Excerpt: I bought these as my outside front surround speakers to go with my S38 main stereo speakers and center studio speaker. they do great for surround filler,
may order another set for my rear surround set, to replace old smaller jbls.
System is also set up with dual 12" jbl 250 powered subs and makes most people
head for cover when I crank it up !!! I just buckle up and hang on !!!!
Excerpt: I bought these speakers a couple months ago. I knew of JBL's reputation however I never thought I would get such quality at such a low price. I've been telling everyone about the deal I got by buying direct, thanks again JBL.
Excerpt: Being an audiophile I wanted to upgrade the sound quality of our bedroom HDTV. On some programs we were having a hard time understanding dialog. I mated these JBl's with a Denon DRA 397 receiver and are very pleased with the improvement. Ina music setting I would think that with a 10" or 12" sub this would be a killer stereo system. Highly recommended.
Summary: If you have a worthwhile receiver, these are worthwhile speakers. On their own merit, these speakers have crisp, well-defined highs, and absolutely spectacular imaging. Given the proper amount of power, the highs are well-balanced and not shrill or overly sibilant as some reviews around the net might indicate.
Excerpt: I got these speakers earlier in the week and I was very satisfied with them. I purchased them to start phasing out some of my other speakers (RCA), and these blew them away. Excellent sound quality, plenty of power for what I'm after, and they are looking pretty good in my room. They were larger than my previous satellites, as expected.
The terminals are exactly what I was after and usually in this price range, speakers didn't have 5-way binding posts.
