DD Audio Product Spotlight | WRITTEN BY KEVIN DOYLE | 16 October 2017
The CC6.5 Component Speaker System is the perfect balance of high-fidelity refinement and value. If you’re looking for a component set that is just as proficient while blasting the latest pop hit as it is accurately delivering some laid back jazz tunes this is the component set for you. We like this set so much we made it one of the featured products on our new Upgrade Your Sound™ in-store retail display. Check out the key design elements and features below.
The 6.5-in mid-woofer features a coated paper cone that provides warm tonal characteristics with added environmental element resistance for the mobile environment. The surround is made of a lightweight rubber compound that adds durability without sacrificing any sound. For the frame, we used a sexy low resonance cast aluminum frame. For reduced inductance, extended high-frequency roll off, and increased efficiency the voice coils feature a double slit former and the motor utilizes a copper pole cap. The soft parts are driven with a high flux 17 Oz ferrite magnet motor.

DD AUDIO INSTALL HIGHLIGHT | WRITTEN BY LEWIS JACKSON | 10 OCTOBER 2017
This month’s article takes us clear across the world to visit our friends, Murtas Elektroniks, purveyors of some of the finest audio gear to hit the streets of Turkey! Having been in business for a year longer than we have, they have definitely learned what it takes to keep a business thriving! In 2004, they discovered a little known upstart from Oklahoma, and have been loyal fans and distributors ever since. That in turn brings us to the slick little setup they put in their Ford Transit Demo Van. Thanks to the help of Mr. Alparslan Andiran, Mr. Oruc Isikligil and Mr. Ufuk Garipoglu, soon everyone in Turkey will know exactly what DD Audio is all about!
This van is stuffed to the gills with equipment, ranging from six DD REDLINE 815 subwoofers powered by two M4b amplifiers, to the quartet of A4 amps running the myriad of VO goodness barking out of the doors (a pair of VO-W10’s, four VO-M8’s and four VO-B3’s). Toss in some installation accessories like the Z-Wire RCA System, 8 AWG Power Cable and 12 AWG Speaker Cable, plus some Optima batteries to power everything and you definitely have the recipe to shake things up a bit! All signal duties are handled through a Pioneer Double Din head unit.
Thanks again to Murat and everyone who helped in bringing this van to the light. I am sure this van will definitely turn heads as it tours Turkey while visiting all the dealers in the region. We all know that music is a universal language, but this build just goes to show that bass knows no bounds!
