Our take on the Artison LRS by Crutchfield's Chris Egner
Enjoy spacious, high-impact surround sound
These on-wall speakers deliver enveloping sound for your home theater's surround channels — mood-setting ambient effects and exciting action sequences that bring your movies and TV shows to life. Artison teams up a high-performance Kevlar® midrange driver with two 1" tweeters spaced 90° apart. This arrangement helps the speaker deliver ambient effects in a full 180° arc, creating spacious sound that's hard for your ears to pinpoint.
Wall-mount the LRS surrounds with the included brackets. These low-profile speakers extend just 3" from your walls, so they blend in easily.
Looking for surround speakers that blend in even better with your room? Check out Artison's in-wall surround speakers.

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 white grille.
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.
