Product Description

Color: Cherry

The JBL Studio L890 is 4-Way, dual 8" floorstanding loudspeaker that gives you great high frequency sound as well as impressive JBL bass. These speakers are designed to bring the superior sound you would get in a live recording into your living room. These speakers are sold individually so you need to order two to get a pair.

Customer Reviews

I would recommend these to anyone who is looking for a great speaker on a budget.

The system sounds great, the highs are very clear and the mid range and bass are excellent.

I purchased a complete Studio L home theater anchored by the L890 over a month ago, and after breaking them in with every style of music, I can can say that these speakers truly deliver the goods. On acoustic Jazz, you can hear into the performance, with a deep and wide soundstage and terrific articulation of each instrument. Bass is full and natural with a solid feeling of the body of the instrument. Horns sound real and arc across the front of my room. The music in 2 channel analog direct mode on my Sony STR-DA5400ES reciever makes my music come to life. These speakers are well balanced from top to bottom, and never emphasize one part of the audio spectrum over another. On Classical music, orchestras sound powerful, and the strings sound rich and full. The speakers present a sweeping panorama of sound. Organs go deep and sound powerful, in fact I can feel the sound of the organ in my chest. Beethoven and Mahler sound like you are there in the concert hall. Rock music really comes alive with drive and punch. The 2 8inch woofers go deep and remind me of how classic stereo speakers used to sound. Every CD or LP I play comes to life and reminds me why I love to listen to music as much as I do. On Blu-Ray movies and concerts, the sound is even more mindblowing than on music. Dialog thru the matching center channel is crisp and clear. The L890's deliver the rest of the sonic goods with clear, rich and involving sound. Explosions and special effects are presented better than in the finest cinema houses. I wall mounted the JBL Studio L matching rear speakers and now enjoy a seamless and truly enveloping sound expierence with every film.Read more ›

I have had these speakers for a little over a month and they sound great. Even though I have a subwoofer, they sound great by themselves. In my opinion, this is a true full range speaker. The detailed highs, pronounced mid and deep lows make this speaker a winner. I not only recommend this speaker, I also recommend the rest of the Studio L line. One word of caution....they will sound really bright at first but they will calm down.

Originally I was not going to consider the JBL Studio line, based on my past opinion of JBL speakers. I looked at JBL 20 years ago - they were very popular, so you could find them in any audio store - and back then they were simply too bright for me. Unnaturally so. That was then.

The JBL studio line is a great series of speakers. They tend to be large physically, so take the measurements into account when you start to research them.

I was originally going to get the L830 speakers, which matched the amount of money I wanted to spend. Before long, I started to realize that I would need a powered Sub-woofer eventually, and that the ~$225 L830 package (From Harman direct) would soon mushroom to way over $500, or so.

So I started to look at the L890. It's a full-range speaker, so it doesn't need a SW to reproduce low frequencies. But what it does need is a big room. You need to be able to place them about 3 feet from the wall to keep the bass from getting muddy. This isn't a huge problem if you don't have the room, unless you crank them up. But sooner or later you'll wish you had them sitting in the middle of the floor of a big empty room. This is what they deserve.

The imaging is quite quite good - I give them a strong B-plus there, and the accuracy is thrilling - I rate them a strong A-minus.
It's hard to grade these speakers, because you get so much for your money.
Sure you could spend thousands more to get an even more spectacular experience, but I just could never justify that kind of expense.

I spent about $680 (shipped) on two of these from Harman direct.These come via freight, the boxes are large and heavy, and I dread the day I'll have to move them to another house.

I bought these because I trust JBL. I have a pair of JBL Decade L-26 speakers that are 33 years old and going strong. Originally I was going to buy some Polks and use them as my rear channel. I listened to the JBL Venue series and was not too impressed, the Studio L's blew them away. They sounded so good my old JBL's will be the rear channel now.

I purchased a set of these speakers refurbished because they were so cheap and its one of the better purchases ive ever made. the l890's deliver pure, full range sound with a precision and clarity that you just wont find in any other speaker in their price range. in fact, i only bought the l890's for the hell of it because they were so cheap but they are now my part of my main system. the highs soar, the midrange is perfect and the dual 8 inch woofers deliver tight, accurate bass.

if youve read the other reviews you may have seen someone mention pairing them with the right equipment. this is very true. when i first hooked these up i felt the bass was lacking and didnt have enough punch for me. remember...these things require POWER! if you have a modestly powered amp or receiver you may be disappointed with the bass reproduction. the l890's are biampable and i would suggest feeding them plenty of power if you plan on getting the most out of these speakers.

now lets say youve decided to purchase your very own set of l890's heres a little bit of advice. remember the equipment pairing issues, give them power! and if you really have to have deep, powerful bass i would also suggest getting a powered subwoofer. hope this review helps.
