Following the success of the Graham Audio LS3/5 and LS5/9, the team at Graham Audio was curious to discover what could be done with a cabinet that was sized somewhere between the two. Sitting between the LS3/5 and LS5/9 in size, the Graham Audio LS6 offers much greater power handling and bass extension than the LS3/5 while retaining the lucid midrange and imaging.
- Two way ported enclosure
- 6.5″ mid / bass driver and 1″ fabric dome tweeter
- Adjustable high frequency output to help with room integration
- Excellent low and high frequency extension
- Exceptional linearity
- Available in a range a real wood veneer finishes
Designed by Derek Hughes, the Graham Audio LS6 uses a custom long throw bass driver mated to a compact 17 litre cabinet, which provides bass extension and power handling that is comparable to the LS5/9. The bespoke 19mm dome tweeter extends to beyond 20 kHz. The overall response retains the smoothness of both the LS3/5 and LS5/9.
A large rear mounted port gives effortless bass, while allowing us to minimise the size of the cabinet to allow it to blend easily into typical domestic environments.
A sophisticated crossover network blends the two units and equalises the overall response for optimum performance in free space. A switch on the front baffle adjusts the tweeter level to +1dB or +2dB. This can be useful for situations where the listening position is off axis.
In common with all Graham Audio loudspeakers, the cabinet uses the classic BBC “thin wall” construction, where the panels are mass-loaded to ensure that resonances are moved away from the critical mid-range region, and a layer of Rockwool is held in place by fabric to provide air damping. Hand-matched veneers are applied and finished to a very high standard. The grille is carefully designed to minimise diffraction effects and is held in place by concealed rare-earth magnets.
