Control 29AV-1Premium Indoor/Outdoor Monitor Speaker®

Key Features:

 Extremely smooth, fl at frequency response with extended bandwidth.

 110° x 85° HF coverage, rotatable horn.

 110 Watt transformer for 70V or 100V lines, with 8Ω thru.

 SonicGuard™ overload protection.

 200 mm (8) Kevlar cone woofer, 25 mm (1) titanium diaphragm compression driver.

 Includes InvisiBall™ mounting hardware, plus ten 6 mm attachment points for suspension and optional U-bracket.

 Sealed input panel cover and screwdown input terminals.

The Control® 29AV-1 provides improved voicing for extremely fl at, high fi delity performance, extended bandwidth and well-controlled defi ned coverage from a compact loudspeaker.

The rotatable high-frequency horn allows use of the speaker in either vertical or horizontal orientation. Consistent coverage ensures excellent sound character throughout the listening area. Moderate magnetic shielding allows use of the speaker as close as 230 mm (9) to video monitors.

The top-quality line distribution transformer, designed for minimal insertion loss and reduced saturation, allows use of either 70V or 100V distributed speaker lines. In bypass position, the 8Ω impedance allows use of multiple speakers on a loudspeaker line.

The included InvisiBall mounting method is simple to install, aims easily and provides a high degree of theft deterrence. InvisiBall allows horizontal rotation of up to 41° off-axis and vertical rotation of up to 36° (horn end inward) or 23° (woofer end inward). Attachment points for the optional MTC-29UB U-bracket allows for compact installation.

Weather resistance has been maximized. The woofer’s cone is made of kevlar, surround is pure butyl rubber, and the driver basket is rear loaded to minimize direct exposure. The compression driver’s diaphragm is pure titanium. The grille is thermoset composite coated and comes with foam to minimize incursion of water. Nickel/zinc rust-resistant terminals ensure a secure input connection. An MTC-PC2 sealed-entrance cover is included to further protect the speaker’s terminals. JBL’s exclusive SonicGuard overload protection is virtually inaudible to the listener, ensuring reliability while providing full fi delity sound. Available in black or white (-WH). The cabinet will accept a variety of paints to match any décor.

Architectural Specifi cations:

The loudspeaker shall consist of a 200 mm (8 in) low frequency transducer, 25 mm (1 in) compression driver, and frequency dividing network. The low frequency driver’s voice coil shall be 50 mm (2 in) in diameter. Performance specifi cations of a typical unit shall be as follows: Usable frequency response shall extend from 37 Hz to 18 kHz (10 dB below rated sensitivity, half-space, no external equalization). Rated power shall be at least 300 watts continuous program power for 100 continuous hours duration (defi ned as 3 dB above a test signal of fi ltered random pink noise conforming to IEC268-5). Measured sensitivity shall be at least 90 dB-SPL (at 1 m [3.3 ft] with 2.83 V input, ave. 100 Hz to 10 kHz).

The input shall be switchable for use either at nominal 8 ohms, or on a 70.7V or 100V distributed speaker line via built-in transformer. Selectable taps shall nominally be 110W, 55W, or 28W on either a 70.7V or 100V distributed speaker line, plus 14W on 70.7V line only.

The system shall be protected against damage from occasional overpowering via full range limiting, which shall be inaudible during activation. The compression driver shall be horn-loaded to cover 110 degrees by 85 degrees with a high degree of accuracy and the horn shall be rotatable to achieve these coverages either in the horizontal or vertical planes, regardless of cabinet orientation.

The cabinet and grille shall be paintable. The grille shall be secured via screws to keep it in place when facing downward. The low frequency transducer shall have woven kevlar cone and butyl rubber surround, with the frame protected from direct weather exposure. The compression driver shall be constructed with a titanium diaphragm for weather resistance. The system shall withstand Mil Spec 810 testing with specifi ed durations with no effect on its acoustical performance or structural integrity: salt spray (method 509.3), temperature (method 501.3 and 502.3), humidity (method 507.3) and ultraviolet (method 505.3). Further, it shall pass Mil-Std-202F (method 101D) for salt spray. The system shall have an IEC 529 splashproof rating of IP-X4. For theft-deterrence, the installation access area shall be hidden behind a snap-out cover on the front grille. The included ball mechanism shall be internal to the cabinet. The cabinet shall have ten (10) 6 mm mounting points, including 2 on each side and 3 on top and bottom and an accessory U-bracket shall be available. The grille logo shall be rotatable for proper orientation with loudspeaker mounted horizontally or vertically. The external wiring connectors shall be screw-down terminals. Overall cabinet dimensions shall be no greater than 520 mm high x 306 mm wide x 277 mm deep (20.5 x 12.0 x 10.9 in) and shall weigh no more than 12.2 kg (26.8 lb). The fi nish shall be lightly textured black or white. The system shall be the JBL Model C29AV-1 (or C29AV-WH-1) with included InvisiBall® (mounting system).
