The Cinema 510 and the Cinema 610 offer 5.1 speaker packages with affordable prices.

JBL has detailed two new 5.1 speaker systems, the Cinema 510 and the Cinema 610. Designed for convenient plug-and-play use, the compact speakers offer an easy to install surround sound option that won't take up too much floor-space.

The Cinema 610 features five voice-matching satellites including a dedicated horizontal center channel with dual 3-inch woofers and 0.5-inch tweeters. An 8-inch Bass Reflex 60W subwoofer is also included. The frequency response for the speaker system is rated at 38Hz–20kHz.

The Cinema 510 also has five voice-matching satellites but lacks a dedicated horizontal center channel. The speakers feature 3-inch drivers and also come paired with a 6.5-inch 60W subwoofer. The frequency response is 46Hz–20kHz .

With a suggested retail price of $399.95, the Cinema 610 is now available. Meanwhile, the Cinema 510 is up for preorder for an October 25 release at a suggested retail price of $299.95.
