HARMAN’s JBL Professional Adds New Control 45C/T
Adding to its Control Contractor Series, HARMAN’s JBL Professional has introduced the Control 45C/T coaxial ceiling loudspeaker, a two-way, 5.25-inch loudspeaker that offers what JBL says is “extremely consistent” 120-degree broadband pattern control featuring the company’s Radiation Boundary Integrator (RBI) technology.
The Control 45C/T is an in-ceiling professional loudspeaker designed for environments that can benefit from extremely wide bandwidth and very consistent coverage from a speaker with a small footprint. JBL says the tweeter sound is “well-controlled by a large waveguide,” while the low-frequency sound projects through specially designed apertures in the RBI. This design allows for a seamless integration of coverage over a wide bandwidth from coaxially- mounted drivers. The result is that the sound character is extremely consistent throughout the listening space with little variation from location to location.
The large backcan on the Control 45C/T, along with the low-frequency driver design, provides extended bass response for a warm full-bodied tone. The system’s 5.25-inch woofer features a polypropylene cone and pure butyl- rubber surround for long life. The coaxially mounted 0.75-inch soft dome features ferro-fluid cooling for enhanced power handling and reduced power compression.
The Control 45C/T is switchable for use as either an 8-ohm low-impedance speaker, or as part of a 70V/100V distributed loudspeaker system.
