Atlantic Technology launches AZURE in-ceiling speakers

Atlantic Technology has announced the launch of its AZURE in-ceiling speaker line. The new range – which is considered a “step-up” from the company’s IC series – is comprised of three 6.5- and two 8-inch 2-way loudspeakers. Timbre-matched to Atlantic Technology’s existing speakers, they are considered ideal for both movie- and music-focused installations. The models consist of the following, as quoted by AT:

AZURE AZ600 6.5-inch: Step-up from entry-level IC Series IC-6.1 S includes new acoustically optimized horn, fiberglass woofers, more advanced crossover components and speaker terminals, greater power handling. Retail price per speaker $330

AZURE AZ610 6.5-inch and AZ810 8-inch: Step-ups to IC-6.2 and IC-8.2. Designed for more demanding sonic performance with step-up features as cited above plus front-mounted tweeter level controls to further optimize the speaker to surroundings. Retail price per speaker: AZ610 $389 / AZ810 $599

AZURE AZ620 6.5-inch and AZ820 8-inch: Step-ups to IC-6.3 and IC-8.3. In addition to step-up features cited above these are Tri-mode™ dual-voice coil/dual tweeter ultra-thin bezel speakers and can be configured for conventional mono use, single-point stereo or dipole surround. Retail per speaker: AZ620 $439 / AZ820 $709

The woofers used here adopt new low-resonance, distortion-reducing, curved fiberglass cones which promise to deliver “superior uniformity, stiffness and speed”. AT also uses its own coated silk dome LRTs (low resonance tweeters), as found in its other in-room and in-wall speakers. Installation features include thin-bezel paintable magnetic grilles, quick-clamp mounting and heavy-duty gold-plated push-on terminals. There are also optional square grilles, back boxes and pre-construction brackets available.

“Atlantic Technology is leveraging its 30-plus years of design and manufacturing experience with the creation of the AZURE line. Whether for music use or taking advantage of their timbre-matching to blend with other Atlantic Technology home theater speakers, the series incorporates the latest in in-ceiling loudspeaker design to ensure the most exciting and accurate listening experiences,” said Paul Muto, principal of Muto Communications – the PR and Business Development agency of record for Atlantic Technology.
