Famed for their legendary upbeat sound and tough construction, the JBL Control One speakers are a true classic.

Rugged design for flexible placement

Tough and rugged cabinets make these speakers ideal for commercial and harsher environments. Unlike wooden speakers, these polypropylene moulded speakers won’t rot, crack or deteriorate, making them ideal for use in pool areas, bathrooms, kitchens, conservatories and commercial applications. Rounded edges with protective ‘bumpers’ protect both speakers and surroundings.

Powerful sound
JBL have a long history of producing punchy studio monitors and the Control 1 speakers reflect that sound tradition. Titanium-laminate tweeters matched to 100mm woofers provide a bright, forward sound that is ideal for cutting through background noise, again making these speakers ideal for commercial use in bars, cafes and shops.

Magnetic shielding
Magnetic shielding means that these speakers can safely be used at close range to magnetically vulnerable areas. If you have precious reel-to-reel, cassette, video or other taped media, these speakers can safely be placed alongside. The shielding also protects against picture distortion on older CRT TVs and display systems.

Wall-mounts included
Supplied with flexible wall-mounts, the Control Ones can be mounted high up and out of the way but also angled downwards to direct the sound. Flexible ball joints give a wide range of directionality. Safety wires, in case of mount failure, are also supplied.

A legendary speaker that’s available at a competition-busting price, thanks to your friends at Richer Sounds!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic Unit.. I used to install these in pubs and bars in the '80s. Back then they were reassuringly expensive so I was pleased to find that the 21st century version is both affordable and high quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great low cost speakers great in the studio! Great set of speakers, especially if your creating music they do not colour the sound you get out what you put in, don't expect them to rattle the doors least not on there own but as an add on there great. I use them in a home studio to monitor the recorded sound for the final mis if it sounds good on these it will sound good on any system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from JBL Speakers I have dealt with Richer Sounds for over 30 years and have always found the staff to be knowledgeable and helpful and give honest answers to any questions I have asked. I had never heard of JBL until I found them on the web page and bought them on their recommendation and as more than happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic design, still a strong choice I think I first came across these in my youth as nearfield/desk monitors at a community radio station. They have evolved somewhat since and still can shame a lot of more expensive options. The included wall mounts are also a definite plus in a world where some manufacturers ask silly money for mounts or stands, making small speakers a more expensive proposition than the headline price suggests! With a fairly rapid roll off around 80Hz, above the 60-40Hz range that can over excite many typically sized British rooms these are very unfussy about placement, though do sound best with some reinforcement from a back wall solid enough not to boom. If possible use the supplied brackets into a masonry wall. Despite this roll off, subjectively they do not lack audible bass. They have a good punchy response and play the audible bass range well as most polypropylene mid-bass drivers do. However, with vocals especially it is obvious that this is much better engineered than many alternatives, the ‘cuppiness’ polypropylene mid bass can give voices in many designs is well controlled here. To feel bass as well as hear it, you would need a sub, however as most rooms you would use speakers of this size in would also need treatment and/or DSP to get a good in room response with a sub this is really not an issue. They also serve well as satellite speakers in a surround system, I have four of these and a receiver with pre outs into my main stereo system to give a 6.1 system in addition to the pair I am using as a stereo pair in one of many second systems! They work very well in this application and with relatively little DSP trickery integrate plenty well enough for surround duty with much higher end kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ace little speakers I wasn't expecting too much from these, but they give out a really top quality sound. My wife's got her eyes on them to use as handy monitors for when she's playing her sets at parties. There's an endorsement.
