Arena 125C is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 13.
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. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

The Arena 125C was not designed to be mounted on a wall. But you may use some universal bracket and do some modifications if needed.

I have troubles when connecting the speaker as a center system with the Pioneer VSX-831-S amplifier. I have configured the VSX-831-S amplifier as a 3 speaker system, but the JBL center does not work anymore. Can you help me? Thank you in advance.

Asked by: jrelus
That’s because a 3 speaker setup is left right and sub. No center or surrounds.

Hur bra skulle en Arena 125C funka som center till 4 st JBL Control 1?

Asked by: grovkalle
Om du har fyra stycken Control 1 anslutna till L/R och surround L/R-kanaler i en surround receiver, kan du använda Arena 125C som en center. Du måste dock dubbelkolla utgångskanalerna på din receiver för att se till att du kan använda denna högtalare (max 150W @ 8ohm).

I have a pair of JBL Control 1 Pro speakers which are 4 Ohm speakers. This Arena 125C is 8 ohm's . Would it be a problem to mix the impedance in my home theater?

Would the Arena 125C pair well with my JBL XTi 80 speakers?  If not what would you recommend?
