Procella Audio just announced today the introduction of a new main and surround channel speaker, the P6V. This two-way L/C/R and surround channel speaker include a 1-inch high frequency compression driver mounted on a constant directivity waveguide, a high-output 6.5 inch woofer and a so-called Procella Identical Voice crossover. Spec’d with a dynamic range playback of 24bit/96KHz program material at reference level, the P6V claims a high output, 6.5-inch woofer driver and a 1-inch compression driver for high frequencies. Procella says it produces THX cinema reference-level playback (105 dB continuous) at listening distances equivalent to the requirements for THX Ultra home cinema speakers, and does so without dynamic compression in the highs. This enables the speaker to be used a main or surround channel speaker in small to medium sized home cinemas and professional audio environments. Its bass extension meets the requirements for the 80 Hz Home THX standard subwoofer crossover point.
The P6V’s size (18.5″/470mm high x 11.4″/290mm wide) and depth (4.9″/125mm) make the speaker possible for wall mount placement, either as a surround speaker, main speaker next to a flat-panel display or behind an acoustically transparent screen.
It carries a list price of $1,599 each and is now shipping. Complete specs are here.
