The E6 is a relatively small high performance multipurpose loudspeaker, employing an integrated coaxial driver. The horn with its 100° x 55° dispersion pattern can easily be rotated through 90° providing a 55° x 100° pattern without the use of tools. This enables deployment of the loudspeaker either vertically or horizontally. Its distinctive cabinet design and extensive range of accessories allow easy deployment in almost any situation, including stage monitoring. It provides a very compact reinforcement solution that inspires through its sound quality and is also perfectly compatible with the larger E8 and E12 loudspeakers. With the addition of an E12X subwoofer or any other E-Series subwoofer it can also reproduce high level music program. The E6 cabinet has an impact resistant paint finish incorporating a handle. The loudspeaker cabinet is also available in Special Colour (SC) and Weather Resistant (WR) options. Both options are supplied with a metal plate in the specified colour covering the handle recess.
The d&b audiotechnik loudspeaker range is designed exclusively for operation with d&b amplifiers. These provide power as well as comprehensive control and protection functions tailored to achieve the performance, reliability and longevity associated with the d&b System approach. The d&b D20 and 30D amplifiers are recommended to drive the E6. The d&b D80, 10D and D6 amplifiers can also be used with the appropriate loudspeaker configuration selected.
