Directed Soundfield Loudspeakers
Niles Audio DS6.5 In-Ceiling Speaker Details
Niles new DS Directed Soundfield loudspeakers feature a fully adjustable, independently pivoting, woofer and tweeter that enables the loudspeakers to accurately recreate high fidelity sound regardless of where they are located in the ceiling — preserving interior design integrity and delivering life-like sonic quality that is not available from conventional ceiling speakers.
Fully pivoting woofer and tweeter
A pivoting woofer assembly can adjust up to 15° focusing bass and midrange tones directly at the listening area for superb imaging and unparalleled clarity. Within the woofer assembly, the tweeter is housed in its own low-diffraction pivoting assembly that can adjust up to 17° in any direction to create direct or diffused sound fields.
No-Strip Speaker Terminal
Niles patented No-Strip terminal enables speakers to be connected without stripping the speaker wire. No-Strip terminals eliminate fumbling with wire strippers and input terminals. They are color coded and plug into the crossover circuit boards on the back of Niles speakers, resulting in positive in-phase connections every time.
Moisture and UV Resistant Construction
The DS6.3, DS6.5 and DS6.7 loudspeakers are suitable for use in high moisture environments. The drivers are resistant to moisture and UV exposure; the grille is made of powder-coated aluminum. However, the speakers are not waterproof and direct contact with water should be avoided.
Engineered for Ceiling Placement
The increased popularity of cathedral and vaulted ceilings pose a distinct sonic challenge for conventional ceiling loudspeakers. That is because conventional ceiling speakers radiate sound perpendicular to their mounting surface, which usually is not where the listening area is. DS Directed Soundfield Loudspeakers overcome this challenge and allow sound to be directed into the listening area regardless of ceiling angle.
Installer Selectable Acoustic Fine Tuning
Installers can select to fine tune the bass or treble to accommodate reflective surfaces and corner loading. This selection is accomplished via the baffle-mounted treble control (-1.5dB, flat and +1.5dB) and PC board mounted bass jumper (flat, -1dB, and -2dB).
4 or 8 ohm Selectable Impedance
The DS6.3, DS6.5 and DS6.7 give the installer flexibility to select the speaker’s impedance — 4 ohms for systems where maximum current transfer and output level is desired; 8 ohms for systems utilizing multiple speaker pairs where amplifier loading is a consideration.
The DS6.3, DS6.5 and DS6.7 employ Niles exclusive MicroPerf grille construction. The exceptionally tight hole pattern provides acoustic transparency at all audio frequencies and enables the speaker elements to remain invisible. MicroPerf grilles can also be painted to blend seemlessly with the surrounding decor.
The DS6.3, DS6.5 and DS6.7 employ a bracketless mounting system in existing ceilings. Simply cut a hole in the mounting surface, install the frame by tighten the four mounting “dogs” via the front panel screws. The dogs first swivel 90°, then clamp the speaker frame to the drywall as you tighten the screws.
Twist & Lock Baffle
Patent-pending two-piece twist and lock baffle and frame mechanism facilitates quick installations. Moreover, it allows trouble-free upgrades or repairs.
Hole Saving Bracket
Available as an optional accessory, DS6 Series New Construction Brackets can be installed as a “hole-saver” before the drywall goes up. The drywall contractor cuts the holes as the drywall is installed, reducing installation time and minimizing the chance for lost wires.
