I don't know if there is anyone in here that has seen both but I always wondered why that JBL Home says that the Control 1Xtremes use 4in drivers when the woofer is the same size as the Control 1 from pro. The pro version says its 5" 1/4.
I did noticed that there is a speaker called Control ONE and the specs there say it's 5" 1/4 even it's the exact same speakers as the Xtremes. But I would like to know if both the orginal Control 1 from pro is the same size as the Xtremes I have. From what I see they are exactly the same even the enclosures as the same size.

You're probably looking at the surround, which is not the same thing as the driver itself. Look around on google for a diagram of a speaker driver, and all its various parts -- spider, etc. -- and then maybe it'll make more sense. Perhaps wikipedia?

He managed to be annoying and offensive while still maintaining a plausible level of stupidity, that made you occasionally want to give him advice and "hope" that he was a real poster.... but by this thread it's clear that he is just a troll....

SVI's sitting at the bar, minding his own business, and quaffing a cold one.

A couple of the AR regulars are sitting at a nearby table pointing and laughing at him and saying how stupid he is. One gets up and says "Watch this", and walks over to SVI and says, "Hey Spanky, have you seen Ben?.", to which SVI replies "Ben Who?". The AR regular says "Bend over and kiss my butt!" and goes back to the table laughing.

A little bit later, the AR regulars start talking about SVI again and another one says "I wonder if he's stupid enough to fall for it again?" So, he gets up, walks over to SVI and says, "Hey Spanky, have you seen Ben?", to which SVI again replies "Ben Who?". The AR regular says "Bend over and kiss my butt!" and goes back to the table laughing harder than before. Now the whole bar is rolling.

Finally, some guy that looks like a coconut head walks in and sits down next to a visibly perturbed SVI. He says "What's the matter, Spanky?" Spanky says "Those AR guys are always picking on me. They keep coming over and asking if I've seen some guy named Ben. When I ask "Ben Who", they say "bend over anfd kiss my butt. They did it to me twice so far."

Coconut head says, "Well, let's get 'em back. You go over to their table and ask them if they've seem Eileen. when they ask "Eileen who", you answer "Eileen over and YOU kiss MY butt!. See?"

SVI says "That's great" and gets up, walks confidently over to the AR table and taps the first guy on the shoulder and, as planned, says "Have you seen Eileen?" The AR Regular turns, looks at Spanky and says "Yeah, she's with Ben."

SVI replies "Ben who?"

that is quite big, and quite useless today if you ask me... and most likely, it won't fit in spanky's room, and even if it does, he's going to need a new amp...

Hey, you guys do realize you're violating the rules of this forum...the one about slagging other forum members...

Quit reacting so violently (in fact, quit reacting at all), and he'll quit trolling you guys. You keep giving him exactly what he wants, and he'll keep coming back and getting you guys some more.

All you guys' whining is more annoying than his posts.

I like Spanky. I don't find his posts to be annoying and I hope that he does not stop posting. It gives us something to whine about. And there's always that chance that he will catch on. Think how great that would be. To actually see him grow up in front of us? So cool.

As a member and not as a moderator I agree that if his posts are upsetting ignore them. He is kinder to us than we are to him. We have had other members who are stuck on product lines as he is on JBL. I have had fun at his expense and I have enjoyed some of the clever responses to his questions. I think I will just post if I have an answer to his questions.

That is a very astute observation. I've always suggested that Spanky knows what he is doing and is "taking the piss" to borrow a phrase from the Brits. But, what if he is not?

I've been on boards where mob rules, i.e. "Ban him!" and they suck. But Spanky has never been mean to my knowledge. Has never tried to sell anyone any thing. And has never flamed anyone. To me, just taking the piss is not flaming or spamming. And if he's for real, then have some compassion that he is not as sophisticated as you.

And for the record, this is the guy that has gone from crappy powered "monitors" to a proper receiver and set of bookshelves and sub. So, he is making some progress.

I agree with this post.... This is why I keep saying that Spanky is the greatest troll to infest this site.....

As much I am willing to join in with the calls of "Ban Spanky", I know that there really is no solid grounds for banning him... He plays his cards perfectly... "He's nicer to us than we are to him".... And posting stupid questions is not grounds for banning...

So as hard as it for me to say this... I think Spanky is a genius, who's just taking a piss out of us....

Actually the best speakers he had where some JBL S26's which actually sounded pretty darn good when mated with a good amp. Not world class but far superior to all the crap he is looking at now. But he sold them for some strange reason. IMO he has taken major steps backwards in quality.

But he sold them for some strange reason. IMO he has taken major steps backwards in quality.Well the biggest reason why I sold the S26 is since I needed some money for other things like with Adam etc. That's why I'am looking for speakers that are very cheap so then I have left over money for other stuff. Right now a local store is selling the JBL Control ONE for $80 so that's a good deal. I am also thinking to get the Sony SS-MB350H and I listened to them and they both sounded really good to me. I just need time to think which speaker out of the two I should get. I did listen to all of the Best Buy speakers like Bose and Insignia and Klipsch and Athena's but the most flattest sounding speakers were the Sonys like the SS-MB350H that was for $100 pair and second is the Control ONE. I like sounds that are flat because then I can hear all parts of my music well since I listen to music like Jazz etc. I also liked the SS-MB350H was because it was a 3-way speaker So sounds are divided better and more flatter. Overall I like speakers that are not too bassy and not too much highs I like even amount of lows and mids and highs and the Sony one sounded exactly like that.

thats what we do, and you can too, if you ever save up some money (more that $200) we can guide you and help you pick out the perfect speakers.

I use 4 of them as the mains in my home theater; two next to each other on each side. They do have a rather neutral sound and blend well with the rest of that speaker series. They are very good for the dirt cheap price and some of us need to leave the elitist attitude at the door even if SVI is just jerking with us. But anyway I want to move them to my bedroom and get 4 more of the SS-550H(can't remember the exact model). They are only about $100 plus tax and shipping at B&H.com. For about 150 after shipping you simply can't complain about these speakers and they sound a little better than the 350s. Although, I find that this Sony line sounds better in multi-channel formats and really don't lend themself that well to stereo playback. Maybe it is just me but hearing 7 channel versus regular stereo in a wide range of music is just so much more superior. Anyhow, I'm happy with Sony in this case. If only that PS3 was a bit more lovable.

For $150 I would say you can do a bit better than the Sonys. Having heard them myself they might sound neutral to the inexperienced listener because the highs and lows fall off rather early and give the speaker a lack of clarity and definition.


Although, I find that this Sony line sounds better in multi-channel formats and really don't lend themself that well to stereo playback.
Common mistake made by people buying low quality gear. You lose the definition of the stereo channels but you gain a "fullness" in the sound that can't be reproduced by just two of the low quality speakers.


Maybe it is just me but hearing 7 channel versus regular stereo in a wide range of music is just so much more superior.
That's because your speakers suck. No, seriously.
