The Cine Series AT 12WS has been designed around the unique Ariatechnik Wave Synergy™ drive unit to bring audiophile performance to a wide range of installation applications. A modular, two-way point source loudspeaker that is intended for use in media rooms, home theaters or anywhere a high output loudspeaker with a wide coverage pattern is required. These loudspeakers deliver class leading accuracy, sensitivity and dynamics. Characteristic of the Wave Synergy™ design is a very wide 'sweet spot' with an exceptionally even response throughout the listening area, as well as an extraordinary transient response.
The AT 12.1 WS 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. The AT 12.1 WS can also be used in conjunction with one or more AT 12 W H.E. woofers to make a larger, higher output standalone full range loudspeaker. It is recommended to use at least one AT 12 W H.E. for each AT 12.1 WS for full range performance, additionally an LFE subwoofer such as the AT 118 LFE should be used for the lowest frequencies. The other advantage to the AT 12.1 WS is that it can be used either vertically or horizontally with no impact on performance or dispersion unlike all other non point source based loudspeakers.










Characteristic of the Ariatechnik Wave Synergy™ design is that it presents a large 'sweet spot' both vertically and horizontally with an exceptionally even response throughout the listening area, as well as a extraordinary transient response. The Wave Synergy driver is effectively two drivers properly merged into one where, unlike ordinary drive units, the high frequency unit is positioned on the back of the low frequency driver and in the proper phase alignment with the high frequency driver. As a result they are on the the same axis, so ensuring that sound energy is effectively propagates from the same point and delivered through the center of the low frequency cone as true point source. Such integration optimizes reproduction quality by providing a constant time delay over the frequency spectrum, exceptional transient performance, wide dispersion and superior harmonic alignment, all of which delivers to the listening position a natural, clean and integrated sound with greatly enhanced intelligibility, sound staging and dynamics.
