Artcoustic’s Installation of the Month: Webstract Transform Open Plan Living

Artcoustic speakers are used throughout this Webstract installation, with 40-30 SL 6-3 and an Impact 2 subwoofer installed in the open plan dining area.

In-ceiling Architect SL 2-1s are used in the kitchen area, and Architect SL 4-2s in the lounge space, tonally matching the audio throughout.

The TV room is separated from the open plan main living space, allowing for a serious audio system to be designed and installed, naturally with Dolby Atmos. The 5.1.2 configuration is achieved with SL 4-2 left and right of the screen, with a Multi SL Soundbar beneath for the centre channel. Rear channels are Target SL, with Architect SL 2-1 for the overheads. An Impact 2 subwoofer delivers the LFE, and the finished system looks and sounds superb.

40-30 SL 6-3

The 40-30 SL 6-3, together with an Impact 2 subwoofer, is used for the main source in this open plan home. The 6-3 configuration has a sensitivity of 98db, and can play up to 115db, making it an incredibly dynamic option. Partnered with an appropriate subwoofer such as the Impact 2 or Impact 3, and the end result can be superb.

The 6-3 variation is available in the compact form of the 40-30 SL (40cm x 30cm), as well as the SL 6-3 (50cm x 37cm) and the Spitfire 6-3, depending upon application and aesthetics. The performance remains the same.
