Overview: Atlas Sound Strategy Series II in-ceiling speakers are designed for
commercial, industrial, and institutional applications. They are known for
highly detailed voice, music, and signal reproduction. The speakers feature a white frame, and can be easily
installed in drop-tile or drywall ceilings using a number of mounting options.

Drivers: The Atlas Sound FAP42T is equipped with a
4" polypropylene woofer with a 1" voice coil, and a Butyl Rubber surround. The 19mm (3/4") PEI
dome tweeter is coaxially-mounted over the woofer. The drivers are housed in a
low-profile 285 in³ optimally tuned and ported, deep drawn, galvanized metal enclosure.
Wiring Options: The FAP42T has a removable 4-pole Phoenix
style / Euro connector for 70.7V, 100V, or 8Ω applications. This type of
connector allows you to conveniently pre-wire the speaker connections, then
simply plug them in when installing the speakers. The connector can accept bare wire
up to 14-gauge speaker wire. The speaker is equipped with line
matching transformers, requiring an amplifier capable of driving a 70.7V/100V
line. Depending upon the amplifier's wattage rating and the number of speakers
being driven by the amplifier, you can select a 1, 2, 4, 8, or 16-watt tap at
70.7V/100V. The tap selector is conveniently located on the front of the
speaker, allowing you to set or change the taps without removing the speaker. You can also bypass the line transformers and connect the speaker to
a consumer amplifier (the speaker has an 8Ω

ring may be used to mark the location for drywall installers to cut around.
Mounting holes in the trim ring accommodate 16" or 24" on-center joist mounting.
The top of the FAP42T enclosure includes a support ring for attaching the
mandatory auxiliary support cable for drop ceiling installations for safety and
