Summary: I am extremely pleased with the overall acoustic qualities this system delivers; It would be very hard to compete against the "Cinema 300" while making a similar 'investment' in home entertainment!
Summary: Upgraded from a onkyo mid range system to this and the sound and bass is a big improvement. The powered woofer is a US power voltage so a converter to 220V is required for me. Definitely a good buy!
Summary: These speakers are tremendous! The sound is perfect and installation was simple. I mounted all mine on the walls and they are small enough to not draw attention. The sub-woofer is enormous (even a little too big) which makes it harder to camouflage. I could not find a table big enough to cover it so I ended up connecting a wireless router to it so I could put it behind other furniture. Great buy!
Summary: What's in the box? -the speakers (I should hope) -black speaker cables (good quality) -- 3 medium length 2 longer for the surrounds -stands for speakers (easy to attach/detach if you wall mount like I do) -sub cable -screws Mounting The speakers have keyhole mounts on the back; the center has two. They are fairly lightweight and I'm confidently mounting them with adhesive cable tie wall mounts as I live in an apartment and cannot drill my wall.
I wish I had auditioned the system before purchasing...shame on me!

Summary: I purchased this system for a guest bedroom. I made my decision based on the JBL reputation for excellent pro-sound products. This system is compact except for the subwoofer and OK if you are going to use it as background fill and to supplement a small bedroom surround sound / TV setup. The subwoofer is lack luster and to large and hard to place unobtrusively. I would have expected much better sound quality based on it's size, and the satellites are a bit harsh.
Summary: These speakers sound very nice, are simple and easy to hook up, and even look good. I hung them on the walls using screws and the hole in the back. If done right, they can easily be fastened to the wall strongly. The subwoofer is superb as well. I have recently used this for movies such as the Lord of the Rings, Taken, and Edge of Darkness. Each movie sounded spectacular on these speakers. I would also recommend those movies.
Summary: I want to buy BOSE but I could not afford it. JBL is nice and I bought. I am using this in my home and quite nice. Remember, you must buy the 5-1 receiver. I bought the Sony receiver and connected my JBL with it......... I will recommend it to anyone who is interested to buy a BOSE alternative.
Summary: I was lazy and got my nephew to hook these up to my TV -- a small flat screen -- and the results were amazing!! Huge sound with the volume only turned part of the way up! We placed the speakers, that come with ample wire to place them around an average-sized room, in all corners of the room, and sat back to experience what was like being in a theater....truly! We were all amazed and thrilled that all this sound was coming from this little tiny TV!
Summary: I'm loving these speakers! The sound is great and they look good too. The satellite speakers easily mount to a wall with a single screw while the center speaker wall-mounts with two screws. Here lies my only complaint. There are mounting dimensions included in the directions and since the center speaker requires two screws to mount on the wall, the directions give the distance between these two screws as 7 11/16 in. This is false!
Very, very nice speakers that provide excellent sound.

Summary: I received these speakers as a preview to review on here on Amazon. At first blush, I didn't know what to think. I own a 5.1 system already that is Klipsch. I have found those speakers to be very good overall and provide good sound. However, after listening to these for some weeks, I have to say that there is a difference, and these speakers are remarkably better. What's in the box?: 1.
