User Guide for JBL Studio 290

Table of Contents



CAUTION: Make sure that all of the system's electrical components are turned OFF (and preferably unplugged from their AC outlets) before making any connections.

Speakers and amplifiers have corresponding positive and negative (+ and ) connection terminals. All Studio 2 series speakers have connection terminals that are marked + and on the terminal-cup assembly. Additionally, the "+" terminals have red markings, while the terminals have black markings.

To ensure proper polarity, connect each "+" terminal on the back of the amplifier or receiver to the respective "+" (red) terminal on each speaker. Connect the "terminals in a similar way. Do not reverse polarities (i.e. "+toorto +) when making connections. Doing so will cause poor stereo imaging and diminished bass performance.

IMPORTANT: Make sure the (+) and (-) wires or connectors do not touch each other or the other terminal. Touching wires can cause a short circuit that can damage your receiver or amplifier.

BASIC SINGLE-WIRE CONNECTION Connect the amplifier to each speaker as shown in the illustration below.

BI-WIRE CONNECTION For the Studio 290/280/270 speakers, you can use either set of terminals on the connector panel.

IMPORTANT: Do not remove the metal jumpers from between the two sets of terminals when connecting the speaker wires


The Studio 290/280/270 connection assemblies have two sets of input terminals that are connected by metal jumper bars. The upper set of terminals is for the midrange/tweeter, and the lower set of terminals is for the woofer(s). This arrangement allows you to bi-wire the speakers using a single stereo amplifier or using two stereo amplifiers. Bi-wiring can offer sonic advantages and more flexibility in power-amplifier selection over a conventional single-wir

JBL STUDIO 290 Questions and Answers

The specs mention Bi-Wire Capabilities. Can the speakers be setup in a Bi-Amp configuration? I have read about Bi-Wiring and it looks does not really make any audible difference, nor any additional control apart from maybe varying the ohms to the amp.
Bi-wiring allows two benefits. You can separate the load of mids and highs to one amplifier and lows to another. Or you can increase the output from a single amplifier by increasing the load by reducing the resistance (ohms). For example, bi-wiring a pair of 8 ohm speakers to a single amp will be as if you are running four 8 ohm speakers from that amp, making the resistance on the amp down to 4 ohms. Most amps provide about 50% more power when this is done, but it is more load (work) on the amp.

my listening room is 9X16X18. would the Studio 290's be too big? the wall behind my head is only 3' high and open to the kitchen.
The Studio 290's should be able to fill the room quite nicely provided that the receiver you have them connected to would have enough to drive the speakers accordingly.

Can any one please tell me which sub would be suitable with Studio 290 ? How about Stage A120P ? or anything else ?
Our JBL Stage A120P would match your existing JBL Studio 290 as it has 250W RMS that could keep up with the Front speakers. The general rule is that the powered subwoofer should have at least twice the power per channel of your amp/receiver.
