Outlaw Audio OSB-1 soundbar

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
There is been some discussion about Outlaw's new soundbar (the OSB-1) in their company-hosted forum for several weeks, but it actually went on sale today (shipping in a week or so). This is a powered unit designed using Atlantic Technology's H-PAS algorithms, so it achieves a -3dB point of around 47Hz. I had a chance to listen to Atlantic's AT-1 (the tower speaker that was designed using H-PAS) a couple years ago, and I was quite impressed.

The soundbar is selling for $799. What may be useful for folks is the "intro" write-up that Outlaw sent out today. It helps explain a bit about the soundbar's design, particularly the practical repercussions of that low -3dB point. They posted the explanation here.

Is the Outlaw exactly the same as the new Atlantic Technology soundbar (other than branding)?
post #3 of 13
Yes. Exactly

Also it appears that the Outlaw warranty is 3 years vs 90 days on the the AT(?)

Is that correct as well?

Thanks

AT has a 5 year warranty on their speakers if you register them and bought them from an authorized dealer.

Thanks

Isdo you know if there is a reason they say 90 days on the website?

Getting the soundbar next week (from an authorized dealer) and will provide an aseessment

Use this link under register your warranty and click "View Limited Warranty". A Pop up will appear with the extended service agreement.

I know AT wouldn't give you a problem as long as you bought from one of their authorized dealers and still had the receipt. The 90 days is from unauthorized dealers, I believe by law they only have to give 30 days.

Thanks for the link

Upon opening the link I believe the extended warranty will be one year as this is a powered speaker (5 years for active speakers)

The manual says 5 years but it might be worth giving AT a call to check.

I could be wrong but I thought powered speakers and active speakers were the same thing.

They are. I think the post above meant to say "5 years for passive speakers" as that is how the warranty reads in the AT manual.

Thta is correct

My mistake as I meant one year for powered speakers and 5 years for passive speakers as per the manual

AV guy is installing the AT tomorrow

Let us know how you like it. I have one coming but probably won't get much of a chance to play with it for a few weeks.
