JBL Control 322C overview

  • 1Description

The JBL Control 322C is a passive 12" coaxial ceiling speaker designed for voice amplification and foreground music reproduction in waiting rooms, offices, retail stores, and restaurants. When driven by an 8-Ohm power amplifier (available separately), this 2-way speaker provides a long-term power capacity of 400W (1600W peak). The Control 322C is equipped with a durable 12" Kevlar-reinforced cone and a medium-format compression driver, yielding an extended frequency response of 48 Hz to 19 kHz.

The cone, which also serves as a waveguide, results in reliable 90° broadband coverage while the built-in crossover network ensures proper frequency distribution to the speaker components. A removable locking connector with screw-down terminals ensures simple wiring for the input and loop output.

Coaxial ceiling speaker with pre-attached ported baffle
For use with 8-Ohm power amplifiers
Long-term power handling of 400W (1600W peak)
Durable 12" Kevlar-reinforced cone serves as a waveguide for high frequencies
Metal throat transitions smoothly to the horn to eliminate high-frequency beaming
High-temperature 3" voice coil
Medium-format compression driver features a radial slot phase plug for a smooth, extended high-frequency response, along with a neodymium magnet for low installation weight
Consistent 90° coverage on a broadband basis
Built-in crossover network with 18 dB/octave high-pass filter and 12 dB/octave low-pass filter
Integrated EZRail temporarily holds one side of the speaker baffle in place until the installer can affix the baffle to the backcan with screws
Removable multi-pin locking connector with secure screw-down terminals allows pre-wiring of inputs for easy clip-on convenience during installation
Compatible with MTC-300SG12 grille, and MTC-300BB12 backbox (both available separately)
