JBL Arena 8IW - In-Wall Loudspeaker with 8" Woofer

Floor to ceiling, JBL Arena architectural series speakers are engineered for full sound dispersion to fill the room - no matter where installed. Specially designed with a nearly invisible zero-bezel, fully paintable magnetic grill, the JBL Arena speakers blend into any home environment. The JBL proprietary HDI waveguide allows the loudspeaker to fill the room in cinema-quality, full-immersion sound from any location - even high elevations or off-axis listening locations. The JBL Arena is ready for integration into any home audio or theatre system, with a sturdy, reliable design including an XL-2 bracket suitable for mounting in any wall or ceiling up to 2” thick. Expertly designed, the series is matched to the award-winning JBL Arena component speakers for a complete home audio experience. It will leave you wondering how such spectacular sound seems to come out of nowhere.
