NORTHRIDGE, California â€“ Delivering added functionality for applications where audio is critical to security and safety, JBL Professional has introduced the new Control 25AV-LS loudspeaker. Designed for applications where the music playback loudspeaker system also serves as the life safety system, the Control 25AV-LS (and the Control 25AV-LS-WH in white) is UL listed under UL1480/UUMW as a Fire Protective Signaling Speaker.
With powerful and highly consistent performance, the Control 25AV-LS is based on the successful Control 25AV loudspeaker. Like the Control 25AV, Control 25AV-LS features a 60W multi-tap transformer with 8 ohm bypass, InvisiBall mounting and a magnetically shielded woofer. With the Control 25AV-LS, system integrators now have a model for fire alarm, voice evacuation, or life-safety applications requiring a professional-quality compact loudspeaker, as well as for other applications where code may require that surface mount speakers carry a UL Listing.
â€œBecause we were able to develop the Control 25AV-LS from an existing model in our product lineup, JBL was able to deliver this new loudspeaker to the market very quickly,â€? said Rick Kamlet, Senior Director, Commercial Installed Sound, JBL Professional. â€œHowever, no shortcuts were taken, as the Control 25AV-LS successfully withstood a rigorous safety agency approval process.â€?
The Control 25AV-LS features a paintable aluminum grille. Coating the woofer in polypropylene and terminating its circumference in JBLâ€™s WeatherEdgeâ„¢ a seamless, butyl rubber extension of the woofer surround, protects critical transducer elements. The polycarbonate tweeter diaphragm is reinforced with a thin film of titanium for added rigidity and endurance. Nickel/zinc rust-resistant terminals ensure a secure input connection. JBLâ€™s exclusive SonicGuard overload protection is virtually inaudible to the listener, ensuring reliability while providing full fidelity sound.
