Superb sound and performance with Dolby Atmos® Music

270 watts of 3.1 channel sound, with virtual Dolby Atmos® create a lifelike musical experience that makes you feel like you're hearing your music live. Three 1-inch tweeters and three 2.75-inch midrange woofers provide so much clarity that every detail of your favorite song sounds brand new, while a 6.5-inch down firing subwoofer and the patented SlipStream™ bass port guarantee incredible deep bass.


Inspired by retro design

The JBL Authentics 500 delivers the iconic style inspired by classic JBL heritage designs, for a look that complements any room, easily filling even the largest space with superior JBL sound. And the speaker's premium aluminum frame, custom leather-like enclosure, and reimagined Quadrex grille really show the attention we paid to each visual detail, right down to the special JBL signature pattern surrounding the downfiring woofer.
