Overview

Our take on the Atlas PM4FA

In a room with high ceilings, standard speakers may not give ideal coverage. This 4" pendant speaker from Atlas offers a 90° dispersion pattern with excellent off-axis performance, so customers seated below hear music and announcements clearly. A built-in 70-volt transformer is tapped at 1, 2, 4, 8, and 16 watts, providing flexibility for large and small distributed audio systems. Cable suitable for suspending the speaker from the ceiling is included.

Great sound!

Jason from Sioux Falls, SD on 9/13/2017

These blew my mind. For the money, I was expecting something decent, but nothing that sounds as good as these. I bought these with a large order for my brewery/taproom and couldn't be happier. Sound great out of the box, and even better after a little EQ tweak. I would highly recommend these for spaces that have high ceilings that need a lot of sound dispersement.

Pros: Best speakers at this price point for sure. Easy to install/fly and very easy to hook up.

Cons: None so far!

Overview: The Atlas Sound PM4FA-B is a pendant-mount speaker system, equipped with a Model FA134 high-performance 4" Strategy Series driver. It's the same driver used in the FAP42T in-ceiling speaker. The PM4FA-B is ideal for both music and paging applications. The speaker is mounted in an attractive down-firing enclosure, designed for low-height installations.

Transformer: The speaker is equipped with a 70V 16-watt transformer with a hidden screw terminal block for bare wire or spade lugs. It has primary taps of 1, 2, 4, 8, and 16 watts, as well as an 8Ω bypass.

Installation: The PM4FA-B pendant-mount speaker comes with a 3-meter length of 2mm cable with a self-gripping ferrule system for open beam installation. For down pipe installation from hard ceiling material, any 3/4"-diameter ceiling fan installation kit may be utilized.

Not in a location where it can be seen, no. You can see the "ISO9001" and "UL" certification badges on the "Specs" pages of the owner's manual. You can download a copy of the manual by clicking the link for it just under the "What's in the Box?" heading on the speaker's main webpage. [ Ryan  Jul 26, 2017 ]  Staff
