Features
10 CSB Corner Subwoofer
Features
Your Atlantic Technology powered subwoofer has been engineered using
the latest technology and finest components available. It features:
■
■
Sealed enclosure design for low distortion and deep bass output
High-current amplifier
The output stage of this amplifier is a highly efficient PWM switching
type capable of very high current delivery for exceptional driver control and cool operation. It has been precision matched and equalized
to our rugged drivers. Together they deliver powerful, controlled bass
with great articulation and authority.
■
■
■
■
NOTE: If you are using a surround Processor/Receiver that includes
its own filtered subwoofer output (or a THX Certified Processor/
Receiver), we strongly recommend that you set the crossover control to the Bypass position.
An AC cord power input socket and fuse holder
Your subwoofer comes supplied with a heavy-duty detachable power
cord.
■
Voltage Selector
Easily accessible with a screwdriver tip.When changing voltage setting
also change fuse accordingly.
An adjustable (50Hz to 160Hz) @ 18dB per octave LowPass crossover
The steep upper end roll-off slope of 18dB per octave allows for much
better bass integration with the satellite speakers while making the
woofer less localizable.
Automatic standby operation, LED indicator
Automatic standby features signal sensing turn-on with 10-15 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.
A useful in room working frequency range of 25Hz to 150Hz
Many subwoofers offer specifications that look great on paper,
but in real world use deliver less than promised. Atlantic Technology subwoofers are over-designed to ensure that they will deliver
their rated performance in your room, when properly placed and
adjusted.
A Phase rotary control (0-180º)
This switch allows precise acoustic matching with satellite speaker
systems whose output may be phase reversed. This control also allows
you to compensate for unusual room acoustics that occur when the
woofer is physically separated from the main speakers. Be sure to try
the Phase control across its range when you set up your subwoofer.
Even if you’ve simply changed the built-in crossover settings it’s a
good idea to recheck the phase control since the crossover and phase
controls acoustically interact with each other. Pay particular attention
to the transition of bass from the woofer to the satellites, listening for
smooth and well defined bass throughout the range.
Sealed enclosure woofer designs are inherently low in distortion, and
deliver deep smooth bass response with a gradual and predictable
roll-off below resonance. As with all Atlantic Technology subwoofers,
we have paid close attention to providing accurate musical bass reproduction along with terrific special effects.
■
Two low level inputs, two high level inputs with highpass outputs
Either input may be used with either mono or stereo feed. This allows
great flexibility of installation method and hookup. Highpass filter
at high level output reduces bass overdriving of satellites, preserving clarity.
A long-throw composite cone driver with a vented motor structure and an oversized high temperature, 4-layer voice coil
This powerful driver has a very stiff cone that acts like a piston
throughout its operating range. Its massive magnetic motor assembly and high temperature component parts deliver exceptional performance and reliability.

Instruction Manual
Connecting Your Subwoofer
The Atlantic Technology 10 CSB is simple to hook up, offering several
connection methods for maximum flexibility. Study the system diagrams
starting on the next page. Once you have found the example which most
closely matches your system, hook up your subwoofer(s) as shown in
that diagram.
Low-Level Connection
In most cases, we suggest using the low-level (RCA jack) subwoofer line
out or preamp output if your receiver/processor has one. Simply connect
your subwoofer with high quality shielded cables as shown in the diagrams. Use the diagram that best suits your connection requirements.
Adding a Second Sub
Use the supplied y-adapter to connect the cable from the second sub. This
may be located at either end of the first sub's input cable.
High-Level Connection
Alternately, you may use the high-level (speaker) inputs. We recommend
that you connect your new Subwoofer(s) using high quality wire of 16
gauge or larger. There are many respected manufacturers in the audio
industry that specialize in speaker wire and interconnect cables suitable
for your new system. Please consult your audio/video dealer for more
specific information.
High-level Output
When using the high level inputs, connect your front left and right speakers here. This method is primarily intended for systems without a built-in
crossover or a dedicated subwoofer output. The signal that comes from
the High-level Output jacks is high-pass filtered to avoid overdriving these
speakers with deep bass. The characteristics of this filter are designed for
maximum compatibility with Atlantic speakers.
WARNING: To prevent risk of electrical shock or damage to your
equipment, always unplug all component AC cords before proceeding with speaker and component connections! The last step in
wiring your system should be plugging in the AC cords!

