James Loudspeaker Adds 2.1 Format LR-S Sound Bars Full-Range Speaker is Intended for Commercial or Residential Flat-Panel Display ApplicationsBy RS Staff Published: January 29, 2018 ⋅ Updated: April 15, 2019 James Loudspeaker has introduced a series of 2.1 sound bars, producing left and right-channel audio as well as bass energy from a center-mounted built-in subwoofer. These LR-S format sound bars, which can be customized to match nearly any flat-panel display, are ideal for bringing clarity and full-range sound to applications where an external subwoofer is impractical. James Loudspeaker initially engineered the LR-S sound bar solutions based on market demand from commercial integrators seeking premium audio for boardrooms, conference rooms, lobbies, retail showrooms, and nightclubs. Residential integrators also have adopted the LR-S format for bedrooms and other zones where a flat-panel TV is present but surround sound is not required. Currently available in the company’s SPL5, SPL6 and SPL8 Series sound bars, the LR-S versions offer high-output, superb clarity and bass extension below 60Hz from nearly any size form factor. The 2.1 configuration of the LR-S sound bars make them a perfect match to the James Loudspeaker A2.1 three-channel amplifier, which features onboard crossovers and independent controls for easy system calibration. James Loudspeaker sound bars are built from aircraft-grade aluminum for strength, sonic performance, and durability when used for outdoor or marine applications. Each sound bar features proprietary aluminum cone woofers and either aluminum or beryllium dome quad tweeters for unsurpassed dispersion and musicality. All LR-S sound bars can be custom fit and painted to match any display or décor. Each bar comes with a matching aluminum perforated grille. LR-S sound bars can be mounted directly to any TV or wall-mounted using available brackets. The James Loudspeaker LR-S sound bars are available now with pricing that starts at $3,500 MSRP.
