Atlantic Technology Debuts SB8 High-Performance
Compact Powered Subwoofer

NORWOOD, MA (1/31/17) – Atlantic Technology has introduced its SB8 compact down-firing 125-watt subwoofer as the perfect companion to any home theater speaker, soundbar, or compact music system. .

Atlantic Technology's Most Discreet Home Theater System

NORWOOD, MASS -- The Atlantic Technology Model 3.1 HSB is a low-profile TV speaker base housing left, center and right speakers powered by your home theater receiver, and a deep-bass "H-PAS-enabled" down-firing subwoofer with its own 80 watt amplifier. All this is enclosed in a compact sturdy stealth-black cabinet that is 4-3/4 inches high, 36 inches wide, and 16 inches deep, and designed to support any flat panel TV up to 60 inches wide.

The Atlantic Technology 3.1 HSB is designed to take advantage of advanced home theater sound processing technologies built into most modern AV receivers to generate a compelling home theater experience. It provides options to add optional "real" surround speakers - combined with a real H-PAS subwoofer that delivers room-shaking bass down to 35 Hz.  AV receiver based sound processing is generally superior to the bare-bones processing found in most soundbars.When used with the receiver's processing and additional surround speakers it will sound as good or better than many 5.1 and 7.1 theater systems with dedicated front speakers.

All of these formats are modeled on the latest "object-based" sound systems and sound tracks that have been developed to provide the audience with a totally immersive sound field.

The IC-6-OBA contains a high dynamic range 6-inch woofer coupled with a pair of one-inch tweeters designed to produce a "wide scatter." Most other in-ceiling designs tend to have a narrow dispersion and can create audible "hot spots'' to listeners ....more

Atlantic Technology's H-PAS™ PowerBar 235 is the First Soundbar that Doesn't Need a Subwoofer -- demonstrations at CEA Line Show

NEW YORK (6/27/12) -- Atlantic Technology will demonstrate its revolutionary H–PAS home theater soundbar loudspeaker at the CEA Line Show opening here today.

While most soundbars need to be paired with bulky separate subwoofers to achieve full-range sound with adequate bass performance, the Atlantic Technology PowerBar PB-235 delivers full-range performance with rich bass response down to 47 Hz without the need for a separate subwoofer. It also accomplishes this with much lower levels of harmonic distortion, a performance characteristic reflected in exceptional dialog clarity and intelligibility. 

The PowerBar PB-235 was designed using Atlantic Technology's H-PAS™ design algorithms to create an optimal acoustic pathway of chambers, galleries, traps, and vents for the sound generated by the back-sides of the two small woofers.


Atlantic Technology Demonstrates its AT-2 H-PAS™ Technology Bookshelf Loudspeakers at the 2012 CEA Line Show -- Best of Show Finalist

NEW YORK (6/27/12) -- Atlantic Technology's new AT-2 compact bookshelf loudspeakers use the company's revolutionary H-PAS™ bass technology to deliver much higher levels of deep, low distortion bass than is possible with conventional speakers of the same size.  This is the same technology used in the company's AT-1 floor-standing speaker that has earned rave reviews from the audio press.

The new Atlantic Technology AT–2 is less than 16 inches tall and has an interior acoustic volume of less than 2/3-cubic foot, yet it delivers full, rich bass response down to 41 Hz at -3dB, which equates to exceptional bass performance for such a small speaker.

The Atlantic Technology AT-2 bookshelf loudspeaker uses a single 5-1/4-inch long-excursion woofer and the same 1-1/8-inch Low Resonance Tweeter (LRT™) used in the AT-1. It has a crossover frequency of 2,200 Hz, which is much lower than most conventional two-way speakers, affording much wider horizontal midrange dispersion.

Atlantic Technology will offer both models going forward at the same $349 suggested retail price.

While the new Atlantic Technology SB-900DF is relatively small, its deep, low distortion bass is fast and muscular. The 8-inch long-excursion woofer ....

The technology was first publicly demonstrated in prototype form at the CEDIA Expo in September. 

"We are particularly pleased with the final design of the Atlantic Technology AT-1 and how well it conforms to the calculated performance of the H-PAS matrix," said company president, Peter Tribeman. "It retains the compact size and attractive appearance of the prototype we showed last fall, but has more acoustic weight and a more commanding, and authoritative sound. The AT-1 is uniquely well-suited to both music and home theater roles, and is equally at home in virtually any sized room."

Atlantic Technology Debuts New Home Theater Speaker Systems and Box Subwoofer Lineup

Atlantic Technology, the premier manufacturer of loudspeakers and subwoofers designed expressly for home theater, has introduced three new compact speaker systems, and a new line of box subwoofers. The new lineup marks the most substantial redesign of the company's freestanding speaker offerings in over five years.

