Excerpt: I'm 60, so I grew up in the era when JBL made monster sized speakers. I can't believe how technology has evolved. These speakers have great range and a natural sound. JBL, if you are listening, the wall mount installation instructions are horrid. And I used to work in construction, so it should have been easy for me. They make no mention of the required brackets (which are small) or where they are located in the box. I almost threw them away by accident.
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.
