Summary: Plugging in this speaker completely changed my audio experience - it was like night and day. The sound is now clearer, the vocals are crisp and easily heard. Other sounds that weren't that prominent with my last speaker have now come to life, really raising my appreciation for this device.
Summary: Amazing center speaker for them money, paired with two ES80 tower speakers and a Denon x2000, it sounds amazing. My mids were REALLY lacking and this center speaker has completely rounded out the sound.
Summary: I bought this speaker to pair with my JBL ES 90 main speakers. I am doing a major system upgrade and these are paired with an Onkyo 727 receiver (110 watts per ) . I use this center ES 25 mostly for movies as I stay with standard stereo for my music.

Summary: I gave it a try with my living room set up, but it couldn't keep up with my tower speakers. The woofers are just not big enough. So kept my Infinity IL36c in that set up and put this in my bedroom with Infinity P163's as fronts and JBL N24's as rears and it blends very well.
Excerpt: This center channel has upgraded my previous system by leaps and bounds. It has very good midrange and deeper frequencies. The price can't be beat for overall quality. This whole line of speakers is really well priced for the sound quality you receive.
Excerpt: I added this speaker to replace a tiny center speaker. I've been replacing my speakers a little at a time, new JBL sub 1.5 years ago and JBL tower speakers a year ago. Adding the center channel speaker makes movies and music that much clearer. It was a great buy for a great price.
Better for loud music, Great for a home theatre experience.

Summary: After purchasing 7 speakers from the ES250 series, including this particular model ES25CBK, the center channel completes the entire surround sound experience. Quite frankly, most of the spoken words in a program or film are centered on the performance from a center channel speaker.
Summary: I bought this as an alternative to my old Infinity IL36 which is a good speaker but super heavy. In our new theater room I wanterd something I could put on a glass shelf. The old Infinity is way too heavy for that and the black JBL matches our decor.
