3/4" titanium-laminate tweeters
The extremely thin but rigid titanium-laminate dome delivers accurate, undistorted high frequency response, even when the volume is way up. The end result is a full, clear, tight reproduction of high frequencies.

Proprietary JBL® EOS Waveguide technology realizes the sonic response of your listening environment and delivers intense, precise imaging. You get ideally balanced music. Crisp dialogue. Smooth audio distribution. Every seat is the best seat in your home theater.
Dual 3-1/2" midrange drivers with patented PolyPlas™
Your movies have rich, smooth, detailed sound. When it comes to the critical center channel, the CS480 steps up, using dual 3-1/2-inch midrange drivers reinforced with stiff, lightweight PolyPlas™ to make dialogue sound clear and natural.
8", 125-watt PolyPlas subwoofer
The JBL® CS480 creates bass with a powerful punch, using an 8-inch, 125-watt subwoofer. To increase rigidity, the CS480 uses a patented JBL PolyPlas™ driver. PolyPlas™ material is lightweight but strong, reproducing low frequencies effortlessly, with maximum impact.
FreeFlow™ bass reflex port
The FreeFlow™ bass reflex port has computer-optimized geometry to maximize tight, deep bass response while eliminating unwanted turbulence and noise. The result? A home theater system with true, wall-rattling bass that will make your music and movies even more exciting.
Accurate frequency response
Nothing is over- or under-emphasized. You get a true, full sound range from deep bass tones to ultra-high frequencies. The satellites have a frequency response of 110Hz to 20kHz, the center channel is 100Hz to 20kHz and the subwoofer is 110Hz to 20kHz.
Magnetically shielded for video proximity
Arrange the JBL® CS480 any way that makes sense. Components of this full, state-of-the-art JBL Cinema Sound system are magnetically shielded for placement on the floor wherever you want, including right near your TV or video display.
Sleek and stylish, looks great anywhere
The elegant JBL® CS480 Cinema Sound system looks at home in any listening environment. Everything has a high-gloss black finish; fixed and omnidirectional wall-mount brackets; and optional aluminum floor stands (sold separately) that hide all wires.
Legendary JBL® sound.
Even if you’ve never owned a JBL® product, you’ve almost certainly heard the JBL sound. It rings out loud and clear from the massive JBL loudspeaker arrays that hang in stadiums, sports arenas and outdoor concert venues everywhere. It literally surrounds you in more than 50 percent of all movie theaters worldwide, including many THX®-certified installations (a standard of realism that JBL engineers helped pioneer in 1983). Chances are, many of your favorite songs and movie soundtracks were mixed and mastered on JBL studio monitors – they’ve been the choice of audio professionals for more than 60 years. But you don’t have to venture far from home to experience the legendary power, clarity and technical accuracy of the JBL sound. It’s available in exceptional home entertainment systems that incorporate many of the same advanced technologies, materials and manufacturing techniques originally developed for our professional systems. It’s even available in lightweight, portable packages that you and your friends can enjoy anywhere.
