even at extremely high sound pressure levels (SPL).

the D6 is equipped with a VLM diaphragm for natural, accurate sound reproduction.
Lightweight, compact and easy to position, the D6 is an excellent choice for miking instruments requiring extended low frequency reproduction
such as kick drums, large toms and bass cabinets. The D6s transformer less design, low impedance and balanced output allow for interference-free performance.
