Atlantic Technology introduced five new stealthy ceiling-mounted loudspeakers for home theater and whole-house distributed audio.
The Atlantic Technology ICTS-6HT (pictured above) is an in-ceiling home theater speaker designed for use as the front left, center, and right channels of a home theater system. The 6-1/2-inch polypropylene woofer is mounted at a 15-degree angle so it can direct midrange and vocals toward the listener for improved imaging and intelligibility. To further enhance imaging, the tweeter can be pivoted up to 30 degrees so the full frequency range of the front channels remains perfectly focused. The speakers have built-in tweeter level controls and a woofer-level/boundary compensation adjustment.
Atlantic Technology is also introducing four new Trim-Look Ceiling speakers with thin magnetically attached grilles that are nearly invisible to the casual observer. These highly efficient speakers offer exceptional sound quality for music and home theater applications. The top two models, TLC-6.3 and TLC-8.3 (pictured right), are Tri-Mode speakers with dual-voice-coil woofers and two pivoting tweeters. They have separate left- and right-channel input terminals, input jumpers, and a built-in bipole/dipole switch. These allow the speaker to be used for mono, single-point stereo, or as a surround speaker. The two base models, TLC-6.2 and TLC-8.2 (pictured left) are conventional, single-channel 6-1/2- and 8-inch two-way speakers with 1-inch soft dome tweeters that can pivot 30 degrees for optimal imaging.
