About the JBL Stage A130
Rich sound from compact speakers
Rich sound from compact speakers
Planning a new two-channel system or small-footprint home theater? Consider the JBL Stage A130. It's one of the smallest speakers in JBL's new lineup, but it benefits from the company's long and rich history of making speakers.
JBL paid particular attention to the design of the enclosure on these speakers, aiming to craft a non-resonant cabinet with rigid walls and internal bracing so that you hear your content as it was intended to be heard.
Expertly built drivers
The 1" aluminum dome tweeter is mounted in an HDI (High Definition Imaging) waveguide that was designed for the JBL Professional M2 Master Reference Monitor. This flared shape helps smooth the transition from woofer to tweeter for a broad sweet spot and clear high-frequency detail.
Each speaker's striking white 5-1/4" woofer is made of a stiff, but lightweight polycellulose material to deliver solid bass for its size. A rear-panel port reinforces bass performance.
