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 centre-channel loudspeakers. The Studio 590 features a 1-inch (25-millimetre) 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-millimetre) PolyPlas™ cones with Symmetrical Field Geometry™ (SFG) magnet assemblies handle low frequencies.

Studio 590 is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from World-class loudspeakers Truly exceptional...there is an immediacy and impact--both sonic and emotional--with the 590's that is absent from all but perhaps the top 2% of most 'real world' speakers. Off-the-charts price-to-performance, legitimately world-class...well done, JBL.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These deliver Monstrous Sound. I need a bigger Room. These babies are big enough to fill the entire concert stage area in a nice barroom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Speakers! Set these bad boys up and was blown away by how great they sounded! Great JBL bass from the 8 inch drivers, sweet midrange/ high end horn. Bought these in December for Christmas. Delivered within a week. Super price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You really, really need these speakers. These are the best speakers I have ever owned. Absolute best value for hard earned money. I love them.

Are there any surround speakers that would match the studio 590s well. There are the 530s but they are simply too expensive (1k or more) to use just for surround so are there any alternatives? Thanks.

Asked by: Nick flicks
I would think, the reason for this page would be to hear some feedback from you JBL. So other people like my self can feel more reassurance about this purchase. 1000 per speaker may not be a big deal for you but a lot of you consumers have very little money to spend on thing like speaker. We all dream about having a great sound system and we all would love to one a pair of your speakers so PLEASE answer questions so we can show our wives that the money we are spending will be a great investment for our future.

Hello, which surround speakers are designed to match the Studio 580 and/or 590? I can find any offerings available which have the same tweeter design. Thanks!

Asked by: Z06Dude
The STUDIO 210 is the surround speaker that was designed for this series. If you do not mind having bigger speakers as your surround, mounted on your walls, the STUDIO 230 would also work as great surround speakers.

I love all JBL speakers but have a question. Studio 290's are 1/2 the price and use the same woofers as the 590's Unlike the 590's, the 290's also have a midrange driver. Here's the Question: "For home theater use, why is the 590 superior to 290?"

Asked by: HTFan
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. The Studio 590 will definitely deliver an extraordinarily lifelike performance.

Would these Studio 590 work well with the Studio LC2 center channel? i see the matching Studio 520c is no longer available. I’m was looking at getting the Studio L890, however, after reading several reviews on the 590’s, i’m thinking about getting these. 

Asked by: Jaymund
Hi, The Studio 590 should work well with the Studio LC2 center channel as long as you don't crank up the volume of the receiver. The Studio 590 can handle 250 watts at 6 ohms while the LC2 handles 150W at 8 ohms.

I was reading lots of comments above and how great the speaker is.  Can this speaker use for karaoke?  The family and friend really enjoy karaoke night.  Unfortunately, I had bad experience with JBL JRX100 that current sit inside my closet. 

Asked by: cuteo
Yes. Just cover with Saran wrap.

What would be a matching and most applicable sound-wise center speaker to the Studio 590?

Asked by: Nicki1
The 520C is the speaker specifically designed to be the center channel with the 590 towers.  However, I recently bought another 590 tower as my center!  I put it behind my TV, and even in that weird position I think it sounds better than a 520C in front of my TV (I know, because I used to own the 520C).  My plan is to one day get an acoustically transparent screen and use a projector.  When the sound doesn't have a TV interfering with it, the 590 center will perfectly match the 590 left/right speakers.

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.
