Optimal Audio has added the Up 60, a 6-inch two-way passive full-range ceiling speaker, to its portfolio of multi-zone audio solutions. Delivering a consistent conical 110° coverage pattern, the speaker pairs a 6-inch low frequency driver with a 0.7-inch metal dome tweeter and is supplied without a back can for ceilings with a minimum cavity depth. The Up 6O cabinet is suitable for both high quality speech and music reproduction in a range of cost-conscious commercial environments, from hotels and concourses to retail outlets, bars and restaurants.
Each Up 6O can be run on a series of 70V or 100V taps or at low impedance. There’s also a 16Ω setting that allows up to four units to be connected to each amplifier channel at low impedance for a more efficient installation.
“With the entire Up ceiling series, including this latest addition, now shipping, they join Cuboid and Sub to complete our loudspeaker offering,” stated Optimal Audio product manager Al McKinna. “With our amplifiers also shipping and our controllers soon to follow, the Optimal Audio ecosystem of control, amplification and loudspeakers working seamlessly together is now becoming a reality. 2022 will be the year we see Optimal Audio really take off.”
