…& why it’s important!

A well-designed, well-specified cinema can be a truly magical experience. Designing a cinema is technically challenging, with every design decision having an impact on other factors. Seating position, screen size, image brightness, loudspeaker positioning and dynamic range are just some of the key considerations for our design & installation teams.

By Dolby Atmos standards, a well-designed cinema should be able to achieve at least 105 db from each speaker in the listening position. If the speaker is not capable of this, a huge part of the excitement and dynamic range will be missing from the overall performance. While industry standards give us the ideal parameters to aim for, specifying the right speakers will guarantee the very best performance, just as the film director intended.


The modular format of our speaker range allows for cinemas, from the smallest snug to the largest auditorium, to be designed correctly.

A typical Hi-Fi speaker is designed using high frequency drivers and single dome tweeters, which work well within smaller spaces, but don’t deliver the output needed for larger, longer distance applications.

Pro-speakers, on the other hand, are based around compression horn drivers, which have the quality of very high output that travels well over distance. However, compression horns can be aggressive sounding and require deeper cabinets, taking up valuable space in the room.

Artcoustic’s design is a rare hybrid between the two. Our unique array technology uses high-frequency drivers and single-dome tweeters in multiples enabling our speakers to achieve incredibly high sound pressure levels without the need for a compression horn.

The result is incredible dynamic range, extremely low distortion and stunning accuracy, all housed in a slimline, lightweight cabinet, that’s easy to install and fits discreetly behind any screen.
