Atlantic Technology has added a larger model to its Front Stage (FS) line of L/C/R speakers. The company previously introduced the $650, 42-inch-long FS3 to be paired with smaller TVs. The new FS5 is designed for use with TVs measuring 50 inches and up. The cabinet is 50 inches wide and three inches deep, and each channel uses two 4.5-inch CPP woofers and an ultra-wide dispersion 0.75-inch silk dome tweeter. The FS5 is available now for $1,199.
From Atlantic Technology
Atlantic Technology has begun dealer shipments of its new model FS5 Front Stage loudspeaker system. This soundbar offers exceptional sound quality in a size and profile ideal for flat-screen TVs measuring 50 inches and up.
The Atlantic Technology FS5 is a true, no-excuses high-fidelity loudspeaker system that contains all three front-channel theater speakers in a single enclosure. Its attractive piano-gloss cabinet is 50 inches wide but only 3 inches deep, so it can be wall-mounted using built-in keyhole brackets, placed on a shelf or used with Atlantic's special Shelf-2405, which provides a shelf attached directly to the flat screen TV itself.
The FS5 draws upon Atlantic Technology's long expertise in home theater speaker acoustics. Each of the three independent speaker systems contains two 4.5-inch CPP woofers, an ultra-wide dispersion 0.75-inch silk dome tweeter, and an audiophile-grade crossover network. The tweeters are mounted high between the woofers in a low-diffraction baffle to ensure dialog intelligibility. The sound is smooth, vibrant and spacious, with the unmistakable detail and effortless quality typical of the company's loudspeakers. With two woofers for each channel, bass response extends down to 80 Hz, which is more than deep enough that any accompanying subwoofer will be totally non-localizable.
The Atlantic Technology FS5 Front Stage Loudspeaker is now available with an MSRP of $1,199.
