  • Summary: Everybody who read the reviews about this speaker, for that matter, every product that is made, finds either good or bad experiences. I have made a long, long journey for the perfect affordable setup and it has come to a stop. This speaker can (and will) reveal any weak points in a setup.

  • Summary: Unlike everyone who seems to gush over these speakers, I certainly did not. I've also learned not to trust what hifi mag since they raved about these. They weren't offensive sounding, but really not great at all.

I would have bought these for sure at $450 pair

  • Summary: I would have bought these for sure at $450 pair, but looks like they jacked up the price. Lots of choices at $600 like the Klipsch RP-160M Reference Premiere, or the Definitive Technology SM55. Just wish I knew which pair would be the overall best expenditure.

  • Summary: Upgraded from the Polk Tsi100s (I'm using a Denon E-300 receiver). Heard a lot of good things about these so I decided to make the purchase. Definitely worth it! One significant difference I noticed is that the bass is far more powerful than the Polk's. With the Polks.

First Great Sounding small speakers

Overdubn, JBL
9 October 2014
  • Excerpt: These are the best I have heard. Highs are not harsh, with a good amp there is detail, smooth extended highs, even though it is a 5" woofer there is "punch" in the bottom. I have been in pro audio for over 30 years and JBL at one point took a few hits with the reputation of "harsh mid and highs"...

Sound great right out of the box

Peter, Amazon
8 October 2014
  • Summary: These sound great right out of the box. Clean and balanced, plenty of presence and punch but zero screech from the horns. Really just sounds good, expecially for the money, and not super-sensitive to placement, the whole room sounds good. These were a good pickup.

  • Summary: These speakers make the lower end Klipsch speakers seem warm sounding. These are annoying and sound like your ears are being burned out from the outside in. The B&W Speaker from Best Buy the larger bookshelf speaker sounds 10 times better.

Beatiful sound

Edward, Amazon
30 July 2014
  • Summary: Amazing clarity for the price. The treble has incredible balance and the midrange is very transparent. The bass is very clean and satisfyingly deep but not as punchy as I'd like. The sound of these horn-tweeters bring so much life and emotion to instruments and vocals; don't even get me started on...

Incredible bargain.

D. J. Leedham, Amazon
8 July 2014
  • Summary: I already had two prior-model JBL speakers and a central speaker, and needed two new front L&R, for 5.1 sound, Demoting the original speakers to the rear. I'd been happy with what I from JBL, but wanted something better as I'd upgraded my a/v equipment. The Amazon reviews I read were very positive.
