JBL Venue Series Balcony 4-Inch 2-Way Wall Speakers (Pair)

These are wonderful (rear surround) speakers for the price. They've got a nice, balanced sound, and the dual top ports allow for reasonable bass for their size. The Venue series is JBL's replacement for the Northridge E Series, but they tend to look a...

JBL Control 1 Xtreme

What you are about to read is partly a review of the JBL speakers known as CONTROL 1Xtreme, partly an essay about how I rediscovered stereo, and partly a tale of audiofool upgrade fever run amuck.

JBL SCS145.5

The JBL SCS145.5S home theater speaker system hits that magical sweet spot that balances affordability with quality audio reproduction. The stylishly subdued SCS145.5S is a complete 5.1 system, with four identical satellites for the front and rear...

JBL Cinema Sound CS680

For a heavily bass-driven system, the CS680 speakers perform very well across the range, but they do struggle to reproduce fast and punch bass.

JBL S312BE 3-Way Floor-Standing Speaker (Beech)

Love these speakers. To bad they don't make them anymore! I have the set of "studio series" matching speakers, and love the look as well as the sound. These are very efficient speakers, and bring out everything. I especially enjoy them for music, but...

Being on a budget, I was looking for a theater speaker system to purchase to get me through until I could afford a real system. I've used JBL on a previous stereo, so when I found these used for $150 I took a chance. And I must say, I was surprised...

JBL Soundgear 2020 - Mini system - radio / 3xCD / dual cassette - gray

I purchessed the JBL Sound Gear2020, and had found that I was really satisfied with this product. For the cost and and quality I found that is was worth the price. I was really suprised for the only review was kinda low as in prase. It wasn't too...

JBL E90 Black Ash 40.25 in Floor Speaker

You get a super crisp sound. By up grading from my old Bozaks to the JBL was like turning on a new receiver. Great speakers for the money you don't need to spend a lot for great sound. I love them.

I Purchased these as rear speakers to complete surround sound set. I had no idea that they would sound sooo nice! They have a wonderful range of response and the resolution is great! After plugging them in, I ended up routing all power just to them and...

Not long ago, I had some friends over to listen to several sets of speakers I had in for review. After pouring over the same music tracks repeatedly, it was unanimous with the entire group that the smallest speaker ensemble......

JBL N38 2-way 4" Bookshelf Weather Resistant (Each)

These babies make up for the lack of low end with pure clarity. All you need to suppliment these units with is a 12 powered sub with a crossover at 100Hz. Using measuring equipment, I found the response to be VERY flat for sub $5,000 speakers. You can...

JBL Northridge NSP1

Best value out there, fantastic sound. Its amazing the sound quality that comes out of these speakers, never thought a 4 1/2 woofer could produce accurate base. I added a JBL subwoofer, and it's outstanding sound. I have this in a large room, 700+ sq...

I purchased the JBL PSW-D115 about the year 2000. It died within 6 months, sent it back, it was the power supply or circuit board. It worked another few months, same problem, sent it back. It worked another few months, but then it was out of warranty....

I have owned this subwoofer for about nine years, and it only recently had some trouble. I realize it's kinda pointless to review equipment that is nearly a decade old, but there is a fair amount of negative press for this item that I thought I might...

JBL Studio S412P

The reason i found that the speakers sound really heavy and boomy in the low end is directly due to the fact that they're 12" speakers especially if the amplifier that's running them isn't of good quality. I have set up quite a few systems for people...

JBL PB-12 Subwoofer

I bought the JBL PB-12 in 2002 and have had zero problems. I have no idea what the chance of that was, but I'm thankful given all the angst in the other postings. It's 2011, nine years later and am planning on continuing to use it. Or I can use these...

JBL Professional PRX618S

I wasn't expecting that this would be such a big unit--but that's not a bad thing. It puts out really nice sound and has a tough exterior. The only thing that I could have potentially brought down the rating is the fact that the speaker pole mount is...

JBL L112 - (Floorstanding Speakers)

I have owned several pairs of JBL loudspeakers over the years. Athena 99s, L86s, L-100s and the L-112s, which I bought new in 1982. They all sounded pretty good, but the L-112s stand out among them. Very balanced and built like a tank. They will...

I was use to Advent Mini Towers mated to a Denon Integrated amp @ 50 watts/ channel. My equipment was vintage 1989. I bought the JBL E30 speakers because they are JBL's. JBL makes really good speakers that handle a lot of power - 125 watts max. I put...
