JBL SCS180.6S

 

Well-rounded two-way, three-driver satellites; muscular 10-inch, 150-watt powered subwoofer; includes wall-mount brackets.

The satellite speakers look like refugees from an HTIB.

JBL's potent SCS180.6 speaker package can humble its pint-size competition.

"Very Impressed!! Once again, JBL has delivered."

 

I purchased this product refurbished from Harman Kardon (harmanaudio on ebay) as my first home theater surround sound system. At $130, I was not expecting an IMAX audio experience in my living room, but was very surprised to find that these speakers...

Small footprint. Stylish and blends well with almost any decor.

Center channel speaker lacks power, but can be boosted with a good receiver.

Great for use as rear satallites

 

I matched this set with a pair of JBL monitors I own and gave me 7.1 capability with my Sony STR-DG800 receiver. They sound great. Full engulfing sound and sub shakes the walls and provides the effect I've been looking for.

Dual woofers, GREAT sub

larger than prefered, blah styling

Great Speakers but hold back a little

 

These are great speakers for a decent budget (especially now that prices have dropped) I now a have a 7.1 so my speakers don't match setup. I love the JBL's tons but sometimes I feel like they hold back on me a little. It is not a big deal because my...

BLOWN AWAY!

 

started researching surround sound speakers to go with my new Samsung 42" HDTV and a Yamaha 7.1 AV receiver, when lo and behold Future Shop advertises a sale on the JBL SCS180.6. From cruising the JBL web site, it appears that this is a newer silver...

Inexpensive, but works with most HDTV's decor

Looks like cheap Computer Sat speakers (But you'd be wrong)

Precise Crisp sound for an unbeatable price!

 

I purchased this system with a receier for an excellent deal at a local Electronics store for and outcome price of $250 for the speakers; therefore my review is based on a low price. The most noticable thing when you hook these bad boys up is the...

Clear Highs, Thumping lows, increadable well rounded package

Product Specifications

With five identical satellites, a matching horizontal center speaker and a floor-shaking 150-watt subwoofer, the SCS180.6S completes your surround system. 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 dialog 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.
