Product Highlights
  • 125W Subwoofer
  • Titanium Laminate-Dome Tweeter
  • High Gloss Black Finish

JBL has created the CS480BG 6-Piece Home Cinema Speaker Package, an aesthetically pleasing home theater system that will be a treat to your ears as well. The CS480BG 6-Piece Home Cinema Speaker Package features 4 identical satellites, matching center speaker and a room-shaking 125W subwoofer. Each satellite contains JBL's technologically advanced titanium-laminate-dome tweeters and 3-1/2" drivers for high resolution sound. The double driver center speaker shares the same components for seamless pans and crystal clear dialogue. JBL has packaged this 6-piece system with a high gloss black finish that will fit seamlessly with any flat-panel television or any decor. Wall brackets are included for the satellites and center channel.

Ultra Stiff Cones
Tight, precise bass is created from JBL's polymer coated cellulose-fiber cones with pistonic motion, eliminating internal resonances without increasing cone mass.
Intense Imaging
EOS waveguides in each speaker disperse high frequencies creating precise stereo imaging over a wide listening area.
Pinpoint Accuracy
JBL's extremely rigid titanium-laminate dome, reinforced with a foil laminate, ensures undistorted high-frequency response, even in high volume situations.
Tight Bass Response
The FreeFlow Bass reflex port has computer optimized geometry to maximize deep bass response while eliminating unwanted turbulence and noise.

        Comments about JBL CS480BG 6-Piece Home Cinema Speaker Package:

        I bought these speakers for my apartment and have been AMAZED by the sound. I have them hooked up to my Harman Kardon AVR 154 and have loved the results. The surround sound is incredible and the speakers provide clean, crisp audio. The subwoofer is fantastic and I have not even turned it up half-way to its full power for fear of angering neighboring apartments. I found these speakers on sale for about [$] dollars. I use these speakers for Blu-ray movies, video games, and television. I have had these speakers for almost a year now and they have provided no problems for me. As other reviews may say, the speaker cable provided is a little on the short side, but in my apartment living room, I do not have a problem with it. There will be applications that replacement speaker cable with a longer length could be needed. On top of the speakers providing such incredible sound, they are also attractive to look at and are not an eyesore near your television. I would recommend these speakers to anyone looking for a good set of speakers at a pretty decent price. Some people may say that the sound isn't as good as some $1000 dollar systems, and while that may be true, I doubt that you are going to be disappointed with these speakers.

          Everything about this product screamed quality. From the packaging, to the documentation, to the mounts. The mounts are great, included for each speaker is both a fixed mount and swivel ball-joint mount. Only thing not included in the box was screws and anchors, but the directions told you exactly what to use. I hooked everything up to a Yamaha RV-565 and it sounds great too. I would recommend to anyone in this price point.

              The speakers produce sound that is crisp and clear. The wall mounts were very easy to install, and it is super easy to point the speakers in any desired direction. In summary, this is a fantastic value for this type of speaker package, and I am completely satisfied.

                Comments about JBL CS480BG 6-Piece Home Cinema Speaker Package:

                I purchased these speakers a few weeks ago and was pleasantly surprised when they arrived. Each speaker was individually wrapped with a lint free cloth and then inside a plastic bag. The kit also came with all the needed speaker wire, a subwoofer cable, and two styles of wall mounts.

                I found the sound to be quite pleasing and clear. The only thing I'm not 100% thrilled about is the subwoofer - I'd prefer something a little more powerful, but for an 8" woofer it does a good job. My current placement options for the sub are limited which may be the cause of slightly less than desired output.

                The glossy finish of the speakers match my Samsung LCD TV - they practically look like they were designed for each other.

                Overall I'm very satisfied with the purchase and would recommend this product to anyone looking for an affordable, attractive speaker system for a small to medium sized room - perfect for an apartment or condo.
