Excerpt: These speakers have a great range and clarity. Treble is bright without being "tinny" and the bass response is crisp. These speakers are a great value. I have a pair of Kitsch bookshelf speakers that require a subwoofer to provide the range and they do are not as clear though out the entire dynamic range. Thus, the E 320's are a better value.
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.
Summary: JBL's ES20 Bookshelf speakers do a commendable job on their own, for their size. Running just these speakers alone, with a clean 80 watts of power will impress you. The only thing lacking is the deep bass due to the use of a 5" low frequency driver. Vocals are clean, clear and transparent with a very natural sound quality. Overall balance across all frequencies is very good! I'm happy with them!
Summary: I loved the speakers, found them to be excellent and I now know why they cost more than the what I paid for, you need high power to drive them. I wasn't too impressed for the bass response, but then again for the size I could not complain. They filled a large room with music/movie audio with ease. A little high on the treble but again its a 3 way speaker. But when those high pitched noises came on the movie it was spectacular.
Excerpt: These small bookshelf speakers are great. I put a very basic 5.1 system together in the family room, and these speakers do the job nicely. I use them for my left and right fronts. Now, some may be saying they are to small to be used as/for front channels. But, I beg the differ. If you are tight on cash, I don't think you can find a better sounding small speaker for your front channels. Of course I use my sub for the lows.
Summary: I grabbed this item quite cheap on Amazons black Friday sales last year and have to say the quality of sound these speakers produce is pretty impressive, and are a nice addition to my 7.1 setup. Would defiantly recommend if your after some decent speakers that wont break the bank.
Summary: The product picture on the website seemed to be a little tacky. I kind of regretted buying this before receiving the package. But when I opened the box, they looked way better in real! Doesn't feel as plasticky as pictures shown on the web. Sound exceeds most entry models which has higher price tag. Lows are solid, and delivers balanced mid-high range. Surprisingly speedy,accurate, and spacious considering the price.
Summary: I use these as rear channels in a 7.1 setup. They perform very well with the rest of my speakers which are JBL Studio L Series. They have excellent high-frequency responce and fantastic stereo imaging. The low-end is lacking, but I wouldn't expect much of 5.25in. woofers. These would be okay for a small bookshelf system, and they make excellent surround speakers.
