Hear each word from wherever you’re sitting

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.

Studio 235C is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from JBL - Studio 235C I bought my first Studio 235C late last year and liked what I heard. Nice low end and more importantly a nice smooth high end. I decided to change out the center on a second system in the house and found the 235c was not listed anymore. I tried a 225c and found it to be, not even close. It was returned. The 235c then became listed again on the Harmon site only. Got one and love it also. Sounds a little different, but still quite nice. My systems are all JBL with Control 1 Pro's and a 12 inch woofer. It kicks butt. The rooms are rather small so it all works great. If JBL/Harmon is phasing this model out, it would be a big mistake. The 235c is a very respectable product,

being as big as it is. its kinda hard to not have it placed all the way back to a wall. how far away from the ports should it be? larry

Asked by: mafosa
From the wall, You can give it a 4-5" space for the wires to go through. this should be enough space for your hands if there's some fine adjustments needed with the wires.

Is the JBL Studio 235C a good match with the in ceiling JBL Sp8cii speakers? Thanks

Asked by: SpeakerHead
Yes, you can pair the STUDIO 235C with JBL SP8CII speakers. When matching speakers with center channel speakers, we consider several factors such as the tweeter material (e.g. Titanium, CMMD, etc.), series and brand, respectively. Although the 235C tweeter uses CMMD, while the SP8CII uses titanium-laminate. Both speakers are the same brand and have a 1" dome shaped tweeter, they will be match fine.

Can this center channel speaker be used on its side?

Asked by: Watevr
Since the STUDIO 235C is on a MTM (mid-tweeter-mid) set-up, you can try to place it vertically or on its side, but please know that this speaker is designed to be installed horizontally, intended to be provide the best sound quality on such.

Is the Studio 235C a good match to be paired with the Studio 2 8IW speakers for Media room/theater room set up?

Asked by: Frankie1
STUDIO 235 and STUDIO 2 8IW are both part of the JBL Studio 2 series loudspeakers. Considering both speakers have similar tweeter design and are part of the same series, they will be a good match

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.

Regarding the port in the back for the driver. Will it have enough room to "breath" with an inch from a wall or can I just put a foam plug in? Thanks

Asked by: Thehhhh
You must have at least 2 - 3 inches of space between the rear of the unit and any shelf or component above the unit. The unit should not be inside a sealed compartment when being used. The unit must be able to breath so there would be no problems in the long run.
