I am looking for a good stereo set up. Not very fond of subwoofers and surround sound systems. But I am very much a audiophile when it comes to the quality a speaker can deliver. Can the Arena 170 used on stereo amp deliver a well balanced experience?

Asked by: ByronTheron
Certainly. The ARENA 170 and the whole series in general was inspired by the Master Reference Monitor series which assures that you'll get the best value from your purchase providing you clean, and powerful high and low-ends.

How many JBL 170 speakers are needed for a home theate system

Asked by: Srini
Since the ARENA 170 is a floor-standing speaker, it normally is being used as Front Left & Right speakers. Having this said, two of this will work well paired with other Arena series speaker for your Center and Surround channel speakers.

I'm not sure if seeing no reviews of this product is a good or a bad thing. Do these speakers do very well with music and or Hard Rock  with just a 7" and no smaller mid that's good for voice. Do these speakers compare well with the es250p sub. 

Asked by: camiester
These are great sounding speakers. They give the best of both worlds. Many people actually prefer the sound of a bookshelf speaker, but often feel they are missing just a little bit of bass. The ARENA 170 is a bookshelf speaker in a bigger enclosure, allowing for deeper bass response. It sounds great. If you add an ES250P to it, it will be amazing, as the ES250P will cover all of the subsonic frequencies. The two together will be great.

I am considering the Arena 170s for my home theater front channels and may upgrade my center and surrounds to match. My question is for the bang for buck, is the Arena series the best? Should I be considering a 200 series system?
