Product description

The M6 is a 2-way high performance stage monitor employing an integrated 12” LF and 1.3” exit horn loaded HF coaxial driver design that utilizes neodymium magnets. The constant directivity dispersion of 50° x 80° (h x v), which this unique horn provides, delivers an accurately defined coverage area on stage. The M6 can also be operated in 2-Way Active mode. When the cabinet is used in an upright position the M6 serves as a powerful PA loudspeaker with a 80° x 50° dispersion suitable for a variety of applications. For dedicated installation applications the dispersion characteristics of the M6 driver assembly can be rotated. The M6 cabinet is constructed from marine plywood, which incorporates the handles, has an impact resistant paint finish, M10 threaded inserts and a socket to accept loudspeaker stands. The front of the loudspeaker cabinet is protected by a rigid metal grill backed with an acoustically transparent foam. Two runners recessed in the bottom panel protect the cabinet from scratching and prevents movement.


The d&b D20 and 30D amplifiers are recommended to drive the M6. The d&b D80, 10D and D6 can also be used. The M6 monitor can be driven in passive mode, requiring one amplifier channel. Alternatively, for increased headroom, the M6 can be driven in 2-Way active mode, using two channels of the D20, D80, 10D or 30D amplifiers. The recommended amplifiers for the M6 are the d&b D20 and 30D. The d&b D6, D80 and 10D amplifiers can also drive the M6 with the appropriate loudspeaker configuration selected.
