Home theater enthusiasts are excited about Dolby Atmos' elevated sound technology, which creates a Height channel sound experience. The SP-T22A-LR add-on speakers were designed to add to your current compact speaker or floorstanding front speakers. Upgrading your AVR and adding on the Pioneer Add-on speakers allows for Dolby Atmos content to come alive. The SP-T22A-LR uses an upward-firing concentric driver array to reflect sound off the ceiling to produce a truly heightened sound experience while integrating with your already established home theater system. The SP-T22A-LR was designed for use with the Pioneer SP-BS22-LR compact speaker or SP-FS52 floorstanding speakers, but are also compatible with most speakers that have a flat top big enough to fit the SP-T22A-LR. Add two SP-T22A-LRs and a Dolby Atmos-enabled receiver, to upgrade your existing surround sound to Dolby Atmos.
Taking Atmos One Step Further
The SP-T22A-LR elevates your home theater to a higher level of performance through the use of a two-way upward-firing speaker -- in this case a concentric driver with a 1/2-inch tweeter mounted in the center of a 4-inch woofer. This arrangement allows the SP-T22A-LR to produce music and sound effects with greater realism and detail.
More Than an Add-On Speaker
Even though the SP-T22A-LR is designed as an add-on speaker for Dolby Atmos, it's built like a true high-end speaker. The SP-T22A-LR has many of the same design features that made our award-winning SP-BS22-LR compact speakers, a stand out for reviewers and consumers alike. Similar to the SP-BS22-LR compact speakers, the SP-T22A-LR's cabinet is curved, which stiffens the enclosure to help eliminate vibration. The result is accurate, tight, and more powerful bass.
The insides of the SP-T22A-LR are just as sophisticated as the outside. These add-on speakers incorporate a unique multi-element crossover to send the bass and midrange to the woofer and the high frequencies to the tweeter. This advanced circuit tunes the SP-T22A-LR so it delivers the directional, focused sound required for Dolby Atmos, yet also matches the tone and fidelity of our standard compact and floorstanding speakers.
A True Two Way Driver
The core of the SP-T22A-LR is an upward-firing concentric speaker array with a 1/2-inch soft-dome tweeter mounted in the center of a 4-inch woofer. The SP-T22A-LR's tweeter is the key to the add-on speaker's superior sound quality with high-frequency reproduction comparable to that of a high-quality conventional speaker. Because the tweeter is mounted at the center of the woofer, the cone acts as a ?horn" to control the tweeter's dispersion. The 4-inch woofer used in the SP-T22A-LR uses a cone with a textured surface, which makes it stiffer than a flat-surfaced cone. This design pushes distortion to much higher frequencies, far outside the woofer's effective range, so the SP-T22A-LR can play much louder without audible distortion. Thanks to the separate woofer and tweeter, the SP-T22A-LR has much more natural and spacious-sounding treble than Atmos-compatible speakers that use a full-range driver.
The SP-T22A-LR add-on speakers can transform your conventional 5.1 or 7.1 home theater system into an immersive cinematic experience. Paired with a Dolby Atmos enabled AV receiver, these add-on speakers make upgrading your home theater seamless, convenient and affordable.
