With the JBL Arena 170 floorstanding loudspeaker, a true theater experience never felt so affordable – or close to home. The loudspeaker's High Definition Imaging (HDI) waveguide and 1-inch (25mm) soft dome tweeter, along with a 7” (178mm) polycellulose woofer deliver sensational power and precision that is able to produce accurate highs and lows. And no wonder: the Arena 170 is inspired by our own M2 Master Reference Monitor, considered by many to be the finest studio monitor on the market. The Arena 170 won't let you down when it comes to delivering affordable, crisp, dynamic, and accurate sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Valu I purchased the Arena 170 a month ago and I will spare everyone the "I can now hear things I never heard before..." review. I am by no means an audiophile in the sense that my ears are trained for critical review. Yet when I heard these and I have been playing my music constantly, I received genuine goosebumps. I purchased these for the price thinking if they weren't any good I could return them. I'm keeping these because they look sharp in my living room, sound great and they make me happy. Excellent value and I wholeheartedly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good speakers at a great price We made the purchase when these Area 170 speakers were on a steep sale and felt it was a very good decision. The set up was very simple (either direct wire or use some banana plugs) and the aesthetics are impressive. Because the black ones were out of stock, we went ahead and bought the white ones. Boy, are they clean looking! The sound is adequate because we don't have an integrated sub, and that will be added at a later time. Overall, for the price we paid ($80/ea), these can't be beaten!

Would these work well with a Marantz 2275 receiver? or any other suggestions. Thanks

Asked by: Kempton55
Marantz 2275 is a rock solid amp! These little speakers will deliver and wake up your amp. I have a 65 watts per channel tube amp. I bought these arena 170. What a perfect match! I have the clarities on high and surprisingly the bass is phenomenal for a small 6 inch woofer. Its the way how the engineered and design the box that puts up that much music. Another follow-up, I bought a JBL studio 280 3-way speakers. Similar to this and same wattage. I have both of them for 5 years and the Arena 7 years now. Honestly I chose the arena 170 for my amp. Nothing better or best but the arena 170 is a match made in heaven for my amp! Well just call it like this. No need for me to put a subwoofer on my amp.

Will these work with Yamaha TSR 7850. Planning to buy for rear.

Asked by: VenkatDonepudi
Hi! Unfortunately, we do not have information about the Yamaha TSR 7850 receiver. However, the Arena 170 can handle from 20-200W of power at 8 ohms. As long as the receiver is within that wattage and ohm range, it will be compatible.

Hello, Im using these with my Pioneer Elite SC-63 receiver. I have 2 in the front and two in the rear. Im also using the Arena center 125C. Are they a good match with this receiver? Thanks, Mike

Asked by: Mike1976
Hi Mike. The Arena 170 Floor-standing speakers and the Arena 125C Center speaker are well matched with your Pioneer Elite SC-63 receiver. The speakers are rated at 8 ohms for their nominal impedance and your receiver is rated to output 125 watts at 8 ohms which is within the recommended amplifier power for the speakers. Should you have further concerns about your set-up, please feel free to contact us directly by submitting a case request at https://www.jbl.com/support-contact.html and the Customer Service Team will be more than happy to assist you. Thank you.

Will the Arena 170 work great with Harman Kardon HK 3770 receiver?

Asked by: Tooter
Hi! The Arena 170 will work with the receiver but you should not crank it all the way up because it could blow the speaker. The HK3770 is really powerful which gives out 240W on 2 channel Stereo.
