JBL has launched eight models in its Arena series. In this article, we are reviewing JBL arena 120 which is the smallest in the series with some of the unusual proportions. The product has been tested on all of the parameters to conclude whether they worth the money or not. This JBL arena review will help you to make the right decision for your money.

It has the nice built quality and wall mounted features are an added value. It could be said to be small bookshelf speakers with specific dimensions. It has rounded its front portion to provide a classic matte finish. JBL arena comes with a user manual, mounting templates, and rubber cushions.  On connecting the speaker we found that it has the authentic and natural sound for low range and jazz.

The room range covers by the speaker were quite large. We moved to the music with a focus to bass sound and we are really pleased to a large extent. Even solid drum beat or bass guitar all sounds great. The midrange also has the same experience, pleasant and clean. The higher frequency is something where you feel a little bit withdrawn, though they are clear enough. And with aggressive music, you will definitely feel something is missing. So if you can ignore these minor drawbacks these are the best speaker to sound.

It is an integrated wall mount solution with a flexible installation system that works both as a bookshelf and surrounds sound speakers. It has a height of 13-7/16 inches and a width of 7-13/32 inches. It has a really good black and white finish with poly cellulose fillers.
