The JBL Control 65P/T (Black) is a compact full-range, two-way pendant-type loudspeaker that provides superb sound reproduction and very consistent, wide coverage for rooms with open architecture ceilings and other locations where a pendant form factor is desired. Combining a large 200 mm (8 in) diameter waveguide with low-frequency projection apertures, the two coaxially-mounted drivers provide a seamless integration of coverage, resulting in extremely even pattern control and coverage where all listeners hear a consistent, high-fidelity sound quality.
The wide 120Deg. coverage pattern allows for the use of fewer speakers, reducing the cost of the installed system without sacrificing performance. Excellent sound quality coupled with stylish design and easy installation makes the Control 65P/T ideal for a wide variety of applications including retail, restaurants, hotels, casinos, fitness centers, convention centers, exhibIt’spaces, conference rooms, atriums, museums, transit centers and other open-ceiling applications. The Control 65P/T includes a single-point mounting system for easy and secure suspension in open-ceiling applications. Two complete hanging cable systems are included, providing both main and safety suspension cables.
Includes are extra-long 4.5 m (15 feet) high tensile galvanized steel wire rope having spring clips for the loudspeaker end of the cable and UL listed cable fasteners for infinitely adjustable suspension height. The system’s 130 mm (51/4 in) low-frequency driver features a polypropylene-coated cone and 25 mm (1 in) copper voice coil with vented fiberglass resin coil-former for high power handling and improved long-term reliability. The coaxially-mounted 20 mm (3/4 in) textile soft dome high frequency driver features internal damping for smooth extended response, along with an aluminum voice coil former and neodymium magnet assembly with ferro fluid cooling, for high-fidelity sound quality with enhanced long-term sound level capability.
The Control 65P/T contains a high-quality 60 Watt multi-tap transformer for use on 70V/100V distributed loudspeaker lines and is switchable for 8-ohm voice-coil direct operation. Euro-style clip-in connectors allow for easy wiring. For protected outdoor applications, rubber boots are included to cover the input connectors and an optional terminal cover is available for harsher locations.
