Atlantic Technology has introduced a line of all-weather indoor/outdoor speakers just in time for a big season of outdoor entertainment. The 100 series models are shipping now with the 300 series shipping in August and the 200 series in September.
The nine new two-way models come in three series, are sold in pairs with options of three woofer sizes and two colors:
- Constant Current Series: 4-ohm speakers for installations where standard amplification is desired.
- Constant Voltage Series: Externally switchable with a 4-ohm setting plus three impedance/wattage settings with the built-in audiophile-grade transformer, making them ideal for larger 70/100-volt home and commercial applications where long distances and many speakers are required.
- Wireless Series: Active AC powered speakers featuring SKAA wireless technology for applications where running signal cable is problematic or installation flexibility and transportability is needed. Each pair comes with a remote control and a free “.cmd” app for iOS, Android, Windows, and MAC OS X to manage multi-room transmitter/speaker control. It can be downloaded for free from the SKAA website https://skaa.com/tlc/skaa-cmd/
All speakers use sealed UV, impact resistant cabinets made with heavily reinforced acoustically-inert mineral-filled polypropylene that’s environmentally-resistant plus far more neutral and less “ringy” than typical outdoor speakers.
Each series features a 1-inch ferrofluid-cooled titanium tweeter with a neodymium magnet to produce extended high-frequencies beyond audibility. A 12 dB/octave crossover delivers a smooth response and high, 90 dB efficiency mating with new woofers in either 4-inch, 5.5-inch, or 6.5-inch sizes. The woofers feature super-stiff lightweight mineral homopolymer loaded fiberglass cones and a clear mid-range, creating a directed soundfield with the tweeter.
Available in black or white, the paintable speakers feature aluminum power-coated grilles, one-handed install adjustable mounting brackets with passive models featuring spring-loaded gold-plated speaker terminals with posts designed for 16 gauge or larger cables.
