Bought these after listening to many, many different selections of outdoor speakers. Found these to have the best range of sound and much better bass than most.

These are gret for the price, i use them for music in a second room. The highs on these are super clean, decent mids and pretty good base for 6" speaks. The bass is lacking if you really enjoy bass, but with a decent reciever, im running a Yamaha on...

I do not actually own this product....YET! Like a good boy I did my research for about a week on the internet and found 4 different speakers to look at around the $200 range. The first was big KLH speakers with a 10" woofer. They were pretty big and...

I bought these speakers (N26II) based on JBL's reputation and the positive reviews on various sites. I even compared them to similar priced speakers including the Infinity IL 10BLK which is also a 2 way with 6” driver. I found that I liked the sound of...

I recently bought these speakers as a Christmas present for my girlfriend and they are fantastic. Reiterating what the others said, beautiful, crisp, articulate highs, and powerful lows (considering the 6-inch driver). Very impressed with the sound,...

Big Bang for the Buck


After having a custom entertainment center built, I began to research bookshelf size speakers to use in the unit. I needed something that had excellent sound that would serve well in a room about 300 square feet. After reading reviews, I decided on the...

clean crisp sound, inexpensive, good looking

My first set was delivered defective; replacement pair has been flawless

N26 is #1 for the bang and the buck...


After serious comparison with Yamaha's units, Bose's 201's and 301's and, Polk's, KLH's, Sony's and even JBL's other speakers in the series including their S series I bought the N-26's. Using side by side comparison testing when possible and some...

Low price, superb sound to speakers two to three times their cost, not bulky

Mounting brackets nearly impossible to find and are expensive

Not Too Shabby!


I heard these at Best Buy, and compared them to a set of Bose and Yamaha Bookshelf speakers. The JBL's sounded the best (although not that great in the HUGE store environment).

Very Good Quality for a bookshelf speaker

Bass could be tighter, case could use improvement

Decent outdoor speakers (Model N24AW)


This review is of the model below the N26AW, the N24AW, which has a smaller woofer but it includes mounting brackets, which the N26AW do not.

Review of the N24AW speaker: good sound, easily mounted

None so far

Consumer review (

Outdoor use only


When I first tried these speakers out, I was discouraged. When I compared them side-by-side to my indoor speakers, I could easily hear a very noticeable overemphasis in the 1KHz to 4KHz range. To hear this, imagine you're listening to a full orchestra,...

Adequate sound

Just adequate sound, difficult to mount
