JBL Professional - SCS8 - Spatially Cued Surround Loudspeakers (Pair)

$1,250 AUD (Pair)

Mint condition. I imported 8 of these speakers from the USA for my home theater. Two of these are for sale as they are not fit for purpose as side surrounds in my room, the outside seats are too close to the wall and will alternatively use bipoles in those locations. These are an amazing full range surround/atmos speaker that has a huge 120 deg radiation pattern with great off axis performance. Very hard to get hold of in Aus. If someone needs a second pair, I may consider selling another set and swap out my rear channels to something else. The atmos speakers however will not be sold.

Price includes brackets and orignal mounting hardware.

Shame you're not in the UK as I'm after some ! Are you not using on L&R as they are too 'close' to the ear, have you gone for something more 'defuse' ?

Yes I have moved to infinity RS152’s for both side and rear surrounds. They are much better suited to the job in my smaller room, which is 4m wide, and are not like a point source as the SCS8’s were at the same location. Once I add some hybrid diffusers to the room, as planned, I think it will be even better.

I have retained the other 4 SCS8’s for atmos and are working well.

What does "Spatially Cued" mean?

Oddly enough. I'm looking at going up to a 9.x.6 or 11.x.8 in a small ( 3.8m x 5m ) room. Perhaps the increased speaker count and Atmos set up with work. But your concern was mine with the speakers L & R of MLP and had considered more radiating speakers ( Tripole ) to minimise the direct sound. Alas being UK based I would not be able to assist with the sale. But from my research anyone buying these would be VERY happy with them. If you want to chat off-line it would be nice to know your additional thoughts on these... ( I will be running JBL 3677's LCR ).
