I'm pretty sure they are normal speakers. They're 2-way passive designs and will work with any suitable amp I'm quite sure. They're being marketed as a "system" but that's what it is, marketing.

Looking into buying JTR 212HT for LCR

Now I'm trying to solve my surround choice, rear, side and I'm also wanting to do Atmos (2 x Front heights, 2 x rear heights)


Can someone please recommend a JBL Pro speaker for surrounds that will keep up with the JTRs?

thanks!

The recommended amp, DCi 8|300, is 300 watts, so it's not crazy power

Merry Christmas to all you JBL users. Hope you all get M2's in your stockings tonight!

Wishing I could post in the Ultra Hi-End HT Gear ($20,000+)

Hahaha! Thank you and Merry Christmas to you!

I did get M2's for Christmas actually!! I had one of the amps out for repair and got it back on the 22nd. I am listening again(after a 3 week dry spell) as I type and I'm stuck in my chair when I should be wrapping, lol!!

M2's are truth man, make no doubt about it. Not everyone will like them, of course, but those people are confused....haha!! (j/k )

I had my old SHO-10's as mains for those 3 weeks and never once had the urge to sit and listen to music. I think I'm auditorily spoiled.

Jbl l890

I have a pair of JBL L890 that I bought in 2008. To my surprise one day a couple years ago I removed the grill and basically all the the drivers were completely crumpled (blown?). I went ahead and order replacement; within a short time the drivers were all crumpled again. I recently started looking in the internet about problems with these speakers, it seems that it is a very common malady with JBL these days (what a shame). I do not know if it is the main board located inside the cabinet, or the drivers themselves.

Now, the quandary in which I find myself is: do I sent them to be repair? or just forget about it, and get better quality speakers, since the replacement electronic components that drive these speakers might be just as bad quality as the ones in mine.

You're pretty much all wet there. Not exactly sure what you're on about, but if its caved in dust caps, (the little dome in the center of the speaker), this is by no means "normal" and is only caused by pets and little people pushing them in. The only reason it would be considered a "common malady" is that you do see it sometimes in used speakers for sale.

So if you want to know what's causing it, look around the house for the culprit. The "main board" is called a crossover, and has no relationship to caved in cones.

Thanks for your input, but there are no pets or little people, adults only. just all transducers domes being crumpled after being replaced with new ones again.

I bought a pair of L890s back in '06, still working perfectly. The domes can not get pushed in, unless someone did either on purpose, by accident, or the speakers took a bumpy ride, and not properly protected.

Custom, one of a kind pair, MJC212 mains, mod PT800 center, PT800 surrounds, SUB1500s. Parasound P7, Citation 19, Parasound HCA2205A, HK AVR3600, Marantz TT, Denon disc player, MacBook Pro w/ DragonFly usbDAC.

Nevertheless someone has done that for you, it doesn't just spontaneously happen.

Thinking of picking up some 3677 for my LR speakers and maybe a center. Never heard them and have no idea where I could audition them. Anyone who has heard them. What would you compare them to? Currently I am running klipsch Reference series rc-64II and rf-82II for LRC. They are higher sensitivity than the 3677 and my center has a 1.75" compression driver 100db or so.
