In preparation for our up and coming article that discusses what's in a truly high end speaker and the common cost cutting approaches some companies often make to deliver a high value product, we sat down with the well established and revered brand Atlantic Technolgy to get their views. They discuss the importance of using high quality parts with tight tolerances and even more importantly having clear and solid design objectives. Budget vs non-compromised designs are discussed focusing on the importance of proper design execution and solid engineering in crossover design, parts selection and cabinet construction and bracing. Take a tour of how Atlantic Technology approaches the humbling art and science of loudspeaker design.

Atlantic Techonology design philosophy, engineering and craftmanship that goes into their products doesn't matter . At best in a hypothetical double-blind they can only be similarly good to Axioms.
