AtlasIED expands its Strategically Hidden Speaker (SHS) line with the addition of two new high-quality, design-friendly sound masking speakers. The SHS-3T2 and the SHS-LF are engineered and designed for sound masking and high-quality music reproduction while exhibiting a discreet, low-profile cosmetic.
As the company states, the SHS-3T2 leverages the same capabilities and connectivity of its Z Series digital all-in-one sound masking, background music, and paging system. It is able to integrate with both the Z Series Z2-B and Z4-B High-Definition Acoustical System, providing AV integrators with a simple-to-install speaker for healthcare, clinical, and corporate facilities.
AtlasIED does note that the SHS-3T2 is unique to the SHS family in that it offers a variety of mounting options, out of the box. Flexibility to match any aesthetic and work in any location is key, as the SHS-3T2 can be in-ceiling mounted, pendant mounted, or wall mounted.
Meanwhile, the SHS-LF, a design-friendly subwoofer that the company states can pair with the SHS-6T2 and SHS-3T2 to round out the low-frequencies for high-quality music reproduction. AtlasIED highlights that the solution is especially useful in hospitality applications where high-quality background music is desired.
The concealed design of both speakers is achieved by an Adaptive Dispersion Lens Technology, a new, patented waveguide form unique to AtlasIED. Only a 3-inch diameter lens and a micro trim ring are visible when using the in-ceiling mounting configuration. The dispersion lens can be easily painted to match the ceiling without compromising the architectural aesthetics of the room.
For hard-to-match spaces, AtlasIED points out that their DesignLab™ color match process can be used to replicate color and texture onto the SHS lens for visual continuity.
