    RRP seems ….inflated

  •  

    how to connect to speakers, bluetooth or aux in?

  •  

    Definitely inflated rrp, not much info on these but seems like passive speakers so you’ll need an amp

    Peak wattage and no rms is kinda dodgy

    got these for this price 4 years ago from HN clearance centre. Use with a lepai T-amp for my computer setup… for this price they are very very good. A very clean sound.

    The date back to something like 2005!

    Be that as it may, I dont think you're going to find cheaper if you want a traditional bookshelf type spk.

    They look quality enough, banana posts and all and they actually have a crossover and tweeter unlike some pc speakers.

    Did these guys find a pallet load from 15 yrs ago?

    86dB means you probably need some kind of decent amp. Freq resp is allegedly 68hz so they're not lying.

    Use a good amp and these will really knock out most pc speakers.

      Speaker drivers have not evolved anywhere near as rapidly as other technology and, to an extent, they don't really need to. For decades you've been able to get speakers that have pretty flat response curve and a wider frequency range than people can hear. I have a forty year old set of speakers with Kef drivers that sound as good as many high end speakers available today. The crossovers have been replaced once after being driven rather hard for years, but they've got a few decades left in them.

        Yup. I have a few pairs of 1960s vintage speakers in different brands and varieties that sound incredible and none of them have even had crossover work! I've been promised they'll sound even better with new crossover caps but I'm tempted to leave them as is. Might look into getting duplicate crossovers though so I can swap them in & out for A-B comparison but I'm not sure it's worth the hassle as I like em as they are :)

    Something wrong with this. There seems to be no limit in their inventory. There's no way they can have 10000 of these speakers.
    Buyer beware

    How do these compare with the Altec Lansing which are around the same price?

  •  

    Any recommended amp to pair this with PC?

  •  

    I am very tempted to get these to replace my Creative T40 II's.

    At the same time I rarely use the Creative speakers haha and I'd have to buy an amp/DAC.

      Same here, too good a deal to miss however more clutter to buy - amp and speakers which don't get used. I'll sleep on it and reassess in the morning.

  •  

    JBL’s good sounding speakers seems to start with the JBL Studio 230.

  •  

    I have a Samsung TV JU7000 series whose sound I don't like at the best of times. Would these speakers and an amp give me better sound? I'm looking for better base and better treble if possible but don't want to spend money on a subwoofer.

  •  

    Hey guys! Music producer here. I'm not sure about this particular brand but if you're new to music production at this price this is a steal for entry level near field monitoring.

      how can you not be sure about jbl?..as in you haven't heard of jbl?

      • +3 votes

        Ha, too funny hey. The JBL brand and all associated 'Lansing' brands would have to be one of the oldest speaker designer/manufacturers ever and used in literally millions of professional recording studios across the globe for the last 80+ years! If you really want a good place to start with real studio monitors then there's a pair of very well respected 4355s currently on Gumtree I've been eyeing off as that's an excellent price however I just don't have the storage space for such beasts :(

        •  

          as a 'bargainner' I definitely would be searching for a second hand pair of speakers/musical instruments. Some obviously are over priced but over the years I have purchased some excellent reference speakers/bookshelf speakers. These are probably a good buy for new however.

          Thanks, looking at those speakers, I now know what JBL stands for. You really can learn something new each day!

          •  

            @strangeloops66: JBL is now owned by 'Harman' (as in Harman Kardon) which is a sub of Samsung so yeah, everyone own everyone these days. Not a bad thing, just interesting and difficult to keep up with sometimes.

      •  

        Just saying that I haven't tested these out for the frequency curve response, I like it as flat as possible. I've never seen a near field studio monitor this cheap before, wow! I would have snapped these up when I started building my studio as entry level monitors. I've had my setup for over 15 years now so I've been out of the game for a while, market has changed I suppose.

    I've got an old Sonos connect amp that I wouldn't mind getting working again. Does anyone know if these would suit that?

    •  

      It would

    •  

      yep. but like steveandbelle mentioned you probably would pick up something better for that price on gumtree etc.

    •  

      These would work perfectly with the SONOS AMP. Add a small Sub and you'll be blown away! Of course it all depends what type of system you want to build though… these would work really well and offer amazing bang for buck but if you wanted something with a bit of a vintage vibe then yeah, have a look around eBay & Gumtree for some classics and use them on the SONOS and be equally as blown away… but expect to pay $200-$300 for a decent pair in VGC. A nice little pair of old Pioneers with the lattice grille are a good place to start but there are literally hundreds to choose from.

        How do you put a sub on the connect amp? is it some sort of active thing
        ahh, just looked, there's sub port on the back, thanks

        •  

          You invested very well in the SONOS AMP! I bought my first back in 2007… well before they created the all-in-one 'Speakers' they have now and slowly added more CONNECTs and AMPs to my system until I'd filled the house. Such a huge risk back then as no-one else had them but I now have a mix of modern SONOS 'Speaker' devices as well as the original 12+ year old AMPs and CONNECTs and everything works seamlessly with each other. Pure brilliant devices. I can drop the needle on an LP and pump it back through my SONOS mesh via a CONNECT and hear it play throughout the house. That seems to blow many visitors minds ;) Still the most versatile units available!

          •  

            @SteveAndBelle: Yeah, I think I got mine through an Amazon import from Europe so long ago I don't remember. It's served us well.
            Looks like I've missed this one though.

  •  

    Could these work as a decent pair of bookshelf speakers for TV and music with an entry Yamaha/Harmon Kardon amp?

  •  

    Damn, was just about to order a pair
