JBL Northridge N28


These are the perfect all around speaker. I'm using them for both the rear on my 9.2 system as well as the front height speakers. In that these are omni directional speaker, the palcement is not as critical - this provides a high degree of flexibility...

Omni directional speakers that provide a high level of flexibility in setting up your system

None noted to date to date, if anything wish the binding post were deeper set - but this is a minor issue

Product Specifications

This 2-way 8" bookshelf loudspeaker with MDF enclosure reproduces sound with unmatched clarity and power. The PolyPlas (polymer-coated cellulose fiber) cone woofer features traditional JBL engineering; the same technologies used in JBL's Professional equipment that can be found in stadiums, music halls and move theaters around the world. Shielded components allow placement near video monitors. High-temperature, oversized Kapton voice coil and HeatScape motor structure allow these speakers to effortlessly play all types of movies and music. A low-diffraction IsoPower baffle directs the sound power into the room, reducing distortion caused by cabinet vibration. The lock-mitred, computer-designed enclosure requires no bracing. The FreeFlow flared port increases bass response without adding unwanted port noise. JBL's custom-designed drivers allow the use of simple, Straight-line Signal Path (SSP) crossover networks feature high-quality electrical components that minimize processing that could degrade the signal.
