But totally not bass related!

 

Triggered. Offended. On the march against your beliefs!

Never underestimate what 1000 tweeters can do if they rise up together.

I have a customer that has had me design a active soundbar. Not my first thought for an ideal two channel, but I have it sorted out so it should be usable. Buddy just needs to pay up so we can build and test it.

Now for the hate mail to roll in....

The sad truth is soundbars are WAF friendly.....they are here to stay, regardless of their limitations....and compared to the speakers in flatscreens, they are an upgrade.....

Yup. They exist because tv's can't fit decent enough speakers in them.

 

I have zero issues with soundbars. They have their place.

Yup, soundbars do have their place. That place is "Not in my systems". One can only compromise so far.

 

We only had to destroy one set of "small" speakers to understand that a typical set of small speakers just won't survive in our home.

Scott's idea of a soundbar is a pair of 15's flanking a pair of 8's and a CD on a 90x90deg waveguide.

Haha! Yeah! Even I'd say that's just a set of speakers and not a soundbar. :P

I can't find a good picture out there of a horizontal DIYSG 1899, but I was recently reminded of those old TV commercials for Foster's Beer.  I can only imagine:

 

"How to speak Australian ..."

 

[... depiction of horizontal 1899 ...]

 

"soundbar!"
