A few days ago, we wrote about Atlantic Technology's new FS3 speaker bar, which combines three two-way speakers in one cabinet. The company is also offering that speaker in a standalone bookshelf design, called the LCR3. The speaker combines two long-throw 3.5-inch Composite Polypropylene/Paper woofers and a 0.75-inch silk-dome tweeter in a gloss-black or white cabinet that weighs just 4.78 pounds. You can position the LCR3 vertically or horizontally (for use as a center channel), and it can be wall- or stand-mounted. The LCR3 is available now for $275 each.
From Atlantic Technology
Atlantic Technology has introduced its LCR3 compact two-way speaker designed for compact music or home theater systems. These high-performance speakers are available in gloss black or white finish for vertical or horizontal wall mounting, fitted to speaker stands, or placement on a shelf.
Each Atlantic Technology LCR3 uses 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 one-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 LCR3 excellent response and dispersion characteristics with a broad listening area, and no hot spots or dead zones.
The Atlantic Technology LCR3 features high-quality push-style binding posts that can accept heavy gauge wire. The rear panel includes two dual-direction keyhole mounting brackets that allow for secure horizontal or vertical wall mounting. There is also a standard 0.25-inch threaded mounting plate for use with speaker stands.
Atlantic Technology LCR3 is now available in gloss black or gloss white finish at suggested retail prices of $275 each.
