Proficient Adds Entry-Level In-Ceiling Speaker


Riverside, Calif. - Proficient Audio launched an inexpensive, entry-level 6.5-inch ceiling speaker to meet dealer requests.

The two-way 8-ohm C-600, priced at $130/pair, is Proficient's lowest priced in-ceiling speaker to date. It's designed for for dealers who "have been telling us that it's difficult for them to sell a budget speaker that doesn't have good sound quality," said president Keith Marshall. To create such a speaker, Proficient used polypropylene cone material, which is stiff yet light and delivers good bass with low distortion, Marshall said. The C600's 0.5-inch fixed-position polyethylene dome tweeter is light, fast and features wide dispersion, he added.


The speaker is rated to handle maximum power of 75 watts, and it delivers a frequency response of 55Hz to 20kHz with a high sensitivity of 89dB 1W/1m.
