If you personally own a cineplex, or just a really big home theater, you've no doubt discovered that filling large spaces with high SPLs takes a lot of power.

Harman International is comprised of a great many companies, so it's no surprise that it took two CEDIA booths to hold 'em all. We took our trusty camera through the both of 'em to check out the latest from the likes of Infinity, JBL, H/K and Mark Levinson, and we spotted JBL's fresh LS Series, Inf

Infinity isn't the only Harman company bringing out wireless subs at CEDIA -- some tech is just destined to be shared between brands, and JBL's ES250PW and ES150PW subs bear a certain family resemblance to the Infinity offerings. The 2.4GHz wireless transmitters are dead ringers, and the cabinets d

It just wouldn't be CEDIA without an announcement from JBL, now would it? This year, the speaker giant is introducing a few newcomers to the minty fresh LS Series: the LS40 bookshelf, LS60 / LS80 floorstanders and the LS CENTER -- wait for it -- center channel.

It's not exactly the first to turn any old speakers into wireless ones, but any attempt to cut down on wire clutter is alright in our book, and JBL is now doing its part with its new On Air WEM-1 wireless expansion module. As you can see above, this one consists of a transmitter module that connect

Corner placement of your speakers can bring some serious challenges, which makes the design of JBL's new Control NOW speakers all the more interesting. The quarter-torus shape is designed to fit right into the nook between two perpendicular walls -- perfect for those rear surround channels. The spe

We know the Cannes Film Festival is all about the celebs, but we're pretty big fans of the gear, too. And in that department, it looks like Harman International has scored again this year. Four screening rooms in the Hotel Gray d'Albion will be graced by JBL Synthesis SK2-1000 speakers and S1S-EX su

If there's one thing you can count on at CES, it's the ridiculous number of iPod docks shoved into anything and everything -- but JBL's been in the iPod speaker game for so long we're willing to cut them a little slack. This year's lineup is pretty exhaustive, featuring everything from the no-dock
