25 – 250 watts suggested amplifier power range
JBL engineers designed the Studio 590 floorstanding loudspeaker to deliver enhanced, room-filling sound from a compatible AVR (audio/video receiver) or 25- to 250-watt power amplifier, whether you are using the Studio 590 as a stand-alone unit or as part of a surround-sound system.
Dual 8" (200mm) ribbed PolyPlas woofer cones
Powerful bass affects more than just your ears. It resonates through your entire body, creating a soundscape that you can feel as well as hear. The JBL Studio 590 floorstanding loudspeaker delivers accurate low-frequency sounds from a pair of 8-inch (200-millimetre) ribbed PolyPlas woofers. The ribs improve strength while reducing distortion. The result is rich, powerful, articulate bass.
Symmetrical Field Geometry (SFG) magnet assembly
Thanks to a heavy-duty Symmetrical Field Geometry (SFG) magnet assembly, the Studio 590 floorstanding loudspeaker’s pair of low-frequency woofers delivers highly focused bass. The result is pristine, articulate sound.
1" (25mm) high-frequency compression driver
The JBL Studio 590 floorstanding loudspeaker’s high-frequency compression driver lowers distortion and provides a wider dynamic range than is possible from conventional high-frequency and midrange drivers. The tweeter comprises a one-piece Teonex® diaphragm/surround assembly fitted with a 1-inch (25-millimetre) voice coil that can deliver enhanced vocal articulation.
Glass-filled ABS Bi-Radial high-frequency horn
Horn-shaped loudspeaker designs optimize high-frequency output by directing the sound to the listener with pinpoint accuracy, thereby eliminating reverberation, reflections off walls, and other artefacts. The Studio 590 floorstanding loudspeaker features a glass-filled ABS Bi-Radial high-frequency horn that delivers professional-level sound to your home.
Low-loss, 2-1/2-way crossover network
The Studio 590 floorstanding loudspeaker’s low-loss, 2-1/2-way crossover network ensures a clean transition for sound coming from individual low-frequency and high-frequency drivers, thereby reducing distortion while improving clarity.
The Studio 590 floorstanding loudspeaker will work with multiple power amplifiers or connection setups – or both – for single-wire or bi-wire operation. The result is enhanced versatility in the ways you can use the Studio 590 speaker.
Sturdy 3/4" (19mm) MDF enclosure
The Studio 590 floorstanding loudspeaker’s cabinet is built with the same attention to perfection as every other component. Rigid, heavily braced materials prevent unwanted resonances, while non-parallel surfaces eliminate sound interference.
The same attention to detail that went into the Studio 590 floorstanding loudspeaker’s technical design was paid to creating a powerful, sophisticated look that will fit within even the most discerning householder’s décor. The Studio 590 is available in a black or cherry finish.

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.
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!
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?"
Please can you use the studio 590 for an outdoor?
What would be a matching and most applicable sound-wise center speaker to the Studio 590?
How are they for 2 channel stereo?
Can we get a Spinorama chart for the Studio 590 please?
The floor standing speaker design does not fit in my Media room configuration. Is there a chance that these speakers could be used by laying them horizontally, instead of vertically standing? Thanks!
