Providing remarkable versatility for a broad scope of applications, JBL Professional is showcasing the ControlA® CRV loudspeaker at PLASA 2009. The Control CRV offers numerous mounting options and a wide range of configurations, providing an endless variety of solutions in terms of coverage, appearance and mounting.
Immediately noticeable is the Control CRV’s unique, contemporary, quarter-round design that makes a modern design statement, adding to any venue’s visual aesthetics in either a wall-mounted or corner-mounted configuration. In addition, this sleek appearance serves a notable functional purpose, as the Control CRV is combinable into half-round, three-quarter-round or a full, 360-degree round arc cluster that is suspendable from the ceiling via a fan pole assembly. A single Control CRV mounted at a wall-wall or wall-ceiling junction physically curves across the junction, acoustically coupling with the adjacent surfaces, widening the sound field, and producing an increased sense of sonic spaciousness.
A multi-tap, 30-Watt transformer allows for use on 70V or 100V distributed speaker lines, providing the capability to run multiple speakers on a single amplifier channel as well as individual level taps for each speaker and the ability to be connected via long cable runs. Available in either black or white, both models have a high level of weather resistance, allowing the speakers to be located either indoors or outdoors. The Control CRV is ideal for a wide variety of professional applications such as retail stores, restaurants, music cafes, outdoor patios, hotels, and anywhere that a high design loudspeaker with a 70V/100V transformer and indoor/outdoor capability is required.
The 75 Watts continuous pink noise power handling (300 Watts peak) and dual 4-inch Polyplasâ„¢ woofers provide superb sound quality, offering a frequency range of 80 Hz-20 kHz.
“With the Control CRV, the contemporary design, configurability — and of course, excellent sound quality — give designers and integrators a great range of versatility from one loudspeaker,”? said Rick Kamlet,
