New Toys: JBL Professional COL Series Slim Column Loudspeakers

HARMAN Professional Solutions announced the launch of two new JBL Slim Column Loudspeakers. Intended for conference and meeting rooms, lecture halls, retail stores, concourses and transit spaces, the COL600 (24-inch 600 mm) and COL800 (32-inch 800 mm) are slim, low profile cabinets with wide horizontal and narrow vertical coverage.

They have a built-in 10-degree down-tilt to aim the sound at a wider area, while keeping the speaker mounted flush on the wall. 

Multi-tap transformers allow either 70V or 100V distributed speaker lines, plus the speakers are switchable for direct, 8-ohm connection and operation. These speakers can be installed indoors or outdoors and feature an IP54 rating for protection against dust and water. The drivers are water-treated and a cover is included to protect the input terminals.

Available in black or white, the COL600 and COL800 each come with two L-brackets for installing them using either the top or bottom panels. Check the link below for contractor pricing.
