Atlantic Technology is now shipping its FS Series wireless powered subwoofers, two slim compact subwoofers that can add deep bass to a TV, soundbar, or audio system.
By using low-latency SKAA wireless audio technology, the 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. The FS-S65, which has a 6.5-inch woofer and 100-watts amplification is MSRP US$399 and the 8-inch 150-watt FS-S8 is US$549 MSRP.
The subs also feature RCA line inputs and outputs.
“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 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. This powerful driver design has a very stiff composite cone, says the company, that acts like a piston through its operating range.
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 and you get a high-gloss piano-black finish with the FS-S8. They 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.
To match the subwoofer to any system, the FS Series include 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.
In addition to Atlantic Technology’s SKAA systems that can transmit to these subwoofers, anything can be turned into a SKAA wireless transmitter using a SKAA transmitter. 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.
