Paintable, Weather-Resistant Speakers That Sound Excellent In or Outdoors!

The JBL Control 29AV Surface Mount Speaker is a versatile 2-way indoor/outdoor speaker that is a great solution for mid-sized applications, from church installation to events, weddings, parties, concerts... the possibilities are endless. The two-way JBL Control 29AV speaker has an 8” woofer with kevlar cone for weather resistance and a 1-inch exit compression driver mounted onto a rotatable high-frequency horn, which allows use of the speaker in either vertical or horizontal orientation.

JBL Control 29AV Features:
  • Extended bandwidth, extremely smooth frequency response.
  • 110° x 85° HF coverage, rotatable horn.
  • 110 Watt transformer for 70V or 100V lines, with 8 ohm thru.
  • SonicGuard overload protection.
  • 200 mm (8") Kevlar cone woofer, 25 mm (1") titanium diaphragm compression driver.
  • Includes InvisiBall mounting hardware, plus ten 6 mm attachment points for suspension and optional U-bracket.
  • Sealed input panel cover and screw-down input terminals.
A low-distortion 110 degree by 85 degree rotatable horn provides smooth and even coverage, while the extremely flat frequency response allows for outstanding sonic character throughout the listening area. Sonic integrity is further assured due to the sophisticated crossover network with steep slopes and impedance compensating circuitry. The JBL Control 29AV comes with a top-quality line distribution transformer, designed for minimal insertion loss and reduced saturation, which allows use on 70V, 100V or standard the 8 ohm thru operation. JBL's exclusive SonicGuard™ overload protection, which is virtually inaudible to the listener, ensures reliability while providing full fidelity sound. A degree of magnetic shielding allows use of the speaker close to video monitors.

Each Control 29AV is shipped with JBL's patented InvisiBall® mounting system. InvisiBall is simple to install, aims easily and provides a high degree of theft deterrence. The optional MTC-29UB U-bracket provides an alternative compact installation method and is particularly useful for low profile underbalcony applications. In addition, ten suspension points are provided for suspending the speaker or using a speaker stand adapter.

The JBL Control 29AV surface mount speaker has been designed for indoor or outdoor use. The woofer's cone is made of kevlar, the surround is pure butyl rubber, and the driver is rear loaded onto the baffle to minimize direct basket exposure to the elements. The compression driver's diaphragm is pure titanium. The grille is coated in polyethylene and comes with foam backing to minimize incursion of water. Nickel/zinc outdoor rated input terminals ensure a secure input connection, and an MTC-PC2 sealed-entrance cover is included to further protect terminals.

Available in black or white (Control 29AV-WH), the cabinet accepts a variety of paints to match any dècor.
