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 4.8 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sounding, powerful speakers I am very pleased with the clean, powerful sound these speakers produce. Using the Studio 590 in a two channel setup works great without the need for a subwoofer (unless you gotta hear/feel the deepest pipe organ or synth notes). Even using a moderately powered 50 wpc NAD integrated, they produce excellent dynamics. The only issue I have is the grilles. If you want to listen with the grilles off, you have to replace the bottom quarter of the HF horn with the provided plastic piece. It was difficult to line up the piece in order to attach correctly. The top tab connects OK, but It felt like the attaching posts were going to bend - had to connect one side at at time, and wiggle it in place. I would say the designers chose form over function in this respect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding! The first pair of JBL speakers I bought where a pair of JBL L100T which I still own and use. The last pair of JBL speakers I bought was in the 90's, they are a pair SVA 1600's along with 4 SVA 1500's and the SVA center channel and JBL Sub. I also bought a pair of JBL SVA 1800's later on. They are awesome. These Studio 590's are one of the best, by JBL that I have heard in a long, long time. Very efficient , outstanding. They are paired up with my Harman Kardon Citation Series 21, 22 and 23.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These speakers bring the recording into the room I have the Studio 230 bookshelf speakers and love those, but I had my eye on a floor standing model. The only other floor standing model I can compare with are a set of Boston Acoustics--not sure of the model. The soundstage is mesmerizing. Currently, I am listening to Simon and Garfunkle The Concert in Central Park album and WOW. I feel as though I am there. Dave Brubeck Live in Carnegie Hall is another great album which the speakers can take you into the recording. These have a large footprint, but are impressive in performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noice Noice, for the price. I wanted a good Floorstanding speaker but most of the good one is just too expensive. I couldn't resist the sale on this speaker. They do sound phenomenal. The bass on this speaker is amazing, even without Subwoofer.

Would these be better than the JBL ND310 for a stereo setup?

Asked by: JBL for life
The JBL Studio 590 and ND310 are quite different in design, the 590 uses a compression driver while the 310 uses a dome tweeter. Technically, the Studio 590 is a bit more efficient at power handling and has a little deeper bass response. Otherwise it comes down to user preference (room size, speaker placement, type of music) for choosing which is the better option.

Do you need a subwoofer with these?

Asked by: JimS
The Studio 590 was designed to have a dual woofer with a frequency response of 35Hz-40kHz which means it will give you exceptional bass response when playing music thru it. If you want to enhance your listening experience then it would be best to add a sub woofer into the system to get more bass.

Recommendation for Avr/amp?

Asked by: snibbb
The STUDIO 590 can handle power up to 250W at 6-ohms. As long as your receiver is rated at 6-ohms and can drive power handling does not exceed 250W, it should work fine.

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.
