JBL Control 26C overview

  • 1Description

The JBL Control 26C is a coaxial 2-way ceiling installation speaker with a 6.5" woofer and .75" titanium-coated tweeter, featuring a high output, extended frequency reproduction, and a 110° coverage angle, designed in support of background or foreground music applications for hotels, casinos, bars, restaurants and theme park pavilions.

The Control 26C is a 16 Ohm speaker, equipped with a loop-thru output connector for parallel expansion and voiding the need for use of a distributed system, which, in conjunction with the speakers' wide coverage and high output, allows for fewer speakers to be installed to achieve a good sound, and lowers installation costs.

    JBL Control 26C reviews

    Control 26C Ceiling Speaker - Pair is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing speakers for installed sound system! I used these speakers with JBL 19cs subwoofers for a weight room facility sound system. The total system consisted of 6 - 26c speakers and 4 - 19cs subwoofers. Wiring is made easy with the removable terminal blocks and passthrough wiring. Basically each speaker connects to each other in a line. This installation method reduces cost for speaker wire and labor involved with running extra wire. The terminal blocks have 4 wire holes. For the first speaker in the line will use holes 2 & 3 for the line connecting to the amplifier. Then a wire is ran from speaker 1 to speaker 2. Holes 1 & 4 from speaker 1 connects to holes 2 & 3 on speaker 2. This continues for the entire line. Be sure to properly power these speakers. Both the 19cs and 26c need 140 watts of power. In our installation we used 2 amplifiers splitting the system into left and right sides of the room. Since each amp had 2 outputs of 500 watts for each channel. This provided some headroom for the speakers. On both amps output 1 was was the high and output 2 was the low. Output 1 had 3 26c speakers and output 2 had 2 19cs subwoofers. These amplifiers had a built in crossover feature that splits the signal into high and low frequences which is essential for installing a system like this. A xlr splitter was used to convert the output from the mixer (1 xlr) to inputs for both amps (2 xlr). A cutout template is provided for cutting ceiling tiles. Once tiles are put back in the ceiling the installation can be done without access into the ceiling. The speaker is designed to push up through the cutout in the ceiling tile and clamps down to the C bracket (included). Make sure to have someone assist with installing, these can be insalled with one person but can be difficult for one person to lift, attach wires, put into place, and screw down holders. Overall these speakers work as expected and would buy again. They install nicely and end product looks professional. Nothing less to be expected from JBL.
