Summary: Speakers sound great, but only on the shelf and not on the wall where I planned to put them when I bought them. I have had to order wall-mount brackets from an after-market supplier (JBL does not offer them), and I am waiting for their delivery so I can mount the speakers where I originally planned for them to go. The product is advertised as "Wall-Mountable Bookshelf Loudspeaker" and the listing on Amazon stated: "Wall mount hardware included".
Summary: I am a diehard JBL speaker fan. I currently have the JBL Northridge series on my system. These speakers have been working flawlessly for the past 7 years so naturally I wanted to add matching speakers. Unfortunately, the Northridge Series are no longer available. I needed a pair of speakers to fill dead space on the other side of a large living room in my new home however I did not want another pair or towers.
Summary: These speakers are not tiny satellite modules which are meant to disappear in the room. Well, I think that's great; because not only do they sound amazing, but they look amazing too! I use these speakers as a B set in my living room away from my main home theater setup. I have two small children and I like to continue listening to audio while they are napping... so I have absolutely no need for the overwhelming boom and thump of a sub.
What amazing sound from such a tiny speaker setup!

Summary: I bought these speakers to be the satellite surround speakers to go along with the JBL L890 front speakers. After a few user errors and getting to know my receiver a bit better these two speakers alone can speak for themselves. Deep accurate bass and crystal clear mids and highs for anything can put to them. Theater sound effects and every music imaginable (besides country) sound amazing. I get punchy bass at extremely low power output.
Excerpt: Although the weight of each speaker is, in my opinion, heavy for one that is considered to be "wall mountable" that is indeed the only drawback. JBL makes a great product - period. Completely happy with the L810's.
Excerpt: The shape of these speaker enclosures are great for corner placement. I located the JBL L810's high in the back corners of my AV room. They have a clean sound for music and can produce a good 'thud' for those distant explosions in the movies. Wall mount is the way to go for that valuable floor space. Recommended.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy Setup, Easy to Mount, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
Summary: The speakers chosen have worked well for the upper channels and speakers. However, using the speakers for the front right and left just did not do the system sound quality and requires a min of two more floor mount speakers.
