JBL Controls Airwaves with Wireless Speakers
On Air Control 2.4G wireless speakers get rid of the cord clutter, making them perfect for wall mounting.
January 18, 2007 by Rachel Cericola

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 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.
