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: These are pretty decent speakers. However, the bass amp stopped working after about 5 months. This is pretty on par of what a lot of other people were saying in the reviews as well. Be cautious with this speaker system and listen to the reviews.
Summary: I am changing my review from two to three stars because I connected the speakers to my Yamaha receiver and they sound a lot better. Now the movies sound great and the music very clear, it doesn't sound boxy any more. For the price they are a good system.
The JBL Surround Sound system is good; there is real clarity and it worked fine ...

Summary: The JBL Surround Sound system is good; there is real clarity and it worked fine with Yamaha Receiver.. however the speaker set is real chunky and I had a real tough time to find a suitable set of stands to hold such heavy speakers. had to shell out another 100 bucks to get 2 pairs of stands..
