Phase Technology this week started shipping a new soundbar, the ultra-thin Teatro TSB3.0, which has left, right and center channels paired with what Phase is calling two “Spatial Field Expanders (SFE).” The unit offers a passive 8 ohm design, allowing users to integrate the soundbar with their existing AV system. It incorporates two 3” mineral-filled polypropylene, ultra-long throw woofers with rubber surrounds per channel and one ¾” silk/synthetic blend soft dome tweeter per channel. SFE 1″ full-range aluminum inverted drivers are mounted on the sides. Phase Technology’s Absolute Phase crossovers are used to improve transitions and phase matching among all drivers. Another Phase technology, the “Enhanced Voice Technology (EVT),” is available via a front panel switch. When the switch is turned on, frequencies associated with human speech are augmented to provide easier-to-hear dialogue.
The TSB3.0’s extruded aluminum, ported, mono-frame cabinet has a curved profile with a depth of only 1.5” at the TV; the total depth is 2.5”. It measures 43” wide and includes a powder-coated steel grille. Tabletop and wall mount options are included. More information is available here.
