Backnang, Germany (June 16, 2010)–Replacing d&b audiotechnik’s E3 speaker is the E6, a multipurpose cabinet employing an integrated 6.5/1-inch exit coaxial driver design with neodymium magnet and constant-directivity horn loading.
The horn, with its 100 x 55-degree dispersion pattern, can be rotated through 90 degrees, providing a 55 x 100-degree pattern, without the use of tools.
The E6 is a two-way design with a built-in passive crossover network, and its frequency response extends from 85 Hz to above 18 kHz. The cabinet shape allows use either in a vertical or horizontal orientation as well as deployment as a discreet stage monitor. Weighing in at 5 kg and with smaller dimensions than the E3, it produces a maximum SPL of 123 dB when powered by the d&b D12 amplifier.
Werner Bayer, d&b product manager, comments, “To replace a product as established as the E3 takes great trust and, from what I have seen, people have that trust.”
