mounting system (Included)
• Front mounted tap selector switch for easy system tuning adjustments includes transformer
bypass setting for 8 ohm direct coupled operation

APPLICATIONS

FAP42TC combines superior coaxial loudspeaker performance with wide dispersion and easy
installation. A low profile enclosure and wide coverage make the FAP42TC a perfect choice for low
ceilings. The FAP42TC will satisfy the needs of owners, architects, contractors, and consultants
by delivering true, high fidelity sound reproduction in an attractive and easy-to-install system.
The FAP42TC is ideal for high-intelligibility voice, music, and signal reproduction in commercial,
industrial, and institutional applications.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION

The FAP42TC’s 130 degree dispersion angle effectively reduces the number of loudspeakers
necessary to achieve coverage in distributed systems with low ceilings.
The loudspeaker component matches the performance of the legendary Atlas Sound Strategy FA
Series. High quality construction 1" voice coil 4" coaxial cone type driver includes polypropylene
cone with a butyl rubber surround. The 19mm coaxially mounted tweeter is constructed of PEI.
This loudspeaker is factory assembled to 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 8 ohm operation.

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 (2) "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 FAP42TC. 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
conduit runs using flexible conduit. Wiring Terminals are concealed below this cover for easy
daisy chain wiring to other full range loudspeakers or Atlas Sound FASUB70 subwoofers. The
package includes an attractive press-fit grill 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 FAP42TC. Mounting holes are provided to
accommodate 16" or 24" OC stud/joist mounting.
A support ring is also provided on the top of the FAP42TC 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).
