JBL has a pair of new speakers for the masses - the JBL Control NOW indoor and JBL Control NOW AW outdoor loudspeakers that cater for home, multiroom, architectural and additional applications. Both of them will feature a unique quarter-round shape that offers unprecedented installation possibilities, and incorporate innovative technologies to deliver clear and evenly distributed sound.
The loudspeakers’ curved shape enables them to be placed virtually anywhere. They can be corner-mounted between a ceiling and wall or between two walls, or placed either horizontally or vertically on a shelf. JBL Control NOW speakers can be joined to create half-round, three-quarter-round, or round configurations, and hung from a ceiling using an optional pole-mount bracket and standard ceiling-fan hardware. JBL Control NOW and JBL Control NOW AW loudspeakers deliver outstanding sound quality even in less-than-optimal acoustic situations. Both feature a tweeter mounted in a JBL® Bi-Radial® horn that is optimized to provide smooth frequency response in any mounting configuration. The tweeter is complemented by dual 4-inch woofers that are computer-designed to deliver high output with minimal distortion. The loudspeakers’ enclosures are made from a high-strength composite material for maximum sonic clarity and durability.
You can pick up the JBL Control NOW loudspeakers for $249 each, while the JBL Control NOW AW will retail for $279 each when it arrives later this month.
