Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome just awesome! These speakers rock! Bought them over many higher priced speakers and couldn't be happier! Great sound! The bass, the highs and lows, the pure sound is tremendous. Connected them with a Sonos amp and I'm blown away how great they sound. I have lots of friends with outdoor speakers and these sound so much better than ALL of theirs. I would recommend these to everyone! JBL never fails!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is for the Control One outdoor speakers I've had these speakers for two years and they ROCK! Great highs, but my favorite thing about JBL speakers is the LOWS! Just wonderful response and clarity. We use them almost every day in the summer and most days in the winter. No rust on speaker grills or dry rotting to be seen. LOVE THEM!

Dispersion angle are usually calculated on high-end and professional speakers, which the Control Xs are not. The Control X are great wall-mountable all-weather speaker which will perform great if placed facing towards the listening position.

what is this speakers weather/water rating i plan to purchase speakers to put on my front porch which is not covered very well. how resistant is it to snow and rain?

Asked by: Jeff2794
These are all-weather speakers, but not waterproof speakers. They can survive outdoors nicely, but cannot be directly exposed to the elements (sun, rain, snow). So, when installing these outdoors, you will need to put them under an eaves, or in a place where the elements will not hit them directly.
