NORWOOD, MA (5/5/09) -- 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 has also introduced its new line of SB powered subwoofers. The line includes a new, more powerful 350 watt version of the popular 642e SB, as well as three all-new models, the 325 watt 444 SB, the 220 watt 334 SB, and the 180 watt 224 SB. Each of the models features a long-throw composite cone woofer in a sealed acoustic suspension enclosure, as well as the company's proprietary CFT™ (Clear Filter Technology) for crisp, precise bass response. The series is designed to provide high-quality deep bass output levels to suit a wide range of room sizes and listening preferences.
All of the new Atlantic Technology speaker systems and subwoofers will be available in late May. Suggested retail pricing for complete 5.1-channel systems ranges from $1,680 to $3,800, depending on series, subwoofer, and configuration. Detailed information, specifications, and pricing are available in the individual press releases: System 1400, System 2400, System 4400, SB Subwoofers.
