About JBL 226CT In-Ceiling Speaker

The JBL Professional Control 226C/T 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 226C/T 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 226C/T features a 165 mm (6.5 in) Kevlar-reinforced low frequency driver coupled with a 25 mm (1 in) exit titanium compression driver for outstanding reliability and performance. The system is complete with a pre-attached back can and is designed for years of maintenance free use.

Easy to install, the Control 226C/T features JBL professional's proven C-Ring with Tile Rail suspension system. Installation can be accomplished from beneath the ceiling structure for instances when access above the ceiling tile is not possible. Additionally, the removable multi-pin locking connector, with secure screw-down terminals, allows for pre-wiring the input wires for easy clip-on convenience during installation.

A top quality, low saturation 68 Watt multi-tap transformer comes pre-attached on the Control 226C/T enabling the system to be used on 70V or 100V distributed speaker lines. The system can be used in either 8 ohm (low impedance) or transformer mode by selecting the desired function via the baffle mounted impedance switch. The clean, contemporary look of the Control 226C/T's grille is designed to suit a variety of settings, offering a simple, elegant appearance that fits into a wide variety of decors.
