Community D6
Distributed Design 6.5" 2-Way High Output Coaxial Ceiling Speaker

OUR PART #  D6


Community's powerful and versatile Distributed Design D6 provides high quality paging and musical performance suitable for retail environments, restaurants, resorts, and numerous other applications where the importance of sonic quality cannot be ignored. Particularly effective when supported by the D10SUB, a D6 system is capable of meeting demanding needs at a cost usually associated with much smaller loudspeakers.

Uniform voicing means that the D6 can be combined with both smaller and larger models from the Distributed Design Series without compromising consistency from zone to zone. The genuine coaxial design uses separate magnets for the LF and HF drivers for reduced distortion and industry-leading sensitivity, thereby permitting 3 dB to 6 dB greater output level while requiring half the amplification power of competing products.

The proprietary Tru-Phase™ waveguide and perfectly centered driver produce a consistently wide conical polar response up to 16 kHz. Community’s patented Carbon Ring Cone Technology™ increases the effective cone area to further reduce distortion while reinforcing the cone for improved durability.

Exclusive Drop-Stop™ and Twist-Assist™ tabs allow single-handed placement to speed installation and reduce labor time. Drop-Stop’s spring-loaded legs support the back can on the included tile rails and snap-on C-ring, so that the installer no longer needs to hold the can against the tile while tightening the clamps. Twist-Assist performs a similar function for the baffle assembly: when the loudspeaker back cans are pre-installed into a conduit system for termination at a later date, a simple twist of the baffle into the back can brings the Twist-Assist clips together, supporting the baffle assembly while the installer fastens the screws.

The front-face wattage selector switch enables quick adjustment of 70V/100V tap levels. A variety of installation accessories are available to accommodate different ceiling materials. The D6 face-only assembly and back can are also available for separate purchase.
