Atlantic Technology debuts new discreet in-wall speakers
Atlantic Technology has introduced two new home theater speakers designed for discreet in-wall installations. The speakers, the IW-110LCR and IW-105LCR, are designed to be installed in the wall adjacent to flat screen TVs or video projection screens. Their paintable grilles can be matched to the wall color for an unobtrusive presentation.
Both speakers use 6-1/2-inch mineral-damped polymer woofers, a 1-inch dome tweeter and 3,500 Hz crossover network to deliver quality sound. They are intended to deliver powerful bass and clear, airy highs, allowing them to function as both music and theater speakers. A three-step tweeter level switch allows users to tailor the high frequency sound and computer-designed wave-guides are used for treble distribution.
The IW-110LCR uses a MTM (midrange-tweeter-midrange) driver configuration with two woofers bracketing the tweeter. When mounted vertically, this can create a broader soundstage ideal for left and right speakers. Mounted horizontally, it is an excellent center-channel speaker. With its added woofer, the IW-110LCR, has the highest bass performance and efficiency of the two models.
The IW-105LCR has a single woofer and a lower price point. Both models feature magnetic mounting grilles to prevent wall damage common to pry-off grilles. Both models also include built-in mounting clamps for quick and easy installation.
Atlantic Technology IW-110LCR and IW-105LCR in-wall speakers are now available at suggested retail prices of $500 and $350 each.
