Product Overview

The 5S is a lightweight 2-way passive loudspeaker using a ferrite LF driver and a coaxially mounted wide dispersion dome tweeter.

It employs a 5” driver in a compact bass-reflex enclosure and offers a symmetrical dispersion pattern in the horizontal and vertical plane while the cabinet may be mounted in either attitude. It can be used stand-alone or supplemented by different subwoofers of the xS-Series.

The 5S can be driven either by the d&b D6 or D12 dual channel power amplifiers configured for the 5S. More detailed information on specific loudspeaker setups with d&b amplifiers is available either in the relevant loudspeaker or amplifier manuals.



The enclosure is injection moulded with an impact and weather resistant (IP34 rating) black or white paint finish. The front of the loudspeaker cabinet is protected by a rigid metal grill backed by an acoustically transparent foam. Incorporated into the rear panel are two M8 threaded inserts, two NL4 connectors and a two pole screw terminal block. The loudspeaker cabinet and most accessories are also available with the Special Colour (SC) option that can be executed in all RAL colours.
