Use them as front speakers in my surround system and I couldn't be happier. If you want some bass add a sub. I have them mounted on the wall and they match our wall color pretty close (offwhite). I'm not an adiophile so I can't speak to their clarity...

Compact size, wall mountable, affordable, sound better than anything else I've ever owned

Matched with excellent Onkyo and NAD equipment that has made maggies others sing, I unfortunately found a lot of real emotion in the speakers. They sound somewhat forced and clear emphasis of certain frequencies (probably near the crossover points)...

Straightforward sound for the money

Colorations in multiple frequency points, limit of reality in vocals

I can't say enough good things about this surprising speaker. Bought it to use as rears, put it on top of my front speaker to see how it sounds, and it has stayed there since! Works a treat with my Paradigm PS1000 subwoofer. Good for both HT and...

Excellent coherent sound from upper bass to the top of the freq range. Good Dynamic contrast at low and high volumes. Clear, extended, open sound with good detail and timing

Weak bass, but then this is by design as they were designed for use as rears in a HT setup with a sub

Installed the AW (all-weather) version this week in my house. Chose AW (rather than black) because they are an inconspicous off-white color and blend in very well with the living room walls. Hardly noticeable. The best instructions I have ever seen...

Exceptionally well-designed. Solid feel. Great sound and ease of installtion. They come with a template so that you will drill the hoses properly, mounting screws, wall cushion pads, and even a level

The mounting screws, which allow the speaker to point downward at a slight angle, are just barely long enough to go through 5/8" drywall to a the wall stud. Another 1/4" would have been comforting

I purchased a pair of JBL S26 several months ago and love them. I use the S26's with the suberb JBL s-center channel speaker. I wanted to add another pair of JBL studio speakers for the rear surround channels and the S36's seemed like a great choice....

Superb sound. Compact. Versatile

Product Specifications

The S36II is a unique horizontal mirror-image nearfield/midfield monitor that brings the studio experience into your living room. This 3-way 6" loudspeaker in a molded enclosure with Elliptical Oblate Spheroidal (EOS) waveguide reproduces sound with unparalleled spaciousness and definition. It may be wall-mounted or placed on a shelf either horizontally or vertically. The pure-titanium tweeter and the midrange transducer are mounted on a Linear Field Proximity (LFP) bezel that ensures a seamless transition between the middle and high frequencies. 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 movie 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. The woofers are built on cast-aluminum frames, which reduce distortion and increase power-handling capability. A low-diffraction IsoPower baffle directs the sound power into the room, reducing distortion caused by cabinet vibration. The sealed enclosure ensures tight, undistorted bass with no boominess. JBL's custom-designed drivers allow the use of simple, Straight-Line Signal Path (SSP) crossover networks with high-quality electrical components that minimize processing that could degrade the signal. All Studio Series loudspeakers are equipped with all-metal, 5-way, gold-plated binding post speaker terminals.
