Features

Proprietary JBL® dual 6" PolyPlas™ low-frequency transducers

Stiff, lightweight PolyPlas™ reproduces vocals with incredible accuracy and gives great bass response. A seamless surround field is created. Distortion is minimized even at high volumes with a rubber surround for the driver. Together, they give you an unmatched audio experience.

4" PolyPlas™ midrange driver

A great midrange driver is the heart and soul of great sound – and where departures from faithful sound reproduction are most noticeable to the human ear. The JBL® ES80 midrange driver also uses PolyPlas™ technology. What you hear is true.

Elliptical Oblate Spheroidal™ (EOS) Waveguide

Proprietary EOS Waveguide technology realizes the sonic response of your listening environment and delivers more precise imaging. You get ideally balanced music. Crisp dialogue. Smooth audio distribution. Every seat is the best seat in your home theater.

Dual ¾" dome tweeters, pure titanium design

The extremely thin but rigid titanium-laminate dome delivers accurate, undistorted high- frequency response, even when the volume is way up. The end result is a full, clear, tight reproduction of high frequencies.

4-way speaker configuration

Four-way speaker design and quality cones make for tighter, more precise bass and midrange reproduction. The JBL® ES80 offers a full range of frequencies and lifelike imaging.

Straight-Line Signal Path™ (SSP)

The ideal path from input to components to transducers is a straight line. The JBL® ES80 takes the shortest path possible. SSP technology preserves the clarity, detail and dynamics of the original audio content.

Computer-optimized bass reflex port

The JBL® computer-optimized bass reflex port extends deep bass response and eliminates unwanted turbulence.

Outstanding audio output

This small but muscular speaker offers 100 watts RMS and 400 watts of peak power, 3,600Hz crossover frequency at 24dB/octave, and 90dB sensitivity. Have fun.

Accurate frequency response

Nothing is over- or under-emphasized. With a frequency response of 45Hz ? 40kHz, the JBL® ES80 reproduces a true, full sound range ? from deep bass tones to ultra-high frequencies.

Bi-wiring capabilities

The internal dividing network enables bi-wiring capabilities that offer you more flexibility in amplifier selection ? and serious sonic advantages in the audio response.

Magnetically shielded

The JBL® ES80 produces great, sit-anywhere sound in your room. And you can also put it anywhere, because it’s magnetically shielded for safe placement near your TV or display.

ES80 is rated 4.88 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Typically Great JBL Product! I bought these ES80 speakers a week ago and what a bargain they were. It is hard to believe I got speakers of this caliber for less than $200 each with free shipping. I will not purchase any loudspeaker other than a JBL as they are far and away the best made. The ES80 platform looks sleek and produces crisp highs, solid midrange response and deep, accurate bass. I am pushing them with a receiver that produces 70 watts RMS and these speakers will blow you right out of the house. I highly recommend these units for anyone that is looking for a quality speaker at a bargain basement price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound Able to customize the frequency response of these four way speakers with my Yamaha RX-A1030 parametric EQ settings in the setup menu. The sound is outstanding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE ES 80! I bought the first pair almost a year ago. Shortly after I bought another pair. Last month I bough the 3rd pair. I have them powered by a orginal Yamaha MX 1000 amp that I had refurbished & upgraded. These speakers are an absolute jam! Especially for the price. I always have been a fan of JBL and have never purchased another brand. I used to own the old JBL 100T back in the day. But 2 6" woofers have amazed me with these speakers! Thanks again JBL! And to anyone wanting good speaks at a killer price? Your question has been answerd! My house is a concert hall of jams!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plenty of Sound! Have had now for a couple of months and so far ALL GOOD! I got these for a medium sized living room (15x15). I had JBL studio S series towers for over a decade in the room before but purchased the ES-10 surrounds for my 7.1 set up and fell in love with the balance they achieved in the sound field next to and behind the listening area.(As compared to my previous BOSE surrounds) Next I just wanted to balance out the front sound field with the surround stage. So out with the Studio S series towers and center and in with these ES80's and ES center. Now I the entire room is alive with beautiful balanced crisp sound. I also have the ES 250 12" sub all connected to a Pioneer Elite VSX-TXH03 receiver. I was afraid I would miss my studio S towers but the ES80's pack a good punch and deliver solid mids and clear crisp highs (and are 4-way vs my old were 3-way). In the end I don't miss my old Studio S's and sold them to my brother-in-law to recoup the money I spent on these (JBL.com had on sale $144 July 4th) and won't look back. Love em'
