d&b C690 loudspeaker

If you have never heard d&b C690 loudspeakers before then you will be unprepared for the sound that can be produced by such a compact system. Old-fashioned ratings of power in terms of wattage are redundant when trying to describe the sound that is produced by these highly-efficient cabinets. The system is perfectly matched with all components including amplifiers and crossover modules designed specifically to work together. The manufacturers are so confident of the durability of the system that they offer a full 5-year warranty on every part except paint.

The cabinets are very flexible in use, with applications ranging from clubs to full band work, and are essential for theatre and conference work where sound quality is critical. And the best part is perhaps the portability and discreet prescence of the cabinets. No more lugging monster amp-racks upstairs. The system is so efficient at putting the sound out the front that a job that would normally require around 4-5 kilowatts of power is handled easily by two 3u high amplifiers…

The d&b C690 is a full-range, two way bass-reflex enclosure fitted with a 12″ LF driver passively connected to a 2″ HF compression driver which is coupled to a 90 x 40 CD horn. The d&b C690 cabinet is constructed from marine plywood and has an impact-resistant paint finish. The front is protected by a rigid metal grill. The sloping rear side panels of the cabinet allow C690 loudspeakers to be placed side-by-side in a perfect 60 degree array. All our C690 cabinets are flight-cased in pairs.

The d&b C690 is identical to the d&b C6 externally but has a 90 x 40 CD horn which offers a wider dispersion pattern with a shorter throw. The C690 is ideally suited to applications where a single loudspeaker will be used each side, or for near- and mid-field coverage in combination with d&b C6 or C7 loudspeakers.
