What is your overall opinion of this product?
A very impressive set of near field monitors! The starter kit makes a very nice addition too. JBL has done an amazing job with these. I ha these now for nearly 2 months, and they're setting on top of my Alesis monitors that I've been using for the last 10+ years, also purchased from AMS. I have also purchased a SM Pro audio M-patch 2, so that I can switch between and control both sets of monitors during this session.
Admittedly, there were a few small issues I wasn't crazy about at first… I'm not a big fan of having the bass port on the back, and the first time I turned these on I was unaware that it takes them about seven or so seconds before they actually turn on. Also, the power scheme didn't make a lot of sense to me. My Alesis monitors are 100 W each, 75 W to the lows, & 25 to the highs. To me, that makes sense. So while doing research, the JBL's threw me a little.
But the bottom line, and what really matters, is the sound they produce which is fantastic!
Look no further, you've just found the best sounding, low-budget, near field monitors on the market!
