JBL Offers a Life Line with New Loudspeaker

JBL Professional introduced the Control 25AV-LS loudspeaker for applications where the music playback loudspeaker system also serves as the life safety system. The new loudspeaker is UL listed under UL1480/UUMW as a Fire Protective Signaling Speaker.

The Control 25AV-LS is based on the Control 25AV loudspeaker and features a 60-watt multi-tap transformer with 8-ohm bypass, InvisiBall mounting, and a magnetically shielded woofer. System integrators can use the model for fire alarm, voice evacuation, or life-safety applications that require a professional-quality compact loudspeaker, as well as in other applications where code may require surface-mount speakers to carry a UL listing.

"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 and a woofer coated in polypropylene. Terminating the woofer's circumference in JBL's WeatherEdge, a seamless butyl rubber extension of the woofer surround, protects critical transducer elements, says the company. The polycarbonate tweeter diaphragm is reinforced with a thin film of titanium for added rigidity and endurance. Nickel/zinc rust-resistant terminals form a secure input connection, while JBL's SonicGuard overload protection is virtually inaudible to the listener.
