Just sold the last of my Klipsch speakers, and now I have almost all JBL speakers... JBL2360As (LCR with EV DH1A drivers), JBL 8340A (side, and rear surrounds), JBL 8320 (Atmos ceiling channels). I have to say the setup is sounding better than ever too.

Ok, silly question: I'm an owner of a JBL Charge 2, and the grilles that don't have the JBL logo gives no sound. Is that normal?

Thanks,

Just saw a video of a JBL Charge 2 unit being unmounted, now i see why it doesn't came any sound from the rear end grilles, , For ignorant people like me though their design gives the false impression that all the grilles have speakers, well...

Hello guys .. I am finishing my work in the attic and I'm starting to make an upgrade to my sound system: the Magnat Quantum am going to go to the JBL Studio Series 5. I already bought the JBL Studio 530 and the next purchase will be facing central: to be exact model 520C.
My doubt is that after reading the features it's very, very underpowered compared to the Front Models 580 or 590. I have three options:
1) buy it;
2) buy 2 and put them or in parallel or in series;
3) replace the 520C with other central JBL but without changing the sound of the Series 5. But with what?

Central Ch

Hello Pathfinder, you can try the LC1 (almost same size - twice the power), or LC2.
Being JBL speakers those are timbre match. But trust your ears only...
Does any of your friends have anyone of those to try?. Good Luck!

Agree with aracGuate, go with the LC2. I have 2 of them and have had several other center channel speakers in the past, the LC2's are fantastic.
The mids and woofers are the same tech as the 5 series. Only the horn tech is different. I have found that the 4-way of the LC2 has a very dialog reproduction. I really feel it is due to the 4 drivers each handling a narrower audio range and in doing so, more accurately.

Is the picture above a double center ch system,I had trouble with putting my 3 lc2 on 20in SPK stands they want to tip over so I put a shelf bracket behind them and used the screw holes that are in the SPK and then clamped it to the stand,no more wobbling! Love the lc2 as LCR!

Yes I do have 2 LC2's for my center. The S-Center was just "hanging out" that day. It's not in use or sitting there currently.

Also, the left and right channels are made of S-38's and L820's. The little Northridge speaker in between the stack is gone. The L820's are connected to my Onkyo receiver, the S-38's are connected to a 2 channel Onkyo amp. They also have about a 10° "toe in" to spread the L and R sound field. No comb-filtering or sound cancelation detected. (The sound panels on the side walls help).

Hey guys, I'm looking for some feedback on the LC-2, L830/20/10. I'm able to get a pretty good deal on these and wondered if anyone here had heard them compared to the PSA MTM-210, Triad inroom Bronze LCR or Klipsch KL-650?

The JBL's are the cheapest option but that doesn't always mean they're bad. I have a 7 channel Yamaha system going and it's ok but I can't get near reference level. It's NS-777 towers, NS-444 center and 4 NS-333 bookshelf for surrounds.

Would do 3 LC-2's for the LCR. Unsure of the 4 surrounds. Thinking the L830 unless someone says otherwise.

Any thoughts? Thanks!
