ATC to launch wall-mounted versions of its classic loudspeakers

null

If you like ATC's speakers but are short of space, then you're in luck. The company has remodelled three of its models into wall-hung units.

The speakers in question are the SCM7, SCM40 and the Award-winning SCM11. The latter two received five-star reviews when we tested them.

These speakers comprise ATC's first range of high-performance on-wall speakers for the custom residential market. They come in three sizes, and can be mounted horizontally or vertically, depending on your set-up.

The HTS7, HTS11 and HTS40 are configured vertically, while the HTS7C, HTS11C and HTS40C are their horizontal counterparts. They all feature the proprietary ATC drive-unit technology as used in their classic brethren, with SH25-76 dual-suspension tweeters and constrained-layer damping. The HTS11 also features mid/bass drivers, and the HTS40 boasts ATC's 75mm soft-dome midrange and 164mm short-coil/long-gap bass drivers.

ATC has revised its crossover designs to suit the wall-mounted situation.

The HTS7/HTS7C is the smallest of the range, ideal for small- to medium-sized rooms. The step up is the HTS11/HTS11C, while the HTS40/HTS40C is the biggest of the bunch. All six can also be used as surround-sound speakers.

The HTS7 models cost £475, the HTS11 £685 and the HTS40 £1950. All will be available in July.
