    JBL Control 5 reviews

    Control 5 Compact Monitor - (Pair) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Real Deal I use these as the left and right front in my 7.1 home theater. Center front is two Control Ones in a series, and the rest are single Control Ones. Subwoofer is 15' 750 watt JBL. I replaced the Control Fives because after years of abuse the LF driver surrounds gave up. There is an LED that lights when the speakers are overdriven.I ignored it. Good professional studio monitor speakers. You will need mounts, and they ate pricey.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Second Pair in 20 years I bought my first set of Control 5's way back in 1991, using them as my primary monitors on many recordings over the years. Finally, a couple of years ago, the foam surrounds on the woofers gave out and were repaired with a kit, they worked great until a blast from a high-frequency note from a keyboard took out a tweeter, and while this has happened before and was easily replaced, I opted to buy another set. The fact that these monitors have not changed at all in over two decades speaks volumes of their reliability and versatility, not to mention accuracy. I was nearly full analog back in 1991, and have of course transitioned to full digital, and these monitors are an outstanding choice. As with any monitors, the trick is to protect them from accidental damage from stray signals with compression and/or limiters. Great for small to moderate room sizes. I don't have anything bad to say about them, any problems we experienced with them in the studio were caused by the people using them, and eventually, age. Great Product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good Excellent service from B&H, fast free delivery. Speakers are replacement for the same model that was 25 years old, very satisfied.
