JBL speakers

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
A friend of mine is trying to sell a set of JBL speakers (see below for the specifics) and said he'd sell them to me for $450. I don't know a whole lot about speakers or speaker brands, would this be a good price or can i do better for ~450? This would be used for a 5.1 home theater setup.

that is a decent deal. those speakers have been discontinued and i dunno the msrps but they were certainly higher than that. what matters is if you like the speakers or not. see if you can borrow them first and test them in your room.

With Gorb and you will want decent power to them. You may even want to consider an external amp to drive them properly. If your going to use just a receiver, make sure you do with something decent. If not, your tweeters will go first followed by rest of the system if your cranking them with an underpowered receiver.
