By PSW Staff • February 25, 2009 The new JBL Control 25AV-LS loudspeaker features a 60-watt multi-tap transformer with 8-Ohm bypass, InvisiBall mounting and a magnetically shielded woofer JBL Professional has introduced the new Control 25AV-LS loudspeaker, designed for applications where the music playback loudspeaker system also serves as the life safety system. The Control 25AV-LS (and the Control 25AV-LS-WH in white) is UL listed under UL1480/UUMW as a Fire Protective Signaling Speaker, and is based on the successful Control 25AV loudspeaker. Like the Control 25AV, Control 25AV-LS features a 60-watt multi-tap transformer with 8-Ohm bypass, InvisiBall mounting and a magnetically shielded woofer. “Because we were able to develop the Control 25AV-LS from an existing model in our product lineup, JBL was able to deliver this new loudspeaker to the market very quickly,” said Rick Kamlet, Senior Director, Commercial Installed Sound, JBL Professional. “However, no shortcuts were taken, as the Control 25AV-LS successfully withstood a rigorous safety agency approval process.” The Control 25AV-LS features a paintable aluminum grille. Coating the woofer in polypropylene and terminating its circumference in JBL’s WeatherEdge 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 input connection. JBL’s SonicGuard overload protection is virtually inaudible to the listener, ensuring reliability while providing full fidelity sound.
