JBL has provided speakers to movie theaters for over 60 years, and now brings the same level of quality and excitement to your living room with the Cinema 500 5.1 Surround Sound Home Theater Speaker System. This compact and stylish system is designed to give you optimal quality in an unobtrusive package that won't break the bank. The center speaker has dual midrange drivers for improved power handling and efficiency, delivering clear dialog. The 4 identical satellite speakers are voice-matched to the center speaker to provide consistency across the system for the most realistic soundstage.

The system also features a 150W down-firing 8" subwoofer to deliver realistic, high-impact bass. It has phase, level, and bass-boost controls so you can tune the performance to match your room's acoustics and your personal bass preferences. Line and LFE inputs provide simple connection to virtually any AV receiver. The down-firing design eliminates wall reflections that create muddy audio, while the ported enclosure increases bass output and quality.

Other features include CEA color-coded speaker connections, keyholes in the satellites for easy wall mounting, and video shielding for safe use near televisions and other electronics. The system uses less than 1W of power in standby mode, and all of the required wires and cables are included for setup.
