Fusion Flat panel series

Look up on the side and rear walls of a large cinema and you will often see flat panel type speakers. Here is a range of home theatre rear, surround or even front main speakers that can be used in a similar wall hugging fashion. In no way has the performance of these speakers been compromised, they are all exceptionally clear and accurate performers, adding the realism to movies or music you would expect from a high quality speaker, and drawing you into the experience.

Frequency Response: 80 -- 30,000 Hertz +/-2dB
Sensitivity: 90dB 1w/1m
Drivers: 4 x 85mm wide range drivers; 3 x 25mm dome tweeters
Description: This is a new and unique diffuse surround speaker design for home use that takes its design cue from true professional surround speakers used in actual cinemas, where  four or six speakers all projecting the same signal are lined along the side walls to give a diffuse surround effect that does not indicate the direction of the source. This effect is necessary for rain storms, background sounds etc., as used in movies for ambient effects.  The F63FK surround array arranges four small wide range drivers and three tweeters in a single, conveniently sized long thin speaker that can be easily mounted on the side walls to create this effect.  (Of course, in larger rooms, four of the F502PS model speakers above could be used on the side walls instead, in exactly the same manner they do at the cinema.)
