Atlantic Technology Launches Step-Up In-Ceiling Speaker Line

AZURE offers ultra-competitive margins and new limited lifetime warranty. 

The latest in its ongoing expansion across many in-home audio categories these past 24 months, Atlantic Technology increases its offerings in the in-ceiling category with the launch of AZURE. A step-up from its IC Series, AZURE is comprised of three 6.5- and two 8-inch 2-way loudspeakers that incorporate the latest in acoustic designs and drivers. The speakers are timbre-matched to Atlantic Technology’s range of in-room and in-wall speakers. The company has also implemented a major increase in its dealer margin in its IC Series and across the AZURE series and has upped its in-ceiling speaker warranty for both the IC and AZURE Series from 5-years to Limited Lifetime. With the launch of the five AZURE speakers atop the eight IC Series, the company now offers 13 premium architectural solutions in total.

Atlantic Technology AZURE - Front

AZURE’s woofers utilize Atlantic Technology’s new lightweight low resonance formed fiberglass cones — the same material as found in its flagship 8600 and AT-3 H-PAS towers. The fiberglass provides superior uniformity, stiffness, and speed with the cones designed in a new curved shape to reduce distortion from break-up, resulting in improved midrange clarity, according to the company. The woofers use high-temperature voice coils with a massive magnet structure and a vented pole piece along with butyl rubber surrounds to ensure audiophile performance. The woofer is contained in a new non-resonant enclosure design with a horn-shaped profile for wide uniform mid-range dispersion.

High frequencies are handled by the company’s advanced proprietary, coated silk dome Low Resonance Tweeter (LRT), same as featured in many of Atlantic Technology’s in-room and in-wall speakers. These wide dispersion tweeters utilize Ferrofluid cooling and super-efficient Neodymium magnets and have a lower crossover point than that of typical in-ceiling speakers with a computer-optimized 2nd order network composed of precision audiophile-grade components and a resettable polyswitch protection circuit. The tweeters are mounted on a new bridge designed to reduce interaction with the woofer and 30-degree orbital pivoting allows installers to optimize sound to the listening area.
