Hi guys just asking for your views on purchasing JBL control 1 speakers to use as a front pair to use with mission 75c centre speaker and mission 7ds rears with a sub any thoughts amp is sony av 1070 thanks
I used a pair of Control 1s with my Sony STRBD940 for a couple of years and they were great. I had a JBL Mr Centre to go with them. Suppose it depends how the sound matches your Mission centre. If you do use them they'll need proper stands to be at their best.
The Control 1s are absolutely fantastic studio monitor speakers, but i wouldn't use them as fronts. For a start they use completely different cone types to the Missions- they'll most probably have a titanium dome or plastic cone tweeter (depending on whether is a Control 1x or 1g etc) whereas the Missions have soft fabric dome and the JBLs use paper woofers whereas the Missions use polypropelene. Get my jist?

Look for second hand Mission 751/752/753 on ebay or hififorsale instead. Should find some for £100-250
