JBL Control 1 (Black)
Speakers Per Pair
One per customer / household. While stocks last.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.
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 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.
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 4 out of 5 by Spotop from Great little speakers The speakers themselves are fantastic. My only issue is that the ring that secures the ball joint split very easily. Only a quarter turn with the bar that was supplied

Rated 5 out of 5 by Richard81 from Great value Bought these for a spare bedroom/office to connect to my old Hi-Fi (Arcam Alpha 2 amplifier, Denon TU260L tuner, Pure Jongo A2 wireless adapter), needed something smaller than my old Tannoy E11s which wouldn't fit. Had them about a month so far and very happy with the purchase. Look good alongside my old stuff, excellent clarity for the price and not lacking in base despite small size. Haven't needed to drive them hard but feel they could take it. Connection is via spring clips rather than the banana plugs that I'm more used to, but also bought a couple of metres of Cambridge Audio Ultra Micro speaker cable in person from Richer Solihull at the same time and works fine. Definitely recommend, has given a new lease of life to my old hi-fi, and not missing the old speakers at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ginjah from Can’t go wrong at this price. Bought these as a quick set up to play some old vinyl. Using with a Rega Planner 1 and a DOUK X1 amp.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous from Good for the price Speakers operate ok for the price(I guess I'm a bit spoilt by the B&W's in the lounge) wall brackets are a bit flimsy, and the rubber layer on the outside of the cabinet is coming away, after only a week and a half since being installed!
