About the GoldenEar SuperCinema® 3D Array® X
Sleek and powerful
Sleek and powerful
Sound bars are super-convenient, but they can still struggle to perform at the same level as a system with separate components. Often enough, you're left to choose between a practical, space-saving form factor and sound quality. Wouldn't be great if you could have both? Turns out, you can.
GoldenEar's award-winning SuperCinema 3D Array X incorporates fully separate left, center, and right channels into a single streamlined bar. This arrangement provides a deep, lifelike soundstage that brings together the compact design of a sound bar with the immersive experience of a traditional multi-channel sound system. It's the best of both worlds.
Optimized 3D audio
The left and right channels can be too close together on many sound bars, which causes crosstalk that compromises your sound quality and hampers accurate imaging. GoldenEar's engineers designed this bar to eliminate that distortion with proprietary 3D Array technology, which cancels the crosstalk out and keeps your sound clean. This lets the 3D Array X create a soundstage that stretches across your room in a full 180° and deliver a detailed, enveloping listening experience.
Balance and precision
The 3D Array X offers superb imaging by positioning a high-performance tweeter between two 4-1/2" drivers in each of its three channels. This arrangement allows the tweeter's smooth, subtle highs to seamlessly blend with the punchy midrange and bass provided by the woofers. These mid/bass cones also use a proprietary MVPP™ (Multi-Vaned Phase Plug) technology that increases control over their movement, keeping the sound precise and responsive.
The HVFR™ (High Velocity Folded Ribbon) tweeter is a specialty of GoldenEar's, originally designed for their impressive Triton speaker line. They squeeze air (rather than pushing it) using a low-mass, high-density folded diaphragm. This results in detailed highs that are smooth and distortion-free. The wider surface area also means wider dispersion, contributing to the bar's expansive soundstage.
Shelf or wall-mountable
Installation is pretty simple. The sound bar can be mounted on a wall using keyhole mounts or threaded brass inserts. You can also place the bar on a tabletop or shelf with adjustable center stand feet (included in the box).
What you need
Most sound bars these days are self-powered and designed as standalone sound systems. The 3D Array X requires separate amplification like a traditional loudspeaker, so you'll need a home theater receiver. You'll also need speaker wire to connect the sound bar to your receiver. Head over to our shopping guide if you need help picking out the right wire.
