JBL Arena 180 Floorstanding Loudspeakers Pair $599 Delivered @ Digital Cinema


JBL engineers have pioneered the art of bringing world-class sound to audiences for decades. Now, with the Arena 180 floorstanding loudspeaker, they've brought the same amazing experience to your home at a price that won't burn a hole in your wallet. The Arena 180’s High Definition Imaging (HDI) wave-guide and 1-inch (25 mm) soft dome tweeter, along with two 7” (178 mm) poly-cellulose woofers provide the accurate sound intended by top artists and engineers. Inspired by JBL's own M2 Master Reference Monitor, considered by many to be the world’s finest studio monitor, the Arena 180 is a win-win for both legacy and affordability.

Please note that these do require an amp to run and are available to listen to in our showroom in Auburn NSW

  • It's pretty hard finding any current pricing for these online as they're a discontinued line, but from what I can find $600 is a good price. There's a used set on eBay for $660 and ex-demos for over $1500(???). Lots of reviews complain the bass performance is very average though.

  • I think it all comes down to expectations.. a 7" woofer isn't going to bring you a theatre-like experience, but it will bring noticable bass to what you're viewing / listening to. For a set like this, it's always best to pair with a decent amp and subwoofer (10+") to get the best possible experience.

    • I have a pair of VAF DC-X speakers, that look vaguely like these JBL Arena ones.
      (The VAFs have the tweeter in-between a pair of woofers. Which are either 7" or 8" woofers)

      Anyway, the point is that these VAFs have huge, tight, bass response. I also have a 15" sub, but almost never need to turn it on.

      So it's possible to achieve that sort of thing with dual-mid-size woofers. But I don't know if the JBLs do.

  • So tempting except they're white…

  • Hi atish, I am quite interested in getting the speakers from you. Can you also recommend a good sub woofer to go with it? Preferably from JBL too?
    Roughly how long would it take to ship to QLD? Thank you.

  • Hi mate
    Please purchase this online as stock is selling fast.

    We can discuss the sub on Sunday if you can call me at the store on Sunday 1300 859 905

  • This is a smoking hot deal. The problem is that my receiver probably doesn't have the juice to drive them. I think I have around 90w per channel.

    • Sensitivity 88 dB

      these are v. high sensitive
