Summary: I own a pair of Century 100 studio monitors from JBL and have had them since 1975. They still sound superb. I guess I expected more from these since the technology is 40 years advanced but I am pretty dissatisfied with the sound reproduction.
Summary: purchased these hoping to get a surround effect for rear speaker mode from 7.1 amplifier. I guess they would be better off used as a set of small loud speakers since thats what they are. I'm still trying to set up my receiver to get the right sound ratio for 7 speaker surround.
Summary: It might be ok for people that listen to quite music at low volumes. I used it as rear speakers yet the booming bass was unacceptalbe. It should have been designed for high and mid frequencis and filtered out the low frequencies.
