4" pendant speaker for distributed audio systems (White)
Our take on the Atlas PM4FA by Crutchfield's Eric Angevine
A sound solution for high ceilings
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.

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
