Key Features

Elegant Finish and Design

From the sculpted design of each satellite to the beautiful, high-gloss black finish the CS6100 system looks as good as it sounds.Its beauty extends to the powered subwoofer whose slim footprint and piano black finish discreetly blends into nearly any room with style.

High-Performance, 3/4" Titanium Tweeters

The extremely thin but rigid titanium dome delivers accurate, undistorted high- frequency response, even when the volume is way up. The end result is a full, clear, tight reproduction of high frequencies.

Ultra-rigid, 3-1/2" PolyPlas Drivers

Your music and movies have rich, smooth, detailed sound. When it comes reproducing every last detail, the CS6100 satellite speakers step up, using dual 3-1/2-inch midrange drivers reinforced with stiff, lightweight PolyPlas™ to make all your favorite sonds and movies sound clear and natural.


The elegant 10' powered subwoofer delivers powerful, low-end bass

10", 150-Watt Powered Subwoofer

No movie experience is complete without being to hear and feel every exciting moment. With its 10-inch (250mm), 150-watt powered subwoofer, the CS6100 produces the realism you want in music and movies. Proprietary JBL® technologies – PolyPlas™-cone woofers, a FreeFlow™ flared port – deliver the goods. Deep, resonant bass with no distortion. It looks great with flat-screen and plasma televisions. And gives you the feel-it-true cinema sound HDTVs deserve.

High Quality Speaker Connections

Unlike many comparable speaker systems which use lower quality spring type speaker connectors, the CS6100 uses high quality binding posts. This allows for the best possible signal transfer and lets you hear every last detail from your favorite song, movie or TV show.

Included Wall Brackets

The CS6100 system includes wall brackets for complete flexibility in where you want your system looking and sounding its best. The wall brackets swivel providing an unlimited number of positions to lock the satellite in for precise imaging.

Style Name: Speakers Verified Purchase
So, I set up the speakers and everything, and for the first week everything worked fine.

Then the subwoofer broke, refusing to power on. Called up JBL customer service, which is an Indian call center, and asked for an address where I could get the subwoofer fixed under warranty. They gave me a company name and address. I looked them up afterwards, they're not there anymore or out of business.

I call customer service again. I get two more shops/addresses, which are both 45 minutes away from me. Both of them say they don't service JBL products anymore when I call them. I asked one of them "Why does nobody take JBL warranty work?"

"They don't pay us. They owe me a lot of money, but have never paid for my work, so I stopped". Furthermore, both of the shops said they had stopped doing JBL work for over a year. That's some up-to-date data JBL keeps.

JBL is too cheap to pay for repairs to their defective products, and as the customer, you will suffer when your product breaks under the warranty time. I called up JBL support again, saying "Look, there's no service centers within reasonable distance to me. Can I just take it to a shop and send you the bill for a refund?" The reply was no, and it was pointed out that since it was less than 30 days of purchase, I could send it back to Amazon for a replacement, which is what I wound up doing (Thanks, Amazon!). Before hanging up though, I asked "But what happens if the speakers break in the future? Can I get it repaired somewhere and get refunded the cost then?" The response was just "There will be a service center in your area in the future." Yeah, right.

Why do I have zero confidence that they will try and get a service center in the area?

Hi ravl13.

I want to thank you for your business and sincerely apologize for what seem's like was a very poor customer service experience for you. JBL does strive to provide excellent customer service and this should not be the norm. If you wouldn't mind reaching out to me I would like to get some further details from you on what transpired so we can work to correct an issue like this from happening again. My email is chris.angelillo@harman.com.

I do hope that you are enjoying the sound from the replacement unit you were sent from Amazon. The CS6100BG speaker system is a great sounding speaker system.

Thank you, again, for your business.

I purchased the JBL CS6100BG Home Theater Speaker System for my bedroom. Overall, I've been really impressed with the quality of sound. The subwoofer packs a powerful punch. Installing the wall brackets for the rear channel speakers was really simple. It took me about 15 minutes. This system comes with fixed and adjustable brackets for the rear channel speakers. I used the adjustable brackets. It also comes with a wall bracket for the center channel speaker. One thing the product description doesn't say is that this system does include speaker wire for all 5 speakers and a 15' subwoofer cable. The speaker wire is black #18 gauge with polarity coding. The only negative thing about this system, which really isn't that big of a deal, is that it doesn't include wood screws needed to mount the speaker brackets. I highly recommend this system for a bedroom or a small to medium sized living/family room. For a large room, I would go with bigger speakers.

A few weeks back, I decided it was time to replace my 12 year old Sony TV and 17 year old "stereo" system with its two cheap speakers.

End result, after lots of research, was the purchase of the following, all from Amazon.
- Samsung LN40A650 LCD TV
- Onkyo TX-SR606
- JBL CS6100 6-Piece Home Cinema Speaker Package
- Logitech Harmony 550 Universal Remote

Also connected are;
- Scientific Atlanta cable set top box from Time Warner
- Sony SLV-D300P DVD/VCR which is 2-3 years old
- Nintendo Game Cube

Installation was in a 20'x30' room.

My goals were to have a high quality TV with decent sound, and keep the entire cost under $2500 if at all possible. Goal achieved, even with the purchase of the incidentals; some speaker wire, banana clips for speaker cables, an optical digital audio, cable, etc.

- Speakers... even if you go to all of the places you can visit to hear speakers, you have no idea how they will actually sound in your own environment. And, speakers are an object thing. My concerns here were that the only review I could find on the audiophile web sites was for the smaller CS480 speakers. the CD480s have a single woofer and tweeter in satellites vs. the dual woofers in the CS6100 package. The reviews of the CD480s indicated that they were a bit bright, a bit lacking in mid-range under some conditions. I don't find that to be the case with the CS6100s, maybe because of the dual woofers. Having all the mounting hardware in the box is a real plus, and they give you two choices of mounts, fixed and swivel. Enough high quality speaker wire in the box for a medium sized room. Sub-woofer speaker cable included. A nice, classy look as well..

I bought this home cinema speaker system because I've been using JBL speakers since the 1970's when I owned the JBL L-100 Studio Monitor speakers. In those days JBL built their products here in CA and their products were famous for being durable and sounding great. Not any more!!! These 'satellite' speakers are built in CHINA and really show the quality difference. The center channel speaker was defective on delivery. Nothing but static came from it while all the others worked fine. I changed speakers around to make sure it wasn't the wiring, it wasn't. The JBL instructions recommended sending any bad components back to JBL, not to the retailer. This is where things went horribly wrong. I followed their instructions to the letter: I faxed the problem description to JBL customer service. They responded in a few days (should have been sooner) telling me to pack the bad speaker in the original packing and send it to Harman Inc. in Atlanta. This required me to break up the original packing for full system and use the styrofoam for the center unit. JBL said they'll email me when they receive the bad speaker. UPS sent me a delivery confirmation in 4 days. When I called JBL (Harman) in Atlanta on the 5th day, guess what? "Sorry sir we haven't received your speaker!" I said, "I have the delivery confirmation from UPS right here and it was received by Dewey (or someone like that) with his signature on your loading dock yesterday." The customer service person (In India) said he'll check and get back to me via email. 4 days later, still no response. I try the same thing again. Another agent in India says the same thing. He says he'll email me when they show the speaker "in their system". Another 5 days go by, no email.Read more ›
