Are you saying 3>2 and therefore 3 is better than 2? If so, that's really stupid.

Are these the type that get the parties going or which ones?

How are the 530s for near field listening? Would it be better to wait for the JBL studio monitors to go on sale again?

Why don't the stage series ever get the same attention as infinity and studio? Just ordered the a190's. Sending the infinity 253s back. Sound great but to unstable footing for my circumstances.

Quote from wherestheanykey :
These are fine for small rooms and discrete surround sound systems.

You aren't going to DJ huge parties with these. Look for speakers with 8ohm impedance or better if you're just looking for loudness.
Wait what? I've been doing the audios all wrong? Can you please explain this impedance loudness phenomenon.

🤨🤔

Edit: also the JBL are 6 ohm so are you saying they need to be GREATER than 8 ohm for these bangers people want to throw?

I like my 530's. Be warned though, they are pretty big for "bookshelf" speakers and need to be at least one foot off the wall to sound their best (like most speakers). The 520c center channel, though is a bit is a bit disappointing to me at least. Doesn't have enough bass for voices in my opinion, but it does match the tone of the 530's well. If you can do three 530's across the front it would be best.

Why would a Studio series center be two-way? Thought that branding was reserved for the higher end.

The center is a two way. Horn is in the middle for highs and high-mids. There are 4inch speakers on either side to handle lows to mid-lows

You thought of trying the Jbl Rc263?

Sorry but you appear to not know the difference between a 2-way and 3-way center. My Northridge EC35 from 2004 is better than this "Studio" center. Studio used to mean something.

I'm a little unsure about that comment as well. Impedance is really more about the power demands a speaker may place on an amplifier (where lower impedance can demand more power). The impedance rating is really an average across frequencies and generally the difference between 6 and 8 ohms isn't really a concern. Perhaps the comment about wanting higher impedance for playing "loud" is to avoid asking too much of an amplifier that can't handle the wattage that a lower impedance speaker may ask of an amplifier? I think the fix for that is a better amp with more power.

Given two speakers, the sensitivity rating is what you would compare to determine potential "loudness" (decibels generated with 1 watt at 1 meter). So given the same amplifier, the speakers with the greater sensitivity can play louder.

To answer if these are "good" enough for a party, I think that's relative to what you have now. If you are currently using a little bluetooth speaker, these should easily destroy that with the right amplification. But, a 5 1/4" driver can only move so much air and a small cabinet can only make so much bass. You will find their limits pretty quickly in a large enough space. Crossing them over to a subwoofer would absolutely help, but these wouldn't be my first choice for blasting bass heavy music in a large room.
