I do have to crank the volume fairly (60%) to get good sound in a fairly large room

Ionizer, Amazon
5 August 2014
  • Summary: Speakers are very small, a lot smaller than I imagined. However, this can be something you desire when mounting in a family room. I do have to crank the volume fairly (60%) to get good sound in a fairly large room, however they produce crisp clean sound. It's exactly what you'd expect for this price and the sub is above average for the price.

Surprised by Poor Reviews

m.e., Amazon
30 June 2014
  • Summary: I'm surprised by the poor reviews for these speakers. I purchased them in combination with the Denon AVR-E300 5.1 Channel 3D Pass Through and Networking Home Theater AV Receiver with AirPlay . I live in an apartment with a sizable living room area, and these speakers combined with the receiver more than fill the space. They are tiny, but with proper setup (I used the Audyssey setup on my receiver) they sound spectacular.

VERY small speakers.

  • Summary: If your looking for surround sound speakers for a room larger than 6'x6' then dont buy these. They are extremely small and sound like poo!!!!!

Don't bother with JBL subwoofers

J. Kates, Amazon
19 May 2014
  • Summary: As with many JBL subs, the amp died outside of the warranty period, but less than four years after I bought it. Additionally, the whole series has been discontinued, and JBL customer support was useless. Buy this only if you want to purchase another subwoofer sooner than you'd like.

JBL Topnotch!!!

ebenbo, JBL
3 May 2014
  • Excerpt: Unconciously, JBL had resgisterd in my mind as a tops speaker manufacturer. I went past a vintage SCS 75 passive subwoofer, and bought it. Clean, clear rounded unsurpasseda, so comfortable bass is what I GOT! I've in Ghana and can't lay hands on these or might not afford it, but I'm making great do with the SCS 75 sub for the time being. Keep going, JBL - don't spoil it!

Best first product on the market for the value

Jackannapolis, JBL
26 March 2014
  • Excerpt: I’ve used JBL speakers (book shelve set) since I was an undergrad. We now have them in our car and for Christmas I received this set. We “had” to buy a new receiver (Sony) which works well with the speakers. I was very impressed that everything needed to use this product was included in the box. No secondary trips to the store to buy wires, mounts or sundry other items. Easy set-up, great sound and a company that I believe it behind the product.

Excellent except for bass

Dale Ratzlaff, Amazon
2 January 2014
  • Summary: This is the second set I have purchased. I moved and left the first set in the house. All the speakers are excellent. However, the circuit board on the on my first set went out in about one year. It cost more to fix it that it was worth. So I purchased one from another manufacture. I understand many have had the same problem.
