Summary: I bought these for my husband's birthday and he couldn't have been happier. We have both enjoyed hearing the sound of bullets/explosions/birds/people talking starting at the front speaker and then coming from behind from the back speakers. They sound wonderful.
Summary: I bought two of these in white for my home audio system, the sound is awesome and the speakers look very stylish too. A great speaker for a good price. Big thumbs up for the fast delivery (free) and good packaging.
Summary: I bought this Receiver to create a custom setup of 7.1 channel system in the living room. These JBL Speakers as Wall-mounted Front Left/and Right Channel, Cerwin-Vega centre channel, PhoenixGold speakers as Ceiling Mounted Surround Left/Right and Surround-Back Left/Right and a powered sub-woofer. I had to source and add adjustable wall mounting brackets because I wanted the speakers to be tilted and positioned at a certain angle.
Summary: The JBL Control Now Bookshelf/Wall Mount Outdoor Speakers are well made, easy to install and perfect for my huge backyard. The sound quality is consistent from the house to the back of the yard so we can listen to our favorite music loud and clear sitting on the deck, gardening in the yard or chilling in the forest beyond.
Summary: I first heard about these speakers from a family friend. He works with the production and mastering of music and was looking for something to use as a center channel/surround speaker to complete his 2.1 setup. I gladly offered my help and began searching for something at a reasonable price point. These JBL's fit the bill perfectly. I didn't purchase them from Amazon, but better yet for $35 apiece from Costco (What a steal!).
Summary: The reason I bought these was to finally create a full 5.1 surround sound system at home. I used to only have 2 JBL 8-inch floor-standers with a JBL Sub12 making a stereo system for my movies and games. I must say, adding three of these speakers (Center, Back L/R) really makes movies and games great. These things are solid performers.
Summary: I have been using these speakers for about 4 months now and they are fully broken in. Picked up at a large warehouse for about $65 apiece. Used it as fronts sides & center. The sound quality is amazing for the price. These speakers are efficient at 90dB & 8 ohms load, so they can get plenty loud even when using a lower power amp. I use Marantz nr1501 and they make a good match.
Summary: I bought these to replace some Control 1s as my surround speakers. The sound seems, not surprisingly, the same, which is to say very good. The ability to mount these in the corners of the wall is what I bought these for, however, and that worked perfectly. They were easy to put up in the corner and the sound is much more enveloping than with the small-bookshelf Control 1s, which had to sit behind us, instead of to the sides.