"Over the last few years, we've focused our research and development programs primarily on our in-wall and in-ceiling products," comments Atlantic Technology president Peter Tribeman. "Much of that research, which has paid off so handsomely in our architectural speaker offerings, has substantial application for freestanding speakers as well - and we decided that it was time to upgrade those series as well."

The new compact speaker introductions consist of three separate multichannel speaker systems, designated the Atlantic Technology System 1400, System 2400, and the THX Select certified System 4400; these series replace the company's acclaimed System 1200, 2200, and 4200e. Each of these series consists of three models, a two-way LR front channel speaker, two-way horizontal MTM center channel, and a dipole/bipole selectable surround channel speaker. Each series is intended for use with any of the company's subwoofer offerings, allowing dealers and consumers to specify speaker packages to accommodate a wide range of theater rooms and listening preferences.

New features across the Atlantic Technology home theater speaker offerings include the addition of the company's LRT (Low Resonance Tweeter) in the System 1400 and 2400, new on-wall mounting capabilities for the System 4400, and updated aesthetics to match the company's larger floorstanding speaker lines. Also, an entirely new speaker, the dipole/bipole selectable System 1400 SR-Z, is expected to find widespread application as the height channel speaker in home theater systems equipped with the new Dolby ProLogic IIz audio technology. The 1400 SR-Z is also well suited for conventional applications as the left/right or rear surround channels in 5.1 and 7.1-channel theater systems.

Atlantic Technology Surround Speaker Ideal for New Height Channel Applications

Atlantic Technology has introduced a new dipole/bipole selectable surround speaker designed specifically with height-speaker channel applications in mind. The new Atlantic Technology 1400 SR-z's compact size and shallow profile allow it to be mounted high on the wall above the system's front speakers, making it ideal for use in home theater systems employing the new Dolby ProLogic IIz sound format, which calls for a pair of 'surround' channels to provide sound effects and ambience over the listener's head.

Dolby Pro Logic IIz adds a new dimension of sonic information to movies, games, and music through the addition of a pair of 'height channel' speakers mounted above the front LR speakers. These new channels process the non-directional sonic information already present in audio content, generating a more spacious and enveloping surround soundfield than was previously possible from any stereo or multichannel source material.

"We were all very proud to be invited to join with Onkyo in this competition, and are even more thrilled to have won," said Atlantic Technology President, Peter Tribeman. "When you combine the best speakers with the best electronics, and put some of the industry's smartest minds into the room set up, it is hard to go wrong. With the expert help of Onkyo's product manager, Brian Sandifer and our own Jason Marcure, both companies spent many hours setting up the room to get it just right. With DVD Audio disc pressings of the Beatles' Eleanor Rigby along with a clip from Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull on Blu-ray in Dolby True HD mode, the results were simply amazing."

"The only thing better than a little recognition," commented Atlantic Technology President and founder Peter Tribeman, "is a lot of recognition -- which is what Atlantic has seen this year from all the major industry press and publications. This has been a busy year for us, with a complete redesign of our flagship THX in-wall speaker line, our collaborative work with Epson on the Ensemble home theater system, and a strong push forward of our sales and marketing programs.

Atlantic Technology In-Wall LCR Combines THX Level Performance with Simple Horizontal Installation in Standard Wall Cavities

Atlantic Technology previewed its forthcoming IWTS-155 LCR in-wall loudspeaker to custom installation professionals at the 2008 CEDIA Expo here today. Designed to deliver THX level performance, but still mount either vertically or horizontally in a standard 2x4 wall cavity, the speaker is ideal for use as a high quality L/R speaker, or as the center channel speaker in a complete In-Wall THX system.

"The IWTS-155 LCR will be THX Certified when used with its optional back box," comments Atlantic Technology Marketing Director Steve Feinstein. "This will give installers THX performance in a speaker that is compact enough to be installed horizontally between standard 16 inch-on-center stud construction - something many THX certified speakers are too large to do. The 155 LCR can be used for all three front speakers, delivering perfectly-balanced sound and THX-level performance. Additionally, the 155 will be ideally suited as a center channel match with Atlantic’s THX-certified IWCB-727 and IWTS-30 LCR in-wall speakers when a horizontal center channel speaker is desired."

Atlantic Technology Updates Flagship Speaker System and Lowers Price

LAS VEGAS (1/8/07) – Atlantic Technology has introduced its new System 8200e speaker line, an improved version of the company's acclaimed THX Ultra2 certified System 8200. The new flagship system offers the same high-end performance as its predecessor at a significantly lower price point, thanks to simplified cosmetics and configuration options.

"The original System 8200 received universal acclaim from dealers, consumers, and reviewers, and we still haven't found much room for improvement in its performance," comments Atlantic Technology President Peter Tribeman. "However, we did see an opportunity to update its appearance, and make it a better fit for most people's homes. Of course, while we were at it, our engineers did find a way to make sound even better, and we've managed to cut the prices at the same time."
