At InfoComm 09, JBL is introducing the Control® Contractor 50 Series, a non-powered, surface-mount, subwoofer-satellite loudspeaker system for applications where wide-bandwidth, high-fidelity foreground/background music is required. The Control 50’s stylish appearance, easy mounting, and compatibility with JBL’s Control 40 Series in-ceiling models make it the most versatile subwoofer-satellite system in its class.
“JBL developed the Control 50 Series to meet the needs of any commercial environment where high-quality audio and stylish visual appearance are top priorities, including restaurants, retail stores, music cafes, health clubs, theme bars and leisure venues,� said Rick Kamlet, Senior Director, Commercial Installed Sound, JBL Professional. “To that end, the Control 50 Series provides an optimal combination of elegant design and smooth, accurate sound.�
The sleek Control 52 satellite loudspeaker produces superb high-fidelity sound via a low-distortion, 2.5-inch driver, which features a secondary bucking magnet for high efficiency, rubber half roll surround for enhanced bass performance, a .75-inch, copper-clad, aluminum wire voice coil on a vented Nomex® former for high fidelity and reliability, and a copper-capped pole piece for more consistent impedance and extended high-frequency response. The wall bracket allows each speaker to be angled up to 45 degrees in any direction.
The 100 Watts continuous (400 Watts peak) Control 50S/T subwoofer contains a high-power, long-excursion, 8-inch driver that features an extremely robust, high-mass cone for extended low-frequency response, a 1.5-inch, 4-layer copper voice coil for high motor strength, an aluminum former for good transient response, and a rubber half roll surround for enhanced bass performance. The Control 50S/T subwoofer is very easy to install, featuring a 2-piece, easy mount, drop-in wall bracket. The system’s crossover network is built into the subwoofer. A cover over the Control 50S/T terminal cup keeps wiring neat.
Connection of the subwoofer is straightforward, utilizing removable locking connectors, allowing for easy pre-wiring with snap-in connection. The 70V/100V tap setting or low-impedance setting is selected via a simple rotary switch located on the subwoofer’s wiring panel.
Available as a packaged system or as separate items, the Control 50 Series is extremely versatile. The C50PACK system contains four Control 52 satellite speakers and one Control 50S/T subwoofer as an easy, predesigned system. For smaller floor spaces, the Control 50S/T subwoofer can be utilized with two Control 52 satellite speakers.
Both the Control 50S/T and Control 52 can be mixed with the existing Control 40 Series in-ceiling models—the Control 40CS/T subwoofer and/or Control 42 satellite speaker—to match whatever the form factor may be required.
Control 50 Series models are available in either black or white.
