  • Wired versus Wireless
    Reviewed by Will777 - March 14, 2021

    I own 3 pairs of these Control X "wired" and 1 pair of the "wireless" version. I like the sound very much of the wired versions. But, the wireless version of this speaker fails to maintain a connection (an association) between the L and R speaker. It appears the "wireless" version of these speakers was so troublesome, JBL stopped selling them. JBL tech support did not know the difference between the Bluetooth radio link and the wireless link between each speaker. Tech support not trained well enough. So, I'm stuck with one non-function wireless pair and 3 wired pairs. Needless to say, nothing with a JBL label on it sounds good if there is a bad experience.

  • Amazing sound and brackets but banana plug fail
    Reviewed by Ed - June 20, 2021

    The quality and sound of these speakers is amazing. The brackets with the ball work well for me I have them mounted on the interior posts or my gazebo and can move them around very easily, I had to tighten them well but didn't have any of the problems mentioned in other reviews. However, the only issue I found with the design is the input connectors.. I was hoping to use banana plugs on both the speakers and the amp but with the way the bracket is mounted I don't understand how the banana plugs are supposed to go in? They're positioned diagonally, and the connection section has a screw maybe meant to be openeda to change the direction of the plugs but it's not mentioned in the manual so didn't bother risking opening them.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • Wonderful sound.
    Reviewed by MGH01 - January 30, 2021

    These speakers sound great and I am please with them except for the wall mount. What were they thinking? A single ball joint, cantilevering a pretty heavy speaker is a poor idea. It simply won’t hold the weight of the speaker for long. I had to add wooden blocks behind them to keep them from sagging. It not a good idea And it should be changed. Still the sound engineers did a great job and I’ll keep these because they really do sound good. I used a small amp to power them and chrome cast for Spotify. Great paring. Nice bass, smooth mids and highs.
