Small is beautiful – at just 160mm wide, the 686 may be the most compact speaker in the new 600 Series, but don’t underestimate its power and precision. That’s thanks to its new Decoupled Double Dome tweeter, improved Kevlar® driver and front-facing Flowport™. An ideal bookshelf or wall-mounted speaker, the 686 is designed to fit into any space and still sound perfect. Its main 5-inch driver features a 25mm voice coil which makes for a higher sensitivity speaker with bass more suited for placement near a wall. A front-firing Flowport, dimpled like a golf ball around the aperture for smoothly regulated airflow, delivers superior bass response without the risk of rattle. And its placement ensures the speaker cabinet can be slimmer than before. The 686 even features a built-in bracket for easy wall mounting, but this small, versatile and precise speaker sounds great anywhere.
