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 Incredible sound for the price. I just visited Richer sounds in Southampton and asked for advice on upgrading my Tannnoy SFX front L/R speakers . The staff member was really friendly and asked me my budget I said about £100.00 and Stated that I read that the Wharfdale 220s were good , He advised me that the JBL one’s were far better and are an industry standard and then the price came up as cheaper. First class customer service from Richer sounds representative. I got home unplugged the small satellite SFX Speakers and fired up the JBL ones’ on my Sony 1030 av receiver . Wow I’m no expert in audio but the sound is greatly improved it sounds bigger and more spacious I can hear things in music that the old speakers couldn’t produce. love theses speakers and they look great as well. . I’m happy with the service from Richer Sounds they are honest and give advice so you get the best for your budget.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb sound from a compact unit Two sets of these small but powerful speakers has really enhanced the sound of my AV system. A fantastic bargain to boot also even comes with wall brackets if needed. As usual Richer Sounds is the place for sounds and great service from Middlesbrough as normal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW - What power! Bought on impulse when seeing the price collecting my turntable in the Chester store. There may be many albums to check out the sound quality my choice was Haircut 100 - what a joy. No hesitation in recommending these speakers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Aesthetically pleasing, good sound Bought to update some older larger speakers of character. These JBLs are half the size and give a good account of themselves. They seem a bit mid range. The bass is fair but the top somehow gets a bit lost. Overall I’m happy considering the price but may at some future point shunt them down to the kitchen and throw more money at my main set up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small but large I bought these for a teenager's bedroom to partner an amplifier I built for his 18th birthday. The bedroom has few horizontal surfaces so the ability to mount these speakers on the wall was a big plus point. The aim wasn't studio quality reference modelling, rather I wanted a fairly well balanced speaker that wouldn't displace the neighbours' dentures when connected to Spotify on his phone or laptop and playing his fairly eclectic taste in music. These speakers achieve this aim exactly. The stereo field is persuasive, the bass is authentic and not overbearing, and the neighbours have not had to visit the dentist. For the price, these are an incredibly good small speaker solution.
