Arena 120 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great as rear speakers. I just got these open box at best buy for $100 for the pair. Now I had already bought the Studio 230 which are A plus.. This pair handles the 4 and 5 slot on my side couch tables.. Not quite enough speaker here to fill a room alone. But paired with some good front ones these provide crisp music and movie details from the recording studio. I prefer these over all the little wireless ones getting all the attention

Couldn't hook my phone up to this using an aux cord? I'm looking for a speaker like this for my room.

Asked by: Breckin22
You will need a receiver in order to get these speakers working. If you are looking for an speaker that can play using an aux cord. Please check on our portable speakers at https://www.jbl.com/bluetooth-speakers/

What is the difference between this speaker, the Arena 120, and the Arena B15? They appear to be the same product with some cosmetic differences with the grill and/or the Logo.

Asked by: Tkleinster
Hi! The Arena B15 speakers are basically the same as our ARENA 120 speakers. The name is a bit different exclusively for some of our authorized retailers.

What is the difference between these speakers and the Arena B15? Will these speakers work well as rear surrounds with a pair of Northridge E50 front and an E35c center? All speakers are driven with 100 watts @8 ohms.

Asked by: Tkleinster
Yes, These would work well with our other speakers. You can set them as rear surround so they can support your Northridge E50 and E35C.

What is the max watts they can handle? Also between these & the JBL Control X which is better? I have a Harman Kardon AVR1700 I was going to use for center the JBL Arena 125 C & the the Sub JBL Arena Sub 100P.

Asked by: Scott305
The JBL Arena 120 and the Control X both can handle up to a 100W of amplification. The main difference is that the Control X are made for outdoor use at all weather conditions. The Arena however are made for indoor use and is a great match with the Arena 125C and Sub100P.

Could you connect your phone into this with a cord of some sort like and aux cord?

Asked by: Breckin22
Unfortunately, you can directly connect your phone to this speaker with a cord or wirelessly. You need to connect this speaker (preferably a pair) to an amp or receiver, then connect your phone to the amp or receiver.

Vad connnectar man dem med? en 3.5 mm ?

Asked by: Anonym121
Arena 120 är passiva högtalare som du måste ansluta till en förstärkare eller mottagare med högtalarkablar. Det är inte möjligt att koppla dessa direkt till din telefon/surfplatta.

Do the 120s require a break in period? Do they work well as main speakers in a 2.0 setup?  I don't want the 130s as they are rear ported.  Thank.
