Atlantic Technology Releases Flagship Passive Sound Bar, Model FS5

Atlantic Technology FS5 Front Stage Loudspeaker

Atlantic Technology just started shipping their new flagship three-channel passive sound bar called the FS5 Front Stage Loudspeaker system. The company claims their $1200 sound bar offers exceptional sound quality in a size and profile ideal for flat-screen TVs measuring 50 inches and up. But you’ll need a receiver or amplifier to use with it to make it work.

The Atlantic Technology FS5 is a true, no-excuses high-fidelity loudspeaker system that contains all three front-channel (LCR) theater speakers in a single enclosure. Its attractive piano-gloss cabinet is 50 inches wide but only 3 inches deep so it can be wall-mounted using built-in keyhole brackets, placed on a shelf or used with Atlantic’s special Shelf-2405, which provides a shelf attached directly to the flat screen TV itself.

Atlantic Technology FS5 Sound Bar

The FS5 draws upon Atlantic Technology’s long expertise in home theater speaker acoustics. Each of the three independent speaker systems contains two 4.5-inch CPP woofers, an ultra-wide dispersion 3/4-inch silk dome tweeter, and an audiophile-grade crossover network. The tweeters are mounted high between the woofers in a low-diffraction baffle to ensure dialog intelligibility. The company claims sound is smooth, vibrant and spacious, with the unmistakable detail and effortless quality typical of the company’s loudspeakers. With two woofers for each channel, bass response extends down to 80Hz, which more than deep enough that any accompanying subwoofer to be totally non-localizable.

The drivers of the FS5 (and also FS3, LCR2 and LCR3) are mounted in a dense resonant-free mounting plate that sits proud of the speaker baf e. 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. Atlantic Technology says this helps the FS5 sound clear and unfettered, for maximum clarity and intelligibility.

Price and Availability
The Atlantic Technology FS5 Front Stage Loudspeaker is now available with an MSRP of $1,199.
