Atlantic Technology to License H-Pas Bass Technology to SpeakerCraft

Atlantic Technology has successfully patented the company's H-PAS technology and is now ready to start licensing the technology to other brands. SpeakerCraft has taken the opportunity to do so which will allow the company to make several new kinds of speakers.

Through their application of H-PAS technology, SpeakerCraft will reportedly be able to provide their customers with loudspeakers that will deliver deeper and smoother bass in much smaller cabinets than was previously possible.

The agreement will result in the development of several new SpeakerCraft products expected to come to market starting later this year and beyond.

H-PAS, or Hybrid Pressure Acceleration System, is a unique enclosure configuration that combines elements of several different speaker architectures--acoustic suspension, bass reflex, inverse horn, and transmission line--to produce reportedly exceptional bass response and low distortion while utilizing cabinets that are considerably more compact than those of speakers with similar performance.

The H-PAS configuration was originally developed by Philip Clements of Solus/Clements. In 2009, Atlantic Technology assembled a team of audio engineers and computer scientists to create, in collaboration with Clements, a proprietary algorithm that could be used to apply H-PAS to a wide range of enclosure shapes and sizes. In January 2012 the United States Patent and Trademark office issued the first patent on H-PAS enclosure architectures; Atlantic Technology expects to obtain additional patents on the technology in the coming year.
