Premium sound meets elegant design
The AudioXperts 4TV Model 2112 delivers high-performance sound in a clean, one-piece system that sits directly under your TV. This beautiful audio console keeps a low profile, with an elegant smoked glass and aluminum design that measures barely over two inches tall. From its back-illuminated, touch-sensitive control interface, to its 10 custom-designed drivers, the 2112 oozes quality.
Where'd that sound come from?
While the look of the 2112's console grabs your attention at first, it's the sound that will stay with you from the moment you turn it on. The 10-driver combination has been exquisitely tweaked to generate maximum, full-range impact from your DVDs, Blu-rays, broadcast TV and streaming sources. Virtual surround processing invites you into the picture you're experiencing on the screen, and three listening modes (music, movie, and enhanced dialogue) provide a sound profile appropriate to the entertainment you've chosen. Enhanced dialogue mode, in particular, is handy if your ears are more, how shall I put this, experienced.
One cable gets you started
It's easy to set up: often, only one cable is needed to hook up your television and start down the path of unleashed premium audio for all your TV's programming sources. The console itself has an included, optional-use swivel base that allows you to adjust your TV's viewing angle, and the unit will learn your existing TV's remote commands for volume, on/off and muting in a matter of minutes. You won't have to deal with another easy-to-lose item on your coffee table.
Play music from your Bluetooth® devices and more
The console has a dedicated USB input for Apple® iOS® devices, plus built-in Bluetooth® with advanced aptX® audio coding for wirelessly streaming music from a compatible computer, smartphone, or tablet. Digital and analog inputs enable you to set this system up in mere minutes with practically any TV.
Note: The 4TV console includes a power-saving auto standby mode that engages if the unit detects no audio signal for 10 minutes. To wake the unit, either (1) press the designated power button on a remote that has been "learned" by the 4TV, or (2) wave your hand in front of the sensor window (near the middle of the console), then press the power button on top of the console.

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.
AudioXperts 4TV Model 2112 Reviews
Average Customer Review:
Ease of Use
I cant believe this thing.. I swear I thought it was a joke that wouldn't be able to crank or bump any real powerful sound out of a two inch tall system..Boy was I wrong. I have more than 20 years experience working,reviewing,repairing,buying and using high end audio products. And in that time,I can count on my hands how many times I've truly been shocked or amazed by a product. This is definitely one of the more memorable times! I totally underestimated this "thing".It not only sounded great but it looked cool out the box. It sounds awesome in the high end and pushes some serious vibes in the low end. Performs great on its own. I dont want to sound like a kid but I love it. I've shocked everyone who hasn't heard it yet,by cranking it up without telling them where the sound is coming from. If they ask what that is under my tv before,I just say its a sound bar or subwoofer something.. Even IF they DO ask,I still secretly put the volume up on a music video or something,and nobody has figured it out that it all was coming from the 2112. Anyways,I thought this product needed a fair review. I'm not gonna say its without its cons,but the unique pros it offers are worth way more than they're asking for it here.Shoot,I paid almost twice that before I seen it here,and honestly,I still feel it was totally worth it. 8.5 out of 10
Pros: Powerful,sleek,very low profile,quality sound production,wide surround throw,looks
Cons: dust/fingerprint magnet,no lcd menu,no front cable port,only smoked black available

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
First, the positives. It's a very nice looking unit, easy to set up, and the swivel platform is great (I gave it an extra star for this feature). The sound is not bad (better than my 55" Samsung TV's speakers), but not as good as I expected. It's not even close to surround sound, but then I didn't expect it to be. The real negatives, at least to me, are that the volume control is not very linear. The sound can be too loud on about 5, but if you turn it down to 4, it becomes too low to hear. Also, it seems to have a mind of it's own as to which mode it's in; dialogue or not, etc. When you realize it doesn't sound quite right, you have to get up and go to the unit and look at the display, and manually change it if needed. If I had bought this from a local store, I would have already returned it. Since I will have to pay the freight from Dallas to Crutchfield in VA, which will be substantial since the packaged unit weighed 73 lbs., I am still undecided. Bottom line, it's not worth even the highly discounted price now available, in my opinion.
