While the new FS-7.1 looks quite different with its redesigned enclosure and grilles, the major improvements are under the hood. Now the surround drivers are angled forward for reportedly improved surround-sound effects in rooms even when the listening room doesn't have nearby side walls. The company also revoiced the crossover for more accurate sound and improved power-handling capabilities. It also boasts both keyhole and threaded inserts for easy mounting.
Like its predecessor, the FS-7.1 works best with a subwoofer
, and Atlantic Technology upgraded that too. The new125-watt SB-900 subwoofer has a more powerful amplifier than the 100-watt SB-800, and an improved limiter that gives it the ability to play louder. Together, the FS-7.1 and SB-900 deliver a simple and capable two-box solution for outstanding 7-channel home theater.
The FS-7.1 and SB-900 are both available now, with MSRPs of $950 and $350 respectively.
