Amazing product for an incredible price!
 
I bought this system as a system to go into my room for music and entertainment purposes, but mostly for music. I bought these because i am a huge fan of JBL and they have done good for me. And boy did they do a good job with these! As soon as I took the speakers out of the box I could tell that they were incredibly well constructed. They were completely set up in less than 30 minutes and i was shaking the house in 35!Sound:The Satellites have very crisp sound for being such small 2 ...

Fixed my issue
 
I had a cheap surround system that was unable to clearly handle the background sound from the Blu-ray. These JBL's not only handle it, but handle it with ease. I cranked the sound all the way up and there was zero distortion. The sub woofer is excellent an I am very pleased with my purchase! What's great about it: Great price, excellent sound quality What's not so great: no complaints I would recommend this to a friend!

Fantastic system for its size
 
We have these in two different rooms and have never once felt they were underpowered or unbalanced. These speakers are stealthy; they almost invisibly fill the room with crisp (but not tinny), powerful sound. If you are looking to impress people with how big your speakers are, these are not for you. If you are looking for a system to annoy neighbors in surrounding houses, you will need a bigger (10" or more) subwoofer and bigger mids.

Subwoofer went bad
 
Lots of reports of a bad subwoofer. Mine too. Pain in the butt. Sounded fine but you get what you pay for. Now I gotta pay for another subwoofer. Steer clear.

Best bookshelf speakers for the money!
 
I have done some extensive research trying to find the speakers set for my home theater (Pioneer AV Receiver, Internet Media Center, Cable box all connected via HDMI to the Reciver)I needed something compact with good frequency range, and these speakers met and exceeded all of my expectation for easiness of installation, frequency range, and components that came in the box. Subwoofer was much bigger and better than I expected, cables were long enough to connect rear surround speakers and h...

Subwoofer Died Too Soon
 
I have owned these speakers for about 6 years. They are ok sounding for the price - I paid $150 for them on sale. I am not a serious audiophile. I just wanted a system that was small and unobtrusive at a low price for occasionally watching movies and listening to music. I don't use these speakers on a daily basis because I live in a small building with hard wood floors and I try to be a courteous neighbor. They are more of a "nice to have" so that goes to show you how serious I am about speaker ...

Subwoofer does not last.
 
The subwoofer died after 3 years. It started making loud clicking noises whenever it was turned on whether or not there was any input. I did not use it more than a few hours a week and never at very loud volumes as I live in an apartment.However, the 4 satelllites and the centre speaker are still going strong. The system produces good sound considering the small size of the speakers and the subwoofer was pretty good while it lasted.

Great speakers but flaky subwoofer
 
It's a great product for the price. I have had 2 sets purchased over the last 8 years. My first was a SCS 135.5 purchased back in 2002 and other one was 145.5 purchased in 2008. In both cases, the subwoofer went bad. The speakers are still running fine from both versions but the subwoofers make loud drumming or wooing noise when powered ON. Technical support acknowledged that the amplification module in the sub has gone bad. Cost to repair this would be around $125-140. I bought a equivalent SON...

You get what you pay for on these...
 
I was replacing old JBL surround speakers that were great and also economically priced in their day, so when it came time for new ones I went with a JBL package set again. After reading a number of reviews here and at other sites I saw a similar trend in rankings, high, and I bought them witrhouth listening to them, my mistake. Taking the issues by importance would put the sound first, I suspect this in a large degree is shaped by the very small size of the speakers and the inability to deliver ...

Great price but sub was a lemon
 
I bought this product based on the price and the reviews I read online. It seemed like the best bang for my buck. If you are looking for a system that will shake your house/apartment, this is not it. It sounds like what you would expect for the price. They are good speakers for your first surround sound system.The main reason I gave it 1 star was because about two months after purchase, the subwoofer started emitting a very high pitched ringing that was unbearable. I am currently in the mi...
