JBL Control 29AV-1 overview

  • 1Description

The black JBL Control 29AV-1 is a passive 8" shielded loudspeaker with a low-saturation transformer designed for voice amplification and foreground music reproduction in a variety of indoor and outdoor venues. The 110W transformer allows the Control 29AV-1 to be driven by 70V, 100V, or 8-Ohm power amplifiers (available separately). Each Control 29AV-1 is equipped with a durable 8" Kevlar-cone woofer and a 1" titanium-diaphragm compression driver, yielding a frequency response of 43 Hz to 15 kHz, and a continuous program power capacity of 300W. With a rotatable horn, the loudspeaker supports positioning for horizontal or vertical orientation.

The built-in crossover network ensures proper frequency distribution to the speaker components as well as smooth tone. SonicGuard circuitry protects against damage incurred through overloading without compromising sound quality. The screw-down terminal strip enables simple wiring, and utilizes nickel/zinc terminals for enhanced resistance to rust. The supplied InvisiBall mounting system and input panel cover contributes to ease of installation. Thanks to judicious magnetic shielding, the Control 29AV-1 may be placed as close as 9" to video monitors.

    JBL Control 29AV-1 reviews

    Control 29AV-1 8" 2-Way 300W Indoor/Outdoor Loudspeaker (Single, Black) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clean and loud ... and built to last I installed the speaker on a high school softball field shooting over the spectators and onto the field so the players can hear their music and such. The C29AV sounds excellent, even 225 feet away in the outfield. It is directional enough to protect what's to the sides. Although it is rated for 300w, I'm using a 200w Samson S63 and the C29AV distorts the low end a little at full power. Mounting is simple and effective. I have 2 others installed elsewhere that withstood a tornado!
