The JBL The Control® 28-1 is a two-way 8” speaker with rich sonic character, wide coverage, consistent coverage, versatile mounting, and a contemporary high design look that fits into a wide range of decors, This makes Control 28-1 a great choice for a wide variety of applications, including retail stores, restaurants, health clubs, theme parks, educational facilities, hospitality, music cafes, leisure venues, and anywhere where a top quality high-output indoor/outdoor foreground/background music (and/or paging) speaker is required.

Note: This item is priced separately, but sold in pairs. For more information please contact your Full Compass Sales Pro.

The unique InvisiBall mounting hardware is included in with each system, making short work of permanent installation. The InvisiBall mounting method provides a high degree of both vertical and horizontal rotation, and because InvisiBall adjustments are made through a hidden access behind the logo badge, the grille never needs to be removed and there exists a high degree of theft deterrence as well. Integrated M6 mounting points for an optional U-bracket adds to the installation versatility.
