Atlantic Technology has launched its IWCB (In-Wall Closed Box) line of architectural speakers for home theater custom installation. The speakers' unique designs feature completely sealed enclosures for improved performance, yet still mount as simply as conventional open-air designs. The line is ready for immediate shipment, and consists of three models employing either 5-1/4 or 6-1/2 inch woofers, soft dome tweeters, and a trio of ingenious acoustic controls for integration with any listening environment.

"Our In-Wall closed box speakers are the best of both worlds," commented Atlantic Technology President Peter Tribeman. "They combine the high end performance of our freestanding speakers with the invisibility and simple installation of our in-wall speakers, eliminating the acoustical and aesthetic compromises that characterize most home theater systems."

The IWCB line consists of three models, each featuring Atlantic's new LRT (Low Resonance Tweeter) design, allowing the 1-inch soft dome tweeters to handle a broader portion of the sonic spectrum for wider dispersion throughout the listening area. The IWCB-626 employs a high–power 6-1/2-inch GLH (Graphite Loaded Homopolymer) cone woofer, while the IWCB-525 and IWCB-52 each feature 5-1/4 inch GLH woofers. For the IWCB-525 and IWCB-626 models, a second diaphragm, identical to that used in the woofer, is mounted as a bass pressure driver for improved linearity and extended bass response.

Additionally, each IWCB model includes a trio of acoustic controls to allow installers to tailor performance to the listening room. The first of these is Atlantic’s exclusive DVC™ (Directional Vector Control), which is used to direct the tweeter’s radiation pattern electronically without having to resort to clumsy mechanical swiveling devices. Secondly, a High Frequency Energy switch is used to adjust tweeter level for rooms that are acoustically bright or dull. Lastly, a Boundary Compensation toggle can be used to adjust the lower-midrange output to compensate for the sound colorations that occur when the speaker is placed near a ceiling or side wall. Each speaker also includes an IR knockout, making it simple to integrate remote IR sensors into the speaker front plates.

For simplified installation, the frames, grille, and cabinet of each speaker are separate pieces, making it simple to install and paint the frames and grilles first, adding the speaker cabinet once finishing is complete.

The Atlantic Technology IWCB-626, IWCB-525, and IWCB-52 speakers are all currently available at suggested retail prices of $950, $800, and $600 each, respectively.

From its inception in 1989, Atlantic Technology's mission has been to produce home entertainment products that exemplify the very best in both performance and value. The company specializes in complete high-performance multi-channel speaker systems, state-of-the-art home theater electronics components, and products for custom audio/video installation.
