Summary: I wanted a high quality speaker at a reasonable, low price. I got both with the Northridge speakers. I play big band, jazz, and classical music and I want accurite reproduction in respect to the music in a stereo mode.The grille arrived broken on one of the speakers and HK replaced it at no charge to me. I was pleased with this kind of service.
Summary: I bought the JBL speakers since one month and i have finally connected the speakers using 2 cables for each speaker (bi-wiring). Boy, do they sound differently now? Absolutely. They sound like having more depth and clean sound in the upper high frequencies and also the middle range. I listened yesterday to Peter Frampton concert (1976 Frampton Comes Alive) and it sounded just like a long play LP record, just as I remember it when I had an LP player many years ago.
Summary: I have a pair of E100s and couldn't be happier with them. The sound is very full and warm, maybe moving toward bright at the top of the range. Don't pay too much attention to Mr. Dogen down below; these speakers are very tough to beat at the price offered here (I'd like to know where he intends to get the kind of speakers he mentions for $500 or less).
The jbl e100 3 way speaker system is a very good sounding,and is a super deal.

Summary: These speakers produce very good sound.[...].Yes you can buy speakers ,that are smaller with more accurate sound,but for those wanting big sound in a large room,these just might be right for you.These speakers are quite tall but are fairly slim in width. You will need a lot of clean power,but the payoff is the speakers are very open dynamic and a little bright.I recommend you use a receiver or seperate power amplifiers,that have a more subdued ,or netural sound ,to give...
Summary: These are the best floor standing speakers I have ever owned. The 10 inches make for movie sound that rivals the theater. The last speakers I remember having this much sound reproduction qualitiy were the old Radio Shack Mach I or Mach II's, which they don't make anymore. Modern floor speakers are designed for integrated sound systems and don't require the floor speakers to produce the bass reflex or mid ranges that these guys give you.
Summary: I'm no audiophile, but I definitely have an ear for quality in my music. So, after moving out on my own I decided to invest in a stereo system for my own entertainment, and for entertaining guests. I picked to get a pair of the JBL E100 units. I'm not into movies, or TV; I don't even own a TV. But, I love listening to radio and recorded music.
Summary: These are great at what there spost to do. Great highs for movies but has been a little hash on some hard rock guitar stuff but thats only at high(make your ears hurt) volume. the mids is solid just like you would expect from JBL. The 2 10s provive great high base, But don't think they will replace your sub they won't. And there not ment to. There spost to play to about 45hz, and they do perfectly but you will still need a sub for the way down there stuff.
