This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

JBL Control One Speakers Pair are back on offer, no code needed this time. Well reviewed speakers and comes with a 6 year guarantee and free delivery. Looks to be selling for a lot more elsewhere.

  • Compact design
  • Outstanding JBL performance
  • Easy setup and use
  • Wall-mounting system included



Rugged design for flexible placement
Tough and rugged cabinets make these speakers ideal for commercial and harsher environments. Unlike wooden speakers, these polypropylene moulded speakers won’t rot, crack or deteriorate, making them ideal for use in pool areas, bathrooms, kitchens, conservatories and commercial applications. Roundededges with protective ‘bumpers’ protect both speakers and surroundings.

Powerful sound
JBL have a long history of producing punchy studio monitors and the Control
1 speakers reflect that sound tradition. Titanium-laminate tweeters matched to 100mm woofers provide a bright, forward sound that is ideal for cutting through background noise, again making these speakers ideal for commercial use in bars, cafes and shops.

Magnetic shielding
Magnetic shielding means that these speakers can safely be used at close range to magnetically vulnerable areas. If you have precious reel-to-reel, cassette, video or other taped media, these speakers can safely be placed alongside. The shielding also protects against picture distortion on older CRT TVs and display systems.

Wall-mounts included
Supplied with flexible wall-mounts, the Control Ones can be mounted high up and
out of the way but also angled downwards to direct the sound. Flexible ball joints give a wide range of directionality. Safety wires, in case of mount failure, are also supplied.

You get what you pay for with most things but these are about the best £50 speakers you'll find.
Most speakers also need "breaking in" for a few hours to be at their best.

Yoh, tell me you lot didn't buy these at this price?..... Dickie bird tells me they will be reduced in-store for much less for black friday
would be nice if it had an aux input and a link between two speakers

Only of benefit if you have s store local for in shop purchase though. Otherwise this is as good as it gets.
Same RS were selling them 30 years ago for 50 quid. And still going strong.
How can I connect these to my TV... tv has 3.5mm and optical out.

You couldn't, really. These are passive speakers so you'd need an amp or reciever to power (give audio to) them.
I've got a pair of these (got them free) and was disappointed with the lack of bass. But after reading a review, where it said they're not for bass, it changed my outlook a bit. It said they're used in studios a lot, and if it sounds good through these it'll sound good through anything. Still, I prefer me bass

From your description they sound like crap speakers to be honest.

These aren't standalone stereo speakers, they are not designed to be used alone hence why they have little base. They are designed to accompany other speakers and fit their role well. They are very good speakers for the price and are aimed at people building a 5.1/7.1 or Atmos setup, they are not aimed at people wanting 2 speakers and that's it.

You'll need an amp to drive them but a cheeky solution would be to use something like a lepy.

I built my own 5.1 setup and would not entertain using speakers with no bass for any part of it. However, these are cheap and would do if you needed surrounds at a pinch, so fair enough.

Studios don't need bass?


Studios, which i doubt use these as they are too cheap (i have jbl lsr3's for this), do not want bass in the same way, they want a clean flat response in order to produce a good mix that is both full and can withstand a varied audience, different venues, and eq adjustments

A flat line from 100Hz down to 20Hz (3dB +/-) is a ton of bass. Flat isn't just for studios. These roll-off quite steep around 50-60Hz which isn't suitable without a sub in a studio environment.
I love the flat sound personally, but flat doesn't mean no bass.

When goods are returned to RS, they inspect them and ask why you weren't satisfied. The guy in the shop agreed with me that they weren't very good. At least he was honest. His view was that they are aimed at outdoor use where hi fidelity isn't such an issue. I would agree that for £50, they would make a lot of sense for use on a terrace, but for your bedroom, not so much....

strangely enough, that's not what i was suggesting, but cheers for explaining, i'll try to remember that when mixing on our little old SSL 900W+ later.
By the time you add some amplification (about £50 secondhand), then you might as well cough up the extra for the LSR305s, as they are proper speakers.

If you can only afford this, there are probably plenty of midi systems that sound as good for the same price or less secondhand, plus you get amplifier, CD player, aux.
Brilliant speakers.
This is almost as cheap as having the cone surrounds replaced (to be fair they were 15 years old and it was a teenagers party).
Been using them for years at home and at work.
Virtually bomb proof.

They are designed for nearfield monitoring work, not general large room full frequency range work. They'd probably sound just fine coupled with a subwoofer.

Either buy a sub or position them correctly (distance from wall) for decent bass.
They are brilliant studio monitors at this price.
Can anyone point out a cheap amp or DAC/amp combo for these ? Like smsl ad18 ? And a cheap sub ?

I've got quite an old system (I refuse to let go of) that has pre-amp and power amp. Not really anywhere to connect a sub, except as (b) speakers and may not 'balance out' with the other speakers.

You could use a powered sub, you can get decent ones for fairly cheap second hand on eBay
Can you use them with Yamaha soundbar?
