The ultra-compact CDD6 is a two-way passive loudspeaker system designed to fulfil the requirement for full-frequency dynamic performance from a very small enclosure. Featuring a 6.5” (165mm) LF/1” (25mm) HF Coaxial Differential Dispersion driver, its extremely small size and sleek lines make it ideal for visibly-unobtrusive applications. It can also be used as a fill system in conjunction with larger CDD Series models and, with the addition of a CSX subwoofer, can reproduce surprisingly high levels of music program.
The Coaxial Differential Dispersion technology employed in the CDD6 delivers more consistent audience coverage than systems with fixed X° x Y° coverage patterns — projecting relatively more output to the rear of the audience, while having wide horizontal coverage close-up. Its innovative CDD driver achieves ‘point source’ summation of the LF and HF sections — eliminating off-axis variations in frequency response associated with non-coaxial designs. Improving on conventional coaxial designs, which can suffer from high-frequency beaming, the driver features a static waveguide that merges seamlessly with the unique cone shape — maintaining the dispersion pattern out to very high frequencies.
The visually-distinctive enclosure can be used in either horizontal (landscape) or vertical (portrait) orientation, with rotation of the driver easily accomplished by removing the screw-free, protective grille. The curved shape of the enclosure allows it to be surface-mounted close to a wall or ceiling by means of optional wall and ceiling brackets.
Finished in black (RAL9005) or white (RAL9016) as standard, the CDD6 can be supplied in any RAL colour to order.
A full-range, passive two-way system, the CDD6 may be used without a controller. However, the EQ and limiter functions of a controller such as the Martin Audio DX0.5, DX1.5 or DX2, or an MA Series amplifier with onboard DSP will maximise its capabilities. When used with a CSX subwoofer, crossover and EQ functions can either be performed by the DX0.5, DX1.5 and DX2 system controllers, or by an MA Series amplifier with onboard DSP option.
