A truly enveloping theater-quality surround-sound experience begins with the center channel. The Studio 520C center-channel loudspeaker raises your home system to the next level with the kind of advanced technology that JBL® engineers developed for professional audio systems. The Studio 520C features a pair of 4-inch (100-millimeter) low-frequency woofers and a high-frequency compression driver surrounded by a glass-filled Bi-Radial® horn, a combination that delivers crisp, focused, dimensionally accurate sound. Using specially developed materials – including a ribbed PolyPlas™ cone and a Symmetrical Field Geometry™ (SFG) magnet assembly for the woofers – the Studio 520C delivers powerful and focused bass sound. A compression tweeter housed within the same type of Bi-Radial horn that JBL engineers developed for concert sound systems delivers high frequencies that are equally distinct and precisely aimed.
Product Features:
  • 25 – 150 watts suggested amplifier power range
    JBL engineers have designed the Studio 520C center-channel loudspeaker to deliver robust sound from a compatible AVR (audio/video receiver) or 25- to 150-watt power amplifier, whether you are using it as a stand-alone unit or as the centerpiece of a surround-sound system.
  • Dual 4" (100mm) PolyPlas woofer cones
    Powerful bass affects more than just your ears. It resonates through your entire body, creating a soundscape that you can feel as well as hear. The JBL Studio 520C center-channel loudspeaker delivers accurate low-frequency sounds from a pair of 4-inch (100-millimeter) ribbed PolyPlas woofers. The ribs improve strength while reducing distortion. The result is rich, articulate bass.
  • Symmetrical Field Geometry (SFG) magnet assembly
    Thanks to a heavy-duty Symmetrical Field Geometry (SFG) magnet assembly, the Studio 520C center-channel loudspeaker’s dual low-frequency woofers deliver highly focused bass. The result is pristine, articulate sound.
  • 1" (25mm) high-frequency compression driver
    The JBL Studio 520C center-channel loudspeaker’s high-frequency compression driver lowers distortion and provides a wider dynamic range than is possible from conventional high-frequency and midrange drivers. The tweeter includes a one-piece Teonex® diaphragm/surround assembly fitted with a 1-inch (25-millimeter) voice coil that can deliver enhanced vocal articulation.
  • Glass-filled ABS Bi-Radial high-frequency horn
    Horn-shaped loudspeaker designs optimize high-frequency output by directing the sound to the listener with pinpoint accuracy, thereby eliminating reverberations, reflections off walls, and other artifacts. The Studio 520C center-channel loudspeaker features a glass-filled ABS Bi-Radial high-frequency horn that delivers professional-level sound to your home.
  • Low-loss, two-way crossover network
    The Studio 520C center-channel loudspeaker’s low-loss, two-way crossover network ensures a clean transition for sound coming from individual low-frequency and high-frequency drivers, thereby reducing distortion while improving clarity.
  • Bi-wire capability
    The Studio 520C center-channel loudspeaker will work with multiple power amplifiers or connection setups – or both – for single-wire or bi-wire operation. The result is enhanced versatility in the ways you can use the Studio 520C speaker.
  • Sturdy 3/4" (19mm) MDF enclosure
    The Studio 520C center-channel loudspeaker’s cabinet is built with the same attention to perfection as every other component. Rigid, heavily braced MDF (medium-density fiberboard) materials prevent unwanted resonances, while non-parallel surfaces eliminate sonic interference.
  • Exclusive design
    The same attention to detail that went into the 520C center-channel loudspeaker’s technical design was paid to creating a powerful, sophisticated look that will fit within even the most discerning householder’s décor. The 520C is available in a black or cherry finish.

Studio 520C heeft als beoordeling 4.9 van de 5 door 7.
Rated 5 van de 5 door uit Awesome Center Channel Speaker Great center channel speaker for a large room setup. Center channel vocals and dialog stand right out regardless of the source (TV, music, etc.). I use the Studio L820's for my front left and right speaker. The fit great on standard 11" deep book shelves. Overall sound quality is outstanding. I do use a subwoofer for lowest frequencies.

