JBL - Control 85M 5 1/2” Two-Way Co-axial Mushroom Landscape Speaker Each
JBL Control 85M 5 1/2” Two-Way Co-axial Mushroom Landscape Speaker Each
Two-Way 5.25 inch (135mm) Coaxial Mushroom Landscape Speaker
Designed for outdoor applications, the highly weather resistant Control 80 Series Landscape speakers provide excellent full-range sound quality and 360 degree coverage.
Its compact size allows the speaker to blend into landscaping and
shrubbery, while its tough hunter green polyethylene enclosure resists
abuse from lawn care equipment and the elements. The enclosure color
extends throughout the material so the speaker will maintain color even
when scraped or scratched.
The two part enclosure is designed to open with a twist for wiring
and then close securely. The bottom base section of the enclosure
can be pre-installed and then wired to the top speaker section of the
enclosure. When assembled, the bottom base section becomes a
fully isolated chamber, keeping the speaker and transformer (in the
speaker section) highly isolated from the possibility of intruding
Multiple locations on the bottom and sides are provided
for the mounting of the exterior gland nut (installed by drilling a 22
mm (0.875 in, 7/8 in) diameter hole in the chosen location), and a
second gland nut is positioned between the bottom base and the top
speaker sections, to keep the speaker system highly weather tight.
The 135 mm (5.25 in) diameter low-frequency driver features a Kapton
former with 35.5 mm (1.4 in) voice coil for high power handling and
superior long term reliability. The polypropylene cone and polyurethane
surround provide high strength and superior moisture resistance. The
19 mm (0.75 in) high frequency driver utilizes a polyetherimide dome,
providing high rigidity, strength, and high temperature resistance. The
high slope crossover provides natural sonic character and SonicGuard™
protected HF driver ensures long-term reliability from occasional
In addition, the speaker contains a high-quality 30 Watt multi-tap
transformer for use on 70V or 100V distributed loudspeaker lines, and
is switchable for 8 ohm voice-coil direct operation. The speaker handles
80 Watts Continuous Pink Noise (160W Program, 320W Peak) in the
8 ohm mode. The Control 85M is UL certified, per UL1480.
