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.

Does the job for meedit: needs to be more descriptive and helpful, i feel. I have a very decent sound system to start with for my music which comprises of kef ls50s as main lr channels and a rel t5 as sub. For the amplification i use marantz nr1602 (the slimline series) and it does pack a punch with it’s discrete output stage. Very revelaing and muscial amplification i would say. And it’s got the avr capabilities which is a bonusanyway, i needed to expand my system into a 7. 1 channel configuration and hence began my search for the decent sized satellites to do the duties. I stumbled upon these and read some reviews about them. As i wouldn’t be using them for any music material i thought of giving these a go based on the reviews and jbls commercial reputation amongst the auditoriums.

Fantastic speakers for the money. Obviously due to the there size they require a subwoofer for lower frequencies (i’d say. They are built well and include wall mounts (however many have said these are not very good). For creating a home cinema setup these are perfect.

Having over the last year or so fallen for the charms of tripath based amplifiers i needed a decent set of high efficiency compact speakers. Tripath amps are renowned for their transparency and detailed sound the downside being limited output power. The jbl’s are a perfect match for them having 89db watt/metre sensitivity an 8ohm load and a fantastic midrange that conveys every bit of emotion in vocals. Bass from the 4inch driver is tight and tunefull and given the small cabinet surprisingly deep. Treble is a touch bright but never harsh and the drivers integrate well giving a lively footapping performance. The only negative is the use of springclip terminals but they grip well and i was able to use 2. Used in my “proper” system with a source and amp costing ten times the price they don’t disgrace themselves retaining a musical and enjoyable sound. One note of caution though,they are true monitors in the sense that you will hear every little facet in a recording.

Great sound and looks; rather heavy so made sure that i followed the wall-mount fitting instructions closely. (i hooked on the security clasp hook/chain before mounting the unit completely, which meant an easier fix in a tight spot).

We have two pairs of these, one in our garage and another in the study. Great for music and movie use. Easy to pair with an amp and very sensitive. Don’t expect earth-shaking bass or a reference audio experience, but for something durable for every day or background use they do the job. Look around in public installations, pubs, clubs and concert halls and you’ll see how good they are.

Good compact speaker, greatly improved by some simple mods and careful mounting. I have had two pairs of these for a couple of years, used with smsl tripath amplifiers. One pair is my desk used with internet-computer radio and one in my bedroom with a creek t40 fm tuner. Good clarity and very capable as nearfield monitors. There is a bit of cabinet resonance easily overcome by lining the cabinets with antiresonant material such as silentcoat, takes 10 minutes and a 3mm allen key. Mounting i find best on soft rubber feet which further controls minor bass boom. I would expect wall mounting also to work well to avoid furniture resonance. My musical diet is mostly jazz classical and bbc r4 and am not at all disappointed. I was sufficiently impressed to purchase the second pair.
