SCS 145.5



All-in-one, six-piece optimized performance

The JBL® SSCS145.5 works together as a simple, all-in-one system that delivers JBL signature sound. The result? Better performance than any stand-alone components – by far. And you get more rich, real, true music and movie experiences.


Four two-way satellite speakers

The satellite speakers have titanium-laminate domes and are thin but rigid and deliver accurate high-frequency response even when the volume is way up. The high-frequency driver and the midrange driver are video-shielded, so put them wherever you like.


Voice-matched dual-driver center channel

The center channel is probably the hardest-working speaker in a home theater system. You get great power handling and efficiency, and clear dialogue from even the most dynamic movie soundtracks. Components are designed for optimal performance, voice-matched to the center.


100-watt powered subwoofer

A fast-moving, 8-inch (200mm) woofer and 100 watts of amplification produce clean, lifelike bass. A bass reflex enclosure spreads the response with a double peak, extending it further into the bass region. The effect? Your movies will shake you.

Does it requires an amplifier to work?  Is it included?

Asked by: Jtam
Yes, as the SCS145.5 is just a 5.1 home theater speaker system, and not a complete home theater system. You would need either an amp or a receiver for the speaker system to work.

Does this system require use of a receiver to work properly? If I do not have a receiver, does that mean I can't really use it?

Asked by: Alex
Yes, that is correct. You need a 5.1 surround sound audio/video receiver in order to use these speakers. This system includes 5 passive speakers and one powered subwoofer.
