Professional-level technology in a floorstanding loudspeaker.

The JBL® Studio 590 floorstanding loudspeaker brings professional-quality sound to the home experience. The Studio 590 uses the technology that JBL engineers developed for pro-audio loudspeakers to deliver accurate, powerful sound to your living room. The Studio 590 floorstanding speaker is a perfect complement to other members of the Studio 5 Series, including the Studio 530 bookshelf and the Studio 520C center-channel loudspeakers. The Studio 590 features a 1-inch (25-millimeter) tweeter mounted on a glass-filled Bi-Radial® horn – the same technology used in JBL concert sound systems – to deliver concise, sustained high frequencies. A pair of 8-inch (200-millimeter) PolyPlas™ cones with Symmetrical Field Geometry™ (SFG) magnet assemblies handle low frequencies.

Studio 590 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speakers Incredible speakers. Would be nice if the woofers were a little bigger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best speaker I ever Owned. Unbelievable sound For about 7-8 years, I had the famous JBL studio L speakers (7.3 Floor Standing system). I was always listening and comparing other speakers and couldn't find anything better , for the last couple of years I was reading about studio 5 series, and I finally decided to order a pair of studio 530's, I was shocked at how much better, cleaner, and more open they sounded, more open than my L890's, After a few days of listening to music and watching movies I ordered the center speaker and finally ordered pair of these monsters along with a pair of 560p subs. I have had them for about a week now and cannot get enough of listening to them. These speakers are the best I ever heard...Ever! The bass is so tight , clean and deep. Highs are just unbelievable clean, open and smooth. I listen music and watch HD quality movies a lot and I cannot believe how much I was missing before. If you can afford it, just get them. I think this is the best investment you can make and you will be extremely happy with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from That JBL sound! Let me start by saying that I purchased a pair of JBL studio monitors back in the early eighties and used them as my "reference speakers" for over thirty years. I finally retired them last year - still in perfect working order. The next thing I would like to disclose, is that I am a speaker junkie. I love music. I love the sound of music. I have been on a quest for the perfect speaker all of my life, and have owned virtually every speaker you could think of. I have missed my JBL's ever since I sold them. No matter what other speaker phase that I have gone through over the years (and there have been many), I always came back to the JBL's. No other speaker that I have found could do everything so "right". I am pleased to say that the same is true for the new JBL Studio 590's. Now, let me warn you, these things are BIG. No matter what you expect, they are bigger than that! But the payoff is massive sound, or "solid walls of sound" as Elton John put it so many years ago. Yet with their huge walls of sound, they can be delicate and light as a feather when the music passage calls for it. And the best thing to me is that they have that "JBL sound" that I have been missing. It's hard to put into words, but kind of a natural and organic sound and feel. I have owned other brands that were technically more precise, but that, in the end, was the problem - they sounded "technical". These JBL's sound "musical". These speakers are enjoyable to listen to for hours on end. They are a very rich sounding speaker. My only caution would be the size, and that you had better have a pretty robust amp for them (like all JBL's). I am using a Peachtree pushing about 250 watts to them and that seems about right, but I think that 300 - 500 watts might be even better. My advice would be to buy a pair, get your favorite music, and settle in... for the rest of your life!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Total Musical Enjoyment Purchased Studio 590s and their matching speakers for a 7:1 (SVS Ultra 13 sub)totally immersive sound system. After auditioning B&W, Paradigm, Golden Ear and others I settled on JBL for the realism in music I demand. The detail and sound stage are awesome. I hear cymbals that are true to sound and you can hear the diminishing sound after the strike. This is a well balanced system with plenty of punch and realistic sound. Excellent for home theater and pure enjoyment for listening to all music genres.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best home JBL speaker available This is plain and simple the best JBL speaker out there - available for the home. You can see how their pro knowledge has seeped into their home line. I will probably also augment these with a pair of JBL STX 828 speakers for more low end, but, if, in the future, JBL added two 15 inch speakers to the L590 cabinet, it would have the best home speaker in the entire space time continuum.

Do the 590s come with speaker cable/wires in the box? Or do we need to get wires separately

Asked by: PRAMAN
The STUDIO 590 package does not come with speaker wires. Reason being, many people have their own preferences as to what type of speaker wire they’d like to use, and there are too many variables in each individual system configuration. It is always best to purchase the cable of your choice.

What are the differences between the 590 and the 290 ? they appear to be very similar

Asked by: Larr
The Studio 590 and 290 do have the same appearance. However, the main difference is the number and type of speakers inside. The 290 has two(2) 8" woofers, one(1) 4" mid-range and a 1" tweeter while the 590 has higher quality 8" woofers and a 1" horn loaded tweeter allowing it to accept up to 250W, a higher rating than the 290.
