Each includes five speakers and an eight inch down-firing subwoofer.
The folks at JBL have announced the launch of two new home theater speaker systems - the Cinema 300 and the Cinema 500. Both come an eight inch subwoofer that looks more than a little like Darth Vader's helmet - this could be a plus or a minus, depending on your tastes.
The real difference between the two systems is in the speakers. The Cinema 300's satellite and center channel speakers offer a single three inch transducer for mids and a one inch transducer for highs. The Cinema 500 doubles up the midrange speakers on each for better overall sound and a 3dB sensitivity difference.
The Cinema 300 is available now at a price of $499, while the Cinema 500 can be had at a price of $699.
