“An inexpensive, entry-level 6-inch ceiling speaker is important for our dealers. The everyday price means that a dealer can pick it up any day of the week and not have to wait for a sales promotion,” said Proficient Audio president Keith Marshall. “Dealers have been telling us that it’s difficult for them to sell a budget speaker that doesn’t have good sound quality. We challenged our guys to develop a speaker that sounded great, and we think they succeeded. This little guy punches above its weight class.”

The woofer in the C600 uses a polypropylene cone, well known for being stiff yet light for good bass with low distortion. The C600’s 1/2-inch fixed position polyethylene dome tweeter complements the polypropylene woofer, with wide dispersion.

The 8 Ohm C600 is rated to handle maximum power of 75 watts, and produces a frequency response of 55Hz to 20kHz with a high sensitivity of 89dB 1W/1m. Suggested retail price of the C600 is $130 per pair. The C600 is shipping and available now.
