Monitor Audio SB-3 Soundbar
Now you can add big sound to your big TV display without filling the room with speakers.
Monitor Audio's Soundbar SB-3 will complete your HD picture entertainment with the high definition sound you've been missing, and match the look of your TV with contemporary lifestyle design.
The SB-3 is custom-built for screen sizes above 60" and features three separate driver arrays for left, centre, right channels in a single cabinet. Twin C-CAM® bass drivers, twin ABRs (Auxiliary Bass Radiators) and a single C-CAM tweeter in the centre section to provide the SB-3 with higher acoustic output and power handling for critical centre channel reproduction. This is combined with individual mid-bass, tweeter and sealed ABR drivers for both left and right channels.
In larger rooms the SB-3 can be used with a partnering Monitor Audio subwoofer to deliver the best possible audio experience. Within smaller environments and systems, the SBs will deliver effortless full range audio way beyond the limits of any TV's sound system.
The new SB Series of passive soundbars will contribute the essential high definition audio element to screen entertainment from thin TVs of 50" and above. Complete with a wide range of mounting options for easy and discreet custom installation, the two super-slim SB models are engineered with flagship cabinet and driver technologies to combine efficient low-profile design with extraordinary room-filling dynamics.
The Monitor Audio SB-3 features the following key technologies:
- Individual C-CAM® (Ceramic-Coated Aluminium/Magnesium) bass/mid driver for left and right channels, twin drivers for the centre channel
- C-CAM gold dome tweeters per channel
- Individual Auxiliary Bass Reflex (ABR) for left and right channels, twin ABRs for the centre channel
- Three separate driver arrays for left, centre, right channels in a single cabinet
- Optional dedicated wall bracket
- Integrated Silicon feet provide a secure cabinet-top mounting alternative.
