JBL Control One Rugged 2-Way 100mm : We like these a lot!

Great compact speaker, significantly enhanced by some uncomplicated mods and thorough mounting. I have experienced two pairs of these for a pair of many years, utilised with smsl tripath amplifiers. One pair is my desk made use of with web-computer radio and one in my bed room with a creek t40 fm tuner. Superior clarity and extremely able as nearfield monitors. There is a little bit of cabinet resonance very easily defeat by lining the cabinets with antiresonant content these types of as silentcoat, requires ten minutes and a 3mm allen essential. Mounting i find very best on smooth rubber toes which additional controls minor bass growth. I would assume wall mounting also to do the job perfectly to keep away from furniture resonance. My musical eating plan is mostly jazz classical and bbc r4 and am not at all disappointed. I was adequately impressed to invest in the next pair.

A gem of a speaker, very impressed:.

Fantastic but may perhaps need to have some eqing. Just after reading the stellar assessments of these speakers i decided to buy them to change the satellite speakers on my logitech z-2300 technique. At first i assumed that they sounded a little bit boring, but right after shifting the eq settings they actually appear alive. I think that this could be additional since of the z-2300 remaining preset for the included satellites, while. Audio is remarkably crystal clear with all tunes sounding great. I am truly listening to matters in songs that i by no means listened to right before. I am employing them with the z-2300 subwoofer so bass output is not an problem, but even applied on their personal they have far more than anticipated ‘punch’ to bass. I essentially find it challenging to imagine that speakers this sizing deliver so a great deal low close. That claimed, they might be lacking if your musical tastes encompass dubstep, rap, or equivalent new music with a large amount of ‘drawn-out’ bass. In general an great acquire, i compensated £60 for the pair but would have fortunately paid a lot more, unbeatable for this sizing and selling price in my view.

Purchased on recommendation of a friend, these speakers are great benefit for money, great for a circumstance wherever space is restricted.

We have two pairs of these, one in our garage and an additional in the examine. Great for songs and film use. Simple to pair with an amp and really sensitive. Never anticipate earth-shaking bass or a reference audio encounter, but for a little something sturdy for just about every day or track record use they do the work. Glance all over in general public installations, pubs, clubs and concert halls and you will see how excellent they are.

I purchased these speakers to participate in a broad wide variety of songs genres via in a lounge. I was a little concerned that their tiny dimension would avoid them from performing the task sufficiently. The quality is exceptional for the cost. They are one/five the value of my ‘best’ speakers but they are certainly not one/five of the high-quality. Speaker technological innovation has definitely occur on above the earlier many years.

    These are a brilliant addition to my existing speaker sets. These are a brilliant addition to my existing speaker sets. Brilliant for extending high end detail if your system is sounding a bit flat.

    We have two pairs of these, one in our garage and another in the study. Great for music and movie use. Easy to pair with an amp and very sensitive. Don’t expect earth-shaking bass or a reference audio experience, but for something durable for every day or background use they do the job.

    Good compact speaker, greatly improved by some simple mods and careful mounting. I have had two pairs of these for a couple of years, used with smsl tripath amplifiers. One pair is my desk used with internet-computer radio and one in my bedroom with a creek t40 fm tuner. Good clarity and very capable as nearfield monitors. There is a bit of cabinet resonance easily overcome by lining the cabinets with antiresonant material such as silentcoat, takes 10 minutes and a 3mm allen key. Mounting i find best on soft rubber feet which further controls minor bass boom. I would expect wall mounting also to work well to avoid furniture resonance. My musical diet is mostly jazz classical and bbc r4 and am not at all disappointed. I was sufficiently impressed to purchase the second pair.
    • The sound is nothing less than brilliant. The build quality could not be improved.

    I love them but my husband says they are not good for our system and they will blow easily.
    • Excellent performance and value. Wanted speakers for my cocktail x10 audio, but did not want to use theirs, so read some good reviews of the jbl speakers and purchased them. Arrived in speedy fashion, and have proved very successful. Good bass and treble, although the cocktail x10 only has an equaliser so control is limited. This are excellent speakers, especially for the price.
      • This pair of speakers was a real bargain. Well known as a standard solution for room sound, it was delivered promptly and the customer service was excellent when i found one of brackets was defective. They work very well to fill a room with sound and look smart and professional mounted on the walls.

    Decency expected, excellence delivered. . I have just installed the speakers on my outdoor terrace. I’m happy to be able to enjoy jazz with cheese and wine. :)sound is at high volume very clear and works perfectly with my 15 years old sony 100w amplifier. I think the price/quality ratio of these fellows is excellent. Soft grey rubbered edges gives them fancy outdoor appereance. My first and probably not the last jbl toy.
