Procella Audio is putting another speaker into its lineup—and it’s ready to multitask. The new P6V Loudspeaker is designed to work as your room’s main and surround channels, in a tall profile enclosure.
This two-way L/C/R and surround channel speaker also promises professional performance, via a 1-inch high-frequency compression driver mounted on a Procella-designed constant directivity waveguide, a high-output 6.5 inch woofer, and a Procella Identical Voice crossover.
Promising THX cinema reference-level playback (105dB continuous), the speaker is designed for small- and medium-sized rooms. The company also says that the P6V’s bass extension meets the requirements for the 80Hz Home THX standard subwoofer crossover point.
“The P6V brings a new form factor to the Procella speaker lineup,” said Procella partner Chuck Back. “Using the identical components as our highly successful P6 main/surround speaker, the tall profile of the P6V gives integrators and home cinema enthusiasts a more traditional American look, with a narrow width that enables the speaker to be concealed in architectural columns when used as a surround channel speaker. Delivering the same performance as the original P6, the P6V is a compact high-performance speaker that is an ideal L/C/R speaker in small to medium rooms, as well as a surround in all but the largest home theaters.”
At 18.5 inches high, 11.4 inches wide, and 4.9 inches deep, the P6V can be wall-mounted near a flat panel or behind an acoustically transparent screen. The P6V is available now via authorized Procella dealers and distributors worldwide, with an MSRP of $1,599 each.
