JBL N26
38 Reviews
rating  4.42 of 5
MSRP  160.20
Description: An aluminum woofer cone is used, mounted to a precision die-cast aluminum basket using a high- roll butyl surround. The basket is vented to provide additional cooling of the motor structure. Maximized for performance in small sealed, vented, and bandpass enclosures. Check out the Box and Parameter Sheet available for download. Kappa Perfect truly bridges the gap between subwoofers intended for SPL and those intended for sound quality. If you're looking for a subwoofer that sounds great and hits

Bottom Line:   
Bought these after listening to many, many different selections of outdoor speakers. Found these to have the best range of sound and much better bass than most.

Bottom Line:   
These are gret for the price, i use them for music in a second room. The highs on these are super clean, decent mids and pretty good base for 6" speaks. The bass is lacking if you really enjoy bass, but with a decent reciever, im running a Yamaha on these, and put in something with a little base tehy perform nicely. Also they will go as loud as my 125 Watt per chanel amp will drive them without fatigue or distortion. Overall great speaks for the money

Bottom Line:   
I do not actually own this product....YET! Like a good boy I did my research for about a week on the internet and found 4 different speakers to look at around the $200 range. The first was big KLH speakers with a 10" woofer. They were pretty big and had more bass than the JBL's and sounded almost as good. BUT they had to be played louder to sound as good. The JBL's sounded good at any volume level. They have an amazing bass response for their size and they can hold that bass for a very decent volume. I think they sound fuller than the 3-way 8" JBL bookshelf speaker (u might not believe me but seriously)!! The highs are so well dispersed i cant believe how wide and spacious they sound. There was another guy next to me looking at the same speaker and he also was checking to make sure a sub wasn't on... it sounded like it!! They have a very good design and the speaker material is superb. The N26 outdoor sounded horrible to these. Sony, KLH, Yamaha, and and small Bose cant match these. I have to say the closest you'll get to these it a big pair of bose towers or a tower yamaha...(still not that great for the size)

Bottom Line:   
I bought these speakers (N26II) based on JBL’s reputation and the positive reviews on various sites. I even compared them to similar priced speakers including the Infinity IL 10BLK which is also a 2 way with 6” driver. I found that I liked the sound of the JBL much better. I use these speakers as my mains for my surround system with a sub woofer and they do an excellent job. Great for music too. I have them matched with an N CenterII and will be adding the N24II’s for surrounds soon.
Infinity is a good speaker in that price range also, it just depends on what you like to here.

Bottom Line:   
I recently bought these speakers as a Christmas present for my girlfriend and they are fantastic. Reiterating what the others said, beautiful, crisp, articulate highs, and powerful lows (considering the 6-inch driver). Very impressed with the sound, especially for the price.
