ATLANTIC TECHNOLOGY EXPANDS FLAT PANEL SPEAKER LINE WITH FS-4000:
THREE SPEAKER CHANNELS IN ONE CABINET
Norwood, Mass. (7/13/05) --- Atlantic Technology has announced the
introduction of the FS-4000 flat screen speaker system, which combines
three separate speakers into a single low profile housing for use with
modern flat panel displays. Using the same drivers and technology
developed for the company's FS-3200 LR and Center channel speakers,
this system provides the performance of a complete front soundstage in
a single cabinet that features numerous innovative options for mounting
on-wall, or on a rocker base above or below the display.
"The FS-4000 allows consumers to have the three-speaker front
soundstage that great home theater demands, without the mess, clutter,
and setup concerns that come from having three individual cabinets,"
comments Atlantic Technology President Peter Tribeman.
The FS-4000 housing is a mere 5-inches deep, and is separated
internally into three individual chambers, each with a 1-inch soft dome
tweeter, 4-1/2-inch woofer, and a 4-1/2-inch Bass Pressure Driver. Each
section of the housing is a complete speaker unto itself, with separate
speaker terminals, and a pair of rear panel controls developed for the
company's high-end C.O.R.E. technology speaker systems. These allow the
speakers to be sonically tailored for a wide variety of room acoustics,
listener preferences, and mounting configurations.
The cabinet of the Atlantic Technology FS-4000 is composed of
acoustically inert, heavily braced MDF, and the speakers are
magnetically shielded so they may be placed close to any type of video
monitor without degrading video performance. Consistent with
Atlantic's renowned attention to detail, each tweeter is raised above
the woofer centerline to minimize the off-axis response nonlinearities
that plague most conventional horizontally-oriented speakers.
The FS-4000's bass response extends to 75 Hz, providing full-bodied
musical sound even when used without a subwoofer. The speaker can also
be combined with any of Atlantic's highly regarded subwoofers and
surround speakers to create a stunning and immersive home theater
The FS-4000 can be mounted directly to the wall with keyhole mounts,
and also includes a choice of either a straight bracket for mounting
perpendicular to the wall, or angle bracket that aims the speaker
slightly up (when mounted below the display), or down (when mounted
above the display). In addition, it also comes with a stud bracket that
anchors the speaker securely to wall studs for a rock-solid
installation. Lastly, it also includes Atlantic Technology's exclusive
rocker base, which allows the speaker to be mounted on a shelf or on
the video display itself, and tilted toward the listening area at any
The FS-4000 loudspeaker system is available in Metallic Silver or Gloss
Black finishes, with a matching perforated metal grille. The grille is
held in place with neodymium magnets, the same arrangement as found on
Atlantic's $20,000 flagship System 8200.
The Atlantic Technology Model FS-4000 is now available at a suggested
retail price of $999 each.
