Subwoofer Systems
Congratulations on choosing an Atlantic Technology Powered Subwoofer. This manual
covers the Atlantic Technology Models 222, 262 and 352 THX® Powered
Subwoofer Systems. Our subwoofers feature a proprietary amplifier and special high
excursion woofers designed to deliver very high output levels on a continuous basis.
The sealed acoustic suspension cabinet configuration provides extended, deep bass in a
compact, room-friendly design. This new generation of subwoofers utilizes a new
advanced circuit design to control distortion and woofer over-excursion. The overload
circuitry incorporates optical devices that isolate this circuit from the rest of the
amplifier for optimum sound quality.
Atlantic Technology Powered Subwoofers integrate easily with virtually all other brands
of loudspeakers on the market. All inputs and outputs, both line level and high
(speaker) level, are designed for optimum signal integrity. The premium quality gold
plated connectors and all controls are clearly labeled and versatile in operation. The
amplifiers have more than ample power and headroom to supply a high fidelity
foundation to any audio or home theater system.
Lucasfilm Home THX
George Lucas and Lucasfilm, (creators of the Star Wars saga), originated and perfected
Home THX, a strict set of standards and guidelines for home theaters, so that they may
emulate the original dubbing stage. When properly followed, these guidelines address
and correct the problems of overly bright or harsh
soundtracks, unintelligible dialog, limited bass response,
and poor localization of sounds.
It is important to realize that THX is not a recording
process or film sound format. All motion pictures will be
reproduced as they were heard in the film studio dubbing
stage through the Home THX System, no matter what delivery system is used. The 352
PBM THX will easily handle the full dynamic range and low frequency bandwidth of
any existing or newly emerging surround sound technology (such as Dolby AC-3). The
352 PBM THX addresses the interface requirements and dynamic capabilities of the real
world. It’s combination of advanced amplification and high-excursion woofer delivers
prodigious amounts of low frequency energy at high sound pressure levels with very
little distortion.

TECHNOLOGY
Features
Your Atlantic Technology Powered Subwoofer was engineered using the latest
technology and finest components available.
●
High excursion drivers in a sealed acoustic suspension cabinet
●
Continuous power output conservatively rated at 125, 150 and 200 watts
(Model 222, 262, and 352, respectively) Coupled with our highly efficient drivers,
this is plenty of power for even the most dynamic music and effects you are likely
to encounter.
●
Discrete very high current output devices rated at 30 amps each
The 352 PBM THX doubles up output devices for even higher current capability.
●
Working frequency range from 20Hz to low pass filter setting up to 125Hz
●
Continuously adjustable low-pass filter from 60Hz to 125Hz
The slope of the low-pass filter is -24 dB/octave. This allows for flexible integration
with most any brand or type of speaker on the market.
●
Two line input and two passive line level outputs with gold RCA connectors
The model 352PBM THX uses one line input as the THX input to comply with
THX requirements.
●
All speaker inputs and outputs are gold 5-way binding posts
This is the ideal way to make connections without compromising signal integrity.
All models employ a 12dB/octave subsonic filter for frequencies below 20Hz.
Frequencies below 20Hz are inaudible and consume vast amounts of amplifier
power. Filtering them out with a gradual slope maintains amplifier headroom
while maintaining fidelity.
●
Phase inverter toggle switch (0/180°)
Allows matching with many systems whose output may be inverse phased.
●
Woofer output level control
Matches a wide range of input levels.
●
Optical anti-clipping circuitry
This is the lowest distortion type of circuit available. It has ideal linearity, works in
real time and uses imperceptible time constant triggers (delays) so that its effect
during operation, if needed, is virtually instaneous and inaudible.
●
75°C thermal protection
Temperature at external surface of heatsink never goes above 70°C. The output
devices are rated to operate safely at much higher temperatures.
●
Auto power on/off function
The 7-10 minute turn-off delay features a front panel mounted dual-color LED
power indicator for power on and standby indication.

