Atlantic Technology Expands AZURE Line of In-Ceiling Speakers resizeimage 1 8Atlantic Technology added a new line of in-ceiling speakers as part of the AZURE line. AZURE includes three 6.5-inch and two 8-inch, two-way loudspeakers that are timbre-matched to Atlantic Technology’s range of in-room and in-wall speakers. With the launch of the five AZURE speakers atop the eight IC Series, the company now offers 13 architectural solutions in total.

AZURE’s woofers utilize Atlantic Technology’s new low resonance formed fiberglass cones. The cones are designed in a new curved shape to reduce distortion. The woofers use high-temperature voice coils with a magnet structure and a vented pole piece along with butyl rubber surrounds to ensure audiophile performance. The woofer is contained in a non-resonant enclosure design with a horn-shaped profile for wide uniform mid-range dispersion. resizeimage 2 5
High frequencies are handled by the coated silk dome Low Resonance Tweeter (LRT). These wide dispersion tweeters utilize Ferrofluid cooling and efficient Neodymium magnets and have a lower crossover point than that of typical in-ceiling speakers. They also have a computer-optimized second order network composed of precision audiophile-grade components and a resettable poly switch 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.

AZURE AZ600 6.5-inch is $300 and the AZURE AZ610 6.5-inch and AZ810 8-inch are $350 and $550, respectively. The AZURE AZ620 6.5-inch and AZ820 8-inch are tri-mode dual-voice coil/dual tweeter thin bezel speakers and can be configured for conventional mono use, single-point stereo or dipole surround. They are $400 for the AZ620 and $500 for the AZ820.

Installer-friendly features include ultra-thin bezel paintable magnetic grilles, secure quick-clamp mounting and heavy-duty, push-on terminals. Available are optional square thin bezel grilles, back boxes and pre-construction brackets. Both series of in-ceiling speakers integrate perfectly with the brand’s in-wall subwoofers.
