The same reason samsung doesnt sell their crap for MSRP.
JBL is no longer associated with quality and great sound. they are just a consumer audio company putting out what the mass market and their mommy (samsung) tells them too.
They lost their cache years ago and sold out. too bad because at one time they were a well respected company making high quality audio components.
Oh noes didn't they have a L2/L3 cache left at least ? Did they die?

Noob here. How would one use these in a 5.1/7.1/9.2/etc. system, are they best for the fronts? I keep hearing "soundstage" mentioned. If I were to build a [5|7|9].[1|2], how would I employ these and what would make good matches for the rest of the system?

If I were to start building a 5.1, would these be my 2 fronts or could they work as backs too? Would still need a center correct?

These usually are used in the Fronts in a Left and Right position if these are the best speakers you can afford. If you are starting new, get the best center channel speaker you can afford followed by the Left and Right speakers. Make sure all these are timbre matching as in from the same line of speakers so sound reproduction is similar. Invest in a good sub woofer next. The surrounds do not need to be in the same caliber or the same brand/series as the ones in the front.

Very few electronics items sell at MSRP. MSRP is for suckers.

They might be ugly but the money is going towards a good design, build, and component quality well above this sale price. All things considered they are not THAT bad for a horn speaker. There's not much you can do to hide a true horn loaded compression driver and properly designed big boxes, which is most of the reason these guys are so good.

I agree with others that in today's market the chances of this Studio 5 type of speaker line being affordable is becoming less and less likely. If you want what this speaker line offers you should be buying at these prices. Harmon has gutted their loudspeaker design division and the future is good if you want bluetooth speakers and trendy little sat systems. Not so good if you want high quality speaker designs from them at reasonable prices.
I'm sorry, but this speaker is really hideous. Even if it sounds like a 1000 speaker I can't buy this thing.

I've just ordered the S590 last week. Should I cancel that order and get these instead?
I was also going back and forth between the 590s and 580s during the deal last week. I ended up going with the 590s because I plan to keep these for a long time (my last Northridge/Studio setup lasted almost fifteen years), and even though they might be a bit overkill for my current space, I could easily be back in a home with a large home theater room in the next decade, and I'd want the 590s then.

Based on a bunch of reading/reviews, if your usage will never have you needing the extra punch of the larger woofers in the 590s, save yourself the money and get the 580s.

I also got a 520C and a pair of the 530s last week, with the latter being too large/heavy for my current speaker stands. Big Grin New Sanus stands are coming in tomorrow and the 590s are coming Monday afternoon. Can't wait to tune the system.

Thanks for the info! Would a JBL center make a good choice to match to these? I am not familiar with any of it, but I've read thru what people are saying about these and I'm intrigued, but don't know what to match these with.

As far as best I can afford, technically I could afford a lot more, but not willing to spend much outside of this pricerange (this level of quality on sale around this price point), in other words I'm looking for a good bang for the buck in the upper amateur-level space. What are some subs to look at (ideally that go on sale once in a while)? Can I run a 3.1 system until I locate some rears (which also include running wires, which is a small complication at the moment as I haven't finalized where the entertainment center will be finally located in our house)?

Thanks again.

I have the old 70s vintage JBL L100 speakers and still sound pretty good. Surprisingly they go for $1000 on Ebay in descent condition. Should I sell those and buy these? Would I be amazed by the sound quality because the technology of speakers have gotten so much better? Thanks for all the good info on this forum.

That's interesting to see a few people say this. I have a few pairs and nobody who has seen them in my setup has said anything. I use them with the grills off, maybe they look better that way.

The full lineup sounds great though. I'm impressed with how they perform at their price point.

The matching center is the 520c I believe. It looks like one of these speakers laying on it's side. It goes on sale every now and then so setup an alert for it.

With front/center/left (and assuming you have a sub) you are essentially running a 5.1 system without the rears, so you wouldn't hear anything designated for those 2 channels but it will work just fine. I've got this setup in one of our bedrooms.

These will sound different than the speakers you have. If you like the sound of these better than what you have, then do it.

It's hard to give a yes or no because everyone experiences speakers a little differently and has a different opinion of what sounds good to them.
