Control 2P

Way more than I expected.

JBL Control 2P

I have been using the 2P pair for a few weeks now and I like them. Setup and installation was straightforward. I appreciate the variety of input connectors.My 2P master is fed from a Behringer Xenyx 802 mixer which allows a nice flexibility in selecting and controlling which audio source(s) I want to listen to at any given time. I use the mixer/monitor combination in my amateur radio station and I have experienced no interference from my 100 watt HF transmitter to date without having to add external ferrite chokes. Solid, well built, simple, clean appearance: a nice addition to my station.

Sweetwater Advice

Mike Conyers

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.
