The SHS-6T2 is an industry-first strategically hidden ceiling speaker. It is designed to blend into the aesthetic of any ceiling while retaining optimal sound performance. The perfect speaker for architecturally impressive environments where you want your high-definition audio heard, not seen. SHS is easy to install and particularly useful for background music, paging/ notification and sound masking. It comes packaged with three different adaptive dispersion lenses for a variety of applications and installation locations.
Exotically different, perfectly disguised...
The SHS Series incorporates a radically different (and patented) waveguide design than any other ceiling speaker. Inside its concealed enclosure is a 2-way driver that provides high-definition sound. As the sound exits the two-way transducers, both pass through a patented adaptive diffuser lens for smooth and uniform frequency response throughout its intended ultra-wide coverage. Through years of research and design its acoustic frequencies are radiated evenly, diffusing away bothersome “hot spots” common to standard speakers making it a great solution for paging and background music as well as applications including sound masking.
The SHS ships with the ability to utilize the Adaptive Dispersion Lens in three different configurations for various applications. Sound masking installations and installations with low ceilings (less than 10') should use the 4mm dispersion lens with solid panel attached. Installations with ceilings between 10' and 14' should use the 8mm dispersion lens with the solid panel attached. Installations with ceiling heights above 14' or in applications that require maximum intelligibility, the 4mm dispersion lens should be used with the perforated panel attached.
Visually, only a 3-inch diameter lens and a micro trim ring are visible on the front of the ceiling. The SHS is an installer’s dream with an integrated rail system. All the installation parts are built into the enclosure including the tile rails, which require no rail screws for installation. Simply pull the four rails out from the enclosure and it’s ready for install, drill a three-inch hole in the ceiling tile, set the speaker through the hole, and snap on the adaptive dispersion lens.
Good Design Is Just As Important As Good Sound
The SHS can become a true chameleon by using the DesignLab™ by AtlasIED custom match process. When you purchase the SHS-CUST process, our state of the art UV printer can custom match the color and blend the texture of virtually any ceiling. This color match service delivers a lens and trim ring that will seamlessly match the color, design, and/or surface material of the ceiling. Remember to add the SHS-CUST to any SHS order that will be installed in striking, elegant or complex environments to maintain architectural continuity and design appeal.
