Unmatched cinematic sound from any angle Home theater should never be anything but 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 JBL® Studio 235C dual 2.5-way center channel loudspeaker. Part of the new 10-piece JBL Studio 2 loudspeaker series, the Studio 235C 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 235C wins the crown for accuracy – and then some. Its dual 6.5” PolyPlas midrange drivers accentuate the power of every word and whisper. Its rear-firing Slipstream bass port heightens your senses and deepens your appreciation with tight, accurate bass. And that’s all for starters. Taking cues from our work developing some of the world’s most legendary recording studios, we’ve given the Studio 235C the same kind of kinetic intensity you’d hear at the movies. A 1” CMMD® Lite high-frequency driver ensures low-distortion. Meanwhile, a High Definition Imaging (HDI) waveguide design offers pinpoint sound imaging and firm natural balance – whatever angle you’re listening at. To top it all off, we’ve decked out our loudspeaker with seductive 21st century features 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 see and hear the Studio 235C.
Product Features:
  • Dual 6.5” PolyPlas drivers deliver unrivaled accuracy, subtlety, and realism

Studio 235C is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing center channel JBL has again amazed me with what they are capable off. This center channel is capable of picking up the slightest detail and delivering it to a wide sweet spot regardless of where you sit. Its pure and clear, just the way the sound engineer intended it to sound. I am an avid high end speaker collector and I have yet to find speakers that can rival the JBLs

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid performance This completed my Studio surround sound system. This speaker is of great size and matches my 230s,220s and 260P. Very happy with it. Looks nice and seamlessly blends with other speakers. Matching speakers does make a difference. Find myself watching movies already seen with a new experience. Was great buy on sale and free 2 day shipping.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from JBL - Studio 235C I bought my first Studio 235C late last year and liked what I heard. Nice low end and more importantly a nice smooth high end. I decided to change out the center on a second system in the house and found the 235c was not listed anymore. I tried a 225c and found it to be, not even close. It was returned. The 235c then became listed again on the Harmon site only. Got one and love it also. Sounds a little different, but still quite nice. My systems are all JBL with Control 1 Pro's and a 12 inch woofer. It kicks butt. The rooms are rather small so it all works great. If JBL/Harmon is phasing this model out, it would be a big mistake. The 235c is a very respectable product,

What jbl center speaker you will recommend for jbl studio 590 speakers?

Asked by: vettefrs
You can use the JBL STUDIO 235C together with the STUDIO 590 speakers, as long as the receiver you're going to connect it to supports 8 ohms as well. But it would be best to have the STUDIO 520C as the center speaker since it belongs to the same series as the STUDIO 590 and has the same 6 ohms rating for impedance.

Can this be a bluetooth hookup or is there a way to get this connected to your phone for parties?

Asked by: Iawilsh8
Studio 235C does not have a Bluetooth feature or capability to connect wirelessly as this will have to plug in using a speaker wire directly to the receiver.

Regarding the port in the back for the driver. Will it have enough room to "breath" with an inch from a wall or can I just put a foam plug in? Thanks

Asked by: Thehhhh
You must have at least 2 - 3 inches of space between the rear of the unit and any shelf or component above the unit. The unit should not be inside a sealed compartment when being used. The unit must be able to breath so there would be no problems in the long run.

Can the rear ports be plugged since I will be putting them about a 1/2" from the wall?

Asked by: Theh
Yes, you can use plugs like a banana plug to put it in the rear port of the Studio 235C.

I have just purchased the studio 235c and wanted to confirm if I use it on my Anthem power amp rated at 225 wpc @ 8ohms. Will that much power at higher volume damage the speaker since the speaker recommended amplifier power is rated at 150 watts max

Asked by: Vijen
Hi! You can definitely use your Studio 235c on your amplifier that is rated at 225watts per channel @ 8 ohms. Just make sure that the volume is not turned up too much all the time, and your Studio 235 will be in good shape.

being as big as it is. its kinda hard to not have it placed all the way back to a wall. how far away from the ports should it be? larry

Asked by: mafosa
From the wall, You can give it a 4-5" space for the wires to go through. this should be enough space for your hands if there's some fine adjustments needed with the wires.

I'm planning on doing a in wall home theater system. What all you recommend from JBL? I used JBL speakers before and I love them. Never used the in wall speakers and confused what to pick? Also, does the center speaker go in-wall as well? Thanks!
