The 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.

D6 [19JUL2011]
D6
TWO-WAY 6.5-INCH HIGH OUTPUT
CEILING LOUDSPEAKER SYSTEM
ARCHITECTURAL SPECIFICATIONS
The loudspeaker system shall be a two-way, full-range ceiling mount system with a 6.5-inch low frequency transducer
with patented Carbon Ring Cone Technology™ and a coaxially mounted 1-inch exit high frequency compression driver.
The drivers shall be connected to an integral crossover with a crossover frequency of 1.2 kHz, with a self-resetting solid
state circuit breaker for driver protection.
The loudspeaker baffle assembly (part no. D6-FO), or face-only, of the loudspeaker system shall be available without the
back can for installations where the back cans are pre-installed and the loudspeaker baffle is inserted at a later date.
The paintable loudspeaker baffle shall be constructed of UL 94V-0 rated ABS material and include Twist-Assist™ face
retainer tabs for easy insertion into the back cans. A paintable steel grille with a durable white powder coat finish shall
be included.
The back can provided with the ceiling loudspeaker system, or sold separately as part no. D6-BC, shall be constructed of
corrosion-resistant zinc plated steel featuring spring loaded Drop-Stop™ installation assistant tabs. The back can shall
include a recessed termination box with a removable locking connector with screw terminals for secure wire termination
with "loop through" ability. Strain relief will be provided by a clamping mechanism for use with plenum rated cable or
conduit.
The system shall have an amplitude response of 80 Hz to 20 kHz (+/- 5dB) and a low impedance (8 ohm) input capability
of 28V RMS. The sensitivity at 1W/1m shall be 94 dB (125 Hz to 12.5 kHz, 1/3 octave bands). The loudspeaker system
shall have a conical coverage pattern of 125 degrees from 500 Hz to 6 kHz. The nominal system impedance shall be 8
ohms (in low impedance setting).
The system shall be equipped with a 60W high performance autoformer for use in 70.7V or 100V distributed audio
systems, with 60W, 30W, 15W and 7.5W taps available in 70.7V distributed systems (60W, 30W and 15W taps available
in 100V distributed systems). An easily accessible front-face tap selector switch located on the front baffle, which is
concealed by the supplied removable grille, shall be available for selecting autoformer and low impedance settings.
A snap-on C-Ring supporting plate and two tile support bridge rails shall be included. The loudspeaker system shall
have a bezel diameter of 11.024 inches (280 mm), a can depth of 6.827 inches (173.4 mm) and weigh 11.1 lbs (5 kg).
There shall be available an optional Can Adapter/Trim Ring for retrofit installations of the loudspeaker system into an
existing larger industry back can or into an existing but oversized ceiling hole up to 11 inches (279 mm) in diameter, and
an optional New Construction Bracket for installing the loudspeaker system in new construction before drywall or plaster
is put into place. An optional Face Adapter Ring to mount the D6-FO loudspeaker baffle into an existing back can for
retrofit installations shall also be available.
The system shall be ETL listed to comply with UL1480, UL2043 and CSA60065 and suitable for use in air handling
spaces per NFPA70 and NFPA90.
The loudspeaker system shall be the Community Distributed Design D6.
