Great speakers


My home theater has all JBL loft speakers. 2 loft 30's, loft 20 and these loft 50's. So happy with all of them. My girlfriend bought all Infinity for almost triple the cost and my JBL's sound as good or better. Really love all these speakers. Plus...

Very cheap for how great they sound Easy setup. Solid construction. I have read they need break in, but sound outstanding out of the box

I highly recommend these speakers. These are just things to consider when buying. -Big box with a drawing on the outside showing exactly what it is - might not what to have this on your door step all day. -Little rubber feet dont stick very well.

not bad for the price


It depends on personal taste. After connecting this speakers to my 20 years old "made in US" solid state power amplifier, I laughed. It sounds like "public announcement". I have used 20 years "made in California" Infinity speakers. It could be ok for...

1. price 2. unique design 3. good specification

1. easy to fall down, too thin and too tall 2. "bright" sound -- like expensive computer speakers... 3. lack of harmony and balance of "music" sound

JBL Quality...Excellent


Definitely recommend.

Easy assembly. (The feet need 4 screws each.) Looks nice. Great sound quality. Clear highs, full midrange, Plenty of bass having two 6 1/2" woofers per speaker. I filled out the complete system with a Loft 20m Center channel , and 2 Loft 40's for...

Pretty Darn Good Sounding Speakers for the $


They came in two days- pretty quick for three bucks shipping. They are not a bad sized speaker. So far I am very pleased.

These JBL's sound pretty decent for one hundred and fifty bucks (assuming the rebate comes through). I am using them by themselves without any center channel, sub's or rears. They are not as efficient as many other, more expensive speakers, but I can...

My wife wishes they were another color and may paint them (except the grills). She also thinks they are intimidating size-wise.

With Loft 40 rears ($60) and a Paradigm PDR 10 subwoofer ($145 used) I have a wonderful system for a great price. I love Newegg. Got a Denon AVR-75 for $79 used and complete system was only $433.

Sound great, Compact, Great price now only $149 after rebate. More than 30% less than on ama...

Not wireless. Not very pretty; really need to be cherry wood.

Just wow


I can only do an apples to oranges review, since my last tower speakers were 8" MTX monitors over ten years ago, since then, I have had bookshelf speakers consisting of pre-klipsch Energy 6-1/2 inchers, then a set of 5-1/2 inch older Infinitys, and...

Clarity, depth and fullness of sound, sound output, size, weight. Ease of hookup.

Not bi-amped. Had to use multi-purpose cement on the tiny rubber feet. Lack of carpet spikes. Jbl's poor packaging leaves little to protect the speakers during transit. I live in an apartment (my neighbors love me /sarcasm).

for the size and prize at $150 it's a good buy, I have a pair of older JBL's that don't require as much power to work at it's optimum, with these new ones I have to turn the volume up higher, the sound is great though, highs, med's and lows, right a...

minor Con: that they require at least 50 or 60 watts of output so they can work at it's optimum, while the older ones I have only require 10 to 20 watts, but that's no problem I can work around it because my receiver's max RMS is 110 Watts.

Great speakers for $150


Got the speakers during sale for about $150. Initially, they are intended to be placed along side of my playroom TV to replace a busted soundbar system. But after I connected them to my SMSL Q5 DAC/Amp, I found them to be perfect computer speakers. My...

Great highs Good mid Surprising amount of base Perfect height Well packaged

Heavy? If that can be considered a con.
