STEALTH SUB It's not enough for a subwoofer to boom you anymore - today's bass boxes gotta blend in, too. The triangular design of the Atlantic Technology 10 CSB sub will ensure it keeps a low profile in the corner of your home theater - that is, until a movie soundtrack or drum solo calls upon its 10-inch driver and 180-watt amplifier to rock the house.
