Control®25AV Shielded Indoor/Outdoor Monitor Speaker
Video shielded for use near video
Extremely smooth frequency response.
Stainless steel grille for harsh
60 Watt transformer for 70V or 100V
lines, with 8 thru.
SonicGuardTM overload protection.
130 mm (5¼") polypropylene coated
woofer, 10 mm (¾") titanium coated
Includes InvisiBall ® mounting
hardware and sealed input panel cover.
Screw-down input terminals.
100° x 100° high frequency horn.
The Control® 25AV utilizes a deep
cabinet, high power components and
complex network to achieve extremely
smooth high fidelity performance from a
compact 2-way loudspeaker.
Premium performance capability and
even coverage ensures excellent sound
quality throughout the listening area.
Magnetic shielding allows use of the
speaker in close proximity to video monitors.
The top-quality transformer, with
reduced saturation, allows use on either
70 volt or 100 volt distributed speaker
lines, with similar performance fidelity. In
the bypass position, the high 8 impedance
allows use of more speakers on a
The unique, global patent pending
InvisiBall ® mounting method is simple to
install, aims easily, and provides a high
degree of theft deterrence.
The cabinet accepts a variety of paints
to match any décor.
Weather resistance is maximized by a
stainless steel grille, which is paintable.
Coating the woofer in polypropylene and
terminating its circumference in JBL’s
WeatherEdgeTM, a seamless, butyl rubber
extension of the woofer surround, protects
critical transducer elements. The
polycarbonate tweeter diaphragm is reinforced
with a thin film of titanium for
added rigidity and endurance. Nickel/zinc
rust-resistant terminals ensure a secure
JBL’s exclusive SonicGuard overload
protection is virtually inaudible to the listener,
ensuring reliability while providing
full fidelity sound.
The Control 25AV can be used full
range or low frequencies can be further
augmented with the addition of one of
the Control Contractor subwoofer models.

The loudspeaker shall consist of a 135 mm (5-1/4 in) low frequency
transducer, 20 mm (3/4 in) high frequency transducer, and frequency
dividing network installed in ported enclosure. The low frequency voice
coil shall be 25 mm (1 in) in diameter.
Performance specifications of a typical unit shall be as follows: Usable
frequency response shall extend from 70 Hz to 23 kHz (10 dB below
rated sensitivity, in half-space, with no external equalization) and the
speaker shall be flat from 130 Hz to 14 kHz (typically ±1.5 dB). Rated
power shall be at least 200 watts continuous program power for 100
continuous hours duration (defined a 3 dB above a test signal of filtered
random pink noise conforming to international standard IEC268-5).
Measured sensitivity shall be at least 87 dB-SPL (at 1m [3.3ft] with 2.83V
input, averaged from 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 a built-in 60W transformer.
Selectable taps shall allow operation nominally at 15W, 30W or 60W
from either a 70.7V or 100V distributed speaker line, plus 7.5W from a
70.7V line only.
The system shall be protected against damage from occasional overpowering
via full range limiting that limits the power to the network and
transducers. The limiting system shall be inaudible during activation. The
high frequency transducer shall be horn-loaded to more evenly cover a
nominal 90° horizontal by 90° vertical area.
The enclosure shall be constructed of high-impact polystyrene and the
grille shall be made of treated stainless steel for protection against the
elements in outdoor applications, and for easy paintability of both cabinet
and grille. The grille shall be secured via screws to keep it in place
when facing downward.
The low frequency transducer shall have a polypropylene-coated cone
and a butyl rubber surround which shall extend seamlessly over the
edge of the speaker frame to protect against the elements. The high frequency
transducer shall be constructed of polycarbonate, reinforced with
a titanium film for additional weather resistance. The system shall withstand
Mil Spec 810 testing with specified durations for exposure to the
following environments 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 ultra-violet (method 505.3).
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, and the access area shall be on the front of the
loudspeaker for ease of installation and adjustment. The loudspeaker
shall be rotatable over a minimum of ±35° in all directions via a balltype
mounting system. The ball mechanism shall be internal to the cabinet
to allow low-profile mounting and better stability via short moment
arm. The logo shall be rotatable for proper orientation when the loudspeaker
is mounted horizontally or vertically.
The external wiring connectors shall be screw-down terminals. Overall
cabinet dimensions shall be no greater than 236 high x 186 wide x 159
mm deep (9.3 x 7.4 x 6.3 in). and shall weigh no more than 4.0 kg (9
lb). The finish shall be lightly textured black or white.
The system shall be the JBL Model Control 25AV (or Control 25AVWH)
with included InvisiBallTM mounting system.
