JK, JBL

Letters are fun! Especially when they stand for words! 

Sure, these JBL 5.1 speakers provide immersive surround sound for your home theater, but that doesn't answer the important question: What does JBL stand for? Our team of Woot Acronymists delved into this pressing issue, and have provided the following possibilities: 

  • Just Bolshevik Leftists 
  • Jell-O Butt Lovers
  • January But Lamer
  • Jocund Band of Liechtensteiners 
  • Jailed Brachiosaurus Letters
  • Jump, Bump, Lump
  • Jesuit Belief Lessons
  • Jack Benny Laughs
  • Justice By Laser 

We don't know which one is correct, but we've narrowed it down to these as the only meaningful possibilities. Unless you can think of another one…

JBL engineers have designed the Surround Cinema Speaker systems to deliver JBL’s famous high-performance audio at a price anyone can afford. Despite its small size, the incredibly affordable SCS145.5 delivers a sound experience equal to systems much larger and much more expensive. What's more, it's presented in an elegant design that will look at home in any listening environment. In their sleek, attractive enclosure, the SCS145.5’s small, black satellite speakers disappear into a room, making them perfect for small spaces where big sound is important. And when it comes to installation flexibility, the SCS145.5 is a great value. Unlike other speaker systems at its price, the SCS145.5 includes wall-mount brackets.

Great sound starts with incredible clarity and a rich, natural midrange. Despite the SCS145.5’s small size and price, its satellites easily reach this high standard. Created in the same state-of-the-art facilities where JBL’s engineers design the company’s widely renowned (and far more expensive) premium high-end speakers, the SCS145.5 satellites will amaze you with their performance.

Titanium Tweeters Deliver Crystal Clear Sound
Half-inch titanium-laminate tweeters re-create all of the high frequencies you hear in your favorite movie or song. Titanium’s strength and light weight make it perfect for quickly and accurately reproducing high frequencies from music and movies without strain or distortion. Simply put, the SCS145.5 satellites spread smooth, high-frequency sound over a large listening area.

Lightweight Midrange Woofers Deliver Rich Vocals
The SCS145.5’s rigid, 3" midrange drivers are both strong and lightweight. The cone is so strong that it does not allow the unwanted bending or flexing that causes harmful distortion. Being lightweight, it can easily stop and start as the audio signal from your music or movie does. The result is rich, precise sound from any medium or source.

8" Powered Subwoofer Delivers Deep Bass
Good bass is critical to a great-sounding home theater and is especially important when you are talking about a subwoofer-satellite speaker package. The SCS145.5’s eight-inch subwoofer has both strength and light weight, so it reproduces bass effortlessly and with maximum impact. Its 100-watt on-board amplifier delivers all the power that a subwoofer needs to get things really moving, while the level control allows you to customize the subwoofer’s performance to your taste. And since it uses a small enclosure, this subwoofer can fit easily into nearly any room.

Quick and Easy Installation
Whether you’re doing it yourself or a professional is doing it for you, the SCS145.5 is easy to set up and wire. High-quality connections on the back of each speaker allow you to use high-performance speaker wire, while the powered subwoofer uses a line-level LFE (low-frequency effects) connection that attaches easily to today’s 5.1- and 7.1-channel surround-sound receivers. The LFE input even has an “audio sense” circuit to turn itself off automatically when you’re not using it. The included wall brackets allow full horizontal rotation, so you can precisely lock in the best speaker placement.
