Artison SB-1 SoundBar
Our take on the Artison SB-1 SoundBar by Crutchfield's Kristen Schaub
Get a full soundstage with just one speaker
Artison's sleek SB-1 SoundBar gives you engaging home theater sound without the need for separate left, right, and center channel speakers. This sleek three-channel speaker is designed to work with your home theater receiver, and attaches directly to your TV for an unobtrusive look. Best of all, it delivers exceptional sound with all your movies, video games, and music.
Innovative driver design for rich, detailed sound
A specially designed motor structure allows the SoundBar's small woofer cones to move farther, and reproduce a wider range of frequencies than is usually possible with such compact speakers. Six long-throw woofers and three tweeters deliver crisp dialogue and accurate effects that'll easily surpass what your TV's tiny speakers can deliver. A side-firing tweeter on each end of the SoundBar disperses high frequencies for a wider soundstage with immersive depth.
Custom grilles to match your TV
The SB-1 features a sturdy black aluminum cabinet, and can be mounted above or below a plasma or LCD TV using the included universal mounting bar and your TV's standard wall-mounting holes. You also get a custom grille to match the width and color of your TV, which sits flush with the TV's bezel. Use our Artison Custom Grille Finder to add the grille to your order.
Complete your Artison home theater setup
Note: Custom grille ships directly from Artison, and can only be delivered within the 48 contiguous United States.

Overview: The Artison SoundBar (SB-1) 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. The SoundBar has an overall height under 4-inches and performs very well for movies and music soundtracks. 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.
Mounting: The Artison SoundBar is designed to attach directly to many flat-panel display 37" (diagonal) or larger, whether the flat-panel uses a table-top stand or is wall-mounted; using the supplied hardware. The SoundBar can be mounted either above or below the flat-panel display and is made to blend aesthetically through the use of a custom made grille (sold separately) that matches the width and color of your flat-panel television. The SoundBar's mounting bracket can also be used as a table-top stand to sit the SoundBar in front of your flat-panel TV. The mounting-bracket features a foam-padded bottom to protect your TV stand, cabinet, or shelf. In addition, the SoundBar can be mounted directly to the wall with the appropriate hardware (not supplied).
Note: SoundBar Grilles (sold separately) are available to match the width and complement the color of select flat-panel displays from 37" (diagonal) and above. Please check Crutchfield's "Artison Custom Grille Finder" for your television's custom SoundBar grille. No grille is included with speaker.
Enclosure: The Artison SoundBar features a black anodized aluminum cabinet. The SoundBar utilizes a bass-reflex enclosure design with 3 front-firing ports for added bass response and efficiency.
Drivers: The Artison SoundBar features six 3" MMAG woofers, three 1" silk dome-tweeters, and two 1" stage tweeters. The stage-tweeters positioned on each end of the SoundBar provide an off-axis effect for the front-channels. The Left, Center, and Right speaker sections of the SoundBar are divided as follows.
- Left: two 3" MMAG woofers, 1" silk dome-tweeter, and 1" stage tweeter
- Center: two 3" MMAG woofers and 1" silk dome-tweeter
- Right: two 3" MMAG woofers, 1" silk dome-tweeter, and 1" stage tweeter
Low Reluctance Return Path and Multiple Air Gap Technology: Low Reluctance Return Path and Multiple Magnetic Air Gap Technologies were used to design the Mid Bass/Mid Range Drivers of the Artison SoundBar. These technologies allow the use of small diameter 3-inch drivers with a very long linear throw of a 1/2-inch to deliver very high quality full-range sound.
- Low Reluctance Return Path: redirects the magnetic flux to help the tiny woofers reproduce lower frequencies
- Multiple Magnetic Air Gap: uses extra spaces in the motor and a shorter voice coil to reduce the overall mass of the motor and increase the speakers' efficiency
Speaker Connections: The Artison SoundBar will require three discrete audio signal from an external multi-channel amplifier. The Artison SoundBar features three pair of gold-plated spring-post terminals (Left, Center, and Right). The speaker wire gauge required is depending upon wire length run; 16 Gauge is suggested as the minimum size.
