A state-of-the-art flat-screen picture is only half of the full home theater experience. Without great sound to go with that big picture, you aren’t getting the full theater treatment. Yet even though many people want the benefits and the "wow factor" of home theater sound, they won’t give up the room for big speakers. With this dilemma in mind, Atlantic has developed a new system that, while relatively compact in size, delivers the kind of performance that has previously only been available with larger speakers. These new loudspeakers are actually a set of "acoustic building blocks" for assembling a system perfectly suited to any room and budget, but one that still maintains a consistent tonal balance. As sound travels around the room from one speaker to another, the tonal transition is seamless, maintaining perfect sonic believability. The key to the extraordinary sound of these new systems is the advanced design of their drivers. Their woofers are long-throw, high power-handling designs. The tweeter is Atlantic’s exclusive Low Resonance Tweeter (LRT ). This amazing tweeter crosses over an octave lower than conventional tweeters, delivering far wider midrange dispersion for a much more open, unboxy, and lifelike sound. This broad dispersion also maximizes speaker placement and listener seating flexibility.
