AT 118 LFE

Modular, 15 Inch Wave EM-Pact™ Low Frequency Effects Loudspeaker

The Cine Series AT 118 LFE subwoofer has been designed with the unique Ariatechnik Wave EM-Pact™ design philosophy to bring audiophile performance to a wide range of installation applications. A modular loudspeaker that is intended for use in media rooms, home theaters or anywhere a high output loudspeaker with maximum output from a small size is required. These loudspeakers deliver class leading accuracy, sensitivity and dynamics.


Characteristic of the Wave EM-Pact™ design is an incredibly powerful and impactful sound with an exceptionally low group delay and extraordinary transient response.

The AT 118 LFE can be used in cabinets, behind screen, or as an in room loudspeaker. Utilizing our amplification's digital signal processing, the system can correct for each of these unique placement applications with relative ease. It is recommended to use at least one AT 118 LFE in cinema based systems.

Wave EM-Pact™

Ariatechnik’s Wave EM-Pact™ is a group of our core technologies and design techniques that increase bass definition and clarity. This is accomplished by using very high motor strength woofers in carefully sized cabinets and state of the art digital signal processing techniques that increase linearity, lower group delay (or time errors) and lower audible distortions.


The end result is a level of impact and clarity in music and film that is very different and better from that of traditional loudspeaker designs.
