I have two SVS SB 2000 subwoofers two prime bookshelf speakers and a prime center speaker will these speakers fit in

Asked by: TCT65
It would depend on the amplifier you are using. The ARENA 180 can handle power of up to 225 W at 6-ohms. As long as you are using an amplifier with the same rating, it should not be a problem. But assuming that you own an SVS prime center which is a 3-way, 8 ohm speaker that has dual 6.5" woofers (20-200 watts), then I think the Studio 280s would be a better fit.

Will these work well with the JBL ES25CBK? Will the timbre match?

Asked by: Panthro
Both the ARENA 180 and the ES25CBK uses a dome tweeter and have a waveguide orientation. Although the ES25CBK has a super tweeter, and might be slightly brighter than the ARENA 180. It won't be a bad fit.

Looking for some stereo speakers to listen to vinyl & cd's thru a vintage restored Yamaha CA 610 II integrated amp, Which are better suited the Arena's or the Studio floor models. Thanks.

Asked by: 70442
Checking on the specifications of your integrated amp 40W per channel @ 8ohms, both speaker models will work fine with your receiver. Comparing the two models Studio and Arena line, Studio model would be a step higher than the Arena. With this being said, choosing the Studio 280 or 290 Floor standing speakers will give you deeper bass and better sound overall than the Arena 180s.

Do I need a subwoofer ? if I do, which speakers model could you recomend me yo buy?

Asked by: eduardo_doom
If you are looking to complete a 2.1, 5.1, 7.1 or 7.2 speaker system, you would need a sub woofer with the system. Since you are opting to use the ARENA 180 as your floor standing speaker, i would highly suggest that you go with the ARENA SUB 100P.

What would be the long time maximum power it could support? I plan to purchase an AVR but need this data to calculate the power needs. Say if 180 support 50W long time playing, I would purchase a 100W per channel AVR to feed it well.

Asked by: TimberTrail
The ARENA 180 can safely handle a power of up to 225W continuously. This means that driving this speaker at this wattage should not cause any damage.

Can the arena 180 be used in a room 12feet X 10 feet and back to a wall ?

Asked by: Phil1961
Hi, Thank you for the interest in our JBL Arena series! Yes, you can easily use this floor speaker in that room. You can even go down a size, if you feel that you do not have that space required for the Area 180. If you need further assistance with selecting the right speaker, please contact our helpdesk.

Which would better with Arena 180's, Arena 125c or Studio 225c?

Asked by: Matt i
The ARENA 125C is a great speaker that can handle an awful lot of power, up to 150W, and it sounds great. Though the STUDIO 225C is a center-speaker made of better components, we would advise that you go for the ARENA. This keeps you in the same series and make sure that you will get the best balanced quality that you can get, as sound shifts from one speaker to the next. ARENA 125C is the best way to go.

Can they be directly connected to the tv? What are the options?

Asked by: dan40
No, the Arena 180 is a floor standing passive speaker that requires an amplifier/receiver to operate. The recommended amplifier power is 20 – 225W.
