Atlantic Technology Ships its AT-2 H-PAS Bookshelf Speakers


Atlantic-Technology-AT-2-bookshelf-speakers.jpgAtlantic Technology is now shipping its new AT-2 compact bookshelf loudspeakers, which use the company's H-PAS bass technology. H-PAS technology allegedly produces much higher levels of deep, low distortion bass than is possible with conventional speakers of the same size. This is the same technology that is used in the company's AT-1 floorstanding speaker.

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 bass response down to 41 Hz at -3dB.

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) that is 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.

The AT-2's H-PAS design allows it to reach down farther into the bass region than a listener would ordinarily expect. Atlantic Technology designed the AT-2 to deliver excellent, virtually full-range musical performance in small to medium-size rooms.

The surprisingly heavy cabinet is heavily braced for rigidity and acoustic inertness.
Engineers used advanced cabinet accelerometer measurements, coupled with exhaustive listening evaluation, to finalize the bracing design. The cabinet dimensions are 8-3/4 inches wide by 15 5/8 inches high 12-1/4 inches deep (222 x 396 x 310mm).

The metallic speckle gloss black paint process is quite similar to that used in the automotive industry. It is a multi-layer finish, with the "sparkles" being in the middle, under 2 or 3 layers of clear-coat finish. The designers tried for a subtle effect: one that looks like regular gloss black from a distance, but has the additional character and interest of the sparkle when viewed up close.

The Atlantic Technology AT-2 loudspeakers are currently available with a suggested retail price of $1800 per pair.
