Proficient Audio today introduced the C600, a new in-ceiling speaker that delivers exceptional value in response to dealer installer demands.
"An inexpensive, entry-level 6½-inch ceiling speaker is important for our dealers. The everyday price means that a dealer can pick it up any day of the week and not have to wait for a sales promotion," Proficient Audio president Keith Marshall said. "Dealers have been telling us that it's difficult for them to sell a budget speaker that doesn't have good sound quality. We challenged our guys to develop a speaker that sounded great, and we think they succeeded. This little guy punches above its weight class."
The woofer in the C600 uses a polypropylene cone, well known for being stiff yet light for good bass with low distortion. The C600's ½-inch fixed position polyethylene dome tweeter perfectly complements the polypropylene woofer - it's light, fast and features wide dispersion.
The 8 Ohm C600 is rated to handle maximum power of 75 watts, and produces a frequency response of 55Hz to 20kHz with a high sensitivity of 89dB 1W/1m. Suggested retail price of the C600 is $130 per pair. It's shipping and available now.
