Every once in a great while, a truly
groundbreaking product comes along that
accomplishes the game for home theater sound systems.
AT-1 H-PAS™ tower speaker is such a product.
The AT-1’s patent-pending H-PAS bass system
(Hybrid Pressure Acceleration System) combines
elements of several speaker technologies—bass
reflex, acoustic suspension, inverse horn, and
transmission line—in a unique configuration
to deliver powerful low frequency response
that absolutely breaks what was previously
thought to be the “Iron Law” of loudspeaker
acoustics: the notion that you couldn’t have deep
bass extension, good system sensitivity, and
reasonable enclosure size all in one design.
“Pick any two at the expense of the third,”
went the old cliché.
H-PAS changes all that.
- Revolutionary H-PAS technology delivers full, lively bass.
- Equipped with Atlantic Technology's Low Resonance Tweeter for wide dispersion.
- Stand made with Cross-Design Free Flow in mind with solid bracing to assure a vibration free cabinet.
- Dual 5 way binding posts for hookup flexibility. Looking at you, Audiophiles!
- Hand-rubbed black gloss finish with a metallic shine.
H-PAS does not require the use of special drivers, any
kind of on-board electronics or outboard equalization. It
is a purely passive system, completely compatible with all
stereo amplifiers and AV receivers.
The Atlantic Technology AT-1 utilizes two 5¼-inch drivers in
an enclosure of approximately 1.6 cubic feet to produce bass
that extends to 29 Hz (-3dB) at Sound Pressure Levels that
exceed 106dB. Bass harmonic distortion is under 3 percent.
Comparable performance in a conventionally designed
loudspeaker system would require bass drivers of at least
triple the size in an enclosure at least twice as large. The AT-1
also uses an exceptionally advanced 11⁄8-inch Low-Resonance
Tweeter (LRT™) that affords a lower crossover frequency (2000
Hz) than is normal in a two-way system.
The result is exceptionally wide dispersion through the midrange
without the upper-midrange “beaming” normally exhibited by
woofers in a two-way speaker. The tweeter’s oversized 4 mm
textile surround—rarely, if ever, found in a tweeter—allows for long
excursion, and very high power handling. As innovative as the
H-PAS design is in the bass region, the AT-1’s tweeter is equally
impressive in the higher ranges. This is a total loudspeaker
system of amazing capability and accuracy.
