Perfect example of ignorance is bliss. Feel free to enjoy your "compact wireless speaker that sounds fantastic". Just don't come on here and proclaim they are better than floorstanding speakers in the same product line without any facts because they have "many many more features".

I'm pretty sure if one of the leading authorities on sound reproduction research (Dr. Floyd Toole) decided to go through the expense and effort of hanging 150lbs., full sized speakers on his wall they probably do actually sound better than their bookshelf counterparts. And yes, he does integrate them with subs so they are not running full range even though they are one of the true full range floorstanding speakers that don't cost more than a house. Like I said, the only benefit to bookshelf speakers is if you need to actually put them on a bookshelf or wall.
I owned the Polk RTi150s as well as the bookshelfs/dipole set as well as the center that was just leagues ahead of its time...

That said I don't think those JBLs would be "better."

I don't own the 580s...I do have the 590s...and while those produce a nice wall of sound that the Polks couldn't..they would do so at the loss of that silky smooth detail from the Polk's tweeter.

I'm really interested in this as well.. I'm running a mixed system right now.. I hope some of you seriously die hard home theater people can chime in... Running:

Polk RTi150 towers
LSiM706c
FXi5 bipole surround
Polk Atmos in ceiling x 4
JBL 530 for front height
Infinity rs152 rear surround.
Monolith 15 subwoofer

My question is... Are these JBL 580s going to be a substantial upgrade to my Polk RTi150 from 10 years ago?

or would I benefit most from upgrading to Klipsch RP series (5.1) that are on sale at Adorama?

Any other suggestions would be welcome.

You already have the studio 530's...that should give you a general idea of how these are going to sound...except these will be biggah

These seem to be the one case of 'meh' in the lineup as the woofer size can't keep up with the bigger compression tweeter that's shared with the 590. BUT....

It's the perfect option for a center channel to park between two 590s!

Thank you for your reply. Now I'm wondering maybe I should get these 580s as front wides

It depends what you think of the 150's?

What "substantial upgrade" are you looking for over the Polk's?

Is there an issue with your frankie 9.1.4 setup that needs a "substantial upgrade"?

As someone pointed out since you have the 530's. You can use them as your fronts to get an idea of what these would sound like to you.

Could you clarify? I'm pretty sure the 580 is actually the ideal speaker in the Studio 5 series. 6.5" is supposedly just around the ideal mid range driver when paired with a subwoofer especially considering the Studio 5s are a 2.5 way design. If you're going for a pure 2 channel, yeah I think the 590s are better. I can't cite exactly where I remember reading this from but I'm pretty sure Greg Timbers who designed the 5 series and some of JBL's other speakers said the 580 was his favorite speaker of the line!

I second this. The most amazing aspect of any of the 5 series (I use 530s as nearfield desktop speakers and 590s as home theater LRs) is their ability to image like no other speaker I've heard. I haven't heard anything decently expensive (I.e. over 3000 USD for a pair) but I can't imagine anything in this price class beating out the 5 series' ability to set a magical soundstage.
