Complete, optimized 5.1-channel system

The JBL Cinema 300 home theatre speaker system delivers the full impact of a movie by immersing you in the action with four surround-sound satellite speakers, a dedicated centre-channel speaker and an omnidirectional, powered subwoofer. All of these components are engineered to work together and make your experience sound as epic as the action on the screen.

150-watt powered subwoofer

150-watt powered subwoofer

Realistic, high-impact bass is the not-so-secret key to movie excitement. The JBL Cinema 300’s subwoofer features a fast-moving, 8-inch (200-millimetre) woofer and 150 watts of amplification for clean, lifelike bass. Subwoofer phase, level and bass-boost controls permit easy tuning of bass performance to suit room acoustics and your personal preferences, and line-level and LFE (low-frequency effects) subwoofer inputs ensure noise-free connections to virtually any audio/video receiver.

Voice-matched satellite and centre speakers

Voice-matched satellite and centre speakers

The Cinema 300’s four identical satellite speakers are voice-matched to the centre speaker to ensure that sound remains consistent as it moves from speaker to speaker. This technology enables the Cinema 300 to create 360-degree surround-sound environments that create the experience of being in the settings portrayed on the screen.

Dual-midrange centre speaker

Dual-midrange centre speaker

Dual-midrange drivers used within the Cinema 300’s most prominent speaker let you crank up the volume without distortion. Playback levels can get much louder without losing centre-channel distinction or allowing any disruptive bleeding of the sound mix.

Down-firing bass driver

Down-firing bass driver

A down-firing bass driver prevents a subwoofer’s sound output from interacting with nearby walls, causing unwanted reflections and muddying the sound. Instead, the Cinema 300’s subwoofer interacts principally with your listening room’s floor, delivering a world of bass that delights the senses.

Dynamic JBL Weave design
