Norwood, Mass. (7/13/05) --- Atlantic Technology
has announced the introduction of the FS-4000 flat screen speaker
system, which combines three separate speakers into a single low
profile housing for use with modern flat panel displays. Using
the same drivers and technology developed for the company's FS-3200
LR and Center channel speakers, this system provides the performance
of a complete front soundstage in a single cabinet that features
numerous innovative options for mounting on-wall, or on a rocker
base above or below the display.
"The FS-4000 allows consumers to have the three-speaker
front soundstage that great home theater demands, without the
mess, clutter, and setup concerns that come from having three
individual cabinets," comments Atlantic Technology President
FS-4000 housing is a mere 5-inches deep, and is separated internally
into three individual chambers, each with a 1-inch soft dome tweeter,
4-1/2-inch woofer, and a 4-1/2-inch Bass Pressure Driver. 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 C.O.R.E. technology speaker
systems. These allow the speakers to be sonically tailored for
a wide variety of room acoustics, listener preferences, and mounting
The cabinet of the Atlantic Technology FS-4000 is composed of
acoustically inert, heavily braced MDF, and the speakers are magnetically
shielded so they may be placed close to any type of video monitor
without degrading video performance.
Consistent with Atlantic's renowned attention to detail, each
tweeter is raised above the woofer centerline to minimize the
off-axis response nonlinearities that plague most conventional
The FS-4000's bass response extends to 75 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
The FS-4000 can be mounted directly to 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, it 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-4000 loudspeaker system is available in Metallic Silver
or Gloss Black finishes, with a matching perforated metal grille.
The grille is held in place with neodymium magnets, the same arrangement
as found on Atlantic’s $20,000 flagship System 8200.
The Atlantic Technology Model FS-4000 is now available at a
suggested retail price of $999 each.
