A robust center channel speaker
The JBL HDI-4500 was designed to deliver clear, detailed dialogue, music, and sound effects. JBL has been developing brilliant speaker technology for decades, and they integrated that knowledge into this elegant center channel that comes in three beautiful finishes to complement just about any home decor.
Impressive compression driver
JBL uses horn-loaded compression drivers in speaker arrays for large concert venues — they fill space with clear sound in a way a standard dome tweeter can't. This same technology is used in the HDI-4500 center channel. That means you can enjoy crystal-clear, expansive sound. The driver is recessed in a waveguide, which ensures that detailed high frequencies are dispersed across a wide listening area.
A solid foundation for midrange and bass
This speaker's four 5-1/4" woofers are lightweight, rigid aluminum matrix cones. They feature a long-throw voice coil for high output and low distortion, serving up midrange detail and solid bass. The drivers are housed in an elegantly rounded cabinet made from thick MDF and heavily braced to eliminate sound-muddying vibrations.
Part of a voice-matched surround sound system
The HDI-4500 is voice-matched (and color-matched) to other speakers in JBL's HDI line, so you can build a surround sound system that looks and sounds amazing:
- JBL HDI-3600 or HDI-3800 floor-standing speakers for front left/right channels
- JBL HDI-1600 bookshelf speakers for rear/surround channels
- JBL HDI-1200 powered subwoofer
