Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great living room speaker Great Center Speaker The center speaker by far is the most important speaker in anyone's A/V setup. Over 70% of all speaker sound is from your center. The JBL Arena 125 is the best sounding center I have ever owned. I have matched the Arena 125 with Arena 180 tower speakers in the front and they work together nicely. The Arena 125 has two ported holes in the back of the speaker which adds a nice amount of bass to the tone. The speaker picks up sounds that I haven't heard before from TV programs that I have watched many times. You would have a difficult time finding a speaker that sounds better than this JBL for under $1,000.

I have a sony str-dh520 av receiver,and a pair of jbl es30 speakers. would the arena 125 center speaker work well in this system ? what kind of tweeter does it have?

Asked by: billy b
The perfect match for the ES30 would be the ES25C. Unfortunately, the ES25C is no longer available. The closest match is the ARENA 125. While it is not a perfect match, sonically, it is very close. The ARENA 125 has a horn loaded 1" soft dome tweeter.

Would the Arena 125C pair well with the Loft 40s? Looking to improve dialogue quality and if not which one would you recommend?

Asked by: lostelric
Yes, ARENA 125C would pair well with your LOFT 40. If you're looking for a home theater system to better match your existing speaker, here are the general rules to picking out speakers/receivers for your system. 1. Make sure the receiver can handle the impedance/ohms of the speakers. Typical impedance and 8 ohms is almost never a problem. 2. Make sure that the speakers you choose can handle the power rating of your receiver. If you have a 100 watt per channel receiver, be sure the speakers you choose have a wattage rating of 100 watts or higher. 3. Stick with the same series of speaker, so that all of the speakers have the same sonic tonal quality, giving you a seamless transition when sound travels from one speaker to another. For example, if you select the ARENA 125C floor standing speakers for your front speakers, be sure to select the arena series center and bookshelf speakers for your rears.

Just got this speaker and was wondering if I should set my center channel on my receiver to "large full range speaker" or "small"? The small setting uses my subwoofer's crossover at 80hz. The large setting sends the full frequency band to the speaker.

Asked by: kingphisher
It is okay to set the size to small since you have a subwoofer to take care of the bottom frequencies. This would then only send frequencies at 80Hz above which will not force your ARENA 125C to play the sub frequencies and work harder than it should.

Would the Arena 125C pair well with my JBL HLS410 bookshelf speakers?  If not what would you recommend seeing that the HLS family is discontinued (my HLS410's are great little speakers).

Asked by: jbl_fan
The HLS410's are definitely great speakers. If it will sound great with the ARENA 125C's is a matter of preference. The specifications on these speakers does not go too far from each other so we should know that it will sound right.
