This is the 5th generation of VISATON'sclassic ATLAS COMPACT loudspeaker design. Once again it features the DSM 25 FFL and DSM 50 FFL dome loudspeakers, with the low to mid-range is covered by the AL 170. However new to this version is the introduction of the TIW 300 as the woofer.Specifications -
The crossover too has been thoroughly reviewed. The separating frequency between the woofer and low to mid-range unit has been set at 220 Hz. Thanks to this relatively low separating frequency, the bass is particularly powerful between 50 and 100 Hz. This is accompanied, however, by a reduction in impedance in this range of frequencies. There is compensation for the increased impedance in the woofer (KN 27 mH, 330 F) which prevents this low impedance curve, but this also reduces the bass output level at 80 Hz by around 3 dB (red line below 100 Hz). This can be a great advantage in rooms where the bass output level is boosted excessively by resonance. Where the output level is more important and a reduction in nominal impedance at 80 Hz to 4 ohms is acceptable, the impedance compensation is simply deactivated to produce the higher frequency graph. In this way, the ATLAS COMPACT MK V offers a tangible advantage in that the bass output level can be trimmed to suit the listening room.
The broad chamfers in the upper part of the baffle give the cabinet a slimmer appearance while, at the same time, avoiding the build-up of corner reflection in the sensitive mid- and high-ranges.
Overall the ATLAS COMPACT MK V is a very dynamic speaker with powerful bass reproduction, neutral voice reproduction and crystal-clear high-frequency sounds without sharp edges.

To compliment the loudspeaker kits, we offer an ever-expanding range of cabinets.
The ATLAS COMPACT MK Vcabinets are supplied in four different options as shown below, all are fully CNC machined and rebated from 18mm MDF.
Cabinets supplied as a self-assembly flat-pack in either plain mdf or pre-veneered mdf of your choice. Both options are fully machined and rebated which means that the components all slot together very easily, just needing to be glued with the PVA wood adhesive that is provided. All the necessary holes and rebates for the drive units are pre-machined so you can assemble the cabinets without having any wood-work skills.
Factory built option:
Cabinets are supplied fully assembled eliminating the need for you to undertake any construction. The plain mdf cabinets are supplied assembled but unfinished ready for you to apply your own paint finish and fit the drive units etc,.
The veneered cabinets are supplied assembled and lacquered to a furniture finish. We can fit all the drive units, crossovers etc, to these veneered cabinets at no extra charge so your loudspeakers are fully built and ready to plug and play.
Price per pair excluding VAT
Use the drop down box to chose your kit option. The options allow you to buy this loudspeaker kit with or without cabinets. Cabinets can be flat-packed or fully built up, in plain unfinished mdf or veneered mdf
