but for the most part minor and sound good.. For the price I paid I'm happy

  • Summary: They did come poorly packaged and had some shipping damage. The feet were broken, but JBL will send me some new ones. Some of the plastic studs on the speaker covers were broken, but I glued a few back on and there were enough so the cover will stay. There was some damage to the particle board speaker box, but for the most part minor and sound good.. For the price I paid I'm happy.

  • Summary: FYI they are made in China, what these day's isn't. I was under the impression JBL was an American company, maybe there low end line is made in China, just like Weber grills, anyway don't get me started. I bought them from JBL web-page at $149.99 each free delivery. One of the speakers was damaged as it was shipped UPS ground. They must throw these packages like rag dolls at UPS.

Speaker is good, but was shipped in poor packaging and one unit had missing and damaged parts

  • Summary: I like the speakers and especially at the discounted price of $180/ea, I would rate them a 4-5 for price performance, especially if you like a good clean midrange and horns. Pretty typical JBL sound (which I like). However the standard JBL packaging of the units was not really good for shipping and were pretty beat up...but the speakers themselves seem to make it ok.

Decent product

  • Summary: A good buy from Amazon at $200 each. Good high and mid-range while bass is only moderate. Need a decent amplifier to push them. If you need a strong and tight bass for your listening, you better complement them with a sub-woofer -- which I am now considering.

  • Summary: The JBL ES80 Floorstanding speakers deliver a knockout audio experience at an amazingly low price. Ranging 45hz-18,000kz @100/400 watts continous/peak and a slope of 24db@700hz,3600hz, 18db@18,000kz the audio reproduction and separation are tremendous! not recommended for a system pushing more than 200 watts but for everything upto that these bad boys sure do shine. pros: great clear sound rich deep bass, snaping clear highs. great raw power. reasonable cost.
