Final Piece

  • Pros: Fantastic sound and easy hook up. Still trying to figure out where to mount, on stands or the wall. The adjustable mounting brackets are a great feature.
  • Cons: Downstairs neighbor might have one or two..................

Great Product

T. Isaac, Amazon

  • Summary: I've had this for about 15 months now and I have got to say I absolutely love it. Easy mounting and set-up. Looks amazing and most important of all sounds great. Great versatile music system that sounds good playing movies and also music. The sub woofer is active so it is pretty powerful and you will probably have to lower the setting or turn it of all together if you live in an apartment complex. Overall great value for money.

Faulty speaker, terrible customer service, sound lacks depth

Michael J Hara, Amazon
1 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought these based on previous Amazon reviews and the fact that the aesthetics of their design appealed to my rather discerning wife. I should have known better to pick a speaker by how it looks, but given the good reviews I decided to go for it anyway. The sound is .... meh. It's alright, not that bad, but certainly far from great. It lacks...depth and realism. I'm not a hard-core audiophile, but I do know when I hear a good speaker and these are not it.

A solid beginner's purchase

Isaac G., Newegg
22 October 2013
  • Summary: Before I finish, I need to point out that you will also need a receiver/processor with which to power and operate the whole system. You are only buying the speaker system, not an entire home theater system. (A decent receiver/processor can run you as much as $300.
  • Pros: - Price
  • Cons: The only possible downside would be if you are looking for a powerful speaker set to use in a particularly large room, as the satellite speakers are rated at a maximum of 100 watts. I have been told they could easily handle more, but I am no professional myself.

value for money. highly recommended!!

  • Summary: I cant be more happy that I bought these speakers. they are of very good quality and looks stunning. I have coupled them with Onkyo 609. the end result is mind blowing. Pros the sub woofer is very powerful and in reality is more then what I require Gloss finish looks fabulous. cons somewhat an awkward shape of speakers makes it hard to place them on stands. however, if fixed to wall then its all good.

  • Summary: I had my home wired for 7.1 and these look great mounted on the walls and ceiling. Love the clear crisp sound of JBL. The bass is also very responsive. I would highly recommend this product. . I am using this with the new Onkyo 7.2 receiver and a new smart TV. Just like you are at the movies!

Excellent Speaker System

RD from St.Paul,MN, Amazon
25 May 2013
  • Summary: I did have a bad experience with another JBL product but this speaker system lives up to the JBL quality standards. Speakers a compact and can be placed anywhere. The sub provides ample bass. I would reccomend this to anyone who has a small-mediumn room and needs a good system.

Exceeded expectations

David N. Mcquade, Amazon
6 April 2013
  • Summary: I'm an audiophile from way back and outfitting a beach villa with a smaller screening area -- all speakers are placed within 8' of the couch. I'm very impressed with the immersive experience (with a second base box and 2 additional speakers for 7.2). The dynamic range of these downsized speakers is nothing short of remarkable.
