Overload Protection Circuitry

The Control® 23T is the most compact of JBL Professional’s Control Contractor Series indoor/outdoor loudspeakers making it a perfect choice for patios, foyers, retail or other applications where foreground/background music and paging are required, with minimum aesthetic impact. The Control 23T can be used in either 70.7V or 100V distributed-line sound systems. The single power tap is 5W at 70.7V and 10W at 100V.

The unique InvisiBall mounting hardware is included in each system and makes short work of permanent installation. In addition to rapid installation, the InvisiBall mounting method adds the benefit of vertical rotation of up to 37° and horizontal rotation of up to 44°. Because InvisiBall adjustments are made through a hidden access behind the logo badge, the grill never needs to be removed, while providing a high degree of theft deterence. The Control® 23T readily accepts a variety of paints and finishes to match any decor.

Weather resistance is maximized by coating the woofer cone in polypropylene and terminating its circumference in JBL’s WeatherEdge™, a seamless, rubberized extension of the woofer surround that provides added protection to critical transducer elements. The polycarbonate tweeter diaphragm is reinforced with a thin film of titanium for added rigidity and endurance against sun, salt and moisture. Zinc plated grilles resist rusting in the harshest conditions. Available in black (Control 23T) and white (Control 23T-WH).

Control® 23T Ultra-Compact Indoor/Outdoor Background/Foreground Speaker Frequency Response with 70.7V input, in half-space (2, solid line) and full-space (4, dotted line), For 100V input, raise curve 3 dB. Beamwidth Directivity Index,Q Horizontal Off Axis Frequency Response Vertical Off Axis Frequency Response (up) Vertical Off Axis Frequency Response (down) Horizontal 1/3 Octave Polars Architectural Specifications: The loudspeaker shall consist of a 90mm (3-1/2 in) low frequency transducer, 13 mm (1/2 in) high frequency transducer, and frequency dividing network installed in a ported enclosure. The low frequency voice coil shall be 19 mm (3/4 in) in diameter. Performance specifications of a typical production unit shall be as follows: Usable frequency response shall extend from 100 Hz to 21 kHz (10 dB below rated sensitivity, in half-space, with no external equalization). The loudspeaker shall be equipped with a transformer for use in either 70.7 or 100V distributed-line sound systems. The tap shall be nominally 5W @ 70.7V and 10W @ 100V. The frequency dividing network shall have a crossover frequency of 3.5 kHz. Rated power capacity of the coimponents and network shall be at least 50 watts continuous program power, defined as 3dB above a test signal of filtered random noise conforming to international standard IEC268-5 (shaped pink noise with a peak-to-average ratio of 6dB), for 100 continuous hours duration. The system shall be protected against damage from occassional overpowering via full range series lamps that limits the power to the network and transducers.
