Control Now is flexible enough to put the "sweet spot" anywhere--or everywhere
Who could deny that the sound of bullets whizzing by your head or an explosion from your favorite action flick makes watching movies more exciting? And who could deny that when listening to a CD or your iPod, theres no better experience than closing your eyes and imagining your favorite musical artist giving you your own private concert right in front you? We hear you.
JBL Control Now loudspeakers use ¾" titanium-laminate tweeters to re-create all of the high frequencies you hear in your favorite movie or song from your favorite artist. JBL uses titanium because titaniums strength and lightweight make it perfect for being able to quickly and accurately reproduce sounds like bullets whizzing by and high notes from musical artists without strain or distortion. Add JBLs patented Bi-Radial Horn and high frequencies have a wide and uniform dispersion resulting in smooth high frequency sound over a large listening area.
When it comes to low frequencies, JBL Control NOW uses dual 4", low frequency, PolyPlas drivers to reproduce the mid-bass in the movie explosions that make us jump. PolyPlas has the rigidity while staying lightweight to reproduce bass effortlessly and with impact. Add that JBL engineering optimizes the low frequency drivers so that they provide maximum output with minimal distortion and you have a speaker that will literally have you shaking.

The sound quality is consistent from the house to the back of the yard so we can listen to our favorite music loud and clear sitting on the deck, gardening in the yard or chilling in the forest beyond.
My concern that the speakers might be flimsy when mounted on the back wall of my house over a high-traffic area is negated by the sturdy construction and easy-to-use heavy duty mounting bracket provided by JBL. I'm not worried that it will be damaged if someone hits the speaker with a heavy fishing pole or stray fetch toy.
I paired the speakers with JBL's WEM-1 50-Watt Wireless Amplifier and Expansion Module. The system was easy to setup and connect to my PC for internet radio.
Sound quality is very loud and crisp.
These units were hefty, attractive and affordable, also, with a name like JBL, I knew i'd be doing my ears a favor by purchasing them..
I bought these for 59.99 each at my local Costco, rushed home with my purchase, and a mere 30 minutes later was bathing my ears in their rich, warm sound.....
Install was a breeze, I mounted these units 3" from the ceiling in two corners. (In the instruction manual JBL notes that the mounting position etc have a profound effect on the quality of the bass and richness of the sound. I've found that 3" from the ceiling in two corners provides a nice amount of bass without rattling the neon signs off the wall) JBL provides you with a bevy of parts depending on the install type, and as the previous reviewer had stated, connecting the wire to the terminals is a pain in the butt! This is mainly due to the fact that the connectors are countersunk in the rear of the speaker, and if you have snausages for fingers like myself, this can become quite interesting, especially when you're perched on a ladder, trying not to drop your lovely new purchase.
All in all, I think that 59.99 each for this kind of sound is well worth it, I'm thinking about going back for two more, so I can put them outside.. Yes, they are all weather rated...
