Highlights

Unmatched cinematic sound from any angle Home theater should never be anything but riveting. That goes for everyone listening to a movie, TV show, or console game – even if they’re seated way off to one side. That’s why we developed the JBL® Studio 235C dual 2.5-way center channel loudspeaker. Part of the new 10-piece JBL Studio 2 loudspeaker series, the Studio 235C was built to bring depth and cinematic nuance to everything you hear on screen. Tested relentlessly in the world’s most advanced sound research lab – our own – and pitted against competitors in real world comparative listening studies, the Studio 235C wins the crown for accuracy – and then some. Its dual 6.5” PolyPlas midrange drivers accentuate the power of every word and whisper. Its rear-firing Slipstream bass port heightens your senses and deepens your appreciation with tight, accurate bass. And that’s all for starters. Taking cues from our work developing some of the world’s most legendary recording studios, we’ve given the Studio 235C the same kind of kinetic intensity you’d hear at the movies. A 1” CMMD® Lite high-frequency driver ensures low-distortion. Meanwhile, a High Definition Imaging (HDI) waveguide design offers pinpoint sound imaging and firm natural balance – whatever angle you’re listening at. To top it all off, we’ve decked out our loudspeaker with seductive 21st century features like gloss black paneling, soft rounded edges, and your choice of either Black or Espresso woodgrain finish. For those able to see and hear the truth, we’re confident you’ll know it – full volume – when you see and hear the Studio 235C.

From whatever angle you hear it, the Studio 235C shines as a dynamic, accurate center channel loudspeaker. Decades of JBL acoustic research and development have let us develop a loudspeaker with twin 6.5” PolyPlas drivers able to dish out double the power, nuance, and lifelike realism of JBL sound to any given area of a listening space

The apex of 67 years of pioneering sound research at our JBL labs, the Studio 235C incorporates groundbreaking innovations like a High Definition Imaging (HDI) waveguide design and a 1” CMMD Lite high-frequency driver into its framework. Together, these advances let you experience your sound purely and cinematically, with all the precision imaging, high-frequency detail, natural balance, and full spectrum mastery of advanced home theater

The house rule at JBL is to make it look as good as it sounds. And with the Studio 235C, we’ve made no exception. With 21st century elegance that incorporates soft-rounded edges, black gloss paneling, and soft-touch paint, we’ve built something that seduces the eye as much as it commands the ear

Studio 235C is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing center channel JBL has again amazed me with what they are capable off. This center channel is capable of picking up the slightest detail and delivering it to a wide sweet spot regardless of where you sit. Its pure and clear, just the way the sound engineer intended it to sound. I am an avid high end speaker collector and I have yet to find speakers that can rival the JBLs

Is the studio 235c a good match for the L5 towers?

Asked by: Rick235
While the 235C will work nicely with your L5, it will not be a good sonic match. If you are looking for the best sonic match, the STUDIO 520C is the way to go.

Is the Studio 235c a good match for JBL Studio 590 speakers? The Studio 5 series center channel is unavailable. Wondering how the dome tweeter of the 2 series center would work with the compression tweeters in the 5 series.

Asked by: Rick From IL
This is NOT a perfect match. The STUDIO 235C will work but will not have the same sonic timbre. If you wannt a perfect match, The STUDIO 520C is the way to go available at this link. http://www.jbl.com/loudspeakers/STUDIO+520C.html?dwvar_STUDIO%20520C_color=Black#q=studio%2B5&start=1
