Excerpt: These JBL L820's replace a 20 year front pair of studio JBL's. The fit and finish on the L820's is outstanding and so is the sound. There is no need for a sub-woofer, the bass is more than sufficient. The only criticism that I have is of the mounting template. Which is wrong.
Pros: Attractive Design, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
Summary: Very happy with these speakers, very clear sound & nice design. I opted not to mount these on the wall (quite heavy) so I put them on speakers stands. I complement these with JBL LC1 center speaker & JBL L830 bookshelf for 5.0 surround, Don't need a sub woofer because the JBL L830 are deceivingly...
Summary: Very sturdy and pretty heavy, but the look and sound of these are magnificent! Powerful enough to fill a medium-sized room with vaulted ceilings without the need for a sub. Clear, distortion-free music and accurate movie sound reproduction at a good price.
