JBL CONTROL 23-1 Overview

Designed by JBL, these Control 23-1 loudspeakers are two-way 3" indoor/outdoor monitors featuring weather-protected circuitry, natural and powerful representations of the frequency spectrum, black enclosures, and JBL's proprietary InvisiBall mounting hardware. This hardware allows you to install the speakers through a hidden access point behind its logo badge. As such, the Control 23-1 suitable for venues, health clubs, theme parks, cafes, or anywhere where foreground/background music—and paging—is a necessity.

These monitors are capable of handling 100W of programmatic material at 8 Ohms, and feature a built-in multi-tap transformer for operation on distributed speaker lines. With an SPL of 103 dB, you can blast these speakers pretty loudly as well, while their cone geometry ensures a pleasurable listening experience in both on- and off-axis situations. Additionally, their PEI diaphragms render a smooth high-frequency response. But sound is not the only consideration: Kapton voice coil formers, JBL's WeatherEdge rubberized extensions, and a durable cabinet construction provide protection against heat, rain, wind, or anything else the elements might throw at you in the coming years.

Also, while the Control 23-1 comes in a black finish, it doesn't have to stay that way: these speakers accept a variety of finishes and pigments to match any surrounding.

Great speaker!

I purchased the JBL Control 23-1 speakers to replace some older bookshelf speakers that I had. These speakers sound great, when turned to a higher volume, especially with songs with low end frequencies and bass, there is a rattle/vibration, as if they are almost going to blow, however this can be fixed by turning down the bass. The speakers were very easy to mount on the wall. The speakers also look very good and don't stand out too much when mounted. Overall, a great product, I would definitely recommend these speakers for anyone in the market for a good pair of speakers.

Great sounding speakers (Even for 70 Volt)

Installed at a local restaurant... They sound great. Very good quality: They sound good, well built, not a cheap volume control like other manufacturers. Well packaged. You get what you pay for!

I was told these speakers can be daisy-chained ...

I was told these speakers can be daisy-chained together. Do these speakers have output?
Asked by: Jairus
Output power 100 watts at 8 ohms depending on your power amp you could daisy chain up to 4 speakers in one channel of you power amplifier. just keep in mind that the more speakers you add to a single 8 ohm speaker the impedance witll drop from each speaker demanding more power from power amp.8, 6, 4 &amp; 2 ohms on speakers when daisy chanied. this speaker is also 70volt compatible with a 70 volt system you can daisy chain as much speakers as you want but also depends on how much power the 70volt has amp has. Please call B&amp;H pro audio department for furhter questions of before purchasing so we can qualify you .
