The SB-3 from Monitor Audio has been designed to offer the convenience of a typical soundbar – easy installation, less clutter and discrete appearance whilst still giving customers the performance and flexibility of a complete AV system.
The SB-3 is custom-built for screen sizes above 60″ and features three separate driver arrays for front left, centre and front right channels, all in a single stylish cabinet. The important centre channel section includes twin C-CAM bass drivers, twin ABRs (Auxiliary Bass Radiators) and a single C-CAM tweeter to help provide the SB-3 with higher acoustic output and power handling. The left and right sections each employ individual mid-bass, tweeter and sealed ABR drivers.
Braced for maximum rigidity and further strengthened by Monitor Audio’s innovative bolt-through driver mountings, the SB-3’s high-density cabinet is finished with an acoustically transparent cloth and capped at either end with stylish brushed aluminium finials for a beautifully discreet designer look that will complement the style of any flat screen display.
High quality, low profile terminals are recessed to facilitate flush-to-wall installation (when using the optional low profile wall mount bracket) allowing for easy cable access, pre-alignment and fixing. Integrated Silicon feet provide a secure, stable base should you want to sit the SB-3 on top of a cabinet or shelf.
It is also very easy to upgrade the SB-3 to a full 5.1 home theatre system simply by adding an active subwoofer and a pair of rear speakers – choose from on-wall, in-ceiling or floorstanding models to complement your decor.
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
