NORWOOD, MA (3/28/06) – Atlantic Technology has begun
shipping its corner-mounted 10 CSB subwoofer, designed for placement
in the corner of a theater to enhance bass performance while minimizing
visual impact on the room. The 180 Watt powered subwoofer features
a 10-inch down-firing woofer in a sealed enclosure that can be
painted to match the walls or décor to increase the 'stealth'
"This addresses a basic problem with theater
installations," said Atlantic Technology President Peter
Tribeman. "The customer wants great sound, but doesn't want
to see a box subwoofer in the room and doesn't want to cut into
their walls. What are they left with? We not only solved this
problem, we managed to come up with a system that actually performs
better, because it incorporates corner-loaded placement in the
Technology 10 CSB subwoofer
It has long been understood that placing a subwoofer in a corner
(known as corner loading) greatly increases deep bass response
and sound pressure level. The 10 CSB subwoofer takes advantage
of this fact, giving it substantially higher output and—because
of its specifically-tailored corner-mount equalization—improved
response when compared to ordinary box-type subwoofers. The equalization
in conventional boxed subwoofers is of necessity a compromise
because those subwoofers’ location in the room can’t
be known in advance.
The 10 CSB subwoofer uses a 10-inch long-throw
composite cone driver that features a vented motor structure and
oversized high temperature voice coil for improved performance
and reliability with even the most demanding sound effects. Like
all Atlantic Technology subwoofers, it employs a sealed enclosure
for smooth and linear bass response throughout the operating range.
The 180 Watt amplifier module is a high-current
design that delivers exceptional driver control and cool operation.
It is precision matched and equalized to the driver, and includes
a phase inversion switch and adjustable (40 Hz to 140 Hz) 18 dB/octave
crossover for proper integration with a range of satellite speakers.
It also features both low-level and high-level inputs for use
with nearly any amplification and satellite speaker combionation.
The Atlantic Technology 10 CSB is currently
available at a suggested retail price of $899.
