Plenty of punch

  • Excerpt: Although they were a bit larger than I expected, I'm more than happy with sound they reproduce. I bought a sub-woofer to go with my system and I need very little extra low end because the ES90s really thump all by themselves. I've been using JBL products for years in my home and at work. The VRX Line Array and MR series monitors are what I use on stage but I won't compare these to them. The clarity of the ES90s are, I feel, best in class and price range.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
  • Cons: Best on carpet floors

Great speakers for the price

John M. Meyer, Jr., Amazon
6 June 2011
  • Summary: These sound like I expect from JBL - Clear, bright highs, powerful midrange, and enough low end punch that I don't really need a subwoofer to enjoy my home theater. I'm driving them with an Onkyo TR-808, for which they are a good power match. They are fairly good size and pretty heavy, so they may not be for everyone, but if you have the room and want a great audio experience with movies and music, they are a great choice.

Hard to beat for the money

  • Excerpt: I have these powered with a Halfer XL280 and Kimber 4tc. They really are a nice sounding speaker for the price. The low end is solid and they can take gobs of power without bottoming out. The base quality is very good with the Hafler. It dampens woofers better than most amps. I have used JBL for 30 years. I lost faith in them over the last ten years. Their quality really slipped. It seems they are working on building a good speaker again.
  • Pros: Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
  • Cons: Heavy / Bulky

Great sound at a killer price

TC, J&R

  • Excerpt: Wonderful sound range across the board for these speakers. I couldn't find anyone in Oregon that had the next model up to listen to, and I loved these at a lower cost. If you want/need the lower bass, then you will want a sub for sure. I also have the E series center spkr and they compliment each other very well. Out of all the other brands that I listened to, these sounded the least "tinny" or overloaded on the highs or lows.

JBL ES90BK Speakers

DEP792, J&R
10 March 2010
  • Excerpt: Bought these for use in my medium-sized music/library room. They certainly are beautiful to look at. For music reproduction, I find good treble and fair midrange response. However, in the bass area require assistance of a good subwoofer.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Easy Setup, Easy to Mount
  • Cons: Weak Bass

Midrange Is Too Strong

Chris, Amazon
26 February 2010
  • Summary: See 3/19/2010 update below. I'll start by saying that my 3 rating would be about a 7 on a 1 to 10 scale. Based on the overly strong midrange and the fact that JBL is having this speaker built in China, I can't give this a 4 out of 5. Fit, finish, and appearance on this speaker is somewhat mixed. The front panel veneer is attractive and rolls to the top panel via the beveled edge at the top front.

Midrange Is Too Strong

Chris BC, J&R
25 February 2010
  • Excerpt: I'll start by saying that my 3 rating would be about a 7.5 on a 1 to 10 scale. Based on the overly strong midrange and the fact that JBL is having this speaker built in China, I just couldn't quite give this a 4 out of 5.Fit, finish, and appearance on this speaker is somewhat mixed. The front panel veneer is attractive and rolls to the top panel via the beveled edge at the top front. The front panel is made of MDF and appears to be either 3/4 or 1 inch thick.
  • Pros: Attractive front panel, Excellent dispersion, Very clean and tight
  • Cons: Made In CHINA, Midrange is too strong
