Remember JBL's stylish Creature speakers? Here's one of their replacements, the JBL Spot.
Everything is a design statement these days, right? Including speakers - and JBL is kicking some serious designey hiney with two new sets of speakers, the Spot (above) and the Spyro (below).
Both speakers are 2.1 sets with small satellites and substantial subwoofers. Both have touch-sensitive volume controls, a separate control bass control on the back of the subwoofer, have six watts per channel of power for the satellites, 24 watts of power for the subwoofer, can reproduce a frequency range of 40Hz to 20KHz, and have a signal-to-noise ratio of >80db. They both cost $129.95 for the set.
The differences? Well, the Spot's satellites are cute li'l lumps, and the fullset comes with interchangeable black and white outer covers. Additional covers in different colors and patterns, however, are also available. The Spyro's satellites are odd little flowery thangs, and this set comes black, white, fuchsia, and something called "retro blue," all with chrome accents. Although the aforementioned Expo din makes it hard to evaluate speakers on the crowded show floor, the Spot and Spyro both sounded as if they had plenty of oomph.
Blobs (top)? Fleurs (above)? Your call - they both sound impressive.
