JBL vs Bose both of these speakers are mainly for commercial use given their enclosures and the 70V tap which allows for longer wire distances to be use. (Think high voltage electrical wires going through the desert, then transformers dropping down the voltage to household use 120v)

Neither one would be suitable for home audio use as the sound quality would rival “elevator music”, which is in actuality their intended use. 😉

Based on the cost factor between the two, actually the Bose would be the better bet value wise although it’s index of tech is slightly lower than the JBL (60 vs. 64.5)
