JBL Arena 6IC 6.5" Premium Stereo In-Ceiling Loudspeaker Overview

The JBL Arena 6IC 6.5" Premium Stereo In-Ceiling Loudspeaker characterizes the highest quality in in-ceiling speakers. It features a discreet design that will go unnoticed until the speaker's cinema-quality, full-immersion sound fills the room. The loudspeaker’s pivoting tweeter lets you target audio directly to the desired location, and it delivers fine-tune tweeter frequencies to offset acoustical room conditions. An on-board High Definition Imaging (HDI) waveguide provides incredible sound that fills any room – even high elevations or off-axis listening spots. Crafted for versatility, the home ceiling speaker features an almost invisible, paintable bezel-free profile that merges with any setting and décor. The sturdy, reliable audio speaker is designed for installation in any wall or ceiling up to 2 inches thick. The on-ceiling speaker matches JBL’s award-winning component loudspeakers and is ready to enhance your home theater setup.

Arena 61C: Great speaker for Home Theater System!
I purchased two Arena 61C speakers to be used as ceiling speakers for my home theater system upgrade. Great packaging to prevent shipping damage, detailed installation instructions, and nice mounting hardware for retrofit installations. I also contacted customer support for speaker location/orientation recommendations and received all necessary information promptly by email :

Great Speakers!
I bought 4 of these speakers and I am so happy with them. They have good, strong bass and great treble as well. The magnetic grill is very easy to remove and even easier to put back on. Overall these are a great buy and I would definitely recommend them.

Bought 4 of these for a client who was upgrading a Media Room. Used them as fronts & rears in a 5.1 surround sound system. I was amazed at how great they sound & look installed. The client was skeptical of in-ceilings for a surround sound system before he heard these. Not only did these speakers change his mind, but now he wants to upgrade all of his other speakers to JBL. Strong works JBL!!!
