How Do Soundbars Work?

A soundbar is a slim speaker which sits under your TV and provides a better audio experience than your TV speakers would. There are a few different varieties with the likes of the Sonos Playbar being a self contained unit – it just needs power and a feed from the TV to produce great audio. Our soundbars tend to be at another level from this – for starters they are made to a custom width to match the TV (which looks better) and then they have front left, centre and front right speakers built in to the speaker. We couple these with surround speakers and an audio video receiver (an amplifier) to produce a full surround sound system from a very subtle package. In even bigger TV based home cinemas we may also install a sound bar which is just the center speaker, this means we also install Front left and right speakers independently. You can see a case study of this type of installation here.
