INDIANAPOLIS (January 8, 2007) ― Leading Danish loudspeaker manufacturer Jamo has updated its popular Concert E 8 Series of loudspeakers with new cosmetics and innovative audio technologies adapted from its high -end lines. The result is the elegant new Jamo C 60 Series, a range of affordable speakers that perform far above their price points.


Designed to deliver both high -impact home cinema and genuine musical reproduction, the C 60 Series includes eight models - two floorstanding speakers, two bookshelf models, a center channel, a dipolar surround speaker and two active subwoofers.

The C 60 Series benefits cosmetically from a redesigned grille/top -plate, a new diamond -cut aluminium logo, as well as the attractive Dark Apple and Black Ash finishes.

Common features throughout the range include:

Decoupled Tweeter Technology (DTT) - fully de -coupled silk -dome tweeters for better high frequency reproduction.

Waveguide - a unique tweeter faceplate that enables even sonic dispersion.

Hard Conical Cones - a distinctive woofer cone design that doesn't suffer audible breakup at working frequencies.

C 607 and C 605 Speakers
The C 607 is a powerful 3 -way floorstanding bass -reflex loudspeaker equipped with a 1 -inch tweeter, 6 -inch midrange and a pair of 6 -inch woofers. High -quality satin -chrome bi -wirable terminals are located on the rear of the cabinet and stabilization spikes are the same as used in Jamo's flagship R 909 loudspeaker.

The C 605 is similar to the C 607 but without the midrange driver, making the C 605 a 2½ -way speaker housed in a shorter cabinet. Low frequency response extends to a generous 37Hz.

C 603 and C 601 Bookshelf Speakers
The C 603 is the larger of two bookshelf models with a 2 -way bass -reflex design. It may be wall -mounted with the supplied bracket. A single 5.5 -inch mid/bass driver joins a 1 -inch DTT tweeter.

The C 601 is a compact bookshelf speaker designed to squeeze into tight spaces. Perfect as a front or surround satellite, the C 601 features a 1 -inch tweeter and a 4 -inch mid/bass driver.

C 60 CEN Center Channel
A slim -line, 2 -way bass -reflex center -channel speaker, the C 60 CEN features a pair of 4 -inch woofers and a 1 -inch tweeter. The drive units are timbre -matched with the other C 60 models.

C 60 SUR Dipolar Speaker
The C 60 SUR, a dipolar speaker designed for rear -channel home cinema surround sound, distributes sound evenly. Dipolar speakers often lack bass, but the C 60 SUR's Midrange Phase Diffusion (MPD) incorporates a solution with a midrange driver wired in opposite phase to the driver on the other side of the speaker.

SUB 650/SUB 550
The SUB 650 and 550 active subwoofers deliver low -frequency enhancement when partnered with the C 603/C 601 bookshelf speakers. The sealed -box SUB 650 is the heaviest -hitting option, with a front -firing 12 -inch long -throw woofer. With 650W of peak power, the SUB 650 reproduces low frequencies down to a 24Hz.

The SUB 550 subwoofer is perfect for lighter applications. It sports a 10 -inch woofer in a slotted port cabinet and is driven by a 550W amplifier. A front -mounted control allows quick and easy volume adjustment without having to reach around to the back of the subwoofer cabinet.
