JBL Professional has announced that all five models in its Control 40 Series of in-ceiling loudspeakers have earned a UL listing under UL1480 and UL2043.
“We introduced the Control 40 Series last year as the systems integrator’s go-to speaker line for a wide variety of everyday premium applications,” said Rick Kamlet, Senior Director, Commercial Installed Sound, JBL Professional.
“Now having earned its UL listing, the Control 40 Series joins the Control 24/26/19, the Control Micros, Control 200 Series and the Control 300 Series as a broad lineup of UL listed in-ceiling loudspeaker choices for designers and installers.”
The Control Contractor 40 Series features JBL’s proprietary Conical Radiation Boundary Integrator (RBI), adapted from JBL’s VERTEC Series line array loudspeakers. This unique in-ceiling innovation combines a large-diameter, high-frequency waveguide and low-frequency projection apertures that work together to provide extremely consistent pattern control and coverage.
The Control 47C/T provides extended bass performance with a wide 120 degrees of coverage (consistent over a wide bandwidth) that allows fewer speakers to cover a large space. The Control 47LP is a low-profile version for areas with shallow clearance above the ceiling, or where there are obstructions is some locations.
The Control 47HC is a narrow coverage model for difficult acoustic spaces and high-ceiling areas. Rounding out the lineup are the Control 40CS/T, a subwoofer with built-in passive crossover, and the Control 42C, an ultra-compact, in-ceiling satellite loudspeaker.
