Product Features
25 – 240 watts suggested amplifier power range
JBL engineers designed the Control Monitor loudspeaker to produce accurate, full-range sound from a receiver or amplifier capable of delivering up to 240 watts of power.
Two-way speaker configuration
They’re low profile at just 10 inches high, 6.63 inches wide and 8.5 inches deep. Yet the two-way speaker design and quality cones reproduce a wide range of frequencies for realistic, room-filling, can’t-believe-your-ears imaging.
Proprietary 5” PolyPlas™ woofer
Stiffer cones deliver more uniform pistonic motion for deeper, tighter bass and improved midranges. The PolyPlas™ woofer gives maximum impact to JBL® audio, along with a 1.5-inch voice coil. You’ll experience serious, feel-it-in-your-bones bass.
Elliptical Oblate Spheroidal™ (EOS) Waveguides
Elliptical Oblate Spheroidal™ (EOS) waveguides, originally developed for JBL® Pro LSR studio monitors, disperse clean, high frequency sound more precisely across a wider listening area. There’s no “sweet spot.” Sit wherever you want.
Wide, accurate frequency response
With the 1-inch soft dome tweeter and PolyPlas™ woofer, what you hear is true. Delivering a frequency response of 50Hz to 40kHz, JBL® Control® Monitor speakers reproduce the full range of sound from deep bass tones to ultra-high frequencies. Nothing is over- or underemphasized.
Outstanding audio output
These speakers feature 240W peak power, 2400Hz crossover frequency and 87dB sensitivity. You get distortion-free reproduction of your favorite music, even at high volumes. You have fun.
Magnetically shielded for video proximity
Put the JBL® Control® Monitor anywhere that makes sense in your home theater set-up. The speakers are magnetically shielded for placement on the floor or wherever you want them, including right near your TV or video display.
