How riveting dialogue was meant to be heard Home theater listening should never be anything except riveting. That goes for everyone listening to a movie, TV show, or console game– even if they’re seated way off to one side. That’s why we developed the new JBL® Studio 225C dual 2.5-way center channel loudspeaker. Part of the new 10-piece JBL Studio 2 loudspeaker series, the Studio 225C was built to bring depth and cinematic nuance to everything you hear on screen. Tested relentlessly in the world’s most advanced sound research lab – our own – and pitted against competitors in real world comparative listening studies, the Studio 225C wins the crown for accuracy. Its dual 4” PolyPlas drivers accentuate the power of every word spoken.Its rear-firing Slipstream bass port deepens your senses with tight, accurate bass. And that’s just getting started. Taking a page from our own work in developing some of the world’s most legendary recording studios, we’ve given the Studio 225C the same kind of kinetic intensity you’d hear at the movies. A 1” CMMD® Lite high-frequency driver ensures low-distortion. A High Definition Imaging (HDI) waveguide design offers pinpoint sound imaging and firm natural balance – no matter where you’re standing or sitting. Even better, we’ve decked out our loudspeaker with seductive 21st century touches like gloss black paneling, soft rounded edges, and your choice of either Black or Espresso woodgrain finish. For those able to see and hear the truth, we’re confident you’ll know it – full volume – when you meet the Studio 225C.

Hi, I use a pair of JBL L-100 Century speakers as my main pair, so can you tell me the best tonal match for these in a centre speaker please? Thanks

What are sonic similarities and differences b/w Studio 2 and Studio 3 (LSR) series?

Asked by: Azfar
These two speakers series or products cannot be compared easily at all. The JBL PRO Series 3 LSR speakers are designed as studio monitors, to be used in recording studios with a very flat/natural response, while the JBL Consumer STUDIO 2 speakers are designed for use in a home for stereo and/or surround sound listening. They will likely have a bit more punch to accommodate the demands of that environment.

Would the Studio 225c be a good timbre match for a pair of JBL E100 speakers. I am looking for a center to match these tower speakers that will sound good with high resolution multichannel music at reference volume.

Asked by: BrianML
Same problem here. I have a pair of e100 and looking for a center channel to match. I got the studio 225c and with some adjustments of +3db (or so) on my Marantz receiver, it is just perfect. In some instances it sounds even better than the e100.
