The FP6 is a premium, ultra-compact point-source loudspeaker designed for short-throw applications which require superb sonic performance and coverage consistency from an extremely small enclosure. With full-frequency response and exceptional output capabilities for its size, it is ideal for installation in small spaces and areas which require spot and fill coverage.
Its multi-angle enclosure with flexible mounting options makes for discreet integration within architectural spaces — from churches, museums and galleries to theatres, bars and restaurants. When supplemented by a subwoofer, it is an excellent choice for premium, short-throw corporate AV events and music playback systems. Being both portable and surprisingly powerful for its size, it can also be used as a fill loudspeaker within a larger touring or installed sound system.
The FP6 is a two-way passive loudspeaker featuring a high-specification 6” LF driver and a 0.7” exit HF driver with a 1.4” diameter high-temperature polymer dome. It delivers an impressive maximum SPL of 119dB peak and has a well-defined dispersion pattern of 100° horizontal x 80° vertical, with horizontal constant directivity characteristics.
Its exemplary dispersion pattern is achieved by incorporating a dedicated waveguide within the magnet structure which merges into a specially shaped, asymmetric LF cone. With the waveguide and cone combining to form the HF horn, this innovative arrangement avoids a separate ‘add-on’ horn which would impede the wavefront from the cone and cause irregularities in the frequency response. It also improves on conventional through-the-pole coaxial designs, which can suffer from high frequency beaming.
The FP6’s durable birch plywood enclosure is finished in hardwearing textured paint and incorporates multiple threaded inserts that facilitate a wide range of mounting options and accessories — including yoke, wall bracket, truss and mic stand mounting. A steel grille with a triple-layer polyester backing presents a discreet professional appearance while resisting dust and water ingress to IP54 environmental rating.
The FP6 can be used in either portrait or landscape orientation, including use as a discreet stage monitor, by rotating the driver within the enclosure. To make this quick and easy, the grille is secured by proprietary quick-release latches, and the driver fixed to the baffle by means of captive thumbwheels. Loosening these by hand allows the driver to be quickly rotated through 90° and re-tightened.
FP6 can be powered by iKON amplifiers, or by VIA amplifiers when used with a DX4.0 controller, or alternatively a DX0.4 or DX0.6 controller. FP6 systems can be modelled in 3D using Display 3 design and prediction software.
