With 101 dB sensitivity, it’ll effortlessly reproduce the extended dynamic range in immersive digital soundtracks—loud and clear, exactly as intended.
  • More Coverage with Fewer Speakers - With an ultra-wide 100-degree horizontal dispersion and 80-degree vertical dispersion, the 8550 provides seamless coverage with fewer speakers than narrower models. It’s a cost-conscious way to bring premium JBL surround sound to your cinema.
  • Fast, Easy Installation and Maintenance - 8550s install quickly and easily, thanks to a convenient mounting design that uses JBL QuickMount™, Omnimount® or APC Multimount brackets.
