Providing remarkable versatility for a broad scope of applications, JBL Professional is showcasing the Control® CRV loudspeaker at PLASA 2009. The Control CRV offers numerous mounting options and a wide range of configurations, providing an endless variety of solutions in terms of coverage, appearance and mounting.
