The AtlasIED FAP43T Strategy III 4.5" coaxial loudspeaker with next generation install technology. It is packed with new performance innovations at an affordable price point for every style of installation applications. If you require an in-ceiling loudspeaker with excellent speech intelligibility, crisp music reproduction, quick installation, and wide audience coverage, look no further - this is the Right Choice. We achieved these new standards by building upon the current Strategy Series excellent reputation and by extensive market research to make it even better. The results are outstanding and will have you choosing them for all your projects going forward.
Retail stores, restaurants, recreational facilities, and even hotels, convention centers, and casinos have all changed their thinking on how an in-ceiling loudspeaker should perform. For many years, good enough was a loudspeaker that just played dull and lifeless sound. In today's world, good enough is no longer accepted because building owners want to increase their customer's experience by providing them the best of everything - including superb sound. The improved waveguide design provides wider coverage than previous models. The benefit is cost savings due to fewer loudspeakers required, while still maintaining uniform sound throughout. To enhance our low-frequency response and provide deeper bass definition, we optimized the low frequency tuning port. Additionally, the FAP43T is safety listed to both UL1480 and UL2043.
In-ceiling loudspeakers are subjected to various climate and humidity environments. Competitive offerings use steel screws that can easily rust and fail due to humidity exposure. The FAP43T provides corrosion-free, no-worry operation, since it has no metal screws holding the doglegs in position.
A new innovation is our Safety First Mounting System (SFMS). This technology prevents mounting tab damage during installation that other offerings suffer. The damage is caused by over torqueing during the installation process. This excessive torque can damage the mounting tabs that over time can increase the chance of mounting tab breakage and the loudspeaker falling from the ceiling. The SFMS is the result of over 100 tested prototypes until the final design was approved. This patent pending technology uses t-handles that are integrated into the front of the loudspeaker baffle to tighten the mounting tabs in materials as thin as sheet metal and up to 3/4".
Another important benefit is faster installation times. The SFMS also decreases installation time by up to 60%. Its mounting design is simple install steps without the need for any tools. A front mounted 70V tap selector allows installers to quickly adjust and set the 70V power taps. A removable 4-pole euro-style connector allows for easy pre-wiring and daisy chaining of additional loudspeakers and subwoofers. The result is fewer labor costs and better profits.
