Connected Distribution have created a dedicated special 5.1.4 Atlantic Technology IW-155-LCR, IW-28-SUB (with SA-200 Amp) & IC-6-OBA speaker & subwoofer package that will glean the very best performance from the exciting new 'object based audio' formats such as Dolby Atmos® & DTS:X™.
This excellent package is formulated with Atlantic Technology's outstanding THX Certified IW-155-LCR In-Wall Speakers (x5), a quartet of Atlantic Technology's dedicated 'Object Based Audio' IC-6-OBA in-ceiling speakers (x4) and the punchy SA-200 & IW-28-SUB in-wall subwoofer/amp combo. It is the perfect higher end solution for medium sized dedicated 'object based audio' cinema rooms where the performance requirement is big.
This system is perfect for discrete but dynamic custom installation cinema's - and the ideal option to pair with Yamaha AV Receivers such as the 5.1.4 compatible RX-A2080 or RX-A3080 using 5.1.4 set-ups also.
The core elements of this system are geared around the 5 x Atlantic Technology IW-155-LCR THX Ultra2 certified loudspeakers. The IW-155-LCR is a premium-performance in-wall speaker that addresses the need for no-compromise performance with the flexibility to mount either horizontally or vertically in standard 16″-on-center stud-framed walls.It is a perfect solution for retro-fit applications or dedicated new build cinema rooms, and its small footprint makes it particularly inconspicuous when installed. The 155’s MDF baffle continues Atlantic’s use of non-resonant baffle material for in-wall speakers, resulting in far better acoustic performance than speakers that use ‘ringy’ plastic or resonance-prone aluminum baffles or enclosures. As a final touch, the 155 has two easily-accessible controls on the front panel (Boundary Compensation and HF Level) to adjust for varying placement and room acoustics situations.
Featuring great sensitivty and power handling (89dB /10–150 Watts RMS), these in-walls when utilised for the fornt left, centre and right channel's deliver incredible imaging and superior dynamics, and as dipole/biploe surounds are not necessarily desirable for Dolby Atmos®, Auro 3D® and DTS:X® surround systems - their presence as surrounds in the system deliver precise and engaging soundfields for the best home cinema enjoyment.
The elevation aspect of this system (the .4) is delivered by the dedicated Atlantic Technology IC-6-OBA' - 'Object Based Audio' in-ceiling speakers. The IC-6-OBA speaker is specifically designed to be used as the “elevation” component in an Object Based Audio system such as Dolby Atmos®, Auro 3D® and DTS:X® surround systems. The Atlantic Technology research and engineering team developed the IC-6-OBA to deliver the excitement of Object Based Audio encoded soundtracks with startling impact and holographic three-dimensional realism. The IC-6-OBA’s frequency response and radiation pattern have been specifically engineered to provide wide dispersion to eliminate hot spots that occur with standard in-ceiling speakers.
Atlantic Technology's Mica-Loaded Polypropylene cone utilised in the IC-6-OBA has physical properties that make it ideal for loudspeaker drivers and consequently is found in many of the world’s finest loudspeakers. Its combination of stiffness and strength-to-weight ratio means that it results in a more precise and defined sound reproduction. To help deliver and engaging and 'natural' sound, Atlantic Technology's soft-dome tweeter is another feature often found in the world’s finest loudspeakers. The low mass of treated cloth and its self-damping properties deliver more accurate sound with less distortion (especially when compared to other manufacturers who use harsher materials such as titanium or aluminium - which can be overly harsh at critical listening levels).
For the final part of the equation, delivering the lower end grunt and poise, is the dedicated coupling of Atlantic Technology's in-wall sub and amplifier combo - the IW-28-SUB (passive) and high current SA-200 mono subwoofer amplifier. The IW-28-SUB is an in-wall subwoofer that uses dual heavy-duty 8″ woofers to deliver rich, vibrant bass to custom-installed audio systems. Boasting amazing hookup flexibility, the 28 SUB can either be used passively, driven directly off the receiver’s front Left/Right speaker outputs by utilizing the 28 SUB’s on-board low-pass crossover, OR as in this case - it can be driven actively by using their power SA-200 amplifier connected to the receiver’s ‘sub out’ jack. The 28 SUB’s on-board low-pass crossover is then switched to ‘off,’ and the crossover functions and bass level duties are handled by the system electronics, as with any powered subwoofer.
This system enables synergy across all fronts. Not only are all the speakers matched (sleek bezel-less trims throughout) in terms of fit and finish for a consistent and impressively discrete in-wall/in-ceiling 5.1.4 cinema system - the whole system is acoustically balanced too. All the voicing on the speakers are timbre matched - being from a manufacturer who utilises the same cross-overs, materials and drivers throughout. This means there is minimal discordance in the system, it is a 'system' approach enabling cohesive synchronicity and an incredibly consistent sound-stage.
Ideal for any high quality, higher end dedicated custom installation cinema and for the most discerning of clients - it is simply one of the best complete 5.1.4 options we carry!
