    I'm looking to replace a couple of JBL N32 floor standing speakers with some bookshelf speakers. I've been told it'd be a good idea to match the book shelves to my JBL S Center II center channel. Anyone have any info on what would be a good JBL book shelf model to pair with my S Center II? Currently running a 5.1 system in a small living room. 46 inch Samsung LED wall mounted with Center Channel under.

    Thanks in advance.

    You didn't mention a budget, but the following speakers will be close enough or exact match to the S-Center-II 1" Pure Titanium tweeter ...

    Thanks Phil! I went with the ES20 because of price only. If the L830's come down in the future I'd probably upgrade. But for now I'm pretty happy with the ES20's. Thanks again.
