About the JBL Control 12C/T

The JBL Control 12C/T 3" Full Range Ceiling Loudspeaker (White) is a full-range ceiling speaker consisting of 76mm (3 inch) wide-bandwidth cone driver mounted in a vented, paintable baffle made of UV resistant UL94-V0 material, with a preattached blind-mount backcan for quick and easy installation. The speaker is designed to provide excellent sound quality for a wide variety of low to medium volume applications such as music cafes, business music systems, retail stores, music/paging systems, airports, reception/waiting rooms, lounges, courtrooms, convention centers, hotels, educational facilities and more. The 130deg. coverage is especially wide, delivering consistent sound quality for listeners located both off and on axis.

The high technology cone driver is designed with a lightweight high temperature Kapton voice coil former and aluminum coupling ring to reduce distortion and extend the high frequency response of the system. The FEA-optimized motor construction and cone geometry allow for smooth frequency response and improved off-axis performance. A high temperature grade voice coil insures stable performance under long term high power working conditions. The butyl rubber surround provides long-term durability and good sonic damping and the polypropylene cone is water and humidity resistant.

The removable locking connector has screw terminals for secure wire termination and "loop through" terminals. A dual strain relief assembly provides clamping for use with cable or flex conduit. The compact back can extends only 138 mm (5.4 inches) behind the baffle, allowing the speaker to fit into more shallow ceiling areas.

Ideal for a wide variety of projects, the Control 12C/T is switchable for use as either an 8 ohm low-impedance speaker or as part of a 70V or 100V distributed loudspeaker system with a 15 Watt multi-tap transformer. The speaker comes complete with two tile rail supports, one C-ring support backing plate, cutout template, paint shield and grille. A safety seismic attachment ring is provided on the top surface.
