Soon, almost all of your electronics will be mounted on the wall. It’s great that you finally have room for that giant La-Z-Boy with real massaging action, but a wall full of wires doesn’t exactly create a relaxed atmosphere. After all, just because it’s on the wall, doesn’t mean it’s art.
Enter JBL‘s On Air Control 2.4G, a pair of wall-mountable loudspeakers that incorporate a wireless transceiver and amplifier, a transmitter/receiver module, and a remote control.
The system is designed for a slew of wireless-speaker applications, including use as the surround channels in a multichannel home theater, as a second-room music system, for computer gaming or home office use—or just to make a little extra room for that La-Z-Boy.
The On Air Control 2.4G utilizes the 2.4GHz frequency range for interference-free transmission, and the transmitter/receiver module can be used with up to two pairs of JBL On Air speakers. The speakers feature 30 watts of built-in amplification, a mini-jack input, and a subwoofer output that enables the speakers to be used as part of a 2.1-channel satellite/ subwoofer audio system.
