Product Q&A

How does this compare to the studio 200 and the arens series? Is it a step up from the arena but below the studio 200? I am trying to decide between these a130 or the studio 230 for a small bedroom. Which performs better

Asked by: Samtheaudio
I don't know about the Arena or Studio Series but I have the Stage A 130's because if the fact they are 6 ohm which is what I needed for the compatibility of my stereo system and they sound awesome with clarity and definition. I also bought the Stage A 120 Subwoofer and it's a perfect combo.

Can these be turned on their side as opposed to sitting upright ? I need speakers to fit into a cabinet with a front that is ostensibly acoustically transparent. The Chairwoman of Aesthetics has vetoed any speakers sitting on the cabinet. Thanks !

Asked by: raddocsl
I don't think that you'd notice any real difference between these on their side or standing vertically. What you might notice is a difference if they are placed with their backs close to a wall, because of the rear-firing bass reflex port. I use my older JBL E20s with rear reflex port on a fireplace mantel, against a stone wall, and I don't have any issues with the sound when they are used that way. Because it's a rough stone wall, there is some space behind the speaker enclosures. Your mileage may vary, of course.

does this speaker have bluetooth

Asked by: GB11
JBL Stage A130 doesn't have Bluetooth functionality. Like other passive speakers, it has to be connected to an amplifier via speaker wire for it to play sound. If you wish to play music via Bluetooth from your phone or source device, you need to pair it to your amplifier, provided that it also supports Bluetooth connection. If you need more help or have more questions, you can reach out to us: https://bit.ly/2XcYSP1

This is a follow up to my previous question: I know they don’t mount. I already own them. Should they just sit on the floor then if I don’t have a bookshelf? I want to buy or make something for them to sit on with the back facing the wall.
