General Description
Architect & Engineer Specifications
The FAP42T's 130˚ dispersion angle effectively reduces the number of
loudspeakers necessary to achieve coverage in distributed systems with
low ceilings.
System shall include a high performance 4" coaxial loudspeaker,
ported bass reflex enclosure and press-fit grille for conventional ceiling
installation.
The loudspeaker component matches the performance of the legendary
Atlas Sound Strategy FA Series. High quality construction 4" coaxial cone
type driver includes a 1” voice coil and polypropylene cone with a butyl
rubber surround. The 19mm coaxially mounted tweeter is constructed
of PEI. A high sensitivity level means less power may be required to
achieve the desired SPL. This loudspeaker is factory assembled in an
optimally tuned & ported deep drawn enclosure and includes a specially
designed 16 Watt low saturation 70.7V / 100V transformer. A convenient
front mounted selector switch allows tap selection without the need to
remove the speaker from the ceiling. This switch also includes a transformer bypass setting for 8Ω direct coupled operation.
Frequency response for the system shall be 75Hz – 20kHz (±7dB).
Sensitivity shall be 88dB average. Loudspeaker shall be comprised of a 4"
coaxial cone driver constructed of polypropylene with a butyl rubber surround. The 19mm tweeter shall be constructed of PEI. Magnet shall be a
minimum of 10oz. (264g) and the voice coil diameter shall be 1” (25mm).
Mounting Accessories
Mounting is simplified with Strategy style “Dog Leg” tabs that allow
easy installation into drop tile or drywall ceilings with provided tile bridge
assembly. The tile bridge consists of two “V” shaped formed mounting
rails and a C-Ring assembly. The C-Ring can be attached to the rails with
the screws provided to extend support to the T-Bar grid in suspended
ceiling applications. Multiple hole locations are provided to allow the
C-Ring to be positioned to the outer edge the tile if necessary.
For existing dry-wall applications the tile bridge C-Ring and support rails
can be inserted into the hole cut for the FAP42T. For easy positioning the
“V” shaped support rails match the shape of the C-Ring tabs for easy
maneuvering and location when working “blindly” above the deck
A uniquely designed “easy access” input panel on the side of the enclosure allows for “thru” conduit runs using flexible or rigid conduit. Below
this cover resides a detachable Phoenix style locking four-pole connector which provides for easy daisy chain wiring to other full range 70.7V
loudspeakers or Atlas Sound FASUB subwoofer. The package includes an
attractive press-fit grille which nicely matches contemporary architecture.
For new construction drywall ceiling applications, the optional FAP42-TR
trim ring is available. This unit provides a marked location for drywall
installers to cut around essentially reserving the desired location in the
ceiling until final installation of FAP42T. Mounting holes are provided to
accommodate 16" or 24" OC stud / joist mounting.
Transformer shall be a 70.7V / 100V type with 1, 2, 4, 8, and 16 watt primary taps (@70.7V) with a front mounted tap selector switch to include a
transformer bypass setting for 8Ω / direct coupled operation.
Enclosure shall be a deep drawn steel enclosure design. Internal volume
shall be 285 in3. To facilitate connection in conduit systems, enclosure
shall be equipped with an access panel covering a recessed terminal cup.
This cover shall provide a combination 3⁄4" (19mm inside diameter) / 1"
(25mm inside diameter) knock-out on the side access and a top access
compression fitting / strain relief to facilitate flexible conduit up to 22mm
outside diameter or 1 in (25mm inside diameter) conduit when the compression fitting is removed.
External wiring shall be accomplished via a removable lockable wiring
connector with screw-down terminals to provide both secure wire termination and pre-wiring capability before loudspeaker installation. The 4-pole
locking connector shall facilitate in / out connections and shall be located
in the recessed area behind the conduit access panel.
Seismic support eye shall be provided on top of enclosure for additional suspension point when used in drop tile ceilings. Construction of
enclosure shall be a minimum of 18-gauge, deep drawn galvanized metal.
The system shall include a support backing plate to reinforce the ceiling material and tile support rails for use on either 2' x 4' (609mm x
1219mm) or 2' x 2' (609mm x 609mm) suspended ceiling tiles. This
assembly can all be installed from beneath the ceiling tile.
Overall front face diameter shall not exceed 101⁄2" (267mm); overall depth
from the bottom of the ceiling shall not exceed 87⁄8" (225mm). Grilles shall
be press-fit, manufactured from 24-gauge perforated steel mesh and finished in white epoxy. Round grille shall be 87⁄16" (214mm) diameter.
The loudspeaker shall be the Atlas Sound FAP42T.
A support ring is also provided on the top of the FAP42T enclosure to
facilitate an auxiliary support cable.
NOTE: IT IS MANDATORY THAT THIS SECONDARY SUPPORT
BE UTILIZED IN DROP CEILINGS FOR SAFETY AND SEISMIC
CONSIDERATIONS).
