Summary: JBL is not just any speaker manufacturer but a producer of Hi-End professional equipment for use in multiple environments. They have a reputation of quality. From past purchases of JBL products, I would definitely buy another and not think twice.
Summary: Just what I was looking for to use at the lake. Can't wait to install them. They look very versatile and should be great to listen to at the lake. Even thought they are outdoor speakers, I will still probbaly take them in for the winter months.
Summary: I've had alot of speakers that were much better than these, but, they cost a heck of alot more. build quality seems very good for price asked, both used, and, new. produces a neutral sound, not too much bass, highs are somewhat lacking depth on some recordings, but, i'm picky. with respect to this class, cost, sound, and, name history, beats my other set of harmon kardons, destroys my basement akai bookshelfs, and, polks once owned.
Summary: I have now purchased 3 pairs of these speakers. My first set replaced a pair of outdoor speakers that I bought in 2007. The surrounds on the old speakers deteriorated after 2 years, so I bought my first pair of JBL's in April 2009. The overall sound from these speakers is better than you would expect from a 2-way with a 4" woofer. My second pair are in my garage and my third pair will go on the wall in my wife's sewing room.
Summary: Owned the same set for 10 years. I bought a pair because I cracked the internal chip on one of them, I accidentally dropped it @ 4 feet on my tile floor (dropped it a few times @about he same height on carpet & it did not damage anything). It did not sustain external damage to housing or cones. And second is to keep the set up consistent for aesthetic reasons with my living room.
Summary: I heard these speakers years ago and was suitably impressed. I purchased a pair at a reasonable price and I highly recommend them as a value wall mount speaker. The N24 does a pretty good job of music reproduction, but they shine as surround speakers. The Northridge series is a nice alternative to Bose sound and a bit less $.
Summary: Nice speakers, they are a little too big in my opinion but all I really care about is the sound. My wife is the one who worries about how it looks. The included wall mounts were nice as well. It made for a fairly clean installation.
