The Dynaudio Sub 6 - Home Audio Subwoofer is designed to integrate with all our Dynaudio speakers – and it has a special way of doing just that.
It features advanced intelligent DSP (Digital Signal Processor) technology that tailors its performance so closely to a user’s system that it can confidently turn a two-way speaker system in a three-way one. For other models, including non-Dynaudio speakers, the crossover frequency, gain and phase can be set manually.
In charge of its powerful bass response are two brand-new 24cm MSP+ Hybrid Drive units, designed specifically for subwoofers, alongside a 500W power amplifier built into its base. These new drivers sit at either end of the carefully constructed sealed enclosure design, which stands wider than it does deep to help it sit more discreetly against a wall.
The Dynaudio Sub 6 has dual RCA (Coaxial) and XLR (3-Pin) connections to suit most systems and comes with a number of handy features to help larger and more advanced setups. This includes the ability to set a time-delay to ensure the sub and speakers are working perfectly in sync with one another. All a user has to do is enter the distance from the sub to the speakers and the sub will adjust itself automatically using both time and phase delays. There’s also a fully parametric EQ, including three filters to counter the effects of any room modes, to ensure the best possible performance.
2-Way to 3-Way
The Dynaudio Sub 6 integrates so well into existing Dynaudio setups because their engineers decided to go over and above the call of duty to assess the acoustic characteristics of each of Dynaudio's popular high-end hi-fi speakers – and then create a custom performance map for each one. This information is built into the Sub 6 so, using its display and menu system, users can choose the specific model of selected Dynaudio speakers they have in their setup. The Sub 6’s roll-off will then be matched perfectly between the two, turning a two-way system into a three-way one.
When Dynaudio release new speakers, they also release a firmware update for the Sub 6, adding their new performance maps so the Sub 6 can work just as closely with the latest models as it does with the classics.
Brand-new Drivers, tailor-made for Subwoofers
Subwoofers need a different balance from their drivers than stereo speakers. That’s why the Sub 6 uses Dynaudio’s new MSP+ Hybrid Drive units, which are made primarily from aluminium for stiffness, and specifically with subwoofers in mind. To counter ringing from the aluminium, it utilises a dual-action damping system that combines paper dampening on the back of the driver and Dynaudio’s own Magnesium Silicate Polymer material in a dampening cap on the front, ensuring the best performance.
