Dakota Audio FA-602 Directional Audio array is the smaller version (24 inches square) of the FA-501. The FA-602 is unique in that it directs the audio signal at an a fifteen degree angle to one side of the focused speaker (indicated on the back side of the speaker) instead of straight down as the FA-501 does.

The FA-602's steered audio signal is especially useful when installing in a post construction environment or when used in a suspended or acoustic tile ceiling. In these situations invariably there is some obstruction that interferes with the proper placement of the speaker. Through hundreds of installations we have found that the 15 degree offset overcomes most of these situations. The FA-602 produces a slightly oval sound pattern enabling a variety of mounting postions from horizontally overhead to mounting vertically on a wall or under a grating in the floor.

This speaker is commonly installed in conjunction with retail digital signage, in sports bars, and in the majority of the museums in the world. (over 75% of the museums in North America alone)

The FA-602 is easily field adjustable for both mounting height and pattern width.

There are two push buttons and two rows of LEDs on the top side of the array. One sets the mounting height above the floor in one foot increments from 8 to 14 feet. The other button controls the pattern width in seven steps from tight to a circle appropriately 10 feet in diameter. Audio input is line level, transformer isolated, either balanced or unbalanced. A volume control and two position gain switch controls the built in amplifier which accommodates a wide range of audio input levels.

A three position switch controls a built in equalizer with three preset adjustments to the audio frequency response for the program material. The music position provides full range sound. The voice with music position has a slight rise in the high frequency response to enhance voice intelligibility while maintaining good music reproduction. The voice position reduces low frequencies for maximum voice intelligibility.The array accepts any standard line level input, either balanced or unbalanced. For installations where the audio level is set remotely, a switch disables the volume control.

The FA-602 focused sound arrays are powered by either 16 to 18 Volts AC or 24 Volts DC. A plug-in 16 VAC transformer is supplied for installations where local 120 power is available. Where the array power and signal cables share the same conduit, it is suggested to power them with 24VDC.

The units are constructed of aluminum, with a non-reflective black powder coat finish.

The snap-on fabric grill cover is provided, available in black or white.
