Superb Sound and Performance With Dolby Atmos® Music

270 watts of 3.1 channel sound, with virtual Dolby Atmos® create a lifelike musical experience that makes you feel like you’re hearing your music live—right from the front row. Three 2.5mm tweeters and three 2.75” midrange woofers provide so much clarity that every detail of your favorite song sounds brand new, while a 6.5” down firing subwoofer and the patented SlipStream™ bass port extend the low end to a new level of bass that you can feel. Dolby Atmos® Music content is available from compatible streaming services in the JBL One app.

The JBL Authentics 500 delivers the iconic style inspired by classic JBL heritage designs, for a look that complements any room, easily filling even the largest space with superior JBL sound.
