24-Inch (600 mm) Slim Column Loudspeaker

SRP from £430.00 + VAT

A combination of stylish design and outstanding performance features makes the COL600 slim column loudspeaker ideal for a wide variety of applications, such as conference/meeting rooms, lecture halls, retail stores, concourses, transit spaces, fill applications, audio for video, and other applications where slim, compact design and high performance is desired.

The COL600 is an elegant column loudspeaker that provides wide horizontal and narrow vertical coverage, with a built-in 10° down-tilt to the aim, providing optimum coverage of most listening areas while allowing the speaker to be installed flat to the wall.

The slim, compact design—winner of international design awards for industrial design excellence—complements virtually any architectural décor. Two 5-inch x 2.25 inch racetrack woofers provide maximum radiating area in a column form factor. The tweeter is located at the top of array for less obstructed coverage of the listening space and is aimed at a down angle, allowing down-tilted coverage aim, even with the cabinet flat to the wall. The shallow cabinet depth of 3.7 inches (93 mm) qualifies for ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) projects when installed with the back of the cabinet flush to the wall.

A 20-watt multi-tap transformer allows for use on either 70V or 100V distributed speaker lines, while the speaker is switchable for direct 8-ohm operation with power handling of 80W continuous (320W peak, 2 hrs.). The 70 Hz to 20 kHz frequency range delivers clean, clear sound for music or speech.

Versatile installation is accommodated by two included L-brackets, which can be installed on either the top and bottom panels (for +95° horizontal pan aiming) or on the left and right side panels. Both locations allow for close-to-the- wall installation. In addition, a low-profile swivel (pan) / tilt wall bracket is also included, for adding up to 10° down-tilt to the cabinet aiming (in addition to the built-in 10° down-tilt aim when the speaker is installed flat to the wall). (Note that down-tilt may be limited by wall.)

The COL600 has an IP54 rating (per IEC60529) for protection against ingress of dust or water. The drivers are water-treated, the grille has a water-backing, and a cover is included to protect the input terminals. Available in black (JBL-COL600-BK) or white (JBL-COL600-WH).
