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: Unbelievable. I ordered this to pair up with a set of JBL ES20's and a Dayton 12" powered sub-woofer to complete my home theater running in a 3.1 mode. I had previously ordered a Yamaha NS-C210BL to use as my center, and while it was a very nice speaker it just did not match in sound tone and...
Summary: This is a fantastic center speaker voice clarity is superb. I previously was using a ONKYO center channel that I got with a home theater system. The voices seemed to get lost in the action and in quiet scenes they slipped away and I had to adjust the volume.
Summary: I got this center channel to replace a damaged Cerwin Vega VE5C Center channel that was damaged .While the Cerwin served me well for 5 years , the JBL made my surround sound system sound so much better .
Excerpt: I ordered this item because the voice was lacking during movies, music, etc.. This
center offers powerful, clear, voice and carries the sound beautifully. I actually
ordered a pair of ES30's to pair up as the fronts.