Connection
Atlantic Technology Powered Subwoofers are simple to hook up, offering several
connection methods for maximum flexibility. Study the system diagrams starting on
page 8. 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
For best performance, we suggest using the low-level (RCA style jacks) subwoofer line
out or preamp outputs if your receiver/amplifier has them. Simply connect your
subwoofer with high quality shielded cables as shown in the diagrams.
High-Level Connection
Alternately, you may use the high-level (speaker) inputs. Make sure to match the type
and gauge speaker wire used to connect your main speakers.
We recommend that you connect your subwoofer using high quality wire of 16 gauge
or larger for lengths up to 25 feet. There are many manufacturers who specialize in
speaker wire and interconnects suitable for your new system. We recommend that you
consult your local audio/video specialist for more specific information.
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.
Figure 3:
Speaker Wiring
Terminals
You can connect your subwoofer by using spade lugs or “banana” connectors, or by
removing 1/2" of insulation from each wire end, twisting the strands of wire together,
placing the wire through one of the post holes and screwing down the nut tightly. Be
certain that no stray wire strands are touching across
the two terminals as this might damage your amplifier
when you turn it on.
It is important to observe polarity while making speaker
connections: red (+) terminals on the amplifier to red
(+) on the speaker, black (-) on the amplifier to black (-)
on the speaker. Look carefully at the wires you are using
and note that one of the wires in each pair is marked by
either a different color, printing, ridges, or a thread intertwined with the wire strands.
By convention, the marked wire is connected to the red (+) terminal.

Power Connection
Connect the power cord to an AC outlet only after making all other connections to the
subwoofer. This will avoid any chance of accidentally activating the subwoofer while
wiring. The AC cord should be plugged into its own wall outlet or into a quality power
strip. Avoid using a switched outlet on the rear panel of another component. The
subwoofer can draw more current than these outlets can provide and performance will
suffer. Once the subwoofer is hooked up and the power switch is turned on, leave it on.
The automatic on/off circuitry will only activate the subwoofer in the presence of an
audio signal from your audio/video system. After 7-10 minutes with no signal detected
from the rest of the system, the amplifier will shut itself off and go into standby mode.
When an audio signal is present, the power LED will glow green. Power consumption in
the standby mode is negligible.

Voltage Selection
Figure 4:

AC socket
Insert

tip here
The Atlantic Technology series of subwoofers allows operation with either 120 or 240
volts AC 50-60 Hz. Please make sure that the voltage selector switch shows the correct
voltage for your area before plugging the unit in. The
voltage can be easily changed by moving the switch to
the correct voltage and installing the proper fuse and
power cord. To change the fuse, remove the power
cord, insert a screwdriver tip into the notch in the
side of the fuseholder, and pry it out. Replace with
the correct value fuse and push back into place. The
voltage settings and fuse values are marked adjacent to
the voltage selector.
Placement
Moving the subwoofer towards the corner increases bass level, but may emphasize one
frequency predominantly (Figure 5). Moving it away from the wall will reduce the bass
output, but will yield flatter response. You can adjust the level control accordingly to
compensate for room placement.
Home THX Subwoofer Applications: The 352 PBM THX
Two 352 PBM THX subwoofers are required for proper THX operation. A single, larger
subwoofer could have been used effectively, but Atlantic Technology opted for dual subs
from both a performance standpoint, (smoother bass, less room interactions) and
aesthetic standpoint, with smaller cabinets being easier to place in the room.
Important Note: The variable input level control and the low pass crossover control have
no effect when the THX input is used. The correct input level and crossover frequency
have been incorporated into all THX certified processors and receivers. The Atlantic Technology
352 PBM THX Powered Subwoofer meets or exceeds all THX performance specifications.
When two subwoofers are used, whether for Home THX operation, regular Dolby Pro
Logic, or Dolby AC-3, they should be placed asymmetrically; that is, in slightly different
positions on each side of the television (Figure 6). This will help to attenuate room
resonances that are common to symmetrically positioned subwoofers.

Operation
First, with your receiver/amplifier’s power off, set the subwoofer’s volume by turning
the variable input level control on the front of the unit to the 8:00 o’clock position,
and the low pass control on the back panel set to 80. Next, turn on your system and
play some music. Adjust the input level and low pass filter until the bass seems
smoothly integrated between the subwoofer(s) and the main speakers without being
overpowering.
The Phase Invert Mode
A subwoofer operating out of phase with the rest of the system will not provide
optimum low frequency performance. Also, the correct subwoofer phase can enhance
room acoustics. Since there is so much variation in the industry regarding phase, and
no standards have been established, a switch that will reverse the phase of the
subwoofer is provided on the subwoofer amplifier’s rear panel. Listen to a monoraul
musical source with strong bass content. (For example, you can use the mono switch on
an FM tuner or preamp, or use a Y-connector on the outputs of one of your source
components to get a mono signal.) Experiment with the position of the phase switch to
get the most extended bass. It should be obvious which is the correct setting.
A Word About Center Channel Modes
Many surround processors and surround 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. The
“wide” mode will extend the bass response of the center channel speaker and this,
combined with the bass output of the subwoofer, will result in an unnatural heaviness
or boominess to the bass output of the system. The center channel speaker will also
sound more dynamic and the intelligibility of the system will generally be improved
when operated in the “normal” mode.
