Atlas Sound FA97-8
Ceiling Speaker Enclosure

OUR PART #  FA97-8

Strategy Series 8" loudspeaker enclosures are acoustically-treated, front-loading units, equipped for installation in ceilings up to 11/4" thick. Model FA97-8  feature depths of 7-5/8". The FA97-8 allows for extended low-frequency response and is also lined with sound-deadening, 5/16" thick acoustic batting (2 lb./cu.ft. density) and features an acoustic fiber board bottom to prevent "oil canning". The two back boxes are equipped with conduit knockouts and are available without knockouts (NK) to meet respective building code requirements. Enclosures are constructed of CRS (22-ga. top ring & 20-ga. bottom/sides) and include four threaded inserts for loudspeaker installation and three stud receptacles for accepting Strategy Series grilles. Both models are finished in black epoxy.

Model FA97-8 installs quickly and easily in plaster, drywall, or suspended tile ceilings up to 11/4" thick utilizing three, easy-to-adjust rotating clamps that rotate and secure into position with a screwdriver. The enclosures front-load Atlas Sound's Strategy Series 8" dia. loudspeaker Models FA138 and FA118. (Refer to SL1-1539 and SL1-1536 for respective loudspeaker specifications and loudspeaker/transformer model numbers.) This direct loudspeaker to-enclosure mounting method removes all load-bearing requirements from the grille, allowing the use of welded studs for convenient, push-on grille installation — a time-saving feature which presents a clean and hardware-free appearance. It also facilitates fast and easy grille removal for painting or other maintenance.

FA97-8 Enclosures allow the high-performance coaxial FA138 and FA118 loudspeaker to achieve maximum potential. This high-quality loudspeaker/enclosure combination is perfect for applications where high-fidelity music and intelligible speech are imperative.
