Summary: I upgrade from a set of Sony SSF-5000 which, to my disappointment, lacked decent crossover networks and were extremely muddy sounding. Even with a less than top of the line receiver, these provide even definition of sound from the bottom to top. I can see where some may say the highs are over-emphasized. However, the highs seem balanced with the lows from the 2 - 8 inch woofers.
Summary: It is excellent i have it with a harman kardom amp and i sounds really nice i have the JBL subwoofer too but it still sounds ok without it you need to increase a bit the bass in your amp and problem solved... but with the sub is great!!
Summary: could not be more pleased. I've had a pair of jbl speakers L100's that i have had since the late 70's that are my favorites. So when i needed some extra speakers for a new sound system i went with old reliable JBL and i was not disappointed. The L100's bring out a little more bass but very similar. i five star product for me.
Summary: I bought a pair of these about 2 years ago, really wanting similar items by JBL for a number of years. I was so tired of pitchy highs, punchy lows and other low quality aspects of my old pair of fron floor speakers. These speakers are everything that a quality pair of speakers should be. Music and movies alike, come alive to the point of beliving you are in the movie or at a concert.
Excerpt: I started on this quest because the JVC Center speaker was so good, that I upgraded all my Boston acoustics speakers to a JVC system. Three way speakers have a much smoother sound quality. Moving from 6" fronts to 8" and moving to a bigger Amplifier have made the room come alive. Running lower volumes and using ES50's as my surround speakers is a bit much, but sounds oh so nice.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
Summary: Product delivered on first day promised and undamaged.These speakers have the tight and bright west coast sound that JBL is known.If you like guitar these are your speakers.You probaly need subwoofer for movies but thats true on any speakers.
Summary: way over price no bass way to high treble junk these are the worst speakers i ever bought. all the write ups and reviews a bunch of bulls***!im very sorry i got these im using a yamaha rx3010 $1600 reciever that puts out 140watts times 7.2 just don't seem to be able to push these wrecks.NO BASS MAYBE IF YOU USE 500WATTS ON THEM YOU MIGHT HEAR SOME BASS.P.S DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY YOU WILL BE SORRY!!!
Summary: Bought two of these, they compliment a much more expensive subwoofer, I considered getting a center channel for the issue of having really loud explosions, but really low dialogue but audssey settings on my receiver fixed all those issues. Check the measurements, these things are tall. Beware, cats love to use these as claw posts.
