The SurroundBar is designed to complete your high-definition TV experience and is a perfect match for flat-panel TVs.
SDA technology projects sound to both sides and behind you.
As with conventional 5.1-channel systems, you'll hear the best surround effects when you're centered directly in front of the SurroundBar. However--unlike conventional 5.1 systems--the SurroundBar delivers surround sound regardless of how close or how far away you sit.
While it's technically a single speaker, the SurroundBar contains seven active drive units, three tweeters, and inputs for all five primary surround channels: front left/center/right and rear left/right. Multiple drive units spaced roughly the same distance apart as your ears allow the speaker to keep you from discerning the actual sound sources. Instead, it will seem as though sound is coming from all around and behind you.
Mount the SurroundBar below your flat-panel TV, or use the included cradle for a shelf or set-top placement.
For even more spacious sound, you can use the SurroundBar with your existing surround speakers, too. In such an arrangement you can wire the surround outputs from your receiver to your separate surround speakers instead of to the SurroundBar's rear-speaker terminals, using the SurroundBar for the front left, center, and right channels only.
Simplified color-coded hookup with five channels directly from the home theater receiver.
The SurroundBar must be mounted horizontally to function properly. Placement directly above or below your TV screen pointed in the same direction as the screen will give the best coordination between your surround sound and the on screen images. Wall mounting, shelf mounting, table mounting, or stand mounting all work equally well. However, walls or other large obstacles within 3 feet of the sides of the SurroundBar will reduce the effectiveness of its surround delivery. Cross-corner locations will work just fine.
The supplied 25-foot, 10-conductor cable is color-coded and clearly marked for easy hookup.

I had been looking for a high end sound bar speaker and this item certainly fit my needs. This was a floor model that was in excellent condition at less that half the retail price! Read morePublished on July 27, 2011 by Oscar Blanco
Surround sound from this speaker is pretty good. I use this as the LS-L-C-R-RS speakers as well as a sub and two in the rear RL-RR for 7. Read morePublished on March 26, 2010 by ART
Good looking but lacks "umph". Not as good at simulating Surrond as I hoped for the price.Published on October 20, 2008 by Joe C
I'll be short and sweet, it sounds good, not great. It does look great and really cleans up a room. If you want something that comes close to a 5. Read morePublished on July 23, 2008 by PCGuy
