Atlantic Technology Debuts Downward Firing Subwoofer

Posted February 29, 2012 01:54 AM by Webmaster

Blu-ray MoviesAtlantic Technology has introduced a new down-firing version of one of its most popular subwoofers to provide greater placement flexibility. By placing the woofer and bass vent on the bottom of the speaker cabinet, the new SB-900DF can be squeezed into tight spots behind furniture with no concern of its output being muffled by the back of furniture as might be the case with the original SB-900 front-firing subwoofer.

While the new Atlantic Technology SB-900DF is relatively small, its deep, low distortion bass is fast and muscular. The 8-inch long-excursion woofer has an oversized surround and high-energy magnet. When combined with the tuned bass port and powerful 125-watt power amplifier, the system delivers high output levels and exceptional low-frequency extension down to 32 Hz, -3 dB, which is the lowest fundamental note in the musical spectrum. Proprietary distortion-detection circuitry prevents the system from emitting objectionably-distorted sound no mater how hard it is pushed.

The SB-900DF also has a range of tuning controls that improve the system's interaction with the room. These controls include an adjustable crossover that allows fine-tuning of the level and crossover frequency, and a phase switch. A built-in crossover bypass allows it to be used with external bass management systems. Auto-on sensing saves power and the need to manually turn it on and off.

The Atlantic Technology SB-900DF has a peak output of 102 dB SPL in a 2000 cubic foot room and a frequency response for 32 to 200 Hz, 3 dB. The black-finished cabinet measures 10-7/8 wide, 13-1/8 high, and 13-1/16 deep, and weighs 28 lbs. The SB-900DF and SB-900 are both currently available from Atlantic Technology dealers with a suggested retail price of $349.

Is this some kind of joke? Seriously. A "powerful 125-watt power amplifier"? I could belch louder than this can fire a low note. I'm not even going to comment on what the color reminds me of.

I think you should reread the description....

That's an extremely small sub for sure. I'm guessing it's targeted more toward computer workstations and living rooms where aesthetics take center stage over performance, so it can be hidden.

I've used AT speakers for over 10 years and am still very happy with their performance. My 370 THX system is still pumping it out strong and clear every night (knock on wood). I've never much cared for even AT's big-box subs though and went with MK originally for the low end and AT for everything else. Then I upgraded to SVS and couldn't believe low frequencies could be so articulate.

That's a strange looking Blu-Ray player

I'll stick with my Yamaha YST-SW305. Though it's front firing and directional the bass it cranks out is some of the richest, deepest I've heard for a sub in it's price range at the time.

@ilikebluray : u almost made piss in my pant. I really laughed a lot.
@Marcuslaw: I'm still on the 8" woofer part. I think you're right it is a joke.
Why are getting news of a subwoofer (and a small one too)?

"the new SB-900DF can be squeezed into tight spots behind furniture with no concern of its output being muffled by the back of furniture"

Now you can rest assured the floor/carpet will always muffle the sound, regardless of where you put it.

Sponsorship...?


@a_nonymous

How about the subwoofers that are down-firing but have a "foot" below the speaker rather than the floor?
Cause I have a JVC for a stereo-setup that has that kind of build.
I imagine because it's aimed at a hard surface it doesn't get muffled but even "louder"?

Low frequencies are non-directionnal and will disperse in the room no matter where the driver is fired at, if there is enough space for the sound to escape.

A single 8 inches sub is indeed punny by today standards! I run two 15 inches myself.

It's cute, but it's a woofer, not a subwoofer. My center channel speaker has two 8.9" woofers in it and my main speakers go lower than this. I guess it's fine for the money, but it's not going to put out huge amounts of bass and pushed hard it will distort a lot. That said, for a system that doesn't have much bass capability, if you put one of these inline with each of the other speakers the combined effect could be impressive.
