Italian loudspeaker manufacturer FaitalPRO has launched three new models at Prolight+Sound (Hall 3.1, Booth B61).
These are three cone speakers, namely two 6" drivers for medium and low-medium frequencies, and an 18" super woofer for the reproduction of low frequencies.
Today (April 12) it has introduced the new 6PR160 mid-range driver.
Commercial director Flavio Naggi explained: "The 6PR160 mid-range was created solely for the range of voice reproduction where it plays an important role.
It has remarkable weight characteristics, given the neodymium magnet structure and the aluminium basket.
It is a mid-range of the highest level, both for tonal characteristics and performance."
The 6PR160 model is devoted to the mid-frequencies range, although it can also be used as a mid-bass option.
Naggi adds: "It's a nice "full" medium, with an eclectic character that is suitable for many applications and it is easily suited for multi-purpose enclosures in sound reinforcement and PA.
It is excellent in medium and small line arrays, where it usually covers the central position, or in three-way systems where it alone takes care of the entire mid-frequency range."
Equipped with a demodulation ring that reduces distortion on a tonal level, the 6PR160 is able to generate a rather wide angular dispersion and withstand a maximum power of 240 W (120 continuous) with 95 dB of sensitivity. It includes a cloth edge cone, a 37mm coil, a magnet assembly composed of a neodymium ring and a voice coil.
Naggi concluded: "The 6PR160 is definitely one of the best midranges that FaitalPRO offers, both for its tonality, where it diffuses a refined and optimised sound, and because of its discreet elegant extension of the reproduction of low frequencies, with an Fs of 90Hz and a good cone excursion.
“For us it is really a complete and mature midrange, which achieves 95 dB of efficiency and offers a full and clean sound with refined tones.
Attention to detail continues with a lacquered finish, and a three wave treated edge all contained within its compact dimensions.
“Excellent in closed enclosures, we also recommend it in multi-point configuration using two / four drivers in a line array.
“Thanks to a very high EBP of 261 Hz, it can safely be horn loaded giving great intelligibility and power in sound reinforcement."
