FS3 Slim-Profile Front Stage Loudspeaker

Crisp, articulate LCR sound from a trim and stylish enclosure

NOW AVAILABLE IN GLOSS BLACK!

FS3-gloss-angled-nogrille-300px.jpgThe FS3 is a true, no-excuses high-fidelity loudspeaker system that contains all three front channel LCR speakers in a single enclosure. Its sleek, trim cabinet is sized and proportioned to look perfect when used with thin-panel LED/LCD TVs with screen sizes from 42-65 inches.

The FS3 can be wall-mounted, placed on a shelf or used with Atlantic’s special Shelf-2405, which provides a shelf attached directly to the flat screen TV itself.

Acoustically, the FS3 is the genuine article. Drawing upon Atlantic Technology’s decades of expertise designing and manufacturing high-fidelity speaker systems of the very highest quality and performance, each of the three independent speaker systems within the enclosure contains two 3 ½-inch CPP woofers and an ultra-wide dispersion ¾-inch silk dome tweeter. Blended together by an audiophile-grade crossover network, the FS3’s sound is smooth, vibrant and spacious, with the unmistakable detail and effortless quality that marks the sound of a truly premium audio device.

Reducing Diffraction to Ensure Maximum Intelligibility

FS3-diffraction-diagram.jpgSound waves emanate out from a woofer or tweeter the way that ripples in a pond emanate away from the spot where you tossed in the pebble. But if you put something in the water near that spot—like the leg of a pier—when those ripples hit the obstruction, they’ll break up into many smaller waves and the smoothness of the original wave is gone.

That’s exactly what happens when a speaker sends out its sound into a nearby obstruction—like the frame of a typical grille. The sound hits that frame—like water ripples hitting a post—and the sound breaks up, smearing the clarity of the original signal.


The drivers of the FS3 (and also our LCR3) are mounted in a dense resonant-free mounting plate that fits into a reciprocal cutout in the grille frame. The result is that the drivers “see” a smooth local acoustic environment, so none of their sound diffracts off the blunt inner surface of the grille frame, the way it does on a conventional speaker. Instead of multiple “ripples” interfering with each other, the FS3’s sound is always clear and unfettered, for maximum clarity.
