Sunfire's ultra-compact ATMOS XTATM265 offers tight, powerful bass that belies its small size. This mighty mite packs 1,400 watts of power, a 6-1/2" extra-long-throw woofer, and a 6-1/2" passive radiator into a cabinet that can easily fit into even the smallest home theater, bedroom, or den. You may not see where the bass is coming from, but you'll hear natural, room-filling lows that put some excitement back into your movie nights and music listening sessions.
Sunfire packed an impressive amount of power and sophisticated processing into the ATMOS XTATM265's tiny enclosure.
One of the keys to the ATMOS's powerful performance comes courtesy of its advanced, extra-long-throw woofer with a Sunfire-designed Asymmetrical Cardioid Surround. This unique surround material uses varying wall thickness that allows the cone to move back and forth farther, and with far greater accuracy, to move lots more air than woofers of comparable size. The result is crystal-clear, high-definition bass with exceptionally high output levels.
The sub's 1,400-watt RMS amplifier uses Sunfire's exclusive Tracking Downconverter™ power supply to delivers high levels of current with greater efficiency than conventional amps, for huge power reserves with minimal physical size and cool-running operation.
Sunfire's auto room correction technology lets you use the included calibration microphone to optimize the ATMOS's output for your specific room. Simply place the microphone in your main listening position and the sub will find just the right amount of "oomph" for your music and movies.
Line-level inputs and outputs let you easily connect this sub to most audio systems. Its variable back-panel volume, crossover, and phase controls help you fine-tune the bass to your liking. And the sub's black brushed aluminum cabinet looks right at home with almost any room decor.
A powered subwoofer gives you bass you can feel as well as hear. Our customers love the depth and impact their subs add to music and movies. We hear comments like "it brings out sounds I didn't know existed in discs I've watched a million times." Powered subwoofers aren't just for big bass that rattles your picture frames; they can also deliver tight, accurate lows. If you haven't shopped for a powered sub in a while, you might be surprised at how small they get. Look for an ultra-compact model if you want to tuck your sub away under an end table or in a corner.

Dual 6.5" Woofers: The Sunfire Atmos powered subwoofer incorporates two side-firing 6.5" drivers that can move back & forth approximately 5x more than a normal subwoofer. This gives it a lot of air moving capacity which allows for enormous bass performance. Even though the two drivers share the acoustic output, sometimes one driver will appear to be moving more than the other. They both move the same amount only when operating at the limit of their excursion and power output, or when bass requirements and music requirements demand maximum output from the system. Otherwise, the power is shared between the two drivers in a way that depends on the momentary amplitude and the momentary musical spectrum. It is normal for one or the other to move more or less than its mate during operation.
Asymmetrical Cardiod Surround (ACS): Sunfire engineers designed a unique Asymmetrical Cardiod Surround for these woofers. The ACS got its name because of the varying thickness of the wall of the surround from one side to the other. This unique design allows up to 1.8" of "throw" with tight, well defined bass that combines extreme output with very low distortion and a quality of sound that is unique to Atmos.
1400W Amplifier: The power amplifier within the Sunfire powered subwoofer is capable of delivering over 1400 watts for extreme dynamic bass response without distortion.
Aluminum Cabinet: The Sunfire Atmos powered subwoofer features a heavy-duty aluminum cabinet with four integrated rubber feet. The enclosure is sealed (acoustic suspension design) for tight, accurate bass response. No grilles are provided.
Auto Room EQ: The Atmos subwoofer has an automatic equalization system which will tailor the subwoofer output to compensate for any room effects. Subwoofer performance is greatly affected by the room in which it is situated, and the positioning within the room. The room effects will boost and cut the output levels reaching your listening position. The Sunfire Atmos powered sub can automatically adjust for these room effects. It measures the actual frequency response using the supplied measurement microphone. Then it automatically compensates for peaks or dips and smoothes out the response.
Soft Clipping Circuit: A compressor circuit kicks in automatically if the input signal level reaches a level that would overload the driver. This maintains a ceiling on the output without clipping. If the input signal is driven even further, a Soft Clipping circuit is enabled to prevent driver damage.
Controls: Controls for adjusting the volume, crossover frequency and phase, allow the subwoofer to be perfectly matched to any listening environment and audio components.
Connections: A complete array of controls allow the Sunfire Atmos powered sub to be perfectly integrated with any stereo or multichannel audio system, and tuned for optimum performance in any room. All RCA inputs and outputs are gold-plated for superior signal transfer.
Auto Turn-On/Standby: The powered subwoofer has a special power circuit which automatically turns the powered subwoofer on when a signal is fed to the loudspeaker and turns it off when there is no signal present (approximately 15 minutes).
12V Trigger Input: The trigger input can be used to automatically turn on the subwoofer from Standby mode. To do this, connect +12 VDC to the positive (+) terminal, and ground to the negative (-) terminal. Home Theater preamplifiers such as the Sunfire Theater Grand series, have matching 12 VDC Trigger outputs. When they are turned on, the subwoofer will turn on.
Placement: Although low frequencies are non-directional, factors such as room reflections, standing waves, resonance and absorption will strongly affect your subwoofer's performance. Moving the subwoofer from one location to another can have a major effect on the bass response. The Sunfire Atmos powered subwoofer is designed to be placed in a corner for optimum performance.
For the new bass sound that's in the new music of today [ Anthony Jan 30, 2016 ]
The owner's manual states: "If you are using two ATMOS subwoofers, make sure they are connected using the SLAVE output of the first sub to the SLAVE input of the second sub. Connect the mic to the first subwoofer only and follow the procedures for the Auto EQ; the EQ adjustments will then affect both subwoofers." [ Larry Nov 12, 2015 ] Staff
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: I don't see why you couldn't place the subwoofer in a cabinet. The only consideration I would have would be if the subwoofer is turned all the way up there may be some vibration from the cabinet. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy May 18, 2014 ] Staff
