Summary: JBL has been a favorite speaker of mine for years. I wanted to upgrade my audio system and chose the L890CH towers because they matched my JBL center channel.

Summary: Tremendous speaker! The construction is top notch and the installation is simple and uncomplicated. Both the appearance and manufacture of the product is top notch. I strongly recommend this product over the competitors for these features, and because of the exceptional reasonable cost. Simply the best product for the money available today.
