Control NOW AW


300-watt, dual 4" (100mm) two-way all-weather, bookshelf/wall-mountable loudspeaker with 3/4" titanium-laminate tweeter


A 90-degree speaker that can go nearly anywhere, and sound gorgeous everywhere.

JBL has a long history of filling large spaces like movie theaters, concert arenas and sports stadiums with full, 360-degree sound. But this same professional sound can be achieved in your own home, thanks to the small, compact and versatile JBL Control NOW AW two-way speaker. With its 90-degree arc, it may be the most flexible loudspeaker our engineers have ever developed. It can be placed on a bookshelf, mounted on a wall or placed outside – it’s the perfect companion to your patio or backyard. You can even arrange three speakers to bend around a corner and send full-range sound through two adjacent rooms or suspend a circle of four speakers overhead using standard ceiling-fan hardware (not included). The speaker’s compact size – only 5 inches (125 millimeters) tall and 14-5/16 inches (364 millimeters) wide – lets it fit almost anywhere. So it can be used in traditional stereo setup, as a home theater speaker or for whole-house music systems. It’s ready to rock, too, with dual 4-inch (100-millimeter) low-frequency drivers, a 3/4-inch (19-millimeter), titanium-laminate tweeter and 300 watts peak power handling. It’s also magnetically shielded, so it won’t interfere with your TV. And its frequency range extends past the edge of human hearing to catch every musical nuance. Physically handsome and sonically superb, JBL Control NOW AW speakers make a superb addition to virtually any home. The one thing we have yet to figure out, however, is how creative you’ll get when installing it.
