It seems ridiculous to have to say this, but it is not up to the task of being a full range tower speaker (thankfully *not many* expect it to be since it was clearly designed as a center channel for on-wall mounting), but if you're looking for a dynamic center channel, you'd be hard pressed to beat this one's capability for the price. It images well, as do all the L series speakers from JBL, and it has a distinct advantage over the LC1. Technically the LC1 is a two way MTM (midrange-tweeter-midrange) design, which is prone to lobing (overemphasizing some waves due to bolstering from both sides) and muddying the sound with the HF response in between the two mids. The LC2 is designed as a true vertical array through its midrange 4" transducer, with the bass transducers on the sides (which eliminates lobing issues). This is ideal center channel design.Read more ›
Some things to know about this item. It's uncharacteristically heavy for such a thin speaker; 29 pounds. Was able to hang it on a fireplace wall just fine, but be sure to use some expanding wall anchors. Not a great idea to have this wall-mounted in some place it might be bumped. Feels very well built, better than many more expensive speakers. The JBL LC2 is bi-amp-able if you happen to have a receiver that supports this for the center.
Paired this center with JBL L820 front speakers even though there was room for larger units. Wanted better family approval factor, to stick with matching drivers and the clarity offered by having a 4-way driver setup in the mains. This front setup is well matched and sounds exceptionally clear. There's a lot more detail in the small sounds coming from the front of the listening area.
The previous setup in the same space were enormous 1990s Klipsch KLF-20 3-way fronts with a matched KLF-C7. Klipsch horn drivers are intensely efficient and able to achieve amazing volume levels, especially when bi-amped. They were terrible with dialogue at family-acceptable evening listening levels.
This JBL setup (LC2 and L820) takes up vastly less physical space than my previous loudspeakers and sounds great at lower volume.
Receiver is Onkyo TX-SR876 - delivering 140-watts per channel. Decided not to bi-amp the fronts this time around and this seems to be working well.
I know there are plenty of audiophiles out there that look down on mass produced speakers that sell for reasonable amounts, but, as a former professional soundman, I think my setup sounds great. The tonal match is very complimentary; you just hear the sound move around the room without directional awareness of the speakers.
There are better speakers out there, but for me, given the appearance, dimensions, program material I listen to (mostly movies on Blu-ray), these are perfect. They were easy to mount, the finish is great, and I’m very happy. Highly recommended.

Good sound quality for the money. Get the LC1 if you do not need the additional bass and mid if price or space is a issue. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Burt Hromy
