I've had a pair of these for about 12 years and I think I paid over £100 from Richer Sounds at the time. Great little speakers, still going today.

  • 25 – 200 watts suggested amplifier power range
  • Two-way speaker configuration
  • 4" (100mm) woofer and 1/2" (12mm) titanium-laminate tweeter

What's your budget? If you get these you probably need a sub. I have some, I wouldn't use with out one but get some bigger speakers, 5 inch cone possibly. These JBLs are very good just lack bass. A while ago I replaced some floorstanding Mission M73 speakers with a pair of these JBLs and there was a lot more detail.
Do these have a connector, or is it just speaker wire? Like, do they need an amp or could they be connected to a laptop.

Thanks, looking at a budget of £200 for a stereo amp. Not sure if network connectivity would be an option in that range

If you go second hand you could do. Brand new you may need to up the budget a little. In terms of brands I'm a big Yamaha fan, you could get either music only receiver or AV receiver s/hand easily for that. Denon, pioneer, Marantz also good. Not a fan of onkyo or Sony myself
I paid £49 for a pair in richer sounds to setup atmos. But never used them... Still sitting in my attic.

This would run them quite nicely.

Disagree, in my opinion they do bass but not low frequency which you'd use a sub for. These speaker are great for left and right front/rear channels and pair them with a sub and a center speaker and you all sorted. I use mine for AV mainly, not really for music, not sure what nathanfernandes would use these for.
These get used in shops a lot, because they go LOUD for their size. Mine are around 16 years old and still seem to sound okay (although human hearing goes a bit wrong on the treble end as the decades pass, perhaps someone in their early twenties would be horrified).
Don't need a sub if using as alternative to a Bluetooth speaker in a small set up.
