The JBL® Studio 190 floorstanding loudspeaker lets you experience deep, resounding low frequencies, a fully detailed midrange and complex high-frequency sound, whether you play it at low and subtle or high, maximum-SPL playback levels. The Studio 190’s sound waves feel tangible, as if you could pick individual notes out of the air. The secret to the Studio 190’s exceptional performance lies in its advanced materials, with PolyPlas™ cones for the pair of low-frequency woofers and the single midrange driver, and a CMMD® Lite dome for the high-frequency tweeter. The result is reduced distortion and the virtual elimination of unwanted resonance, while precise cone movement maximizes the sound clarity, especially on voices. And the Studio 190 features a cabinet design that looks as alluring as it sounds. Featuring a signature JBL Weave design, the Studio 190 can stand out or blend in. It’s your choice.

JBL engineers designed the Studio 190 floorstanding loudspeaker to deliver enhanced, room-filling sound from a compatible AVR (audio/video receiver) or 25- to 400-watt power amplifier, whether you are using the Studio 190 as a stand-alone unit or as part of a surround-sound system.

The Studio 190 delivers powerful, resounding bass from a pair of PolyPlas 6-1/2-inch (165-millimeter) woofers. The ribbed construction improves strength while reducing distortion, filling a room with deep, resonant bass. This lightweight alloy allows for precise movement, ensuring that bass instruments always sound powerful but never “boomy.”

Ideally, sounds should blend together within your ears, not interact with one another before they reach you. To prevent sound interference from the upper and lower frequencies, the JBL Studio 190 floorstanding loudspeaker’s 4-inch (100-millimeter) PolyPlas midrange driver features a separate sub-enclosure. And that’s not all – a lightweight alloy such as the PolyPlas material allows for precise cone movement to maximize sound clarity, especially on voices.

The CMMD high-frequency tweeter starts as an aluminum dome that is sandwiched on either side with ceramic. The result is strong enough to hold its shape when moving rapidly yet light enough to eliminate unwanted resonances. What your ears notice, however, is subtle, clear detail and lasting, unsullied sound performance.

The Studio 190’s Bi-Radial waveguide disperses high frequencies widely without loss of quality or accuracy. The result is precise, 360-degree imaging, sharp and rich high-definition (HD) sound and a wide listening position that makes every seat in the room the one to fight for.

Loudspeakers use magnets. Your TV hates magnets. But that doesn’t mean that you have to listen to movies on your television set’s often inadequate loudspeaker. Nor should you compromise your HDTV’s high-definition capabilities. JBL engineers have designed the Studio 190 floorstanding loudspeakers to form an integral part of any home theater experience. We’ve optimized the speakers for inspired performance while making them magnetically shielded to prevent any interference with video sources.

The JBL Weave design is a perfect convergence of form and function. Whether you need your JBL Studio 190 loudspeakers blend in or stand out, we’ve designed them to look sharp and stylish in any room.

Studio 190 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Sound I bought these 4 months ago to upgrade my front pair in a 5.1 surround HTS and I am most happy I did. The highs are brilliantly clear and the lows are tight and not muddled. I do have a subwoofer, but these speakers can stand on their own in most cases. What really came as a pleasant surprise is that these speakers sound great not only in home theater applications but in reproducing music as well. Great looks, solid build, excellent sound reproduction. I highly recommend these speakers to all.

Is it blutooth capable and does it have a fiber optic input?

Asked by: Roel
The STUDIO 190 is a passive speaker, meaning that it must be connected to a receiver/amplifier in order to function. It is not a powered speaker and cannot be connected directly to any source.
