Summary: I wanted something that would compliment my 15 year old bose book shelf speakers in a large room. I also wanted speakers that were relatively small since I was mounting them on the wall in plain view. The JBL speakers are visually clean and mounted with no problem at all. They come with mounting brackets. The sound is crisp and rich. I highly recommend them.
Summary: I am using these speakers as right and left surrounds as well as rear right and left surrounds. I paired them with two JBL ES80BK 3-Way, Dual 6 1/2" Floorstanding Speaker - Black and just broke them in while watching Wreck-It Ralph (Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD + Digital Copy) in 7.1 DTS -HD Master Audio 7.1. It was delighful. I am no audiophile, but I also don't like to go cheap on my electronics. This has satisfied my desire.

Summary: connected to a Onkyo HT-rc front height channels 370, they are very heavy and large characteristic of JBL. One negative for not giving 5 stars is that they have many mounting options, and includes nothing to ease the task, I had to improvise to install. I hope they are durable!
Summary: I'm not going to get technical reviewing these speakers...I bought them on JBL's reputation and other reviews and have not been disappointed. Sure it would benefit from a subwoofer, but it has plenty of bass and very crisp highs and works well for the small area where I have my onkyo receiver. The small footprint belies the excellent sound it provides and I would definitely recommend them for someone who has a 2.0 system that needs improvement.
Summary: I found these book shelf speakers on a special Holiday sale and could not be happier. I was a little worried about not having a separate bass when buying them, but the sound couldn't be better. I totally recommend.
Summary: Very good sound, bigger than I thought, but the sound is excellent. Pretty heavy speaker, probably because they are made with real material vs. plastics. I bought them on Black Friday and got a great deal.
Summary: Placed these on the wall behind the couch to provide rear-channel sound. Combined with the rest of the ES line of speakers (es80, es25c, es150), I now have a movie theater experience in my living room. I highly recommend the entire line! The only drawback is my wife keep telling me to turn it down...
Summary: When the speakers arrived I knew that it would sound better, but WOW it is a total emersion into the movie experience. The system that I had is 5.1 surround sound, but now 7.1 surround sound is awesome. I went with JBL because they have parts and sales staff willing to help solve problems.
