Summary: These are so powerful and clear. Some of the best speakers I've ever had. They support 100W per channel, but even around 20W per channel, these things roar. Each channel is just as clear as the opposite one, and works well playing back a 5.1 Dolby Digital audio track.
Summary: With the ad reading a cinema speaker system I had mistakenly thought this would be like a stero around sound. the JBL speakers are great. When I played music on them my CCR sounded like it did when I went to the concerts.
Summary: good bass punch for such a small speaker they handle some good power and start to bounce a bit under high power you may need a Velcro to keep em in place I have a pair of large advent and these did pretty close but a sub woofer is a must for a surround system for the $40 if your looking to make a kids room rattle humm w/o breaking the bank these will do
