Description Audix D6 Features:

Provides huge kick drum sound with ground shaking low end while delivering exceptional clarity and attack.

Designed, machined, assembled and tested by Audix in the USA, the D6 is a dynamic instrument microphone used for stage, studio and broadcast applications. The D6, which is characterized with a cardioid pickup pattern for isolation and feedback control, is equipped with a VLM (Very Low Mass) diaphragm for natural, accurate sound reproduction.

The D6 is lightweight, compact and easy to position. With a wide frequency response of 30 Hz - 15 kHz and the ability to handle sound pressure levels in excess of 144 dB, the D6 is an excellent choice for miking instruments requiring extended low frequency reproduction such as kick drum, large toms, and bass cabinets.

Roadworthy construction includes a precision machined aluminum body, black anodized finish, laser etched model and serial number, steel mesh grill, Switchcraft XLR connector and includes a tension-fit heavy duty nylon mic clip.

Transformerless design, low impedance, and balanced output allow for interference-free performance even with long cable runs.

OPERATION:

The D6 is a low impedance microphone and should be plugged into a “mic level ” of your console, mixer, or recording device. Please note that your microphone does not require phantom power and will not be effected in any way by phantom power should it be running simultaneously while the microphone is in operation. Avoid plugging or unplugging the microphone from the PA system unless the channel is muted or the volume of the system turned down. Failure to do so may result in a loud popping noise which could seriously damage the speakers in the PA system.

ARCHITECTS AND ENGINEERS SPECIFICATIONS:

The microphone shall be of the dynamic type operating on the moving coil principle and the capsule shall be VLM Type E. The polar pattern of the microphone shall be cardioid. The nominal output impedance shall be 200 ohms at 1 kHz.The microphone shall have a sensitivity of 0.8 mV / Pa at 80 Hz and will handle a sound pressure level of 144 dB. The microphone body shall be machined of aluminum and the grill cap shall be steel wire mesh. The overall dimensions shall be 21.5 mm in diameter at the base, 51 mm in diameter at the widest point and 117mm in length. The microphone shall be the Audix D6.

USER TIPS:

The D6 compensates for instruments with extremely high sound pressure levels by having a very low output stage. For kick drums, as a general rule, start with the mic positioned centered inside the middle of the drum pointed towards the beater. For more attack, and less bass boom, move the mic closer to the beater. For less attack and more bass, move the mic further away from the beater. For kick drums without hole in front head, place the D6 a few inches from the head for a large dynamic sound. For toms, position the mic 2 inches from the head and point towards the center of the drum. For bass cabinets, position the mic 90 degrees to the grill cloth and 1-2 inches inside the edge of the speaker.
