I posted this as the start of another thread. I guess I should have posted here. Any info would be great.

Hate to start a whole new thread on this, but I recently saw an Atlantic Technology Pattern model 100 in a second hand store for $69.99. Wondering if anyone knows much about these. I'm hoping I put this post in the correct forum. I think it's some sort of sub or amp or something. Can't find much online about it. Anyone know about this?

Thanks!

I am using a pair of AT 274 TSR's from the 270 THX Series as my SIDE Surround Speakers in a 7.1 Home Theater setup....been reading now about the "latest" using additional 2 speakers in Front/HIGH In combo with one's Front L/R Speakers.
I am trying to find out if it would be SAFE to Bi-Amp the afore mentioned speakers with my Surround Back Speakers and then mount them high in front L/R?

Please advise......and

Thanks, Michael:rolleyes:

Looks great. What are you powering them with and have you painted the grills to match the wall color? Nice job on the build?

Kicked off the multi-media speaker category, with a 3-channel amp in the subwoofer to power itself and the 2 satellite speakers. Three sources could plug directly into the sub via analogue RCA connectors. I think the designer went off to make similar but smaller versions for Altec.

I was curious I currently have a Atlantic Technology 450THX speakers and wanted to upgrade to 7.1 speakers, would it work well to change the front towers with the 8200E AT towers and then move my older towers as the surround speakers ?
Would using my old center with these sound strange,etc ?

Thanks Dan

I upgraded to the 8200e speakers from 350 THX speakers. Not sure how close the 350 and 450 series are, but I think the 8200e's sound too different from the 350's to use together. Using the older ones for surround might be fine, but having a 450 for the center channel mixed with 8200e's for L/R would probably would not work ...would hear too much of a difference when panning.

Not strange, just inconsistent when sounds move across the soundstage. Instead, I would try to find Atlantic Technology bookshelf speakers that sounded similar to the speakers you have now and use them as rears.

I have two pair of mint condition 8200e surrounds for sale - that mate perfectly with the 8200e fronts. Great price. PM me if interested.

Is there any way to find timbre matched speakers easily ? I want to also add ceiling speakers in the future for Dolby Atmos and would prefer not to buy an entire new set of speakers.

And would the 6200 e match better since they have the same size drivers?

Hi. I have a 7.2 system, the 8200e and the THX select book shelfs for the back speakers. I love the sound of these speakers. I use the pioneer SC-09tx to power them and sound great.

There isnt many places that sell them, its to bad cause there a great speaker.

I read somewhere that they will soon have some kind of auto sub calibration, cant wait.

Just need to get 4 inceiling speakers for ATMOS

I have 6200e L/R speakers that I'm using for wide speakers to complement the 8200e L/R main speakers. Also use 4400 Surrounds for my height speakers. I even tried a pair of 1400srz as my height speakers and blended nicely with the 8200e speakers ...until I blew them out after a couple of hours. Most of the newer Atlantic Tech speakers work well together, but again, you may not get good results trying to use the older 450 speakers combined with newer ones. Drivers are constructed of different materials and speakers have an overall different sound. I still have my THX 350's and tried to use the surrounds as my height speakers. They did not mix well with the 8200e L/R speakers.

Does anyone know where I can get stands for my System 450 THX (451 LR's) Back in the day I got 2 extra 451's, now I want to use them with stands. Hard to find being that the System 450 is older.

Suggest you setup a watch on EBay, 450 pieces come up from time to time.


Also the front stands are a fairly simple design and could possibly be duplicated. That would make a great excuse to buy some nice woodworking tools, table saw, miter saw, router, sander, etc.

Then you could build your own subwoofers too.

Samsung 64F8500, Panasonic 65VT50, Oppo 95, Tivo Roamio for OTA, Dish VIP722, Marantz AV8801 preamp, Rotel Amps, Atlantic Tech 8200 speakers, Seaton Submersive HP, Calman 5, Chromapure, Accupel DVG-5000, i1Display3pro, i1pro2, eecolor colorbox.

I think in my younger years I would attempt to build. I have a full 450 set with stands. They are beautiful my craftsmanship would not compare. I want to use the 2 exrta 451s for my basement.

The system 450 is such an amazing set. I never see them on sale.

While we're on the subject, anyone have a clue as to where I could pick up the side panels for the original 8200s and stands.

I wouldn't mind making them myself but I think my wife might hurt me given the list of projects I already have waiting.

I have a 272 PBM sub that I've had for years. It's been plugged into a Meridian 561 or G68 for the last 10 years. I'm switching to a two channel setup with a McIntosh C2500 preamp and two Mc352's. Two questions:

1. Is it worth looking at newer subs?
2. If not, how the heck do I hook this sub up to a tube preamp with no sub out?
