File this one under “I can’t believe that wasn’t already a thing.” Klipsch has just released a new soundbar that, in the grand old company tradition, employs horn-loaded aluminum tweeters (two of them), to deliver that unmistakable Klipsch sound that so many of us love. Interestingly, this is purely a two-channel soundbar, but it also employs some internal processing (along with Dolby Digital decoding) to create a simulated surround-sound-like effect. In addition to the four 3.5-inch (8.9cm) long-throw IMG drivers and the aforementioned two 0.78-inch (20mm) aluminum compression driver tweeters mated to dual 90° x 90° Tractrix® Horns, the HD Theater SB 3 Soundbar comes with a 10-inch ported, down-firing fiber composite cone sub, which brings the total system’s frequency response down to an impressive 28Hz.
Also included in the box are a pair of soundbar cradles, a wall-mounting template, one credit card-sized remote, one 1.8-meter digital optical cable, and one 1.5-meter dual RCA cable.
The HD Theater SB 3 Soundbar is available now for $799.99 in any color you like, so long as it’s satin black.
