Flat panel TVs now have a reason to celebrate, with an incredible sound system that doesn't clutter the wall with a bunch of speakers. At only 2.75''' deep the ES-300-SNDBAR-40-BLK not only looks great, but sounds amazing too! This single soundbar is actually three independent speakers in one - consisting of left, center, and right channels. It's perfect for living room and bedroom applications with TVs 46" and larger.
Sure, squeezing this many speakers into one cabinet is quite the design challenge - but, man, is it worth it! With independent left, center and right channels you get all the benefits of a true front-stage, yet in a discreet soundbar form factor. Just connect an A/V receiver, surrounds and subwoofer for an amazing theater system.
This soundbar features an array of drivers consisting of 3/4" ferro-fluid cooled silk dome tweeters and 3" polypropylene injection woofers built with Nomex Spiders and high temperature voice-coils. For fuller low-end performance, 3" passive radiators are coupled to each active woofer. Gratuitous use of neodymium magnets delivers all the punch and performance while minimizing the depth off the wall.
For the best speaker performance in a flat panel TV application you need to balance aesthetics and acoustical performance. The design challenge here is how to put a high-performance speaker (or in this case, three) into a such a thin box. To do this, our engineers created an aluminum cabinet, which is thinner (only 2.83") and stronger than wood or plastic. This also maximizes internal cabinet volume to squeeze out every last drop of performance!
Many installations require the use of an IR repeating system; the problem is where do you hide the IR receiver? Check out this innovative approach - we've placed a knock-out right behind the grill to let you neatly hide it out of sight. Say goodbye to unsightly stuck-on IR receivers!
The IR cable and all speaker connections are made through a single terminal cup, making it easy to run wires (and hide them) in tight quarters behind a flat panel TV. Yep, we thought of that too.
Included with the soundbar are a wall bracket for mounting below the TV and a "kickstand" for placement on a shelf. If you're using one of our Strong™ TV mounts, there is also an optionalsoundbar bracket that allows the speaker to move with the TV.
