Description

Carys C6 is a high-performance passive column loudspeaker offering line-array power and directivity in a convenient, discreet design.

The first system in its class to employ 6” drivers, Carys C6’s acoustic output is augmented by the use of Tetracoil Double Voice Coils to achieve an impressive peak SPL, while its unique design gives extremely broad, smooth horizontal coverage and tight vertical pattern control. As a naturally cardioid column solution, Carys C6 delivers exceptional intelligibility and clarity, even when deployed close to walls or corners.

C6 can be paired with the C15LS LF/Sub, creating a convenient plug n’ play full range solution that can be quickly and easily set up / installed by a single operator.

Carys C6 is built in Belgium by skilled craftspeople and state-of-the-art machinery before being coated in tough, weather-resistant polyurea to safeguard your investment.

AMT – Air Motion Transformer HF Driver

Developed specially for Carys, this Air Motion Transformer (AMT) design sets a new benchmark for HF driver quality and reliability.

A unique magnetic structure and the strongest Neodymium magnet, together with the highest quality membrane components, raise the bar for planar high frequency reproduction with the lowest possible distortion and an unmatched transient response.

  • Planar Exit
  • Super fast Transient response
  • Extremely low harmonic distortion
  • Super accurate control directivity
  • P.I. membrane

TTC – Tetracoil voice coil

AUDIOFOCUS has employed Tetracoil Double Voice Coil (TTC) technology  in both the C6 and C15LS to achieve Carys’ high output and low distortion.

TTC is based on an innovative magnetic structure where two different inside-outside voice coils are wound on the same former and suspended evenly in the two magnetic gaps.

Key benefits of TTC include:

  • Higher acoustic output compared with traditional voice-coil drivers.
  • Excellent thermal dissipation and reduction of thermal distortion, resulting in 50% more output at high power.
  • Ideal motor symmetry over large displacement, providing flat inductance and minimal even-order distortion.
  • Reduced intrinsic distortions and DC component offsets for extreme linear excursion with maximum low frequency SPL.
