Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speakers at a good price I purchased these speakers for my basement home entertainment system to replace my front Infinity Studio Monitors. The sound dispersion, clarity and musical accuracy is great. The only real area that I think they are lacking is in low end bass response which I believe is less than what is delivered by my old Infinity Reference Six four-way towers in my family room system. The mid-bass performance of the JBL's is fine. I purchased and installed a new Infinity Reference SUB R12 subwoofer to go along with the Stage A190s that does a very good job in taking care of the low end bass. I also have the Stage A190's used with a JBL Studio center channel speaker and Infinity Reference bookshelf speakers for the rear surround. All combined these speakers sound great when watching movies and deliver a theater-like experience. The JBL Stage A190s also sound great when listening to classic rock. I highly recommend the JBL Stage A190s.

Product Q&A

Where do these speakers fall in line?. Are they above the studio 2 series. Do they fill the gap between the 5 series and 2 series?

Asked by: Nickflicks
The STAGE series are considered to be a step below the STUDIO series because of the less expensive retail price lack of a midrange driver, as compared to the STUDIO 290. Although, when looking at the specs, one can argue that some of the specs on the STAGE looks better than the STUDIO.

Hi, I have the 190 A as L and R and 135 c as Centre. Could you please recommend a speaker for rear surround and Atmos/ceiling speaker and lastly the appropriate subwoofer to build an amazing theatre like experience? 

Asked by: Brajonnz
We can recommend our JBL Stage A120 or A130 as surround speakers. For the subwoofer, you can try our JBL StageA120P. The recommended set up for our JBL Stage A series would be 5.1 or 7.1. We can recommend our JBL Arena 8IC or Arena 6IC as ceiling speakers.
