Atlantic Technology Intros FS Series Wireless Subwoofers
Atlantic Technology is now shipping the FS Series wireless powered subwoofers, two new slim elegant compact subwoofers that affordably deliver deep satisfying bass to any TV, soundbar or audio system. By using superior low-latency SKAA wireless audio technology these subs seamlessly work with Atlantic Technology’s growing line of wireless multi-room SKAA speakers, soundbars and amps as well any other brand of soundbar, TV, AV receiver or other audio source on the market. Both models are affordably priced with a $399 MSRP for the 6.5-inch woofer 100-watt amplified FS-S65 and $549 MSRP for the 8-inch 150-watt FS-S8.
The FS Series of subwoofers are slim powered subs with the versatility of wired and universal wireless connectivity. They receive advanced low-latency long-range SKAA wireless audio signals from a growing line of Atlantic Technology SKAA wireless multi-room products such as the award-winning FS-252 active bookshelf speakers, the STA-200 integrated amp and the upcoming Gatecrasher3 active multi-room soundbar. A big plus is an assortment of small, affordable adapters can turn any audio device into a SKAA transmitter so users can easily add deep bass in a stealthy slim design with the placement versatility of wireless and the legendary home-theater sound of Atlantic Technology. The subs also feature RCA line inputs and outputs for maximum value and versatility which is missing from most other wireless subwoofers.
“Virtually all wireless subwoofers are designed for soundbars and use Wi-Fi signals that only work with the same brand of sound bars or speakers and typically have limited adjustability and no provision for a wired connection to work with other products,” said Paul Fredrickson, Director of Business Development at Muto Communications, Atlantic Technology’s marketing and global PR agency of record. “Leveraging Atlantic Technology’s extensive experience producing great subwoofers, the FS Series gives everyone the ability to add a slim, compact wireless subwoofer to their TV, soundbar or home-theater system of any brand in any room, without breaking the bank or home aesthetics.”
Like all Atlantic Technology subwoofers, the FS Series are engineered using the latest technology and finest components starting with proprietary advanced drivers designed and manufactured by Atlantic Technology. The long-throw bass driver uses a massive vented magnetic motor structure and a high temperature, 4-layer aluminum voice coil. This powerful driver design has a very stiff composite cone that acts like a piston through its operating range to deliver exceptional performance and reliability.
The new thin form factor of the FS Series comes in a sturdy MDF enclosure for low distortion and deep bass in a compact cabinet that’s only 7-inches deep. The FS-S65 is finished in an all satin-black finish and a high-gloss piano-black finish with the FS-S8. This thin cabinet gives homeowners superior placement versatility and can be positioned vertically behind a couch, or horizontally even hidden under furniture such as a bed or couch. They can even be wall mounted.
The proprietary high-efficiency 100 and 150 watt amplifiers are capable of very high current delivery for exceptional driver control and the digital design ensures cool operation. Each amplifier is precision matched and equalized to its specific driver resulting in powerful, controlled bass with great articulation and authority.
To match the subwoofer to any system the FS Series includes versatile optimization controls. The adjustable 50Hz to 300Hz, 12dB per octave low-pass crossover delivers good blending with satellite speakers or a soundbar while making the woofer less localizable. The level control matches output volume to the rest of the system and a 0°/180° Phase switch is included for better acoustic matching with satellite speakers. Finally Automatic Standby features signal sensing turn-on with and a 20 minute auto turn-off for convenient use.
What really sets the FS Series apart is the SKAA wireless audio, a high-performance technology proven in pro music applications for its high-quality reliable interference-free, long range with a low latency of only 36 ms. In addition to Atlantic Technology’s SKAA systems that can transmit to these subwoofers, anything can be turned into a SKAA wireless transmitter. A variety of affordable SKAA transmitters from Atlantic Technology means you can add a SKAA wireless transmitter to any audio gear and connect these subwoofers wirelessly to upgrade an existing soundbar, TV or audio system with box, in-wall or in-ceiling speakers to transform the performance of any sound system in any room. There are adapters for analog and digital outputs plus USB and Lightning connectors. Check them out in the “Accessories” section under “Wireless Streaming” products on our website.
