Product Details

Pioneer 36" Black Wireless Bluetooth Speaker Bar System, Model SPSB23

For Those Who Care About Sound
The Speaker Bar System, uniquely designed by legendary speaker engineer Andrew Jones to deliver excellent full-range sound from a small, simple solution audio package. Made for consumers who care about audio quality, the Speaker Bar features a composite wood curved cabinet, six individual speakers, six amplifiers (independent for each speaker) and an eight channel active digital crossover network. The combination of features offers a multitude of benefits to listeners including exceptional sound quality reproduction, wider off-axis response, higher power handling and increased dynamic headroom.

Features:

Designed For Sound

  • Composite Wood Cabinet
    Unlike most speaker bars in the market that are made of plastic, Pioneer’s Speaker Bar uses a composite wood cabinet enclosure that offers far better control of the speakers because of its resistance to unwanted resonance. The unit uses a specially designed RF molded curved enclosure that can withstand the “flexing” that occurs when the speakers are in use, especially at high volume levels, resulting in highly improved audio reproduction.
  • Six Speaker Design
    The Speaker Bar features six individual drivers, four custom 3-inch woofers, and two 1-inch soft dome tweeters. The arrangement of speakers produces a wide dispersion pattern, enabling open, more spacious stereo imaging even in larger sized rooms. The woofers feature a vented pole piece to achieve improved bass response to enhance both cinematic and audio listening. The 1-inch soft-dome tweeters are encased in a custom “wave guide” enclosure for increased output sensitivity and controlled dispersion of high-frequencies.
  • Individual Amplifiers For Each Driver
    For optimal audio output, Pioneer’s Speaker Bar uses six individual amplifiers to power each independent driver. Each amplifier produces up to 28 Watts of power (1kHz 1% THD @ 4 Ohm) to obtain increased dynamics and better overall “headroom” at any volume level.
  • Active Crossover Network
    The integrated amplifiers in the Speaker Bar are complemented by a matching active crossover network for increased sound quality. Utilizing an active crossover enabled Andrew Jones to use higher order filter points (speakers’ cutoff frequencies and steeper roll-off slopes [a.k.a. attenuation]) to achieve improved audio transitions between the woofers and the tweeters, resulting in improved speaker response, vocals and off-axis listening.
  • 6.5-Inch Subwoofer
    The Speaker Bar includes a matching wireless subwoofer featuring a 6.5-inch driver tuned to 42 Hz (-10 dB) to provide low bass frequencies. The subwoofer is powered by a built-in 50 Watt amplifier (50Hz 1% THD @ 6 Ohms) and the output level can be adjusted from the convenience of the included Speaker Bar remote.
  • Additional Features
    The Speaker Bar features Dolby Digital®Decoding and three sound modes including music, movies and dialogue. Dialogue is a late night mode that optimizes dialogue conversations and significantly reduces “loud” passages, making it ideal for late night viewing. For added convenience, the unit also offers built-in Bluetooth® connectivity to enable wireless music streaming from a smartphone device as well as a learning mode to respond to the user’s own remote control. Pioneer’s Speaker Bar comes with an optical cable and wall mounts for convenient set-up.

        Sounds great for movies, music and reg tv. If you buy this one, make sure to test the bluetooth connection for stereo sound (use PC/MAC sound preferences- Left/Right), see PIONEER website for info.

        Comments about Pioneer 36" Black Bluetooth Speaker Bar System:

        I hooked this up to my old Pioneer Kuro, which has decent speakers, and didn't notice much of a difference in sound quality. I couldn't get the digital output to work on the Kuro, so I used the digital out on my cable box. I did a lot of A/B testing of the TV speakers vs the soundbar and noticed a very slight improvement in bass, but not enough to make it worth using another remote to control the volume (the learning remote feature on the soundbar didn't work for me). I then moved the soundbars to my bedroom tv that had awful sound and it is a vast improvement. On that newer tv the analog out function worked and sound level is controlled by the tv remote, so it's a big win. Bass sound is also improved, but of course the subwoofer only engages when it receives low frequency audio on movie passages. For most tv dialog it will not do anything, as the frequencies are too high (likely greater than 20Hz).

            Great product. The little woofer really pushes the bass very well. Sound quality on the sound bar is excellent.

            Bluetooth problems

                  Comments about Pioneer 36" Black Bluetooth Speaker Bar System:

                  I originally ordered this sound bar in October. Received late October, and was defective. The bluetooth would not recognize other devices (i.e. laptop, opod, phone, etc). Called Pioneer, after waiting 45 minutes on hold they stated any of these sound bars made in September or October were defective and they were working to correct the problem. Returned to Abt and exchanged for a later model sound bar (manufactured date of October 2013). Second sound bar would not recognize the wireless subwoofer. Called Pioneer again- another 60 minute phone call, just for them to tell me they are experiencing problems with connecting the sound bar to the sub on any sound bars manufactured in October. I spoke to ABT and informed them of this and recommended they not sell this product until the problems are corrected. Safe to say I won't buy another Pioneer product
