A high-performance loudspeaker at a cost that isn’t earsplitting

There are things in life that remain both powerful and affordable. Case in point: the JBL Arena 130 bookshelf loudspeakers. Who but JBL engineers could devise a loudspeaker where high-performance sound, high-definition imaging, and high-modernist elegance go hand-in-hand at a low price? The Arena 130’s 7” (178mm) polycellulose woofer and 1” (25mm) soft dome tweeter combine to deliver standard-setting performance that’s both ultra-powerful and ultra-lifelike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Serious quality sound I bought a pair of these speakers a few months ago, to upgrade my rear speakers in my surround sound set-up. The quality and finish is to a high standard, and they look great in white. The sound from these speakers is powerful and direct and has greatly improved the surround sound experience. I highly recommend these speakers, especially at this price point.

I have a yamaha r-s202 reciever with 100w per channel..this speaker will be work fine if I connect this? thank you

Asked by: cherryjohn
It would work perfectly fine. The Yamaha R-S202 drives 100W at 8 ohms while the Arena 130 can handle 125W at 8 ohms so It would not have any problems at all.

Hi, my amp has an output of 100 x 2 rms at 8ohm, they manage to maintain such power? thanks.

Asked by: frankit
The ARENA 130 can handle up to 125 watts. This means that any receiver with a power output of 125 watts per channel or less will work fine with this speaker.

I recently purchased the Arena 130 speakers and I noticed that the required minimum maximum wattage is 20 to 125 watts. I'm trying to match a stereo receiver with those specs, however, I need to know if the wattage is per channel or total. I'm looking

Asked by: Sir JamALot
When trying to match a receiver to the ARENA 130 speakers, it is the 125W RMS rating that you should be basing it on. Generally, any receiver that outputs anything near that wattage would be perfect, preferably a little lower to avoid overpowering the speakers.

Hello, can i use them alone without a 5.1 system? Just one left and one right?

Asked by: menhus
All you need is a stereo audio receiver, and you'll be good to go. Something like the Harman Kardon HK3700 or HK3770 would work great with these speakers.

From what I can understand, these speakers can handle frequencies from 55Hz and up. I have a Yamaha RX-V581 amp and I have a subwoofer. Am I correct in deducting that setting the crossover in my amp to ~60Hz would be the right idea?

Yes.

how could i mount these near the ceiling? 

Asked by: rando
The ARENA 130 speakers cannot be mounted on a wall. These speakers have a rear firing port. You cannot block this port by mounting the speaker against a wall. This will drastically reduce the sonic quality. These speakers are meant to be placed on a bookshelf, at least 2" away from the wall.
