DM603 S2

F l o o r- standing loudspeaker system

Product Summary

The DM603 S2 is the entry level floor standing speaker in the 600 Series2. The speaker

comes into its own as a front speaker in larger Home Cinema installations and, as with

any model in the range, it is a superb monitor for 2-channelaudio.


The 2/2-waysystem uses a secondbass-onlydriver to supplement the output of the upper

bass/midrange driver in the lowest octaves. This arrangement improves system power

handling and reduces demands on the bass/midrange driver, which in turn improves

midrange clarity.
