Good value, very good performer

  • Summary: I have used a pair of the L890's for my system mains, with a JBL mid, JBL 10 inch powered sub and L830's for surround sounds as a home theater for about 6 months. It is a very good combination for music and blu-rays. I listen to a very eclectic mixture of music from Mozart to Bob Marley to SRV to Eagles. Very good response in all ranges. They look nice, as well, but they are really big and heavy. They need a lot of juice so don't scrimp on the power.

spectacular sound but requires a little fine tuning.

  • Summary: I purchased a set of these speakers refurbished because they were so cheap and its one of the better purchases ive ever made. the l890's deliver pure, full range sound with a precision and clarity that you just wont find in any other speaker in their price range. in fact, i only bought the l890's for the hell of it because they were so cheap but they are now my part of my main system.

JBL L890 B&H Kit = Awesome!

Mark, B&H Photo
17 December 2009
  • Excerpt: I feel really fortunate I was able to order and receive the JBL Speaker B&H kit I got. My kit included the JBL L890s, JBL LC2, JBL 820s, and L8400 sub. I think it was a screaming deal and the speakers are absolutely awesome in my opinion. I would recommend that this set be matched with a 130 watt per chanel amp. I have an Onkyo TX-SR707 amp which is awesome for home theater with this kit, but possibly a little underpowered for music.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Easy Setup, Easy to Mount, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
  • Cons: No cons in my opinion

beautiful, but...

  • Summary: These are the nicest looking speakers I've ever owned. But if you want a speaker with a fuller, rounder, bassier sound that isn't as nice looking, you'll get way better sound out of the Cerwin Vegas with the 15 inch woofers. I kept hoping that I'd break these in and things would improve, but unfortunately now I regret I didn't go with the tried and true. By the way I do have a 12 inch subwoofer to compliment these, but still not nearly as good.

  • Summary: I GAVE JBL ANOTHER CHANCE AFTER BEING VERY DISAPPOINTED WAY BACK IN 1988 WITH JBL L100 T--- VERY EXPENSIVE-BUT THEY WERE JUST BOOM BOXES----ONCE OPENED THEY HAD NO BRACING--NO REINFORCED BAFFLE---NO ANTI RESONANCE ASPHALT BOARDS---ALL CHEAP STUFF THAT A FACTORY CAN DO WITH 25 DOLLARS MAXIMUM---BUT CONTRIBUTE VERY VERY HEAVILY TO THE END SOUND. AT HIGH REALISTIC VOLUME THEY VIBRATED LIKE HELL.

an Outstanding speaker!

  • Summary: Great speaker! Really! The sound is very balanced, effortless and transparent. It delivers without shouting, very musical, terrific! You can spend x20 on speakers, you can't get better sound. This speaker when connected to HK3490 is above anything else on any price range. My most loved CD by Neal Seroka is singing! All instruments are there with most delicate details preserved. The sound comes out of this speaker is undeniably music!

JBL Speaker Classic

  • Summary: I purchased a complete Studio L home theater anchored by the L890 over a month ago, and after breaking them in with every style of music, I can can say that these speakers truly deliver the goods. On acoustic Jazz, you can hear into the performance, with a deep and wide soundstage and terrific articulation of each instrument. Bass is full and natural with a solid feeling of the body of the instrument. Horns sound real and arc across the front of my room.

  • Summary: Great speakers for the money.very pleased with them.wonderful sound,very clear and crisp.don't think you need a separate sub. for these speakers.However, I already have a Jbl 300 watt sub.I turn it on low ,it blends in very nicely with the speakers .so far I enjoy the speakers tremendously.you need good amp. to power them so you can enjoy their full potential.You won't go wrong with these speakers.Hope this will help.
