How many JBL 170 speakers are needed for a home theate system
I am looking for a good stereo set up. Not very fond of subwoofers and surround sound systems. But I am very much a audiophile when it comes to the quality a speaker can deliver. Can the Arena 170 used on stereo amp deliver a well balanced experience?
Besides the price difference why should I buy the Arena 170 and not the Arena 180?
IS IT CORRECT TO DRIVE THIS LOUDSPEAKER WITH A FINAL AMPLIFIER CROWN XLI 800 ? THE POWER IT'S OK? THANKS ERMANNO
I'm not sure if seeing no reviews of this product is a good or a bad thing. Do these speakers do very well with music and or Hard Rock with just a 7" and no smaller mid that's good for voice. Do these speakers compare well with the es250p sub.
I am considering the Arena 170s for my home theater front channels and may upgrade my center and surrounds to match. My question is for the bang for buck, is the Arena series the best? Should I be considering a 200 series system?
