JBL CONTROL HST Wide-Coverage Speaker with 5-1/4" LF, Dual Tweeters and HST Technology
Open Box, we have two available in black
Key Features: c HST Hemispherical Soundfield Technology™ (patent-pending): • Provides extremely wide horizontal coverage that approaches 180°, covering a greater area with fewer speakers. c • Reduces the primary wall reflection, resulting in a flat frequency response and consistent sound character at all listening positions. c Components: 5-1/4" CMMD woofer and two splayed ¾" fluid-cooled tweeters. c 100 Watt power handling in direct 8Ω setting, plus built-in 60 Watt 70V/100V multi-tap transformer. c High fidelity sound character with broad frequency response of 50 Hz – 20 kHz. c Indoor/outdoor; black or white (-WH) color.
The Control HST utilizes JBL’s patent-pending Hemispherical Soundfield Technology™ to achieve extremely wide coverage of the listening space along with eliminating the primary wall reflection that tends to cause inconsistent sound when speakers are attached to a wall. The wide hemispherical soundfield covers from wall to wall, allowing a single speaker to provide high-fidelity full-range sound to a large listening area. This can reduce the number of speakers needed for covering a space, lowering the overall cost for a sound system
