Artcoustic’s installation of the month for November is one of the first completed Dolby Atmos home cinemas installed using Artcoustic speakers. The brief was simple: to "deliver a stunning home cinema room without breaking the budget. Keep it sensible."
Simply Cinemas in the UK was chosen to deliver the system and the company spent a lot of time with the staff at Artcoustic HQ to ensure the design and specification was correct for the cutting-edge Dolby Atmos technology.
The finished system more than delivers on the brief, featuring Artcoustic Spitfire 6-3 speakers and two Control 3 Subwoofers installed behind the acoustically transparent Screen Excellence 4K screen, and Target SL for surrounds with Architect SL2-1 for the overhead speakers in a 5.1.2 configuration.
The finished result is outstanding. Dolby Atmos 5.1.2 deliver incredible power and detail through the Artcoustic loudspeaker system, with an installed complete system price tag under £25,000.
Left, centre and right speakers installed correctly behind the screen
All three LCR loudspeakers are installed where they should be in any well-designed home cinema system, behind the acoustically transparent screen. Two power Artcoustic Spitfire Control 3 Subwoofers are also installed behind it, keeping the aesthetics very clean.
Artcoustic Spitfire series
The Spitfire series includes five models intended to be used behind acoustically transparent screens. The Spitfire 6-3 is used for left, centre and right duties in this installation. The full, scalable range allows for reference performance levels to be achievable in almost any sized room.
