Designed for both music and cinema applications and replacing the Mk1 version, the new C1 Sub promises a quality of low frequency reproduction that belies its price point. The re-engineered design incorporates ATC’s customarily transparent circuits boosted by larger power supplies, the latest ATC grounded- source 200 watt Class A/B discrete MOSFET power module and improved overload protection circuitry (with front-panel indicator) for greater control at full output. The low-pass filter circuits have been comprehensively re-worked to facilitate the best possible integration with partnering speakers from ATC and other manufacturers.
Controls include a continuously variable low pass filter, a continuously variable all-pass filter and polarity switch, speaker level L/R inputs, independent L/R RCA line inputs and a summed line output RCA connector to facilitate the daisy-chaining of multiple subwoofers.
Retained by the Mk2 C1 subwoofer is the hand-built 12" ATC bass driver using a massive motor assembly and 3" ribbon voice coil. It’s precision pairing with the new C1 Sub amplifier will deliver clean and dynamic low frequencies down to 25Hz (-6dB). ATC recommends that a single C1 Sub partners ATC speaker models up to the SCM19 and HTS11, and that two subs partner SCM40 and HTS40 (although not essential in all room sizes).
The C1 Sub is available now in four real wood finishes: Cherry, Black Ash, Satin Black, Satin White to match Entry Series speakers, center speakers and HTS Series on-wall products
ATC, Acoustic Transducer Company stands alone, hand building one speaker at a time for one person, while the rest of the industry focuses on building thousands of units to supply mega-stores. ATC is still owned by founder Billy Woodman, who comes to work everyday to keep inventing new drivers, new speakers, and new technologies.
Enhanced by ATC’s traditionally robust engineering and scrupulous attention to detail, the new C1 Sub Mk2 active subwoofer is available now for $3,499 (U.S. retail price) and is backed by ATC’s standard six year warranty. Located in Las Vegas, Nevada, Lone Mountain Audio is the exclusive U.S. distributor for ATC Loudspeakers for the Hi-Fi and CI (custom integration) markets.
