However, if you have a disability we are here to help you. Please call our disability services phone line at 918-495-0586 during regular business hours and one of our kind and friendly personal shoppers will help you navigate through our website, help conduct advanced searches, help you choose the item you are looking for with the specifications you are seeking, read you the specifications of any item and consult with you about the products themselves. There is no charge for the help of this personal shopper for anyone with a disability.

High Output Indoor/Outdoor Background/Foreground Speaker

The Control® 28-1 is a two-way 8" speaker with rich sonic character, wide coverage, consistent coverage, versatile mounting, and a contemporary highdesign look that fits into a wide range of decors, This makes Control 28-1 an excellent choice for a wide variety of applications, including retail stores, restaurants, health clubs, theme parks, educational facilities, hospitality, music cafes, leisure venues, and anywhere where a top quality high-output indoor/outdoor foreground/background music (and/or paging) speaker is required. The unique InvisiBall mounting hardware is included in with each system, making short work of permanent installation. The InvisiBall mounting method provides a high degree of both vertical and horizontal rotation, and because InvisiBall adjustments are made through a hidden access behind the logo badge, the grille never needs to be removed and there exists a high degree of theft deterrence as well. Integrated M6 mounting points for an optional U-bracket adds to the installation versatility. The LF driver's woven fiberglass cone provides durability and weather capable performance. The light weight high temperature fiberglass voice coil former and high temperature voice coil wire ensures stable performance under longterm high-power working conditions while also providing high sensitivity and high power capability. The pure butyl rubber surround delivers clean sound and ruggedness, while terminating its circumference in JBL's WeatherEdge™, a seamless, rubberized extension of the woofer surround that provides added protection to critical transducer elements. Cone geometry is optimized for smooth frequency response and good off-axis performance, while an FEAoptimized motor construction and linear suspension spider helps to lower harmonic distortion. The HF driver's low viscosity ferro-magnetic fluid increases voice coil cooling for higher long-term power handling. The PEI diaphragm delivers a smooth high frequency sound quality. A light weight Kapton™ voice coil former increases durability while providing better high frequency response extension. All these factors also contribute toward making the driver especially rugged for outdoor and other stressful applications. In addition to the driver designs contributing toward a high degree of weather resistance, the cabinet provides excellent endurance against sun, salt and moisture. Grilles are heavily zinc-plated and finished in a tough, highgrade powder coating for rust resistance, and optional MTC-28WMG-1 WeatherMax™ grilles are available for especially difficult environments and to break up driving rain. Connection is made via weather-capable screw-down terminals, and the optional MTC-PC2 and MTC-PC3 panel covers are available to protect the terminal compartment, providing a water-tight sealed gland-nut entrance (when used with round-jacketed cable within the specified diameter range). The frequency response is extremely smooth, resulting in a very natural sound character, and the response extends down to 45 Hz, providing strong bass capability. The system is capable of handling 120 Watts continuous pink noise (240 Watts program) at its 8 ohm setting and is also equipped with a built-in 60 Watt 70V/100V multi-tap transformer for operation on distributed speaker lines. The combination of high sensitivity and power handling provides high Max SPL of 112 dB. The Control 28-1 readily accepts a variety of paints and finishes to match any décor.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
