WHO amongst us does not crave deeper and cleaner bass for a price that won’t clean out our bank account? Especially home theatre and rock music enthusiasts. Well, here comes the new ATC C1, in its second iteration, to get you those amazing lows.
The compact C1 Sub Mk2, finished in a real wood veneer, features a hand-built 12-inch proprietary bass driver and a fully discrete ATC 200W MOSFET power amplifier section.
Says ATC: “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 200W 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 continuously variable low-pass and all-pass filters and polarity switch, speaker level L/R inputs, independent L/R RCA line inputs and a summed line output RCA connector to allow the daisy-chaining of multiple subwoofers. The sub goes down to 25Hz, measures 450 x 360 x 400mm (h/w/d) and weighs a substantial 26.2kg.
The C1 Sub Mk2 is available in four finishes – cherry, black ash, satin black and satin white, matching ATC’s Entry Series speakers, centre speakers and HTS Series on-wall products.
Retailing at ATC £1,650, the C1 Sub Mk2 comes with a six-year warranty.
