JBL updates Contractor Series

JBL Professional by Harman yesterday introduced the newly updated JBL Control 23-1, Control 25-1, and Control 28-1 commercial loudspeakers. This significant update to the series brings a compelling array of new features, styling, and competitive pricing. The latest versions of the Control Contractor series feature a fresh and contemporary look, a flatter and wider frequency response for a more natural and full sound, greater bass extension, improved coverage for on- and off-axis sound, and a higher maximum SPL.

The JBL Control Contractor models combine 70V/100V (“T”) and low-impedance (“non-T”) versions for greater job-site and inventory flexibility. Contractors and dealers will also appreciate the retention of the pioneering InvisiBall brackets as standard and the addition of U-brackets as an optional add-on. New outdoor features include an attractive redesigned grill with improved plating and finish, screw-down input terminals, and an optional WeatherMax aluminum grill with a toughened finish, and optional MTC-PC3 watertight panel covers for wire side-exits in tight-to-wall applications.

“The best commercial loudspeaker line just got considerably better,” said Rick Kamlet, senior manager, commercial loudspeakers, Harman Professional Solutions. “By coupling new advances in sonic performance with improved styling and market-inspired options, we’re making the JBL Control Contractor series the most successful contractor’s go-to loudspeaker line.”
