Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprising Sound - Outdoor Ready! These little speakers have great JBL sound quality and are perfect for outdoor use. The brackets make it easy to mount them in different areas; I think I'll grab another set of these for the garage. I think I was surprised initially at the quality of these speakers, let's hope they last.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sound great so far I have been thinking about replacing my 15+ year-old no-name outdoor speakers for a long time and finally did. These are nice speakers with better bass and much more clear than their predecessors. I am NOT an audiophile, but I've found JBL to be a great balance between price, sound and durability. We'll see if these live up to my expectations as time goes on, but so far so good. I have these out in my screen room connected to my HTPC via a Russound selector and a small Pyle PCA2 (2x40w) amp. I use a separate amp for each room and have a spare set of Control One speakers I am planning to install in the garage.

I have a bose sa3 amplifier and im thinking on installing these speakers with this amp, the amp specs says 100w per channel, would It! Worry with this speakers?  Regards.

Asked by: Sereio
The CONTROL ONE is rated to safely handle 100W of RMS power. Any amplifier that is rated to drive 100W of power or lower and can safely handle a 8-ohm speaker would work beautifully.

Control oneaw speaker are blue tooth speakers?            What about batteries?

Asked by: Kool
The CONTROL ONE AW is not a Bluetooth speaker. This is a passive speaker. This must be connected to an audio/video surround sound receiver in order to function.
