The unique InvisiBall mounting hardware is included 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. In addition, that provides a high degree of theft deterrence. 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 Kapton voice coil former and high-temperature voice coil wire ensure excellent sensitivity and high power handling, while also providing stable performance under long-term high-power working conditions. The pure butyl rubber surround delivers clean sound and robust operation. JBL’s WeatherEdge is 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 consistent off-axis performance, while an FEA-optimized 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 softened PEI diaphragm delivers a smooth and pure high frequency sound quality. The 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 outdoors 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, high-grade powder coating for rust resistance. The optional MTC-23WMG-1 WeatherMax grilles are available for especially difficult environments and to break up driving rain. Connection is made via weather-capable screw-down terminals. The optional MTC-PC2 and MTC-PC3 panel covers are available to further protect the terminal compartment, providing a water-tight sealed gland-nut entrance (when used with round-jacketed cable within the specified diameter range).
The speaker provides a very natural sound character. The system is capable of handling 50 Watts continuous pink noise (100 Watts program) at its 8 ohm setting and is also equipped with a built-in 15 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 103 dB.
The Control 23-1 readily accepts a variety of paints and finishes to match any décor.
