Klipsch has just introduced their first horn-loaded soundbar known as the HD Theater SB 3, where it is touted to deliver detailed sound and maximized output effortlessly, although it remains to be seen whether it is good enough to live up to the press release’s word of covering “even the largest listening areas.” Still, we would like to give the soundbar the benefit of doubt, considering how Klipsch’s track record had always been pretty affable.
Applying its true principles of high efficiency, low distortion, controlled directivity, wide dynamic range and flat frequency response to the Klipsch HD Theater SB 3 soundbar, your ears basically enjoy power to the performance. Functioning as a two-way soundbar with premium drivers, the HD Theater SB 3 will rely on lightweight aluminum tweeter diaphragms that deliver distinctive high-frequency detail, in addition to new long-throw woofers for extended bass response. Not only that, the tweeters are coupled to Klipsch-exclusive Tractrix Horns which are able to reduce distortion and increase dispersion in a more direct manner to the main listening area. Part of the package includes a 10” wireless subwoofer which is housed in a MDF cabinet for distortion-free bass.
Other features include a built-in Dolby Digital decoder, a 3.5mm input, and an optional 3D Surround Mode. There is only one color choice for the Klipsch HD Theater SB 3, but we are not complaining about forking out $799.99 for a satin black finish as it arrives later this coming September. [Press Release]
