Summary: I was skeptical about buying a two way center channel, I thought the lack of a midrange driver in this E series would limit the speakers capabilities. I found this not to be the case. The EC25, like it's big brother the EC35 and the LC1, reproduce the human voice with amazing accuracy. From the very deep vocals of the late Johnny Cash all the way through the highs of Jennifer Nettles, the sound quality dose not falter and comes through powerfully and clean.
Summary: I was going to buy the EC35...but decided I wanted a slightly smaller speaker cabinet as I wanted the flexibility to be able to place the EC25 into my entertainment center cabinet behind speaker grills. This turns out to be able to with a width of slightly less than 18". This compared to the EC35 which is almost 22"...which wouldn't work. The sound from the EC25 is good. Dialog is good and directed. Voices are not shrill.
Summary: I got this to replace my Center Onkyo which was really bad, could barley handle the load. So it was between the EC25 and the EC35. Well after much debate i went with EC25 because it was 75 shipped compared to 150 shipped. Well it didn't matter got it and it sounds GREAT with everything Music, Gaming and radio. I am really happy with this speakers it smokes my last Sony, and Onkyo.
This is an excellent center channel speaker designed to match the e series spakers E10,E20,E30 thru the E100 tower system.

Summary: This is an excellent center channel speaker,that is designed to match the Northridge series speaker systems...The center channel speaker,helps with the dialog,and focus and image,presented in a home theater system...I highly recommend this center channel speaker. 4 star rated. thank you.
Summary: There's a few people suffering (they compared with their horrible speakers with Northridge) Let me tell you that is excellent JBL a Family Series, they give them a lesson how to research, design and built loudspeakers to half known and mediocre and semi reputed companies. Nice, although preffer EC35, but its well compact, excellent price for a center and comes from JBL Northridge. This series must be more expensive!!
not the best sounding speaker....but okay for the price

Summary: I bought this speaker thinking it would be a good buy because of the JBL name. I have it matched up with Klipsch front speakers and Wharfedale rear speakers. The Klipsch and Wharfedale speakers are outstanding. The JBL speaker doesn't seem much better than the television speakers (an old Sony Triniton). It gives a flat sound that has very little clarity or depth.
