The 6IW's rotating cams provide secure installation against the back of your wall.

JBL's Arena 6IW in-wall speaker blends in smoothly with any décor, offering crisp full-range sound that's great with TV, movies, and music. Use a pair for the left and right channels in your home theater. Or put them in rooms where you want music without taking up floor space.

You'll enjoy crisp bass from the 6-1/2" woofer, along with smooth highs from the 1" silk dome tweeter.

Born from JBL's storied audio heritage

The Arena series' rich, distinctive sound was modeled after JBL's legendary M2 Master Reference Monitor — one of the best speakers they ever created. JBL's proprietary HDI waveguide helps this speaker deliver optimum sound quality throughout your room.

Match your décor

The 6IW combines great sound with a sleek design. The low-profile grille is magnetic, so attaching it to the speaker is a breeze. It's also paintable, so you can match it to your room's décor.

The zero-bezel edge means no bulk around the sides of the grille, making it virtually disappear into your wall.

DIY installation

JBL's rotating-cam design makes your in-wall installation go smoother. Once you have the 6IW in place, simply use a screwdriver to tighten each cam for a secure grip against the back of the wall.

If this is a do-it-yourself installation, check out our guide to installing in-wall and in-ceiling speakers, along with our selection of in-wall speaker wire. Free lifetime technical support is provided with every Crutchfield purchase.

Features

Two-Way Driver Design: The JBL Arena 6IW in-wall loudspeaker utilizes a two-way driver design with a single 1" silk soft-dome tweeter and a 6.5" polycellulose long-throw woofer with rubber surround. Computer-optimized driver positioning and a precision crossover network result in ideal performance and lifelike soundstage imaging.

High Definition Imaging (HDI) Waveguide: The JBL Arena 6IW in-wall speaker's tweeter incorporates a High Definition Imaging (HDI) Waveguide. This High Definition Imaging (HDI) waveguide technology takes its cues from the legendary JBL M2 Master Reference Monitor. The HDI waveguide aids in the tweeter's ability to produce a lifelike soundstage with accuracy and clarity.

Zero-Bezel Magnetic Grille: The zero-bezel magnetic grille is nearly invisible (protruding only 0.25" from wall), seamlessly blending into your room's decor. The grille is also paintable for an even more seamless look.

In-Wall Installation: The JBL Arena 6IW in-wall loudspeaker offers a sturdy, reliable installation design that fits walls from 0.5" to 2" thick. Specialty locking clamps secure the in-wall speaker in place and are designed to minimize vibration. There needs to be at least 1" between the edge of the supplied mounting template and any rafters or other obstructions behind the wall, so the speaker's locking mechanism will  have room to engage fully.

  • Frame Diameter (w/ Grille): 8.375" (w) x 10.9375" (h) x 0.25" (d)
  • Cutout Opening: 7.25" (w) x 9.8125" (h) x 3.4375" (d)

Spring Post Terminals: The JBL Arena 6IW in-wall speaker is fitted with a set of spring-post terminals which will accept bare-wire (up to 10AWG), pin-connectors, and banana plugs (single or dual). The spring-post terminals are gold-plated for maximum signal transfer and resistance to corrosion.

Applications: The JBL Arena 6IW in-wall loudspeaker is engineered for the custom installer with a whole-house, seamless audio and visual design in mind. In addition to distributed whole-house audio, the Arena 6IW in-wall speaker can also be used in more conventional stereo & home theater applications.
