Atlantic Technology has debuted its FS-5000 three-in-one
front soundstage speaker system, a single 50-inch–wide enclosure
that houses three independent two-way speaker systems for complete
reproduction of all three front channels of a home theater system,
eliminating the installation problems of in-wall speakers and
the space consumption of large floorstanding models. This new
model is a larger and more powerful alternative to the company's
well-received FS-4000, featuring upgraded drivers, improved power
handling and bass response, and a flexible array of included on-wall
and shelf mounting hardware, making it the perfect complement
to larger flat panel displays.
The FS-5000 cabinet is just 5-inches deep, and is internally
separated into three individual chambers, each featuring a single
1-inch dome tweeter and a pair of the company's 4-1/2-inch GLH
(Graphite Loaded Homopolymer) woofers that have been re-engineered
with longer throws and larger magnet systems for improved power
handling and bass response. Each section of the housing is a complete
speaker unto itself, with separate speaker terminals and a pair
of rear panel controls developed for the company's high-end speaker
systems. These allow the speakers to be sonically tailored for
a wide variety of room acoustics, listener preferences, and mounting
"When we introduced the FS-4000 at CEDIA two years ago,
we knew we had a great idea on our hands," comments Atlantic
Technology President Peter Tribeman. "Installers loved the
ability to give consumers a complete front soundstage in a package
that is easier to install, set-up, and live with than typical
box or in-wall speakers. There was just one small thing…
they wanted a larger, more powerful version for use with displays
over 50-inches, and in large theater rooms. The FS-5000 is our
The FS-5000's bass response extends down to 70 Hz, providing
full-bodied musical sound even when used without a subwoofer.
The speaker can also be combined with any of Atlantic's highly
regarded subwoofers and surround speakers to create a stunning
and immersive home theater system.
The FS-5000 can be mounted directly on the wall with keyhole
mounts, and also includes a choice of either a straight bracket
for mounting perpendicular to the wall, or angle bracket that
aims the speaker slightly up (when mounted below the display),
or down (when mounted above the display). In addition, it also
comes with a stud bracket that anchors the speaker securely to
wall studs for a rock-solid installation. Lastly, the FS-5000
also includes Atlantic Technology's exclusive rocker base, which
allows the speaker to be mounted on a shelf or on the video display
itself, and tilted toward the listening area at any angle desired.
The FS-5000 loudspeaker system is available in metallic silver
or gloss black finishes, with a matching perforated metal grille.
The Atlantic Technology Model FS-5000 is now available at a
suggested retail price of $1,499 each.
