They will work fine with your computer (even iMacs).

They have 3 disadvantages compared to the Audioengine 5+: No Remote control, no front volume control, and You will have to run more wires.
The AudioEngines take an unbalanced source, either RCA L/R or 3.5mm Stereo. Only one speaker has all the connections and you just run a speaker wire to the other.

The JBLs take balanced inputs...but all you need is 2 cables that have single RCAs at one end and a standard 2 conductor large phone plug (like the big headphone plugs but mono), run one to each speaker, and it will work fine. You also have to run a power cord to each speaker. Some computer room setups cannot do that. The volume controls on the JBLs are on the back....so you will control the volume with your computer...or get a dac.

Besides the price, the JBL have the advantage of being much better performing speakers. Instead of a single 50 way amp for each speaker...these have two 56 watt amps for each speaker...more power and bi-amped. They are much better speakers that regularly sell for $400 a pair. But you need to run a power cord and that big signal cord to each one. And they are bigger and black not cuter and woodish.

I do not think the SD community realizes what a good price $152.10 a pair for these speakers is yet.

Are these good for karaoke? I have this mixer https://www.amazon.com/Yamaha-MG06X-6-Input-Compact-Effects/dp/B00I2J4V5G/ref=mp_s_a_1_15?ie=UTF8&qid=1543122693&sr=8-15&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=audio+mixer

Do I need anything else to make this work?

This deal is absolutely insane.

I just ordered 2nd pair of 305p for ~$200 after tax from GC, but I needed white just for my room style (already have a pair of black ones which I love). Extremely tempted to upsize to 6" for $50 less, but can't find one damn review of these from a pro out there. I know frequently people prefer 5" to 6 or even 8" from some brands. 305 are extremely popular, 308 not at all. I wonder if somehow 5" are just higher quality/better balanced. 6" has miniscule advantage of like 2Hz on the deep end (47 vs 49 or something like that), not that I need that (I have Yamaha HS8 as my primary monitors).

This deal is driving me crazy...

In a small room I imagine this would be fine hooked up via xlr. You are going to want some PA speakers in the 10 or 12 inch range for anything larger. Might I suggest a Behringer xm8500 microphone on a budget.

For real these are pretty standard to have around a lot of studios as an A/B. You would have to spend a lot of money to come close to the quality of these from some high end home theater brand if you set them up in surround configuration. Of course there is the inconvenience of running power though but you don't need an amp at least.

So is this true? Is it really 2 (two) speakers for $150? There is an option for "$75 /each". What is that about? 300 for 2 pairs of speakers? Am I reading this correctly?

What's the difference between these and a PA speaker?

3 left. In for 2.

Good deal.

Any recommendation for a small mixer for this, would be run from a MacBook pro.
