All five speakers sport sonic improvements over the models they replace.

Atlantic's $450-each TLC-8.3 Tri-Mode in-ceiling speaker can be configured for mono, single-point stereo or switchable bipole/dipole surround-speaker use. The bezel-less models constitute the Trim-Look Ceiling (TLC) series speakers, which feature thin magnetically attached grilles that "are flat, not domed out in profile like conventional ceiling speakers, so in addition to a trim no-bezel look, they lie flatter to the ceiling," said marketing director Steve Feinstein.

The four bezel-less models include two Tri-Mode speakers, which like their predecessors can be deployed in mono, single-point stereo, or bipole/dipole surround-speaker applications.

The new Tri-Mode speakers are the $325-each TLC-6.3 and $450-each TLC-8.3, each with a dual-voice-coil woofer and two pivoting tweeters. Each speaker features separate left- and right-channel input terminals, input jumpers and a built-in bipole/dipole switch, enabling installers to configure them for mono, single-point stereo or surround-speaker use.

Compared to their Tri-Mode predecessors, the new three-in-one speakers feature significantly refined crossovers and tweeters, and their tweeters are pivoting rather than fixed as in the predecessor models, said Feinstein. With a pair of tweeters that pivot independently of each other, he noted, installers can maximize the dipole effect for surround applications.
