Great value and low-cost option
by Matt Thompson from Ridgefield, WAThese JBL Control 2P powered monitors fill a unique niche in the market, offering a great value as an extremely low-cost option. I use them as computer speakers just for listening to music (not reco... read more [+]rding), and have recommended them to several friends for that application. With a decent audio interface, such as the M-Audio Audiophile 2496 PCI card I use, these JBL's far outperform anything generally considered to be a computer speaker. Unlike most other powered monitors, these include a single volume control for the pair; a significant convenience when they are used as computer speakers.

Music Background: I am an audio enthusiast who has had a critical interest in AV hardware for over two decades.
The single-star rating for this product by one user on this site is absurd. It is more indicative of an unrealistic expectation than of this product's performance-per-dollar. The only cautionary comment I can make is in reference to the grilles - I think they are made of steel, but they are also necessarily a mesh that will be damaged if abused. All other aspects of their design and construction are impressively robust.
If your budget tops-out around cost of this product, then I recommend you buy this set now, fully confident that these JBL Control 2Ps will outperform all of your other options.
If you can afford to spend more (particularly if you need more of a reference monitor to support recording) then I would recommend you consider a higher-end product like those from KRK Systems. Sweetwater has a terrific selection that is sure to satisfy any need and budget.

Each and every install are almost 2yrs old, and I have personally inspected the speakers. None show any weathering, or problems, also every client has been very pleased with the products reliability, and sound quality.
So this actually counts as 5, four star ratings! close [-]
For an introductory set of studio monitors, you can't go wrong with the Control 2Ps! Their small size belies their quality and clarity, and you'll wonder how you ever lived without them. These are ideal for the "laptop musician" and perfect for anyone who would like an easily transportable set of monitors.
