The JBL Control One is a specialized bookshelf speaker released as a downgrade from the Control Monitor. Designed to be used as front or surround speakers in an at-home theater, the Control One (sold in a pair) hosts a two-way configuration with a 4” woofer and a ½” titanium laminate tweeter. Together they handle 200W of energy across a much narrower 50Hz-20kHz frequency range. Like its superior siblings, the Control One bookshelf speakers are also magnetically shielded. Surprisingly, the Control One has received much better praise, perhaps due to its smaller size. Regardless, there is a tendency for the highs to be over-pronounced. Plus the bass is lacking.
