The Alpair-6 is well suited to smaller audio applications, particularly desk-top and nearfield uses. The bass-rich warm tone of this driver can act a balance for those installations using compressed or highly processed source music, complements the use of traditional and modern solid-state amplification. This new generation 2 model concentrates on refining the musicality of the Alpair-6 heritage.

The Alpair 6 has a mechanical X Max (1 way) of 5.5 mm (in flux). This feature is only designed to handle non-linear “peak-shock” loads, for example, the brief roll of a drum beat. For optimum movement, loads NOT exceeding 3.00 mm is within its capability for a period not exceeding 1.5 hours. The normal driven movement should remain inside 2.6 mm. For a driver of this size, this normal load X-max is generous; Together with a well-matched cabinet, a pleasing bass response can be generated.
This new generation 2 driver has a new Multi-form cone design. The cone profile has been modified to improve vocal clarity in the lower/lower mid-frequency ranges. New advanced Nomex rear suspension and a new low mass copper wound coil are also included in this design. Other additional features include a revision of the polymer mix for the frame making it 10% stiffer than the old model. Lastly, the new connector sets allow for remote soldering of cables, making installation easy.
