Features

Overview: The Atlas SHS-6T2 in-ceiling speaker can provide exceptional sound performance, while maintaining a low profile appearance. A built-in transformer allows the speaker to operate in 70V, 100V, and low-impedance (6Ω) systems. The SHS-6T2 also features an integrated tile bridge for easy installation in drop-ceilings. The in-ceiling speaker is an ideal loudspeaker for background music, paging, or sound masking applications.

SHS: The SHS-6T2 speaker uses Atlas' proprietary SHS (Strategically Hidden Speaker) technology. Once the speaker is installed in a drop-ceiling, only a 3" diameter sound lens will be visible through the ceiling tile, while the rest of the enclosure sits on top of the tile rails, hidden from view.

Drivers: The Atlas SHS in-ceiling speaker utilizes a single 2-way speaker that includes a 4.5" woofer with a coaxially mounted 0.787" (20mm) silk dome tweeter, mounted inside a sealed enclosure that's tuned for deep bass performance. Sound from the speaker travels through a waveguide tunnel and exits through a patented Adaptive Dispersion Lens that acts as a phase plug. This gives the speaker wide, even 130˚ sound dispersion, both horizontally and vertically, with minimal "hot spots" directly underneath it. Three Adaptive Dispersion Lenses are included for different ceiling heights: Less that 10', between 10' and 14', and ceilings over 14'.

70V/100V/6Ω: The SHS-6T2 speaker includes a built-in transformer for 70/100V operation, as well as a 6Ω "bypass" setting. It can handle 75W RMS in low-impedance bypass mode, and provide up to 32W in 70/100V mode. Tap settings include:

  • 70V: 4W, 8W, 16W, and 32W
  • 100V: 8W, 16W, and 32W
  • 6Ω: Bypass

Safety Certifications: UL1480A, UL2043, CSA C22.2 No. 205-17

Mounting: The Atlas in-ceiling speaker includes integrated tile-bridge arms for quick and easy installation into drop ceilings.