How Much is Enough?
Place the subwoofer in the corner of the room flush up against the walls,
as shown.You will still obtain perfectly acceptable results even if there is a
2 or 3-inch distance between the subwoofer cabinet and the walls because
of decorative baseboard wall molding or other obstruction.
If using a single sub, either front corner is usable, however, try to avoid
placement next to an open doorway, as this may cause excessive loss of
bass energy. Also, try to avoid placement against a heater. The high temperatures may trigger the sub's protective circuitry resulting in temporary loss of output. Extreme high temperatures may result in damage
to the sub.

holding the meter pointed up and in front of you, let the system cycle

level, typically 75dB, using the individual level settings in the Processor/
Receiver. As tempting as it may be to set the subwoofer and/or surround
speakers higher than 75dB, listen again after calibration and see if you
can acclimate to these levels. Try watching several different movies and
keep in mind that the goal is to have a system that sounds like you’re

A Word About Bass, Center Channel Modes
and System Set Up
20-240V
Many surround processors and receivers feature a “Wide” and “Normal”
mode for the center channel speaker. Atlantic Technology recommends
that the center channel be operated in the “Normal” mode when using
a powered subwoofer.CAUTION
The center channel speaker will sound more
dynamic and the intelligibility of the system will generally be improved
when in the
“Normal”
mode.

speakers we recommend setting such a controller to the Small position
for all the speakers in the system, with one exception.
When using the high level input connected to your receiver/amplifier's left and right speaker outputs, set the "speaker size" for these left
and right channels to "large." This will deliver full-range signals to the
subwoofer. The left and right speakers are then connected to the sub's

avoid overdriving these speakers.
Care of Your Subwoofer
The 10 CSB is constructed from Medium Density Fiberboard. MDF is a
non-resonant material ideal for speaker system enclosures. To clean the
cabinet you may use a soft cloth either dry or slightly dampened with
clean water. Be careful not to wet the cabinet or allow any water to enter
the cabinet seams. Avoid placing your speakers in direct sunlight or near
a source of heat that may, over time, damage the finish.
IMPORTANT: Save Your Boxes! If you can do so, save the carton,
packing pieces and plastic bags that came with your subwoofer.
They will be useful in case you move or have to ship your
subwoofer for any reason. In any case, save all packing materials
until you are certain that the system has suffered no damage in
shipment. If you find such damage, either visible or internal, contact your dealer immediately for the proper return procedure.

Specifications
The cabinet may be painted to
blend in even better with your
room’s décor. First, clean the cabinet, using an appropriate cleaner
such as non-ammonia Windex®
or diluted Simple Green®. Then
use a coat of primer, such as
Glidden® interior/exterior Gripper® or Rust-Oleum® Rusty
Metal Primer. Be sure to follow
the primer’s instructions.
For the finish coat, we recommend using a latex water-based paint. You
may use a brush, pad, roller, or spray paint, depending on the type of
finish effect desired. For best results apply two light coats of the final
color. Make sure the first coat is completely dry before applying the second coat.

Specifications are those in effect at the time of printing. Atlantic Technology reserves the right to change specifications or designs at any time
without notice.
IMPORTANT: Please don’t get paint on the amplifier. Also, don’t
paint the driver recess area of the cabinet or risk getting any paint
on the acoustical foam or the driver itself, as this may seriously
degrade the unit’s performance and void the warranty.
During painting, please protect these areas with paper and masking (painter’s) tape. For best results, remove while the paint is still
wet.
Subwoofer Troubleshooting Guide
Once your subwoofer is set up, you should have many years of maintenance free enjoyment from your system. However, if you should encounter a
