JBL Control 227CT
6.5" Coaxial Ceiling Speaker with HF Compression Driver and Multi-Tap Transfomer


The JBL Professional Control 227CT is a premium in-ceiling professional loudspeaker designed for applications requiring superior quality sound in ceiling-mount applications. Delivering exceptional next-generation performance in a medium format coaxial point source design, the Control 227CT incorporates breakthrough performance features such as best-in-class pattern control to provide a consistent sound throughout the listening area. Especially wide coverage allows fewer speakers to cover the space, reducing both the material and labor cost for the installation.

The Control 227CT features a 6.5" Kevlar-reinforced low frequency driver coupled with a 1" exit titanium compression driver for enduring reliability and outstanding performance. A top quality, low saturation 60 Watt multi-tap transformer comes pre-attached on the Control 227CT enabling the system to be used on 70V or 100V distributed speaker lines.

The Control 227CT is easy to install and features a removable multi-pin locking connector, with secure screw-down terminals. This allows for pre-wiring the input wires for easy clip-on convenience during installation.  The optional MTC-200BB6 14 cubic liter (0.5 cubic foot) back can is made of extra-thick 16 guage steel and the top is lined with 1/2" medium density fibreboard.

The clean, contemporary look of the MTC-RG6/8 grille for the Control 227CT is designed to suit a variety of settings, offering a simple, elegant appearance that fits into a wide variety of décors.

To ensure long life and reliability, the Control 227CT passes JBL's 100-hour torture power test.  Nobody in the industry has more demanding reliability standards.
