Atlantic Technology is now shipping the new flagship SBT Series subwoofers which were previewed at CEDIA 2018. The company says that the units will 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. MSRPs are $1,799 and $2,499 respectively, and both are shipping to dealers now and are available in black satin or high-gloss finishes.
AT claims that the SBT Series deliver “…power and impact with deep bass articulation that doesn’t sacrifice sound-track nuances or musical detail,” and both promise to utilize the latest in technology and finest components available. The units include dual long-throw composite cone drivers with a vented motor structure and high-temperature, 2-inch, 4-layer voice coils, and which are driven by Audera Class LH high-efficiency linear hybrid amplifiers. The amps’ high-current capabilities contribute to driver control and headroom while ensuring cool and reliable operation. A continuous adjustable 40 Hz to 140 Hz, 24 dB per octave low pass crossover achieves blending with other speakers, including high-performance towers and 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.”
