JBL engineers have pioneered the art of bringing world-class sound to audiences for decades. Now, with the Arena 180 floorstanding loudspeaker, they've brought the same amazing experience to your home at a price that won't burn a hole in your wallet. The Arena 180’s High Definition Imaging (HDI) waveguide and 1-inch (25mm) soft dome tweeter, along with two 7” (178mm) polycellulose woofers provide the accurate sound intended by top artists and engineers. Inspired by JBL's own M2 Master Reference Monitor, considered by many to be the world’s finest studio monitor, the Arena 180 is a win-win for both legacy and affordability.
