Atlantic Technology's new FS3 Front Stage Loudspeaker combines three two-way speakers in a 42-inch-long cabinet in an L/C/R configuration. Each speaker uses two long-throw 3.5-inch Composite Polypropylene/Paper woofers and a 0.75-inch silk dome tweeter. The back panel features push-style binding posts that can accept heavy-gauge wire. The FS3 can be wall-mounted, placed on a tabletop, or mated with the optional Shelf-2405 kit to mount the speaker on top of the TV. The FS3 is available now for $650.
From Atlantic Technology
Atlantic Technology has introduced its FS3 Front Stage Loudspeaker for home theater. This powerful system combines three front-channel speakers to create a strong, coherent soundstage with an on-wall or console-mounted flat screen TV.
The Atlantic Technology FS3 consists of three LCR (left-center-right) front-channel speakers mounted in a 42-inch-long enclosure with a 4.75- by 3-inch deep cross section. Each of the three speaker elements consists of two long-throw 3.5-inch CPP (Composite Polypropylene/Paper) woofers and a 0.75-inch silk-dome tweeter. The woofers' CPP cones combine the fast transient response of polypropylene with the inherent self-damping traits of cellulose. This provides exceptionally linear response while eliminating any tendency toward harshness. In the audible range above the 3,500 Hz crossover circuit, a small but powerful 0.75-inch tweeter exhibits smooth response and exceptional upper-octave dispersion compared to more typical 1-inch tweeters.
In addition to the performance derived from the drivers and crossover, the front panel and grille assembly provide a flat speaker front with no bumps or barriers to generate diffraction adjacent to the woofers and tweeter. The tweeter is also mounted slightly off the axis of the woofers to reduce overlap interference. All these elements combine to give the FS3 excellent response and dispersion characteristics with a broad listening area, and no hot spots or dead zones.
The Atlantic Technology FS3 uses high-quality push-style binding posts that can accept heavy gauge wire. Wall mounting is provided using either two rear-panel keyhole mounting brackets or two standard 0.25-inch threaded mounting plates that work with a variety of TV and speaker mounting systems. There is also an optional Shelf-2405 kit for mounting the speaker on top of the TV screen.
Atlantic Technology FS3 is now available in black finish with a suggested retail price of $650.
