Designed for both indoor and outdoor applications, the Control 28 is one of the largest of JBL's indoor/outdoor Control Contractor Series speakers. Ideal for theme park, health clubs, under balcony, parks and restaurants, the Control 28 is easily mounted and highly theft deterrent due to the unique InvisiBall mounting. InvisiBall adds the benefit of vertical rotation of up to 37° off-axis and horizontal rotation of up to 44° off-axis and all adjustments are made from behind the logo badge without having to remove the grill.

Weather resistance is maximized using zinc plated grills to resist rust, a polycarbonate tweeter reinforced with a thin film of titanium for added rigidity and protection against the sun, wind, rain and dust, using WeatherEdge, a seamless, rubberized extension of the woofer adding protection to critical transducer elements.

The Control 28 easily accepts any paint or finish

      Comments about JBL Control 28-WH Speaker - White (Pair):

      We have a pair mounted on the side walls close to the front of our chapel, which seats 85. We get excellent coverage of all frequencies, and the white finish blends nicely with the off-white walls. A good complement to a quality system.

        Just what I was looking for...

        By Lance

        from Seattle, WA

        Comments about JBL Control 28-WH Speaker - White (Pair):

        Please refer to my review of the same speaker but in black. The short version is given what they are (a speaker that splits the difference between audiophile grade speakers and pro sound speakers, and at moderate cost) and for their intended purpose/niche, they are pretty darn good speakers.If you're expecting pounding bass, get a sub. But that's true of all speakers in this class/range. If you want big bass out of smallish drivers you either get peakiness/bomminess/etc or large enough boxes that you might as well get a larger speaker overall (or both.)

        Expertise: Longtime part time pro sound guy and guitarist

        Problems Encountered: They required a burn in. They were harsh and nasally out of the box but burned in nicely, refer to my other review for the black version.
