Summary: Just added these to my ES-80's as surround right and left, and they are awesome. Lots of power and sound. I often look outside to see what's going on, just to realize that it is just the surround sounds. They are a LOT bigger than I expected but worth the price.
Summary: I purchased these as stereo pairs for my home theatre system. They mate with a thunderous sub-woofer and amplifier that allows for controlling the amount of low frequency energy to them. They provide clear crisp sound for all frequencies above the sub's performance. I recommend them highly.
Beautiful, elegant, well built and a piece to show off

Summary: I bought this pair for my Onkyo 7.1 surround. Their purpose is front surround as I do have a different set for the back surround. It has been some weeks since my purchase and I still love looking at them, listening to them and, again even with system off, looking at them. They are outstanding. They are not your typical small or satellite speakers, they are mean and strong JBL surround purpose speakers.
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.
