1. Safety precautions
1.1. Information regarding the use of loudspeakers
Potential risk of personal injury
Never stand in the immediate vicinity of loudspeakers driven at a
high level. Professional loudspeaker systems are capable of
causing a sound pressure level detrimental to human health.
Seemingly non-critical sound levels (from approx. 95 dB SPL) can
cause hearing damage if people are exposed to it over a long
period.
In order to prevent accidents when deploying loudspeakers on the
ground or when flown, please take note of the following:
– When setting up the loudspeakers or loudspeaker stands,
make sure they are standing on a firm surface. If you place
several systems on top of one another, use straps to secure
them against movement.
– Only use accessories which have been tested and approved
by d&b for assembly and mobile deployment. Pay attention to
the correct application and maximum load capacity of the
accessories as detailed in our specific "Mounting instructions"
or in our "Flying system and Rigging manuals".
– Ensure that all additional hardware, fixings and fasteners used
for installation or mobile deployment are of an appropriate
size and load safety factor. Pay attention to the manufacturers'
instructions and to the relevant safety guidelines.
– Regularly check the loudspeaker housings and accessories for
visible signs of wear and tear, and replace them when
necessary.
– Regularly check all load bearing bolts in the mounting devices.
Potential risk of material damage
Loudspeakers produce a static magnetic field even if they are not
connected or are not in use. Therefore make sure when erecting
and transporting loudspeakers that they are nowhere near
equipment and objects which may be impaired or damaged by an
external magnetic field. Generally speaking, a distance of 0.5 m
(1.5 ft) from magnetic data carriers (floppy disks, audio and video
tapes, bank cards, etc.) is sufficient; a distance of more than 1 m
(3 ft) may be necessary with computer and video monitors.

2. B6-SUB loudspeaker
2.1. Product description
The B6-SUB is an actively driven, compact, high performance
subwoofer.
The cabinet houses a long excursion 18" neodymium driver in a
bass-reflex design. The frequency response extends from 37 Hz to
140 Hz.
The cabinet is constructed from marine plywood and has an impact
and weather protected PCP (Polyurea Cabinet Protection) finish.
The front of the loudspeaker cabinet is protected by a rigid metal
grill backed by an acoustically transparent foam. Each side panel
incorporates a handle and mounted on the rear panel are four
heavy duty wheels. An M20 threaded flange in the top panel
accepts a loudspeaker stand for the deployment of top cabinets.
Two runners recessed in the bottom panel prevent cabinet
movement and protect the bottom panel against scratching.
Correspondingly shaped recesses in the top panel of the cabinet
prevent cabinet movement when stacking B6-SUBs.
2.2. Connections
The cabinet is fitted with a pair of NLT4 F/M connectors. All four
pins of both connectors are wired in parallel. The B6-SUB uses the
pin assignments 2+/2–. Pins 1+/1– are designated to TOP
cabinets. Using the male connector as the input, the female
connector allows for direct connection to a second cabinet.
The cabinet can be supplied with NL4 or EP5 connectors as an
option.
Pin equivalents of the connector options are listed in the table
below.

5 (SenseDrive)
d&b SenseDrive
The SenseDrive feature within D12 amplifiers enables electrical
compensation for the properties of the loudspeaker cable used.
SenseDrive requires an additional sense wire. SenseDrive is
therefore only available with EP5 connectors and 5-wire cabling
for applicable loudspeakers.
Note: When the D12 is operated in "Mix TOP/SUB mode",
the SenseDrive function is available on the output B connector
only.
d&b LoadMatch
Starting with the D80 amplifier, the LoadMatch function enables
the amplifier to electrically compensate for the properties of the
loudspeaker cable used without the need for an additional sense
wire. For applicable loudspeakers, LoadMatch is therefore
independent of the connector type used.

2.3. Operation
NOTICE!
Only operate d&b loudspeakers with a correctly configured d&b
amplifier, otherwise there is a risk of damaging the loudspeaker
components.

Within applicable amplifiers, the controller setup is available in
Dual Channel or Mix TOP/SUB mode.
2.3.1. Controller settings
For acoustic adjustment the 100 Hz and CSA function can be
selected.
100 Hz circuit
If the 100 Hz circuit is selected, the upper operating frequency of
the system is reduced from 140 Hz to 110 Hz.
It can be used when actively driven B6-SUB subwoofers are used
to supplement TOP cabinets operated in full range mode, for
example in a distributed sound system. The 100 Hz mode can also
be used to compensate for the effect of close coupling between the
B6-SUB and TOP cabinets operated in CUT mode.
CSA circuit
CSA (Cardioid Subwoofer Array) mode enables the combination
of three or multiples of three subwoofer cabinets into an array that
produces exceptional low frequency directivity control.
CSA Stack (Example)
6
The amplifier channel for the center subwoofer of the array, which
is physically pointed to the rear, has CSA selected. The forward
facing cabinets are driven with an amplifier channel set in the
standard mode. The resulting cardioid behavior of the array will
significantly reduce the energy radiated to the rear.

Subwoofer Array, which is available for download at
