About JBL 322C In-Ceiling Speaker

The JBL Control 322C delivers exceptional next-generation performance in a coaxial point source design ceiling loudspeaker. The low frequency cone performs as a true 12 inch (300 mm) diameter waveguide for the high frequencies. A unique metal throat transitions seamlessly to the horn to eliminate high frequency beaming which is common among this category of speaker. The result is a coaxial speaker with extremely consistent 90deg. coverage on a broadband basis.

Component features include a Kevlar-reinforced low frequency cone for reliability, well-damped surround for smooth frequency response, high temperature 75 mm (3 in) voice coil and a reduced distortion design through saturated-gap magnet geometry. The high efficiency medium-format high compression driver features a radial slot phase plug for a smooth, extended high frequency response, along with a neodymium magnet for low installation weight.

The Control 322CT is easy to install. The innovative EZRail feature built into the metal baffle temporarily holds one side of the speaker baffle in place until the installer can affix the baffle to the backcan with screws. 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.
