THE CUBIC VOLUME OF A ROOM
In order to operate, loudspeakers must move
air. A larger room will require larger
amounts of air to be moved to have the same
acoustic output as a small room. The maximum
recommended cubic volume room requirements
for each Angstrom MODULAR loudspeaker
MODULAR TWO + EIGHT or TEN i
MODULAR THREE + EIGHT or TEN i
MODULAR FOUR + EIGHT or TEN
950 / 1700 cu ft.
1500 / 2200 cu ft.
2000 / 2800 cu ft.
2000 / 4000 cu ft.
2500 / 5000 cu ft.
3000 / 6000 cu ft.
ROOM CUBIC VOLUME EXAMPLES:
3m x 3.65m x 2.4m =
26.28 cu metres
3.65m x 4.27m x 2.4m = 37.4 cu metres
4.27m x 4.88m x 2.4m = 50 cu metres
4.27m x 5.49m x 2.4m = 56.3 cu metres
4.27m x 6.1m x 2.4m = 62.5 cu metres
4.88m x 6.7m x 2.4m = 78.5 cu metres
4.88 x 6.7m x 3m = 98.1 cu metres
4.88m x 7.3m x 3m = 106.9 cu metres
10' x 12' x 8' = 960 cu ft.
12' x 14' x 8' = 1344 cu ft.
14' x 16' x 8' = 1792 cu ft.
14' x 18' x 8' = 2016 cu ft.
14' x 20' x 8' = 2240 cu ft.
16' x 22' x 8' = 2816 cu ft.
16' x 22' x 10' = 3520 cu ft.
16' x 24' x 10' = 3890 cu ft.
For rooms over 1800 cu ft., because of the
furnishings and shape of the room, it may be
desirable to use a MODULAR EIGHT or TEN i
LFT with the system. Rooms of over 3000 cu.
ft. may require 2 LFTs. The MODULAR EIGHT
and TENi may be connected to the 'low level'
or 'sub out' output on the
receiver/amplifier. This connection limits
the output from the amplifier to the LFT to
80 Hz and below and would be used for home
The MODULAR EIGHT may be umbilically
connected to additional MODULAR EIGHTs as
required. For an audio versus an audio/video
application, connect either the MODULAR
EIGHT or TEN i via the 'high level' or
loudspeaker outputs to the 'high level'
inputs on the LFT. The MODULAR EIGHT will
require the use of the MODULAR 14, LFED (low
frequency effects device). In this
configuration the LFT 'frequency control'
operates through its entire range of 50Hz to
180Hz. This creates true 3-way loudspeakers
systems of the MODULAR TWO, THREE and FOUR.
It is also possible to use either the
MODULAR THREE or FOUR as the front
loudspeakers mated with MODULAR TWOs for the
rear in 5.1 and 6.1 or rear back in 7.1
systems. Any loudspeaker combination is
possible depending on room anomalies, and
your personal needs.

possibilities are packed with every modular
The MODULAR Eight may be placed flat on the
floor and hidden from view.
