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