Common name: Altec 632C
Production Status: Discontinued / Vintage
The 632C is a dynamic omnidirectional microphone for broadcasting and public address applications. The microphone employs a Mylar® diaphragm, with tangential compliance, a copper voice coil and a highly efficient magnetic structure. The baffel structure on top of the microphone gives the omnidirectional microphone more directivity for applications such as public addressing. It features an acoustically equalised frequency response tailored for speech intelligibility. The microphone is extremely rugged and insensitive to humidity. Also known as the “salt shaker”.
