Atlantic Technology announced this week that two of the new subwoofers we saw at this past year's CEDIA Expo in San Diego are now shipping to dealers. Dubbed the SBT-500 and SBT-1000, the new subs carry suggested retail pricing of $1,799 and $2,499, respectively, and differ primarily in their size dual ten-inch or dual twelve-inch drivers) and their amplification (the output is reflected in their model numbers).
More information from Atlantic Technology:
Atlantic Technology is now shipping its much anticipated new flagship SBT Series subwoofers previewed at CEDIA 2018, expanding their extensive range of in-room subwoofers to suit higher-performance large room two-channel or home-theater systems. Two models are available, the 500-watt powered dual 10-inch SBT-500 and 1,000-watt dual 12-inch powered SBT-1000. With MSRP at $1,799 and $2,499 respectively, both are shipping to dealers now. Available finishes include black satin or high-gloss.
The SBT Series extend Atlantic's legacy for designing great sounding subwoofers for music and home-theater, delivering power and impact with deep bass articulation that doesn't sacrifice sound-track nuances or musical detail. Each utilizes the latest in technology and finest components available. Featured are dual long-throw composite cone drivers, each with a vented motor structure and high-temperature, 2-inch, 4-layer voice coil, and driven by patented Audera Class LH high-efficiency linear hybrid amplifiers. The amps' high-current capabilities contribute to exceptional driver control and headroom while ensuring cool and reliable operation. A continuous adjustable 40 Hz to 140 Hz, 24dB per octave low pass crossover assures finely-tuned blending with other speakers ranging from high-performance towers to satellites.
"Atlantic Technology's subwoofers never fall into the 'one-note bass boom' trap common in conventional subs," says Paul Fredrickson, Business Development Director at Muto Communications, Atlantic Technology's PR firm. "Instead of typical 'compressor-limiter' distortion-reduction, Atlantic employs its Clear Filter Technology (or CFT) circuitry. This greatly enhances articulation and detail of instrumentation, vocals and special effects in upper bass and lower mid-range by reducing resonance colorations inherent to subwoofer enclosures in these octaves. That's why other subwoofers, regardless of their power ratings, can't match the sound of an Atlantic subwoofer for detail and musical accuracy.
"This is Atlantic Technology's first use of dual-drivers in their subwoofers which loudspeaker enthusiasts immediately recognize is aimed at delivering thunderous sound," furthered Fredrickson. "At the subs' unveiling at CEDIA Expo, we garnered much interest from dealers and press with many requests for review. We are delighted with the positive feedback and confident that Atlantic Technology has another winner on their hands. This is extremely satisfying given the company is entering its forth decade, having long been recognized as one of the first home theater loudspeaker brands, and still raising the bar for performance today."
