RL 906

The RL 906 is a compact two-way loudspeaker consequently optimised for usage as a near-field monitor. Either in an outside broadcasting van, on top of the meter bridge or in the home studio and even as an precious hi-fi monitor it is more than convincing.

By Musikelectronic Geithain’s coaxial technology a directivity was realised, that is especially adjusted to the requirements of near-field monitoring, meaning small base widths and short listening distances. Homogeneity, neutral tone quality and directional definition are most widely compatible to the greater speakers from the RL series. This allows seamless working without familiarisation phases along the whole audio production, regardless if it is in an outside broadcasting van, the cutting room or in the great studio. The RL 906 is barely greater than a controlling monitor, but it houses the power capability of a full-valued studio monitor. The bass reproduction as well as the maximum level meet the requirements of most challenges. In 5 channel applications, demanding a higher level in the lowest frequency range, the RL 906 is perfectly combined with our models from the Basis series whereby it moves closer to the greater models.

The loudspeaker is equipped with a 13 cm (5”) cone woofer and a coaxial arranged 25 mm (1”) tweeter. Each is powered by a separate MOSFET-amplifier with active crossover and electronic overload protection. The amplifier is situated in the back of the cabinet. The RL 906 provides a balanced XLR-type input with an adjustable input level. To compensate their placement, the speaker features three controllers to continuously adjust the high- and low-frequency response and also the frequencies around 300 Hz. These controllers are attached to the cabinet’s backside. A two-coloured LED indicates the state of the amplifier and warns of clipping.

A variety of special stands and racks is available as accessories. According fixing elements have been integrated into the loudspeaker cabinet.
