OWNER'S manual Loudspeakers for JBL Arena 170 




We have designed the Arena 120 speakers to mount directly onto a wall. Each speaker has two keyholes on the back and will require two 1-1/2” (38mm), #10 wood screws fastened to a wall stud. If a wall stud is unavailable, install an anchor appropriate for a 1-1/2”, #10 screw.

NOTE: You are responsible for the correct selection and use of mounting hardware (available through hardware stores) that will ensure the proper and safe wall-mounting of the speakers.

  1. Using the included wall template, mark the positions on the wall where you would like to place the mounting screws.
  2. Fasten two 1-1/2” (38mm), #10 wood screws to the wall using the markings from Step 1 as your guide. Leave an 1/16” (1.59mm) space between the wall and screwhead. If a wall stud is not available, use an appropriate anchor.
  3. To protect wall, attach 4 rubber cushions (included) in suggested locations.
  4. Place the speaker on the wall by aligning the keyholes on the back of the speaker to the screwheads on the wall. Once positioned properly, the speaker should slide down slightly and become secure.


  • When you use these speakers as surround-channel speakers in a 5.1-channel system, place them slightly behind the listening position, facing each other. Ideally, they should be 5 – 6 feet (1.5m – 1.8m) above the floor. An alternate location would be on a wall behind the listening position, facing forward. The surround speakers should not call attention to themselves while they’re playing. Experiment with their placement until you hear a diffuse, ambient sound accompanying the sounds that you hear from the front left, front right and center speakers.
  • If you are using the Arena 130 bookshelf as a wall-mounted surround solution, be sure not to block the rear port opening
