5.0 out of 5 stars Nice speakers for quality/price, January 16, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: JBL CS6100BG High-Performance Complete 6-Piece Home Theater Speaker System with Brackets (Black Gloss) (Electronics)
I just installed these a couple of days ago. I am replacing some entry level Sony speakers that were part of a DVD/home theatre system. Over a year ago I upgraded to a Samsung LCD screen television, so I had to scrap the 6 disc DVD player that came with the Sony speaker set to get a Sony receiver with HDMI connections for my television. I bought a 100 watt powered Sony subwoofer, but kept the Sony satellites & center speaker. I felt the surround sound & it sounded ok, but not as clear as I would like. The bass from the Sony sub was ok when it was turned up all the way which isn't good for any powered sub. I tell you what, the JBL's rock!! Literally... The 300 watt sub shakes the whole house. And I only have it turned up tad over halfway. And the satellites & center speaker sound very clear. I am getting a true surround sound experience now. I am picking sounds I never did before.

The speakers are very pleasing to look at with the high gloss black finish & they are very durable & heavy. The mounting kit is easy to use. I didn't use the speaker wire that was included because I had my wiring in place from the last configuration. The wire included is good quality too. The connections on the back of the speakers are user friendly because they screw out, but there is a hole to where you stick the wire THROUGH as opposed to having to wrap around the terminals & then screw in as I have had to do in the past. We all know what a pain it is to be on a stool trying to thread speaker wire on a speaker while supporting the speaker. This system is perfect for someone that wants a good home surround sound system that is definitely not entry level, & affordable with great sound quality. Not to mention the powerful 300 watt sub. And the speakers are nice to look at & they match most black LCD televisions & receivers. I would definitely recommend this system.

I'm curious to know if you might actually have a different system by JBL?

You said " I tell you what, the JBL's rock!! Literally... The 300 watt sub shakes the whole house." But the spec sheet says "With its 10-inch (250mm), 150-watt powered subwoofer, the CS6100 produces the realism you want in music and movies."

It's a big difference for someone researching!!!

Thanks :)
