Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speakers I have these speakers outside on a covered patio. They sound great for small speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound!!! A month ago I bought this pair of speakers without much expectations, however, the sound quality is unbeat. At first I connected them to an old Pioneer amplifier that I had for several years ago, but when I heard the quality of these speakers I decided to buy a better quality amplifier. After seeing several options, I decided on the Marantz PM5005 and the sound improved to a quality I had not heard before. These speakers are worth every penny that is paid for them. Congratulations JBL for giving us these incredible speakers at an unbeatable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome just awesome! These speakers rock! Bought them over many higher priced speakers and couldn't be happier! Great sound! The bass, the highs and lows, the pure sound is tremendous. Connected them with a Sonos amp and I'm blown away how great they sound. I have lots of friends with outdoor speakers and these sound so much better than ALL of theirs. I would recommend these to everyone! JBL never fails!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound from small speakers Impressed at the sound quality and output of these... paired with a subwoofer they provide a rich full spectrum sound. Lovely discreet design as well, I've mounted them under an outdoor BBQ area.

Hello, are there adapters to mount the Control X on speaker stands, or mic stands?

Asked by: JJSound
Hi! The Control X speaker can be mounted or placed on a stand, shelf or table. Adjustable wall brackets are included for the JBL Control X speakers. The included brackets are for wall-mounting only. Ceiling-mounting these JBL Control X speakers is not recommended, regardless of the bracket used.

What are the dispersion angles of this speaker?

Asked by: SebastianDK
Dispersion angle are usually calculated on high-end and professional speakers, which the Control Xs are not. The Control X are great wall-mountable all-weather speaker which will perform great if placed facing towards the listening position.
