Give your TV a stylish complement.
Designed to fit elegantly alongside your flat-panel TV – or wherever you’d like using the included mounting hardware – the SB 16 soundbar speaker is a sleek 2.1-channel system housing left and right speakers with built-in amplifiers. Thanks to digital signal processing (DSP) with virtual 3-D surround circuitry, the soundbar is a classic overachiever that skillfully works in tandem with a wireless subwoofer to transform the flat sound of your TV into a complete surround-sound experience.
A wireless subwoofer you can put anywhere With a grand total of zero wires and connections going into the soundbar, the SB 16’s wireless subwoofer offers you unprecedented flexibility in terms of placement. With a 10-inch (250mm) magnetically shielded woofer and built-in 100-watt amplifier, the wireless subwoofer delivers an impactful one-two bass punch when combined with the soundbar speaker. And thanks to a down-firing bass-reflex enclosure, you can also expect more realistic bass performance and higher bass output, since the subwoofer loads against the floor instead of against surrounding walls.
Impressive 3-D virtual surround processing Whether you’re watching a sitcom or a blockbuster movie, you always want to feel like part of the action developing on screen. That’s why the SB 16 produces a complete 3-D virtual surround-sound experience for anyone sitting in front of the soundbar. Bring home a rich, full-bodied theatrical experience without having to add a bunch of extra speakers – or merely give another level of depth to traditional stereo playback. It’s your choice. Just prepare to be impressed.
Receive lots of input (digital and analog) from multiple sources Since it comes with optical digital, coaxial digital and analog input connections, the SB 16 gives you the flexibility to run several different kinds of systems. Play your TV, DVD or Blu-ray Disc player, and satellite or cable tuner with your soundbar – without having to unplug wires every time you change systems. Optical digital and coaxial digital inputs also let you avoid unnecessary electrical connections, so you can experience better sound and image with less signal corrosion over time.
Eliminate interference with magnetically shielded speakers. Given the eye-catching aesthetics of your SB 16 soundbar speaker, there's a good chance that you’ll want to put it on display right next to your flat-panel TV. And you can, thanks to the interference-blocking magnetic shielding – also called video shielding – in the soundbar and subwoofer. With this quality-enforcing feature, you can avoid interruptions to the magnetic field in the TV by placing your soundbar underneath your TV (within 2 feet/60cm).
Tailor performance to location with a dual-position EQ switch. To improve your system’s performance no matter where you place it, your SB 16’s soundbar includes a dual-position EQ switch that adjusts the soundbar’s center-loudspeaker bass. If you’ve mounted your soundbar on a wall, flip the switch to the Wall position for the most natural-sounding bass performance. And if it’s on a table, simply set the EQ switch to the Table position to achieve the same benefit.
Optimize bass performance with a crossover setting. The SB 16 soundbar system performs exceptionally wherever you put it – due in part to features such as the SB 16’s crossover adjustment, which helps your system effect smooth transitions for bass frequencies between the subwoofer and soundbar. The higher you set the crossover setting, the higher in frequency the subwoofer will operate – and the more its bass will overlap that of the soundbar speaker. It’s just one more special feature that preserves great sound quality for your surround-sound experience.
