Summary: I had another brand center channel speaker and expected this one to be clearer and sharper because of the extra drivers and higher cost . That was not the case. The ultra high driver is silent or too weak to hear , Sometimes voices are muffled .
Summary: I have a JBL LC2 which has the same 6" base speakers as the L820. Both the base speakers in my LC2 have torn rubber surrounds, and since this is a sealed unit, having a hole where air can escape past the rubber surrounds does not fill me with confidence that I am hearing this speaker as it was designed.
