Summary: I bought these JBLs as a Christmas Gift for my youngest son who happens to also have a Birthday a few short days later. He asked for some satellite speakers for his home theater, and after searching web-wide and seeing nothing but high priced, ugly junk, I kept coming back to this set of JBLs. I've been listing to this brand since I was much younger than him, and know this is a quality made product that packs a punch.
Excerpt: I am thoroughly pleased with this purchase. The quality of sound was excellent and more than I expected in this price range. These units are well constructed and quite heavy. I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone.
Excerpt: These speakers do their job very well. They look very nice ( matched them with a JBL sub ) and as always with JBL, they sound great. Perfect size for small room and great sound at a great price ( or at any price ).
Summary: I had to replace my large Kenwood speakers because they've been too big for the new living room. I ordered these speakers and doubted that the bass will be good. But now some weeks later I can tell that they are worth every cent. I had to switch off my loudness because of the clear and loud bass. Also the rest of the speaker (mid and treble) really sounds good. Only whislt hearing very old stuff the mid-range is too soft.
Excerpt: I bought these speakers to replace my old Bose system. I am using these for my front speakers on my 3/2/1 home theater system. I'm driving them with a Sony receiver with 145 watts per channel. The amazing sound fills my great room easily. I am very happy with these speakers. They have crisp, clear highs and decent bass for a six inch bookshelf speaker. My powered sub handles the low notes. I also purchased the ES25C for my center channel. What a difference!
