d&b audiotechnik M6 Monitor

2-way stage monitor


The d&b audiotechnik M6 Monitor 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 an 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.
