT! They handle plenty of power and go plenty low for monitors. I like them so much, I'll be buying another pair for my bi-amped trapezoids.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from People ask Me what do You feed that thing???Got a new 12 for my bass cab and with the 15 in the other they cover a fair amount of mid's and low's. What is nice is they do handle a good amount of watts, of course the amp and cross0over do help also. when I get on them they have a nice mid growl that pluds the middle, so try a pair and good hunting!!!

Selenium 12WS600 12" 600W Woofer

Hello everybody!.  I want to know why the basket of the speaker has changed. I've seen some 12WS600 from 2008/2009 with a diferent basket. All the JBL/Selenium have a completly different one.

Asked by: Ivan J I

Any problems with using these components together ?... Selenium 12WS600 woofer / Selenium D220Ti 8-ohm HF driver / Eminence PXB2:2K5CX

Asked by: DMSLV
Those should work well together. You may need an L-pad on the horn between the crossover and driver, but this is just to bring the horns level down to match the woofer.

Can this speaker handle a direct fed bass guitar and can it be used in a sealed cabinet design?

Asked by: john d s
This can be used directly with a bass guitar but will not have the best extension in a sealed cabinet. The volume recommended is about 0.4 cubic feet with a high F3 of about 116 Hz.

Asked by: Ochimoo2
