One of JBL's Best

I've owned many JBL loudspeakers over the past 20 years and this is one of my favorites. I purchased the HDI-1600s in the walnut finish which looks great, especially given that all my other speakers have been finished in black. The sound reinforces my experience with previous JBLs - the bass weight and depth is very, very good, the midrange is lively and engaging and the treble is all there without being harsh. These speakers can be played impressively, and very cleanly loud, but need a good amplifier (I am using a good quality 2 channel receiver rated at 100 watts per side). Very highly recommended!

Pros: Great, clean bass Clear, dynamic midrange Good, fatigue-free, treble

Cons: None

JBL HDI-1600

Crutchfield customer from Mason, MI on 5/16/2021

These replaced 3 way full horn speakers and my wife couldn't be happier to have giant enclosures gone. Having horn tweeter I still enjoy the speed and lively sound. These have a much larger and deeper sound stage, and ironically go deeper by over an octave. Definitely require more than fractions of a watt, but when you crank it up they respond impressively. Regained half my living room back and superior performance, win - win in my world. Matching stands are stable, secure to speaker base with 4 integral threaded bolts and look attractive.

Pros: Sound quality and imaging Size Spl ability Integrated mounting Real wood veneer Matching stands

Cons: Purchased from outlet and wood color match is slightly different. Not noticeable unless your looking for difference. Only noticed during unboxing when setting next to each other.

At first I thought these speakers were too much for my taste. After breaking in, they are wonderful. The bass is excellent for a bookshelf. The vocals have an immediacy and presence that is palpable. I would describe these speakers as detailed without harshness and they have an attention capturing presence that is very gratifying. I'm a vocal guy and I love female and male voices on these speakers. After kicking round in the under $1000. market I took the leap and was richly rewarded.

These speakers have a full sound that fills up my entire room. I got these and the Dynaudio Evo2.0 and these sounds better for a little lesser price range.
