Atlantic Technology has announced that it is shipping the FS Series wireless powered subwoofers, two new slim, compact subwoofers that deliver bass to any TV, soundbar or audio system.
By using 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.
The FS Series of subwoofers receive low-latency long-range SKAA wireless audio signals from a growing line of Atlantic Technology SKAA wireless multi-room products such as the 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 bass in a slim design. The subs also feature RCA line inputs and outputs for maximum value and versatility.
“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,” says 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, 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, four-layer aluminum voice coil.
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 7in 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 placement versatility and can be positioned vertically behind a couch, horizontally, hidden under furniture, or can be wall mounted.
To match the subwoofer to any system, the FS Series includes versatile optimisation controls. The adjustable 50Hz to 300Hz, 12dB per octave low-pass crossover delivers blending with satellite speakers or a soundbar while making the woofer less localisable. 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 36ms. 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 users 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 analogue and digital outputs plus USB and Lightning connectors.
Both models are affordably priced with a $399 (£326) MSRP for the 6.5in woofer 100W amplified FS-S65 and $549 (£449) MSRP for the 8in 150W FS-S8.
