Wonderful sound.
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.

Great Speakers
I have owned JBL speakers for almost 40 years. I have the 4311 studio monitors and the L100t3. The Control X speakers have very accurate sound reproduction, not like some of the others that think bass is the most important frequency. I highly recommend them.

I'm an old JBL fan. I Have a pair of 4312 Control Monitors up front and mounted the
White Control X units on a large beam in my living room. They have excellent sound and visual design I expect from JBL. I also have a pair of JBL Century 100's;
Yes I am a JBL fan.

Excellent sound!!!
A month ago I bought this pair of speakers without much expectations, however, the sound quality is unbeat. At first I connected them to an old Pioneer amplifier that I had for several years ago, but when I heard the quality of these speakers I decided to buy a better quality amplifier. After seeing several options, I decided on the Marantz PM5005 and the sound improved to a quality I had not heard before. These speakers are worth every penny that is paid for them. Congratulations JBL for giving us these incredible speakers at an unbeatable price.

Awesome just awesome!
These speakers rock! Bought them over many higher priced speakers and couldn't be happier! Great sound! The bass, the highs and lows, the pure sound is tremendous. Connected them with a Sonos amp and I'm blown away how great they sound. I have lots of friends with outdoor speakers and these sound so much better than ALL of theirs. I would recommend these to everyone! JBL never fails!

Great sound from small speakers
Impressed at the sound quality and output of these... paired with a subwoofer they provide a rich full spectrum sound. Lovely discreet design as well, I've mounted them under an outdoor BBQ area.
