Studio 580 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Vocal After 30 years in the audio business, with a past history of the famed Altec 19 speakers, I can truthfully say that these are probably the most accurate sounding speakers I have ever owned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speaker bought this on sale for $450 Thought it would be to small for what I wanted. turns out I was pleasantly surprised on how large the sound stage was on this speaker for only having 6 inch Drivers. Great deal for the price on sale. Decided to trade up to the 590 speakers when thy went on sale, didn't think there would be much difference. Boy what a difference in size and scale and sound stage was larger than most speakers that I have herd. great speaker for the money when on sale, you won't be disappointed. I know I wasn't.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love love love these speakers!! Absolutely love these speakers, the sound is incredibe! I cannot fathom why JBL would discontinue the studio 500 series...I’m quite upset I can’t get matching 530s for surround after hearing these :’( (I’m now seriously considering dropping over a grand for a pair of 530s off eBay these 580s are so good...) So definitely buy these while you still can!!

Can you hook this up straight to a tv?

Asked by: Jumbo_Sound
The JBL Studio 580 cannot be hooked up straight to a TV. You would need to hook this speaker up to a receiver or an amplifier so it can modify the different configurations for the speakers; this amp or receiver would then be hooked up to your TV for these speakers to work.

How do these compare to the Studio 290s? Besides the woofer size, are they comparable towers in performance?

Asked by: Mattys21
Both units are very similar, but the notably the Studio 290's impedance is 8 ohms while the Studio 580's impedance is 6ohms, while the Studio 590 can handle up to a 225W amp while the Studio 580 can only handle up to a 200W amp.

I noticed that the impedance on these speakers is 6 ohms. Will it work with my system of 8ohm speakers if they have there own amp?

What would be good matching Rear speakers for these being in front? Any suggestion for in well, in celling and bookshelf speakers? for this?

Asked by: LAguy
The JBL Studio 530 would be a perfect match as rear speakers for the 580 or 590. The Studio 530 is a brilliant speaker in it's own right but I believe they may have been discontinued

I am considering these or the 590's, they will be set up beside my 70" Led TV, seating distance is about 8 feet. Goldilocks question ... too big? ... too small? ... or just right? I haven't bought a receiver yet, waiting to see what the speaker set up is.

Asked by: AndyE3B
These speakers are perfect when you have a big TV. This would really make you have a home theater feel to it.
