Acoustic Research M6 “Holographic Imaging” Towers
Acoustic Research engineered unique, innovative audio solutions during every decade of the company's existence. From their famous acoustic suspension enclosure design to being the first company to use ferrofluid for driver voice coil cooling, AR paved the way for many companies that followed.
Introduced in 1990, the "Holographic Imaging" series utilized several previously proven technologies, as well as a few new ones. The series explored the use of offset and angled midrange drivers to provide indirect room reflections to enhance the listener's experience by emulating "live sound" environments. Cabinet geometries were manipulated to reduce internal resonances, and larger models like the M6 used dual low-frequency drivers to produce incredible bass in minimal spaces.
The M6 was the flagship of the H/I lineup. With a 3/4" ferrofluid cooled tweeter, 5" poly cone mid-bass, and twin paper cone 8" woofers in an elongated 4th-order bandpass enclosure. The top enclosures are made from injection molded plastic to provide precise driver placement. These speakers deliver incredible imaging that is, in many ways, holographic. Bass is controlled, full, and deep. And the small tweeter is incredibly articulate. This pair have been refinished in SEM Hot Rod Smoke satin metallic finish. Woofer foams have been replaced to ensure many years of use.
