In continuing the tradition of our critically acclaimed in-wall speakers the MartinLogan dedicated in-house design and engineering team has looked skyward and developed their first line of reference quality in-ceiling loudspeakers. Delivering legendary MartinLogan build quality and superior sound performance in a very affordable, compact, high-resolution in-ceiling loudspeaker, Helos 12 allows even tight budgets to step up to MartinLogan quality. Helos 12 features a low-profile, bezzle-free design and paintable grill to discretely integrate into any home environment. Helos 12's precise 1-inch neodymium soft dome tweeter, high-rigidity aluminum cone woofer, and proprietary crossover topology allow Helos 12 to achieve surprising levels of bass response typically unheard of from an in-ceiling loudspeaker. Helos 12 effortlessly provides the extreme sonic accuracy you'd expect from a great floor standing speaker - with the design benefit of overhead placement for room 'invisibility'. Paying scrupulous attention to input from the professional installation trade, MartinLogan has overbuilt the hardware at every point for sure and solid mounting. Helos 12 is at home in a supporting role as a rear and side effects speaker in a multi-channel theater system or as a pair when true stereo is needed. Want a great 5.1 theater system? Use five Helos 12s and throw in an acclaimed MartinLogan subwoofer. Who says you can't get theater sound from an in-ceiling loudspeaker? Covering the full range of sound, these speakers are remarkably easy to drive with even modest electronics, yet can easily fill a room with sound. Helos 12 can support a whole home, multiroom plan by offering use in less critical rooms than its more ambitious brother.
