Ultra-compact Satellite Loudspeaker

The Control 42C is an ultra-compact, in-ceiling satellite loudspeaker designed for use with the Control 40CS/T in-ceiling subwoofer. When combined with the Control 40CS/T, the Control 42C offers an extremely natural sounding and powerful subwoofer-satellite system that is perfect for applications requiring wide bandwidth and superior sonic performance with minimal visual impact.

For full-range wide-bandwidth performance, either 2 or 4 Control 42C mid-high speakers can be driven from the Control 40CS/T subwoofer (or from a Control 50S/T surface-mount or Control 60PS/T in-ceiling subwoofer). The crossover for this subwoofer-satellite system is included in the subwoofer, and the system can be driven either low-impedance or from a 70V/100V distributed speaker line.

Features

  • Small, Unobtrusive Size
  • High-Fidelity Sound for Subwoofer-Satellite Systems
  • Elegant industrial design fits any décor

(1200 x 1200 mm; 48 x 48 inch) ceiling tiles in suspended ceiling applications.

  • Can be used with any JBL ceiling speakers having the C-ring/tile-rail mounting system.
    Includes (at product release):
    • Control 24C/CT Micro & 24CT MicroPlus
    • Control 24C/CT, 26C/CT, 19CS/CST
    • Control 47C/T, 47LP, 47HC, 40CS/T, 42C

  • Inverted V-groove provides support to the tile rail grid in case of tile failure while reducing vibration transfer to – and rattling from – ceiling tile grid system.
  • 1.2 mm (0.05 in) metal thickness provides the additional support required by the long span.