Rated 5 van de 5 door uit Great center speaker I was pleasantly surprised that this small center speaker can keep up with the studio 590 speakers. Not only does it keep up but it blends flawlessly. I own several large center speakers like SVS Ultra center and Klipsch rc-64 ii both great speakers and wasn't to worried about having a center that worked in my system. Decide to try the studio 520C, I like to have systems that match. Vocals are crisp and clear and music sounds great. Crossed it over at 80hz and surprisingly get decent base out of it for the size woofers it has. I think it would be nice if JBL made a larger center so you have the opportunity to chose something with larger woofers, but all in all this center works much better than I thought it would, and couldn't be happier with the combination. Great job JBL PS. Had the JBL LS center and wasn't nearly as happy with it vocals were sometimes hard to hear. The 520C is much more clear

Rated 4 van de 5 door uit Wonderful sound replaces a very big name $2500 speaker and gives the old a run for its money. Blends in very well with 4 Martin Logans, and no CD horn correction needed. one negative, where is the mounting software? Not in the box, and nowhere to be bought.

Rated 5 van de 5 door uit Excellent Sound I bought a pair of 570's a pair of 530's and the 520 center and the sound blows me away how good they are.

I have only this center speaker, is that possible connect to optical output from my smart TV without amp?

Gevraagd door: h816
Hi! Unfortunately, you will be needing an amplifier for the speaker to work. It uses speaker level inputs which you will be connecting at the back of a receiver/amplifier, then connect it to your TV.

Would you recommend this center with my set up? If not which one would you recomend? Current 5.1 Set-up (all speakers JBL), Denon X4400 ES-80 mains S-center Arena 8IC rears (installing this week to replace ceiling mounted N-24's) PB-12 sub

Gevraagd door: Joeharv68
I always recommend using the same speaker in the center as you use for front left & right if you have the room to do so. Why? You want that center speaker to put out the "full range" because 80% of the film sound eminates from the center speaker. If you look behind the screen at a commercial Cinema you'll see a 3 way, horn loaded, tower speaker in the center position & usually it's identical to the left/right mains. In my home, my surround system's in the front room, running a center tower speaker isn't practical, so I use a Pioneer CS-22 center speaker placed atop a 475 watt, powered, BIC F12 subwoofer, which means the center position throws full range sound down to 20hz. This approach ensures you're getting a faithful center sound field reproduction. Now when guns or bombs go off in the film, it sounds and feels real! So, I'd advise using the same technique if you already own the standard JBL center speaker. However, if you have the space and can fit a tower speaker in the center spot? I'd put a JBL tower in the center position. A dream setup would be: 3 JBL Studio 590's across the front in the L-C-R spots. 4 JBL Studio 530's in the surround positions. 2 JBL Arena 120's for ATMOS ceiling speakers. 2 BIC F12 subwoofers. 1 Yamaha Aventage 11.2 ATMOS AV Receiver. That speaker setup would be unbeatable! ~ peace

Hi- Is Studio 520C compatible with Yamaha RX-V483BL 5.1-Channel 4K Ultra HD MusicCast AV Receiver?

Gevraagd door: ppsomu
YES! The Yamaha RX line will easily drive 6 ohm loads. Make sure you go into the sound menu & select 6 ohm setting. Yamaha's AV receiver line is the best when it comes to ohm load capabilities. Example: My Yamaha RX-V467 powered a 5 speaker satellite set which were all rated at 4 ohms. This RX-V467 powered the entire setup to ear bleeding volumes and never got hot once! So a 6 ohm load is no sweat for your RX-V483. My opinion is, your receiver will make your speakers sing. In fact, Yamaha is the only AV Receiver line that I'll buy for my home theater..period. Feel blessed you were smart & bought Yamaha. Remember, make sure you go into the menu and select 6 ohm. ~ peace

Is jbl 520c is magnetically shielded

Gevraagd door: Vimal2jbl
This may be a moot point. If you have a cathode ray tube, then yes, you will need a magnetically shielded speaker. If you have a flat screen, then there is no magnetic field to be concerned with. This is why you hear less and less about that feature in speakers.
