The JBL Cinema Sound loudspeaker lineup consists of two compact 5.1 home theatre loudspeaker systems combining distinctively elegant design with exceptional sound quality and installation flexibility.
The JBL Cinema Sound CS680 (pictured above) and CS460 (below) both include four wall-mountable satellite speakers and a wall-mountable centre channel speaker. The CS680’s 200 mm subwoofer and the CS460’s 165 mm subwoofer both utilise 125/250-watt (RMS/Peak) and feature long-throw, downfiring, front-ported designs. The systems offer versatile installation flexibility with the satellites and centre channel coming supplied with multifunction swivel-brackets and fixed wall-mount brackets, and can be wall-, shelf- or stand-mounted for optimum positioning. The subwoofers are compact, facilitating easy integration into any room, yet provide powerful and musically accurate bass.
The systems were designed specifically to integrate beautifully into any multichannel home entertainment system and decor. The satellites and centre channel are striking and unique in appearance, with sleek, curved and tapered enclosures finished in satin black, accented by silver top and end caps. The subwoofers feature a metallic-silver and black finish that perfectly matches the loudspeakers. The slim, contemporary design of the loudspeakers makes them ideal for use in any home entertainment system, especially those based around the popular ultra-thin rear- projection TVs and flat-panel displays.
The systems utilise high-quality drivers and components, such as titanium-laminate tweeters that operate in conjunction with JBL’s exclusive Elliptical Oblate Spheroidal (EOS) waveguide, and PolyPlas woofers. They deliver dynamic, enveloping surround sound with a smooth, natural tonal balance, wide frequency response and exceptional resolution.
