The 4400sr seems too heavy/bulky for use as a ceiling speaker ...but I'm sure I will find a way once I move to an Atmos setup.



I just bought a Marantz AV8801 last month so will probably be a couple of years before I seriously look into upgrading to an Atmos setup. I haven't been following too closely, but was under the impression that the height and width channels would be used in addition to the atmos ceiling channels?
I also bought the 8801 3 months ago so will at least keep it for another 2-3 years till i upgrade.

If you are going to run Atmos then you can't use your wide and height speakers the same time, it's either Atmos or that.

If i am not mistaken the most speakers you could do with Atmos are the traditional 7.1 setup + 4 Atmos speakers which are either ceiling or pointed towards the ceiling. this is called 7.1.4

Hope that helps.

Speaking of Atmos, looks like the Atlantic Technology height modules were greeted favorably at CEDIA:

Unfortunately, I missed Atlantic Technology’s demo at the Expo, but I got to hear the company’s new 44-DA speaker module in a demo conducted by chipmaker Analog Devices. The $449/pair 44-DA fits atop Atlantic’s 4400 LR speakers so closely that you don’t even notice that there’s a separate module sitting on top. Each one has a 5.25" woofer and a 1" tweeter in a concentric array. Maybe it’s because Analog Devices’ demo was in a small, quite hotel room instead of in one of the prefab sound rooms on the show floor, but I thought this system delivered perhaps the most precise imaging of the object-based sound effects, such as the spears whizzing toward you in the opening of Star Trek Into Darkness.

I have the 4400 center, L,R, and surrounds coming soon, pretty much sight unseen and unheard by me. The few posts I've read in this thread speak highly of AT. Looking forward to hooking them up and putting them through their paces. 5 speakers for now, eventually moving to 7, maybe 9 or 11 speaker setup. I like also, that the System 4400 is the one that is Atmos ready with the add on modules being fairly inexpensive and unobtrusive.

Q: I've got a full vintage Atlantic Technology System 350 5.1, I've used it for 12 years in my family room, and also outdoors for movie night.

Is that worth anything these days? Like even $300 - ish, I did pay over $2k for it in 2000 from OneCall, authorized dealer back then..

I've got blown mid-range drivers in the mains, and am contemplating replacing them and selling them as a 5.1 set or just the center and surrounds if fixing the mains mid-range drivers are over $100 total.
Here is thread that shows what I've done so far on fixing them,
Mid-range gone: blown driver or crossover board?

Anybody have good contact to Atlantic Tech service rep please PM me their info, I'd appreciate it.

You can see the family room set-up below


and usage outdoors also, the mains and center mounted on my garage side:

I have been involved with Atantic Tech for well over 20 years both as a user and a dealer and I totally agree Pete is the best. Our company was one of the first authorized online dealers. A quick story from 2005, we sold a Yale Professor the system 8200 this was when they shifted the line over and the 8200 was the new flagship. I might be slightly off on the year but it was around this time. The Yale professor bought his whole system including PJ and screen and sunfire amp/pre amp. He called me one day and he said he had completely blown out his Atlantic tech 8200 front speakers and smoke was coming out of the voice coils. I asked him what he was doing and how loud he had the volume up. He was using the sunfire cinema grand amp at 400 watts per channel. I personally own this very system. I asked him what movie he was playing. He said he had Amadeus playing and one part not sure the scene he put the volume on full and blew the front's out. I called Atlantic and told them this and in about 2 hours Pete Tribeman called me and asked me a bunch of questions about this guy. He said in all of his years as a speaker designer and mfg he never had speakers this good get blown. I told him what happened and he said it's really the guys own fault. I agreed and I said I am not requesting a replacement but how much to fix. You know what he did, he said he would replace at no charge and shipped the guy new speakers. He picked up the old ones free also. He did not need to do that. This struck me as great customer service and I have always had a loyalty to selling and using Atlantic. The bottom line with AT is you can't go wrong with the quality and they back their products. They are a great company.

I own the 8200's also and I would never turn it up that loud as my ears would fall off first before the speakers ever blew.

I have a System 250 Speaker System and one of my front speakers is dead. It's a Model 251 LR.

I ruled out my receiver by swapping the channels. I can hear sound out of the bad speaker but it's at about 5% of the volume coming out of the good speaker.

On the first page of the PDF, it's the speaker on each side of the sub.

http://www.atlantictechnology.com/fi...250_manual.pdf

Does anyone have any suggestions?

thanks

Contact Atlantic Technology and I am sure they will guide you with advice and possibly parts!

They have very good customer service even on the older stuff.

Good luck!

i have 3 642e subs running in my 3400ft room, everything calibrated with XT32 (dynamic volume off) all speakers set to small 80hz.

i tend to listen to movies around -6 and nearly in every single movie a sub or two bottom out once or twice, once i run the 3 subs together in the speaker level they are 73-75db all together which is ideal and not even running hot. and that is after i increased them a few db's, as Audyssey set them really low around 70-71db. and they were barely noticable like nearly off which shouldn't be the case for 3 subs.

any solutions? i really feel the subs are the weak link in my system as i am not even listening at reference level and my room is fully treated with panels and bass traps.

speakers are 8200e

According to the specs found here http://www.atlantictechnology.com/pr...sb-thx-select/ those subs are 350 watts that only go down to 25 hz. That's your problem. Not enough subwoofer for your space. That also explains why they on occasion bottom out.

I use a single Seaton Submersive in a larger space and its enough for me. There are other good subs around as well but after using a Velodyne HGS 15 for several years, a SVS Ultra 15 for a few years, the Submersive seems to me to be most accurate. Although there are those who will load their space with 3 or 4 subs, one seemed to be enough for me.

thanks for your reply, then i guess i would have to live with them for at least a year then my goal is to upgrade to a full seaton setup (catalysts and submersives)

That should be a killer system. From what I've heard, the catalysts are pretty good.
