The JBL® SSCS145.5 works together as a simple, all-in-one system that delivers JBL signature sound. The result? Better performance than any stand-alone components – by far. And you get more rich, real, true music and movie experiences.

The satellite speakers have titanium-laminate domes and are thin but rigid and deliver accurate high-frequency response even when the volume is way up. The high-frequency driver and the midrange driver are video-shielded, so put them wherever you like.

The center channel is probably the hardest-working speaker in a home theater system. You get great power handling and efficiency, and clear dialogue from even the most dynamic movie soundtracks. Components are designed for optimal performance, voice-matched to the center.

A fast-moving, 8-inch (200mm) woofer and 100 watts of amplification produce clean, lifelike bass. A bass reflex enclosure spreads the response with a double peak, extending it further into the bass region. The effect? Your movies will shake you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Last one! I had this speaker set about 9 years ago love them but over time started to crack. I like them so much I wanted to get another set and to my surprise an upgraded version was still for sale. When I ordered them it came back as back ordered I called a couple of times and was told to hold off a bit. Which I did and they arrived with free shipping they sound awesome THANKS JBL!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific sound I,am an old Sony guy, bought these speakers to replace my aging Sony Theater Surround. They are amazing , pick up highs and lows, about anything the amp can send out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from JBL Topnotch!!! Unconciously, JBL had resgisterd in my mind as a tops speaker manufacturer. I went past a vintage SCS 75 passive subwoofer, and bought it. Clean, clear rounded unsurpasseda, so comfortable bass is what I GOT! I've in Ghana and can't lay hands on these or might not afford it, but I'm making great do with the SCS 75 sub for the time being. Keep going, JBL - don't spoil it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best first product on the market for the value I’ve used JBL speakers (book shelve set) since I was an undergrad. We now have them in our car and for Christmas I received this set. We “had” to buy a new receiver (Sony) which works well with the speakers. I was very impressed that everything needed to use this product was included in the box. No secondary trips to the store to buy wires, mounts or sundry other items. Easy set-up, great sound and a company that I believe it behind the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ALL GOOD THINGS LAST !! I baught my set about 14 years ago and they've put up with a lot . Thats why I gave them 5 stars and the only down side is the powered sub at the time didn't have a gain control like it does now . Great beginner set .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing I bought theses speakers 10 years ago and they still sound amazing! We pump the sound at our house all the time. plus, we've moved several times and they have survived the move every time. the sub has started making a little noise but other than that, 100%. i will buy another set of these when mine go out. highly recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little sub/ sat system Purchased these way back in 2004, SCS 136 (exact specs as the 145.5) only different they came with mesh speaker covers instead of metal. I have them connected to my Onkyo TX-NR509 receiver with banana plugs. I'm surprised that the satellites are two-way designs, with a 0.5-inch titanium dome tweeter and a 3-inch woofer. Overall I'm very impressed with these tiny sat speakers. They have the fullness of much larger speakers. The center channel with two 3" drivers makes dialogue pop and sound very clear. The subs down-firing 8-inch woofer also supplies plenty of bass needed during my blu-ray movie watching. My only complaint is the sats have no keyhole slots. I'm forced to use outdoor double sided tape on the base of the sats and press them firmly on my Sanus hover speaker stands. I did replace the enclosed speaker wire with Monster 16 ga wire and ended up using the wall mounts that were supplied with the sats.

Does it requires an amplifier to work?  Is it included?

Asked by: Jtam
Yes, as the SCS145.5 is just a 5.1 home theater speaker system, and not a complete home theater system. You would need either an amp or a receiver for the speaker system to work.

Really enjoyed my previous generation 135S system with 5.1 sound and four satellite speakers. However with the weight of the satellites on the wall mounts, the plastic bracket under the satellites have broken on two of the speakers. Can I get spare parts?
