6-1/2" (165mm) aluminum cone for great bass response
The L226C boasts an impressive 6-1/2" (165mm) aluminum cone woofer and gives you deep, room-rocking bass. It may be hard for people to see exactly where the awesome sound is coming from. But they’ll sure hear it and feel it.
Detailed high-frequency sound reproduction
The L226C’s thin but rigid 1-inch (25-millimeter) pure titanium-laminate tweeter delivers accurate, clear, crisp high-frequency response, even when the volume is way up. And it’s a swivel-mount tweeter, giving you the freedom to direct the high frequencies wherever you like.
Sit-anywhere Elliptical Oblate Spheroidal™ (EOS) waveguide sound
Elliptical Oblate Spheroidal™ (EOS) waveguides, originally developed for JBL® Professional LSR studio monitors, disperse the L226C’s clean, high-frequency sound precisely across a wide listening area. There’s no “sweet spot.” Sit wherever you want.
Low profile and easy installation
With its space-saving design – only 4-1/8" (104mm) mounting depth – and a weight of only 3-1/2 pounds (1.6 kilograms), the JBL® L226C speaker gives you maximum installation flexibility. The L226C includes a cutting template and integrated dog-ear brackets for retrofit applications. And rough-in frames are available for new construction.
Paint the white frame and grille to match the ceiling
Both the frame and the grille of the JBL® L226C speaker can be painted to blend into your ceiling. The JBL® L226C is unobtrusive – until you turn it on.
