Our take on the Artison Studio Series SoundBar

by Woody Sherman
Artison

Sound bar speakers: room-filling sound with less clutter

Add big sound to your TV without a roomful of speakers. Sound bars require minimal space and wiring, and their sleek designs complement today's flat-panel TVs. Most sound bars have their own built-in amplification, so you won't need to use a home theater receiver. Some models use advanced surround processing and carefully aimed speaker drivers to simulate the effects of a full home theater audio system.

The Artison Studio Series sound bars are designed to match your television

The Artison Studio Series sound bar comes with a custom grille designed to match your television (TV not included).

Hiding in plain sight

If you've made an investment in a good A/V receiver, but don't want to think of finding room for three separate speakers on the viewing end of your room, let us suggest a décor-friendly alternative that delivers true high-fidelity sound. Take a look at these premium left/center/right channel speakers from Artison — the Artison Studio Series. One sound bar mounted under the television handles your home theater's entire front soundstage. Plus, the sound bar hides in plain sight, as it comes with a custom-sized grille to precisely match your television's design. Everything you'll need to attach your Artison Studio Series sound bar to your television is included. The finished installation will look like one integrated unit, and the only thing that will be competing for your attention will be your TV's spectacular picture.

The sound bar might be out of sight, but it certainly won't be out of mind. The Studio Series sound bars feature a pair of side-firing "stage" tweeters on their outside ends, which aim toward the rear wall at a 45-degree angle. The high frequencies reflect off the walls and the end result is a dramatically widened soundstage. Attention to detail pervades the rest of the carefully planned design as well. The sound bar's solid extruded aluminum enclosure is rigid and vibration-resistant. Woven carbon-fiber woofers make for even, dynamic response. And specially designed 1" tweeters ensure that all dialogue and effects will stay clear, intelligible, and balanced.

  • Studio 46-SB model designed for monitors and televisions 46" and up

Features

LCR Soundbar Speaker: The Artison Studio 46 SoundBar is a 3-channel (Left, Center, and Right) passive LCR loudspeaker which delivers the left, center, and right audio information from your AV surround sound system out of a single speaker. This slim three-channel solution can easily mount to your flat-panel TV or sit in front of your plasma or LCD television without blocking the screen. A custom grille (sold separately) that matches the color and width of your television is available, allowing the SoundBar to blend in aesthetically. The Studio 46 SoundBar performs very well for movies and music soundtracks.

3 Channel Driver System: The Artison Studio 46 SoundBar features six 3.5" Long-Throw Carbon Fiber midrange drivers, three 1" DX25 Super Audio Tweeters, and two 0.75" Stage Tweeters. The stage-tweeters positioned on each end of the SoundBar provide an off-axis effect for the front-channels. All three speaker channels have independent air chambers and crossovers. The Left, Center, and Right speaker sections of the Studio 46 SoundBar are divided as follows.

  • Left Channel: One 1" DX25 Super Audio Tweeter, two 3.5" Long-Throw Carbon Fiber midrange drivers, and one 0.75" Stage Tweeter.
  • Center Channel: One 1" DX25 Super Audio Tweeter and two 3.5" Long-Throw Carbon Fiber midrange drivers.
  • Right Channel: One 1" DX25 Super Audio Tweeter, two 3.5" Long-Throw Carbon Fiber midrange drivers, and one 0.75" Stage Tweeter.

Stage Tweeters: To expand the soundstage beyond the limits of the soundbar speaker itself, the Studio 46 Soundbar features a pair of Stage Tweeters on the outside ends of the enclosure. These tweeters aim toward the rear wall at a 45° angle. The sound reflects off the wall and dramatically widens the sonic image.

Spring Post Speaker Terminals: The Artison Studio 46 SoundBar will require three discrete audio signal from an external multi-channel amplifier. The SoundBar speaker features three pair of gold-plated spring-post terminals (Left, Center, and Right). The spring-post terminals will accommodate 16 gauge to 12 gauge speaker wire.

Extruded Aluminum Enclosure (Ported): The Studio 46 SoundBar employs an extruded aluminum enclosure. This enclosure provides a very rigid and resonant free chassis on which to mount the midrange drivers and tweeters. The SoundBar speaker utilizes a bass-reflex enclosure design with 3 front-firing ports for added bass response and efficiency.

Mounting Options: The included television mounting brackets allow Studio 46 SoundBar speaker to attach to virtually any flat-panel TV (1"-3.6" deep). In a tabletop installation, simply screw the brackets into the standard VESA mounting points and adjust it to match the bezel either above or below the TV. When using a fixed, tilt, or articulating wall mount, the television mounting brackets are sandwiched between the mount and the TV. You also simply choose to sit the Soundbar speaker in front of your flat-panel TV.

Custom Grille: The Studio 46 SoundBar is so named because it will fit on TVs measuring just 46" wide with a custom grille (sold separately). Of course the grille can be ordered in any size larger than the minimum to match whatever TV size you have. Artison offers the ability to specify the exact model of your TV and have a grille exactly match the width dimension. Since the grille is the only element of the speaker that is visible after the installation, it appears to be an integral part of the TV

Note: Please check Crutchfield's Artison Custom Grille Finder for your television's custom SoundBar grille. No grille is included with speaker.
