Britain’s B&W Loudspeakers has introduced a new, audio/video application loudspeaker, the VM6.
While the company’s VM1 speakers continue to be very successful, they felt a a need for an even higher performing product in this category. Enter the VM-6. The VM-6 is a two-way, ported, wall-mount or stand-mount design, which can be placed in either a vertical or horizontal position.
The wall bracket and table-top stand are first wired with speaker cables and then the speaker is slid into the bracket or stand to provide contact for the audio signals. This allows for tidy cable routing, which keeps the installation clean and modern. The wall bracket also provides for some side-to-side swiveling to increase the available listening angles.
VM-6 incorporates a one-inch aluminum dome Nautilus tweeter with tapered-tube technology, and a five inch Kevlar cone bass/midrange driver that delivers solid bass down to 49Hz (-6dB). These driver elements are based on the same designs found in B&W’s CM-1, which won the coveted EISA (European Imaging and Sound Association) award for speaker of the year 2006.
VM-6 speakers are available in black, pearl white, and silver finishes with complementary grill cloths of black (black finish), white (pearl white) and mid-grey (silver finish).
- Available this month
- Can be wall- or stand-mounted
