THX Ultra 2 Performance (It just happens to be an in-wall.)
The IW-30 LCR is our top-of-the-line in-wall speaker. It’s an exceptionally sophisticated speaker whose lineage traces directly to our highly regarded System 8200e. The 30 LCR is a 3-way design using an 8″ woofer, dual 3 ½” midranges and Atlantic’s exclusive LRT™ tweeter.
The entire M-T-M assembly rotates 90 degrees so the midranges and tweeter can be kept in the correct vertical orientation whether the speaker is installed horizontally or vertically. The assembly also can tilt up to 8 degrees, so the sound can be precisely directed at the listening position–up, down, left, or right– regardless of where the speaker is placed in the room.
Particularly noteworthy are Atlantic’s proprietary new midrange drivers. Utilizing oversized 1″ voice coils and massive magnets for high efficiency, these drivers exhibit exceptionally low distortion and tremendous power-handling ability. The 30’s remarkable clarity and detail is attributable in large measure to these amazing new drivers.
The 30 LCR’s MDF baffle continues Atlantic’s use of non-resonant baffle material for in-wall speakers, resulting in far better acoustic performance than speakers that use ‘ringy’ plastic or resonance-prone aluminum baffles or enclosures.
As a final touch, the 30 has three easily-accessible controls on the front panel (Boundary Compensation, HF Level, and Location) to adjust for varying placement, room acoustics, and video screen usage situations.
This new design utilizes an ultra thin bezel and magnetic grille for the ultimate in stealth design.
