This Loudspeaker works as center channel ? 

Asked by: Juandres
Our JBL Arena 55IW was designed to be a part of a home theater setup and used as a speaker. It’s not possible to use it as a center channel. You can check out our JBL Arena 55IW spec sheet for more information: https://bit.ly/2MuDbUI

125 amp needed. Is that RMS or what?

Asked by: Jim in Mo
It would be for the Recommended Amplifier Power. The ARENA 55IW requires at least 120W.
