In the past, ceiling-mounted theater speakers have been somewhat of a compromise between the desire for non-intrusive looks on one hand and the need for great sound on the other. But with Atlantic Technology's ICTS-6 HT, all that changes. The ICTS-6 HT is a no-excuse, high-performance speaker perfectly suited to front-stage LCR use in a home theater. Its superb drive units and audiophile-grade crossover give it a level of sonic refinement and detail not usually associated with ceiling speakers.
Gold-plated, heavy duty connectors for top notch sound
Featuring an "aimable" tweeter and baffle-mounted tone controls
The key to its great LCR performance is its precisely-angled woofer. The woofer is angled at 15 degrees to so it can direct the critically-important midrange and vocals right at the listening area for precise imaging and intelligibility. In addition, the 1-inch soft-dome tweeter is also "aimable" so the full frequency range of the front theater channels remains perfectly focused.

The ICTS-6 HT features a polypropylene woofer cone, rubber surround, high temperature voice coil, advanced computer optimized crossover, gold-plated heavy-duty connectors, and simple rotating clamp mounting. All the materials are top-notch. This is the ceiling speaker that delivers "third row, center" sound.
Polypropylene 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.
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.
This control adjusts the speaker's sound to compensate for the presence or absence of upper bass/lower midrange reinforcement on the sound that is introduced by nearby walls (a "boundary").
The tweeter in the Atlantic Technology 6 HT is "aimable" so you can direct the sound towards the listening area when using them as front theater LCR speakers.
Stable Tweeter Bridge Mounting
The tweeters in these ceiling loudspeakers are mounted on an extremely stable bridge rather than on a central "pole" as found in conventional designs. This mounting method is less prone to resonance and vibration than a central pole tweeter mount, resulting in cleaner sound, especially at high listening levels.
