Not all sound needs to be flaunted. If you’re in need of a stealth solution, Atlantic Technology has five new ceiling speakers to conceal sound from your eyes, while making music (and other sounds) for your ears.

First up is the ICTS-6HT. This in-ceiling speaker is designed to be used as any of the front channels (left, center, right) in a home theater system. The versatility comes from the speaker’s 6.5-inch polypropylene woofer, which is mounted at a 15-degree angle. That way, it can be directed towards the listener. This is all while the tweeter is offering up to 30 degrees of pivoting action.

The same speaker features built-in tweeter level controls and a woofer-level/boundary compensation adjustment. This one is available now for $400 each.

If you can wait a few weeks, Atlantic will soon unleash four new speakers under the Trim-Look Ceiling line. Each of these has a thin magnetic grille, which is designed to disappear into the decor. 

The top two models, the TLC-6.3 and TLC-8.3, are Tri-Mode speakers with dual-voice-coil woofers and two pivoting tweeters. Each one has separate left- and right-channel input terminals, input jumpers and a built-in bipole/dipole switch. All of that means they can be used for mono, single-point stereo, or as a surround speaker.

Two other Trim-Look models, the TLC-6.2 and TLC-8.2, are a bit more conventional. The single-channel 6.5- and 8-inch (respectively) two-way speakers each have a 1-inch soft dome tweeter that can pivot up to 30 degrees for customized listening.

All four of the Trim-Look Ceiling speakers are expected to ship during the last week of March. The TLC-6.3 and TLC-8.3 will be priced at $325 and $450, respectively. The TLC-6.2 has an MSRP of $250 each, with the TLC-8.2 coming in at $325.
