Calif. – Sunfire plans May 4 shipments of a 1,400-watt powered subwoofer that
output from an
enclosure that’s only about 8 inches tall.
$2,000-suggested Atmos incorporates microphone and equalization that automatically
adjusts the subwoofer’s response based
on the acoustics of a room. Two Atmos subs can be connected via a single cable in a master/slave setup to further boost output.
The sub incorporates dual 6.5-inch woofers in a sealed, extruded-aluminum enclosure that’s able to withstand
backpressure up to 24.4 PSI, or almost two atmospheres
of pressure, the
maintains cone linearity over a
long-throw distance, allowing small drivers to move substantial amounts of air, the company explained.
The Atmos’ amplifier uses proprietary Tracking
to deliver the voltage
and current necessary to deliver
the sub’s high output, linearity, and frequency response of 30Hz to 100Hz. The sub also features line-level
unbalanced inputs, line-level outputs with high-pass or full range switch, a 12-volt DC input for
remote turn on.
drivers use a proprietary
surround to deliver
excursion up to 1.8 inches to deliver what the
company called “superior
linearity even at the furthest extension of the drivers.”
contended the sub outperforms many 10- to 12-inch subs.
