This speaker says that it recommends 80 watts of amplification power. I have an amp that runs 105 watts per channel in stereo. I'm not sure how the power gets distributed, so will these work for my back speakers when running a 5.0 surround system?

Asked by: zed6and789
The recommended amplifier to be used with our JBL Studio 2 6IW is a unit that has 80 watts at 8 ohms. We'd like to work with you directly and know more about how you're planning your set up. Please reach out to our Customer Support, and our representatives will contact you within 24-48 hours. https://www.jbl.com/support-contact.html

I need a home theater system . Is it suitable . Is it suitable for 7.2/7.1.If suitable what will be the receiver?

Asked by: Sukesh
These Studio 2 6" In-wall speakers are suitable for a 7.2 system . You will need a receiver that can drive 80W at 8 ohms to bring out it's full potential.

If I use the 55IW for the center speaker it will need to be mounted vertically, i.e., with one woofer above the other. How will this affect sound? Would it be better to use the 6IW for center instead? (L and R speakers will be 6IW.)

Asked by: Arnie
The JBL Arena 55IW speaker, when being used as a center channel, must be mounted horizontally. If you must do a vertical mount, you are better off using a single JBL Arena 6IW speaker.

Would these speakers work for rear surround speakers in a 5.1 system?

Asked by: Grover33
Yes, these speakers would work well as rear surround speakers assuming that your amplifier/receiver can handle it, since the impedance of this speaker is 8 ohms and the recommended amplifier power is 80W.
