6" coaxial in-ceiling speaker for distributed audio systems
Our take on the Atlas FAP6260T by Crutchfield's Eric Angevine
High-fidelity sound reproduction in an attractive and easy-to-install system
The Atlas FAP6260T can be the ideal speaker for a distributed audio installation in a room with high ceilings. The speaker's compact enclosure features a 60° narrow dispersion pattern and a built-in 60-watt transformer. A 6" paper composite woofer with rubber surround and a 3/4" coaxially mounted silk dome tweeter provide clear voice reproduction and background music for the office environment. The speaker is easy to install in drop tile or drywall ceilings, thanks to Atlas' dog leg tab system, and once it's in place, adjustments can be made via the front-mounted tap switch. Just pop the grille off, use a screwdriver to turn the tap, and pop the grille back on.

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. The included 24-gauge perforated steel grille has a white epoxy finish, and magnetically attaches to the speaker.
Drivers: The Atlas Sound FAP6260T is equipped with a 6" paper composite cone woofer with a 1" voice coil, and a Butyl Rubber surround. The 20mm (13/16") horn-loaded silk dome tweeter is coaxially-mounted over the woofer. The drivers are housed in a low-profile 365 in³ optimally tuned and ported, deep drawn, galvanized metal enclosure.
Wiring Options: The FAP6260T 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 3.8, 7.5, 15, 30, or 60-watt tap at 70.7V (7.5 to 60 watts at 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 impedance).
Speaker Placement: The Strategy Series II in-ceiling speaker mounts easily into existing construction drop ceiling or drywall with the provided tile bridge assembly. The tile bridge assembly consists of two V-shaped mounting rails and a C-ring assembly. "Dog Leg" tabs hold the speaker securely in place. The top of the FAP6260T enclosure includes a support ring for attaching the mandatory auxiliary support cable for drop ceiling installations for safety and seismic considerations.
