Summary: Great speakers, sound is amazing and speakers are elegant and stylish; I would have given 5 stars but had a problem with the sub-woofer going on stand-by mode in the middle of the action and not coming back, but thanks to Amazon I just called report the problem and they sent me a new set of speakers...
Summary: This is first time using "5.1 channel speakers" in a box for me. The product came very well packaged, brackets are good, cables are good, sub woofer power cable could have been longer though. Performance wise, very disappointing except for the woofer.
Summary: Subwoofer was defective. Subwoofer started making a high pitched noise as soon as it was powered on. JBL customer service is of absolutely no help. Thankfully Amazon know how to treat their customers, they are fully refunding me.
OK Sound, Nightmarish Experience with Inept Company
15 August 2013
Summary: This 5.1 system is good for the price. A passable installation for a smaller home and a smaller room. I had it in my 12x15, awkwardly rectangle room for a few months. It performed OK. I then upgraded it to a 10x18 room that opens into a kitchen and a foyer. It held its own.
Summary: Bought this speaker set from Amazon back in Dec 2012 for my basement, and have not been able to get the subwoofer to work consistently for normal periods of tv/movie/music consumption. It shuts off after an hour, or sometimes as little as 3 minutes.
Summary: These speakers sound great and can handle the power of my amp. Great upgrade to my previous speakers. The speakers shipped but one satellite speaker was distorted. Another system shipped and I am in great shape. The one speaker issue is the only reason I did not assign 5 stars.
Summary: This is a really well balanced set....wish it came as a 7.2 The speakers are well made and they provide good hanging options. Be sure to verify the size...I found these to be a bit larger than I expected....but they are impressive looking and sound really sweet.
Summary: An ideal home theatre set has 5 identical speakers (2 front, 2 rear, center) and a compatible sub. This JBL delivers with amazing sound and, for the price is as good a bargain as you will find. As a 2.1 stereo set up, I'm also very pleased though ideally, this is for home viewing. Great product
Summary: Great sound! weak mids but you can eq each speaker depending on your receiver to help compensate. all around great speakers and powerful sub. i am so glad i pulled the trigger on these speaks! I would highly recommend to anyone and everyone! also look very nice. and are heavy quality speakers.
Summary: *****It does not come with the speaker stand that are shown in the images(poor vendor false advertising) for me this was annoying as my home entertainment system consisting of projector screen in front of my tv, the front speakers I wanted to move when the projector screen was down/up etc.
