Hello, My first post in the audio section. Hopefully I am posting in the right section. I just bought Atlantic Technology 2400LR for only $169, I thought that was an amazing deal. Just received the shipment and I must say the built quality is amazing. Hookup was pretty simple with my old Denon AVR2700 receiver. Put on my favorite CD and sound is pretty good but I was expecting to be blown away which did not happen. The sound seems very thin and not fully filled. I don't have a Sub yet, could that be a reason for the average sound? Will adding a sub will completely change the way they sound? or is it really my amp that needs to be upgraded? I really like the deal and don't want to return these speakers. I need some expert opinions.

Thanks

They were made to work with a subwoofer - once you get a sub, the sound
will be more full and balanced - the speakers are good.

No subwoofer I've heard has been able to produce the bass I've experienced in the Corps!

Thanks guys, Any recommendation for the sub? I have a fairly small room and the only place I can put the sub is behind the TV. these speakers will be also close to the TV. I was looking at
Mirage S8

or how about a wireless Sub woofer from Polk over at sellout.woot

I would skip the Polk sub.
The Mirage will fill in the bass, to balance the bookshelf - the Energy will have more authority
and go deeper > if you can work it out.

You bought nice speakers, so getting a crummy sub would be a bad idea. The Energy S10.3 is regarded quite highly, so it should compliment your AT speakers.

BTW; where did you get those 2400's for $169? That's like half price.

If you take yourself too seriously expect me to do the exact opposite

You can get the Atlantic Technology 2400LR for $169 through Accoustic Sound Design using code "ATLR" - http://www.acousticsounddesign.com/core/view_BigProduct.cfm?pid=1965&sc=32

Here are their specials: http://slickdeals.net/permadeal/75222/acoustic-sound-design-atlantic-technology-system-2200-home-5.0-speaker-system-329-2400-lr-speakers-pair-169-system-2200c-center-speaker-89-2200-lr-bookshelf-speakers-pair.

They are back on sale! Thinking about getting the 2400LR and pairing it with my Energy S10.3. I'm looking for 2.0 speakers that don't really need a sub though.
