Utilizing technology and componentry derived from the Andrew Jones line of award-winning home theater speakers, Pioneer’s Speaker Bar is designed with the primary goal of producing the most immersive, natural and room-filling sound experience for both movies and music.
Dedicated Power: An Amplifier for Each Speaker
Pioneer’s SP-SB23W Speaker Bar is powered by six individual amplifiers- one for each independent driver. Each amplifier produces up to 28 Watts of power for increased audio dynamics and enhanced overall “headroom” at virtually any volume level.
Bass Made Easy: Its Subwoofer is Wireless
To handle the low frequencies, the Speaker Bar system includes a wireless subwoofer featuring a 6.5-inch driver that’s powered by a built-in 50-Watt amplifier. Tuned to 42 Hz (-10 dB), the output level can be conveniently adjusted with a Speaker Bar remote.
Command Learning: Use Your Favorite Remote
The last thing most people want is another remote control unit on the coffee table. That’s why we gave the Speaker Bar system a special learning mode that lets you quickly teach it to respond to commands from virtually any remote you choose.
True Resonance: Composite Wood Cabinet
Most sound bars on the market have enclosures made of plastic. Pioneer’s Speaker Bar features a composite wood cabinet enclosure with a special curved design, helping it resist the “flexing” that can occur when the speakers are at high volume. With its superior resistance to undesirable resonance, composite wood provides more faithful sound reproduction.
Easy Listening: Set-Up is Simple

Defective BlueTooth, very good sound, unattractive and bulky
This review is from: Pioneer SP-SB23W Andrew Jones Series Bluetooth Sound Bar and Subwoofer System (Black Ash)
Pros: Very good sound quality both for movies and music. Does not create 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound, but no sound bar does.
Cons: ALERT! Do not buy this unit until the manufacturer, Pioneer, fixes a defect in the BlueTooth function, which in current units generates only mono sound, not stereo. Check the Pioneer website to determine whether/when the defect is remedied, and make sure that if you purchase a unit it has correctly-functioning stereo BlueTooth and a generous written return policy.
Other Thoughts: The bar is unusually bulky compared to many other sound bar systems, perhaps to allow the thick wood composite enclosure to provide sufficient internal space for the 4 three-inch woofers, 2 tweeters and their individual speaker amps. However, if you attempt to set this chunky bar in front of a large-screen TV with today's typical short stand, the bar will obscure the lower 1 or 2 inches of the screen and block the TV's IR control. True, you could put a thick book or board under the TV stand to raise the lower edge of the TV above the top of the sound bar, but this is a kludgey (and potentially unstable) solution.
