JBL Control X is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound!!! A month ago I bought this pair of speakers without much expectations, however, the sound quality is unbeat. At first I connected them to an old Pioneer amplifier that I had for several years ago, but when I heard the quality of these speakers I decided to buy a better quality amplifier. After seeing several options, I decided on the Marantz PM5005 and the sound improved to a quality I had not heard before. These speakers are worth every penny that is paid for them. Congratulations JBL for giving us these incredible speakers at an unbeatable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome just awesome! These speakers rock! Bought them over many higher priced speakers and couldn't be happier! Great sound! The bass, the highs and lows, the pure sound is tremendous. Connected them with a Sonos amp and I'm blown away how great they sound. I have lots of friends with outdoor speakers and these sound so much better than ALL of theirs. I would recommend these to everyone! JBL never fails!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is for the Control One outdoor speakers I've had these speakers for two years and they ROCK! Great highs, but my favorite thing about JBL speakers is the LOWS! Just wonderful response and clarity. We use them almost every day in the summer and most days in the winter. No rust on speaker grills or dry rotting to be seen. LOVE THEM!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound from small speakers Impressed at the sound quality and output of these... paired with a subwoofer they provide a rich full spectrum sound. Lovely discreet design as well, I've mounted them under an outdoor BBQ area.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Volltreffer Aufgrund der kompakten Maße erfüllen diese optisch gelungenen Regallautsprecher genau meine Wünsche. Sie sollten kleiner als normale Regallautsprecher sein, weil sie neben dem Fernseher nicht aufdringlich erscheinen durften. Als Satelliten in Verbindung mit einem starken teuflischen Subwoofer werden mangelnde Bassqualitäten ausgezeichnet ausgeglichen. Ich bereue es nicht, dass ich die kleinen 500 gr. Minisatelliten gegen erstklassige 2,6 Kilo schwere Multitalente ausgetauscht habe.

I have an existing Bose V100 mounted on the ceiling (facing the floor) for ATMOS system. I will replace them with 2-way speakers and will utilize the same Pinpoint bracket. Is it recommended to mount the Control X on the ceiling facing the floor?

Hello, are there adapters to mount the Control X on speaker stands, or mic stands?

Asked by: JJSound
Hi Nick. This is an inquiry regarding your answer. I am currently using Bose V100 (pair) for my ATMOS ceiling speakers. I planned to buy Control X to replace my Bose V100. What is your reason why it is not recommended for ceiling mounting? Is it because of the weight? The construction of the cabinet might fall-off or my ceiling might fall-off?

is het mogelijk een subwoofer aan te sluiten op het systeem? Control x

Asked by: controlxxx
Hi De JBL Control X zijn passieve speakers, welke je aan een versterker/receiver moet aansluiten. Als deze versterker/receiver een subwoofer uitgang heeft, dan is dat mogelijk. Je kan geen subwoofer aansluiten direct op de JBL Control X speakers

Hi guys,I’m looking for advice Control X or Control 25 AV for outdoor speakers. Which will have better sound? Thanks 

Asked by: D Dimov
I would personally recommend getting the JBL CONTROL 25 AV, since it would be able to a deeper bass with a frequency response of 70-23,000 Hz (-10dB). Aside from that the cabinet and grille can be painted to match your decor and it has warranty coverage of 5 years for parts and labor.
