Review: JBL Spot Speakers

 

Posted by Dr. MacensteinWe have reviewed many impressive speaker systems in our almost 2-year history here at Macenstein, but the JBL Spot speakers are the first time we've gotten a product that was so all around impressive and affordable that I have...

Amazing sound for the size and price, interchangeable wrappers (comes with black and white, additional colors/patterns available for $9.95 – $19.95 each); did we mention the sound and price

None worth mentioning

Pros: Amazing sound for the size and price, interchangeable wrappers (comes with black and white, additional colors/patterns available for $9.95 – $19.95 each); did we mention the sound and price?

Review: JBL Creature II Speakers

 

A good speaker system for school or office

Easily connects to your Mac or iPod. Makes a design statement

Control sensors on the right were not as responsive as I would like. It is difficult to quickly mute the system. Graphics indicating direction of adjustment for bass and treble are incorrect. Bass and treble controls on subwoofer

Want to delight someone with a gift that reflects your good taste and holiday spirit? JBL Multimedia’s stylish Creature II three-piece speaker system improves the sound coming out of your iPod, Mac, or PC and enhances music, gaming, or movies. Shaped

JBL Creature II

 

JBL needs no introduction; it makes mid-range and high-end systems for homes and cars – and pretty good systems at that. It's one of the feathers in Harman International's profitable cap. This of course is the company that owns and distributes some...

To conclude this weird space trip of a review I can only say the looks of this unit exceed the sonic capabilities, though the latter aren't bad at all. For Rs 5,490 this speaker set is a reasonable purchase, considering you can use it as props at a...

Looking like something from a planet far, far away, the Creature II's unique style combined with above average sound quality and excellent bass should ensure they are a hit.

Unique and stylish design, Touch sensitive Volume Control, Excellent clarity, Great Bass

A little pricey compared to other units, Volume control makes a clicking sound, No visual indicators

JBL Spot Review

 

The problem with many modern speakers is their look. Sitting next to your Mac, they look plain out of place. The JBL Spot may be the first set of speakers to change that.

Tiny satellite and subwoofer system with a big, exciting sound

Can be fiddly to set up and use, satellites lack mid-range punch

It does lack something in the mid-range oomph, which can make some vocals sound a bit weedy, but overall, it’s very, very impressive. Recommended.

My first JBL speaker

 

after hearing a lot of good review from JBL and there respected market of speaker making, I desided to buy on mainly because of the Brand and style.one of the coolest speaker on the market, fashionist can't go wrong with this, but for audio and music...

JBL, one of the few high-end speaker maker from Harman. Super cool shape and design. Great for star wars fan. Sound was ok

this is my first JBL and was a little disappointed by the sound quility of this product. the bass wasn't as deep, and you must spent tons of time adjusting the two bass and treble control to fit every music

Product Specifications

The Northridge E Series EC35 3-way center channel loudspeaker was custom-designed to superbly reproduce the human voice. Many movie soundtracks consist mainly of dialogue, so the center speaker shoulders the burden of filling a home theater. The EC35 easily handles the job. And it's video-shielded, so it can be placed on top of a television. The EC35 performs like a pro, with technology developed by JBL's Professional division. Equipped with JBL's tried-and-true titanium-laminate tweeters and PolyPlas drivers, the speaker reproduces dialogue with extreme clarity. The lows and mids, efficiently boosted by a 3-inch midrange and dual 5-1/4-inch woofers, and assisted by the FreeFlow flared port, are loud and clear, without unwanted distortion or boominess. The Elliptical Oblate Spheroidal (EOS) waveguide ensures that every seat is the best in the house. Since the transducers were purpose-designed to work together harmoniously, JBL's simple Straight-Line Signal Path (SSP) crossover network divides the signal with minimal processing (and minimal opportunity to degrade the signal). Dual sets of sturdy gold-plated, 5-way binding posts enable bi-amping or bi-wiring. With the high, midrange and low frequencies isolated, the EC35's four transducers can reproduce their frequency ranges more efficiently and with greater accuracy. The computer-designed, lock-mitred cabinet virtually eliminates distortion, and its slim European profile won't overpower your room.
