The IC-8.3 TriMode™ceiling mount speakers are a high quality multi-purpose solution for your surround and distributed audio needs. The unique dual voice coil 8" woofer and dual 1" soft dome pivoting tweeter design allows the speaker to be configured for mono, single-point stereo, or dipole surround (TriVector™) operation providing the best coverage for every application.
The IC-8.3 features Carbon loaded mica/poly cones, rubber surrounds, high temperature voice coils, advanced computer optimized crossovers, gold plated heavy duty connectors, and simple rotating clamp mounting. Simply put, these innovative ceiling speakers make it possible to have spectacular sound in most any room in your home while allowing superior surround field creation when there's no way to place surround speakers on the walls.
What is Tri-Mode?
The IC-8.3 TriMode™ceiling mount speakers offer amazing versatility. With todays JIT (just in time) stocking strategy, we realize that it's not always useful to have a pile of speakers collecting dust in your warehouse as you "wait for the perfect job" to install them. This is one reason why Atlantic Technology created the IC-6.3 and 8.3 in-ceiling mount Tri-Mode speakers.
Tri-Mode Operating Modes:
- Conventiomal (Mono) - For broader coverage in stereo applications, the dual voice coil woofer and dual tweeters will cover a much wider area than conventional in-ceiling speakers.
- Single-point Stereo - The speakers can be wired to deliver full stereo sound from a single loudspeaker, giving you great sound quality with only one unobtrusive round ceiling grille showing. This application is perfect for distributed audio in tight spaces like powder rooms and hallways.
- Dipole Surround (Tri-Vector diffuse) - Wired in this manner the speaker delivers a diffuse upper midrange and high frequency sound that helps to create involving surround sound that draws you into the action. Perfectly suited for todays open floor plan homes where a traditional side surround speaker cannot be accommodated.
The IC-8.3 are the perfect answer for background music in the dining room, multi-room sound throughout the house, or ceiling mounted speakers in a home theatre. With a discrete profile combined with great sound and easy installation, there are no excuses for not having great music and special effects wherever you want them!
