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 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.
