JBL offers its Arena 170 Floorstanding Loudspeaker for $79.95 shipped. Regularly up to $250, and still going for as much at Best Buy, Newegg has it for $100 and this is one of the best prices we’ve seen. If you’re building a home theater, these speakers are a must. With the large 7-inch high-output woofer, you’ll have deep room-shaking bass so every explosion feels like you’re there. Rated 4.4/5 stars.
