ES25C is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality I have the es series speakers for 5 months now and this center speaker completes the system. You can't give much bass to this center speaker which is comman on all center speakers. But quality of the sound is unmatched. I have the harman kardon avr1710s receiver and u can adjust the frequency on it for all speakers which helps alot for specific speakers. Amazing sound

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product (and others I have purchased) are AWESOME!!! They far exceeded my expectations. The specifications were very accurate. I am enjoying them very much. I have been very happy, not only with the products, but on-time delivery, condition upon delivery, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound!!!! Had this speaker installed for several days and have put it through all I need to use it for and I am very pleased. I purchased it to replace a center speaker of my own design that was at least twice this size, bigger inclosure,bigger speakers and more of them! This blows it away! I have a 7.1 system with all JBL except the Sub, (using two of different brands now) and the 2 back speakers now. Hopefully those will come next!! Love JBL products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply fantastic sound! I ordered this item because the voice was lacking during movies, music, etc.. This center offers powerful, clear, voice and carries the sound beautifully. I actually ordered a pair of ES30's to pair up as the fronts. Not only does this system sound excellent, it looks sharp and fits with almost any room perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Sounds wonderful with my ES80s up front! The price is shocking.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too much emphasis on the high notes. Seems to be missing the lower notes of a persons voice. When I watch TV, especially older shows, only the center channel speaker plays. When it does, it does not seem to have a full sound of a normal person's voice. It is though someone had an equalizer and emphasized the treble and de-emphasized the low notes. If I had a receiver with an equalizer, I could adjust it. However I do not have equalizer so I am stuck with it. My older center channel speaker was too tall to fit in my TV stand (7 5/8) high but the new one is 7 inches high and fits. I might mention when I watch movies and all the speakers are on (or playing music), then the center channel high notes only deficiency is not noticeable. Again, the problem only shows up on TV shows where the sound comes out of the center speaker only. I might upgrade my receiver to one with an equalizer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speaker I added this speaker to replace a tiny center speaker. I've been replacing my speakers a little at a time, new JBL sub 1.5 years ago and JBL tower speakers a year ago. Adding the center channel speaker makes movies and music that much clearer. It was a great buy for a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A really great value for your money! This center channel has upgraded my previous system by leaps and bounds. It has very good midrange and deeper frequencies. The price can't be beat for overall quality. This whole line of speakers is really well priced for the sound quality you receive. Can't wait to pick up two more ES20's for rear surrounds! :)

Which is the best receiver for use with this speaker series, i was opting to go for ARV1710s with this ES series ES80,ES10,ES250P subwoofer and ES25C but again ES25C is not available.

Asked by: chrisNo
All of the Harman AVR receivers will work fine with the ES speaker line. The ES speakers can handle the wattage output of all of the receivers, so it is just a matter of deciding which receiver has the power/wattage and features you desire.

Do the ES90 and LS890 have similar black wood finish? Does the wood grain show?

Asked by: tim1955
Yes, that is correct. They are black, but you can see the wood grain through the black finish.

Is the ES25C CENTER SPEAKER  WALL MOUNTABLE ?

Asked by: Manny
Unfortunately you cannot wall mount the ES25C center channel speaker. This speaker has a port tube in the rear. Blocking this port against the wall will negatively effect the sonic quality of the speaker, so this is not something we can recommend doing.
