As one of the popular brands, we were expecting something good from this brand’s product. However, the first impression was disappointing. The design is too plain. It’s just a box. There is no accent or special design to give it an artistic touch or something. JBL just cut the wood and make it into the speaker. But, if you see it as the minimalist or modern style that doesn’t’ require too much accent, that’s also not wrong.
As for performance, this is where this product shines. There are two reasons why it can produce good sound. first of all, is the HDI Waveguide and 1-inch Soft Dome Tweeter. HDI technology is one of the best innovations JBL ever made. It can separate the audio signal, so the other driver units can process it easily. This system produces better sound quality. Moreover, the tweeter it used also can produce clean and powerful high-frequency sound.
The other driver unit is the 5.5-inches woofer. This woofer is made of Polycellulose material, which can absorb the vibration from the bass frequency sound. Plus, it also can smooth the bass sound, which usually full of noise when you set the volume at high. This is the reason why many people love to use this speaker for gaming or watching a movie.
We also appreciate JBL that makes this speaker easy to use, by adding the wall-mounted area. this feature helps you to set it up easily, whether you put it on the table or mount it on your wall. moreover, the system configuration is also easy to use. you don’t need to spend more times to know how to use this speaker perfectly.
When you see the backside of JBL Arena B15, you can only see two ports for connecting this speaker to your device. It means that this speaker doesn’t have the in-built power system. So, if you want to use this speaker, you need to use an amplifier, EQ or receiver.
One last thing you must know is the size. JBL Arena B15 is one of the largest and heaviest speakers in our life. The size itself is 8.6 x 18.5 x 16.5 inches. As for the weight of this product is 17.42 lbs.
