8600E Flagship System

flagshipsystem.png

New ultra-high-performance 8600e series flagship speaker system offers an unbeatable combination of smooth, accurate sound, sophisticated style and value.

The center channel in a surround sound system is a critical component to deliver dialogue, music, and special effects with such accuracy you will hear every nuance no matter what the source. Our new 8600eC center channel speaker employs a set of seven drivers, crossover, bi-wire capability and acoustic optimization controls matched to our 8600eLR floor-standing LR speakers, so sounds move seamlessly across the front channels.

The 8600eC can be placed above, below or behind an acoustically transparent projection screen. It incorporates the trademark Atlantic pivoting base which tilts the 8600eC up or down so its sound is optimized to the listener’s seating position.  Built-in compensation controls* further optimize the system for any placement and room acoustics for the ultimate in flexibility and performance for today’s high-end installations.

With the design of the 8600e series, Atlantic Technology set new standards for performance. By implementing new driver technology in an all-new configuration, we have developed a no-compromise surround sound speaker system able to deliver superb performance in a wide variety of acoustic settings. 

This all-new speaker design of the 8600eC features internally braced .75-inch thick non-resonant MDF cabinets housing seven new state-of-the art Atlantic Technology drivers configured in a D’Appolito/M-T-M array; four 6.5-inch fiberglass woofers, two 5.25-inch fiberglass mid-drivers, and an advanced 1-inch aluminum/magnesium dome tweeter with a powerful neodymium magnet structure.  The midrange and tweeter drivers are internally isolated within their own airtight sub-enclosure.  

Critical to a center channel’s performance is dialog intelligibility.  Loudspeaker brands employing a D’Appolito/M-T-M array in a system will often arrange the center channel M-T-M speakers in a symmetrical or horizontal arrangement rather than matching the correct vertical D’Appolito/M-T-M array of the L/R speakers.  Unfortunately, the symmetrical arrangement creates undesirable audible comb-filtering effects which cause the dialog intelligibility to change across listener seating positions.  The 8600eC D’Appolito/M-T-M array retains the same critical vertical alignment as the 8600eLR L/R channels so that listeners in all positions get the clearest, best un-compromised sound quality.

Like the 8600e LR’s, the cross-over is a 4th order Butterworth asymmetrical time-aligned Linkwitz-Riley design with bi-wire inputs to maximize efficient power transfer and maintain optimum amplifier damping factor for the best bass control.  24K gold-plated terminals accept and tightly secure very large gauge speaker cable and also accept banana plugs. 24K gold-plated terminal jumper links are used when bi-wiring is not employed. A high-sensitivity spec of 93 dB with power handling of up to 300-watts makes the 8600eC perfect for very high-performance, large-room home theater systems.

With the design of the 8600eLR, we decided to set new standards and create a next-level of speaker system for Atlantic Technology. By implementing new driver technology in an all-new configuration, we have developed a no-compromise speaker system, able to deliver its superb performance in a wide variety of acoustic settings.

Overview

The 8600eLR’s is Atlantic Technology’s ultra-high performance speaker system with an unbeatable combination of smooth, accurate sound, sophisticated style, and unmatched value in a flagship system. 

Whether you are critically listening to two-channel music, or enjoying surround-sound movies, with the 8600eLR’s you’ll appreciate the speaker’s ability to deliver the explosive dynamics of the latest Hollywood blockbuster or the subtle detail in a classic recording.

This all-new speaker design features internally braced non-resonant MDF cabinets housing seven new state-of-the art Atlantic Technology drivers configured in a D’Appolito/M-T-M array; four 8-inch fiberglass woofers, two 5.25-inch fiberglass mid-drivers, and an advanced 1-inch aluminum/magnesium dome tweeter with a powerful neodymium magnet structure.  The midrange and tweeter drivers are internally isolated within their own airtight sub-enclosure.  

The cross-over is a 4th order Butterworth asymmetrical time-aligned Linkwitz-Riley design with bi-wire inputs.  A high-sensitivity spec of 91 dB with power handling of up to 300 watts per speaker makes the 8600’s perfect for very high-performance 2-channel and home theater systems

SBT500/1000

Ultra-High Power, 1,000-Watt, Dual 12-Inch and 500-Watt Dual 10-Inch Subwoofers

The SBT Series extend Atlantic’s legacy for designing subwoofers, delivering power and impact without sacrificing detail and taking articulation to a new level.  With dual woofers, higher-power and new digital circuit designs, the SBT series are engineered with the latest technology and finest components available to bring sonic performance to new levels of depth, power and clarity.

Our subs never fall into the “one-note bass boom” trap common in conventional subs.  Instead of conventional “compressor-limiter” distortion-reduction, Atlantic employs its special 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 frequencies 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.

And with the SBT Series Subwoofers, Atlantic has improved CFT by designing a sophisticated new DSP circuit for the crossover, signal contouring and limiting to prevent over-excursion of the drivers and deliver a clear articulate performance.

Atlantic Powered Subwoofers 

All Atlantic powered subwoofers share their essential design approach and philosophy: Heavy-duty woofers in optimally sized enclosures, powered by high-current amplifiers. They all use the sealed “acoustic suspension” bass alignment method which delivers superior transient response for greater clarity and detail, and a more gradual low-frequency rolloff that requires less power-robbing equalization from the on-board amplifier.

We’ve also developed an exclusive feature called Clear Filter Technology (CFT™) that actually reduces the deleterious effects the enclosure itself can have on the sound. All enclosures have dimensionally-dependent resonances. Those resonances can impart a negative ‘coloration” to the sound. In subwoofers, this negative effect usually occurs in the upper bass range and can make upper bass/lower midrange sounds like male voices or the upper ranges of bass guitar sound unnaturally heavy or ‘thumpy.’ This is true even if your subwoofer is “crossed over” in what you think is the low bass region–lower than 80 Hz or so–because crossovers are not absolute. So even if your subwoofer is crossed over at 80 Hz, it is still producing significant output up to about 180-200 Hz. Atlantic’s Clear Filter introduces a reciprocal correction in the exact frequency region where these problems occur, resulting in a markedly cleaner, more detailed sound. Every one of our subwoofers has its own Clear Filter, optimized specifically for that particular model.

Our subs utilize an adjustable (40Hz to 140Hz) 18dB per octave Low Pass crossover that allows much better bass integration with the satellite speakers while making the woofer less localizable. Meanwhile, the Phase Invert switch (Normal/Invert) allows precise acoustic matching with satellite speaker systems whose output relative to the subwoofer may be phase reversed. This switch also allows you to compensate for unusual room acoustics that occur when the woofer is physically separated from the main speakers by a significant distance.

Other features are convenient front panel mounted Level Control and automatic standby operation with a multi-color LED status indicator. The automatic standby feature offers signal sensing turn-on with a 7-10 minute turn-off delay. There’s a multi-color LED status indicator that lets you know when the unit is on or in standby. Automatic Standby can be defeated by placing the rear mounted switch in the ON position. Finally, they are all designed and built to meet all current domestic and European safety requirements, making it one of the most sophisticated subwoofers to be produced anywhere.
