Clear the floor andlet the sound through You knew it was coming. You can’t expect JBL engineers to rest when it comes to redefining home theater sound. Introducing our new JBL® Studio 290 dual 3-way floorstanding loudspeaker – a towering piece of sound-craft that goes far and beyond what otherscould only imagine. A signature part of our new 10-piece JBL Studio 2 loudspeaker series, the Studio 290 has been tested relentlessly in the world’s most advanced sound research lab – our own – as well as pitted against competitors in real world comparative listening studies. The results are in: the Studio 290 takes the crown for legacy and technology. Its dual 8” PolyPlas drivers deliver twice the potency and precision of signature JBL sound. A rear-firing Slipstream bass port envelops your senses in tight, accurate bass. But these are just for starters: we’re aiming for the record books. Taking cues from our own work in developing some of the world’s most legendary recording studios, we’ve given the Studio 290 the kind of home audio experience that’s normally reserved for premium movie theaters. We’ve added improvements like a 1” CMMD® Lite high-frequency driver to ensure low-distortion, and a High Definition Imaging (HDI) waveguide design that offers pinpoint sound imaging and firm natural balance. We’ve shored up the Studio 290’s interior with edge-to-edge bracing so that there’s minimal cabinet flexing and bass distortion. Finally, we’ve introduced 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 290.

The results are in from lab and listeners alike: decades of JBL acoustic research and development have made their pronounced impact. With its twin 8” PolyPlas drivers delivering twice the unrivaled accuracy and realism of JBL sound, we’ll let a masterpiece – and the truth – speak for themselves.
The apex of 67 years of pioneering sound research at our JBL labs, the Studio 290 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 imaging, high-frequency detail, natural balance, and full spectrum sound of advanced home theater.
The JBL way is to make it look as good as it sounds. And with the Studio 290, 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.

Hi. I have HK3770 and want to buy JBL Studio 290. Would IT have enough power to to play clear and loud. Thank you
Is the Studio 290 a better alternative than a Studio L880? Which Harman Kardon AVR is recommended for two Studio 290? Thanks for your answers
Hi JBL friends! I wanted to now the main difference between the 290 studio speakers and the JBL L890 4-Way Dual 8" Floorstanding Loudspeaker - Each Model: L890BLK UPC: 050036909655 , I have the 890 and want to get another pair, which would be better?
can you tell me the actual dimensions of these cabinets? thank you!
freq range is 38hz-22khz is this +-3db or more ? sensitivity is 91 db is it 2,83v/1m or 1w/1m and is it free space or half space ? I definitely need accurate values to check that they are capable of 40hz @ 110db @ 1m with how much required power ?
I have a Marantz NR1605 receiver that has a power output of 50W (0.08% @ 8 Ohm), 70W (0.7% @ 6 Ohm) per channel. Would this be enough for the Studio 290 as front speakers? Thank you.
The specs mention Bi-Wire Capabilities. Can the speakers be setup in a Bi-Amp configuration? I have read about Bi-Wiring and it looks does not really make any audible difference, nor any additional control apart from maybe varying the ohms to the amp....
In a 5.1 setup, I have the Studio 290's for my fronts, the 235C for center and the 230' for the rears. I have been having a hard time deciding where to set the individual crossovers for all them. I know rooms vary, but, any recommendation? Thanks
