Bottom Line:   
Well I bought these speakers bout 5 years ago. I didn't really know what quality audio was back then. At the time they looked nice and were very affordable, so I gave em a shot. After years of listening to them and listening to many other systems I've concluded these Movies 2 and Music 2 speaker systems aren't all that great. The sub is very weak. Alot of port noise is audible when its turned up to a decent level. I think smooth bass is fine with it but once you do the pounding fast bass the sub can't handle it. The problem might be that it's lacking a lowpass crossover or a steep slope crossover. I notice voice is audible through the subs. The satellites sound really dead. Not much detail in music. Depth of the music is not really perceptible. No I am not bashing the other reviewers here, but if you really listen and notice... It is really what i state. Good thing bout the system are... they're pretty affordable and they look very stylish. I even have the stands for them. =) I power these with a VSX-D3S Pioneer Reciever.

Bottom Line:   
The surround sound speakers sound sooooo good and at 50 dollars on ubid, i couldnt ask for a better price. However, ever since i got the subwoofer, it never sounded right. It always sounded like the cone was broken. So never really used it. However, now that i have my system complete, I want to use the subwoofer. So i took the sub apart to see if maybe one of the cones were broken and the bottom cone is completely detached. Is this product still under warranty? Does anyone know if JBL can send me a new one? I bearly ever used it because it always sounded funny.

Bottom Line:   
Bass unit has a small footprint as it stands straight up but the two relatively small 5 1/4" dirvers in the sub enclosure are driven by a 100W amp. This systems delivers BASS. I am using two sets (4 sats and two sub units) for my home theater and it sounds tremendous. I got these for $220 a set online and feel they are a tremedous value. The sats put out the mids and highs authoritatively and the fronts sit at an optimum height mounted on my Music2 stands. I look forward to turning this system on every time. The HT is capped with a Yamaha 595 and even though the amp might be light on watts, the speakers do not require that much power. Since the 595 is a good clean amp, the Music2's do stay very clear and crisp at hgiher levels and the bass powerful but not boomy.

Bottom Line:   
Beatiful sound across the spectrum. The subwoofers may begin to fade towards the lower (-50Hz) levels but stay sharp and tight for the most part. The tweeter and dual mid project well and place the music right out in front. The set has good power handling capabilites and maintains its clarity right up to its RMS of 120W with a good amp. Considering I paid $500 for these almost three years ago, I have loved every bit of music I have played on these. If you can still find them, I highly recommend them as they are a tremendous value. I don't know why JBL discontinued these, but Razor's statement below is making me wonder...

2.1 Music Mp3 setup, advice needed.

I am new to the home theater/ audiophile market.

These are alot quieter then my z-640s (even with daniel Ks driver mod), and just don't fi ... Read More »
