JBL Stage A135C
Low-profile center channel speaker
Our take on the JBL Stage A135C by Crutchfield's Emily S.
Front-row sound in a slim package
When I was shopping for a center channel speaker for my system, I was frustrated by how big and boxy most of them were. I wanted crisp, clear dialogue, but I also wanted to be able to see the bottom half of my TV. If JBL's Stage A135C had existed at the time, it would have been on my short list of choices. Measuring just over 4” tall, the A135C is the perfect low-profile center channel to anchor your JBL Stage surround sound system.
If you prefer larger drivers in a taller, more traditional center channel enclosure, check out the JBL Stage A125C.
