I have a full jbl arena surround set up with the 170's in the front, 125c center, 130's in the rear, and 120's for height with an svs pb1000 sub. These speakers are excellent for home theater use. For $80/shipped these are a steal and you couldn't get anything better for the price.

Very good. The are clear and detailed without being harsh and overly bright like entry level Klipsch. Dialog is smooth and easy to make out.

What HiFi gave them a decent review at full retail price. Not a ton of bass but if you are using a sub you should be fine.https://www.whathifi.com/jbl/arena-170/review

Just read that before you posted. Kinda tempted by these due to such a low price for towers. Any audiophiles have some thoughts on these vs some of the recent tower deals lately? I assume the low end will be a bit weak based on professional reviews and user reviews but any thoughts on overall sound quality compared to some of the other lower end towers (Infinity, Klipsch, etc)? Thanks to anyone who replies.

Thanks for the comment. What would you think of them in a 2.1 or 3.1(center) setup?

Just got set of 4, black center is sold out. Will use existing Klipsch quintet V center until next sale for 125C center. Hoping for more sound than I currently get out of the Klipsch Quintet V set. Never going with the small speakers all the way around again.
