Designed to deliver THX level performance, but still mount either vertically or horizontally in a standard 2 4 wall cavity, the speaker can be used either as a high quality L/R speaker, or as the center channel speaker in a complete In-Wall THX system.

"The IWTS-155 LCR will be THX Certified when used with its optional back box," comments Atlantic Technology Marketing Director Steve Feinstein. "This will give installers THX performance in a speaker that is compact enough to be installed horizontally between standard 16 inch-on-center stud construction - something many THX certified speakers are too large to do. The 155 LCR can be used for all three front speakers, delivering perfectly-balanced sound and THX-level performance. Additionally, the 155 will be ideally suited as a center channel match with Atlantic's THX-certified IWCB-727 and IWTS-30 LCR in-wall speakers when a horizontal center channel speaker is desired."

The IWTS-155 LCR features dual 5-1/4" long-throw cone woofers flanking Atlantic Technology's proprietary 1" soft-dome Low Resonance Tweeter (LRT•). Developed for the company's In-Wall Closed Box series, this tweeter employs a crossover point a full octave or more below most designs, giving the 155 LCR substantially wider midrange dispersion characteristics than conventional designs, according to the company. As a result, the IWTS-155 LCR has a high degree of placement flexibility while still delivering high output throughout the listening room.

The IWTS-155 LCR features a 1-inch thick, non-resonant MDF baffle, and includes Atlantic's High Frequency and Boundary Compensation controls, allowing the output to be tailored for specific room acoustic and placement considerations.

The IWTS-155 LCR will be available for shipment in the fourth quarter of 2008 at a suggested retail price of $750 ea. Optional back-box and New Construction brackets will also be available.
