Crown PZM6D
Mic,Black,Freq Response Switch


The Crown PZM-6D is a Pressure Zone Microphone, designed for professional recording, sound reinforcement and broadcasting.  It has many applications, from miking full orchestras or individual musical instruments to security or teleconferencing.  The PZM-6D has a switchable dual frequency response: rising (R) or flat (F). The “rising” position adds brilliance. This makes it useful wherever a crisp attack is desired, such as on percussion, drums, or piano. The user can get a bright sound without boosting high frequencies on the recording console; the result is lower noise. The “flat” position provides a smooth, flat, high-frequency response for natural sound reproduction. PZM-6D has a smaller plate. Its low profile, unobtrusive appearance is appreciated in conference rooms, as well as on television, film and video productions. When suspended over an orchestra on a clear panel, the PZM-6D practially disappears. Its miniature, permanently attached cable also reduces visual clutter.  The output is a male 3-pin XLRtype, balanced and low impedance, which permits long cable runs without hum pickup or high-frequency loss.  Like other Pressure Zone Microphones, the PZM-6D utilize the Pressure Recording Process in which a miniature condenser microphone capsule is positioned very close to a sound-reflecting plate or boundary. The capsule is mounted in the “Pressure Zone” just above the boundary, a region where sound coming directly from the sound source combines in phase with sound reflected off the boundary. The benefits are excellent clarity and "reach," a hemispherical polar pattern, uncolored off-axis response, and a wide smooth frequency response free of phase interference.

  • Transducer: Electret condenser.
  • Frequency response: 20 Hz to 20 kHz.
  • Polar pattern: Hemispherical when used on a floor,wall or ceiling.
  • Open circuit sensitivity: 7 mV/Pa* (–43 dB re 1 volt/Pa).
  • Power sensitivity: –43 dB re 1 mW/Pa. EIA sensitivity –135 dBm.
  • Impedance: 240 ohms, balanced. Recommended minimum load impedance 1000 ohms.
  • Self-noise: 20 dB equivalent sound pressure level,A-weighted.
  • S/N ratio: 74 dB at 94 dB SPL.
  • Maximum Sound Pressure Level: 150 dB SPL at the microphone produces 3% THD.
  • Polarity: Positive pressure on the diaphragm produces positive voltage on pin 2 with respect to pin 3 of the output connector.
