Default JBL Power Series

Hi, Just wanted to start a thread to review the JBL power series. I see there have been a few installs of the componenets and thought it would be great for those who have used them or heard them to provide some feedback.

I heard front components in mshooli's Optra. I think its got a good full bodied sound and felt warmer than the 607C's.

The power series are really a great set of speakers. I have 4 P6560c components in my car - Team-BHP - The Definitive Indian Car Community
As the name says, this thing is one power hungry babe. If you are planning to buy one make sure that your budget includes an amp too. Otherwise you will be starving a horse and asking it to win the race.
But one thing is for sure that immaterial of you having an amp or otherwise, the quality of output from this one is really good. Even with my stock Alpine HU this baby can sweetly sing anything from Indian classical to Bollywood, Opera to death metal. I am just waiting to upgrade my HU and add an amp so that this baby can breathe.

Well i already hav an amp with a set of comps in front, but wanted to upgrade the fronts as they were being drowned out by the rear polks. Thanks buddy, would love to check out the set in your car sometime. I am very close to MG road for most of the day.

The Power series are very different sounding from the signature GTO sound of JBL. (well, even that has changed a bit)
But yes, as pointed out it would be very silly to buy JBL Power series speakers and not budget for an amplifier.

Sorry for the delay to your question Mav. Have been travelling and not had much time to go through the forums.

Yes, I have the JBL Power series in my car. Currently gone in only for the front components. It's the P6560c that I have powered by a JBL GT5-A604 amp. More details in my thread
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/sound-...ng-magnum.html

I do not remember the exact cost for the components but I think it was around 10K.

Well so I have also taken the plunge and changed over to the power series, P6560c for my front stage. The speakers cost me about 10k and were installed by our very own Blueraven. I must say that the whole setup seems to be changed and the speakers have managed to bump up the front stage, making it more prominent as a whole. I also would rate them as pretty "deep" or "warm" sounding, which goes with my taste. No cracking or loss of clarity even at high volumes, and the build quality is a few notches over anything else I have seen in JBL till date. Overall I would say a pretty good pair of speakers for what they cost.

Sam, looking forward to more such products from JBL and Infinity. I really did not have much to say about JBL speakers before using this pair. But this really made my day.

Like mshooli said, congratulations and welcome to the club.
I am happy that you are happy.

I like the new Power series too. Couple that with Satya's installation and I can imagine why you're happy.

Some of us (including me) often forget that Sam is not JBL (I guess those orange shorts confuse us).

Sam works for a company (Sahil Intl.) that represents JBL's (and it's parent Harman Intl) consumer products in India. I dont think he has a significant voice in determining which products Harman / JBL will make or discontinue.

Sam if the above statement is false, I will be paying you a visit with a box file full of ideas.
