Artcoustic – The Perfect Home Cinema Speaker System!
High Quality Speakers that Hang on the Wall like Pictures
Artcoustic specialise in making loudspeakers which look and sound amazing – our customers choose them like any other piece of furniture or artwork. As Artcoustic Dealers we specialise in designing home cinema systems and multi-room audio systems which excel. The modular design allows us to design an Artcoustic speaker package for any size of space and most budgets. The speakers are incredibly thin (67mm deep on some models!) and sit on the wall. The actual speaker grill can be a single colour, a piece of artwork chosen from the extensive range or one supplied by yourselves. We can even span artwork across multiple speakers so your favourite panoramic picture can occupy the front channels in your surround sound home cinema system. Artcoustic speakers can rival any of the traditional ‘big box’ speakers in terms of audio quality yet look good in the home – there is no reason to compromise! The Artcoustic range fits in perfectly with our usual home cinema design style: front channels can be wall mounted behind either a fixed or retractable electric screen. Due to the slim design of the Artcoustic range we like to install banks of surround speakers, ensuring the sound envelopes you better than a traditional rear driven surround sound system and provides the same experience no matter where you sit in the room. The Artcoustic range even includes subwoofers, again, as wall-mounted flat panels, enabling us to keep the subwoofer close to the audience and be fully integrated into the room. We now have a dedicated page featuring various designs of Artcoustic Home Cinema packages.
Artcoustic DF Multi Speaker – a Perfect Match for Flat Screens
Although we love installing surround systems, we appreciate they aren’t compatible for every room – bedrooms and kitchens may have TV screens installed but it might be impractical to install full-blown surround sound systems. Previously, the options have been to either install stereo in-ceiling speakers or just use the speakers on the TV screen – hardly solutions which will impress. The Artcoustic DF Multi solves this problem beautifully: one speaker is installed beneath the TV screen and provides quality audio for the left/centre/right channels. Three sizes, designed for 42″, 50″ and 60″ wide screens ensure that the speakers look at home in any environment. You also have access to the full range of Artcoustic fabrics and finishes, guaranteed to enhance any interior. Should you wish full surround sound, the system is easily expandable by adding in Diablo Target rear speakers and a Diablo Subwoofer panel, granting access to full surround sound at a reasonable budget. The rears and subwoofer are of the same slim and discreet design as the rest of the range, guaranteeing excellent acoustics and aesthetics.
Artcoustic On-Wall Subwoofers
The problem with many in-ceiling and on-wall speakers systems is the difficulty of getting good bass – after all who wants to invest time and money on hiding speakers away and then having to accommodate a large, ugly box in one corner. Artcoustic have the answer: they have a multitude of options available all of which can tastefully blend in with or enhance your interior. The Diablo subwoofer is small and discreet yet packs a hefty punch. It’s designed to become part of the DF Multi range and complements the Diablo Targets and Monitors perfectly. Covered in the designer fabric of your choice the Diablo Sub will blend in with any interior while still lending the sound impact and depth. Slightly larger than the Diablo sub panel, the DFS75-55 features 2 x 10″ drive units and is designed to be used in conjunction with the DF75-55 full range loudspeakers. There is also a DFS100-75 which is constructed to match the appearance of the DF100-75 full range speaker.
On-Wall Speakers to Deliver a High End Home Cinema Experience
All the Home Cinemas in our portfolio were created using Artcoustic Loudspeakers. The Artcoustic Home Cinema Speakers range is huge and enables us to build up packages of speakers to suit any requirements – from on-wall under TV soundbars through to huge speaker arrays containing the full range speakers and subwoofers. The modular design, coupled with a small installation footprint, is perfect for Home Cinema Rooms. At only 67mm deep we can easily install front speakers behind projector screens – either three or five front channels depending on the configuration required. Subwoofers are installed below the screen as either a standalone subwoofer channel (deep bass from any channel is routed through these speakers) or as a bass management channel. The latter utilises active crossovers to reinforce each audio channel, so the centre speaker has its own subwoofer and the same for other front channels.
The shallow mounting depth allows easy installation of surround channels producing superb audio for side and rear channels. In our larger Trinnov 3D audio home cinema rooms, we can utilise the same approach with subwoofers as the front channels and install multiple surround speakers at differing heights to produce a truly unrivalled 3D audio experience.
Artcoustic Performance Speakers
Perfect for Living Room Cinemas too:
Living Room Home Cinemas must strike a balance between performance and aesthetics – hiding speakers is more difficult than in a dedicated cinema room with an acoustically transparent projector screen to hide them behind. Luckily Artcoustic have a number of solutions to enable us to integrate audio:
Custom RAL colours on cabinets and grilles ensures speakers blend in to their environment (the speakers match the Farrow and Ball paint!).
Custom Width sound bars enable us to match the speaker to the width of TV, ensuring an integrated aesthetic.
Custom grille artwork allows us to hide speakers in plain sight as artwork. Client supplied digital artwork can be printed on the grilles.
The Artcoustic Performance Range
The Performance range from Artcoustic is a groundbreaking range of speakers containing modular array speakers. The range centers around the stunning P12-6 array speaker which is designed to be used as a single speaker or mounted as multiple arrays with adjustable angles. This flexibility in configuration and installation allows us to create perfect audio environments, particularly when driven by a Trinnov Home Cinema audio solution. The P12-6 is designed to be partnered with the Performance range of subwoofers, such as the PS6 Subwoofer – containing 6 x 10″ drive units – ensuring very high sound pressure levels.
This flexible approach to audio ensures we can design very flexible home cinema audio systems – delivering on aesthetics and audio perfection!
