Overview: The Artison LRS surround-channel satellite
speakers use high-quality components for high-level performance. Two
tweeters are placed at ninety degrees to one another with the rear firing
tweeter out of phase with the front tweeter and woofer. This substantially
reduces the directional component of the sound, without eliminating the exciting
three dimensional effects of being there. The cabinets are finished in black or
white ABS that can be painted to match any décor. Integrated wall-brackets are
in included with the system.
Hybrid Acoustic Design: The Ariston surround-channel speakers feature
a unique hybrid acoustic design which is Monopole below 3 KHz where you want
"Steering Ability" for action and reality scenes, and Dipole above 3 KHz where
you do not want to be able to locate the source of the sound.
Drivers: Each speaker features two 1" Vifa soft-dome tweeters and one
4.5" kevlar midrange cone-woofer.
Cabinet: The Artison LRS utilize a bass-reflex cabinet with a
front-firing port for added bass-response and efficiency. The speaker cabinets
are made of ABS plastic and are available in a Black or White finish. The
cabinets are also paintable.
Metal Grille: The Artison LRS speakers feature a removable black or
Speaker Connections: The Artison LRS features a pair of
gold-plated spring-post terminals. The speaker wire gauge required is depending
upon wire length run; 16 Gauge is suggested as the minimum size.
Wall Bracket: Each surround-channel speaker features an attached
wall-mount bracket. You must detach the wall-mount bracket from the speaker by
removing four screws, using the supplied allen-wrench, to mount the bracket to
your wall or ceiling. The wall-mount bracket then attaches to your wall or
ceiling using four 1-1/4" dry-wall screws (not supplied). Once the bracket is
hung on the wall or ceiling, the surround-channel speaker can be reattached to
the wall-mount bracket using the same four screws you removed previously, using
the supplied allen-wrench. The LRS surround-channel speakers should be located
directly next to or behind the primary seating area and positioned approximately
70% up the wall. The speaker should be kept a least 2' from any corner.
Note: The bracket's four mounting holes are spaced approximately
5.6875" horizontally and 5.375" vertically apart.
