High-quality Atlantic sound, compatibility with the latest technology
The Atlantic Technology IC-6.1 is a compact ceiling loudspeaker with big sound and high performance that will surprise even critical listeners. It features a long-excursion 6 1/2” Polypropylene woofer and a pivoting 1″ soft dome tweeter, coupled with a sophisticated crossover network. In addition, the IC-6.1 has magnetically attached grills, and an ultra-thin bezel design for a more refined look.
Combine its high-quality drive units, sophisticated crossover network, and easy installation, and you have a speaker whose performance, flexibility, and value is unmatched.
Medium Room Size
- Superb sound for modest home theaters or whole-house audio
- Ultra-thin bezel design
- Magnetically attached grills
- Well-suited for surround channel use in 5.1 or 7.1 systems
The crossover network is the speaker’s electronic circuitry that splits up the incoming full-bandwidth audio signal and sends the lower frequencies to the woofer and the higher frequencies to the tweeter.
Most inexpensive speakers use a very rudimentary crossover network that only has one or two components. All these simple elements can do (usually, just a capacitor to ‘block’ the bass from entering the tweeter and burning it out, and an inductor to trim the excess highs from the woofer) is to crudely combine the woofer and tweeter into a “system” and give you some semblance of a full-range speaker.
A real crossover will accurately balance the drivers’ output to each other and also correct for any gross response deficiencies in the drivers themselves. This requires a full network, with many electronic components—like the IC-6.1’s crossover. This degree of refinement makes the IC-6.1 a superior choice for a wide range of applications.
