Procella Audio Introduces the P6V Main/Surround Speaker


Outstanding Member
Procella Audio have just announced the introduction of a new main and surround channel speaker, the P6V. This two-way L/C/R and surround channel speaker employs pro audio components that enable it to produce playback levels and dynamic range exceeding the capabilities of conventional speakers using dome tweeters, says Procella. These components include 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. With a U.S. MSRP of $1,599 each, the P6V is now shipping to Procella dealers and distributors worldwide.


"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."

Reflecting Procella's design philosophy of achieving full dynamic range playback of 24bit/96KHz program material at reference level, the P6V uses a very high output 6.5 inch woofer driver and a 1 inch compression driver for high frequencies. It produces THX cinema reference-level playback (105dB continuous) at listening distances equivalent to the requirements for THX Ultra home cinema speakers, and does so without dynamic compression in the highs.

The P6V uses a professional audio compression driver in place of the commonly-used dome tweeter for the reproduction of high frequencies. The manufacturers state that Compression drivers have greater efficiency and power handling than dome tweeters, and can therefore produce much greater output without limitations.

Another claimed sonic benefit of the waveguide, in comparison to high-output speakers that use horns, is that it eliminates the honky coloration associated with horns. The P6V's controlled high frequency dispersion is designed to ensure dialogue intelligibility, good imaging and smooth frequency response for all listeners, regardless of where they are seated in the room.

The P6V's relatively compact size (18.5"/470mm high x 11.4"/290mm wide) and shallow depth (4.9"/125mm) should make the speaker a good candidate for wall mount placement, either as a surround speaker, main speaker next to a flat-panel display, or behind an acoustically transparent screen.
