IMO, save your money and get the JBL 530's for $240 for the pair. Easier to resell down the line, and the 530's and 570's are basically the same speaker, especially when you add a sub to the mix.

If not buying subs.
I'd say this is decent advice if the speaker will be in a small room, or in a larger space but not played at really high levels with bass.
Otherwise the 570 has significantly more output capability and plays a bit better at high volumes. A better match for certain room sizes.
(That said the 530 is no slouch for a single 5" woofer in a much smaller cab.)
Also the 570 is more sensitive so again if playing back at higher SPL that may matter. I think the 570's can do louder volume very well with 40-100watt amps, the 530's I have used with a 150watt amp and that amp does occasionally just nip the clip indicator at really high volumes on peaks. I'd say to be safe buy at least a 100watt or more amp for farfield use.
Of course at lower volumes this doesn't matter at all, however I'd stay away from the 10watt chip amps, low powered tube junk and that kind of thing.

If buying subs.
If you can High Pass the 530's at 80-125hrz to dual subs then you have pretty sky high SPL limits, actually most budget subs will run out of gas before the 530's if HP'ed at 100-125. (that is my use case, 125hrz to dual woofers) They are very clean used this way to staggering SPL with a beefy amp.
Below 80hrz the 530 still sounds great it just can't do high volume with bass in medium or larger rooms without some mild compression and some congestion in the mids. At lower to medium high SPL the 530 has pretty good reach down into the 40's - better than most monitors with 5" drivers that I have heard.

I actually have not yet paired my 570's with subs so I don't yet know the results. I will again say they can handle pretty high SPL unfazed without subs. When run with a HP at 40hrz to limit excursion below the tuning, the speaker just play loud.

All this talk about SPL - regardless of SPL these speakers sound very good even for full retail. Truly. I'd have no problem paying full price after getting to know them. Expect to compare them with the best stuff under $1500 and be happy.(obviously there is a lot of potential personal preferences that may sway you around but make no mistake these are worth a shot)

I love my 530's.
I love the 570's as well.
Tuff call folks.
Both are fabulous bargains on sale.
By the way the Studio 6 series in coming to USA after a delay. That means these 5 series are likely to be gone reasonably soon. (by summer is my guess)I'd say grab em while they still have them.

These better than than the Klipsch RP250s?
I ran a head-to-head-to-head-to-head speaker comparison last year and in the competition was the JBL Studio 570 as well as the Klipsch RP-5000F (the newer version of the RP-250F, very close). While I did enjoy the JBL, I ended up choosing the Klipsch personally.

Sound-wise - which is subjective btw - I liked the sound from the Klipsch more. The bass was better and I enjoyed it more overall.
I have 3 little kids so kid-friendliness was also important. The Klipsch has a full-screen whereas the JBL could be subjected to 'pokes' in the tweeter, theoretically. The Klipsch (I later found) is much easier to tip over on it's side (as has been done 2-3 times now) but the JBL was extremely front heavy instead.

They're both compact floorstanders so they work wonders if you have a small space to work with. However, if you have the room for a larger speaker, I'd go bigger. While these speakers are great, woofer size makes a difference and I'd go with the RP-260F that is (was?) on sale for $250 instead if you've got the space and budget.

I really want these, but wife just won't go for them. I won the battle for the Monolith 12-in subwoofer, but the speakers are too ugly for her 🙄

My wife is pretty opinionated, and wasn't convinced of the look of the 530's at first, and didn't think JBL's were not all that great a speaker brand. Once I got them out of the box and hooked them up she changed her tune. Actually, they don't look half bad in person, and a bit bigger then you would think. At this price they sound really good, and my wife was impressed too. Just put her favorite music through and crank it up. I imagine your wife would warm up to them.

Same here. Wasn't excited about the appearance when I bought them but over time I have came to appreciate the look.
Got the 530's right up front beside the 590's. Papa bear and baby Bear I call them!

Are the 530's good to pair with my 520c center speaker to create this so-called wall of sound? I hear about this mythical experience but have yet to experience it.

You seem to know your stuff, but honestly don't understand half of what you said. Please pardon my ignorance.

If I can trouble you for your input, I'm considering the 570's or 530's for my front speakers, with a 520c already purchased and set up as my center speaker. I do not yet have a subwoofer and can be convinced to go either way on that.

I also already have four smaller speakers wired, installed, and positioned in the ceiling as potential surround sound — front right, front left, rear right, rear left. No idea in the brand as these all came with the home we bought, and I have all of this connected to a Denon receiver (the one from Costco that supports hdmi 2.1).

For reference, the TV (LG 77" C1) is on the wall, and the main speakers will be directly underneath it, roughly 9 feet away from our couch. We cannot move the seating area any farther back unfortunately. We watch movies, sports, play PS5 and XSX games on this, so it needs to be a Jack of All Trades in the kind of sound experience I'm going for.

What are your thoughts on which speakers to get — 530 or 570 — and if I should get a sub or not? I feel way more comfortable asking here on SD than doing a deep dive on an audio forum. Thanks in advance.

From what I remember, the Infinity is a better center, and other than brand matching/uniform look a lot mixed the JBL with that. Can't remember if was the RC252 or RC263. Believe the 263 ....just be aware it's huge as far as centers go

Been a bit since I read on this. They go on sale (or did) just as often as the JBL center since Harmon Audio has both brands and they're often not much more

Or could maybe just buy a second set of 530s and use the one as a center, but would believe leave upright

Say that as you probably are still in the return window for your center, if not just ignore

As far as subs I have one, ideally you want two...however all of it's connected as my desktop setup so it's an overkill already


Also with the 530s I mounted them with WALI Speaker mounts good up to 55 lb

Was afraid w how close to the wall would be issue with rear port on speaker but has been fine
