Great Home Theater Speakers for 32-46" Screens,
This review is from: Pinnacle Speakers S-BAR 3509 9-Element Speaker Bar Ideal for TVs 35-Inch and Up (Black) (Electronics)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This sound bar is pretty darn impressive. Right out of the box the build quality is really impressive. The manufacturing is flawless from materials, build, finish, etc. The bar comes with a couple ways of setting up. If you want it to sit on a shelf/stand it comes with a shim that adheres to the bottom of the bar to get a good angle for the speakers. For wall hanging there are is a bracket that mounts to the wall that the sound bar hangs off of. Keep in mind the speaker wires will hang down so plan on running through wall or finding a way to hide.
So, I hooked this up to my 5.1 home theater system on my 65" TV that normally runs with a Klipsch speaker system. I was really impressed with the sound, especially the center channel. The sound was really crisp and tight. I ran both movies and PS3 video games and both performed very well. The one thing though is that as I mentioned my TV is 65" meaning from side to side over 70" across. The bar is about 38" wide which is kind of middle of screen. The Amazon page states two different descriptions. In the Technical Details it states for TVs 42" or more and in the Product Description it states for TVs 35" or more. Neither technically wrong but somewhat odd. I think that ideally this would be best for TVs between 32" and 46" to optimize the sound spacing of the left and right speakers. Besides that, this sound bar is really quite impressive and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a this sort of home theater option.
Great design. Unsurpassed build quality. Superb sound. Easy setup.

I am considering this, I have a 65 as well but this looks like as wide as we can get in affordable and quality. It's been 2 yrs, you still happy with it or did you find something else?

We do still have this speaker. We are actually using it on a smaller
40+ inch tv and it works great. The quality build is still outstanding and we love the sleek style as it sits just below our wall mounted tv. It is a nice speaker set for a 3 in 1. If you wall mount it be sure to account for running speaker wire in or along the wall.
