Decency expected, excellence delivered. . I have just installed the speakers on my outdoor terrace. I’m happy to be able to enjoy jazz with cheese and wine. :)sound is at high volume very clear and works perfectly with my 15 years old sony 100w amplifier. I think the price/quality ratio of these fellows is excellent. Soft grey rubbered edges gives them fancy outdoor appereance. My first and probably not the last jbl toy.
Simply unbeatable value little speakers. I got my first pair of these great little speakers over 25 yrs ago, when cd’s and cd players first came out and i needed a pair of small cheap but quality speakers to go with my very first cd player (philips) and basic amp so i could listen to dire straights ‘brothers in arms’ and chris rea’s ‘on the beach’. I had a part time saturday job in a hi-fi shop and heard them being tested every day – i was totally amazed at the quality sound coming form these tiny little speakers. So i was overjoyed recently to discover, when i needed to replace some bulky surround speakers in my bedroom with something smaller, that they still made these little beauties. The latest version is even better in sound and incredible value at [ quid. If you need kick ass bass you will want bigger speakers but the bass on these is very respectable and the overall quality of sound for such a tiny speaker is hi-fie level and way above most pc speakers. They have so many uses too, from surround (can be wall mounted), bedroom system, bathrooms (i think there is a special version for that) – i have even known someone use them as rear parcel shelf speakers in their car .Also good as cheap near-field monitors in a home recording studio, which is what i used them for eventually. ]
From start to installation i’m very impressed with this item. From ordering to delivery took 48 hours. Packaging of this item both by amazon and jml was superb. Easy to follow instruction manual and wall brackets were supplied connected via my sony amp the sound quality from these speakers is just first class and worth every penny.
Perfect for your outdoor audio pleasures. Purchased these speakers for our back garden. These provide brilliant bass response at high volumes while maintaining clarity without distortion. We have had these speakers outside in all sorts of weather for around 3 years now and haven’t come across a single problem. Highly recommended for your outdoor audio pleasures.
Vey versatile and excellent build quality. Superb set of speakers, nothing like it for the price, well made very solid and comes with a set of wall mounts and safety lanyards. I bought two sets in the end. One set i use in the house attached to a record deck through a phono amp and a small audio amp good range with an impressive volume. The other set i use as studio monitors in a recording booth and they are excellent.
JBL Control One Rugged 2-Way 100mm (4″) Bookshelf Satellite Audio Monitor Speakers (Pair) – Black Chrome : I bought these speakers to play a wide variety of music genres through in a lounge. I was slightly worried that their small size would prevent them from doing the job adequately. The quality is outstanding for the price. They are 1/5 the price of my ‘best’ speakers but they are certainly not 1/5 of the quality. Speaker technology has certainly come on over the past years.
