The Klipsch BAR 48 is a high performance 3.1 sound bar. It is a plug and play solution offering a massive upgrade to average TV sound. The Klipsch Bar 48 Soundbar features a dedicated centre channel speaker for enhanced vocal clarity, as well as surround sound capabilities to take your movies to the next level.

The BAR 48 is crafted from high-quality wood materials, just like legendary Klipsch speakers. Measuring only 2.8” inches tall, the BAR 48 is designed to fit below your TV regardless of wall mounting or table top use.

Three 1” tweeters with 90° x 90° Tractrix® horns deliver crisp highs, while four 3” woofers complete the enhanced sound with clear vocals and dynamic soundtracks. Horn loaded drivers direct the sound to more efficiently bring the detail to the listener.

The built-in Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, DTS, DTS-HD processing enables powerful cinema experiences with discrete processing for dialog and (optional) surround channels. DTS Virtual:X-ready, the Bar 48 will later enable you to add height to your surround experience via a USB firmware update.

The BAR 48 comes with a powerful wireless 8” subwoofer that you can place anywhere in your room. Wireless 2.4 GHz technology automatically connects the sound bar and the subwoofer together. There is also a subwoofer output meaning you can add a second subwoofer to your setup or simply replace the included wireless subwoofer with the subwoofer of your choice.

Works great with all Bluetooth-enabled smartphones, tablets and computers - allowing you to play music direct from your device.

A full-size wireless remote control with discrete source selection and subwoofer adjustment is included. Grab the remote off the coffee table and see what you’re pressing with automatically-activated LED backlight.

Klipsch enhanced virtual surround gives you an engulfing surround sound effect without all the additional speakers and wires. Dialog mode increases dialogue volume for enhanced vocal clarity without increasing ambient sounds. Night mode adjusts dynamic range for quieter listening environments.

Add the optional SURROUND 3 speakers to make this 3.1 sound bar into a full-fledged 5.1 surround sound system capable of delivering Dolby and DTS 5.1 formats natively.
