JBL SCS160SI Home Speaker System Reviewed

 

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......

Nice in my small living room.

 

I've had these for about 3 months now after purchasing them on sale at a big retailer. I have a 11X17 living room and these speakers fill it very nicely. I don't have the most refined audio tastes or listen at very high volumes, but I enjoy these...

Very pleasant smooth sound

Included mouting hardware needs more adjustment options

Highly Recommend

 

I love these speakers. Being a musician, I feel JBL is the brand for quality speakers. Initially felt they were a little thin in the mid-range. I supplement them with a JBL Northridge Center channel speaker. ($80 e-bay,delivered) What a sound! This...

Size, Clarity, Plenty of Grunt

Mid-range is a little thin

Awesome Speakers for both Movies and Music

 

There is not much to say other then these speakers sound awesome even at low volume levels. Unlike some reviews theses speakers sound great for Music. I am using the Pioneer VSX-D914k A/V. I absolutely love them.

Crisp clean sound and comes with brackets

I would have like to see the brackets be able to point down

Nice small speaker

 

This speakers put out a very big sound in a very small package. If you are looking for a surround sound system that doesn't job in your face when you walk in the room, this is it. It's ten times better than a comparable bose system, a fourth of the pric

The sub is not great. There is a lot of variation in output at different frequencies between 20-100 hertz. It is very difficult to calibrate and make music sound good. However, it works well for movies. The satellite speakers don't put out anything ab

What can I say, this system is awesome. I spent weeks comparing systems, listening to them and I chose JBL. I am not dissapointed. The sub is clear and accurate and the satelites work great

The sub's volume level is hard to match to the overall system, I have to set it each time according to the movie. The center channel is a simply a satelite turned on it's side, I need to upgrade to a better center channel

Product Specifications

With five identical satellites, a matching horizontal center speaker and a floor-shaking 150-watt subwoofer, the SCS160SI completes your 5.1 or 6.1 surround system. (If your receiver only has 5.1 channels, just save the extra satellite until you upgrade.) The five satellites are true 2-way speakers with advanced titanium-laminate-dome tweeters and dual drivers for more sound power and realism. The center channel speaker is identical to the satellites for seamless pans, with two midranges for extra power and clarity in the dialogue channel, but is configured for horizontal placement on top of many televisions. The satellite and center speakers are all video-shielded for placement near a television. The room-shaking 150-watt powered subwoofer delivers the excitement of thunderous, penetrating bass. All cables and satellite wall-mount brackets are included.
