25 – 125 watts suggested amplifier power range
JBL engineers have designed the Studio 530 bookshelf loudspeaker to deliver robust sound from a compatible AVR (audio/video receiver) or 25- to 125-watt power amplifier, whether you are using it as a stand-alone unit or as part of a surround-sound system.
5-1/4" (130mm) ribbed PolyPlas woofer cone
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 530 bookshelf loudspeaker delivers accurate low-frequency sounds from a 4-inch (100-millimeter) ribbed PolyPlas woofer. The ribs improve strength, while reducing distortion. The result is rich, articulate bass.
Symmetrical Field Geometry (SFG) magnet assembly
Thanks to a heavy-duty Symmetrical Field Geometry (SFG) magnet assembly, the Studio 530 bookshelf loudspeaker’s low-frequency woofer delivers highly focused bass. The result is pristine, articulate sound.
1" (25mm) high-frequency compression driver
The JBL Studio 530 bookshelf 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-millimeter) 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 reverberations, sound reflections off walls, and other artifacts. The Studio 530 bookshelf loudspeaker features a glass-filled ABS Bi-Radial high-frequency horn that delivers professional-level sound to your home.
Low-loss, two-way crossover network
The Studio 530 bookshelf loudspeaker’s low-loss, two-way crossover network ensures a clean transition for sound coming from individual low- and high-frequency drivers, thereby reducing distortion while improving clarity.
The Studio 530 bookshelf 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 way you can use the Studio 530 speaker.
Sturdy 3/4" (19mm) MDF enclosure
The Studio 530 bookshelf loudspeaker’s cabinet is built with the same attention-to-sound-perfection as every other component. Rigid, heavily braced materials prevent unwanted resonance, while non-parallel surfaces eliminate sound interference.
The same attention to detail that went into the Studio 530 bookshelf 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 530 is available in a black or cherry finish.

These were in my cart to purchase for $297.00 they are now $599.00. Anyone know how often they go on sale?
Hi, are you planning on getting/producting any more of these speakers? Secondary markets are selling these are HUGE markups and hard to find. I have the 580s and 520c, but desperately looking for these to use as surrounds.
Which would be safest and best sounding power amp for the JBL Studio 530's between the Emotiva A-150 which can deliver 112.5 watts at 6 ohms per channel, or the Emotiva A-300 which delivers 225 watts per channel at 6 ohms? Extra wattage vs. under?
Where are these made?
Hi. I own Yamaha A-S1000. Is my Integrated Amplifier to strong for this speaker? Thanx.
Will I be able to wrap or insert a copper wire on a terminal in the back of the speaker?
Are there going to be more cherry colored studio 530 in Stock ever?
The specifications for these speakers state "Dual gold-plated binding posts (bi-wire capable)". But, can these speakers be Bi-Amped?
