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 4.7 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound, great price!!! I am so happy I bought 4 of these when they were on sale for 50% off as they are the BEST speakers I have ever had!!! Top notch quality and such clarity, even when blasting super loud!!!

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.

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.
